THE SERPENT'S HOLD

I don't feel good
The serpent has its hold
Of my body
It's embrace is cold

I was free once
We all are, when young
I wasn't shameful
Of the things I'd done

Now the viper
Wants to take me down
No strength to fight it
With my weakness found

~~~*Chorus*~~~
There are warnings flashing
I can hear my screams
Release my soul
And get away from me
Confining movement
And constricting life
I am it's victim
I will surely die
~~*~~

I was wasted
Fell on rough terrain
Struggled through it
And overpowered pain

Rose up the master
At least assumed I did
Here comes the serpent
From where the evils' hid

I was submissive
Knew that it was wrong
I faced the viper
The venom was too strong

~~~*2nd Chorus*~~~
There are warnings flashing
I can hear my screams
Release my soul
And get away from me
Confining movement
And constricting life
I am it's victim
I will surely die
~~*~~

I was strangled
By the serpents hold
Here lies my body
So condemned and cold

You remember me
And the fight I've lost
Keep your innocence
No matter what the cost

Avoid the vipers
Heed the horrors told
Don’t be a victim
Of the serpents hold

~~~*Final Chorus*~~~
There were warnings flashing
I could hear my screams
To release my soul
And get away from me
Confining movement
And constricting life
I offered up myself
Did not escape this time
~~*~~

Avoid the vipers
Heed the horrors told
Don’t be a victim
Of the serpents hold
