It's been a long time
Since I wore this rattlesnake smile
And a lotta my friends haven't seen it in quite a while
I feel my eyes rollin' deep inside my head
And there's a feeling of misconception in the air
Yeah, I'm startin' to see
Yeah, I do believe
I used to have a soft southern glowing face
I used to leave my heartaches with the chase
When you get stung with the heart of a little child
Well, that's how you get that rattlesnake smile
You better keep your distance
In this tangled shape I'm in
Now no one had better touch me right now
In this cold-blooded thick skin
Oh I said you better run real fast
When you hear that rattlin' sound
Well, you better run real fast, man,
Or this one's gonna knock you down
I sit alone and try to she'd this skin that I'm live in
Trying to clear my vision once again
Hah, well, I ain't no good to no one no how, not right now
'Cause I forgot to run myself and I got run down
Do I look like something you can put in a fuckin' cage!
Come over here and gimme a kiss
Yeah, I'm startin' to see
Yeah, I do believe
Better keep your distance
From this tangled shape I'm in
Now no one had better touch me right now
In this cold-blooded thick skin
Better, well, well
Now I said you better run real fast
When you hear that rattlin' sound
Oh I said you better run real fast
Or this one's gonna knock you down
And I sit alone in the desert rain
With my tail in the air
Ohhhhhhh
