See the dogs come running
Smelling blood now
To an open sore
On the parasite
Countless hunts have fallen
Hard to number
Damnation's whore
Is looking for a victim tonight
With an angry soul
And a wicked design
Your will cannot endure
And your heart is torn away

I was caught up in the moment
You were alone and
You seemed hot as the light
Even though I felt cold inside
When you told me it would be alright
I had given up control and
I didn't focus hard enough to see
The warning signs
Your heart is serpentine

Damn what I'm becoming
One of them now
Just an opened door
On an endless night
Dark desire burning
In my blood now
How can I be sure?
I don't know if I'll be able to fight
With a tortured soul
And an honest design
My will cannot endure
If my heart is torn away

I was caught up in the moment
You were alone and
You seemed hot as the light
Even though I felt cold inside
When you told me it would be alright
I had given up control and
I didn't focus hard enough to see
The warning signs
Your heart is serpentine

Now that I've been torn apart
Will there be an end to this?
Will there finally be release?
Will I finally rest in peace?
I'm determined to believe
My prayers will be received
With a tortured soul
And an honest design
My will cannot endure
As my heart is torn away

I was caught up in the moment
You were alone and
You seemed hot as the light
Even though I felt cold inside
When you told me it would be alright
I had given up control and
I didn't focus hard enough to see
The warning signs
Your heart is serpentine

The warning signs
Your heart is serpentine
You are personified
Your heart is serpentine

    He is looking back at how his love suddenly left him, for someone else and never told him why she left. His rage turns him to think that her heart was cursed or "serpentine" i'm going through this now, i can connect sort of.

    On my point of view:

    It tells about someone who uses her sexual tendency and good look to prey some week guys. And it can be otherways, some guy preys week women.

    It is about meeting a person at a low time in your life and either being too blinded by you feelings for them or for them to portray themselves to be a completely different person from what they really are. Then in the end they show exactly what kind of person they truly are and how they prey on the weak. They suck the life out of you and use you just like a succubus or an incubus.

    I think this song is talking about how he was low and looking for happiness and someone used him. Not entirely sure but that's what it sounds like.
