You can't hold me, I'm too slippery
I do no sleepin', I get lonely
You can touch me if you want to
I got poison, I just might bite you

Lie in circles on the sunlight
Shine like diamonds on a dark night
Ain't no mercy in my smilin'
Only fangs and sweet beguiling

Future, he don't try to find me
Skin I been through dies behind me
Solid hollow wrapped in hatred
Not a drop of venom wasted

You can slip in, try to find me
Hold your breath and flat deny me
It makes no difference to my thinkin'
I'll be here when you start sinkin'
