Breathing,
Making your way through the opening.
Corduroy princes and pretty things
Quietly turning away.

Leaning
Into the arms of your city life;
Glorious stars in a shitty sky,
Glimmer in perfect decay.

Don't you know
You are the only one?
Serpent-in-claw
Don't you know
You are the coolest kid?
Serpent-in-claw
And I won't let them get you down.

Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh
Ohh ooh ooh
Dum dum dun de dun

Everyone knows where,
Everyone goes where
Everyone knows the words
But you.

Laid back,
Drunk at the wheel of a foreign car,
Nobody wondering where you are,
Fixing your hair anyway.
And they will never touch you,
Serpent-in-claw.
Mmm

Don't you know
You are the only one?
Serpent-in-claw
Don't you know
You are the coolest kid?
Serpent-in-claw
And I will never let them get you down.

Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

And they will never touch you.
