It was a close call,
Sitting in the back of the room with the boy... get on
But they didn't know,
Closing on my back, I feel safe at times
Certain emblems tell me it's time

Serpents in my mind, looking for your cries
Everything changes
I don't want life to this time

You enjoy sucking on dreams,
so I will fall asleep
with someone other than you,
I had a thought, you would take me
Seriously and listen up

Serpents in my mind,
I am searching for your cries
Everything changes, in time you'll stay, frozen in time
... ing girls, controlling minds
You hold the mirror, to everybody else

Serpents in my mind, trying to forgive
Your cries
Everyone changes, in time
I hope he changes, this time.
