Sour Alley – Snake Charmer lyrics

Oooooo, Snake Charmer’s gonna play
Watching you down the hole
Slipping on down to snakes

Oooooo, Snake Charmer’s gonna play
You’re slipping on down the hole
Not knowing you playing with snakes
Inside the hole, that sucking hole

Down the hole, down the hole, down that rabbit hole
Where pain and sorrow grows
Down the hole, down the hole, down that wicked hole
Where rabbit would never go
We hear your soul sucked down the hole
That’s the sound of your life down that sucking hole

Oooooo, Seems nothing bothers you
He smiles, now you’re his fool
He’s proud your life’s his tool

Oooooo, he plays softly a tune
You’re lost and you’re alone
Like Sisyphus rolls his stone
You track that stone, down that sucking hole

Down the hole, down the hole, down that rabbit hole
Where pain and sorrow grows
Down the hole, down the hole, down that sucking hole
Where rabbit would never go
We see you slip on down the hole
Don’t you hear the sound of that sucking hole?
We hear your life sucked down the hole
That’s the sound of a deep dark sucking hole

    Here is to poor insight and judgment--two human qualities that we all seem to repulse over the course of a lifetime. Rob tossed in the line about Sisyphus and the eternal hell of repeating the same acts that results in emotional disaster. Who is the snake charmer? Could it be an internal character the becomes externally channeled through other people and situations? In other words, is the snake charmer of human heartache simply our own unique and individual propensity for self-destruction? In that case, do we (that evil internal snake charmer) laugh at ourselves when we experience disaster with that small snake charming voice pointing to the obvious looming doom that we somehow are blinded to?
