My love, my love, you're the sting of the scorpion.
Consider now the angels a little lower than you.
And they twist and they turn, and they hold their breath 'til it's blue,
And they can't turn away like I can when you're looking like you do.

Look at Black Betty what they're tying to you,
You did the very thing, baby, that I asked you not to do.
Now you got yourself caught in this silk spiderweb.
I hope the money fills the holes, 'cause, see, the roof is caving in.

My heart, my heart, you're the moon and her shining light.
Darkness and void of form, like you were keeping me alive.
And I'm dreaming of poisonings from the venom of my enemies,
Clever as the viper, dear, but gentle as a stampede of stones.

Look at Black Betty what they're tying to you,
Uou did the very thing, baby, that I asked you not to do.
Now you got yourself caught in this silk spiderweb.
I hope the money fills the holes, 'cause, see, the roof is caving in.

And they want you to doubt every choice that you've known,
And they want to find the holes in the armor exposed.
And they come on, whispering, "If you'd just do this for me,"
And turn and show their teeth, just before they sink it in.

And better than described, and deeper the descent,
I never thought we'd have to learn to doubt a friend.
And better than described, so much deeper the descent,
I never thought we'd have to learn to doubt a friend.

Look at Black Betty what they're tying to you,
You did the very thing, baby, that I asked you not to do.
Now you got yourself caught in this silk spiderweb.
I hope the money fills the holes, 'cause, see, the roof is caving in.

Look at Black Betty what they're tying to you,
You did the very thing, baby, that I asked you not to do.
Now you got yourself caught in this silk spiderweb.
I hope the money fills the holes in the place I used to stand.
