Slow Gherkin – Baby Snake lyrics

You're just a little kid
You shouldn't have to pay for what your elders did
We give all our love
Sometimes love alone isn't good enough
But thems the brakes
You have so many demons trying to take you down
Inside and out

How do you live like you do
With the televisions screaming from every room
And your cell phones and toys
I guess anyone would lose it with all that noise
You say you don't care
But you can't repress your spirit, I know it's there

What we all need is some stability
Cause this coming and going is killing me

I'm never around
See you every couple months when the band's in town
And we're gone the next day
I don't even have the time to see if you're okay
I could never be
A figure of dependence or authority
Please forgive me

What we all need is some stability
Cause this coming and going is killing me

You're a baby snake
With a lethal little bite that you can't regulate
And it takes all I've got
Not to yield to the venom and write you off
What to do
You could squander your potential or see it through
It's up to you.
