lyrics

Sometime after all the afterwards
and somewhere else...

...I am taking back a step or three
If you'll come, too.

Bring your camera with for evidence
Because this won't last much longer than the
Time it takes for your eyes
to adjust
to the light;
to the night;
to the frightful things you conjure up

inside your head,
inside your head,
inside your...

Twisting round to take the serpent by the fangs,
and Bring her down
to slither with the
humans on the ground.

When the time is almost bigger than,
bigger than,
bigger than
you can understand,

Use the weapon you are
Holding in your hand.

Feel the nickel in your palm;
Raise thw palm with all your arm;
Pull the trigger nice and tight
Then hope that this is all

inside your head,
inside your head,
inside your...

Peel back your eyelids.
Do it slowly.
Do it with the surest fear that
Everything you did before
Was real enough,
you can't be sure
that every word you thought you said
might not have stayed inside your head.

Everything you did before
Was real enough,
But don't regret
That the words you could have said
Might not have stayed inside your...
