"Here Come The Snakes" as written by and Eric Emil Bachmann....
Dim the lanterns, kill the lights, let's leave tonight to hide away
To take cold comfort in the dark and leave our hearts behind to wait
We'll tear away these dreadful skins that we must shed to start again
The evil things that you can do are easy if you think them through
Are easy if you can pretend

So shut your windows lock your doors
Here come the snakes you best be sure
To keep your conscience bolted tight
'Cause they'll be lying waiting

Coiled up in the corner a devil never dies
Vending venom sickly sweet to help you through the night
You say you're an angel but I say you're a liar
'Cause you were burning long before you crept into this fire

So keep your shadow out of sight the time is right to hide away
To keep your conscience frozen numb the time has come don't be afraid
We'll tear away these dreadful skins that we must shed to start again
The sickest thing they did to you the did because you let them through
The did because you let them in

So shut your windows lock your doors
Here come the snakes you best be sure
To keep your conscience bolted tight
'Cause they'll be lying waiting

Coiled up in the corner a devil never dies
Vending venom sickly sweet to help you through the night
You say you're an angel but I say you're a liar
'Cause you were burning long before you crept into this fire
I know you've been burning we both know there's no light
So dim the lanterns so we don't see the darkness of this night
