"Snakes & Snakes" as written by and Paul Anthony Noonan Dominic Michael Phillips....
I need some crayon light
I need some coloring in
I need somebody who's going to give in

I need my own moon landing
I need a mission to Mars
I need to carry out repairs by the light of your star

You say you're missing my voice now
Yea, I'm missing it too
I'm missing my voice when it's talking to you

I'm hearing your voice now
And here I go again
Coming over like mist be coming rain

All this serves to tell me
Is maybe there's no ladders in this game at all
All this serves to tell me is maybe only snakes like the one in the garden that has to crawl

All this serves to tell me
Is maybe there's no ladders in this game at all
All this serves to tell me is maybe only snakes like the one in the garden fucked it all

I need to smile like an Angel
I need to smile like a Fool
I need to smile like I'm pissing
In your swimming pool

    General CommentI've never actually heard this song, but yet I love the lyrics/ phrases. It's more like a poem, with music. Which makes it deeper. I love the last two lines. It shows how comfortable he is with this person. I think it's great. It's real. It's humorus. It's also sad. I can definately relate to the feeling of emptyness, averageness.

    General CommentAfter hearing this from Tour De Flock, this song has become one of my very favorite. Once again the Bellies display true wittiness through their lyrics - "I need to carry out repairs by the light of your star." Hell, that line alone can take anyone's breath away
