"A Serpent's Tongue" as written by and Josh Middleton....
A Serpent's Tongue

Through compulsion
Deceptive thoughts escape
Revealing a leech within

All blood replaced
Archaic Ancestry
Consuming the mind

Shape shifting
Hallowed guise
Soul engraved
Becoming a corporeal slave

Beneath the surface
Lies another being
Seeping through your skin

Beguiling
Transparent
Words flow like venomous spit

Shape shifting
Hallowed guise
Soul engraved
Becoming a corporeal slave

Riddled with disease

It breathes
It bleeds
It speaks
Lies

The mask of humanity breaks

Jaws open to expose this vile creature
Possessed in flesh uttering hypocrisy

Nothing does it taste
It's only purpose is to secrete verbal waste

Leech within

Holding to
One ounce of truth
All see through
To what lies beneath you

A constant struggle inside
Biologically lobotomized
Before you speak and even begin to think
Remember you're merely a man and not a god

    General CommentI think this song is about important people like religious leaders, politicians etc. and how they think they can just lie to"normal" people because of the fact that they are so important in the lives of millions.
