I spent all my time chasing a serpent through
A cave in my mind, oh and it's poisonous bite
Put me under this spell,
I'm so sick feeling like I am a bottom of well
I wish I didn't have to drink
To put myself to sleep
I mean I guess I could pull it back together
Fall asleep alone and maybe feel better
But thats a whole new state of mind
I guess I'd have to say it was a new life

And I been worried about things like death
I know no man my age should be to considered with that
And I been smoking to many cigarettes
So I think that can burn away my regret
Chased a serpent through a well (in hell)
I asked him why'd you bite?
He said man I didn't think you were minding
The spell I've got you under it won't let you go
Until you find a way back, To find yourself not alone

Then that serpent was carried away, by an eagle
I guess I got to see it all from all angles
I really wish I had the time
To define what I meant in every line
But having trouble trying to sleep,
I have to take another drink
To lay my head back down
Maybe I'll drown myself down
I came accross that serpent down in a well
When he struck me it put my mind in an endless swell
I asked him why he bit me?
He said sir you looked deserving of it.

Now thats serpents gone, and I'm alone (without knowing whom)
I can't even sing anything right
I'll be alone til I figure it out
What that serpent's bite taught me and what it was about
But for now he's some birds feast sitting on its withered tongue
It's dying there, Wherever it went and perched
The venom struck him too, and he wasn't strong enough
To know that you got to hold on when it comes to push and shove
That eagle he died, I feasted on him so I could sleep tonight.
