Baby, have you seen, there is a snake in our paradise
A serpent that's wriggling between us
and freezing our feelings to ice

And with each drop of blood we bleed because of this
something so precious dies and it feels it really is...

Killing Me Killing You
Killing all we have
As our loves wither away

Burning Me Burning You
Burning us to ash
Drowning us in a sea of flames

Darling, do you feel, there is a storm coming our way
The burning light between us is already starting to fade
The fire in our hearts is smothered by the rain
and the crimson flame of passion turns into something gray

And with each drop of blood our shattered hearts ever bleed
something so precious dies and is lost eternally

Killing Me Killing You
Killing all we have
As our loves wither away

Burning Me Burning You
Burning us to ash
Drowning us in a sea of flames

Killing Me Killing You
Killing all we have
As our loves wither away

Burning Me Burning You
Burning us to ash
Drowning us in a sea of flames

Each teardrop from your eyes
makes something inside me die
Each of these days that draws us apart
takes a piece from my, takes a piece from my heart

Kill me kill me kill me again with your love
and chase the storm away
Bring me bring me bring me the end with your love
and haunt the demons away

Killing Me Killing You
Killing Me Killing You
Killing all we have
As our loves wither away

Burning Me Burning You
Burning us to ash
Drowning us in a sea of flames

Killing Me Killing You
Killing all we have
As our loves wither away

Burning Me Burning You
Burning us to ash
Drowning us in a sea of flames

Kill me kill me kill me again with your love
and chase the snake away
Bring me bring me bring me the end with your love
and haunt the serpent away

    General CommentBig impending sense of separation between partners, probably his music career or alcohol addiction.

    and no people, not groupies or other women. Come on, this guy's serious.

    General CommentIt has nothing to do with a "third party". Nothing necessarily at all. The serpent in paradise is supposed to be a symbol of mistrust or betrayal. It's supposed to mean that something is coming between them, killing their feelings, and their relationship is falling apart because of it. I know because I can totally relate to the lyrics, not by "hating school and parents and everything" o_O If you feel like that, go listen to Slipknot's first album and stop listening to emotional songs like this one.

    General CommentSENTENCED RULES.. HAS ANYONE HEARD THE SONG "EXCUSE ME WHILE I KILL MYSELF" ???
    IT IS THE BEST SONG EVER, IT TOTALLY HELPS ME RELATE TO ALL THE THINGS THAT PISS ME OFF ABOUT MY LIFE. I FUCKING HATE MY PARENTS AND MY SCHOOL. SENTENCED'S LYRICS MAKE ME FEEL LIKE I HAVE SOMETHING.

    General CommentI think that this song is talking about a guy's view of his relationship with his love. He is saying that an unwanted third party has slithered its way into his relationship(witch is why he compared that third party to a serpent) and it is killing the passion he and his lady have. He sees the storm coming, and the fire in their relationship freezes to ice, killing their love.
