From the recording Dust


Bitten By A Snake

I was running
along the road
the future coming’
with its heavy load
tripped on a stone
face first to the road

And I was bitten by a snake
but I didn’t die
venom stung and made me cry (bleed)
but I am alive

I was younger when we started out
world showed sunny and it showed it loud
we acted funny didn’t need to shout
didn’t need to be so very very proud Chorus

and it struck in anger and it struck in fear
and it made me bleed when I came too near
but it could not kill me so it just disappeared
it disappeared........

Am I immune or very lucky
just a fool or blessed by god
what did I do to gain this much
is it a blessing or just not giving up
