Lyrics

  • Union Of The Snake

    [Verse 1]
    Telegram force and ready
    I knew this was a big mistake
    There's a fine line drawing
    My senses together
    And I think it's about to break

    [Pre-Chorus]
    If I listen close I can hear them singers
    Voices in your body coming through on the radio

    [Chorus]
    The Union of the Snake is on the climb
    Moving up it's gonna race it's gonna break
    Through the borderline

    [Verse 2]
    Nightshades on a warning
    Give me strength at least give me a light
    Give me anything even sympathy
    There's a chance you could be right

    [Pre-Chorus]
    If I listen close I can hear them singers
    Voices in your body coming through on the radio

    [Chorus]
    The Union of the Snake is on the climb
    Moving up it's gonna race it's gonna break
    Through the borderline

    [Chorus]
    The Union of the Snake is on the climb
    Moving up it's gonna race it's gonna break
    Through the borderline

    [Pre-Chorus]
    If I listen close I can hear them singers
    Voices in your body coming through on the radio

    [Chorus]
    The Union of the Snake is on the climb
    Moving up it's gonna race it's gonna break
    Through the borderline

    The Union of the Snake is on the climb
    Moving up it's gonna race it's gonna break
    Gonna move up to the borderline

    The Union of the Snake is on the climb
    Moving up it's gonna race it's gonna break
    Through the borderline

  • [Verse 1]
    Wise on a birthday party
    In a world full of surprising fireworks
    And sudden silence
    Sh......
    Lies on a stranger's bed
    The new day breaks like a speeding train or an old friend
    Never expected, but never knocking
    Holding your own in a battered car
    All night parties, cocktail bars and smile
    When the butterfly escapes the killing jar

    [Chorus 1]
    Sure eyes awake before the dancing is over
    Wise or naked in secret Oktober

    [Verse 2]
    Freefall on a windy morning shore
    Nothing but a fading track of footsteps
    Could prove that you'd ever been there
    Spoken on a cotton cloud
    Like the sound of gunshot taken by the wind
    And lost in distant thunder
    Racing on a shining plain
    And tomorrow you'll be content to watch
    As the lightning plays along the wires and you'll wonder
