Lyrics

Serpentine Serpentine,
know your kind
should never have crawled out of the swamp.
Your history's
a mystery
but what we learn is stranger than fiction.

Your mission,
sole ambition,
your mass crass ass gonna eat up the Earth.
But your greed and hate
were blown away to make
room for love.

What’s that?
You’re back?
Is that your shiny new look?
It's just the same old
fake gold shit
propped up in some snakeskin boots.

The way you act
so trash -
don’t you know you’re not
the sum of your possessions?
You must think that love
is just a modern invention.

'Cause you don’t belong
in the world we live in.
Crawl back in the ground
with your dead friends,
your oily kin,
where you'll fit right in.

And you don’t belong
in the land of the livin’.
No, you’ve had your chance to rule.
Now you’re fossil fuel
in the solar wind.

Serpentine Serpentine,
your trickle down lies
have long since lost their shine.
Your unpaid debts,
empty threats,
weigh heavy on my mind,
so heavy on my mind.

You’re the dumb brute past
that we keep reliving.
Don’t you know we’re out of time?
And when the tar sands black
take you back,
the whole world will do just fine.

'Cause you don’t belong
in the world we live in.
Crawl back in the ground
with your dead friends,
your oily kin,
where you fit right in.

And you don’t belong
in the land of the livin’.
Oh, you’ve had your chance to rule.
Now you’re fossil fuel
in a solar wind.
