Tragic Black
StarIconGreen
This song is performed by Tragic Black and appears on the album The Cold Caress (2007).
This song is a cover of "Reptile" by The Church.
Too dangerous to keep.
Too feeble to let go.
And you want to bite the hand.
Should have stopped this long ago.

Chorus:
Go now, you've been set free.
Another month or so you'll be gorging on me [becomes "poisoning me" later]
With your lovely smile.
I see you slither away with your skin and your tail,
Your flickering tongue and rattling scales
Like a real reptile.

Had you coiled around my arm.
How could you ever know
How I loved your diamond eyes?
But that was long ago.

Chorus

And I should have believed Eve.
She said we had to blow.
She was the apple of my eye.
It wasn't long ago.

Chorus
Go!
Chorus
