Serpentine Messiah Lyrics

1. Serpentine Messiah (4:38)
Orphaned and sold as a pet you plan my demise
And silenced
And thrown in the cage
But still you survive

[chorus]basic needs which cannot be ignored
The promises of limbless reanimation
I’ve revealed myself to you
Come to collect your reward
My salvation is converted to your survival
I do not think you cruel or immoral
Although you have been unfairly maligned
Faith will be unnecessary in the end
All that is required is my life
Perhaps you don't understand
This world I’ve inherited
Is based upon an investment
In your wealth and longevity
For you were hand-created
And given the ability
To see that I was naked
To know I was your slave
For my sacrifice
You shall be satiated
In your prison paradise
Consuming my damage

[Solo: Mark Hawkins]
[Solo: Malcolm Pugh]
[Solo: Colin Butler]

My eyes are opened as you shed your skin
Stealthily slipping around my neck
And thrown to your lair
No I don't think I’ll survive
Predator and prey (I am the)
An ancient progression (flesh that you)
In my dying moments (truly will)
I am now reborn (always need)
Giving up my essence (so I lay)
To welcome desolation (down my life)
Cast into a well of digestion
Your willing prey
Please bless me
My serpentine messiah

[Solo: Colin Butler]
