02. Serpent Sly

War Stories
by The No Longer

       
Lyrics:

Serpent sly crawling on your floor. Thought you’d know him by his big red horns. But he don’t look like you thought he would. So he caught you from behind like a good serpent should…Just make up your mind and go. I’m not gonna sit and whine no more ‘cause the world is dying off and crumbling down faster and faster. And the mothers are crying at the foot of their master but its no use when there’s no remorse. You just sit there with your gaze like a sluggard. Dare I ask you, where have you gone? Shuffle through your darkened rooms. Swinging your axe while the perpetrator looms. You’re so prepared for impending doom. Won’t you be surprised when he lowers the boom… Just make up your mind and go. I’m not gonna sit and whine no more ‘cause the world is dying off and crumbling down faster and faster. And the mothers are crying at the foot of their master but its no use when there’s no remorse. You just sit there with your gaze like a sluggard. Dare I ask you, where have you gone? …Hey, in your clever disguise. Did you think that I would buy your lies? Hey, Hey you seduced me into thinking you were telling the truth and now I’ve come unglued!… Just make up your mind and go. I’m not gonna sit and whine no more ‘cause the world is dying off and crumbling down faster and faster. And the mothers are crying at the foot of their master but its no use when there’s no remorse. You just sit there with your gaze like a sluggard. Dare I ask you, where have you gone? (Just sit there)



Behind the Song:
“This song is about attending to the wrong issues as well as losing focus and perspective all together. The character in the song believes that he or she understands what “evil” looks like, but is fooled and easily overtaken. A very real and current problem.” - Nick
