Conor Oberst - Snake Hill

rate me

I was born on Snake Hill

And that's where I'll probably die

Because I don't like to kill

But I've got poison in my bite

Well, I feel safe to say

That I should probably stay upon Snake Hill

My mother told me, "Son

You got strychnine in your blood

It comes from pedigree ancestory"

She warned me not to leave

Said my concience was too deep

That when I bite

It would hurt mostly me

For many many years

I stayed up on that hill

Occasionaly I'd go down to the edge

Just to see what I could see

So curiousity got the best of me

Well, it's a big world and it's not fair to me

To stay up there when there's so much to see

I want to play with others that I need to meet

Poison will be poison till it's through

Soon I hit the world

I discovered that a girl

Was what my mother tried to hide from me

She could make you feel alive

She could make you want to die

And that's exactly what she did to me

And it was only self defense

But I coiled up and I bit

I let my venom run into her veins

And I sat and watched her die

To me

Then I realized

I was born on Snake Hill

And that's where I'll probably die

Because I don't like to kill

But I've got poison in my bite

Well, I feel safe to say

That I should probably stay upon Snake Hill

And it's a big world and it's not fair to me

To have to stay when there's so much to see

I want to play with others that I need to meet

And poison will be poison till it's through

Poison will be poison till it's through

Poison will be poison till it's through

Poison will be poison till it's through
