Album: The Tramp (2012)
  • It was a close call
    Sitting in the back of the room
    With a bowl you had owned
    But they didn't know
    Close in on my black eye
    I feel safe at times
    Certain emblems
    Tell me it's time

    Serpents in my mind
    Looking for your crimes
    Everything changes
    I don't want mine to this time

    You enjoy sucking on dreams
    So I will fall asleep with someone other than you
    I had a thought you would take me seriously
    And listen on

    Serpents in my mind
    I am searching for your crimes
    Everything changes
    In time

    You'll stay frozen in time
    Collaging girls
    Controlling minds
    You hold the mirror well
    To everybody else

    Serpents in my mind
    Trying to forgive your crimes
    Everyone changes in time
    I hope he changes this time Writer/s: Sharon Katharine Van Etten, Aaron Brooking Dessner
