Raising The Serpent
(Lloyd)

She's been living in the mirror, i'd like to follow her down

Like a suitcase of emeralds, that she can wear in her crown

And she says that she needs it, so i've been giving her some

And now she says that she knows me, but can't remember where from

She's been raising the serpent, and has a bird that can fly

And now she's holding my monkey but still she don't tell me why



She's been digging for the answers, in a beat-up garage

She's been building her castles, out of old lincoln logs

And she wants me to live there, we'll have a torried affair

Just like the fox in its foxhole, just like the rabbit in its lair

She's been raising the serpent, and has a bird that can fly

And now she's holding my monkey but still she don't tell me why



She's so soft, that i know she will cry

When the daylight comes and steals away her night



Well i just saw her yesterday, and she is still going down

Just like the cheshire cat baby, well all that's left is her frown

But i'm still standing beside her, i'm a dangerous man

And we're looking for laughter, we're doing the best that we can

She's raising the serpent, etc....
