Lyrics

Pay your dime son
See the show
the snakebite woman never dies
-

Starving hustlers in lamplit halls
seduce, bemuse, and terrify
apish children and so called normal
dusted suits and powdered monsters
who've come to point, and laugh,
and see the other side

A snakebit child smiles and lives on
with power realized, she grew to hypnotize
with opiate beauty and devil's charm
and caught between fear and wanting
the possessed possessed desire
to tame the fire behind her eyes

-
and you'll see her after midnight
dressed in scarves and jewels
where all the pain and venom couldn't
she fell to love and bullets
-

Now Evatima's poison blood
reflects her perfect face in red
she tempted hearts and fate one last time
now three lie dead
and a warm revolver
warns if cold blood calls
you would better play with snakes
than broken hearts

-
and you'll see her after midnight
dressed in scarves and jewels
where all the pain and venom couldn't
she fell to love and bullets
