In the cruel garrison of affection
If worth of lore is true
You know the face of a temptress

Pit Viper
A witch or enchantress
Pit Viper
With the malign venom of conceit

She tries civil men
Conceal fear misgivings
When night entreats them
A greater chill sustains
Stains her darkness

Shall not inhibit death blow
Know this skin does not restrict her
Tear and shed the coil
Fall of garland leaves below the soil

Songwriters
Natalie Merchant;Steven Gustafson
