I just don't understand it
Well there's something at our door
Now we're fighting together
As dogs of war

When the moon is shining
And you're wrapped around our sins
Then our souls starts a-howling
And the show begins

Over where the city starts
Something comes and slips into its heart
Snakes and lovers
Try to shed our sins

We're undercover
But it's slipped beneath our skins
Snakes and lovers
Holding on in the night
Are you sleeping tight?

In our Garden of Eden
With the poison in disguise
We had grown love together
In paradise

Now Utopia's falling
And the messages are clear
That the evil is crawling
And fear is near

Now temptation comes to try
So I bite the apple of my eye
Snakes and lovers
Try to shed our sins

We're undercover
But it's slipped beneath our skins
Snakes and lovers
Holding on in the night
Are you sleeping tight?

Now you're alone in your room
And all of the walls they are turning
And down on the streets where I walk
The light on my eyes it is burning

So come on and take me, my dear
And bear the fruits of what we know
Then our minds will be clear
And our hearts will not let go

Just one more step
And we will be over
Snakes and lovers
Try to shed our sins

We're undercover
But it's slipped beneath our skins
Snakes and lovers
Holding on in the night
Are you sleeping tight?

Holding on in the night
Are you sleeping tight?
