about

This track was written in 1994 shortly after Fluorescent Echo broke up. Heather wrote the song to use on a solo release and had recorded a demo with the band's bassist Greg. When the band got back together again in 2009 Heather played the demo for John and he said "Hey we should do this". So we re-vamped, re-arranged and recorded this song for the album.

Watch carefully, my child
The serpent about to devour your heart
Hold on tightly to your soul
Once she's gets a taste, yeah she won't let go
She'll suck the very essence from your life
and make you believe it's what you desire

You'll find yourself carressing scaled skin
Pleading to this demon for "the kiss" to begin
You'll learn to covet your own decay
Captive to her spell, yeah she bleeds you away

Ah
Serpent Smile
Ah
Serpent Bite

Symbols of faith carved out of bloodstone
She offers these to you, yeah you offer your soul
Her charm slithers on silver toungue
Your reward for the damage she's done

Ah
Serpent Smile
Ah
Serpent Bite
