Lyrics
give me a reason
give me a cure
give me some poison
'cause it might be pure
if you've found the snake that bites
you're half-way there
now say goodnight

repeat the question
give me a clue
tell me a story
'cause it might be true

yeah, but once upon a time
the choice to live a life of crime

some of my finest moments in the ring
and just before the count of ten
anticipating
when that bell will ring
any second now
well it is the season to kiss the floor
with thanks to poison all here a**ured
if you've found the snake that bites
you're half-way there
now say goodnight
goodnight

I must remind myself
to think bad thoughts
every single day and throw caution to the wind
now watch it drift away
just like yesterday
and that's the reason
that there is no cure
and where's that poison hiding out
I need still more

'cause the snake that bites was right
you're half-way there
now say goodnight
goodnight
goodnight
goodnight
