lyrics

Lyrics:
Walk with me into the cold
Our shoes will scatter the dust like snow
I'm not the man you think you know
Behind the scenes
I'm selfish and shallow, uncaring and cold
And I will always be brooding and alone
It seems, no place for me, no home to call my own
Because you are the rabbit and I am the snake
I'll lie and steal and slither away, just to hide my face
until I drain the life from you
And it tears me apart at the seams, I will bend and I'll break all the rules that will keep you from me
And I'll move so soft that you won't even hear me leave
I'll move so soft that you won't even hear me leave
I wanted nothing more than your heartbeat to mine
Those hazel eyes reflecting the light
While the fireflies they circled at night
And I watched one as it burned so bright
Until it met its fate that night
A spider's web, all struggle and fangs and venom to eat away its insides
And I watched its light flicker on and off as it kept from choking
Some days I am the spider, and some days I'm just trying not to break apart without my blood
It tears me apart at the seams, I will bend and I'll break all the rules that will keep you from me
And I'll move so soft that you won't even hear me leave
And those hazel eyes will haunt my dreams tonight
And I'll move so soft that you won't even hear me leave
