Lyrics

Been seeing a snake with an Apple
A man in black holding a noose
A deck of cards with fifty two jokers
And I can’t seem to cut them loose.

You know you’ve been living
With your foot in my grave
You know you know
You’ve got one foot in my grave
There’s no more forgiving
Your deluge of cruelties
You cut my throat with your smile
But you no longer fool me

You give me the sweet kiss of Judas
My tears are salting your food
Your loving is laced with a poison
And now I live and breathe these blues

You know you’ve been living
With your foot in my grave
You know you know
You’ve got one foot in my grave
There’s no more forgiving
Your deluge of cruelties
You cut my throat with your smile
But you no longer fool me

You know you’ve been living
With your foot in my grave
You know you know
You’ve got one foot in my grave
There’s no more forgiving
Your deluge of cruelties
You cut my throat with your smile
But you no longer fool me

Been telling a tale with no ending
Been walking a trail with no boots
Been using my blood to pay the reaper
And in the end it’s still lose-lose

You know you’ve been living
With your foot in my grave
You know you know
You’ve got one foot in my grave
There’s no more forgiving
Your deluge of cruelties
You cut my throat with your smile
But you no longer fool me
