about

A tribute to Jake "The Snake" Roberts.

lyrics

Family man
You either is or you ain’t
Bump some DDT’s and then it’s crack & cocaine
The venom doesn’t suit somebody your age but
It’s unshedable skin

Got a daughter
don’t remember her age
sometimes you try to sleep
And start to mumble her name
Invite to a show to get to know
Who to hate
You got a snake in the bag, man
But you’re much more treacherous than that

When you get so high
you get so high
But you’ve made one hell of name
In the squared circle in spite
Of yourself

I heard you’re scared of them
As they are of you
ain’t gone stick around
To find if it’s true
They pass out on the mat
I know what you gunna do
You got a snake in the bag, man
But you’re something more poisonous than that

When you get so high
you get so high
slither on through the grass
Down to the hole where you hide

When you get so high
You fucking get so high
But you’ve lived one hell of a life
All while preoccupied
In the squared circle in spite
Of yourself
