lyrics

she waits
a rattlesnake of coiled up destiny
a viper pit of possibility
she's poisonous,
but not
to the touch

she says
that i'm better off as far as I can be
from her volatile, collected calamity
but if there's really no one left,
then I guess
you can take me home

and I've heard
all this before
waiting
behind the door
for the tiger or the girl

it's always one step forward and two steps back
and then headlong into a heart attack
one step forward and two steps back
and then headlong into a heart attack
with you!

the things
she cares about are few and far between
but that doesn't mean exactly what you think
it's just that she can't yet see the
wolves among the trees

and in the
stack of books she one day hopes to read
there's a note I wrote to promise everything
book marking long lost territory

and I've heard
all this before
waiting
behind the door
for the tiger or the girl

it's always one step forward and two steps back
and then headlong into a heart attack
one step forward and two steps back
and then headlong into a heart attack
with you

and I've heard
all this before
waiting
behind the door
for the tiger or the girl

it's always one step forward and two steps back
and then headlong into a heart attack
one step forward and two steps back
and then headlong into a heart attack
with you
