lyrics

There was no snake. There was no dragon
Just things that happened one after another
No clouds confess or leaves reveal
There was no snake that took her away from you

There was no snake. There’s no Peg Powler
Just a river that he was dragged under
Tell every father of every daughter
There was no snake
There was no huldra

We dressed their skeletons and made them dance
Gave grace and spite to a ball of gas
The cold earth can’t care if you wither
Or how many skinny children you bury inside it

There was no snake. There was no dragon
Just men who found the quicker way
Tell every mother of every son
There was no snake. There was no dragon

We dressed their skeletons and made them dance
Gave grace and spite to a ball of gas
The cold earth can’t care if you wither
Or how many skinny children you bury inside it

When things that happened, happened to us
When he was gone and we had nothing
When in our heads and hands that joined
When in the eyes that fellow eyes avoid
It’s plain as day, there’s no avoiding
You cannot hide the truth in words
There was a snake
There was a dragon
We saw its teeth. We did, we did

The dark is full, the clouds form signs
The accidents are all designed
He had a meaning. He’ll never fade
Look closely you can see the stars are spelling out his name
Oh you’re no fool
So tell me honestly
You saw the same? You saw the same?
