Black Betty & The Moon (The Horrible Crowes)

My love, my love, you're the sting of the scorpion Consider, now, the angels, a little lower than you And they twist and they turn, and they hold their breath 'til it's blue And they can't turn away like I can, when you're lookin' like you do Looky Black Betty, what they're tying to you You did the very thing, baby, that I asked you not to do And now you got yourself caught in the silk spiderweb I hope the money fills the holes, can see the roof is caving in My heart, my heart, you're the moon and her shining light Darkness and void of form, like you were keeping me alive And I've been dreaming of poisonings from the venom of my enemies Clever as the viper, dear, but gentle as a stampede of stones Looky Black Betty, what they're tying to you You did the very thing, baby, that I asked you not to do Now you got yourself caught in the silk spiderweb I hope the money fills the holes, can see the roof is caving in And they want you to doubt every trust that you've known And they wanna find the holes in the armor exposed And they come on whispering, If you just do this for me... And turn and show their teeth just before they're sinking in And better than described and deeper the decent I never thought we'd have to learn to doubt our friends And better than described, so much deeper the decent I never thought we'd have to learn to doubt our friends Looky Black Betty, what they're tying to you You did the very thing, baby, that I asked you not to do Now you got yourself caught in the silk spiderweb I hope the money fills the holes, can see the roof is caving in Looky Black Betty, what they're tying to you You did the very thing, baby, that I asked you not to do Now you got yourself caught in the silk spiderweb I hope the money fills the holes in the place I used to stand
