Save Your Serpent (Ego Likeness)

Out of the egg of the mother Stagnated spaces and your cold-blooded brother Into the mud until the summertime comes Into the mud and back to your blood Your talismans can't help you now so cast them to the stony ground We can't evolve much farther if we let them weigh us down We worship the rivers and the seas We worship the stone The only gospel that we know is encoded in our bones We are of reptiles We are of stardust We are of mercury and these things are our kin We are of dignity We are of mercy We are of cruelty and this is not our sin Build no temple Just remember what you came from, who you are And you're owed nothing Just feel lucky to leave a trace of who you are Build no temple Just remember what you came from, who you are And you're owed nothing Just feel lucky to leave a trace of who you are Build no temple Just remember what you came from, who you are And you're owed nothing Just feel something and leave a trace of who you are
