Than the Serpents In My Hands Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
"Dorme, dorme meu menino
dorme no mar dos sargaços
que mais vale o mar a pino
que as serpentes nos meus braços"
-Mário Cesáriny
Verse 2
And when all life as you know it
-fails
all ghostlike lips taste just the
-same
What better comfort can you find
Than the serpents in my arms
Verse 3
Sleep, sleep now my child
In the sea of crystal Trouble
For better is the violent sigh
Than all that you leave behind
Verse 4
In your eyes a dark so subtle
Tells you walk, but never fly
To leave us all behind
Verse 5
And when all life as you know it
-fails
all ghostlike lips taste just the
-same
What better comfort can you find
Than the serpents in my arms
Verse 6
Down, down terrible child
To look at it is a sin
For better is to hold that smile
Than all that you leave behind
Verse 7
In your eyes a mark so subtle
Tells you walk, but never fly
To leave us all behind
Verse 8
And when all life as you know it
-fails
all ghostlike lips taste just the
-same
What better comfort can you find
Than the serpents in my arms
