Calming The Snake lyrics

Come on down,down to the river
Come on down I want to feel you shiver
Dark on the edges,golden on top
Floatin down the river
Yr so hot
Oh oh oh oh oh ooh
[repeat]

Come on down,down to the river
Come on down I want to feel you shiver
The sight of death is sure to deliver,
Come on down I want to hear you quiver
Oh oh ooh
Corpses' drapery
Rusting,sliding,sliding,
Sliding
Endless
