Snake Hill
Conor Oberst Song Lyrics

Artist: Conor Oberst
Album: Outer South (2009)


I was born on snake hill
And that's where I'll probably die
Because I don't like to kill
But I've got poison in my bite.

Well, I feel safe to say
That I should probably stay upon snake hill.

My mother told me, 'son
You got strychnine in your blood
It comes from pedigree ancestory'.

She warned me not to leave
Said my concience was too deep
That when I bite
It would hurt mostly me.

For many many years
I stayed up on that hill
Occasionaly I'd go down to the edge
Just to see what I could see
So curiousity got the best of me.

Well, it's a big world and it's not fair to me
To stay up there when there's so much to see
I want to play with others that I need to meet
Poison will be poison till it's through.

Soon I hit the world
I discovered that a girl
Was what my mother tried to hide from me.

She could make you feel alive
She could make you want to die
And that's exactly what she did to me.

And it was only self defense
But I coiled up and I bit
I let my venom run into her veins.

And I sat and watched her die
To me
Then I realized.

I was born on snake hill
And that's where I'll probably die
Because I don't like to kill
But I've got poison in my bite.

Well, I feel safe to say
That I should probably stay upon snake hill.

And it's a big world and it's not fair to me
To have to stay when there's so much to see
I want to play with others that I need to meet.

And poison will be poison till it's through
Poison will be poison till it's through
Poison will be poison till it's through
Poison will be poison till it's through.
