about

Second single from Dutch indie rock band SPIRITBOX, 'Rattlesnakes, ' is the follow up single to 'Rivals' ; both tracks taken from the upcoming debut album 'Milk' (2019).

lyrics

They got me in a corner
Stuck with needles to my wall
I don't know how much longer 
This broken back of mine will hold

There's holes around my feet 
Cracks inside my head 
I hear slither sounds
Feel the scales against my neck

I push my mind to its limits
To get out of this place
This cellar I'm in with all mistakes I made
I don't know how much longer I can take
To be pervaded by these rattlesnakes

I consent to being preyed upon
Now all sulfur stars are gone 
They were swallowed by the desert 
With its serpents, sand and sun 

But there were lines not to be crossed 
You threw them at my feet like snakes
All we got is venom
And the way their rattles shake

I push my mind to its limits
To get out of this place
This cellar I'm in with all mistakes I made
I don't know how much longer I can take
To be pervaded by these rattlesnakes

I push my mind to its limits
For a way to escape
This cellar I'm in with all mistakes I made
I don't know how much longer I can take
To be pervaded by these rattlesnakes

Set them on fire
Burn them at the stake
They cram my mind with
Rattles for my brains
