Lyrics: Get on the snake With a swarm of motor flies Get on the snake Under the Cola colored sky Don't worry, everything's clean Road worthy, hungry and mean Get on the snake Where the metal river bleeds Get on the snake Where you never will believe Hey baby, what's your disease My heart's bleeding, I'm dying to leave Get on the snake Where the water turns to steam Get on the snake With a suicide machine Don't worry, everything's clean Road worthy, hungry and mean Hungry and mean... Hungry and mean... The song is about a road. Not a penis. I'm working on 'Full On Kev's Mom' because I couldn't find the tab anywhere and I figured I owed it to society to tab it out. Also coming soon: 'I Awake' 'Hands All Over' I want the tab to 'No Wrong, No Right'
