about

River Of Snakes Melbourne, Australia

Two cranked up Fender Bassman amps, two Big-muff pedals on full and aggressive powerhouse drums make up River of Snakes sonic core. This fuzz-demented three piece have been tearing apart stages and splintering ears for over two years now in their hometown of Melbourne and abroad. This is a band that thrives on raw spirit and DIY attitude. ... more

Track Name: Beauty
Beauty
I was on the run from love’s cruel hand
I lost my friend I lost my band
when the morning broke, all that was left, was you standing in your poker dot dress.
No, I’ll never forget that day

Cos there’s a world in you
That I fall in to
There’s a world in you
That I fall in to

And now it seems unreal, it seems so far
Those nights you came in your rent a car
A world in splinters we could rebuild
We gathered up the courage they all had spilled
It made all the difference that you were there
Cos there’s a world in you
That I fall in to
There’s a world in you
That I fall in to

A world that’s beautiful and brave
Cos you make me feel so dangerous
I dream about it in my sleep… my sleep.
I orbit the anomaly

Cos there’s a world in you
That I fall in to
There’s a world in you
That I fall in to
Track Name: Slater
I say you do but you don’t have a voice anymore
I’m in control of it all
Watch me crawl into a ball

My shell is hard, and I make, I make my money
My shell is hard, and I make, I make my money
My shell is hard, and I make, I make my money
My shell is hard when I make my money

When it’s dark
And I lay my head to sleep
I count dollars
Instead of counting sheep

It’s a new dawn of the living dead for you
Cos you don’t own your own mind its true

My shell is hard, and I make, I make my money
My shell is hard, and I make, I make my money
My shell is hard, and I make, I make my money
My shell is hard lets make some money

When it’s dark
And I lay my head to sleep
I count dollars
Instead of counting sheep
Track Name: I wanna be your baby
Well its true, what they said uh huh
I’m a fool for you, uh huh
You got me hypnotized
With those snake green eyes
You got me telling lies …Oh yeah …Oh yeah

Well its true what they said uh huh
You got trouble in mind
And I think that’s fine
I want you all the time …Oh Yeah …Oh yeah

I wanna be your baby
I wanna be your baby
I wanna be your baby right now
Oh right now

Well you got me seeing stars, and I’m think of ya constantly,
the way you walk, the way you talk,
the way you show up my mistakes
and I feel weak at the knees
cos I know that I could be
throwing it all away for a chance to make it
a perfect failure, I can’t fake it
yeah
I wanna be your baby
Track Name: Middening
I can’t seem to think at all
Just lay the shit out for you all
I never cared, I just can’t share
Its me me me me me till the end

I know the things you do
It’s not what you say
I’ve heard the things you say
It’s not what you do

This world owes me something too
I’m always being used by you
When you can’t seem to fit in any place
mute expressions from behind a face

I know the things you do
It’s not what you say
I’ve heard the things you say
It’s not what you do

All that’s left now is to complain
I’m an empty shell behind a name
You say what you want
That was your mistake
To take my voice away
Track Name: Divine
Most people say they think that love is blind
I look at you and I think that’s just unkind
If looks could kill we’d be star- crossed lovers
Odd parallels in the face of others
Make your next move with your warm hands and cold heart

You’re Divine
You’re Divine

And I just can’t seem to get to sleep tonight
Something’s a miss, something’s not quite right
My head is heavy and my mouth is dry
It flows out of me and out of life
I’m pushed and pulled by this chaotic soul

You’re Divine
You’re Divine


And I find myself in the pale moon of your eyes

There’s no-one else and it comes as a surprise
You draw me in to your mystery
At times likes this when it’s hard to see
Night after night we burn and I slowly glean

You’re Divine
You’re Divine
Track Name: I lied
I lied, I’m sorry baby
I should never’ve said those things
The truth is out there darling
I just gotta work it in
I lied I’m sorry baby now I got face the truth
Deception was the contraband
And you needed the proof
That love is a fire, burning in my soul
I lied I’m sorry darlin’ your heart I can’t console


and Ohhhhh Oh this much is true
and Ohhhhh Oh this much is true


Yeah I was dazzled I was smitten
So we cried a sea of tears
I choked on what I’d bitten
While you bathed in your fears
The road that we were walking
Has changed beneath our feet
I’m weary worn and beaten
We’re haunted by deceit
Cos love is fire burning in our souls
I lied and now I’m sorry
Your heart I can’t console


Yeah I lied, I know, I'm sorry
In this soil that love can't grow
I'm double guessing feelings
on the mirror of my soul
You hurt the ones you love
then love the hurt instead
I lied I know I hurt you
It keeps going round my head
Cos love is a fire
Burning in my soul
I lied I know I hurt you
Deceit is a black hole

and Ohhhhh Oh this much is true
and Ohhhhh Oh this much is true
Track Name: The words I love you (ain't enough)
I was on the outside looking in, awash with bleach and the stain of sin.
I’m on the inside looking out, I’m over my head and there ain’t a doubt.
Cos trouble is as trouble does, and as below so above.
Spill those words, I wanna hear you say it.
With all my heart I need to hear you say it.

The words I love you ain’t enough.
The words I love you
ain’t
enough
They ain’t enough


And everything’s not what it seems, splintered memories fall into dreams.
Say it now or you’ll regret it, don’t think it over and don’t forget it.
Cos everytime that you call around, my heart leaps out and falls to the ground.
Spill those words I wanna hear you say it.
With all my heart I need to hear you say it.

The words I love you ain’t enough.

One more time you feed me that old line, with ya bullshit wrapped up clues.
A slick web that’s spinning around the fresh meat’s ready to bruise.
I ain’t dumb and I ain’t blind, aint no helping what can’t be helped.
Yeah the whole world’ s against you, arghh fuck yourself.
Track Name: Separation anxiety
Close your eyes, but don't let go.
I'll be right here, yeah I won't go.
You are the light that guides my fate.
I live and breath you, till it's too late.

The stars are out
We'll shake them down
I fall apart
Each time we part

Ohhhh and I do.

You know girl, its strange, I never though this would happen.
Yet here we are, you should be careful what you wish for.
You're so cool
You're so cool

The stars are out
We'll shake them down
I fall apart
Each time we part
