Lyrics (from my ear haha)

My love, my love, you’re the sting of the scorpion
Consider now the angels a little lower than you
And they twist and they turn and they hold their breath til its blue
and they cant turn away like i can when you're looking like you do

Looking Black Betty what they're tying to you,
you did the very thing baby that i ask you not to do,
now you got yourself caught in this silk spiderweb,
i hope the money fills the holes see now the roof is caving in

my heart, my heart, you're the moon and her shining light,
darkness and void of form like you were keeping me alive.
And i'm dreaming of posoinings from the venom of my enemies,
clever as the viper but gentle as a stampede of [????]

Looking Black Betty what they're tying to you,
you did the very thing baby that i ask you not to do,
now you got yourself caught in this silk spiderweb,
i hope the money fills the holes see now the roof is caving in

Good job with the lyrics!

Somehow I hear
"Looking Black Betty what did time to you ..."
Anyone else? Since English isn't my first language I'm anyhow probably wrong Laughing

The stampede part definitely starts with an 's'.
I hear 'snails', but I doubt that's right lol.

It's either "stampede of snow" or "stones".

correct me if i'm wrong but the bridge (which is one of my favorite parts in any of the preview so far) goes something like:

And they want you to doubt every trust that you've known.
And they wanna find the holes in the armor, exposed.
And they come on whispering: "If you just do this for me..."
And turn and show their teeth just before they're sinking in.
