Paroles "Snakes" - Bastille

Ooh, I'm not ready
Ooh, I'm not ready
Ooh, I'm not ready
Ooh, I'm not ready

Snakes are biting at my heels
The worries that refuse to let us go
I’ve been kicking them away
Been hoping not to let them take control

Ooh, I’m not ready
Drink to escape their bites
Show me distraction
Even for just one night

'Cause it's easier to bury
My head in the sand sometimes
Yes, it's easier to bury
My head in the sand sometimes
And I know, I know, I know
It's not the right way to go
But I pray for the ground to swallow me whole

Ooh, I'm not ready
Ooh, I'm not ready

Now these days are feeling dark
We're struggling to figure out last year
When the woman on the news keeps saying things that no one wants to hear

Ooh, I’m not ready
Drink to escape our minds
Show me distraction
Even for just one night

'Cause it's easier to bury
My head in the sand sometimes
Yes, it's easier to bury
My head in the sand sometimes
And I know, I know, I know
It's not the right way to go
But I pray for the ground to swallow me whole
Yes, I pray for the ground to swallow me whole

Ooh, I'm not ready
Ooh, I'm not ready

"Come on, boys. Let's go tear this place apart!"

'Cause I know, 'cause I know life is simple when
I can just ignore it all
'Cause I know, 'cause I know, 'cause I know
Life is simple when
I can just ignore it all
'Cause I know, 'cause I know, 'cause I know

If I’m not ready
Snakes will consume me whole
If I'm not steady
Baby they'll take control

But it's easier to bury
My head in the sand sometimes
Yes, it's easier to bury
My head in the sand sometimes
I know, I know, I know
It's not the right way to go
But I pray for the ground to swallow me whole
Yes, I know, I know, I know
It's not the right way to go
But I pray for the ground to swallow me whole
