There is no black and white to beauty
The green sneaks in as often as you look
The blue is in the ocean
The gold is in my eyes locked in a gaze
did you notice you were on my hook?

I wonder not, for here we are.
Little vipers sing the Snake Star Song
in hisses and kisses.
Double check what you're messing with
my prince.

Keep away or I will burn your evil army down
This night is mine, and you are not allowed
Open my door, do not complain
at the coils of your rude awakening!

Wonder not! Here we are.
Little vipers sing the Snake Star Song
in hisses and kisses.
Don't think you know everything
my king.

Come into my temple and you shall not leave unchanged
Don't underestimate a goddess
when her heart is in your fangs
Don't underestimate the serpent
when your heart is in her fangs!
No, no!

I have warned my beloveds of my death to come
I have seen your face, and I know you
It isn't your tale and your power t'will spread
but the story of how I destroy you!
There is no black and white to beauty!
There is no black and white,
there is green and blue and gold and starlight!
Here we are
little vipers sing the snake star song
in hisses and kisses
don't think you know everything, my king!
