lyrics

Behind our house a trail we walked
Down below the circling hawks
There were frogs that leapt
And lizards in the sun
Beads of water on a web
That had just been spun

Our neighbour held a bag in hand
A reptile found beneath the sand
Then we saw it stand up straight
A baby snake
All I can say is we were
Frozen there in place

A little cobra
Little cobra
We'd walked that way so many times
Where dangers hid from passersby
Little cobra
Little cobra
Little cobra in plain sight

The path we took so many times
Beside the swamp was redefined
There were hazards in the things
We once dismissed and they'd become
The signs that dangled on
A ravelling ball of twine

And so we walk the same old walk
We watch the shadows as we talk
There are other ways to go
We like to be aware beside the grass
With every step we take on this great path

A little cobra
Little cobra
We'd walked that way so many times
Where dangers hid from passersby
Little cobra
Little cobra
Little cobra in plain sight

And to know
Or not to know
And to know
Or not to know
From the garden we go
Just to get
Back back back back back
Just to get
Back back back to

Little cobra
Little cobra
In the corners of our minds
We like the dangers that we find
Little cobra
Little cobra
Little cobra in plain sight

What if they're just constructs?
If it comes
From within?
Our thoughts may seem like rocks
But a river runs everything thin
