Cage the Elephant - Spiderhead

I am the one you left for dead,
(Say you wanted to)
You are the bullet in my head,
And as you stand over my grave,
(Tell me it's okay)
You'll pause the lips upon my face.

Either I'm in heaven, or I'm in hell,
Am I losing my mind, yeah,
(Cause I can't tell)
I've been waiting for answers for way too long,
Seems I'm always waiting around.

Spiders in my head, spiders in my mind,
You may take my eyes, but baby I'm not blind,
It all works out all right,
You know I'm gonna be all right,
You may take my eyes, but baby I'm not blind.

I think your mother wants me dead,
(Say you wanted to)
I am a schizophrenic man,
I wouldn't change you if I could,
(Say you wanted to)
Treat me good I'll play it cool.

Chorus x2

"'It started from a simple riff that I had – you can hear it during the verse. This was one of the ‘struggle songs’ for us. We probably wrote four different choruses for this one; we just didn’t want to settle. We didn’t want to assume that the first thing was always the right thing. I never want to say that we took the easy way out on this record. If you’ve ever had that feeling where you had to convince yourself that something is the right thing, then you know it’s not the right thing. It’s hard to come to that realization, too. As an artist, you want to love everything that you do. But there’s a fine line between loving something and convincing yourself to love it.'" Brad Schultz via MusicRadar (September 2013)
