Lyrics

climb over the rockies dusted in snow
look down on the desert melting through the road
the coyotes shriek the vultures appear
bartenders at the palisades stay open

scorpion honey pour one more for me
until this fever bends I'm trying to make sense
from madness - its going to take some time
now all I got is time and scorpion honey

these mountain town saloons have ghosts in their rooms
the hallway dark and wreaking moonlight and old perfume
a shattered chandalier breaks the night
illuminating blood as clear as ink still spilling

scorpion honey goes down easy
an honest medium trying to make sense
from madness - its going to take some time
now all I got is time and scorpion honey

some things are meant to be kept under the dirt
be careful when digging around in the earth

there is no escape
there is only distraction
where death goes death follows
like a tumbling weed spreading it's seed

scorpion honey got the better of me
pull that bottle down I'm trying to make sense
from madness - it's going to take some time
now all I got is time and scorpion honey
