lyrics

Come back here you black-eyed spider
Won't you have a seat?
I've always admired your way with people
Would you like someone to eat?

Tell me about the radiation
that made you grow so big
Was it your microwave, your cellphone
or something more sinister?

I love the way you crawl, black-eyed spider
up your black and winding stair
into your parlour with such alluring style
in vogue and vile

I love the way you dress, black-eyed spider
You're on the cutting edge
Dressed to kill and killing to eat
We're all dead meat

Come back here you black-eyed spider
Won't you please explain?
Do your desires respond to reason?
Does your blood-lust have a name?

Tell us about your perfect monster
The haunter of our dreams
Where current fashion meets
antique atrocities
and something more sinister

I love your fatal bite, black-eyed spider
and the venom in your smile
but we're too young and pretty to die
so pass us by

Give up the ghost,
black-eyed spider
