Instead you laid still in the grass all coiled up and hissin'

All coiled up and hissing And though I know all about those men ..

Too low to display


Instead you laid still in the grass, all coiled up and hissing.

"You should've known by the tone of my voice, maybe
But you didn't listen
You played dead, but you never bled,
Instead you lay still in the grass, all coiled up and hissing"

"You should've known by the tone of my voice, maybe
But you didn't listen
You played dead, but you never bled,
Instead you lay still in the grass, all coiled up and hissing"

Instead you lay still in the grass all coiled up and hissing

I was listening to some "old" rock music in my car the other day and something from the lyrics stuck with me, "Instead you lay still in the grass all coiled up and hissing". Fake digital Gold Stars to anyone who knows what song it was. :D

Anyway, I was trying to figure out what Tarot card best fits this kind of emotional defensiveness described in the lyrics. Anyone care to make a suggestion?

Since forming in 1967, kings of classic rock REO Speedwagon have added a few clicks to their tour bus’ odometer bringing their timeless hits (that I certainly don’t need to list here) to local venues, thrilling countless moms just like yours along the way. Recently, vocalist Kevin Cronin and I spoke about everything from whales, to touring, to insecurity, and even a snake in the grass, probably all coiled up and hissing. There’s no shortage of chances to catch the band live this summer, either on their own or with tourmates Chicago. Go to a show. Bring your mom and belt it out with Cronin like your lives depend on it. You know you want to and, oh, I know you both can! You can thank me later.
