Beck Tarantula Lyrics

I’m living but I’m feeling numb

Can see it in my stare

I wear a mask so falsely now

And I don’t know who I am

Despite the worlds inside of me

Cursing me away

I’ve noticed in others’ eyes

That time is closing in

And when the thunder breaks

It breaks for you and me

Tarantula, tarantula

Tarantula, tarantula

The future’s looking rather grim

A strange black tide

Decisions lie with foolish men

Along with my life

They’re choking and holding me

Expecting me to fall

But only if I’m threatened

We’ll see the tables turn

And when the thunder breaks

It breaks for you and me

Tarantula, tarantula

Tarantula, tarantula

Our world is under a sentence of death

I was born underground

But when the pressure gets too much for me

Bye, bye

Tarantula, tarantula

Tarantula, tarantula

Tarantula, tarantula

Tarantula, tarantula
