Bad Seed

(KIT HOLMES)
Kit Holmes

Who's that on your doorstep in the dewy morning dawn?

Enticing and alluring and as much trouble as the day is long

Say's he's here to bring you roses but all you see are weeds

You're never gonna get a good apple

From a bad seed

He's the kind of spineless thing that slithers and slinks

Trust your gut with the likes of him, he won't give you time to think

He'll promise you the Promised Land under a snakey tree

You're never gonna get a good apple

From a bad seed

Mesmerizing and shiny on the outside

But you know there's always more than meets the eye

Just try to apply a little pressure

You'll see the rotted core seeping from inside

You know, you know what he's made of

So send him packin' down the road with the dogs at his heels

And pat yourself on the back for nippin' that bud

You know you're never gonna get a good apple

From a bad seed
