From the recording Subconscious Terminus
Have you ever felt cornered? Felt that no one can be trusted? That you are in a snake pit? 'Into The Snake Pit' is a song for that very situation. To the ear the song and in particular the bassline has a lot of up's and down's like a conflicting mind and the slithering effect of the saxophone is like a spectre in the background. The song is about uncertainty, a conflicting mind on who to trust and looming danger.
