Lead Poisoning Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Choking slowly, broken hearted
Don't look now, here's what you started
And I swore I'd be there 'til the end
We're bitter now but better friends
I climbed out limbless to the ledge
To bask in my last true regrets

Lay my heavy head here down to sleep
Now pray to a brass fist my soul to keep
Lay my heavy head here down to dream
Wake up with this lead poisoning

Sobbing softly, lost and hollow
This fevered dreams of pill to swallow
And I'd swore I'd be there 'til the end
You're better off your bitterness
I climbed out lifeless to the edge
I waved goodbye and leapt high

Lay my heavy head here down to sleep
Now pray to a brass fist my soul to keep
Lay my heavy head here down to dream
Awaken to the blood and sweat and screams

Woke up here on Monday morning
This old tree on this dark corner
Waiting here for what tomorrow brings
Silver Lake mercury mining
This mistake no silver lining
Waiting for a bullet train
To bring me my lead poisoning

My lead poisoning

Lay my heavy head here down to sleep
Now pray to a brass fist my soul to keep
Lay my heavy head here down to dream
Wake up with this lead poisoning
