I heard the sound bite, I read your words right, I saw the light
I heard you singing, I know this song, it's my turn to write
I put this hook inside so you won't soon forget
I got the radar, I can see so far
With my poison eye, yeah, my poison eye

When I look hard I see in the stars
What you've done and what lies in wait for you
When I look down I see the ground
I won't make a sound, I won't need to look at you

Inside the phone lines you think you'll hide and you'll be alright
You're in my sidelines, you'll have no time even to cry
I see your pain, I see my face on your fear
I got the radar, I can see so far
With my poison eye, yeah, my poison eye

When I look hard I see in the stars
What you've done and what lies in wait for you
When I look down I see the ground
I won't make a sound, I won't need to look at you

I can see sparks over a lake at midnight
I see the smiles falling from your face
But you're in the dark, you're in a maze
All you can do is sit here and wait for me and I'm coming

I know the low road, I wrote the code to break in your heart
I see the angles, I draw the cards that burden you so
I have the sight that follows you morning and night
I got the radar, I can see so far
With my poison eye, yeah, my poison eye
My poison eye, yeah, my poison eye
