The Poison Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

You were so young and I guess I'm old
Open your eyes, I'll keep mine closed
I prefer standing and you take your seat
I'll be wide awake, you'll be asleep

And you'll fall down a hole
That's the one place we both know
You take me with you if you could but I wouldn't go
I guess such sometimes we both lose our minds
To find a better road

I can be pensive, you can be so sure
You'll be the poison, you'll be the cure
I'm alone on the journey, I'm alive none the less
And when you do your very worst, it feels the best

And you'll fall down a hole
That's the one place we both know
You take me with you if you could but I wouldn't go
I guess such sometimes we both lose our minds
And find a better road

And you'll fall down a hole
That's the one place in this world that we both know
You take me with you if you could
If you could I'd lose everything

Can't you see the faces melting
As the sun rains from their eyes?
Go on and keep your head
With the hearts that you hang behind

Look at yourself, look in the mirror
Don't you see a lie that you tell yourself
Again a thousand times?
And the truth that makes us laugh
Will make you cry
You wanna die? No

So you fall down a hole
That's the one place where we both know
You take me with you if you could but I wouldn't go
Because sometimes, we both lose our minds
To find a better road
