"Poison My Eyes" as written by Frank Joseph Bello, Charlie L. Benante, John Robert Bush, Scott Ian Rosenfeld and Daniel Alan Spitz....
I always knew I had what it took
To jump over any obstacle
Together or separate we've been through
Fight for me and I'd kill for you
I always knew things were the same
But there's a caution light in your brain
I won't help with your cement shoes
If bailing out is what you choose

You've been spending years and years
Carrying your biggest fears
Too long ,Too long
You've been sucked in through a hole
With your vision of control
So wrong, So wrong
If you leave your defences down
Who'll chew you up and spit you out
If you leave your defences down
Who will pick you up

[Chorus]
Poison my eyes
Better men have tried
Tried to take me down
A man is a man is a
Man you can't see clear
Now your forced to hear
All that you dread
Better to keep it hidden
believing it's what you deserve

You make me feel everything I do
Betters me and sabotages you
But all it does is leave you behind
As you disconnect from the grind
Drowning in your own denial
Is as simple as a smile
One is strong one insecure
Who dies first in our private war

You've been wasting years and years
Running from your darkest fears
Too long, Too long
You've been falling through the holes
Now your vision of control
Is gone, Is gone
If you leave your defences down
Who'll chew you up and spit you out
If you leave your defences down
Who will pick you up

[Chorus]

Be dangerous and unpredictable and make a lot of noise
Be dangerous and unpredictable and make a lot of noise
Be dangerous and unpredictable and make a lot of noise
Be dangerous and unpredictable and make a lot of noise

    General CommentI think it's a song about someone who just feels too sorry for himself and it annoys the narrator.
