Some people get bit from the inside
When they talk, it's cold and sour
And no, there's nothing they can do now
They've had their way too many times
If you glare to get what you want
It'll become your look
If there's dirt you've got on someone
You let it loose without a thought

Just let the poison spill
Spurt from your throat
Hiss like steam
Because the pressure's unreal

I'm not saying that it's not
You're causing a scene
You're wearing out that note
You scream until it's gone
You scream until it's gone, gone, gone

No government check can reverse it
You'd need a royal eclipse of the tongue
Or is the pain that you endure now
Something you need?
Well, you know how to get it now
There's no climbing up that list
You just move down it one by one
You hate this and love that it shows
You're insecure, but that's no excuse

Just tell them they lie
You tell them the truth
The things you won't take
Are coming in groups
The people abused
The trust you had
And now you don't want it back

Just let the poison spill
Spurt from your throat
Hiss like steam
Because the pressure's unreal

I'm not saying that it's not
You're causing a scene
You're wearing out that note
You scream until it's gone
You scream until it's gone, gone, gone

    General CommentIt's about someone who screams poison, because the pressure is unreal. Someone screams and screams and screams.

    General Commentanother catchy song from the faint-
    gotta agree with x15lifetime on the meaning....
    "if there's dirt you've got on someone
    you let it loose without a thought
    you let the poison spill." sounds like gossip talk to me

    General Commenti agree with the gossip stuff, but i also think its about spreading gossip to get back at someone, like revenge or something of the sort.

    "they've had their way too many times
    if you glare to get what you want
    it'll become your look "

    "you're insecure, but that's no excuse
    just tell them they lie
    you tell them the truth
    the things you won't take are coming in groups
    the people abused the trust you had
    and now you don't want it back."

    General CommentIt's definitely about gossip. "no government check can reverse it" means that too late, if you ever regret or get in trouble for it or lose a friend, too late. It's your fault that "you let the poison spill, spurt from your throat."

    General CommentDoes the point at which he says "the pressure is unreal" not remind you of "unbelieveable"...

    General Commenti think that the "poison that spurts from the throat" is equivilent to the "gossip." the gossip that comes out of your mouth hurts others just like poison coming from your mouth would virtually do the same thing.

    General Commenthe's also talking about people who are generally bossy and "glare to get what [they] want" and so now they're stuck like that. "It'll become your look." The glare will. They've had their way too many times.... it's basically about becoming an asshole
