"Poison Arrow" as written by and Curtis Mathew Kirkwood....
If I were to say to you
"Can you keep a secret?"
Would you know just what to do
Or where to keep it?
Then I say "I love you"
And foul the situation
"Hey girl I thought we were
the right combination"
Who broke my heart?
You did you did
Bow to the target,
Blame cupid, cupid
You think you're smart
Stupid, stupid
Shoot that poison arrow though to my heart
Shoot that poison arrow
No rhythm in cymbals
No tempo in drums
Love on arrival
She comes when she comes
Right on the target
But wide of the mark
What I thought was the fire
Was only the spark
The sweetest melody
Is an unheard refrain
So lower your sights, yeah but raise your aim,
raise your aim
I thought you loved me but it seems you don't care
I care enough to know I can never love you
Who broke my heart?
You did you did
Bow to the target,
Blame cupid, cupid
You think you're smart
Stupid, stupid
Right from the start
When you knew we would part
Shoot that poison arrow though to my heart
Shoot that poison arrow

    General CommentLove this band when they first appeared on the music scene (at least in the U.S.). Love this track...the entire album it's off from actually. Apparently a song about love not returned, which is sad...but I still love this track due to its flow/beat and everything else I am unable to describe musically :)
