"Poison In The Ink" as written by and Matthew Pryor....
Some might say it's overrated, staring at their shoes.
Your arrows don't have poison but they bruise.
I can't make peace with you.
And all my heart is on these pages, open to abuse.
I should try to be dishonest but I lose.
I can't make peace with you.

Angry eyes, there's poison in the ink. You've got so much time to think about it.
Try to put your finger on it and figure out what's right for me and mine.

Expletives and explanations fade bruise colored blue.
A thicker skin develops on the wound. I won't change it for you.

Some might say it's overrated, staring at their shoes.
Your arrows don't have poison but they bruise
It has never been for you, I'm just telling the truth.

    General CommentI think that it's obvious that this if about the critics, and the people that downtalk the greatness of Matt Pryor's work with The Get Up Kids and The New Amsterdams. He's saying that the words hurt, but he's not changing for anybody, because he writes songs for himself, and not the critics.
