"Poison In My Veins" as written by Anthony S Raneri, Andrew Robert Elderbaum, Jack A O'shea and James Robert Mitchell....
The night skys black and I'm awake lying on the ground
The grass beneath my feet is hard and cold just like I've come to be
The stars are gone behind the clouds and I can't see a thing
So I'll just let my eyes stay closed just like me, I can't open up

Cause I'm all wrong and I don't see a chance to fix this head
So just give up. Write me off, pretend I don't exist

There's something in an empty bed that makes it hard to close your eyes
It can eat at you until they both turn black and blue
And all you want is a reason you should live
Or a way for you to die, a way for you to die

Cause I'm all wrong and I don't see a chance to fix this head
So just give up. Write me off, pretend I don't exist

The grounds opening up. I'm falling down below
An endless fall into a place that I don't think a child should know
And I'm screaming out a name that could never pass my lips
The poison in my veins that got me through her kiss

Cause I'm all wrong and I don't see a chance to fix this head
So just give up. Write me off, pretend I don't exist

The grounds opening up. I'm falling down below
An endless fall into a place that I don't think a child should know
And I'm screaming out a name that could never pass my lips
The poison in my veins that got me through her kiss

And now I'm too hung up on that to have anything with you,
It's the poison in my veins,
The poison in my veins
The poison in my veins that got me through

    General CommentHow true could these feelings be, after a tough break up, you lay in bed all night long just staring, feeling nothing, then someone else comes in your life, but you feel nothing, and have little to offer, you wish she would just pretend you never met it woudl be easier that way.

    General Commenthehe lyrics lyrics...it sounds like he got wasted to get over this girl that's fucked him up so bad. then while he's drunk he hooks up with someone he doesn't even care about. but i don't understand how he would be hung up on that instead of trying to go back with the girl he really wants. after all how can you be hung up on someone you don't care about?

    General CommentGreat song, I know the feeling. He's so exhausted after a break up and was hurt so bad that he doesn't have anything else to give anyone else, or doesn't want to in fear of getting hurt again, or it's just not worth the effort.

    General CommentThis one definitely hits home for me. Genius writing for sure.

    It seems to me he acts as though he didn't do the breaking up, which makes sense.

    "I don't see a chance to fix this head so just give up.
    write me off, pretend I don't exist."

    It's almost a slam, it seems. He doesn't see anything wrong with himself, therefore there is no chance of fixing it.

    Then, yeah, as you guys said: he's started up something with another person.. whether a relationship or just a fling, he's "too hung up on" the other girl "to have anything" with the new one.

    Amazingly portrayed. Mirror image of a past experience for me.

    Bravo.

    General Commenti can relate to this.
    i think it's about doing tons of drugs until you're so fucked it doesn't hurt anymore.
    nothing hurts. all you can feel is the poison in your veins and the artificial feelings the drugs are creating.




    good times.
