Sister, I'm not much a poet, but a criminal
And you never had a chance
Love it, or leave it, you can't understand
A pretty face, but you do so carry on
And on
And on

I wouldn't front the scene if you paid me
I'm just the way that the doctor made me
On and on
And on
And on
Love is the red the rose on your coffin door
What's life like bleeding on the floor?
The floor
The floor

You'll never make me leave
I wear this on my sleeve
Give me a reason to believe

So gimme all your poison
And gimme all your pills
And gimme all your hopeless hearts
And make me ill
You're running after something
That you'll never kill
If this is what you want
Then fire at will

Preach all you want but who's gonna save me?
I keep a gun on the book you gave me
Hallelujah, lock and load
Black is the kiss, the touch of the serpent son
It ain't the mark or the scar that makes you one
And one
And one
And one

You'll never make me leave
I wear this on my sleeve
Give me a reason to believe

So gimme all your poison
And gimme all your pills
And gimme all your hopeless hearts
And make me ill
You're running after something
That you'll never kill
If this is what you want
Then fire at will

You'll never make me leave
I wear this on my sleeve
You wanna follow something
Give me a better cause to lead
Just give me what I need
Give me a reason to believe

So gimme all your poison
And gimme all your pills
And gimme all your hopeless hearts
And make me ill
You're running after something
That you'll never kill
If this is what you want
Then fire at will

So gimme all your poison
(Fire at will)
And gimme all your pills
And gimme all your hopeless hearts (fire at will)
And make me ill
You're running after something (fire at will)
That you'll never kill
If this is what you want (fire at will)
Then fire at will

Rah

    General Commentits about a one of those people that come to your house and try to convert you to a religion. he keeps calling her sister like shes a nun. "i wouldnt front the scene if u made me" fronting that he cares and is understanding and telling her that she (and her organization) are running after something that theyll never kill, theyll never kill evil or convert eveyone to christianity. "black is the kiss the touch of the serpants son its not the mark or the scar that makes you one" saying to the nun that the way he looks has nothing to do with him being evil and the realy obvious part that hes talking to a missionary is when he says "GIVE ME A REASON TO BELIEVE" and "DISH ALL YOU WANT BUT WHO'S GUNNA SAVE ME" the book she gave him was a bible cuz u no nuns hand out bibles. "u wanna follow something just give me a better cause to lead" this songs about religion

    General CommentI heard this song is related to Stright edge dont know if its true cuz i dont know alot about that but it makes sense that the song would be about that:

    "You'll never make me leave
    I wear this on my sleeve
    Give me a reason to believe


    So give me all you poison
    And give me all your pills
    And give me all your hopeless hearts
    And make me ill
    You're running after something
    That you'll never kill
    If this is what you want
    Then fire at will"

    just my thoughts.

    General CommentFantastic song; I've listened to it over and over these days, especially since I've been having a hard, time. To me, The chorus says "Give me all your shit, I don't care; go ahead"

    General Commenti think this song is his own feelings on life in general.

    on love, music, and religion (i keep a gun on the book you gave me, hallelujah lock and load)

    General CommentLyrics are wrong: "I keep a gun on the BOOK you gave me"

    "It ain't the mark or the scar that makes you one"
