"Don't Drink Poison" as written by and Kathleen M Hanna Johanna Fateman....
We learned this lesson five times fine: fake left, go right, back-stabs read minds!
Taillights shine beautiful, they make halos on the road.
Don't give our keys to the city to shark-suits, be -sides, free-things-please!
I left the code at the coat-check pointed to the word on my neck.
That's me, all night on stand-by.
Three words, three things...oh please please!
Don't, don't drink poison!
Wolf Girl, poolside, I'm in the lobby.
Gay concierge-spy high fives me.
It's all cool enemy style, smile at the tv while you download her file.
Watch for the quick slip, money shot, vid clip.
Walk past slowly, pass me the nurse kit.
Don't be fooled by the sister vocab...keep it light, put it on her tab.
Heads up for this tonight...it's some you'll recognize.
Looks like lips and feels like teeth, always waving to the people from the magazine.
There's one thing they love to see...it's tear jearks for charity and blank smirks all the way
to the airport.
There's one drink, on ice, oh I think it's ...
They say trouble comes in threes, I say Chicken Caesar grows on trees.
It could be lucky to be out of luck.
I mean, better than to take the test where amnesiacs must write on napkins.
Prepare for what might happen.
In a trance from polished talk we think...coat throat, lemon lime, hot choc, oh! ...
Fem Exec is right behind me.
Almost there, through the glass doors, against the wall, on the third floor.
We found a robot hand hidden in a potted plant.
And we're not too nice to notice when white wine stinks and we're misquoted.

    General Commentur bro and ur sis is cool. i want a bro/sis like that! anyway, what does 'don't drink poison' mean anyway, is that like not buying into the fakeness and corruption of stuff like big companies or the media? that's my guess...

    General Comment"They say trouble comes in threes
    I say, Chicken Caesar grows on trees"

    Personally, I think that these two lines are supposed to go together. The chicken ceasar line seems like nonsense because it is; the artist is refuting the age-old adage that "trouble comes in threes".

    General CommentThey say trouble comes in threes
    I say, Chicken Caesar grows on trees

    maybe they put the chicken caeser part in
    to kind of say that "trouble comes in threes" is nonsense.

    or maybe it just rhymes haha.

    General CommentI think this song is supposed to be about self-preservation and how it's almost like, a spy mission. Goes along with the whole motiff of New York and whatnot.

    Watch for the quick slip, money shot, vid clip
    Walk by slowly, pass me the nurse kit
    Don't be fooled by the sister vocab
    Keep it light, put it on her tab

    Heads up for this tonight
    It's someone you'll recognize
    Looks like lips and feels like teeth
    Always waving to the people from the magazine

    There's one thing they love to see
    It's tear jerks for charity
    And blank smirks all the way to the airport
    There's one drink, on ice, oh I think it's

    This is just pure speculation but I think it's about Angeline Jolie. She's known for her lips and her toothy smile. She's all over PEOPLE MAGAZINE and is always jet setting to do charity work in other via AIRPLANE.

    The "lips" reference is also heard on "VIZ", about almost "fake lesbians". Angelina is like pseudo-bisexual, almost like she's playing a card or something. But she is mostly marketed to men.

    Great actress though.
