"Poison" as written by Dane Anthony Deviller, Sean Syed Hosein, Anthony Anderson, Adam Hurstfield and Steven Smith....
This mess becomes beneath us now
We cannot sweat this poison out
It's in my skin and in my mouth
And when I sing these lies come out
The hooks are deep but so is this lake
Princess please make mistakes
Make it seem like I've done right
So I can sleep well tonight

And it ain't the cost
And you ain't the boss
It ain't like I'm not on your side
And it ain't like I'm trying to keep you
When the secret is you want another guy
You're on my mind

You squeeze them ideas out
And I just forgot math
Got to make some space for pain
'Cause them words just left your mouth
Boarded on a train bound for my destination brain
Welcome in, we've been waiting
We've been waiting

Drinking blood don't keep me young
It's just the taste on my tongue
It makes me stay up late and talk
Destroy yourself, what the fuck

    General CommentI agree with the guy above me.... well, bright eyes and the good life got me into neva dinova, as I saw them live with The Good Life, and they were so great.,.. sitting at the bar, drinking, listening to their beautiful music...

    General Commenti was introduced to them at a rilo kiley show. i had heard the name before but never the music. (unless you count desaparecidos). i got the bright eyes/neva dinova split at the show and got the lead singer to sign it for me, he was just hanging out at the merch booth. crazy. i love this kinda bands, where the group it just one of the crowd after they play.

    great song by the way. i did their slightly dark, slightly country, all soul feeling you get while listening to there music. its like bright eyes gone country.

    General CommentOh, princess please, make mistakes
    Let's make it seem like I've done right

    Hehe. Although it's pretty harsh it's a nice couple of lines.

    General CommentThis was the first domino in the wonderful path I have enjoyed Neva Dinova.

    Why would they make it sound like Conor instead of just using his voice? I though it was too but ohwell.
