"The Poison" as written by and Derek R Grant Mathew Thomas Skiba....
It's not just a pain
A pain in my back
That lasts on my face
My face every night on the poison that took my lungs
Keeps me from feeling warm

But I could've rooftoped you in London
You're just the same as one in Brooklyn
Nothing is safe but now but now I fight with the words
And I can't see so good

And there's gotta be more
Much more than this
I got pages of dreams covered in piss
And a poison that took my soul
It keeps me from feeling anything

And I could've rooftoped you in London
You're just the same as one in Brooklyn
Nothing is safe but now but now I fight with the words
And I can't see so good
And now I fight with the words
And now I fight with the words
And now I fight with the words

But I could've rooftoped you in London
You're just the same as one in Brooklyn
Nothing is safe but now but now I fight with the words
And I can't see so good
And I can't see so good (I can't see so good)
And I can't see so good (I can't see so good)
And I can't see so good

    General CommentHere's the correct lyrics:

    "It's not just a pain
    The pain in my back
    That laughs in my face, my face every night
    All the poison that took my lungs
    It keeps me from feeling warm

    But how could a rooftop view in London
    Look just the same as one in Brooklyn?
    Nothing has changed but now but now I fight with the words
    And I can't see so good

    And there's gotta be more
    Much more than this
    I got pages of dreams, they're covered in piss
    And a poison that took my soul
    It keeps me from feeling anything"

    General CommentWhat exactly is rooftoping? What I hear is "how could a rooftop view in london look just the same as one in brooklyn". Which would add to the "I can't see so good" line.

    Maybe I'm just an idiot.

    General CommentEh, Obiwan beat me to it. There's no way something like 'rooftoping' exists, and I hear the same exact thing he does.

    "But how could a rooftop view in London look just the same as one in Brooklyn?"

    Also... I believe the first verse goes like...

    "It's not just a pain
    The pain in my back
    That laughs in my face
    My face every night
    All the poison that took my lungs
    It keeps me from feeling warm"

    Plus there are few minor mistakes throughout. But I can't blame you since you're only going off of what you hear.

    General CommentIt's 'Nothing is changed' not 'Nothing is safe'.

    I think the poison he mentions is pollution rather than drugs. To me, he's saying there's nothing different between Brooklyn and London becuase it's all just concrete buildings and polution, and it shouldn't be this way.

    Maybe he 'can't see so good' because of smog, or tall buildings etc.
