"Drink Of Poison" as written by and David/hamilton Schroeder....
Dressed to kill this thrill will be the end
Save your side of the story
It's just so annoying
There's pictures in my head I can't give back

'Cause you had to be the life of the party
And will you not know what to say
To the boy who gets your heart someday
And you're used body

With this drink of poison
You'll choke (but my bleeding heart will ruin it all!)
'Cause I know history will repeat itself

Okay you got me now I must confess
This humbling experience has broughten me bliss
So many things are just best left unsaid
'Cause you're such a liar, You're such a good liar

And will you not know what to say
To the boy who gets your heart someday
And your used body

    General CommentDefinitely my favorite song by So They Say.


    "Dressed to kill this thrill will be the end
    Save your side of the story
    It's just so annoying
    There's pictures in my head I can't give back"

    So there's this guy who's inviting his girlfriend over for like, a nice dinner or something.
    And she's trying to explain what happened, but he doesn't want to hear it.
    Because he knows what he saw and that's that.

    " 'Cause you had to be the life of the party
    And will you not know what to say
    To the boy who gets your heart someday
    And you're used body"

    So he's thinking, 'You're a freaking whore.
    You know that.
    What're you going to say when the love of your life asks if you're pure or not?!'

    "With this drink of poison
    You'll choke (but my bleeding heart will ruin it all!)
    'cause I know history will repeat itself "

    He probably put something in her drink.
    So she won't do something like that ever again.
    But he can't enjoy the moment,
    Because he's still hurt.

    "Okay you got me now I must confess
    This humbling experience has broughten me bliss
    So many things are just best left unsaid
    'Cause you're such a liar, You're such a good liar"

    She probably said something that was just really not needed or something along those lines.
    And he believed her for a minute or three.
    But he's just like, "Shut up. It's over."

    The last part throws me off,
    So I don't understand it completely.
    Some songs are just like that, though.
    You'll never know what they actually mean.

    But some of this song is probably metaphorical.
    Like the poison.
    And most likely his bleeding heart.

    General CommentI think it has to do with a guy's girlfriend who partied 24/7 and was a slut. And in the end, she'll actually meet a guy who she wants to spend the rest of her life with, but she already lost her virginity and what not. (To the boy who gets your heart someday
    And your used body).
