"The Poison" as written by Emma Anzai, Shimon Moore, Antonina Armato and Timothy A James....
Now is your time to die
We've gathered here to say goodbye
No more you'll cry
No reason left for you to fight
Feel pain no more
Emotions never felt before
Where do we go, we go she'll never know

Holding on to you
To keep from falling
Your eyes are closing now
Another chapter's ending

Hard times we always saw
There's nothing left of you no more
Fear has no place, no place
Cover her face

Holding on to you
To keep from falling
Your eyes are closing now
Another chapter's ending
This is our last goodbye (goodbye)

This is our time tonight

Holding on to you
To keep from falling

Your eyes are closing now
Another chapter's ending
This is our time tonight

    General CommentI think this song is about watching someone slowly kill themselves(ciggarettes!) then dealing with their death, the person is finally at rest, sort of a "last goodbye".

    whats your poison?

    General CommentI feel like this song is about someone trying to forget a lost love. Someone they know is bad for them and are finally letting go

    General CommentI agree with RobertBunch. It does sound like somebody killing themselves slowly, I understand and can relate to that kinda. Like, my dad & sister both smoke and my brother does chewing tobacco and they won't stop. It's BS! The holding on to you part is like about how the singer is trying to keep them alive, by trying 2 save them. (Maybe.)

    General Commenti agree with the killing themselves slowly, but i think they are doing it by cutting, the line "feel pain no more" is reffering to self injury. the person who this song is about probably commited sucide.
