"Antidote for Irony" as written by and David/hamilton Schroeder....
The antidote for irony is held safe far away from you
I heard you say just this one time, so I guess I'll, just sit down and see for myself
I'll go where you take me

And I feel the lies could burn your eyes
And I'll wait till you say please
You said this counts for so much more

Wait till tonight
You'll see exactly what I've seen and can't believe
I'll lie at birth what it was
To find a way to kill the pain

Put down, put down the loaded gun
Pointed straight between my eyes
'Cause you can't fight fair tonight
With words that cut like knives

And I want to see you do the things you never do
And I want to feel your skin but now the ceiling spins in the room get cold
I'll go where you take me
You feel the lies cover their eyes
And I'll wait till you say please
You said this counts for so much more

Wait til tonight
You'll see exactly what I've seen and can't believe
I'll lie at birth what it was
To find a way to kill the pain

Put down, put down the loaded gun
Pointed straight between my eyes
Cause you can't fight fair tonight
With words that cut like knives

Put down, put down the loaded gun
Pointed straight between my eyes
'Cause you can't fight fair tonight
With words that cut like knives

The day will come and it kills me
That the thing that I gave you will take you away from here
I need a chance to catch my breath
I'm no longer the thing that can take away our fear

Put down, put down the loaded gun
Pointed straight between my eyes

Put down, put down the loaded gun
Pointed straight between my eyes
'Cause you can't fight fair tonight
With words that cut like knives

Put down, put down the loaded gun
Pointed straight between my eyes
'Cause you can't fight fair tonight
With words that cut like knives

    General CommentI love this song... but these lyrics are wrong. It's all I ever wanted was... not I'll lie at birth what it was. This song is great but I'm not quite sure what its supposed to me. I did notice also that it's listed as Over Exposed Photo on the Warped Tour 06 CD. I wonder... is he trying to say that he just wants somebody to understand the pain he's been through... kind of like saying that people think they have it so bad but until they have endured what hes been through, they should think again before taking drastic measures. I'm not quite sure that's what it really means... but it's a possibility.

    General CommentI think the irony is how he was I guess her first love, but she ended up loving another guy.
