"Poison Like Your Own" as written by and Ryan Alan/kamerman Dunson....
For a minute there I thought you were worth my time.
Now the introductions over,
There's something on my mind.
And now is the perfect time.
Lights out to sleep you go.
This poison's like your own.

Will you think about the things you did wrong?
And by the way where'd everybody go?
And I sat it up and you sat it down
And now it won't be long.

I'm drowning for your love.
Was this a mistake?
Oh my god was this a mistake?
Would I do it all again?
I'm drowning for your love.

I'm stranded and waiting for your touch.
Would I do it all again?

There's a car, by the bridge where nobody goes.
Keep on laughing with every blow.
Is it wrong to be so evil with so much joy?
Keep on laughing with every blow.
And these screams keep on bringing me out of my sleep.
That's what she said when she hit her final blow.

She lied! She didn't live at all.
A question with no answer and now it is resolved.
Would I do it all again for her dead body?

    Poison Like your Own - Ok this song is kinda weird... I dated a girl about 2 years ago for about a year and the relationship was awful... it was one of those physical relationships... and thats all we had.. no love.. just physical. It was def. a learning experience... When i was younger i didnt have the chance to date different girls because i dated my highschool sweetheart for almost 4 years... but thats a different story... anyways this song is about poisoning someone.. to get out of a relationship... like dreaming about it... not really doing it.. You know how you can date someone and not really like them.. but you still dont want them to leave you??? well kill them and you dont have to worry about it.. haha not really but.. thought crosses your mind.. like " lights out to sleep you go, this poison is like your own" poison baby! also "set it up(poison), and you set it down"(meaning you drank it) then also.. "would i do it all again YAY!" so that means shes gone.. ok so remember this is all a dream your thinking this.... ok the bridge of the song is setting up whats really happening.. "theres the car, by the bridge, where nobodies goes, is it wrong to be so evil. with so much joy, and these screams, keep on bring me out of my sleep, thats what she said when she hit her final blow" well this clearly means while i was dreaming of poisoning her!! She poisoned me... and took me to this secluded area in the middle of no where and shes beating me out of my sleep... and kills me... and throws me in a lake... "drowning for your love" so with my luck the girl actually does what im thinking... kinda morbid... but she actually helped me write the song.. we just wanted to make it like a crazy story..
