I see her body move in deadly positons
Her fingers graze my neck for the last time
Her lungs are spilling out
What's keeping me alive?
What's keeping her alive?
Let's see, let's cut of all her long blond hair

Listen sweetie
You never meant that much to me
Hope your eyes can see
What you did to me
You'll always be my enemy

I see the victims of the deadliest poison
My face has turned her skin chalk white
My lungs are spilling out
What's keeping her alive, but was she ever dead?
Let's see, there's footprints trailing out of the morgue

Listen sweetie
You never meant that much to me
Hope your eyes can see
What you did to me
You'll always be my enemy

I see her body move
I watch her body move
She's deadly poison
My only poison
I see her body move
I watch her body move
She's deadly poison
My only poison

Let's see, let's cut of all her long blond hair

Listen sweetie
You never meant that much to me
Hope your eyes can see
What you did to me
You'll always be my enemy
My enemy
My enemy
What you did to me
You'll always be my...

Listen sweetie (I see her body move)
You never meant that much to me (I watch her body move, she's deadly poison, my only poison)
Hope your eyes can see (I see her body move)
What you did to me (I watch her body move)
You'll always be my enemy (She's deadly poison, my only poison)

    My InterpretationWhen I first heard this song, I also thought it was literally about death. But, I couldn't figure out how anything made sense with that interpretation. Now, I imagine this song is in the middle of a scenario where the guy is pissed at his girlfriend after finding about her past and she initially tried calming him down.

    "deadly positions"-- Deadly in the seductive sense. Perhaps she was trying to be charming/seductive to change the atmosphere.
    "Her fingers graze my neck for the last time" -- Her touch & charm wasn't working on him.
    "Her lungs are spilling out" -- she's trying to sweet-talk him out of the argument.

    Chorus -- He's telling her off, as well as trying convince himself he doesn't need her.

    "i see the victims of the deadliest poison"-- he's remembering and probably confronting her past.

    "my face has turned her skin chalk white"-- he's probably pissed and she's either guilty for being caught or afraid of his anger.

    "my only poison"-- even though he knows she's bad for him, he's still addicted to her and can't quite let her go.

    I don't understand how to interpret the other stuff though:
    "Let's see, let's cut of all her long blond hair" -- Is he just saying that out of anger?
    "What's keeping me alive?/ What's keeping her alive?" --
    is "alive" supposed to contrast her "deadliest positions"?

    "Let's see, there's footprints trailing out of the morgue"-- does this refer to seeing the route of her cold-heartedness?

    General Comment"Let's see let's cut off all her long blonde hair" is saying let's see if her words are legit, if I take away from her beauty I can see through the bullshit. I just got out of a year and a half relationship with a fucking whore who has this kind of hold on me. I love her but I don't want to. I want to fucking hate her, I want her out of my heart. This song fits perfectly.

    General Commentmy sister thought that this was Fall Out Boy at first. i think it could be about how he lusts for a certain girl but actually hates her, and he can't stop his addiction (i guess) for her.
