"If Your Poison Gets You" as written by and Charles Thompson....
We heard it all in halls of pain
It wasn't good
There was a call in baggage claim
It wasn't good

She had a hunch, it wasn't lunch
It wasn't good
They drove a spike into the punch
It wasn't good

Heaven's boys protect you
I am almost there
If your poison gets you
I will be on time

If you sink to madness
Say a little prayer
If your poison gets you
I am down the line

Heaven's boys protect you
I am almost there
If your poison gets you
I will be on time

If you sink to madness
Say a little prayer
If your poison gets you
I am down the line

Now once again to halls of pain
When will it end?
God's machines say it's your genes
When will it end?

Why hast thou forsaken me
Again and again?
You always said, "When will it end?"
When will it end?

Heaven's boys protect you
I am almost there
If your poison gets you
I will be on time

If you sink to madness
Say a little prayer
If your poison gets you
I am down the line

Heaven's boys protect you
I am almost there
If your poison gets you
I will be on time

If you sink to madness
Say a little prayer
If your poison gets you
I am down the line

    General CommentI could be wrong, but I think this song is about a guy who's friend or girlfriend uses drugs/alcohol. He's saying that if she overdoses ("if your poison gets you") he's praying angels will look out for her and he's saying he'll get there for her as soon as he can.

    "Now once again to halls of pain
    When will it end?
    God's machines say it's your genes
    When will it end?
    Why has thou forsaken me, again and again?
    You always said "When will it end?"
    When will it end?"
    ^^I think this is sort of about the endless cycle of people using drugs and all the pain it puts everyone through
