With your hand in mine
The others tell me they need you
To keep the rest at bay
Yelling sadness disagreement
Pulling you into me into body
The others will think ill of me.

You are sustenance
But my companion
So I want alone
Companion doesn't make good conversation

Giving you up I drown in eye water
As you are taken away
Hiding the fact that I'm breaking apart inside

You are sustenance
But my companion
So I want alone
Companion doesn't make good conversation

Sitting at the social event
I devour more of you
Because I know that's what you'd want
Your head on a plate
Eyes cold in sleep
You taste like dreams

You are sustenance
But my companion
So I want alone
Companion doesn't make good conversation

    General Commenti've noticed a lot of allusions to "Prufrock" by T.S. Elliot: sitting at the social event, eyes cold in sleep, head on a plate, the others will think ill of me, etc. I wonder if they are deliberate or not. Just kinda curious if maybe Elliot inspired some of their songs. After all, there is a song called Turn Down Elliot. Maybe theres a connection?

    General CommentI adore this song. Probably my favorite off the album. I never get tired of listening to it over and over again. it gives me an undescribable feeling.

    I devour more of you
    Because I know that's what you'd want
    Your head on a plate
    Eyes cold in sleep
    YOU TASTE LIKE DREAMS

    General CommentSo I'm a rather new Poison the Well fan, a friend of mine recommended them to me, and I went and checked their myspace to see what they were all about, and instantly I went out and got everything of theirs that I could, When I heard this song it was like magic, I said to myself "I am going to listen to the shit out of this song, and love it".

    But the lyrics are slightly confusing... Its obviously about a girl, and one he had to let go, but why? My take on it for now, is that she was good with everything, but he couldn't connect with her on a conversational level, like their only problem was they didn't know how to communicate...

    General Commentone armed cow... i would recomend norma jean, though they are slightly heavier then ptw. norma's latest, redeemer, reminds me so much of this latest ptw album. edgy but still so artistic and amazing. this song is clearly about breaking up with someone as everyone has said. one armed cow seems pretty right with the communication thing. it also seems like he was using her. sustenance, referencing to eating her. i dont know
    just throwing ideas around.
