Stuck sitting in your own mess sinking
Call up arms to search for a better word
A mess you made, a smell you chose
I wont break in front of you

Better off on your own you said
I've seen that look in your eye
its embarrassing
one know cold And make this quite a pleasant poison and its

My life
My pesticide
Will tell the tide
Make it last a long one
Its my life
But leave this time
My pesticide
Slow to kill your dreams

Stay in bed and that's another day wasted
Colors fade to grey like they never do
The whole things spins
And yes you chose
To think for only you
So pull the pin and let the whole thing go
Between that smile and look its embarrassing
Sell your soul and let this quite a pleasant poison and its

My life
My pesticide
Will tell the tide
Make it last a long one
Its my life
But leave this time
My pesticide
Slow to kill your dreams

Slow, slow, slow, slow to kill your dreams

My life
My pesticide
Will take the tide
Make it last a long one
Its my life
But me this time
My pesticide
Slow to kill your dreams

Slow, slow, slow, slow to kill your dreams

    General CommentThis should have been in the album.. instead of The Ripper... well anything should've really .

    Good song, I like it very much .. Bert is hard to understand sometimes but I guess it's his "magic"

    General CommentI think it's about how his dreams, or him touring and recording 24/7, ruins relationships, and he's criticizing himself but looking back, he knows it's completely worth it.
    I think it's a "smile you chose to break in front of you"

    My opinion

    Yeah
    This is a badass song
    it reminds me alot of "Sound Effects And Overdramatics"

    General Comment"My Life, My Pesticide, Works over time
    Make it last, well I would,
    It's my life, by me this time, my Pesticide, slow to kill your dreams"
    this kinda reminds me of drinking and drugs.

    "The whole thing spins and yes you chose to think for only you,
    So pull the pin and let the whole thing go,"
    and this reminds me of the Fued with Gerad.. kinda as if hes saying "fuck you you only thought of yourself"
    idk just a thought.

    General CommentI thought he was sincere?

    I like this one and SYOT better than some album songs.. they should've made room

    But this is not whinealot.com

    But then again this is pretty clear in meaning, ending a relationship because the other half failed to commit.
