"Poison, the Knife or the Noose" as written by and Corey/gregoletto Beaulieu....
Don't let this ruin all that I thought that I could be
A life amidst entropy is a fate I refuse to see

As the flames lick our feet
Coaxing us to make the leap
Cerberus drools at the knell
Come join the wicked inside Hell

Fall fast down from grace, the world tries to make me evil
Punished in this corrupt place, life's so fucking medieval

As the flames lick our feet
Coaxing us to make the leap
Cerberus drools at the knell
Come join the wicked inside Hell

They will try to pull us down
But we won't cave in
We have something that they can't take
We know the truth inside
'Cause I will fight this by all means
With poison, the knife or the noose at me

Our world
Is a minefield
With explosives ready to eviscerate the living
Sabotage
The devious blindfold
You're helping cut a hole from here to here below your mouth
A battlefield
This fucking battle's right here
With man killing man we're only fueling our own extinction

(solo: MKH)
(solo: CKB)

Our world
Is a minefield
With explosives ready to eviscerate the living
A battlefield
This fucking battle's right here
With man killing man we're only fueling our own extinction

Die if in apathy your submissiveness their weapon
Turn inertia into rage and ram it through like a spear

As the flames lick our feet
Coaxing us to make the leap
Cerberus drools at the knell
Come join the wicked inside Hell

They will try to pull us down
But we won't cave in
We have something they can't take
We know the truth inside
'Cause I will fight this by all means
With poison, the knife or the noose at me

    General CommentThe meaning of the song is simple. In life, there will always be people who will try to make you do things that go against your morals or ethics. They will try to as Matt says, 'Coax you to make the leap into Hell'. But you must hold fast to your faith, and never let them tempt you. If they want to do wrong, then let them do wrong, but you must never submit to them.

    Great song, Trivium. Definetly goes in one of my Top Ten.

    General CommentAwesome song! I think Dragon is right on with the meaning. I also that this song is about how corrupt the world is and that you shouldn't let it corrupt you as well.When it says "With poison, the knife or the noose at me" I think it refers to ways one would commit suicide to escape from this fucked up world.
