"Great Man's Secrets" as written by and David/mandelson Tomlinson....
My lifetime's habits will remain
This crush of hearts won't go away
Tonight, one way, once and for all
Good times aren't possible today

I took a little poison
I took it carefully
It built for me
A house on fire
This poison takes after me

This poison came too far to fail
Desire unwinds in the last hour
Within, the bed is overturned
My host, the antidote is sour

I took a little poison...
Now put me down upon the lawn
Right here - next to my favorite tree
I'm being foolish - can't you tell!
They all look just the same to me

I took a little poison...
