"Poison" as written by and Philip/anthony Anthony....
Incompetent son of a bitch,
Keep your tongue tight
Cut your losses, you're on thin ice, so tread light
I don't wanna listen to your "he said, she said" shit
Keep your mouth shut and listen motherfucker
I can't stand this,
It was never meant to be so hard
Satisfaction was supposed to come and ease my heart

I don't feel this anymore I need to get away
All the love in my heart can't even find a way

These words they fall off my tongue like a poison
I hope they kill you all,
I hope I never see your faces again
I see your faces again
Yeah
I wanna watch the whole world,
I wanna watch the whole world burn down, burn down
I wanna watch the world burn,
I wanna watch the whole world burn down, burn down

I won't pretend I'm not disgusted with everything you are
I won't deny that I'm revolted by everything you say you stand for
Where do I go?
What do I say?
Where do I draw the line?
Can I move on?
Can I let go before I lose my mind?
Am I alone after everything we've suffered through?
Feels though what once was us has dwindled down to me and you

I wanna watch the whole world,
I wanna watch the whole world burn down, burn down
I wanna watch the whole world,
I wanna watch the whole world burn down, burn down

These words they fall off my tongue like a poison
I hope they kill you all,
I hope I never see your faces again
I see your faces again
Yeah
I wanna watch the whole world,
I wanna watch the whole world burn down, burn down
I wanna watch the world burn,
I wanna watch the whole world burn down, burn down

    My InterpretationI think it is about people who don't do their own business in general (moral)
    In the song we have to friends who, one of them, always sows discord and this other friend is tired of him and he has enough of everything (I wanna watch the whole World burn down). He "explodes" then and he says everything bad he had in his head. He hopes what he said make finish this relationship between these two friends "killing" the friend! Amazing song, amazing lyrics! I really do think it is like a suggest to do your own business, cause people of nowadays don't do it and to not sow discord!

    General CommentI feel like its about a break up that involves more than the people in the relationship. As in, the singers friend who has always been around and now that the relation ship is going south the friend keeps putting his two cents into every argument the couple is having. He thinks he is helping but he isn't. "Incompetent son of a bitch,
    Keep your tongue tight
    Cut your losses, you're on thin ice, so tread light
    I don't wanna listen to your "he said, she said" shit
    Keep your mouth shut and listen motherfucker
    I can't stand this,
    It was never meant to be so hard
    Satisfaction was supposed to come and ease my heart" the singer finally says everything to his "friend" that has been building up this whole time. At this point the couple has probably broken up. "These words they fall off my tongue like a poison
    I hope they kill you all,
    I hope I never see your faces again
    I see your faces again
    Yeah
    I wanna watch the whole world,
    I wanna watch the whole world burn down, burn down
    I wanna watch the world burn,
    I wanna watch the whole world burn down, burn down" now that they've broken up he is pissed off at the world. "I won't pretend I'm not disgusted with everything you are
    I won't deny that I'm revolted by everything you say you stand for
    Where do I go?
    What do I say?
    Where do I draw the line?
    Can I move on?
    Can I let go before I lose my mind?
    Am I alone after everything we've suffered through?
    Feels though what once was us has dwindled down to me and you" this part is directed towards his now ex. That's just my personal interpretation. I'm sure there is more than one
