"Down Poison" as written by Bradley Kirk Arnold, Matthew Darrick Roberts, Robert Todd Harrell and Christopher Lee Henderson....
I've dreamed about this
Sixteen days away.
Now you're here
And my head lays
Beside your body,
Pillowed under mine.
You were poison,
Spinning 'round my mind.

Welcome to my world
She said
Do you feel alive
She said
It's all a bad dream spinning in your lonely head.
Welcome to my world
She said.
Separated world
She stayed separated.

Down poison.
Down poison.

Body withered, body died.
Time to take away this life.
Bad enought to die from one, not to mention four or five.

Welcome to my world
She said
Do you feel alive
She said
It's all a bad dream spinning in your lonely head.
Welcome to my world
She said
Separated world
She stayed separated.

Down poison [Repeat: x4]
Down.

You weren't there for me, I was there for you [Repeat: x3]
You weren't there for me, never there for me.

You wouldn't die for me, I've already died for you [Repeat: x3]
You wouldn't die, you wouldn't die, you wouldn't die, no!

Welcome to my world,
She said
Do you feel alive
She said
It's all a bad dream spinning in your lonely head
Welcome to my world
She said
Separated world
She stayed separated.

Down poison.
Down poison.
Down poison.
Down poison.
Down

    General Commentsidebar...: the band's name is 3 doors down, not three doors down. whyyyyy do people post under the three instead of 3? crazy.

    i think this song's about how he got caught up in a girl that he shouldn't have been around, at all. she was bad..she was his drug, his poison. she made him her (welcome to my world). but yeah.. he thought she'd make him happy and for a while maybe he was... but it didn't last.. it never does..

    General CommentActually, I live close to the guys from 3 Doors Down and one of my best friends went to school with Brad Arnold, and this song is about a story in a Biloxi newspaper where a woman slept with a guy and gave him HIV... the next morning, she left him a note saying "welcome to my world" and thats all it said... the rest was just added on

    General CommentYeah, this has become my favorite song next to "Learning to Live" by Dream Theater. My ex told me she had AIDS, and didn't really even care. The line "You wouldn't die for me, but I've already died for you" means a lot, I can relate. The first time I heard this song since then I knew exactly what it meant, I wrote a poem about the way it feels with a similar feel.
