no one ever thought this one would survive
helpless child, gonna walk a drum beat behind
lock you in a dream, never let you go
never let you laugh or smile, not you

well, i just want to walk right out of this world
'cause everybody has a poison heart
i just want to walk right out of this world
'cause everybody has a poison heart


making friends with a homeless torn up man
he just kind of smiles, it really shakes me up
there's danger on every corner but i'm okay
walking down the street trying to forget yesterday

well, i just want to walk right out of this world
'cause everybody has a poison heart
i just want to walk right out of this world
'cause everybody has a poison heart
a poison heart
a poison heart
a poison heart
yeah

you know that life really takes its toll
and a poet's gut reaction is to search his very soul
so much damn confusion before my eyes
but nothing seems to phase me and this one still survives
i just want to walk right out of this world
'cause everybody has a poison heart
i just want to walk right out of this world
'cause everybody has a poison heart

well, i just want to walk right out of this world
'cause everybody has a poison heart
a poison heart
a poison heart
a poison heart
a poison heart
a poison heart
a poison heart
a poison heart

    General Comment:This is a great cover of the song Poison Heart by the Ramones. They've been known to perform it live on occasion, but it has yet to have been released on one of their albums.

    General Comment:i read in a rock magazine (probably metal hammer or british kerrang) that ville befriended a young guy in a bar while they were recording in america, and when the poor kid eventually killed himself, ville decided to start playing poison heart live because the boy was a big ramones fan. dont know how much of that is true, though.
