"Toxic" as written by Robert Peter Williams and Guy Antony Chambers....
Toxic

Sticks and stones may break my bones
but words can burn a happy home
It's true
I've got words for you
The past is gone it's gone forever,
Don't tell me my pain is pleasure
You, you haven't got a clue
Oh oh I wanna cry but I don't make a sound
I am your child and your child is feeling down
Everybody's toxic in this town

All God's children fade and die
In the name of let's get high
Amen you do it again
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
And when you're coming down I'll be asleep
I can't pretend
It's killing me again

Oh oh I wanna cry but I don't make a sound
I am your child and your child is feeling down
Everybody's toxic in this town

HOLD me
My lord
I'm coming down
Coming down
Oh me
My lord
I'm coming down

Oh oh I wanna cry but I don't make a sound
I am your child and your child is feeling down
Everybody's toxic in this town

Oh oh I wanna cry but I don't make a sound
I am your child and your child is feeling down
Everybody's toxic in this town

Stick and stones may break my bones
but words can burn a happy home
It's true
I've got words for you.

    General CommentThis B-side is AMAZING. It's so dark and doomy. It's full of despair. About the way you might feel and how you see the world when you're caught up in depression.
    I've got the feeling Robbie talks about his own home in this song, how feeling somehow trapped in his younger years of his life made him sad for life.

    I've had a quite "happy" home, still I feel I've been subdued in so many ways. And still that's got consequences in my every day life and the way that I look the world and life itself sometimes: frightened and pessimistic, like there where nothing worth fighting for :(
