​Poison in My Veins

This song is by Bayside and appears on the album Sirens and Condolences (2004).

The night sky's black and I'm awake
Lying on the ground
The grass beneath my feet,
Is hard and cold just like I've come to be
The stars are gone behind the clouds,
And I can't see a thing
So ill just let my eyes stay closed just like me, I can't open up

'Cause I'm alone
And I don't see a chance to fix this head
So just give up
Write me off, pretend I don't exist

There's something in an empty bed,
That makes it hard to close your eyes
It can eat at you till they both turn black and blue,
And all you want is the reason you should live
Or a way for you to die

'Cause I'm alone
And I don't see a chance to fix this head
So just give up
Write me off, pretend I don't exist

The grounds opening up
I'm falling down below
And then this fall into a place,
That I don't think a child should know
And I'm screaming out a name,
That could never pass my lips
The poison in my veins
That got me through her kiss

'Cause I'm alone
And I don't see a chance to fix this head
So just give up.
Write me off, pretend I don't exist

The grounds opening up,
I'm falling down below
And then this fall into a place,
That I don't think a child should know
And I'm screaming out a name,
That could never pass my lips
The poison in my veins
That got me through her kiss
And now I'm too hung up on that to have anything with you
The poison in my veins
That got me through
