6. Poison

I call this "the song that nearly killed me" because I entered kind of a fugue state when recording this with The Sams -- that basically means I became very stern and yelled my face off during recording the vocals -  it was the only way I could think to sing it.

The next day I woke up so sick it was like the hangover from hell, with barely a drop to drink the night before, setting the scene for one of my most honest and embarrassing moments ever on tape, known in our little crew as "the time Syd cried and told us he loved us"....

But for the general public, it's a song about the ways we all take a little bit of poison every day.

so come on tell me something
are you here to make a show
the money means nothing
it’s just here to make things go

let me give you my neck
so you can choke me where I sit
hurry up, get the poison quick

I get the poison in the spotlight
I get the poison on the stage
I get the poison when I see you
you put poison in my veins

let me give you my neck
so you can choke me where I sit
hurry up, get the poison quick

I’ve seen men take poison
to say what they can’t say
I’ve seen men given poison
and then try to run away

let me give you my neck
so you can choke me where I sit
hurry up, get the poison quick

I get the poison in the guitar
I get the poison on the stage
I get the poison when I see you
you put the poison in my veins
poison in the guitar
I got poison on the stage
I got poison in the spotlight
you put the poison in my veins
