Anthrax – Poison My Eyes Lyrics

I always knew I had what it took

To jump over any obstacle

Together and separate we’ve been through

Fight for me, I’d kill for you

I always knew things were the same

But there’s a caution light in your brain

I won’t help with your cement shoes

If bailing out is what you choose

You’ve been spending years and years

Carrying your darkest fears too long

You’ve been sucked in through a whole

With your vision of control so long

If you leave your defenses down,

Who won’t pick you up?

Poison My Eyes

Better men have tried, tried to bring me down

A man is a man is a man you can’t see clear

Now you’re forced to hear

All that you dread, better to keep it in

Believe it’s what you deserve

You make me feel everything I do

Better than me, a thousand times as you

All endurances leave you behind

As you disconnect from the grind

Drowning in your own denial

It’s a simple as a smile

One is strong, one insecure

Who dies first in our private war?

You’ve been spending years and years

Carrying your darkest fears too long

You’ve been falling through a hole

Now your vision of control is gone

Be dangerous, unpredictable and make a lot of noise!
