The Poison-All American Rejects



Lyrics

You were so young
And I guess Im old
Open your eyes
I keep mine closed

I prefer standing
And you take your seat
I'll be wide awake
You'll be asleep

And you fall down a hole
That's the one place we both know

You take me with you if you could
But I wouldn't go
I guess that sometimes we both lose our minds
Find a better road

I can be pensive
You can be so sure
You'll be the poison
You'll be the cure

I'm alone on the journey
I'm alive none-the-less
And when you do your very worst
Mmm...It feels the best

And you'll fall down a hole
That's the one place we both know

You take me with you if you could
But I wouldn't go
I guess that sometimes we both lose our minds
Find a better road

Mmmmm...
Mmmmm...
Mmmmm...
Mmmmm...

And you fall down
That's the one place in this world that we both know

You take me with you if you could
If you could Id lose everything

(LaLaLaLaLaaaa...)
Can't you see the faces melting
As the sun race from their eyes
(eyes...)

Who are you to keep your head
With the hearts that you hang behind

Look at yourself
Look in my mirror
Dont you see a lie

That you tell yourself again a thousand times
(tell yourself again a thousand times)
And the truth that makes us laugh
Will make you cry

You wanna die? No?

...Til you fall down a hole
That's the one place we both know

You'd take me with you if you could
But I wouldn't go

Because sometimes...
We both lose our minds...
Find the better road...

This song is featured on the "Almost Alice" soundtrack, along with a bunch of my other new favorite songs (great soundtrack peoples!). It's really a great song. It starts as a mellow ballad and builds to a intense crescendo during the bridge of the song. The lyrics are pretty awesome too. ::) There are a few Alice in Wonderlan-y lines in there such as: "Who are you to keep your head with the hearts that you hang behind?"

Enjoy!

I love this song so much! But you know that XD.
This: "Can be pensive. You can be so sure" has to be my favorite part. The word pensive is just so musical.

Oh I know. ^.^ Pensive is a magical word in this song.
You'll be the poison, you'll be the cure! <3
