People tell me you didn't know better,
Give me sermons 'bout the things I do,
Come to love 'em, even wrote letters,
You know I even asked it of you, I said,
I've been doing poison,
I guess I poisoned my life,
I've been doing poison,
It's better than marrying your wife

On the road, the pace is getting frantic,
Specially when your poisoned out your mind,
A flight of stairs is like swimming the Atlantic,
When you're poisoned, deaf, dumb and blind,
I take my poison,
I guess I poisoned my life,
Been doing poison,
I wish I'd poisoned my wife

My father, he used to be a preacher,
Never taught me nothing but scorn,
If I ever catch him on the street, yeah,
I'll make him wish he´d never been born,
He was poison,
Guess he poisoned my life
He was poison,
I wish my mother wasn't his wife, no!
