3 Doors Down - Down Poison Lyrics




I've dreamed about this, sixteen days away
Now you're here, and my head lays
Beside your body, pillowed under mine
You were poison, spinning 'round my mind

"Welcome to my world" she said
"Do you feel alive?" she said
It's all a bad dream spinning in your lonely head
"Welcome to my world" she said
Separated world, she stayed separated
Down poison, down poison

Body withered, body died
Time to take away this life
Bad enough to die from one, not to mention four or five
"Welcome to my world" she said
"Do you feel alive?" she said
It's all a bad dream spinning in your lonely head
"Welcome to my world" she said
Separated world, she stayed separated
Down poison, down poison
Down poison, down poison, down

(Down poison) You weren't there for me, I was there for you
(Down poison) You weren't there for me, I was there for you
(Down poison) You weren't there for me, I was there for you
(Down poison) You weren't there for me, never there for me
(Down poison) You wouldn't die for me, I've already died for you
(Down poison) You wouldn't die for me, I've already died for you
(Down poison) You wouldn't die for me, I've already died for you
(Down) You wouldn't die, you wouldn't die, you wouldn't die, no!

"Welcome to my world" she said
"Do you feel alive?" she said
It's all a bad dream spinning in your lonely head
"Welcome to my world" she said
Separated world, she stayed separated
Down poison, down poison
Down poison, down poison, down

  22. dante101888

    What an amazing song regarding addiction, women/men, and just excess on anything. This is my favorite track on THe Better Life...

    rhombusskullvsteal1

    +dante101888 this song is dope, no pun intended. Yes clearly about heroin.

    Evil Toad

    It can definitely be interpreted as a song about addiction, that's what makes 3 Doors Down so great. Almost all of their songs can have different meanings to different people. But actually this song is about something else. It's about a guy who, when Brad and them were in high school, made the local newspaper, because he'd slept with a girl, who knew she had HIV, and she gave it to him. She left him a note that said "Welcome to my world." I'm pretty sure the guy felt liked he'd been poisoned, and they'd agreed with him, and wrote this song. But addiction is definitely a good interpretation of this song.
