Poison Paranoia official Lyrics

I want it all, your sanity and self esteem, break you down onto your knees

(to your knees) 

I need it all, your deepest thoughts and all you could be 

(oh oh, oh oh)

I’m slipping closer to insanity, I watch the hours start the bury me

(bury me)

it won’t be long before the sun comes up and rescues me 

(oh oh, oh oh)

[chorus]

and we’ll sing

I found a way, to put some faith in myself 

I found a way out, when there was nobody else

I was paranoid, blinded cuz it hurt me like hell

I was sick from poisoning myself

(whoa oh oh) 

my poison paranoia 

[verse]

you took it all, my honesty and self respect

I tried to fight but now i’m failing quick 

(im failing quick)

I need it all your deepest thoughts and all you could be

(oh oh, oh oh)

I’m fallin further and further from reality 

[chorus]

but we’ll sing 

I found a way, to put some faith in myself 

I found a way out, when there was nobody else

I was paranoid, blinded cuz it hurt me like hell

I was sick from poisoning myself

(whoa oh oh) 

but now i’m asking you to be, the one to come and set me free, 

i’ve had enough of my poison paranoia

[bridge]

one day i’ll see the truth in me 

well shine like a light in the sky 

one day i’ll be everything i was meant to be 

[chorus]

I found a way, to put some faith in myself 

I found a way out, when there was nobody else

I was paranoid, blinded cuz it hurt me like hell

I was sick from poisoning myself

(whoa oh oh)

I found a way, to put some faith in myself 

I found a way out, when there was nobody else

I was paranoid, blinded cuz it hurt me like hell

I was sick from poisoning myself

(whoa oh oh) 

but now i’m asking you to be the one to come and set me free

i’ve had enough of my poison paranoia 

but now i’m asking you to be the one to come and set me free

i’ve had enough of my poison paranoia 

my poison paranoia
