Track Name: A Poison Tree
A Poison Tree

I was walking in the street
thought this was the right deed
there was air sucking my vein
then I was left abandoned and in vain

I found a scrapped paper in the back yard
words of wisdom, doesn't give me heart
my venom pouring to the ground
an old folk suggests I stay around

The clock is ticking in my head
Old problems rising from the dead
I know this feeling is all mine
To be rid of that would make things fine

There is a black hole in my room
innocence swallowed by a worm
I was trying a spell in my mind
hung man is waiting from behind

I was angry with my friend:
I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
I was angry with my foe:
I told it not, my wrath did grow.

And I watered it in fears,
Night and morning with my tears;
And I sunned it with smiles,
And with soft deceitful wiles.

And it grew both day and night,
Till it bore an apple bright.
And my foe beheld it shine.
And he knew that it was mine,

And into my garden stole
When the night had veiled the pole;
In the morning glad I see
My foe outstretched beneath the tree.
