Alkaline Trio
Lead Poisoning
[Verse 1]
Choking slowly, broken-hearted
Don't look now, here's what you started
And I swore I'd be there 'til the end
We're bitter now, but better friends
I climbed out limbless to the ledge
To bask in my last true regret

[Chorus]
Lay my heavy head here down to sleep
And I pray to Abraxas, my soul to keep
Lay my heavy head here down to dream
Wake up with this lead poisoning

[Verse 2]
Sobbing softly, lost and hollow
This fever dream, tough pill to swallow
And I swore I'd be there 'til the end
You're better off, your bitterness
I climbed out lifeless to the edge
I waved goodbye and leapt, I...

[Chorus]
Lay my heavy head here down to sleep
And I pray to Abraxas, my soul to keep
Lay my heavy head here down to dream
Awaken to the blood and sweat and screams

[Bridge]
Woke up here on Monday morning
This old street, on this dark corner
Waiting here for what tomorrow brings
Silver lake, mercury mining
This mistake, no silver lining
Waiting for a bullet train to bring me my lead poisoning
My lead poisoning

[Chorus]
Lay my heavy head here down to sleep
And I pray to Abraxas, my soul to keep
Lay my heavy head here down to dream
Wake up with this lead poisoning
