Poison Lyrics

Ease your breath, untie my hands
Release my neck, If you can
You don't have to be like that
Don't be afraid, there's nothing strange
It's not a trap
But there's cars coming closer
And I think they're trying to run me over
Poisoning my...

    As someone who was diagnosed with ocd at age 7, that’s what this song reminds me of. Constantly feeling like something bad is gonna happen, always being paranoid. I don’t know if that’s what it’s actually about, but idk

    I think this song is about how he at first just wants to live his life as a trans person and telling people there’s no need to have fear, but slowly he becomes more paranoid and scared just to exist.

    This song is about how paranoia feels. The lines like "But there are cars coming closer
    And I think they're trying to run me over" and "There's ghosts in my house
    And I can taste blood in my mouth" Describe how everywhere he goes he feels like there is something there or something trying to hurt him. He compares it to feeling insane "Don't be afraid, I'm not insane
    Just irrational, but isn't that the same?"
