TOXIC.jpg

I love Toxic - for me this song was a release of tension and the style is definitely something I enjoy writing in. Released in late January 2021, it steered away from some of the faith based songs and I felt like it gave me an opportunity to explore my voice and ideas. 

Toxic

Was I your guilty pleasure

An evening pastime

A source of entertainment

Well that’s where I draw the line

 

I’m not charging by the hour

But you should pay for my time

I could reap a reward or two for you 

But it sure ain’t worth a dime

 

 

I’m not here to appease your desires

Or lift you from your sleep

I’m not the answer to your questions

Not the one to fulfil your dreams

 

 

Oh I thought that this was neutral ground

Not nuclear or toxic - oh

I thought what we had found somehow

Was almost but now we list it oh

 

I thought it was coincidence

But it turned into fatal tactics

and now I’m left wondering if

it ever meant anything to YOU now

 

 

Well I’m not the punchline

Or a magicians pet

I won’t reappear in your hat 

Each time you forget to pay the vet

 

I’m not the joker

And this isn’t some riddle to unwind

Oh I’ve made it pretty clear

It’s not how I’ll spend my time

 

 

I’m not here to appease your desires

Or lift you from your sleep

I’m not the answer to your questions

Not the one to fulfil your dreams

 

 

Oh I thought that this was neutral ground

Not nuclear or toxic - oh

I thought what we had found somehow

Was almost but now we list it oh

 

I thought it was coincidence

But it turned into fatal tactics

And now I’m left wondering if

It ever meant anything to ME now

 

 

Oh it’s toxic

Its a poison arrow

Don’t hold it in your hand too tight

It’ll end up in a brawl or fight

Oh it’s toxic

Its a poison arrow

Don’t hold it in your hand too tight

It’ll end up in a brawl or fight

Oh it’s toxic

Its a poison arrow

Don’t hold it in your hand too tight

It’ll end up in a brawl or fight

Oh it’s toxic

Its a poison arrow

Don’t hold it in your hand too tight

It’ll end up in a brawl or fight

 

Oh I thought that this was neutral ground

Not nuclear or toxic - oh

I thought what we had found somehow

Was almost but now we list it oh

 

I thought it was coincidence

But it turned into fatal tactics

And now I’m left wondering if

It ever meant anything to US now

 

 

Oh it’s toxic

Its a poison arrow

Don’t hold it in your hand too tight

It’ll end up in a brawl or fight

Oh it’s toxic

Its a poison arrow

Don’t hold it in your hand too tight

It’ll end up in a brawl or fight

Oh it’s toxic

Its a poison arrow

Don’t hold it in your hand too tight

It’ll end up in a brawl or fight

Oh it’s toxic

Its a poison arrow

Don’t hold it in your hand too tight

It’ll end up in a brawl or fight

Oh it’s toxic

Its a poison arrow

Don’t hold it in your hand too tight

It’ll end up in a brawl or fight

Oh it’s toxic

Its a poison arrow

Don’t hold it in your hand too tight

It’ll end up in a brawl or fight

Oh it’s toxic

Its a poison arrow

Don’t hold it in your hand too tight

It’ll end up in a brawl or fight
