Lyrics

6 Second Poison

Written By: A.Chaplin; B.Chaplin (Locnville)

Chorus: You’ll feel addicted after 6 seconds of flinging with her, she’s in your system, sick sadistic after entering her, and even though you know she’s bad for you, poison gets a grasp of you, won’t let it go.

Oh no, now she’s got a hold on you, you better be sure you think it’s worth it, if perfect just on the surface, then surely it must be worth it, but you won’t let go, and that’s the thing she’s like a drug, like when she leaves you just want more, and even more is not enough, it’s tough to be caught up in such a lust but what the fuck, just one more dose, and it’ll be fine, now shoot it up, now feel the rush.

Chorus: You’ll feel addicted after 6 seconds of flinging with her, she’s in your system, sick sadistic after entering her, and even though you know she’s bad for you, poison gets a grasp of you, won’t let it go.

The poison drips right off her lips, one kiss, be ready to take a trip, some say she’s sick, but I don’t know, it’s something about her, that’s got all of these crowds around her, you’ll find she’s hard to get out of your mind, the best kind of high, that money can’t even buy, believe it I got the first hand ticket to the ride of my life, with the first hand ticking to the time of my life, it’s the perfect rendition of how it happened now, touching and feeling, believe me, you want to have it now.

Chorus: You’ll feel addicted after 6 seconds of flinging with her, she’s in your system, sick sadistic after entering her, and even though you know she’s bad for you, poison gets a grasp of you, won’t let it go.
