poison eye lyrics – chris cornell

i heard the sound bite
i read your words right
i saw the light
i heard you singing
i know your song
it’s my turn to write
i put this hook inside
so you won’t soon forget

i got the radar
i can see so far
with my poison eye
eh, my poison eye

when i look hard
see in the stars
what you’ve done
and what lies in wait for you
when i look down
i see the ground
i won’t make a sound
i won’t need to look at you, hey

inside the phone lines
you think you’ll hide
and you’ll be alright
you’re in my sightlines
you have no time
even to cry
i see you pain
i see your face on my fear

i got the radar
i can see so far

with my poison eye
eh, my poison eye

when i look hard
see in the stars
what you’ve done
and what lies in wait for you
when i look down
i see the ground
i won’t make a sound
i won’t need to look at you, hey

i can see sparks
over a lake a midnight
i see the smile falling from your face
you’re in the dark
you’re in the maze
all you can do is sit here and wait for me
here i come

i know the low road
i broke the code
to breaking your hard
i see the angles
i draw the cards
i have the sight
that follows you morning and night

i got the radar
i can see so far
with my poison eye
eh, my poison eye
my poison eye
yeah, my poison eye
