Recorded live at the Blue Saloon in North Hollywood, California on October 31, 1998.


Words and Music: Eddie Star, David Spielman, Kelly Charles

Intro: Chorus

Verse #1

I am poison to your heart
The bitter and sweet tares me apart
Fatal charm with a sick smile
I’ve had my taste of reality for a while
Shut me out and put me down
I’m in society’s lost and found.


Rejected, infected
Rejected, disconnected
Rejected, affected
Rejected, disrespected

Verse #2

Can you look inside of me.
Does it scare you what you see
Mixed up youth, an aging freak.
Emotions drained and I’m feeling weak
In this spring time of my life
There is nothing but chaos and strife.


Guitar solo

Verse #3
I am pleasure I am pain.
Life is too short to be mundane.
I walk on I walk alone
Trying figure this world on my own.
A voice is screaming inside of me
Saying “this can’t be reality”

Repeat chorus twice
