Song Description

Electro-tinged rock ballad from Worldview's "Our Condition" album. About the need for solace and the temptations of addiction and substance abuse. Alternate versions also available. Written, performed and produced by Oliver Shaw.

Lyrics

What's your poison?
What's your substance?
What's your pickup?
Where's your comfort?

It's no mystery to me
Why you use to console
With these tragedies you meet
Through no fault of your own

And the hit you get is fleeting
But it's going to numb the pain
And the memory of it spurs you on
To work for it again

And you can check out any time
That's your right and mine
You can check out any time
That's your right and mine
The only meaning that you'll find
Is in what's keeping you behind
And for the lucky ones it's love

What's your poison?
What's your substance?
What's your downfall?
Where's your comfort?

In a life you never asked for
But one you've meant to wear
Though it's rarely less than hostile
And hardly ever fair

Now you've seen through all the teachings
That make sense of your despair
And no supernatural story
Makes it easier to bear

And you can check out any time
That's your right and mine
You can check out any time
That's your right and mine
The only meaning that you'll find
Is in what's keeping you behind
And for the lucky ones it's love

When this world betrays our trust
We'll take solace where we must
And though the law may come down hard
There'll still be poison on demand
Poison on demand

You can't always be expected
To fill up your heart with joy
And it's no good to condemn
When you fill up on something more

Cos you can check out any time
That's your right and mine
Yeah you can check out any time
That's your right and mine
The only meaning that you'll find
Is in what's keeping you behind
And for the lucky ones its love
For the lucky ones it's love
If you're lucky once it's love
Yeah you're lucky once it's love
