Poison Lyrics - Alice Cooper

Review The Song (29)



Your cruel device
Your blood like ice
One look could kill
My pain, your thrill

I want to love you, but I better not touch (Don't touch)
I want to hold you but my senses tell me to stop
I want to kiss you but I want it too much (Too much)
I want to taste you but your lips are venomous poison
You're poison runnin' thru my veins
You're poison, I don't want to break these chains

Your mouth, so hot
Your web, I'm caught
Your skin, so wet
Black lace on sweat

I hear you calling and it's needles and pins (And pins)
I want to hurt you just to hear you screaming my name
sponsored links
Don't want to touch you but you're under my skin (Deep in)
I want to kiss you but your lips are venomous poison
You're poison runnin' thru my veins
You're poison, I don't want to break these chains
Poison

One look could kill
My pain, your thrill
I want to love you, but I better not touch (Don't touch)
I want to hold you but my senses tell me to stop
I want to kiss you but I want it too much (Too much)
I want to taste you but your lips are venomous poison
You're poison runnin'thru my veins
You're poison, I don't want to break these chains
Poison

I want to love you, but I better not touch (Don't touch)
I want to hold you but my senses tell me to stop
I want to kiss you but I want it too much (Too much)
I want to taste you but your lips are venomous poison, yeah

I don't want to break these chains Poison, oh no
Runnin' deep inside my veins,
Burnin' deep inside my veins
It's poison
I don't want to break these chains

Device, not devise | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/4/13

Actually, the first line is "your cruel device". That's what it is in the album booklet and on the Alice Cooper homepage. In any case, grammatically it cannot be 'devise', since that is a transitive verb, not a noun. Although rock lyrics aren't always grammatically correct, even in idiomatic or informal English (written and oral) nobody uses 'devise' this way.

Devise | Reviewer: Tara | 2/6/13

The opening line is 'your cruel deviSe'. It's correct in grammatical sense (your cruel plan) and it matches the general meaning of the song. Which in my opinion is about femme fatale. A sort of fatal attraction to a woman that clearly is a tease and heart breaker. And it's hard to resist the temptation and passion.

its your cruel devise | Reviewer: Natasha | 10/5/12

heard it a bunch of times and every time i hear your cruel devise.maybe were all wrong and hes saying something completely different or something not in english or any language.but probably your cruel devise.

AWESOME | Reviewer: Natasha | 9/14/12

i heard this song on metal mania (actually saw and heard) and i LOVED it!!!!i heard it a couple days later on the radio during the 80's at 8 or house of hair.i sometimes get this song stuck in my head at school or in the morning like today.i'm 12 and only one of my friends have heard of alice cooper.one of my friends thought he was a girl when i asjked her.this song was stuck in my head so i looked up the lyrics.it sucks when you don't have many friends who lsten to the same bands you do.i talk to my sister even though she don't care.my youngwst sister likes the same music i do so she might like this.i am watching the fourth kind right now and at five i will watch rock fest.

Poison | Reviewer: Some Guy | 7/26/12

I used to listen to this song all the time when I was younger and then I just stopped. 5 years later I find it and I'm mouthing the words! I was surprised to see that I still remembered the lyrics. On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the best I'd give it a 9 1/2. GOOD SONG

BEST SONG EVER!!! | Reviewer: Amy | 6/2/10

I love this song soooooooo much! I could listen to this song all day and never get sick of it! :P All those people out there who says the lyrics are 'Your deep eyes' (or whatever) it's not. It's 'you're cruel devise'. I've been listening to this nearly every day for 3 years now and I'm always on singstar and comparing lyrics and several lyric sites can't lie!

Victim of love | Reviewer: Observer | 6/4/09

The Lyric hero in this song is playing a victim. This role may be fits to Alice Cooper’s stage image – the bad guy who takes his punishment at the end. The song doesn’t tell the beginning of this love story – it shows just the end - a man with a broken heart. The hero is burning in passion for her, but his love seemed to be gone. The song says good-bye to love. Everybody who’s been in love, knows this feeling - the sweet pain and the pleasure to be completely absorbed in it. As a song lyric the “Poison” is one of the best – not too much words, but the exact ones! I’ve been listening to this song for the last 2 days – may be for 30 times. I am not 14 – even my daughter is much more. I am not drunk or smth. And certainly, I had listen to this song many times before - obviously not so carefully. But now this song is driving me crazy. I feel fresh blood “running through my veins”. I do not feel any chains to break down. I feel so enthusiastic listening to this great song!

Poison | Reviewer: Nancy | 10/22/08

Actually, this song isn't really about love. It's about flaming passion, about wanting someone you can't have so much that it's killing you. Basically chasing after someone who is bad for you, who is your poison. We've all been there....

Alice Cooper rules!

Trash | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/14/08

Although i really like this song i rekon the whole Trash album is awsome.. and to be honest it does sound like "crruel device" even though "deep eyes" makes more sense.. oh yer and I LOVE YOU ALICE COOPER

It's the poison for christ's sake! | Reviewer: TheLonewolf | 6/18/08

My absolute favorite is Godsmack - Straight Out Of Line I like the song VERY VERY MUCH but I don't consider it the BEST song ever, it's just my own taste, so some people need to learn the difference between their opinion and the opinion of others.
Enough bullshitting! Time to review the song.

Well, it's THE POISON baby! Nothing else to say, Alice just rocked the hell outta everyone with it. It has one of the best love lyrics I've ever read/heard. I really love the chorus of the song, it's so powerful like saying: "If we get together, this will be the end of me" such powerful love that will kill. I think today's singers should learn something from Alice before they try to give us their pseudo love songs. Alice Cooper RULES and that's IT! I really REALLY Love this song. And who doesn't like it - has never fallen in love :P (this is a joke, flamers and haters STFU!). And after all the song has 2 official covers! (Both by women singers) Do you know how many songs get official covers? Lemme tell ya! Only the really influential songs get to be covered (original still rules of course)

P.s. The uncensored clip rules :D


To those who say this is not the best song | Reviewer: Jess | 1/24/08

Just because it's not your favourite song doesn't mean thatit's not the best you say that all those other songs are the best and maybe they are to you and that's fine, but that doesn't mean they can't like that song the best and it shouldn't be anyone's place to question whether they are a fan or not just because they like this song poison and not another song by Alice Cooper, I think this is the best song of all time, regardless

opinions are different | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/23/07

each person has a different favourite song. and obviously they will call their preffered song the best song. obviously theirs is poison. and that may not be yours. Doesnt mean their any less of a fan.
the "best song" of an artist is someones opinion.

Poison | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/13/07

Err, to danni, who said this is by far one of coopers greatest songs...are you even a fan of him? i mean, its a good song, dont get me wrong. but one of his best? no. that belongs to Halo of Flies, Billion Dollar Babies, Generation Landslide, 18, Raped & Freezin, This House Is Haunted, Muscle of Love, stuff from his 70's era

poison | Reviewer: andrea | 8/12/07

well, i've just played that paticular line around 15 times, couldn't tell if its either or. deep eyes makes more sense though.

about the song poison | Reviewer: girl in norway | 7/29/07

it's device, because I've listen to the song many times and it can't be deep eyes. But it sounds better with deep eyes, so I'm a bit agree...
