Cliff and I started writing "Poison" before we ended our romantic relationship. It laid untouched for a good year before we stumbled across it again. At first, resurrecting it brought me back to a really painful time in my life and elicited some heartbreaking visceral memories. However, we ended up breathing light into something we had started during a time of isolation and darkness. Almost everything about it has changed, except for the line “there’s poison in your eyes”. The way that we look at one another has actually softened since we first started writing this song.
