about

Meet the real Dr. Pamela Lillian Isley, aka Poison Ivy [Batman : DC Comics]...

lyrics

Focus on my lips
Let me give you a kiss
The first one’s got a bite
But the second is bliss
I’ve a little poison
Running through my veins
And when I’m done with you
Only dirt remains

I can tell you wanna try to run
From a fate that was sealed
When you met me
But it won’t do you any good
In this neighbourhood
To run, run, run

Welcome to Eden
My Green little world
Be careful what you touch, it bites
Beauty can be deadly
So why don’t you come here
Let me wrap you up in Ivy tonight

Gardeners beware
Of the hybrids I grow
‘Cause pretty ain’t benign
You should already know
Humans are a poison
Running through the streets
They leave a bitter taste
But revenge is sweet

Why don’t me and Cat and Harley Quinn
Take a shot in the dark
At your posse
‘Cause when a Siren sounds her call
You are gonna fall
Right in, in, in

Welcome to Eden
My Green little world
Be careful what you touch, it bites
Beauty can be deadly
So why don’t you come here
Let me wrap you up in Ivy tonight

Darlin’, poison doesn’t work on me
You can try it but I guarantee
This will only end up with your autopsy
I’m immune to you, lover
You’re just fertilizer

Thank you to the doctor
For botanical twists
To my DNA
Like the vines on my wrists
Pheromones to break you
By the May Queen’s will
While my leafy friends
Hold you nice and still

Welcome to Eden
My Green little world
Be careful what you touch, it bites
Beauty can be deadly
So why don’t you come here
Let me wrap you up in Ivy tonight

Welcome to Eden
My Green little world
Be careful what you touch, it bites
Beauty can be deadly
So why don’t you come here
Let me wrap you up in Ivy tonight

Let me wrap you up in Ivy tonight
(Welcome to Eden)
Wrap you up in Ivy tonight
(Welcome to Eden)
Wrap you up in Ivy tonight
