lyrics

I will teach you the language of the negative
Convert you from your hollow faith
Feel the lash of the pessimist’s tongue
A life consumed in silent sorrow

I am the one that rips down your high hopes, leaving them in the dust
I am the one that sewed the mouth of your idol shut
Mental pain departs as I pull this blade across my flesh
This is how I live with myself, every day until my death

Heartbeats of all you love soon cease

I will teach you the language of the negative
Convert you from your hollow faith
Feel the lash of the pessimist’s tongue
A life consumed in silent sorrow

Negative perceptions spawned from lack of trust
Words elude, reason subdued, I lose myself in hopeless lust
My sight blurs as I press this gun against my head
My body goes numb, forgetting all the words she said

Heartbeats of all you love soon cease
From my hand, the destroyer of peace
They have become one with the fallen
They are mine from this day forth

I will teach you the language of the negative
Convert you from your hollow faith
Feel the lash of the pessimist’s tongue
A life consumed in silent sorrow

Solo: Meehan | Solo: Michaud

Feel the lash of the pessimist’s tongue
Bow before me, the saints will be hung
Feel the lash of the pessimist’s tongue
Look inside me, the darkness has won

Feel the lash of the pessimist’s tongue
Bow before me, the saints will be hung
Feel the lash of the pessimist’s tongue
Look inside me, the darkness has won

Feel the lash of the pessimist’s tongue
Bow before me, the saints will be hung
Feel the lash of the pessimist’s tongue
Look inside me, the darkness has won
