the pessimist lyrics – stone sour

“the pessimist”

half alive and stock reigning free
a hideous god of a man
you got what you want, what more do you need?
if i have to make my stand i will make you pay
i can show you the way, just stay out of my way

i / will not / become / another pessimist
i / will not / become / another reason to hide

skin is a game, war is a prize of the flesh
i know what i want, but what do i need?
if i have to take this chance
i will take it today

i / will not / become / another pessimist
i / will not / become / another part of this

i know why, the consequence is by design
and i know why, we kill to keep our lives inside
and i know why, everything wrong just feels so right
and i know why, the way i live will never let me die

what do i have to do to make you see?
your black of life goes grey
i don’t know what i want, i don’t know what i need
i have to save you too, that’s the end of me

i / will not / become / another pessimist
i / will not / become / another part of this

i know why, the consequence is by design
and i know why, we kill to keep our lives inside
and i know why, everything wrong just feels so right
and i know why, the way i live will never let me die
will never let me die
