Sevendust - Decay Lyrics




[Verse 1:]
Warned, the voices I hear have warned me
The deepest lies adore you
And consume you in every way
You're giving us nothing

[Chorus:]
Decay! Cut the tongue you speak with to say
Don't believe, don't believe it
The wrong way, on a path to somewhere
Don't feed the selfish mouth of man

[Verse 2:]
Born into a life that depletes me
Your empty words have burned you
And condemned you another day
Again you mean nothing

(Decay! Decay! Decay! Decay!)

[Chorus:]
Decay! Cut the tongue you speak with to say
Don't believe, don't believe it
The wrong way, on a path to somewhere
Don't feed the selfish mouth of man

TAKE IT AWAY!

Decay! Cut the tongue you speak with to say
Don't believe, don't believe it
The wrong way, on a path to somewhere
Don't feed the selfish mouth of man

Decay! Cut the tongue you speak with to say
Don't believe, don't believe it
The wrong way, on a path to somewhere
Don't feed the selfish mouth of man

Decay!

  37. Vova Martin

    Не смогу Бог! Тяжко, тяжелая жизнь и я очень тяжелый. Но Бог не такой. Смотри Всевышний я очень тяжелый да и люди, окружающие не легче. Что же делать? Дать какие то отоветы, как Сведетели Иеговы на наболевшие проблемы. И что же я я на это могу сказать - ничего! Да перестань Колька все само прийдет - все ответы!
