Mr Pessimist Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Time will swallow
Your precious time
Like magic create the future

What makes a man so fickle?
Who put the daggers in those eyes?
Was it to learn through dark days of struggle?
Was it to burn to burst all our bubbles ?

Thunder and rain
Well, the cynical flame
Will it heat, stick and blister ?
Thunder and rain

Evangelistic brother
Should be banging a tambourine
Go wash your hands and fingers
Till your mind is clean

Was it your fate
To sleep like a normal?
Time and decay
No man is immortal

Thunder and rain
Boredom and pain lit the cynical flame
Will it heat stick and blister?
Thunder and rain
Still try to resist the pessimist
The pessimist, no, no

And these things I find
In the back of my mind
Where time lasts forever
I get all mixed, think I'm all mankind

Listen, Mr Pessimister
With your Catholic taste
Oh, listen Mr Pessimister
Pessimister, we do not relate

Listen, Mr Pessimister
Pessimister, Pessimister
Mr Pessimister

Songwriters
ORZABAL, ROLAND/GRIFFITHS, ALAN
