Crusader Of Hopelessness - Lyrics by Refused

Stretch out in your Christ pose
Marionette of lost hope
Your sadness
At the expense of the world
You're dying to be this
You're living to be this
Energy wasted
On feeling sorry for ourselves
We didn't deserve it
We didn't deserve it
Like using a thousand apologies
As a thousand excuses for
Making the same mistakes
Crusader of hopelessness
Crucified by yourself
What do you know about suffering?
So full of reasons not to see
The possibilities to change
This suffocation
And turn it into focus'
Cause we don't need this'
Cause we don't need this
Forget about your self-pity
Forget about your petty problems
Forget about your small world
