Rejoice, Lament - Lyrics

REJOICE—LAMENT
(Music: McLaughlin, Doyle / Lyrics: Harnish, Doyle)

Take a little sip of destruction,
Take a walk away from the truth.
Waiting on a note of induction,
Wait till you hang from a noose.
This is not the last time.

Listen to the sound of rejection,
Burn you with the blade of the sun
Spoken with a lack of perfection,
Fool us with the trick of your tongue
This is not the last time

Ohh, rejoice, lament, then fade away

Givin' out gifts that were broken,
Speaking with a stone in your throat
Livin’ with the lies that were spoken,
Spit in the face of hope
Forty lashes from your tongue,
Light the matches ‘cause now we’re done

Ohh, rejoice, lament, then fade away
