"Pathetic" as written by David Randall Blythe, Mark Morton, Will Adler, John Campbell and Chris Adler....
Somewhere between an excuse and a lie
You found something that you believe
So proud, I guess I can imagine why...
Three cheers for what we used to be
Pathetic
Wasted
Souless
Compromised

Sleep-walking the minefield
Shit talking, it crumbles around you
You come back around

Somewhere between illusion and denial
You drown in your own sympathy
Profound it leaves you, thought so at the time
How come, so you used to be
Pathetic
Wasted
Souless
Compromised

Pathetic
Wasted
Souless
Compromised

Sleep-walking the minefield
Shit talking, it crumbles around you
You come back around
You come back around

Sleep-walking the minefield
Shit talking, it crumbles around you
You come back around

Pathetic
Wasted
Souless
Compromised (x8)

    General Commentthe lyrics are wrong on "she put me in the minefield" it should say " Sleep-walking the minefield ",

    oh yeah and dude not every song randy writes about has to do with alchoholism. not saying that this song doesnt have to do with alcoholism but you said descending was about alcoholism too.

    General Comment"How come so? you used to be" is wrong. It says "A Ghost of who you used to be". and of all the talk of redneck sounding pantera-influenced, the riff during the Pathetic Wasted SOULESS COMPROMISED part sounds way more like pantera than any part of redneck.

    General Comment"Somewhere between illusion and denial
    You drown in your own sympathy
    Profound, at least you thought so at the time
    a ghost of who you used to be..."

    I'm sure that's it...

    Also, it's "keep talking, it crumbles around you."
