"The Chosen Pessimist" as written by Bjorn Gelotte, Anders Friden and Jesper Stromblad....
Tell me which side I'm on
Approaching constant failure
Tell me which side I'm on
Who is friend of foe?
Approaching constant failure

[Chorus]
Between love and hate
Which path to follow?
How can I keep balance in this race?
Come faith, I'm dying...

Slowly

In many ways I'm the burden
That divides us from the light
In many ways you're the halo
That keeps my spirit alive

Temptation,
Play the good or evil part
With me, you evoke the dark
Erase the free will watch me heal

Tell me which side I'm on
Approaching constant failure

[Chorus]

Amused by the trials and tribulations
If I survive I fly from here
But as the chosen pessimist
I carve my name in stone
I carve my name in stone

How can I keep Balance in this race?
Come faith, I'm dying... Slowly

    Word, man - exactly how I feel.

    Best part of this song is the final build up to the heavy section - there's so much passion in Anders' voice, and it's great to see him delivering an amazing clean performance in addition to his growls and screams.

    I think the lyric sounds like "Cut my name in stone" but I could be wrong.
