"Pitiless" as written by Daniel Cavanagh, Vincent Cavanagh, John James Douglas and David John Pybus....
Is it the emptiest of
All your broken hearted feelings
A serious misconception
To choose a path that led to ruin

You fucked up your life
Can't find your mind, you burned it all away
Ashes to ash
Dust to dust

So quick to point the finger
When you're the source of your condition
Why should I feel sympathy
When you only show me nothing

I live for today
Can't get away from the burning inside
Ashes to ash
Dust to dust

I could stare for a thousand years
Penetrate your deepest fears
Leave you cold with a faceless embrace
Then disappear without a trace

    General CommentWow, noones posted on this song? hmm, thats definitley disapointing seeing as though this is one of my favourites by anathema. Well, heres mine then: pretty much something that I really connect with, sick of people feigning interest in one another that you just lose all feeling for people, building up resentment and distrust. Then some jackass will turn around and call you heartless- but its like hey man,you and people like you are the fucking reason I am this way, YOU made me this way, you are the reason for this epidemic that devours the soul. So now I'm some cold (PITILESS) selfish person who just lives for today and for YOURSELF! amen!
