Cool Hand Luke — Destroying Transduction lyrics

I guess it's true- what I've always heard
We make ourselves feel better with hurtful words
And more times than I even care to know
We hurt the ones we love the most
Forgiveness is what I'm looking for
But you don't owe me anything at all
I'm sorry, It feels like I'm stabbing my own back
I can't believe I'm drowning in the words I should not own

And so today I take a vow
To never open up my mouth
Against another living soul
Be it friend or be it foe

But is this real
Or empty conviction
Just a good idea
Because I'm a Christian

Just to make sure
I'll cut off my tongue
Destroying transduction
And make myself numb

Destroying transduction
[ Lyrics from: ]
