Seether: Tongue Meaning

Tongue Lyrics

Well the tongue inside my mouth is not for sale
Any spirit left in me is fading fast
Could you throw another stone to ease my pain?
Could you throw another stone to seal my fate?
'Cause I didn't believe in this world anymore, anymore
I don't...

    "Well the tongue inside my mouth is not for sale"
    i think it means that he won't accept payment for saying things (like lying, I don't know)
    "Any spirit left in me is fading fast" self explanatory.
    "Could you throw another stone to ease my pain?
    Could you throw another stone to seal my fate?"
    people have been beating him down, and now he wants to just die.
    "'Cause I don't believe in this world anymore, anymore
    I don't believe in me"
    again, quite self-explanatory, he's lost his faith in the kindness of the world and the point in living in it, and he's lost his faith in himself.

    "And if I can rise above this I'll be saved
    Can anybody save me?
    And if I can die for love, then I'm enslaved
    Can anybody save me?"

    he's in a rough spot and he knows that if he can rise above it then he'll be saved (as it says)
    i don't quite get the line about dying for love.
    "can anybody save me?" is a plea for help.

    "Second chances are too few and far between
    Will to change this circumstance eludes me still
    Should I grow another shell in which to live?
    Should I grow another shell and not forgive?"

    he knows that second chances come, but the wait for it is too long for him to bear.
    His drive for life, his will to live is gone, and so he has no motivation to try and change what is wrong in his life.
    He could grow another shell (protection/mask), and that would help, but it would also make him colder (not forgive). Forgiving in the past has hurt him, but it's also kept him kind. Not forgiving anymore would save his sanity but not his personality.

    "goodbye cruel world"

    I think this song is about wanting to die. lost all faith and hope, the pain is just too much. pleading for help to be saved and starting over if given another chance would be good but the world is just cold and just couldn't care.
