Dear Tragedy


Dear Tragedy, we meet again.
One day your reign of terror will end.


Why the cruelty, why all the lies?
It's like you build up my hope just to watch it die
Why all the anger, why all the grief?
Can't you see I'm dying, will there be no relief?


Each challenge you bring I rise above
Time and again but it's never enough
Your chaos I'll fight whatever the cost
If only for the sake of those I've lost


You raise the ante with each move you make
But you've taken so much there's no heart left to break


You chisel away until cracks develop
They merge together until fractures envelope
All of my soul, all of my mind
Little of me remains
Bitterness and pain
I'll pay you back in kind


Why the deception, why won't you cease?
Where is my redemption, is there no release?
Why do you haunt me day after day,
And why don't any of my prayers keep you away?


The damage you cause I try to contain
But it's never enough, it's always in vain
I want to fight on but I'm tired inside
For all that I know I've already died


Again the bar's raised, now too much is at stake
Cos now you've taken so much there's no heart left to break


And sometimes I wonder, what have I become?
Is your victory complete now that I am so numb?
None of my soul, none of my mind
Nothing of me remains
But my shell will fight again
I'll pay you back in time


Dear Tragedy, we meet again
One day your reign of terror will end.
