lyrics

So it begins
Or so you did say.
This game you are playing
I'm not going to play.
It has been overdone
You're much too heavy
I'm not that strong.

I bury my dead,
And tread in the blood.
The war you are waging,
You've already won.
I have been overcome.
You are the hunter,
I was the prey.

If this is the storyline,
I'm reading it all the time.
If this cannot end then where do I go?
Back to the start.


But if you didn't exist
Would you be something I'd miss?
If pain had a lover,
Then you'd be the one.
The two of you come in waves,
Weathering harbours that once belonged.

If this is the storyline,
I'm reading it all the time.
If this is the storyline,
I'm reading it all the time.
If this cannot end then where do I go?
Back to the start.
