Nothing he can say can make things right
Nothing he can say can change the night
The night that he lost sight
Of what you meant to him
But...
There is no "But,"
Because of him there never will be again.
Because he wasted his life
Trying to do the right thing
Because he poured out his life
Into an empty circus ring

You gave him your love
he gave you nothing but pain
So what, from him, do you have to gain?

Of his failures there is no start
he was born, lived, and broke your heart
Wretched he came and Wretched he left
Leaving you but a little bereft

At least now you are free of him
At least now you can finally see
With eyes unclouded by the haze of love
For the Fool, the one-winged dove
You gave him everything
And he gave you nothing
Save for pain and suffering
So damn him now and for all time
Damn his rhythm and damn his rhyme
You have better things to do

The one task you asked of him
To prove for all the world to see
That he cared for you and you for him
he failed abominably
he took your love and cast it down
he fashioned for himself a madman's crown
You and he should never have met
Your trust in him was a fool's bet
Your mother's words were truer yet
Than you had expected

Nothing he can say can make things right
Nothing he can say can change the night
The night that he lost sight
Of what you meant to him

Never trust him, ever again
Even though he tried to tell you the truth
Never speak with him, ever again
Even though he even told you when he lied
Never think of him, ever again
Even though he will think of you
Never even consider him, ever again

he deserves to die
he deserves to fry
he deserves to buy
A one way ticket to Hell

Just walk away
Don't look back
Thinking of him just got you off track
Never again say
his name.

But know that if you did he would tell you the truth
No reason to lie now
he never had one, he was too blind
No reason to try now
he never had one, he had no mind
No reason to sigh now
he never had one, he left his senses behind

Look at him
What do you see?
A Damned creature walking
It shouldn't be talking
Make him do a dance
Look at him in a trance
Of his own stupidity!

Is there anything he could teach you?
Is there anything you could learn?

No, just let him live and let him die
Don't let him even try
Because if you look him in the eye
You can see right through him
A transparent soul
He lacks control
Laugh at his ignorance
He deserves it
Laugh and keep your two pence

Let him die
Don't you ever dare to cry
For him ever again
He is simple and riddled with sin
Silly boy, so coy
Just a toy
For himself
Let him burn
Forget he can earn
His broken wings.

So watch him cry inside now
So watch him die inside now
And if you so much as a twinge for him feel,
It's not real,
It's just a Lie,
Dying.
