Verse 1

It's written in every inch of his frown,

What goes up has to come down.

Oh Father, let him climb to the top.

Oh Father, let me watch him drop.

Chorus

History will repeat itself.

The curse is stored in a shelf

In the corners of the heart of the woman

Who tries so damn hard to believe that she can

Chant Hail Mary and change his fate.

But it's set in stone, it's too late.

Verse 2

It's written in every book ever penned,

Prayers never protect men.

Oh Father, reject their sacrifice!

Oh Father, curse their hearts of ice!

Chorus

History will repeat itself.

The curse is stored in a shelf

In the corners of the heart of the woman

Who tries so damn hard to believe that she can

Chant Hail Mary and change his fate.

But it's set in stone, it's too late.

Bridge

He thinks he's figured it out.

He hides his real face

Behind his ruthlessness

Hoping nobody can drive him to the depths of despair.

But history will repeat itself, it's only fair.

Chorus

History will repeat itself.

The curse is stored in a shelf

In the corners of the heart of the woman

Who tries so damn hard to believe that she can

Chant Hail Mary and change his fate.

But it's set in stone, it's too late.
