Knight of Endale Lyrics Lyrics – Lyrics This Tragedy of Mine Lyrics

(verse 1)
Hector lost his family before his own demise
Within his own creation, daedalus lived and died
Icarus, with waxen wings, somehow learned to glide
And orpheus left eurydice without a fond goodbye
The hero of this story was who you were meant to be
And i the wizened mentor, my death your tragedy
But these twisted myths cried warnings that this old fool failed to see
And now too late, i see this fate (bleeding out before me)

(chorus)
Is this my limbo?
To be torn apart?
Not by crows or eagles
But still losing my heart
The dealings of the mortals
Were not made for these eyes
But now you lay before me
This tragedy of mine
Oh ohh, oh ohh, oh ohh

(verse 2)
Thanatos escaped his chains, refused the mortals’ call
And theseus found forgiveness, in their eyes it’s not his fault
Tortured agamemnon thus proclaimed himself a god
And phrixus saw his saviour seeking someone called a fraud
And i am still prometheus, i thought i broke the chains
But i can’t ignore, not anymore, this all-consuming pain
With a thousandfold threat, i always follow through
I’ll bring fires of vengeance (long overdue)

(chorus)
Is this my limbo?
To be torn apart?
Not by crows or eagles
But still losing my heart
The dealings of the mortals
Were not made for these eyes
But now you lay before me
This tragedy of mine
Oh ohh, oh ohh, oh ohh

(verse 3)
Gods of death and bloodshed have always been my kind
So forgive if i forget how fragile mortals are sometimes
I forgot that if i cared too much then i’d be rendered blind
Titans never die, that’s not the fate of mortal kind
Oh, goddess did you welcome him with arms open wide?
Did you give him needed rest or leave him haunted and deprived?
Oh death where is your sting, isn’t the mentor supposed to die?
And now only the chorus sings this tragedy of mine

(chorus)
Is this my limbo?
To be torn apart?
Not by crows or eagles
But still losing my heart
The dealings of the mortals
Were not made for these eyes
But now you lay before me
(this tragedy of mine)

(outro)
My hounds at the ready, they pulled at the leash
(oh ohh)
I tried to bring fire, and do what i preach
(oh ohh)
Did i fall in love with shadow? did i lose the flame it’s from?
(oh ohh, this tragedy of mine)
Is all fair in love and war?
(oh ohh, oh ohh, oh ohh)
I gave you a home but they took you away
(oh ohh)
This tragedy of mine
Oh ohh, oh ohh, oh ohh
