alesana » On Frail Wings of Vanity and Wax » Congratulations, I Hate You


No one ever said that life was fair, and I'm not saying that it should be

So knowing that you are where you want to be, and I'm not, comes as no surprise

But don't expect me to be happy for you

And don't smile at me and tell me things will work out for me too

I don't want your pity

I hate your pity



Taste your vanity and its sweet bitterness

As you hide behind your veil of my stolen hopes and lost dreams...

...I watched you steal my thoughts and had to see you smile

...You took them all...



As you build your dreams on my shattered hopes

I'll look back on a day once loved and fantasize for tragedy



Swallow your pride



Beg me to make this easier and listen to my hopeless cries



Suffer alone in emptiness

I lust to see you swallowed by the mess that you left in your wake

Disgust lies deep within your empty gaze



Beg me to make this easier and listen as my hopeless cries

Send stares into your meaningless eyes



My envy can't describe how I loathe you for having all the stars

Leaving my eyes to marvel the sky knowing it should be mine

Yet it's you I see wasting the dream that only I deserve

I'll tear off your face to see your smile



As you build your dreams on my shattered hopes

I'll look back on a day once loved and fantasize for tragedy



Swallow your pride



Beg me to make this easier and listen as my hopeless cries

Send stares into your meaningless eyes
