lyrics

What am I supposed to say to she who I loved yesterday?
She suddenly loves me today but tomorrow's so uncertain
I care not now what's in place of the curtain of uncertainty,
Your facade of ambiguity, just know there's no more you and me

I won't kiss the lips that tricked me, nor bow to the foot that kicked me,
Nor shake the hand that fixed me up for this monstrosity
This elongated odyssey, for countless nights without sleep
'Cause when I try and count sheep I remember your personality

C'est tragique; life is bleak
So, listen up as I speak
The same words that you said to me
That had me down and feeling weak
I've transcended past your peak,
So as you get on your begging knees,
I'll listen to your sad plea,
Laugh and say "C'est tragique"

I won't reciprocate the love that you sedate
Me with for fun and games
This isn't love and it's not hate, it's nothing

Now I've got my head on straight
I know you can't alleviate
My painful mental state
So, take the key and lock the gate we're nothing

C'est tragique; life is bleak
So, listen up as I speak
The same words that you said to me,
That had me down and feeling weak
I've transcended past your peak,
So as you get on your begging knees,
I'll listen to your sad plea,
Laugh and say "C'est tragique"
