Lyrics:

THE CHARADE
by Jaron Reid Rovensky

AND SO THIS IS THE END
LAST CHAPTER HAS BEEN PENNED
THE BATTLE HAS BEEN LOST
LEFT TALLYING THE COST

I KNOW I WILL GO ON
BUT FOR NOW HOPE'S DEAD AND GONE
IT'S OUT THERE IN THE STARS
BEYOND THESE STEELY BARS

NO ONE IS TO BLAME
IN THIS RITUAL OF PAIN
THE SCARS THAT NEVER HEAL
LEFT OPEN TO APPEAL

SWEET THE WOUNDS THAT BLEED
ALL OUR DREAMS INTO THE SEA
AND SO THE TIE THAT BINDS
A PLAGUE WITHIN OUR MINDS

CRUSHED BENEATH THE WEIGHT
OF A COSMIC ABSURD FATE
TOLD TO SEIZE THE DAY
OUR ONLY GAME TO PLAY

ABANDONED, FORCED TO PLEA
UNTO INFINITY
JESTER OF THE PLAY
NO MAKE UP WORN TODAY
