This world is flowing with anger, pain and sadness
Here I am hiding in the dark cave alone and crying
Here I am armed with nothing but a knife and gun
Here I am suffering from my pain and sadness

 

It has been so long since I constantly start to shed a tear
That tear from my eyes is rolling down like a waterfall
That tear from my eyes is my sadness for my suffering
That tear from my eyes is my pain that I am forever suffering

 

What is tragedy, you ask?
What is suffering, you ask?
What is shallowness, you ask?
This Nightmare, this nightmare must end

 

I had a dream that I saw the flood coming in a city
I tried to grab the nearest object to me
The waves was too strong for me to handle for me
Lastly, I was swept away to the dark water of nothingness

 

I saw the fire in my dreams that is engulfing a forest
I saw the riding flames coming for me to engulf me quickly
As I ran, I tried to run out of the forest, but there’s no exit
As I stood in fear of the flames, I let them take of my own life

 

What is tragedy, you ask?
What is suffering, you ask?
What is shallowness, you ask?
This nightmare, this nightmare must end

 

See the fire engulfing the forests, the cities and the villages
See the fire engulfing the plants, the animals and the people
See the fire engulfing me when I am standing in fear of the world
See the fire dying down as the rain falls harder for many days and nights

 

See the water flooding the forests, the cities and the villages
See the water drowning the plants, the animals and the people
See the water pushing me away to the body of water full of nothing
See the water consuming the world right before our very eyes

 

What is tragedy, you ask me?
Tragedy is something we see our fate unfold before us, I answer you
What is suffering, you ask me?
Suffering is something we deal with every day and night, I answer you
What is shallowness, you ask me?
Shallowness is an emotion that we have no emotions, I answer you

 

This nightmare is destroying me
It is destroying me from the inside
It is destroying me from the outside
This nightmare must end
This nightmare

 

This nightmare must end
