romeo and juliet
i can't remember quite how it all went
but i think it goes something a lot like this
montagues and capulets
two sides divide without respect
and in the end there's nothing left
except some bitterness

star crossed lovers so to speak
a balcony from which she would retreat
this girl about which the whole world revolved
feuding parents in the way
a love to never see the light of day
and then you know i think
some poison was involved

in a sepia sepulcher we close our eyes
one of us lives while the other one dies
one of us wakes up only to find
that the other one is forever gone

in the second act it seems to me
a midsummer night spent tossing fitfully
as the gods played in our fields of green
'the winter of our discontent'
but maybe that's not exactly what she meant
or was it all just some kind of dream

just a tempest on the rising tide
that killed the two of us so deep inside
i will always think upon that fatal kiss
which ripped the girl away from me
and destroyed my life so thoroughly
i just can't keep going on like this

in a sepia sepulcher we close our eyes
one of us lives while the other one dies
one of us wakes up only to find
that the other one is forever gone

the final act it now begins
you never could just let all of this end
keeping king and kingdom in captivity
a romance now so filled with hate
my grievance uttered much too late
turning all we loved into this tragedy

'to be or not to be'
or just to question endlessly
and never knowing anything except this misery
here burns my candle out
fluttering in shades of doubt
and all this bitterness just drops me to my knees

in a sepia sepulcher we close our eyes
one of us lives while the other one dies
one of us wakes up only to find
that the other one is forever gone

and if this is heaven then i want to go home
i don't want to stay here all on my own
and if this is living then i wish that i were dead
i'd rather be with you instead

'i'll follow thee, and make a heaven of hell'
'to die upon the hand i love so well'
'for in that sleep of death what dreams may come'
'when we have shuffled off this mortal coil'
