(tragedy!)
I hear the cries
but I don't see the reasons to which
this cry should lead me to
a tragedy
a crowd gathers as I look with curiosity

and as I stare at a masterpiece
I want to give you the grace that led me
to this state of mind
it's beautiful!

and frightened
I approach a crowd
I act as if connive
the stare at me
with bitter dislike
awaiting a proper response
they stare at me

and as I stare at a masterpiece
I want to give you the grace that led me
to this state of mind
it's beautiful

and as I stare at a masterpiece (tragedy!)
I want to give you the grace that led me (tragedy!)
to this state of mind (tragedy!)
it's beautiful (tragedy!)

and as I stare at a masterpiece (tragedy!)
I want to give you the grace that led me (tragedy!)
to this state of mind (tragedy!)
it's beautiful

    General CommentI think it's about the person watching a gathered crowd, and found out the thing that attracted them is like, a dead person or something and then the person realises it's someone they loved or something.

    General CommentI think the song is about realizing that death might not be tragedy..they seem to refer to it as a "masterpiece" meaning that rather than take death as something bad, they are looking at it as something more like a miracle..the opposite of life..and they've come to this amazing realization that death is just a fact of life, and if you can grasp that concept than you can understand that it isn't really a sad thing..but since most people don't see that they dont understand..thats why in the song people are staring at him with "bitter dislike"
    i don't know if that makes sense but that's what i got from the song

    General CommentI think he's getting all the awkward stares cause he's the one who killed the other person.

    General Comment@punkrockprincess19
    It makes sense if you read it a couple of times over.


    In this song there's a dead guy/girl/thing (or maybe a cat =P) lying on the ground and the people gather around it. These people are shocked about what happened, (yeah no shit a dead guy on the floor >.>), but this guy just can't understand why these people make such a fuss about it.
    He refers "Death" as something "beatifull", a miracle you can call it, because he relies it's just something that belongs to life as light belongs to dark. You don't necessary have to think death is something awfull, but the crowd doesn't understands this and that's why they are looking at him with "Bitter Dislike"
