"And They Call This Tragedy" as written by and Shawn/lee Milke....
You make me sick

I'll tear out those diamond eyes I can't bear to see
Crimson spills on paper skin
They call this tragedy
Remembering the nights when you'd whisper to me soft, "forever more my heart is yours"
Realize those words have died

[Chorus]
As the life fades from your eyes
All that I can say is it may not be too late
Try again, make it perfect, make me worth it
Or else die for all I care

If I can not be loved then none shall be
Think of this as I softly kiss your blood glazed lips once more
On this night this thing you call love dies
Your face disgusts me, smile and bear your lies
This broken trust will become your demise

[Chorus]

After today silence will haunt you
Expect no forgiveness for your life will end tonight
Now I grit my teeth and finish what I know must be done
To kill the memory of you, and you said this would be forever

[Chorus]

    General CommentThis song is amazing
    "Make me worth it, Or else die for all I care."
    And the difference between the singing and the scratchy screaming is...different?

    General Commentbefore i really didnt comprehend what these songs were about. so negative but now that my bf has dumped for some other beeetch. i have understand them more thoroughly.

    this song to me is about betrayal. a lying son of a bee. "forever more my heart is yours" & "realize those words have died" & "you said this would be forever" obviously

    "try again, make it perfect, make me worth it
    Or else die for all I care"
    he's giving her another chance to make it work or die for all he cares in another song i dont remember the name right now cuz ambrosia'a playing and i love this song as well. he says " sleep, i'll pretend that you died" its like telling some one to get out there life cuz your trying to forget them you know.
    gosh worst day ever today :/

    General Commenti agree with lindsaybites its like the saying you are dead to me,hes saying as the life fades from your eyes becouse he is giving up on her sio in a sense she is dying to him.

    General CommentI could be wrong, but this song bears a striking resemblance to the tale of Sleeping Beauty..."Sleep, I'll pretend that you died. And as you rest may your youth be stripped away from you." Sung, perhaps, from the queen's point of veiw?
