If it's all true, the only time you fail is the last time you try
If I concede defeat, will I be complete in my failure?
Am I incomplete and a complete failure?

Disconcerted after the last of the great you-and-I disasters
I'm spent
I'm done being broken

Tossing in the towel
Washed my hands and cut my teeth
Penned an ode to my Belle Dame sans Merci
And I'm so scarred

And it's all true
The flesh was weak, and the spirit was too
You should know
The wool you pulled down on your faithful martyr
Was blazoned "scarred but smarter"

The oft-fooled prince is losing sleep
At the thought of being a jester for the court of the queen of double-speak

Eight years is a long, long time to seek and never find what you want
You don't know, and you don't want me
I'm so scarred

Count your losses and cast off your ashes and sackcloth
Resigned to be idle for awhile

Me and Sherine bridges the gap between the one you think you can live with
And the one you know you can't live without

It's not that I feel good
It's that I still can feel
That's good, and that's all that's good for now
I'm too scarred
