"The Curse" as written by and David/donegan Draiman....
Marked for demolition, I'm
Just a time bomb ticking inside
No hope for the hopeless,
I can see the pieces all laid out in front of me

No point even asking why
Couldn't help even if you tried
Step aside or you might just be the next contestant
To feel the Brutality!

Devastation, Obliteration
Are all to the point of Exacerbation
There's no explaining my situation now,
Why does this shit keep happening to me?

I've held on too long just to let it go now,
Will my inner strength get me through it some how
Defying the curse that has taken hold
Never surrender,
I'll never be overcome!

Too dark for forgiveness, I
Can't seem to do anything right
When I try to rebuild I see my humble shelter
Just fall to the ground again

Object to the evil eye
No point to let anyone try
Take heed my friend lest you be torn asunder
Like all that's become of me

Decimation, Disintegration
Now beyond the point of imagination,
There's no explaining my situation now
Why does this shit keep happening to me?

I've held on too long just to let it go now,
Will my inner strength get me through it some how
Defying the curse that has taken hold
Never surrender,
I'll never be overcome!

I've held on too long just to let it go now,
Will my inner strength get me through it some how
Defying the curse that has taken hold
Never surrender,
I'll never be overcome!

I've held on too long just to let it go now, (Will my inner strength)
Will my inner strength get me through it some how (Defying the curse)
Defying the curse that has taken hold
Never surrender,
I'll never be overcome!

    General CommentIt sounds like the guy leaves a wake of destruction and is afraid for the people around him. He also sees that this destruction has become a part of him and even though he wants to let it go its hard to change who he is. Despite the difficulty however he continues to try to change, refusing to surrender. The curse is an aspect of himself that he cant seem to get rid of.

    General CommentAccording to David Draiman, God loves to have fun with him. It's pretty much all the crap he has gone through in the last couple of years. This song is pretty much meant to be an inspiration to anyone who has gone through a lot in life, to tell yourself that you can overcome anything you if you just keep on going.

    General CommentSome lyrics corrections, the first line is "Marked for Demolition", then i think it's
    "Devastation, Obliteration, are all in a part of Exacerbation"
    The second verse should be
    "To Dark for Forgiveness, I,
    Can't seem to do anything right,
    When I try to rebuild, I see my humble shelter just fall to the ground again.
    Object to the evil, I,
    No point to let anyone try
    Take heed my friend
    Lest you be torn asunder like all that’s become of me"
    "Decimation, Disintegration, all being apart of imagination"

    General CommentI'm thinking it's about a person, who's struggling through constant hardship. But it sounds as if this person is not going down without a fight. I hope he/she obliterates 'The Curse'.

    It's like a take from my life, and I'm sure many others.

    Song MeaningIn an interveiw with daved, he said what this song was acually about. One day, he was riding his motercycle when he rounded a turn and was hit by a car. He wasnt seriously hurt, but his bike was totaled. He got it fixed, and when he drove home from his friends, he parked his bike in the garage, and headed inside. A couple minutes later, his garage was in flames. H?e wrote the song about everything that was going wrong.

    General CommentI feel that this song is about a guy who is gone through alot of relationships and no matter what he does they always end. Though he asks "Why does this shit keep happening to me?" he still keeps trying, no matter what is happening to him, to make it work, as the chorus suggests. All of the verses point to the amount of pain he is in and how it is destroying him. He even goes so far as to say a tormentor is keeping him from suceeding "Object of an evil eye". It seems like he really loves the person he is fighting for and he will continue to fight untill the end be it his (because of how badly he describes the state he is in) or untill he can stay with the girl he love. The Curse is probably refering to another guy that is trying to take away the girl he is trying so hard for.

    General Commenti think its about someone who has set a reputation for them and they want to change but its very hard because they have to face society to overcome this curse

    General CommentSounds like just a guy that doesn't like who he's become and recognizes the need to change.
