Sadness roars through my blood
rushing with this unjust
an eye for an eye
regrettably a must

on and on it goes
a winding circular track
hurting to avenge again
til there's no turning back

praying for this justice
soul screams for release
beast howls at your deception
traps that shall not cease

revenge is sweet but for a moment
eventually all involved must pay
sins passed down to sons and daughters
innocent harmed along the way 

Does this make you feel good
are you satisfied
shall we continue this horror
until someone accidentally dies

is your revenge worth all that much
you have always had control
your words have a power
may this stain forever taint your soul

words they are so powerful
from your fragile throat 
did you issue a peep
thought you were stronger
proof now exists
forevermore ye shall be weak

Wonder as you sit there
thinking poor pitiful me...
if someone would have died
would you think 
feel differently

the end is coming now dear
do you feel the dragons flames
hissing with exacting justice
from playing this silly game

Reap what you have sown
in your self-righteous act
Play innocent sweet coward
Retribution we shall extract

Still wish you well after
for sadness fills my soul
for you see revenge is not sweet
it has an expensive toll
