Scratching My Name Into The Wall

It's about someone who keeps having woefully bad luck in whatever they do, love, work, friendship, etc

I've played my hand into another disaster
I think about the times I fell into despair
Always the puppet, but never the master
Everything is greater than I could ever be

I’ve shed enough tears for a lifetime
I’ve been broken but somehow push on through
But I’ve had enough of falling gracelessly
Erasing every hope and firing aimlessly

Blood for blood, victim to a toxic exchange
I only endure when I’m fuelled by rage
Strike off another loss, turn another page
I only endure to quench my rage

Clawing onto a last hope
Scratching my name into the wall
Screaming out for a last hope
Scratching my name into the wall

Overstepped into calamity so many times
My only friend dwells in the cataclysm
I’m sure someone mourns me in the grey skies
Nothing I have has come without pain

If only I could liberate my heartache
And maybe the wind will take me homewards
Am I beyond the point of being saved
Can I expect anything to turn to gold

Blood for blood, victim to a toxic exchange
I only endure when I’m fuelled by rage
Strike off another loss, turn another page
I only endure to quench my rage

Clawing onto a last hope
Scratching my name into the wall
Screaming out for a last hope
Scratching my name into the wall

The End
