The story's been told a million fold

Of an artist's search for fame

As the years go by

His soul cries out in vain

All in fun when all's been done

Can you bear the weight

The tears you cry

Will never change your fate

Lust for life

And hands that worked so clever

The sadness lasts forever

When the battles been lost a costly cost

Rotting in the grave

As the years go by

The world is left to blame
