Love is a dumb way to die

A tangled web of chains we weave

In its grip, reason bids goodbye

Through its maze, we blindly cleave

.

A tangled web of chains we weave

Fools dance on the edge of fate

Through its maze, we blindly cleave

Unmindful of the impending spate

.

Fools dance on the edge of fate

Risking all for a fleeting high

Unmindful of the impending spate

Love's evil, we can't deny

.

Risking all for a fleeting high

In its grip, reason bids goodbye

Love's evil, we can't deny

Love is a dumb way to die

*

Thanks for reading!
