So you thought you could ride the the dragon
You thought you knew all his tricks
I could tell you what you told me
The dragon always wins

He don't care about your offerings
He don't mind your glossy hair
He will tear down all that you built up
The dragon never fails

He never quits, he never gives in
He never gives up, he never has enough

He'll make profit on your sorrow
He grows bigger on your grief
He will steal all your tomorrows
The dragon is a thief

And he knows that you are hurting
When he smiles behind your back
When he eats the light out of all your dreams
The dragon never sleeps

He never quits, he never gives in
He never gives up, he never has enough

He whips his tail without warning
Spins and spirals through the air
Doesn't look back when he throws you
The dragon doesn't care

I'll be waiting here below you
Will try to catch you when you fall
But you're moving so damn fast babe
Don't think I can keep up

He's faster than me, stronger than you
He's stronger than love, stronger than truth
