How does the dagger feel now when you're on the receiving end?
If this is what you call betrayal.
Then this is what I call revenge.

How could I be so blind?
I guess I fell in love too quickly...
But I'm fine.

Imagine where you'd be now if you only knew.
The one you love is the one who's killing you.
I trusted you too much.
I know now that I should have kept my eyes wide open.
The first time that we kissed.
I'll bury you for this.

Just say to me that this time is the last time.
And I'll pretend that somehow I know we'll be fine.

Years spent watching in silence as your illness spilled onto page.
Those were the last days I spend with you.
Before you left, before he came
.

How could I be so blind?
I guess I fell in love too quickly...
But I'm fine.

Imagine where you'd be now if you only knew.
The one you love is the one who's killing you.
I trusted you too much.
I know now that I should have kept my eyes wide open.
The first time that we kissed.
I'll bury you for this.

Just say to me that this time is the last time.
And I'll pretend I'm fine.

Oh It is my fault?
You fell into that illusion you've been living discretely.
Oh Should I blame you in the end
?
Did you ever think the sketches would take over completely?
(Oh is it my fault)
(Oh is it my fault)

Die!
Just die!
You are scum!
You are filth!
Choke on blood as your knife ends the show! Writhe in pain you thought you'd

Never know!
I don't think they dig graves close enough to hell for the likes of you!
I don't think they dig graves close enough to hell for the likes of you!

I handed you a knife and my heart oh
I handed you a knife and my heart oh
And now the dream is over...
And now the dream is over...

I handed you a knife and my heart oh
I handed you a knife and my heart oh
And now the dream is over...
And now the dream is over...

How could I be so blind?
I guess I fell in love too quickly...
But I'm fine.

Imagine where you'd be now if you only knew.
The one you love is the one who's killing you.
I trusted you too much.
I know now that I should have kept my eyes wide open.
The first time that we kissed.
I'll bury you for this.

I handed you a knife and my heart oh
I handed you a knife and my heart oh
And now the dream is over...
And now the dream is over...

I handed you a knife and my heart oh
I handed you a knife and my heart oh
And now the dream is over... ohh
And now the dream is over...

I handed you a knife and my heart oh
I handed you a knife and my heart oh
And now the dream is over... ohh
And now the dream is over...

    "The Artist is stabbed in his side with a dagger and finds himself in a room with Annabel holding a dagger in hand. From here on the story's point of view switches from The Artist to Annabel where she explains that The Artist had slowly been sinking into madness all this while, as he became more and more withdrawn and his sketches more and more violent. Though she loved him, in the end she had to take his life in the attempt to defend herself from him."

    The artist, or otherwise known as the narrator up to a certain point, finally catches up with the thespian in the previous song. It talks about the stage being set, and metal clashing against metal, however futile for the thespian prevails. As the artist lies there dying he blacks out, to open his eyes and find him staring in a mirror, annabel behind him, knife if his side. The entire song "annabel", is from annabel's point of view. However she is not talking to the artist directly, however to the madman that replaced him; hence "before you left, before he came". Towards the middle, "oh, is it my fault? Should i blame you, in the end? " is annabel wondering whether killing him was the right thing, whether he himself knew that he was going mad, and whether or not she could've saved him simply by loving him more.
