Fading
Tragic Hero Lyrics


If these walls could talk
They'd say I'm not far from fading
Fading
Fading
Fading

And lately, I can feel the changes
But, I'm not over you
You you you you
Don't know how love has turned to strangers
But, I'm not over you
You you you you

You're my last
You're my first
You're my heaven on this earth
You're the best
You're the worst
You're my blessing
You're my curse
But, now we're fading
Yeah, Fading
Yeah, Fading
Yeah, Fading

Okay, these days you're cold
You just don't try
Always on the go
I don't even know why I let it slide, oh my
I got another show
And I been working overtime
I'm 'bout to his this road
And you know I'm about to lose my mind
Well, I know I get on your nerves
I know what I don't deserve
You treat me bad
You use your weapons as words
You try to use them to cut down my worth
You tried
You said you could do better
I'm gonna argue, and you right
Sometimes I fail but you alike
I refocus then lose sight
America sent me the investment
You're the only one that get me outta character, sheesh
You can't even agree to disagree
It's just you and me tryna figure what a marriage is
I don't even know it
Friends don't know it
Burned down love in the heat of the moment
You say that there's love
But you don't even show it
You say that there's love
But you don't even show it
And I swear

If these walls could talk
They'd say I'm not far from fading
Fading
Fading
Fading

And lately, I can feel the changes
But, I'm not over you
You you you you
Don't know how love has turned to strangers
But, I'm not over you
You you you you

You're my last
You're my first
You're my heaven on this earth
You're the best
You're the worst
You're my blessing
You're my curse
But, now we're fading
Yeah, Fading
Yeah, Fading
Yeah, Fading

Lately I been going through it and I may just spark this (Ah!)
I get scared of my reflection cause I'm turning heartless
I'm guessing love is a face
I must've been blind
Wanted your love to stay
Put your heart right next to mine
I ain't say it
But you know it's implied
Bit the fruit
And now my innocence died
Built a shell, and yea
You know what's inside
Love and hate, and between's a thin line
Yea that's a that's a thin line
But who gets to blame
Who gets to put out the flames
Who's gettin' called out they name
Day in and day out, I'm hearing complaints
You got some crazy and that's in the way
Got a lot of emotions that I can't explain
Covered up the pain in the day-to-day
I admit to makin' all the same mistakes
Put the food on tables and the paper plates
Pray my feelings for you don't regenerate
Pray your feelings for me don't regenerate
One thing's for sure
Two thing's for certain
Loving's risky and it's never safe

Please don't hold my hand
Let it go, let it go
Please don't touch my face
Let it go, let it go
You don't understand
Let it go, let it go
You don't stand a chance
Let it go, let it go
Now let go, let live, let me go
Let live, let me go
Let me go, let it go
Let me live

To me, tragic hero stories always seems to have
a pattern of someone who wants to live an adult
life, before he/she has reached the
emotional/intellectual/spiritual maturity of an adult.


A lot like arrested development(aka narcissism).


Someone who wants to be a true hero, instead
of a tragic hero, has to get rid of his/her
narcissism.

I think the story of Bellerophon is a metaphor for a man's growth:
he starts as a brash, irresponsible youth, who commits murder. He is then sent to repent in the temple of Athena (goddess of intellect), where he finds the means to tame his instincts (represented by Pegasus) that become the weapon to fight off evil and chaos (the chimera) and prove himself a man, while rejecting his lower impulses (the rebellious tribes of amazons) which ultimately gets him the girl, the ultimate prize for his growth (as he can now produce an offspring). Unfortunately he fails the last trial, being unable to accept his fate he challenges the gods and loses, as he had lost sight of his purpose in life and wanted too much.
But perhaps I'm just overanalyzing.

Perseus used to be my favorite hero, & is still a very close second due to the fact that he is one of the few Greek heroes that didn’t really have a flaw & was just a good guy. A role model if you will. But when I heard Bellerophon’s tale, I fell in love, I don’t know why in particular. I feel it’s a mix of the fact that he’s lesser known, & he’s actually pretty competent, sure he has Pegasus, but that’s it, he didn’t have the buttload of special equipment Perseus had nor the supernatural strength that Heracles had, & he wasn’t a jerk like Jason or Theseus. He killed the chimaera with his whit, & took on armies & pirates singlehanded. And his hubris is very human & understandable in my opinion. He lived an exciting life & overcame everything thrown at him, & like he said, I like the moral of pushing yourself, & not too fond of knowing your place, though I understand the lesson of valuing yourself too much could be a problem. Again, very interesting to me.
I choose to believe the more tragic ending where he survived & was overshadowed by other heroes, it just fits with the tragedy of valuing yourself only to be overshadowed. But Bellerophon will always have a fan in me.
