All For Beauty

I came so far for Beauty 
And she took me down many roads 
Confident and Proud, up on the high;
Broken and Humbled, down in the low 

I traveled so far for Beauty, 
Found myself a long way from home 
Digging graves in the moonlight--
I buried my heart alone 

I sacrificed for her, my Beauty
I held Isaac to the altar
Her praise I thought she'd give me
Knife in hand, I did not falter.

Although, pleasure came from Beauty
Her laurels I was never wearing
Unmoved by all my sound and fury
A goddess expects your offering

Still, I cannot curse her name, 
As I long for her to value me
I first left home upon a train, 
Or perhaps it was a pony 

I came so far for Beauty 
Always took the long way home 
Wondering if my faithful pony 
Remembers the trail I rode upon

All I've done was all for Beauty 
So many roads I've known 
Her pulchritude forever eludes me 
Always the long way home... 

Then one night it hit me; 
Some roads never take you home
Whether a saint or a sinner,
To follow her is to roam
