Another day another broken will
Medicine will take the pain
Walls now standing even closer still
Alone bordering insane

Another week another Saturday headache
Fingers worked to the bone
Conforming your thoughts to tradition
Like was it chiselled in stone

Duty to a lost cause
Gasp your last breath
The only antidote was
To work yourself to death

Another year another annual revision
Conclusions bent to hold
Life is easy when you live on a lie
Pursue a futile goal

Another life another lost soul
Feel the regret inside
Anxiety swallowed you whole
Watch your children’s blind abide
The train leaves in five minutes... be under it!
