I am only what I am,
    That's just the way it is...
Life is to be endured...
    That's just the way it is..
No point in scratching and clawing
at my fate. The voice I hear
moaning in the night is mine, in
the morning it makes no difference.
Perhaps when I at last see the light
I will at last be able to accept
the way it was...
