I Just Can't Win

Will I ever get it right
You shove it all in my face
All day and all night
My mistakes I can't erase

Up is down
Black is white
I'm not allowed to frown
I'm not allowed to fight

I slip 
I fall
I trip
I crawl

I try so hard
Only to fall flat
My body is scarred 
From when the blood spat

We've had this chat
I have to begin again
I feel like a rat
I just can't win
