Just because life sucks
You don't wanna live no more?!
Fine! So why don't you
just go ahead and kill yourself?
Get it over with -
Stand in front of a runaway train,
Jump from the tallest tower,
Dive into the Niagara Falls,
Kiss a slimy snake,
Stick your head in a fiery furnace;
Life ain't worth living for sissies
You think only you got the problems?
Think again, missy! Life ain't fair. Big deal!
So what do you wanna do about it?
Sleep on a bed of roses
And drink wine and eat caviar?
If life was all good, everybody
would wanna live forever.
Life is a *****!
If you don't have guts
to stand upto her,
Then it ain't worth living any way.
No one is gonna fight your fight;
Either you roll with the punches
Or throw in the towel,
Either you play her game
Or turn over and play possum;
And let me know when you are dying,
I will email some flowers at your funeral -
Or, Stand up and fight life like a man!
