       IN THE MIDDLE THERE IS NOTHING TO DO

I had a great deal of ambition
but the phates prohibited most of it
It was an unfair prohibition
and when I threw a party Satan was the host of it

fire flared from his eyes of red
a mere stare at him would make you believe
in his mind he couldn't wait until you were deemed dead
and all the while all you wanted was for him to leave

I once had plans that could come to fruition
all my ducks were in a neatly lined row
in my arsenal were guns and a lot of ammunition
and I recall vowing to prevail is all I know

I set a chart and a course to an isle of peace
instead I ended up stranded in the middle of the blue
a place where madness and misery will never cease
so now instead of ambition I have nothing to do
