the tired moan

The tired moan I’m tired of being tired I’m tired of all the pain I’m tired of all the lies and hate And crying in the rain I’m tired of acting happy When deep inside I’m sad And other people telling me Be thankful for what you have I’m tired of the TV telling me You must try this or that This will make you beautiful And this stops you getting fat I’m tired of all the bad news Of wars, famine and disease It seems like half this universe Has fallen too it’s knees I guess the other option is I could be six feet under And given these two choices Do you even have to wonder?
