Wanna hear the real truth?
The honest to god truth?
This life is not made for idealists or equals —
The do gooders and the well wishers.
The more you give more you get
What a sham, a myth!
All lost in translation
The more you give
The more you are at risk.
You deplete your energies and all that is you!
All that’s left behind is more expectations
Disappointments and memories.
Do your best
To keep the bar low
Really low, my friend.
Do your best to keep yourself safe.
This world is mighty tough and the roads treacherous
Get a shelter, save yourself.
