A Walk Of Life

Walk a highly complex trail,

Walk a highly complex trail, With roadblocks in the way,

Walk a highly complex trail, With roadblocks in the way, Difficult to make it the least bit better,

Walk a highly complex trail, With roadblocks in the way, Difficult to make it the least bit better, Only the unknown future awaits.

Obstacle after obstacle,

Obstacle after obstacle, Each hindering my path.

Obstacle after obstacle, Each hindering my path. No way can I move forward

Obstacle after obstacle, Each hindering my path. No way can I move forward And I’ve no way to go back.

Still I stare ahead,

Still I stare ahead, Even as I see the past.

Still I stare ahead, Even as I see the past. Still I remember the days gone by,

Still I stare ahead, Even as I see the past. Still I remember the days gone by, As the future towers tall and vast.

Feet locked by quicksand,

Feet locked by quicksand, Legs swiftly sinking lower.

Feet locked by quicksand, Legs swiftly sinking lower. Can't move, can't think, can't even speak,

Feet locked by quicksand, Legs swiftly sinking lower. Can't move, can't think, can't even speak, Only strive to drown slower.

And even if I escape

And even if I escape A single step ahead,

And even if I escape A single step ahead, I stop again.

And even if I escape A single step ahead, I stop again. Barely a dent in the distance

And even if I escape A single step ahead, I stop again. Barely a dent in the distance Another hurdle halts my way,

And even if I escape A single step ahead, I stop again. Barely a dent in the distance Another hurdle halts my way, Feeding at my feeble persistence.

Bleak, blank stare from my

Bleak, blank stare from my Haggard, baggy eyes

Bleak, blank stare from my Haggard, baggy eyes Glaring back to the very beginning

Bleak, blank stare from my Haggard, baggy eyes Glaring back to the very beginning But the start is too far behind.

Each moment I could stop,

Each moment I could stop, Give my aching legs a rest.

Each moment I could stop, Give my aching legs a rest. But if I stop, I’m overrun

Each moment I could stop, Give my aching legs a rest. But if I stop, I’m overrun And onward still, I must press.

This winding road,

This winding road, This torturous, twisting path,

This winding road, This torturous, twisting path, Forces me forward even as I fall.

This winding road, This torturous, twisting path, Forces me forward even as I fall. Heaven forbid I stop to relax

This winding road, This torturous, twisting path, Forces me forward even as I fall. Heaven forbid I stop to relax Lest I turn back away

This winding road, This torturous, twisting path, Forces me forward even as I fall. Heaven forbid I stop to relax Lest I turn back away From the futures pressing wrath.

And yet, despite the invisible hand

And yet, despite the invisible hand Constantly spurring me along,

And yet, despite the invisible hand Constantly spurring me along, I find with each day I pass,

And yet, despite the invisible hand Constantly spurring me along, I find with each day I pass, My feet have grown heavy

And yet, despite the invisible hand Constantly spurring me along, I find with each day I pass, My feet have grown heavy And my mind quite worn.

Even with my eyes open, I'm barely awake

Even with my eyes open, I'm barely awake And with every hour, I grow ever weary.

Even with my eyes open, I'm barely awake And with every hour, I grow ever weary. Soon, it seems, I’ll simply be too tired to carry on.

Even with my eyes open, I'm barely awake And with every hour, I grow ever weary. Soon, it seems, I’ll simply be too tired to carry on. After all, this path has turned my vision bleary

And the world in turn is now all too dreary.
