Don’t take it out on me
Keep it to yourself
I see you’re in a mood
Why don’t you get some help?

I know you’re disappointed
Frustrated …. feeling low
You’re feeling trapped …. encumbered
You can’t get up and go.

Every day’s the same
It feels like “Groundhog Day”
But …. I am not the problem
I’m hardly in your way.

The object of your anger
The focus of your rage
Maybe it’s your heritage
Maybe just your age.

But …. I am tired of feeling bad
Getting the cold shoulder 
Dealing with your highs and lows
I need this to be over.
