My heart it yearns to sing
and in the end it bleeds
as tears run down my cheek
in dreary monotony

My mind yearns to be heard
but I will never be first
This life I often curse
in this bitter and lonely world

My body yearns to move
yet I will always lose
in darkness do i brood
In the end I’ll pay my due.
