If I felt any lower

I'd be beneath the earth

If I felt any worse

I'd be carried off

in a hearse

If I felt any needier

I'd tear my clothes to shreds

If I felt any emptier

I'd put sand

throughtout my bed

 

A failure

in my mind

dealt the cards

I couldn't find

I had no ace

up my sleeve

torment slapped me

without reprieve

 

When I see

what I could have been

when I see

what I could have done

when I see

the line I've reached

I swim ashore

like a whale

I'm beached

 

Or will I try

once again

and not give up

till I count ten?
