• Pressure ...


    Some Billy Joel lyrics I recently found appropriate ....



    You have to learn to pace yourself
    You're just like everybody else
    Pressure

    You've only had to run so far
    So good
    But you will come to a place
    Where the only thing you feel
    Are loaded guns in your face
    And you'll have to deal with
    Pressure

    You used to call me paranoid
    But even you cannot avoid
    Pressure

    You turned the tap dance into your crusade
    Now here you are with your faith
    And your Peter Pan advice
    You have no scars on your face
    And you cannot handle
    Pressure

    All grown up and no place to go
    Psych 1, Psych 2
    What do you know?
    All your life is channel 13
    Sesame Street
    What does it mean?

    (I'll tell you what it means)
    Pressure


    Don't ask for help
    You're all alone
    Pressure
    You'll have to answer
    To your own
    Pressure
    I'm sure you'll have some cosmic rationale
    But here you are in the ninth
    Two men out and three men on
    Nowhere to look but inside
    Where we all respond to
    Pressure


    All your life is Time Magazine
    I read it too
    What does it mean?

    Pressure

    I'm sure you'll have some cosmic rationale
    But here you are with your faith
    And your Peter Pan advice
    You have no scars on your face
    And you cannot handle
    Pressure

      Please don't remind me, it only adds to the pressure.

      But why should I find my own rationale why I can buy so many from so many others? Wouldn't I be putting them out of work or at least denying them income if I were to come up with my own rationale? Isn't that self-centered? Uncaring?

    2. I might suggest another Vicodin.
