Obstacle Course

from FULL ON CRAZY CHOCOLATE by Stephen Bard



Oh well go back and try again

Yeah it was fun in the beginning
Not like the same old routine
More like a game I was winning
Field was as fine as I’ve seen
But then it started to change
I’m finding out what that meant
The game got harder and stranger
Deeper and further I went
Now I’m afraid of the danger and I’m just tired and spent

Why does it have to be an obstacle course?
Always so much stuff in the way
Yeah I know that I can see you but I doubt I’ll ever reach you
If I’m being realistic, this kinda feels sadistic
Different challenges every day
Why do I play this obstacle course?

Hey I’m not a quitter by nature
But I really think if I stay here
I’ll end up dead and beaten eaten by an alligator
All down your mad rushing river
Yeah it’s exciting at first
But I start to shake and shiver and I’m smashing into boulders
While I’m carrying the weight of all your hang-ups on my shoulders

I’m running through this obstacle course
Always so much stuff in the way
I’m caught anticipating all those prizes up there waiting
But I don’t think I can make it - I’m not sure I can take it
Is it even worth it to stay?
Why do I play this obstacle course?
