New Time

i want to get out of this job
this is no role for a boy
let alone one that struggles as a man
i have become all nervous
and adopted a shake to my hands
i am in some trouble,
and thought it is not too deep
there is a danger,
that this will invade the land where i sleep
i could lose some weight
and not worry about what i eat
luckily i am quite tough
i certainly will not be beat
i want to get out of this place
how can i make any headway
with an ill fitting face
please, somebody give me a chance
i know it is not a race
just a more complicated dance
