From Ma to Marie, they competed with me
Like free-wheelers in Bedlam Town,
And the devils had come ‘round to roost –
Or like All Souls Day in hell —
And free reign was given the devil
For a thousand years, as well —
Plus a ticket to ride my poor hide in all gears!
No holds were barred,
So I could never let down my guard.
It was as though they owned me —
And controlled my incarnation and destiny
Like I was their ward and they were Sanctity.
What in heaven and tarnation
Brought me into this creation?
But overcoming all ’tis my expectation;
And success will reward me with salvation:
Change my karma, change my world —
Change my whole station!
