TOUGH KARMA
I can’t relax because the universe is out to get me
Can’t be explained any other way
You know I’ve tried to reconcile with the fates
But they never show
So before you get with me there’s one thing you should know

I got this tough karma
And I don’t know what to do
I got some bad karma
And it might rub off on you

I can’t be happy cuz the universe is out to get me
It’s been made so crystal clear
And every time I get ahead something knocks me back
To where I started
I should know better than to grapple with the fates

But it’s hard to always wonder, Is it me?
Am I preventing my own satisfaction?
I never understood why fortune has it out for me
But after this brutal year I know I should steer clear

Of all this tough karma
When will it ever let up?
I’ve got some karma
Maybe it’s time to give up

And I’ll always stop short
Before that thought nestles in my mind
I’ve seen the way it gets from those less fortunate than I

Yes I’ve learned quite well
What might become of this dark spell
But so far the plan has been just to rein it in
Until I know no one can tell

I’ll never rest because the universe is out to get me
This close to losing it cuz the universe is out to get me

I’m crying out here
But it seems I’ve made a missed connection
Can’t be explained any other way
You know I’ve tried to reconcile with the fates
But I’m just a victim of some vast cosmic hate
