Don’t you ever want to just fuck off? Aren’t you fed up of continuously fighting the crap life throws at you? Every time you pick yourself up there is something that hauls itself at you, knocking you back down.
I’m tired of picking up the sword and fighting on the battlefield of life. I picture myself on a grassy stretch of land in a suit of armour. The aura is hazy and chaotic, right in the middle of an ancient war zone. I’m one human moving forward through hundreds of armoured enemies coming my way.
