A Week in a Month

Another month almost over
another year passes by
He hopes he’ll no more suffer
his story is of one that tries

A week in the month comes hard
seven days of slavedom to the system
He feels he’s always on guard
in this fast falling kingdom

He’s made changes though
hopefully for the best
Set himself on a new path to grow
his life now on a quest

A week in the month comes hard
seven days of slavedom to the system
He feels he’s always on guard
in this fast falling kingdom

What got him to this point
is a sad story indeed
Death, families and bad job choice
his soul could no longer feed

A week in the month comes hard
seven days of slavedom to the system
He feels he’s always on guard
in this fast falling kingdom

Like a wraith he wandered about
no-one seeing this lost soul
No matter how much he’d scream and shout
he’d be down his deep dark hole

A week in the month comes hard
seven days of slavedom to the system
He feels he’s always on guard
in this fast falling kingdom

But one day he finally snapped
A bad week it was
His anger, his stubborn nature the cause
he saw a way from the trap

A week in the month comes hard
seven days of slavedom to the system
He feels he’s always on guard
in this fast falling kingdom

Packing his bags with basic things
he left all behind
To see what the new life would bring
to see what he could find

A week in the month comes hard
seven days of slavedom to the system
He feels he’s always on guard
in this fast falling kingdom

His only fear is to fall again
back into that hole
But he’s now strong enough to defend
to fight for his dreams and goals

So a week in the month may come hard
but no longer a slave to the system
He’ll fight like a wolf on guard
and build his own small kingdom
