Lamentation [Lamentation]

This is my pain:
What I get as gain
For playing this game,
Chasing after fame.

My hunger I could not tame,
My want I could not rein.
I sought it like rest craving dame
Slaving away under the rain…

But what do I get in return?
What do I see everywhere I turn?
Friends plotting my downfall,
Enemies waiting for my wail…

This is politics,
Forget about ethics.
In this game we become carnivores,
We eat each other like cannibals…

All for what?
Names on headlines
Seats that hurt
Life on the line.

I chased the wind.
I never caught it!
