Alan Rogers:

People down-cast in despair

See the disillusion everywhere

Hoping their bad luck will change

It's a little harder everyday

People struggle, people fight

For the simple pleasures in their life

The trouble comes from everywhere

It's a little more than you can bear

I know that it will hurt

I know that it will break your heart

The way things are

The way they've been

And the way they've always been

People shallow, self-absorbed

See them push and shove for their rewards

When nothing else is on their minds

You can read about it in their eyes

People ruthless, people cruel

The damage that some people do

Full of hatred, full of pride

It's enough to make you lose your mind

I know that it will hurt

I know that it will break your heart

The way things are

And the way they've been

I know that it will hurt

I know that it will break your heart

The way things are

And the way they've been

Don't spread the discontent

Don't spread the lies

Don't make the same mistakes

With your own life

You know it'll always come back

I know that it will hurt

I know that it will break your heart

The way things are

And the way they've been

Don't spread the discontent

Don't spread the lies

Don't make the same mistakes

with your own life

And don't disrespect yourself

Don't lose your pride

And don't think everybody's 

gonna choose your side

Oh no...

Natalie Merchant - Break Your Heart from the album Ophelia (1998)

By the way that album contains the saddest song ever written in 'My Skin'. Don't listen to it if you are in a good mood. Listen to 'stupidly happy' by XTC instead. :)

The lyric above fits my perception of your journey from my perspective. It is a song full of optimism and I felt the need to respond to your email in song.. I guess you know why.
