Sugar To Shit
Some people look at their lives and wonder,
One day your on top of the world and the next you find
yourself under a rock.
You've spent a lifetime working,
struggling and bearing the pain.
All of this just to live a nice life,
and continue to hope that things go right.
Some of us try to raise a family and live the American dream.
Yet some still struggle and never rise like cream.
Just as you reach the pinnacle of success.
You stop and take a deep breath.
Sigh and say I've made it today.
You've finally got the sugar in life and it taste sweet.
You even got food on the table and plenty of meat.
Your success and accomplishments are the envy of all that surveys.
You have great pride and self esteem.
You shout to the heavens,
I'm living the American Dream.
Then one day something happens that changes the song
that you have been singing.
Things don't go your way and now your thinking.
What in the hell happened?
Something smells funny and you realize that you've
gone from sugar to shit.
You say to yourself,
now isn't that a bitch!
Everything you've worked for has now been taken away.
Success no longer starts with the black letter S.
Then you start to wonder how did you get into this mess?
It has now changed to the brown letter S.
You're talking to yourself and having a fit!
Asking anyone that will listen,
"How did I get into this shit?"
The shit is so thick you can't wipe your ass enough to get rid of it.
From sugar to shit man what a trick!
Houdini could not have performed better than this.
One day you finally come to the conclusion that shit happens?
One thing for sure you'll never forget,
the day you went from sugar to shit.
