What was told
          Years ago - 
          Now is gone,
          Now is wrong.
          Drop your whining and collect the mettle!

          Canít you hear?
          You are here,
          In the heat,
          In the shit,
          In the middle of the uphill battle!

          Canít you see?
          You canít flee!
          Feel the fright,
          Pick the fight,
          Itís too late and zero time for chatter!

          Youíre still strong,
          Youíre still wrong,
          Please get smart,
          Play your card,
          Well, unless it does no longer matter.
