“Harsh Reality”

(Reynold D. Philipsek)

When you really stop and think about it
this is a pretty scary place,
You are dropped into existence from some unknown outer space
And slapped into animation
(That’ll put a smile upon your face)
Yes, it’s a harsh, harsh place

So you scramble to get the gist of it and learn the vague unwritten rules
and negotiate the distance between the “real threats” and “utter fools”
and beat back the persistence of the phantoms, ghosts, and ghouls
Yes, it’s a harsh, harsh place
