Just Take It Easy, I’m Here To Help

Just take it easy, I’m here to help
Your eyes gifting sight, I’ll carve those out
Your cries go hoarse, and soon sound dim

Your feet that trekked, and took you far
From womb to grave, I’ll chop those off
Just take it easy, I’m here to help

And then your hands, that built that house
Through constant work, I’ll grind them down
Your pointless screams, will soon go hoarse

For that brave heart, which saw you through
Times that wore, I’ll dig that out
Just take it easy, I’m here to help

That brain of yours, that figured out
The best way forward, I’ll dice that up
Your shouts and pleas, will soon sound dim

There’s no other way, for you to ascend
Your voice now hoarse, will soon sound dim
Just take it easy, I’m here to help
