I wish I could join the ones who are happy
with material goods and easy comforts
but I was born with saturn on my back
and I see things hard and I see things rough
I wish I didn't know all I know
perhaps then I could pretend life is a grand adventure
but I set forth on a different track
one these happy callous droids will find themselves on
at some point in their journey...
in that I do not envy them
all happiness will come to pass
and if you are not overly attached to such trivialities
perhaps then all will learn our common root
the joys and terrors that shape us and make us human...
