“Why, no one will help me, I’m too dumb, I’m too smart,
They’ll not understand me, I’m lonely, they’ll hate me
There’s not enough time, it’s too hard to help me
God wants me to work, no resting, no lazy
These excuses, how they’ve served me so well
They’ve kept me safe, they’ve kept me stuck
They’ve kept me locked in my own cell…
These excuses, how they’re so familiar
They’ve kept me blocked, they’ve kept me small
They’ve kept me safe inside my shell
Bringing these into the Light shakes their foundation and clears my sight,
Now, my imagination is the only thing that limits the bar and its rise to the heights.”
Alanis Morissette, in the song “Excuses”, from the CD “So Called Chaos”
