The Begin Button

I close my eyes and slowly breath in
And say "Wake me up when I'm awake again."
When I'm done giving up and I'm done giving in
I'll push the red button labeled "begin."

Although it's not quite as red
As the clergyman said
The batteries dead
And the parts not included

When running on reruns
(Because people are lazy)
Then pushing red buttons
Isn't actually that easy

Said some total jerk
That life isn't tough
And I could get it to work
If I push it enough

Have you ever fought?
Have you been in the grime?
Do you think life can be bought
For $1.99?

I've come to the conclusion
That there is pushing involved
But the big red button
Is not, I've resolved.
