Gluttons For Punishment Or What?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 At times
When we’re truly awful
We thoroughly deserve what we end up with….
Absolutely nothing.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Sat head in hands in the stands
Trying to blank out all recollection of human error
And those costly mistakes
Which hurt and pain us personally like a slap in the face.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 We suffer
As one with the team,
Us fans whose despair
Knows no sullen depth to its torment.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Then one day during the course of a game
It all comes together
The Gods reach down to merely touch us and awe inspiring sights
Performed by our own flock of worshipped human beings
Make the hair on the back of our necks stand to attention.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Leaving the ground
After such an enlightening experience
One can’t help but wonder:
How come we can’t turn it on like that every week
How fulfilled our lives as fans would be?
And….. how boring
As the uncertainty of it all,
For a lot of us at least is the only….certainty.



Is this pretty deep stuff or what?
