"I feel infinite"

I know sometimes things feel like s***
And there's no escaping it, but
If I believe that there's a way
I can make it another day.
When things get tough and I'm weighed down
Look around, see a ghost town
From the emotions we once felt.
We play the hand that we're dealt.
Life's not easy, and life's not fair.
That's what they say, but I don't care.
It's a stand off, like in the cowboy flicks
Orpheus verses the river styx.
In the end, neither can win - the gunshot or the myth, make your bid
Miss the shot or get stuck with Hades - are you glad for what you did?
It's a stand off - Logic verses Emotion and I don't know the odds.
Like deciding between fighting the cowboys or the greek god.
I guess in the end, the only way
To make it through another day
Is to dream of one day, live out today, learn from yesterday... and move on.
Those days are gone.
Reaction beats first action so just walk away before the draw.
And if you try to always be the hero, well that may be your fatal flaw.
Life's not easy and Life's not fair.
I don't care, at least Life's there.
To breath, to love, to live and learn
To have friends that will return.
So although sometimes things feel like s***...
I know I can escape it.
