The Misery's Hard To Take

The misery's hard to take,
keeps creeping up on me.
Every good choice feels like a mistake,
my head is like lead and my ribs are a rake,
every little shiver feels like an earthquake;
the misery's hard to take.

White whale!
Heart I stab at thee!
You'll not get the better of God or me!
Death to you and my misery!
