You know the feeling. Been playing hero for weeks... or months... or <gasp> years! Tackled all the 'impossible' projects, and now they want you to do more (no one else is crazy enough to do it <irony>).
That's what ya get for being reliable - people rely on you !
Cindy tells me
by Brian Eno
Cindy tells me the rich girls are weeping
Cindy tells me they've given off sleeping alone
and now they're so confused by their new freedoms
and she tells me they're selling off their maisonettes
left the Hotpoints to rust in the kitchenettes
and they're saving their labor for insane reading
Some of them lose and some of them loose
But that's what they want and that's what they choose
It's a burden, such a burden
Oh what a burden to be so relied on
[1/2 instrumental verse]
Cindy tell me what will they do with their lives
living quietly like laborer's wives
Perhaps they'll reacquire those things they've all disposed of
Apart from being relied upon, you're always tried upon. Being 'heroic', what a sarcastic word for one who is doomed to fail in death in order to become 'hero', is not the goal. Being stone or harder still is the goal to achieve, to be sintered by total burn out. --CarstenKlein
Yet, you need to be fluid as water and hot as magma in order to overcome the burdens they lay upon you.
