Angst and its comrades
Haunt my dreams of night

Angst fills my world
Of reading and books

Angst knows what it likes
To pour out its delusions of me

Its comrades assist
In its work of scorn

Comrades of angst
Know everything

They tell you
You are worthless

These comrades have enemies
Of happiness and faith

Hope and life
Seem far gone in angst

Angst makes us feel
Unworthiness and strife

It bogs us down
Brings crimson tears to life

I'd rather my happiness
Joy and faith

For I'd rather live
Than succumb

To angst and its comrades
