Black dark and dreary

Unable to rest there

You went away weary

-

Your life's a bit bleary

Conscience is rare

Black dark and dreary

-

Cold dank and leery

The world isn't fair

You went away weary

-

These conditions aren't cheery

Caught in a fatal snare

Black dark and dreary

-

Struggling and teary

Starving for prayer

You went away weary

-

Your composure is eerie

Oppression leads to despair

Black dark and dreary

You went away weary
