In our stressful techno-world, burn-out is a psycho-mental 'place' on the increase. Guess most of us have been there, or will be at some time. Singing it out is one of the healthier ways to express it. So here's our offering in that interest. Somehow, this suggests to me a Jimmy Buffet beat.

BURN-OUT

Baby, now it's here ! Never thought I'd find
this emptiness of heart - this weariness of mind.
All the things I wanted - all the things I've done,
seem like one big zero, and no place feels like home.
Chorus
Where do you go from burn-out ?
What is there to say ?
How do you find a meaning,
to get you through the day ?
Where do you go from burn-out ?
Has the rocket gone astray ?
Are you just a burned-out shell,
empty and falling away -
when all you had to give,
is out there on its way ?
One thing good about burn-out -
even that's not here to stay !

I think about tomorrow. I think of yesterday.
Neither seem to matter - same thing every day,
like looking from a tower, locked in castle walls,
where a lifetime full of voices echoes through the halls.
Chorus
Where do you go from burn-out ?
What is there to say ?
How do you find a meaning,
to get you through the day ?
Where do you go from burn-out ?
Has the rocket gone astray ?
Are you just a burned-out shell,
empty and falling away -
when all you had to give,
is out there on its way ?
One thing good about burn-out -
even that's not here to stay !
