“…is like a puzzle. Can you solve ’em? Stress’ll drive you crazy tryin’ to deal with these problems. Problems, problems, how you gon’ solve ’em? Man, I’m going crazy trying to deal with these problems…”
I think it’s safe to say this is a pretty darn accurate lyric right here. Ole’ Rappin’ 4-Tay got it RIGHT.
(It’s okay if you’re not familiar with his work. The only reason I know this song is because it’s in the movie Dangerous Minds and I just happen to watch it every chance I get!)
Let’s look at this lyric line by line, shall we?
YES, each piece of life IS like a puzzle! Every. Tiny. Piece. It’s not even like you just dumped all the pieces of one ginormous puzzle out and have to figure out how to put it back together. There are like THIRTY puzzles all dumped out at the same time! You’ve got work, your friends, your family, your social life, your health, your home…AND THERE ISN’T EVEN A PICTURE ON THE BOX TO HELP YOU PUT ‘EM TOGETHER.
Um, maybe? I mean, sometimes you kinda get a tiny grasp on one but then the another one just completely poops the bed.
Yes! YES!! Stress WILL drive you crazy trying to deal with these problems. CA. RAZY. Stress. Stress should be a four-letter word. From now on, it should be stres. Well, except that looks stupid.
