Malaise



Maybe you're stunned in a daze

Maybe you're fogged in a haze

Maybe you're lost in a maze

It looks like a malaise

Maybe you're burned in a blaze

Maybe you're fixed in a gaze

Maybe you're set in a ways

It looks like a malaise

Maybe you're caught in a craze

Maybe you're still in a phase

Maybe you're just in a laze

It looks like a malaise
