yearning burning
churning learning

spit em out spit em out

take a dip in the mik
break the barier wita icepick

its what makes ya tick
its what makes ya tick

gotta outrun the draggon
in the rebb bb bb es waggon

cuz the king is in in the field
to the serpint i wont yeild

bouncing flouncing
bucketing traveling

away from the nest
of the pest
from the past

but his nest is with me
in my main box
it don't help ta put lox

cant runnaway
cant runnaway

gotta duck and swing
send him into the ropes
just like the dead popes
rotting in the cesspool
yeah
IN THE CESSPOOL
IN THE CESSPOOL
IN THE CESSPOOL!
UH!
UH!
Yeah cant runawaty from my destineee
from the draggon that ive raised inside of me
sometimes you need to duck
sometimes you need to crawl
sometimes you need to grit yo teeth
sometimes you need to bawl


but we'z inna battle
gotta stand high in the saddle
lower down yo visor
sharpen yo arr rows
oh yo arrrr rows
let em be straight
yeah!
protect them from the hate
watch wacth yo bow,
don lettit be stolen by the draggon
keep it with you in the waggon

till the day when the son of Rachel will return
to rejoin in the battle
singing the song of old
from the great man from rizin

Oh i just want that vision
to see the day when
we will slay then
the draggg gin
from inside me.

I had a thought,

The gemara in Sanhedrin says that the Torah is called "toshe'ah" for it is "mateshes kocho shel adam"

The name Torah comes beause it shows us the way that Hashem wants us to follow. That is the way we are supposed to sit down to learn, "I am now going to let go of my plans for life, and see what Hashem wants me to do". If a person does that then automatically the plans that a person made for himself which are "kocho shel adam" are deminished, and he can see what life Hashem wants.

First of all, any label that is given to the Torah must be good.

Second, Rashi puts it together with "machna'as leebam" I would have to say that is good, not necessarily comfortable, but certainly good.
