"Chasin' da' Sun...!"

Like a bug on the inside of a window...I'll keep Chasin' da' Sun...

Can't make it through the clear barrier in my way...I end up on my back dead...when done!

Everytime I look and see...

That Sun still lies ahead of me!

I believe somehow I can make it through the thick glass...

I even use my rear hind legs to help push as hard as I can on my _ss!

Yet...I continue to mush my face...

Into this clear thing that has me stuck in place!

And if the window should indeed...at last...finally open...

I'd find a way to get stuck right back against the window...again!

Chasing the bright sunlight...and shooting for the stars...

The time I spent wasted on this Earth...I might as well've been living on Mars!

Each day...I spend trying to get through this barrier...'Til I get weaker and weaker...

Each day...a little of my life ebbs away...and getting through to the other side....looks bleaker and bleaker!

Hungry and weak...I get up once more to spend the day pushing at what holds me back...

Weariness comes with the night...I will make it through tomorrow...I think I have the knack!

My whole body is telling me it is time to call it quits...

It hurts from ramming into the clear barrier...in so many fits!

And so with a sigh...Come morning...I fly once more to break through the window pane...

"Smack"...My barrier has returned again...Whatever it is that stops me...is making me insane!

Here I go again...Determination will eventually prevail...

"Bang"...I hit my face again...The reality is...I think that ultimately...I will fail!

I curse and scream...But no one is nearby...or buzzing around that I can hear...

I fall back on the window sill...My time on this Earth...is drawing to a close...I fear!

With one thin breath left within me...I shout out: "Oh Please, Can someone help!"

A big human's finger shows up...Squishes my head in...I let out a "AAGH" with my final yelp!

Suddenly...the Sun is all around...and me...I am renewed once more to fly in Open Air...

I am free as the breeze itself...I have no more pain...There's no more defeat...or even a care!

I had met my barrier face-to-face...and in the end...I must say...it eventually won...

There was no way I could've made it back there...Look at me now...Free From Chasin' Da' Sun!
