about

I get very irritated by some people's relentless blue-sky thinking and blind optimism. It might make people feel better, but it fails to address and potentially solve the problem. Well meaning people can often be counter-productive when trying to "cheer up" people who are angry, depressed or worried.
Positive thinking will not actually change an outcome.
Careful examination of, and dealing with the problem just might.

At least pessimists are occasionally pleasantly surprised.

lyrics

The carpet under your feet feels soft
But it’s only hiding from view
The cold, hard concrete you fall on
When they pull the rug from under you.
And you’re left without a leg to stand on
Your naked arse exposed
That’s when a so-called friend
Will arrive to present you
With the Emperor’s new clothes.
They’ll tell you that
“It’s really not THAT bad”
They’ve been through it all before....
So get your hands off your cock!
Pull up your socks!
And don’t think like that any more!
But positive thinking won’t stop you sinking
If your boots are made of lead.
Hanging on to hope won’t help you cope –
I don’t care what Oprah said!
The carpet under your feet feels soft
But it’s only hiding from view
The cold hard concrete you fall on
When they pull the rug from under you...
