Pavlovian responses to a wicked world
  Duck and cover, bob and weave
Run and hide, call for mom
  Flinching reactions to a bully world


If the world hands you lemons
  You just make lemonade
Is there a bull’s eye on my back?
  What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger


Behind every cloud there is a silver lining
  If it weren’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all
Life can’t all be ice cream and cherries
  Look on the bright side of life


Some people see the glass half empty
  Others see the glass as half full
All I want to know is....
  Who keeps drinking my soda?!?
