 Climb the highest mountain, punch the face of god

Game face for facing life

I sashay into any room with the air of angered appearance.
I don't have reason for looking this upset,
This is my game face, dammit, my game face for facing life.
You have to have one, it makes you either respectable, or soft.
I'm both because sometimes, ya just gotta smile.
I gotta smile. I have to smile despite being appalled by
All the people who have done disdainful things.
Everyone should smile, take a deep breath, and exhale.
Loosen up and play this game of life
Before you ruin it with your head of worries.
There's no need to be so empty, so hollow.
I know you are troubled but the obstacles get easier
As you let your sanity slip through your timid fingers.
So I will sashay into any room, wreaking heavily of perfume,
Looking devious yet mean yet fun and jovial.
I've got my game face on for this game of life
And I don't intend on losing, dammit.
