With Me It Goes Deeper

When the going gets rough
Some people wonder
Whether to weep or 
Matter-of-factly 
Laugh the thing off
But I know exactly
With me it goes deeper

I just crumple up
Fold and go under
Hearing the reaper
Shuffling onward 
To level the crop 
That's ripening sunward
With me it goes deeper

When the going gets fair
Some people dither
Whether to leap or 
Shyly and nicely 
Offer a prayer
But I know precisely
With me it goes deeper

Overjoyed or forlorn
One way or another
I can't seem to keep a
Sense of proportion
Dance until dawn
Or drink to extinction
With me it goes deeper
With me it goes deeper
