Track Name: Everything Is Great
Everything is great and I'm happy to be alive,
I've got every little thing I need and nothing to hide,
There's no reason I would be in any sort of plight,

Everything is great and wonderful and fine,
And I guess that means that I'm alright,
Everything's swell, incredible and prime,
So, of course, that means I feel sublime,

Everything is great and I'm happy to be alive,
I'm a normal human being and this cannot be denied,

'Though you ask the question you don't want a true reply,
Besides, I can't articulate the what, the when, the why,

When the sky is clear and sun is shining its most bright,
The shadows appear darkest and they seep into my mind,

Everything is great and wonderful and fine,
And I guess that means that I'm alright,
Everything's swell, incredible and prime,
So, of course, that means I feel sublime,

Everything is great and wonderful and fine,
And I guess that means that I'm alright,
Everything's swell, incredible and prime,
So, of course, that means I feel sublime
Track Name: War Within
So here I go into combat,
As per normal it's me against me my mind,

I can't breach through walls of siege to,
Free my poor mind,

I can't stop thinking about what could've been,
I just keep fighting the war within,
I lay awake in the dead of night,
I can't help feeling I've wrecked my life,
Thought I was in control, thought I was winning,
But all it takes is a minor strife,
And I'm left thinking I've wrecked my life,

I never know when you'll attack,
Every battle takes me by surprise,

I can't beat you or defeat you
But still I try, still I try, still I try,

I can't stop thinking about what could've been,
I just keep fighting the war within,
I lay awake in the dead of night,
I can't help feeling I've wrecked my life,
Thought I was in control, thought I was winning,
But all it takes is a minor strife,
And I'm left thinking I've wrecked my life,

I can't stop thinking about what could've been,
I just keep fighting the war within,
I lay awake in the dead of night,
I can't help feeling I've wrecked my life,
Thought I was in control, thought I was winning,
Fought like I had resolve, fought like I could win,
I can't stop thinking about what could've been,
I just keep fighting the war within,
I lay awake in the dead of night,
I can't help feeling I've wrecked, I've wrecked, I've wrecked my life
Track Name: Cuckoo
You've gone insane, right over the edge,
You're so fixated on your revenge,
So come back in away from the ledge,

You're not yourself,
Let me help,
You're not well,
You've gone...

Cuckoo, Cuckoo
You're crazy, crazy, crazy, you're out of mind

Cuckoo, Cuckoo,
You're bonkers, mental, loony, you're not thinking right,

Cuckoo, Cuckoo,
I joke around but I am worried about you,

Cuckoo, Cuckoo,
I wanna talk about the elephant that's sitting in the room

It breaks my heart to see you this way,
I can't imagine the anguish you face,
Your head has gone to a dark place,

You're not yourself,
Let me help,
You're not well,
You've gone...

Cuckoo, Cuckoo
You're crazy, crazy, crazy, you're out of mind

Cuckoo, Cuckoo,
You're bonkers, mental, loony, you're not thinking right,

Cuckoo, Cuckoo,
I joke around but I am worried about you,

Cuckoo, Cuckoo,
I wanna talk about the elephant that's sitting in the room

Cuckoo, Cuckoo
You're crazy, crazy, crazy, you're out of mind

Cuckoo, Cuckoo,
You're bonkers, mental, loony, you're not thinking right,

Cuckoo, Cuckoo,
I joke around but I am worried about you,

Cuckoo, Cuckoo,
I wanna talk about the elephant that's sitting in the room
Track Name: Talk Me Down
Fault is now assigned,
Me, myself, my mind,

How can you think that this is right?
Hiding everything; mislead; misguide,

You think dominance is your right,
Losing common sense in your stride,

How can I fight what I can't see?
Suddenly you look just like me,

Assuming, condescending in tone,
Oozing arrogance in its droves,

How did I let you talk me round?
Why do I let you grind me down?
One little remark, and I'm back at the start,
How did I let you talk me down?

Sold and certified,
Have the certainty to pick a side,

Choosing only you will decide,
Viewing just what could've been mine,

How did I let you talk me round?
Why do I let you grind me down?
One little remark, and I'm back at the start,
How did I let you talk me down?

How did I let you talk me round?
Why do I let you grind me down?
One little remark, and I'm back at the start,
How did I let you talk me down?

How did I let you talk me round?
Why do I let you grind me down?
One little remark, and I'm back at the start,
How did I let you talk me down?
Track Name: Clockwork
Flick switch to turn a light on,
Is this a new horizon?
Now take your medication,
Fulfil your obligation,

Round and round,

Stick in your formation,
Respect subordination,
Embrace your domination,
Expect abomination,

On repeat,
Wheels in wheels,

Cogs spin,
Stay in,
Your own box,

Priming,
Therein,
Ticking clocks,

We need revolution,
'Cause we're all just turning cogs,
We don't want solutions,
'Cause we're content with what we've got,

Look for a bigger picture,
Realise you're just a fixture,
Reject this complication,
Re-set your ideation,

Round and round,

Tock ,tick, anticipation,
Got this through desperation,
Waiting for liberation,
Craving emancipation,

On repeat,
Wheels in wheels,

Cogs spin,
Stay in,
Your own box,

Priming,
Therein,
Ticking clocks,

We need revolution,
'Cause we're all just turning cogs,
We don't want solutions,
'Cause we're content with what we've got,

We need revolution,
'Cause we're all just turning cogs,
We don't want solutions,
'Cause we're content with what we've got
Track Name: Resigned
This conversation is an odd indication of the end of the line,
All the frustration forms a strong limitation on the state of a mind,

Choose something to take, refuse to subdue,

Heaps of repression,
Help to allay depression,
Avoid the question,
In your quest for perfection,

Create a commotion,
Just to find an emotion,
Set it in motion,
Like a drop in the ocean,

Face right into life, appraise what you do,

Scream, 'cause there's nobody listening,
Breathe, 'cause you're good at existing,
Feel, like there's more than subsisting,
Yield, 'cause you're tired of resisting,

Exasperation is the truest taxation on the typical life,
Stick to your station, and avoid deviation; it's your will to comply,

Face right into life, appraise what you do,

Scream, 'cause there's nobody listening,
Breathe, 'cause you're good at existing,
Feel, like there's more than subsisting,
Yield, 'cause you're tired of resisting,

Scream, 'cause there's nobody listening,
Breathe, 'cause you're good at existing,
Feel, like there's more than subsisting,
Yield, 'cause you're tired of resisting
Track Name: Can't See The Sunrise
1, 2, 3, I'm falling like I did before,
Deep down, I'm counting on a new succour,
To pull me from this hole that I've forged,

No I don't think, There's going to be a bright side.
Feeling nothing, I can't pretend it's alright,

4, 5, 6, the sum is always negative,
Adverse; an archetypal pessimist,
The naysaying is formulaic,

Self-pitying, helpless by disposition,
Won't float; can't swim, drowning by my volition,

I can't see the sunrise,
I won't open my eyes,
Blinkered in my mind,
Look for what I find,
All silver linings,
They come with grey skies,
I can't see the sunrise,
I won't open my eyes,

1, 2, 3, The bad things always come in threes,
Oh please, Take a look at my tallies,
I'm calculating my own misery,

No I don't think, There's going to be a bright side,
Abject feeling, I can't believe in the light,

4, 5, 6, converted by my own cynics,
Spiteful; wannabe misanthropist,
Becoming skeptically skeptic,

Self-pitying, helpless by disposition,
Won't float; can't swim, drowning by my volition,

I can't see the sunrise,
I won't open my eyes,
Blinkered in my mind,
Look for what I find,
All silver linings,
They come with grey skies,
I can't see the sunrise,
I won't open my eyes,

I can't see the sunrise,
I won't open my eyes,
Blinkered in my mind,
Look for what I find,
All silver linings,
They come with grey skies,
I can't see the sunrise,
I won't open my eyes,

I can't see the sunrise,
I won't open my eyes,
Blinkered in my mind,
Look for what I find,
All silver linings,
They come with grey skies,
I can't see the sunrise,
I won't open my eyes
Track Name: Still Singing
Oh man, You've got me doubting, you've got me doubting my mind,
I can't stand the thought of living, the thought of living a lie,
I had plans for revolution, but resolution's awry,
I back down, before I'm losing, before I'm losing my mind, Why?!

Waking up to see that all I fear manifests itself right now, right here,
Facing up to what's abundantly clear, And hearing words I don't want to hear,
Straighten up and take a look at yourself, Delusions grow and egos swell,
Make the cut or make something else, Perspective shapes your view of wealth,

I'm still singing, I'm still thinking of a better day,
I'm still striving, I'm still fighting for a better way,

God damn, This interfering is overtaking my mind,
I'm one man, An individual, why can't you let me decide?
I still can believe I'm steering in a direction that's right,
Why crash land when I'm still soaring? I'm still flying and high,

There'll come a time when you will realise, The mess you've made of your own life,
Conclude in this case it does not apply, Convince yourself that it's a just a lie,

I'm still singing, I'm still thinking of a better day,
I'm still striving, I'm still fighting for a better way,
I'm not listening, still resisting this reality,
Keep on riffing, keep on wishing, for the change I seek,

I'm still singing, I'm still thinking of a better day,
I'm still striving, I'm still fighting for a better way,
I'm not listening, still resisting this reality,
Keep on riffing, keep on wishing, for the change I seek
Track Name: The Story Goes
The story starts where temptation leads,
To forge this path one must make believe,
To pull the stone from off the sword,
The selfish man fights the noble cause,

Let’s tear it up and start again,
Don’t care for how, just tell me when,
Don’t need it now, didn’t need it then,
This can't be how the story ends,

The story grows from forsaken seeds,
The more he knows the more misplaced the deeds,
Can’t fight a war with just yourself,
So slowly these malignant thoughts will swell,

Let’s tear it up and start again,
Don’t care for how, just tell me when,
Don’t need it now, didn’t need it then,
This can't be how the story ends,

Let’s tear it up and start again,
Don’t care for how, just tell me when,
Don’t need it now, didn’t need it then,
This can't be how the story ends
Track Name: Go For Broke
Take a, take a chance, take a chance on all in,
Play the, play the hand, play the hand you got given,
Be the, be the man, be the man who dares wins,
Take the risk,

When there's a call to make, I try my best to contemplate but I always seem to speculate, I'm insatiable, Go for broke,

I'm blinded by my optimism overruling any wisdom I make every decision a gamble,
So gung-ho,

I'm a loser, I'm a mug,
Gambler,
Take a dance with lady luck,
Strangle her,

Take the, take the bet, take the bet I'm all in,
Everything is set it's all or nothing,
Stupid to regret; what, could've could've been,
Stake on this,

Impetuous and rash, I stick my neck out in a flash, I'm never put off by the catch, I always take the punt, Impulsive,

I'm reckless to the core, I draw a lot, I pick a straw, But it just leaves me needing me more,
I'm always in the hunt, Win to live,

I'm a loser, I'm a mug,
Gambler,
Take a dance with lady luck,
Strangle her,
Never know enough's enough,
Will wager,
Always choose to take the plunge,
Thrill-seeker,

I'm a loser, I'm a mug,
Gambler,
Take a dance with lady luck,
Strangle her,
Never know enough's enough,
Will wager,
Always choose to take the plunge,
Thrill-seeker
