Anxiety Lyrics:


Ain't too fond of coming of age

It's only brought on a bout of rage

& A bundle of defects deep in the brain

& Now fewer things are keeping me sane


I'm a good guy but I feel locked in a cage

A good night's sleep's so hard to attain lately

Anxiety's no game

It keeps me inside too much these days


& The Doctors;

Every one tells me the same

Take two of these, you'll be free from the pain

But nothing ever works to break this chain

Anticipate the worst & wait for the rain


That's life I'm afraid

Get some escape when I sleep for a day

But even then, all of my dreams are plagued 

Somebody please just take me away


When the nights bleed into a long old year or so

Head's caved in, now I guess I need a miracle

Lights low, dreaming of the old days when there was no panic eating me up like this


& It seems that the more you say

Then the more you stray

No-one wants to listen to your woes these days

And it grows; the forbidden subject goes grey

Don't stay hidden, know that it's okay not to be okay


I can see your eyes;

Full of pain battling a war inside

If at all you cry, that's brave

I know that it all comes out some days


Don't let it all start pulling you away

Out from the World

Into a grave

We all should talk

& Offload weight

It takes some balls

But don't be afraid


Don't be ashamed

It's taken me years to admit to the pain

I'm done time wasting and placing the blame

It starts right here: myself, I claim

I will always speak up if I need to again!


When the nights bleed into a long old year or so

Head's caved in, now I guess I need a miracle

Lights low, dreaming of the old days when there was no panic eating me up like this


When the nights bleed into a long old year or so

Head's caved in, now I guess I need a miracle

Lights low, dreaming of the old days when there was no panic eating me up like this


Gone & lost my faith in the lust of creating

That's when you realise the mountain you're facing

Things you enjoy start turning to chores

Downtime feels like a lifetime wasted


& I pray that I learn to embrace it

Turn gloom into glory & face it

Take little steps forward and pace it

Stop thinking it's weak to proclaim it


It's the same big battle that a lot face

Some fighting it and running in the top race

Please realise quick that you're not alone

You got time and it's time you should not waste


I know the help can be difficult to seek out

But there's only you that can peak out from behind the black veil that befell you

Realise that it's time you should reach out!


When the nights bleed into a long old year or so

Head's caved in, now I guess I need a miracle

Lights low, dreaming of the old days when there was no panic eating me up like this


When the nights bleed into a long old year or so

Head's caved in, now I guess I need a miracle

Lights low, dreaming of the old days when there was no panic eating me up like this


Guess we all want it all

Then there's some that just want a break

Some release from the day

When it seems it never ends

Just A Street Lad Lyrics:


It’s getting cold out here

Since you went and walked away

Apart from that it’s the same

Drinking and gossiping


Now keep your head up my girl

You could have all the world

You could do all the things

That I’m too chicken-shit to


Every time that I wait to see her

She must set with every sun

And I know they all want to be her

But to her it’s a bit of fun


Don’t rest on your laurels here girl

That’ll get you nowhere fast

I’m an example of that

I’m an example of that


When nobody’s getting younger

Well it’s time to make that move

And the things that are taking me under

The same things don’t affect you


And the goal that we set to be stronger

Well it’s near now, it’s in the air

Don’t care if you beat me there

Don’t care if you beat me there


But I’m just a Street lad, why would you want me

When you’ve made it clear you hate that?

(You say that you’re better)

Well I could have been someone

But with me there’s more said than done


And now I see your family sometimes

They always say “Alright”

I overheard them one night

(They said you’re doing better)

Well I could have been someone

But with me there’s more said than done


I’ll never get it right

I’ll never get it right


Remember the days I said

That we’ll come of age I guess

And we won’t be the same I bet

But I didn’t mean separate


& Let me see my old mates

Just like back in the days

We’ll reminisce on old things

Then turn up at yours a state


I’m a voice of a generation

You’re the Queen of a crumbled youth

And I know that your heart is racing

When you hear one of our old tunes


Do you think that we could have made things

Work out if we had the time?

Do you think we could do that now?

Do you think we could do that now?


But I’m just a Street lad, why would you want me

When you’ve made it clear you hate that?

(You say that you’re better)

Well I could have been someone

But with me there’s more said than done


And now I see your family sometimes

They always say “Alright”

I overheard them one night

(They said you’re doing better)

Well I could have been someone

But with me there’s more said than done


I’ll never get it right


& If we could’ve made more time

Do you think we could’ve made what we had work out?

Do you think we could’ve still been together now?

And I could’ve been someone?


And do you ever look back and smile?

Do you ever think that none of it was worth your while?

And are you listening to this now?

Do you think I could’ve been someone?


It’s getting cold out here

Since you went and walked away

Apart from that it’s the same

Drinking and gossiping

Drinking and gossiping


But I’m just a Street lad, why would you want me

When you’ve made it clear you hate that?

(You say that you’re better)

Well I could have been someone

But with me there’s more said than done


And now I see your family sometimes

They always say “Alright”

I overheard them one night

(They said you’re doing better)

Well I could have been someone

But with me there’s more said than done


I’ll never get it right

I’ll never get it right

I’ll never get it right

Shut My Eyes Lyrics:

                                          

Eyes fizz whilst I familiarise 

Woke up from a nightmare

& Now I dread to shut my eyes again

To shut my eyes again


Big change this morning when I woke

Looking at life through a brand new scope

Misapply time and we take it slow

But anything could happen and we just don't know


Time never waits for me or you

I've spent a lot of days in the funeral suit lately

I guess I better make these moves

Now I've gotta spend more time in the booth


& Now I wanna spend more time doing charity

Now I've gotta take some time for the family & friends

Doing all I can trying to cram it in

But every now & then you need time for your sanity


& I get so tired

Going round putting out all these fires 

I do think sometimes

Hope I'm satisfied when I shut my eyes


All my life, I’ve just been guessing

So I now ask;

‘Is there a legacy to be left when I do shut my eyes?’

When I do shut my…


I sit staring away to the lights

Along this horizon deep in the nights

Wondering what's gonna be my tomorrow

Praying that we have more time left to fight


Time left to appreciate this gift

The gift of the age we are given to exist

I spend so many nights worrying about us

A lot of things that we ain't ticked off the list


Hoping one day I'll provide for my own 

Hoping that it's always a happy home

Hope that we never experience the fear

The fear that's chewing this World to the bone


But when it's time, it's time

Something that we must accept in the mind

If I leave now, what will be left behind? 

Hope I'm satisfied when I shut my eyes


All my life, I’ve just been guessing

So I now ask;

‘Is there a legacy to be left when I do shut my eyes?’


When I do shut my eyes

When I do shut my eyes

When I do shut my eyes

When I do shut my eyes

When I do shut my…


Eyes get heavy when I'm squeezing hours

Out of each waking moment of ours

I wanna take each step now constructive 

I wanna feel previously unfelt powers 


I see time beating all of us

So I need to keep this dream on course 

I'd hate to have fought this all in vain 

So I'm only looking to open new doors


New doors that'll only promise good things

In the true form that even astonish us Kings

& The days get shorter, years go by

Suddenly you're whole mind's living on pins


You're in a race with time

& Time's overtook and left you behind

Whenever I leave this life

I hope I'm satisfied when I shut my eyes


All my life, I’ve just been guessing

So I now ask;

‘Is there a legacy to be left when I do shut my eyes?’

When I do shut my…

All my life, I’ve just been guessing

So I now ask;

‘Is there a legacy to be left when I do shut my eyes?’

When I do shut my eyes


When I do shut my eyes

When I do shut my eyes

When I do shut my eyes

When I do shut my…


Eyes fizz whilst I familiarise 

Woke up from a nightmare

& Now I dread to shut my eyes again

To shut my eyes again
