34 02:22
Watch the clock Slip unnoticed Out the back door to the pale Hopes and fears Self-reflection Tireless Not self-aware What an idea set for life Habits die hard just to make it out alive Dark again Saving daylight For a spring six months away Life burned out Got sucked from the inside Now invested all the way Dreams about that easy life They all waste away And drift slowly out of sight Led to believe there’s a place in the sun Seen better days Then so has everyone All I know is I’ve never felt so old Sense never made sense less When we learn what’s for us Will go by us in the end
2.
Crutch 02:10
My inhibition relinquished direction My inner tyrant’s got no restraint So let it go You can never get enough You know you can always lean on The same old tried and tested crutch My firmware must have skipped the last few updates My intuition’s not responding So it goes Maybe it’s some kind of curse? The only thing that makes it better Is the same thing that makes it worse So fuck it all You can never have too much You know you can always lean on The same old tried and tested crutch I’m running out of excuses Just fucking useless
3.
Tank 01:43
Nothing in the tank No hours in the day to fill up In dire need of a hard reset Ich bin ein beginner Try to make it out alive I swear that we’ll make it out alive Closed in with no oxygen Healthy dreams tonight Now I’m stressed out my box again I’m done with this shite Waking up and out of life So tired Trying to make it out alive Nothing in the tank I’m walking No need to fill up Sunshine on the Green Some cans Now we’re living it up Making up for all the time we lost Trying to make it out alive
4.
Hollowed Out 02:34
Thought I had time on my side I don't have time to think any more I’m nearing my own half-life I’m knackered all the time And my gut’s getting too big to ignore I’m always agitated I’m a living specimen of bad health My body’s desecrated Hangovers last for days Trapped in existential hell Why can’t I just say no? I guess I just can’t help myself I’m feeling hollowed out And metamorphosing into all the things I hate And either giving up or cutting back on things I don’t And maybe now it’s time to stop accepting side quests And move on in my life My stats are all too low And now it’s too late to reroll I’ve fallen off the map I dropped my moral compass and walked around in circles Good intentions turned to bad habits along the way So hang me out to dry Put me out to pasture Because there’s no curing me And there’s no going back to my sauce and salad days
5.
Decapitator 02:20
I’m on another world I found another place I lost my head and disappeared without a trace I finally opted out I left it all behind I’m on a mission to obliterate my mind On a mission to obliterate my mind But something’s out of phase My phaser’s set to null My eyes are double glazed and rotting out my skull Black circles line my face My skin a deathly grey I want to get out but I cannot run away Over-encumbered and I cannot run away So hit the switch increase the pressure on my head No resistance no escape My thoughts compressed Condensed and regurgitated There’s nothing left to decimate Don’t innovate Decapitate I’m on another world I found another place A solo voyage into deepest outer space I finally opted out I left it all behind I’m on a mission to obliterate my mind On a mission to obliterate my mind
6.
Wait 01:59
Out of empathy Out of pleasantries For all the things I’ve done for you All the shit you gave to me I’ll wait Negativity and incivility Reduced to less than I’m used to now But it’s still too much for me I’ll wait All the fights The wasted nights And friendships damaged beyond repair Didn’t seem to faze you I’ll leave you with another tired trope Regret what you did Not what you didn’t do I’ll wait Out of empathy Out of pleasantries For all the lies and the bad advice I’ll give you this for free Don’t wait
7.
Ducks 00:45
I know there’s a time and a place for Audit processes and all that other shit you like Responsibilities and all that other good stuff You’re upwardly mobile but crippled with The insecurity of living a lie Good luck to you and all your stupid fucking clichés Because all the money in the world Still wouldn’t be enough to make me stay Ducks in a row And devils in the details There’s more than one way to shut the fuck up I’ll be an empty boat A million miles away from your illusion of control
8.
Alive 01:27
These are not the ideals you’re looking for They don’t come around much any more Never mind Door’s locked Doesn’t open from this side Don’t thrive We just get by Or left behind Now don’t you feel alive at all? So what do you do when there’s nothing you can do? When you’ve got no morals to lose? Well that one’s easy Lead by example Fuck everyone else God bless subservience It’s all just excess Now don’t you feel alive at all?
9.
Time 01:37
Disaffected by design But I could invert this decline If I only had the time Another toke over the line Another vice I’d leave behind If I only had the time To deal with mine All the years I’ve tried To keep my life in order Swim against the tide But I’m just treading water The ground just opened up Revealed a twelve-year rut Chewed up and spat me out And then snapped shut Disengaged and unassigned I’d find way out of this bind If I only had the time And what’s the consolation prize? A lust for someone else’s life Some life we can’t define But I’d deal with mine If I just had the time
10.
Falling In (free) 01:59
Someday we’ve got to get up Get our arse in gear Say our goodbyes and get away Don’t wait You know that nothing we could lose Really matters that much anyway Don’t need it Not going to miss it Don’t have to take it Some day we’ve got to stop thinking And start living Let’s get out before it’s too late Don’t wait You know that life can have a nasty habit Of getting in the way Don’t need it Not going to miss it Don’t have to take it We’ve fallen in once again
11.
Piss It Away (free) 00:31
Try not to piss it all away You’re only getting older
12.
Not The Life (free) 03:10
Half awake A world away Still half cut half the time Nothing left of the exceptions Why not just resign? You get stuck in There’s comfort in a routine But when you’re locked in You realise what might have been Old enough to know the rules But not too old to care Still with half a soul to lose And blissfully aware You get tired The goalposts shifted again When you’re burned out And all too late you tell yourself That this is not the life That I had in mind And I can’t bide my time any more It's not the life
