Note To Self 03:23
I’m rekindling old romance With sobriety Ending these relationships The burden weighs so heavily Please don’t blame yourself It’s definitely me. The fear, The dread, The crippling anxiety. It’ll be the death of me. It’s time to give it up, It’s been twenty-something years. Financially bankrupt, Emotionally overwhelmed. Maybe I’m chasing my tail Or running round in circles. Well, this isn’t the first time I’ve smashed my face into this wall. It’s safe to say If we did this everyday We’d kill ourselves along the way Forget it all. It’s safe to say If we did this everyday We’d miss our chance to get away And blow it all. I’ve screamed it all before Is this time just like last time? More broken promises I’m still picking up the pieces Please don’t blame yourself, It’s definitely me. The fear, The dread, The crippling anxiety It’s safe to say If we did this everyday We’d kill ourselves along the way Forget it all. It’s safe to say If we did this everyday We’d miss our chance to get away And blow it all.

It’s cold outside and it’s raining hellfire Can you see the fear in those eyes? Step back inside, enjoy your shelter Have you seen the mess out there? They’re all running scared Fuelled by failure Desperation’s taking hold We’re the only one’s who know This is not a joke. This is a broken-hearted desperate attempt To try and make some sense of a world So full of hate and misery Yet it’s all “me, me, me, me, me!” I swear my heart, it fucking bleeds When I’m alone. Step back in time Do you remember? We dared to dream back then Step back inside Enjoy your shelter Desperation’s taken hold We’re the only ones who know This is not a joke. This is a broken-hearted desperate attempt To try and make some sense of a world So full of hate and misery Yet it’s all “me, me, me, me, me!” I swear my heart, it fucking bleeds When I’m alone. This is a broken-hearted desperate attempt To try and make some sense of a world So full of hate and misery Yet it’s all “me, me, me, me, me!” I swear my heart, It fucking bleeds.

The Fear 04:17
Home can’t wait to have you here Pull up a chair I’ll explain the fear to you It’s when everything you think you know Disappears into a great black hole of hope We don’t always have to be right It’s okay to lose a fight It’s okay to say you’re scared Even the best can be under-prepared. Making plans to face our fears I’ve been playing this chord for almost fifteen years And I’ve still got hope I can’t let it float into a big black hole of doubt. We don’t always have to be right It’s okay to lose a fight It’s okay to say you’re scared Even the best can be under-prepared. If we lose the drive, we’re driving home I don’t know if there’s any place I can go “No place like home” Or is home just some place out on the road? We don’t always have to be right It’s okay to lose a fight It’s okay to say you’re scared Even the best can be under-prepared. If home can’t wait to have you’re here Pull up a chair, I’ll explain the fear to you It’s when every dream you’ve ever known Disappears into a big black hole of hope. We don’t always have to be right It’s okay to lose a fight It’s okay to say you’re scared Even the best can be under-prepared. We will drive forever We will drive forever Seems we’re never going home.

All the kids are burning down Their neighbours to the ground. Riots are prime time TV. The bricks and rocks and the petrol bombs Are how they get their point across, A point no-one can see. They feel they've been left behind, They feel like they just can't find Their place in "big society". Maybe it's the unemployment, The lack of chances, No role models, No shortage of experts telling me. Then who will you believe? United in name Got nothing to show. This Kingdom's fucked, Light the fuse and watch it blow. Lose lips sink ships, We're all going to drown. Bottoms up, c'est la vie, It's onwards and down. We need to start again Educate, engage our brains There's more to life than being alive. Next time it could be you Watching your neighbourhood Burn down before your fucking eyes. Then who will you despise? United in name Got nothing to show. This Kingdom's fucked, Light the fuse and watch it blow. Lose lips sink ships, We're all going to drown. Bottoms up, c'est la vie, It's onwards and down.

All along I knew The things that we'd go through But I never thought it'd come to this It took some time To find the time To finally show you how I feel But I feel it's too late The letter that I sent Was exactly what I meant I regret what I said but I'm not sorry If I'd known what I know now I'd have gotten away somehow But you're still far away from me If I'd known what i know now I'd have gotten away somehow But you're still far from where I wanna be The letter that I sent Was exactly what I meant I regret what I said but I'm not sorry. I’m not sorry now, no.
