I can’t get, can’t get no motivation Good morning dear, how can I help you? Repeat, repeat, repeat and action The ties too tight, constant distraction Let’s talk big plans, let’s talk the future Let make these plans something that we can work for Broken down eight hours a day Where is the time for celebration? Repeat, repeat, repeat no action It’s getting late, bring on the next one Let’s talk big plans, let’s talk the future Let make these plans something that we can work for We used to talk ourselves to sleep at night Why can’t we, why can’t we now? Let’s talk big plans, let’s talk the future Let make these plans something that we can work for

Sitting with a pen in my hand Ink is spilt from the chewed off lid top A bitter taste is seeping in Tongues are dyed not tied Words don’t form a sentence One down, two down I know, let’s talk small, let’s drink, let’s forget Saturday’s best, Sunday’s worst Thinking moves but who walks first? Eyes connect, but where is the trust? From day to day, what needs must? Saturday’s best, Sunday’s worst Knocked down on the floor Get yourself back up again I’ve got a half filled glass, so I’m thinking positive thoughts The liquid falls with a sour sting I smile, you smile, you think, I sing Three down, four down I know, let’s talk small, let’s drink, let’s forget Saturday’s best, Sunday’s worst Knocked down on the floor Get yourself back up again

Repent, the end is fucking nigh What was the last song that took you by surprise? Hit for six, three minutes of pure bliss Time you don’t mind giving up Repent, the end is fucking nigh Saturation, the clones are on the station Souls are sold for pennies at a time A quick fix, no tricks, it all fits Wasting my day Inspiration at hand, not easily found Crowds have gathered, the eyes are on the show Performance begins Sit back, take heed, and put your ear to the street Sit back; take heed, woah oh oh! Take me away You try to set the world on fire Three chords at a time The backs are turned, the eyes are closed And nobody knows Sit back, take heed, and put your ear to the street Sit back; take heed, woah oh oh! Take me away All hopes and dreams held in one hand Dropped to the floor without a care All hopes and dreams held in one hand Dropped to the floor and no one cares Inspiration at hand, not easily found Crowds have gathered, the eyes are on the show Performance begins Sit back, take heed, and put your ear to the street Sit back; take heed, woah oh oh! Take me away

Jaws V 02:45
Well versed, well rehearsed There’s only so much we can give An industry crumbling to its knees Five years in the breaking of Something that had full respect Ripped apart by your neglect Steal from the poor and keep for yourself How can you kick what you love? You’re beating us down Poke a shark in the eye, you’ll get swallowed whole Last breath, last purpose There’s no escape into the arts I spend my day behind a desk When all I should be doing is getting paid To do something that satisfies It’s getting harder the more we try The streets are quiet, no ones around The life support is breaking down

With a friend like that, who needs an enemy? A cliché maybe, let’s not stop anyway A second face appears, it’s time for the fight One drink away from total failure You played the game today Making the getaway There is a place to stay (One more drink away) You’ll lose eventually (One more drink away) The train to your next stop is starting to leave And the map you planned out is getting hard to read What do you do now the flask has run dry? No help from me, I’ll let you pass by You played the game today Making the getaway There is a place to stay (One more drink away) You’ll lose eventually (One more drink away) Someone you rely on to have a good time Broken all trust and hiding no shame Where do you go next? Where do you try your luck?

You feel that strength in numbers Is the key to a victory? Surely we must take that with a hint of hypocrisy Our opinions not backed up We can’t say a word Hands tied behind backs You won’t make us crack And I’m falling down Too many stories all merging into one Our hopes, our dreams, our loves, our losses Moments just begun A new mask, won’t hide your scar A fake god won’t wash the blood from your hands My reflection in the mirror is censored by a hand I try to spit out the words, buy gagged by my former plan Given up trying You’re beating me down Sand in my eyes All feelings are numb And I’m falling down Too many stories all merging into one Our hopes, our dreams, our loves, our losses Moments just begun A new mask, won’t hide your scar A fake god won’t wash the blood from your hands Product placement is the key Point your finger, you will see Too many stories all merging into one Our hopes, our dreams, our loves, our losses Moments just begun A new mask, won’t hide your scar A fake god won’t wash the blood from your hands

Verse 1 The clock ticks, it's time to make a change. Growing apart, we've become estranged. Quick living will break you down. Forgiving can break you out. It's time for a new direction. Year after year it's been time to go. A moral dilemna, who will let them know? Quick living will break you down. Forgiving can break you out. Break me out. Bridge To make the best of me, I know I'll make it worse for you. Followed by a feeling of abandonment, so cold, for you. Chorus And do you think I'm satisfied? Oh no. Looking forward for the first time so you'll know. There will be no compromise, tomorrow is the beginning to my end. Beginning to my end. Verse 2 This time we landed on our feet, our crime won't admit defeat. Together we'll bring them round. Forever is out of bounds. I can't justify my actions. Set the mark so high, I can't say goodbye. Together we'll bring them round. Forever is out of bounds. Out of bounds. Heavy Chorus Whoooaaahhh whooaahhh whoooaahhh!! Last chorus And do you think I'm satisfied? Oh no. Looking forward for the first time so you'll know. There will be no compromise, I'm treading water.

Growing old, alone Getting colder, sitting on the bus and staring out the window Four more years to go until I’m out of here, I’ll see it, believe me I want to be something that I cannot be Wondering what I could’ve achieved with a little bit more forward planning The clock ticks on while I stand still lingering Catching up, again Friends of yesterday, looking in the mirror thinking of whatever Sharing tales of past success, triumph, distaste, disgrace I want to be something that I cannot be Wondering what I could’ve achieved with a little bit more forward planning The clock ticks on while I stand still lingering
