if lookin out over your own front yard leaves you feelin cold and grey if your not happy in your own hallway what makes you think, you'l be happy on holiday? and everything thats new is leavin you blue, just like the old stuff used to do.. flickin the switch to engage your brain on, but only when you absolutlyl have to... and every time you think your loosing your mind, turns out it could be tru why dont you get all of your ducks in line, before you start tellin everyone else what to do because: everybody knows what every oneelse should be doin thats the funny thing about being a human five days on, two days off, you cant buy back allthe time you'v lossssssst ask your boss, for the time youve lost, bite the hand thats feeding you right off... and everything you do youve done before man, you do the same shit every day ya secretly hate being diplomatic but your payed so ya do it anyway. ya take a punt on the instant kiwi, pin your hopes on big wednesday so now ya traffic every single morning, savin up for that midwinters getawa. everybody knows whateverone else should be doin' thats the funny thing about being a human, five days on, two days off, you cant buy back all the time youve lost. when there's a glass half full of water, and half atmosphere in order to enjoy it, they both have to be there, and its alright to be paranoid,when it turns out to be true is that god working in mysterious ways? or is it YOU. if your not happy in your own hallway, well what makes you think you'l be happy on holiday, now that everything you own owns you, well it DONT look like you'l get to go anywhere...

i was laughing with them, but they were laughing at me, it was a good good laugh, it went round half of the party... and all we needed was a lesson in dignity. sometimes getting a head start just means that you peak too early so is this just us for tonight, or will this be a whole life story if you look back now you might find that is been quite blank and distorted i was laughing with them, but they were laughing at me, it was a good good laugh, it went round half of the party... we've had enough to feed the whole, hungry army i know what you THINK you look like, when your drunk and dancing and now we're part of the lock in crew, allways the last to be leaving sneezing out pink, white, red, green, and blue on our sleeves for the next three mornings. you were the life of the party... and thats why we love you, you were the life of t he party... you motherfucker... yes you are.
