Track Name: New Day
I’m alright
Just need a minute
Ad nauseum
Often infinite
Maybe I’m not
Time to admit it
And face up
To my limits

To win it
Got to be in it
To lose it
Is to excuse it
Some abuse it
And overuse it
And they wonder
Why its disputed

When I wanna be alone
Feeling like I don’t belong
Charity begins at home
But not when my thin skin is showing
When I’m with you

'Cause when a new day
Brings you closer to the old ways
Then it’s time for you to say
It doesn’t really matter anyway

I know that
You feel dejected
I’m insular
You can’t accept it
I think that
It’s pathetic
That you think you’re
Being rejected

You’re there for me
When I need it
Through brain bleeds
At my weakest
It’s in this
That I thank you
And together
We can beat it

The weak will barely survive
Judged by unknowing eyes
Born to struggle and strive
And reach for the attainable prize
Without a clue

'Cause when a new day
Brings you closer to the old ways
Then it’s time for you to say
It doesn’t really matter anyway
And when a bad time
Brings you into an old mind
Then it’s down to you to find
A way to leave it all behind

I try to be the strong one
Moving dark clouds
To bring the sun
Deep inside I’m the weak link
Enjoy the ride
Try not to think
Just have another drink
Cheers

Its not how this has to be
Devoid of normality
In this my solemn decree
That one day we will be free
You and me
And them
Track Name: Keep Me Around
Eight years old when the news came in
Decision final, it was a no-win
The sun it set in me, eternally
Sleepless nights and midnight frights
Confusion, anger and fist fights
A normality transfusion, terminally

Good friends they come and go
And that’s alright
It’s you and us all there, day and night
And when I get that scent of powder
The cries for help get louder and louder
But you
Pull me back

When the line is ragged and blurred
I spiral into the absurd
But you keep me around
when my eyes are dead and red
Energy redundant, underfed
Well you keep me around

A happy go lucky kid, glint in its eyes
Resorts to white lies about family ties
On the surface, cracked and peeled
I wore a crooked smile of denial, still do
To put some contrast to the blue
Whether red or green, the grey skies held sway

Good friends they come and go
And that’s alright
But it’s you and them that keep me in this fight
And when I get that scent of powder
The cries for help get louder and louder
But you
Pull me back
