I wasn't happy. I might have been depressed. Or I just wanted some adventure that never came. I don't know. I thought a different job, one where I travelled, that might be the answer. So now I go to all sorts of place. I meet clients in the UK, Germany, China. I holiday in the Whitsundays, in 5 Star hotels. Dine at the most renowned international restaurants. I fly high. I play big. I live the dream. All over the globe. I'm networked worldwide. Transglobal. But it doesn't matter where I go. How far I travel. Where ever I am, I'm still... me.

Selflessness 03:19
Terrorists and criminals, they besiege you the poor But there’s no way that they can get in through our new back door Don’t you know your safety is at stake? Unless we might have to help those who we've locked away It’s a sacrifice we will gladly make Our opponents can’t be trusted to run this country If they were in charge it would be a catastrophe Our intent is to act with integrity They won’t have to fight us if we fight amongst ourselves Everything we do, we do it for you You want to be safe? Lock up the immigrants! You want a clean world? Coal is the answer! You want a fair go? No payments for the poor! You want a government who cares? Go look somewhere else. Merry fucking Christmas

Mistakes 02:31
Forgot your birthday Dropped my favourite mug Called out the wrong name When we were making love It’s not impossible No matter how unlikely But how will you react When you piss on your own knee Didn’t pay a power bill Backed the car into the fence Misspelled a word filling out a form Brought the pegs but not the tents Didn’t speak up about oppression Stood by while Nazis took over Waited for the weekend To fill up my Range Rover It’s not impossible No matter how unlikely But how will you react When you piss on your own knee

Problems 01:30
I wash in the river So I can get clean My problems washed away Taken downstream Cleansed is my body Renewed is my soul Though nothing yet exists Which can fill this gaping hole I strain to expel the darkness backed up deep inside Bobbing just below the waves is where my darkness hides I shit in the river But I'm not unclean Because all my turds Float downstream My concerns are all gone And now that is that Because someone somewhere else Gets to deal with all my crap
5.
Maturation 03:09
Getting older now I want to be a man And I will get there Because I have a plan I’ve been told I have to grow Taller than I’ve ever been Right outta my clothes The biggest man you’ve seen In my room now It’s my sanctuary Where I will work At becoming me Now I can grow Tallest that I’ve ever been I’m outta my clothes The biggest man I’ve ever seen What do I do? What is this thing I feel? Am I now a man? My muscles as hard as steel This is far as I planned I’m feeling strange What’s going on down there? Maybe I’m deranged I think I am unprepared Here I come Rocket to space Now a bad teenage moustache Plastered over my face

Acceptance 02:15
Suc Madiq said to me We don’t need diversity Everything is bound to fall If we get political O p i n i o n I n t e n t A c t i o n J u s t i c e Suc Madiq said to me We don’t want equality I don’t know if you heard We all get what we deserve Suc Madiq said to me Suc Madiq said to me Suc Madiq said to me Suc Madiq 4 lyf

Control 01:43
I don’t care how I want it now I don’t give a shit You just bring it Alcohol and coffee It’s the stuff that fuels me You can’t stop this No matter what you wish Though it might bring strife The reason for my life Alcohol and coffee It is inside me The fire in my belly I do what it tells me I feel my heart pounding Going to explode My guts are swelling Ready to unload My life goes by Flashes before my eyes A pair perfecto I’m drowned in Affogato Alcohol and coffee It flows right through me It is the monkey That is in control of me

Romance 01:59
It’s like something performed by Penn & Teller There are those who think it’s real magic But don’t be fooled it’s just an illusion There’s a reason that they call it a trick It's perplexing when it’s you in the spot light How did it happen and you just didn’t know You always thought that you were harder to get past A real trickster won’t reveal their hand though Fool me once shame on you Fool me twice shame on me What's done has baffled us all How it works a mystery It’s like something performed by Penn & Teller There are those who think it’s real magic But don’t be fooled it’s just an illusion There’s a reason that they call it a trick People say that there is something between us There are those who call it relationship But together we are yelling and screaming Is this normal or are we just sick? Fool me once shame on you Fool me twice shame on me What we saw has been destroyed Broken by gullibility

Independancy 02:00
All of us are our own people We have problems that can be seen We can’t escape they’re all around us And they spew right from the screen If we could give a face to our issues We could confront them so clearly Maybe if its someone we all know Like that guy from the Big Bang Theory 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 We are coming for you now, Wil Wheaton All of us have an opinion But we just don’t know how to act Maybe focus is all that we need For when we go on the attack Please don’t mistake our intentions We don’t want to be forced to fight And he does have a soft side When he wishes all of us goodnight 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 We are coming for you now, Wil Wheaton That’s us standing at your door, Wil Wheaton Won’t you tell us what to do, Wil Wheaton Lead the Revolution, Wil Wheaton

Confidence 01:54
Netflix and chill Is part of my vocabulary I’ve just gotta find Someone who will chill with me Friends with benefits They make an app for that So who will swipe Right on my portrait I’m DTF Lonely housewives Apparently can be found But not so alone That they’ll come around Menage a tre The ultimate sexy It’s easy to organise When it doesn’t include me I’m a good guy Females don’t understand That’s what I tell myself While I complain on 4chan I’m DTF At my address So why can’t I Find much success?

Identity 02:32
I’m so manly I wish you could see me All over sweat glistening So I hope you are listening A model of manly health As I dig a big hole for myself I’m so manly But you can’t see me As I sit in the dark at home Reflecting on why I’m alone Perhaps I’ve made an error As I descend into existential terror There’s a swelling inside me, but I push it down I’m the alpha of myself so I don’t want to drown

Exaltation 01:56
Watch me disappear Over the next hill Dust follows me to my eventual doom One day I will die Dead as dead can be Who knows if this will happen soon I'm surrounded by All my family We head towards the only light we can see Convulsions wrack my world As I jet into the unknown What waits for me there? And now here I come As I came before Searching for a home I do not know Jostled by my kin A stampede of the damned Is it a natural urge that we follow? Rising into view Larger than a life I’m not entirely sure what I expected I have an uncontrollable urge I am compelled to act No one asked, no one gave me options We just did as we were told Did I get a choice in this life?
13.
Relevance 02:03
Marilyn Manson used to be edgey Now he’s just a fat old man like me Spending every day in shirt and jeans Complaining about everything he sees Are your heroes still heroes if they are just like you? Tony Martin used to be funny Now he’s just an old has-been like me Trying hard to make another show But can only listen to the radio Are your heroes still heroes if they are just like you? If your heroes aren’t heroes where does that leave you?

Conclusions 02:12
I can’t tell what things are important I can’t tell what facts are relevant I can’t tell if the world is insane I can’t tell if this gate is my plane Mr B & Mr C A litany of misery Mr B & Mr C People what can never be Mr B & Mr C Is there hope of breaking free Mr B & Mr C We shall see, boy, we shall see I get the feeling that this is my fault But I just don’t want to disappoint I try to be a better person But everything about me just seems to worsen Mr B & Mr C A virus from the giving tree Mr B & Mr C Shove them up inside of me Mr B & Mr C Tied up front then sets us free Mr B & Mr C The magic from your lynching tree Mr B & Mr C Are we real of fantasy Mr B & Mr C Who are the birds, are we to bees Mr B & Mr C Cthulhu level mystery Mr B & Mr C Nothing's going to make you happy
