Track Name: Thank God I'm Not Content
I act concerned but I never learn that what I give and what I get adds up to nil
Like all the showman marching like they’re Romans, you only seem to exist when you’re something to show
But what the fuck would I know

And if you want to be chaste I’m not going to chase
If you want to be saved I’m not going to save you

Fight it fight it fight cos at the end of the day things won’t all work
You fight it fight it fight hell nor heaven were made because you wanted it

And if you want to be chaste I’m not going to chase
If you want to be saved I’m not going to save you

Just a something, doing nothing, you piss it out I think you’ll get what you deserve

The future came and took my dreams
Waiting for the impact to change my ways

I act concerned but I never learn that what I give and what I get adds up to nil
Just a waste of space, empty out the place
Stop wasting time round here
Track Name: Vanity Project
I’ve been a fool, I’ve been a flake
I’ve been of the clichés that a faker and fake
I’ve been a king for a day
When I thought I was loved I was a figure of hate

Yeah and everything I create
Falls on deaf ears or blind eyes or my mates
It’s a vanity project and a life I waste

I’ve been a beggar, I’ve been a thief
Yeah well I beg for attention and I’ve stolen this riff
Dress like a shepherd, act like a sheep
I judge myself and my friends by the company we keep

And if it wasn’t for attention attained
By a half empty room and a stupid fucking name
Then I probably would never play

I’ve been a fool, I’ve been a flake
I’ve been a cut price concubine fake

And if it wasn’t for attention attained
By a half empty room and a stupid fucking name
Then I probably would never play
Track Name: Live and Die a Duke in Debt
Say you’re happy but I’m not sure I’m believing
Phase out, ennui
You’re bleeding anything to fall into that normal biography
Sacrifice your life, your teenage dream of autonomy

Or be one of those people who drive too slow
You break less rules but you break more bones
You’re drones remote controlled by a suit in a tie
Live, work, breed, build up credit and die

You’ve got a car, dog, house, wife, social capital city for life
Are you happy? Tell me are you happy?
Wide-screen partner, tell me how you waste your time
Are you happy? Tell me are you happy?
I’d rather live my life in debt than live one I regret
So tell me are you happy now?

Love yourself but you’re not sure that you’re worth it
Worship yourself just for something worth worship
It’s easy to make a drudge out of a beautiful ride
You’re alright being alright if it’s alright being fine

Cos you pride yourself on being one of those men
Who pride themselves on the money they spend
Your friends became acquaintances a long time ago
Proud to be alive and live a life that’s so so-so

Are you fucking happy with your life?
