Some people, right?! doesn't matter what they do, they are always fucking miserable. fuck them, stop bringing the rest of us down! here's a thought: pay attention to your surroundings, ask yourself why things are they way they are. If you don't know, go fuckin' find out! thats what you're supposed to do with your brain! if you do this you will either live happier, or at least be slightly smarter. until you can stand in your own hallway with a smile on your face, dont bother booking a holiday, 'cause you'll probably miss the point of it.


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...
