  • S.P.I.R.I.T.
    Spirit, let's hear it
    S.P.I.R.I.T.
    Spirit, let's hear it
    Let's go!

    I've had enough
    There's a voice in my head
    Says I'm better off dead

    But if I sing along
    A little fucking louder to a happy song
    I'll be alright

    You want to give up
    Gave it all that you've got and it still doesn't cut

    But if you sing along
    A little fucking louder to a happy song
    You'll be just fine 'cause

    Every now and again we get that feeling
    And the great big void inside us opens up
    And I really wish that you could help
    But my head is like a carousel
    And I'm going round in circles
    I'm going round in circles

    S.P.I.R.I.T.
    Spirit, let's hear it
    S.P.I.R.I.T.
    Spirit, let's hear it

    We are possessed
    We're all fucked in the head
    Alone and depressed

    But if we sing along
    A little fucking louder to a happy song
    Maybe we'll forget 'cause

    Every now and again we get that feeling
    And the great big void inside us opens up
    And I really wish that you could help
    But my head is like a carousel
    And I'm going round in circles
    I'm going round in circles

    Don't wake us up, we'd rather just keep dreaming
    'Cause the nightmares in our heads are bad enough
    And I really wish that you could help
    But my head is like a carousel
    And I'm going round in circles
    I'm going round in circles

    The world has coalesced
    Into one giant mess
    Of hate and unrest
    So let's all sing along
    A little goddamn louder to a happy song
    And pretend it's all ok

    Let's go!

    So sing along
    Let's sing along
    A little fucking louder
    A little fucking louder
    Well, don't you feel so much better?

    S.P.I.R.I.T.
    Spirit, let's hear it (well, that's the spirit)

    S.P.I.R.I.T.
    Spirit, let's hear it (yeah, that's the spirit) Writer/s: Jordan Fish, Lee Malia, Matthew Kean, Matthew Nicholls, Oliver Sykes
