Motivation

Album: All Killer No Filler (2001)
Charted: 21
  • What's the point of never knowing at all?
    When every step I take is always too small.
    Maybe it's just something I can't admit,
    But lately I feel like I don't give a shit.

    [Chorus]
    Motivation such an aggravation
    Accusations don't know how to take them
    Inspiration getting hard to fake it
    Concentration never hard to break it
    Situation never what you want it to be

    What's the point of never making mistakes
    Self-indulgence's such a hard habit to break
    It's all just a waste of time in the end
    Don't care, so why should I even pretend?

    [Chorus: x2]

    Never what you want it to be,
    Never what you want it to be Writer/s: MIDGE URE, WILLIAM CURRIE, STEVE STRANGE, RUSTY EGAN, DAVE FORMULA
