  • Maybe lack of sleep, or last nights drinks
    Now my eyes twitching, if that prick coughs again
    In the back of my head
    I'll smash your fucking face in

    Okay, that's it, take a deep breath
    I've got to get out of here
    I've got to clear my head
    I've got to clear my head

    It's all these words, ideas and different arguments
    Someone's always talking when I try to make some sense
    From all this stress that is constantly going on
    I just drift along with no focus or meaning
    Lean back, stare up at the ceiling
    I just drift along with no focus or meaning

    I've got the same shirt on for two days in a row
    With a soya sauce stain so everyone knows
    Can shower and scrub
    Still smell like the smoking bit in a Weather spoons pub

    I'll have my lunch early, get some sugar in my blood
    My clothes still smell of last night
    I've got to clear my head

    It's all these words, ideas and different arguments
    Someone's always talking when I try to make some sense
    From all this stress that is constantly going on
    I just drift along with no focus or meaning
    Lean back, stare up at the ceiling
    I just drift along with no focus or meaning

    Why do these tourists walk so slow?
    Especially now I've got somewhere to go?
    And a posh sounding girl, going on and on
    About her dog and Mr. Morgan
    It sounds so funny when I hear you calling!
    Mum be like 'boy what you doing?'
    Please shut up and try and sound confident
    In a crap job when your mini course is done

    It's all these words, ideas and different arguments
    Someone's always talking when I try to make some sense
    From all this stress that is constantly going on
    I just drift along with no focus or meaning
    Lean back, stare up at the ceiling
    I just drift along with no focus or meaning Writer/s: ALAN DONOHOE, JAMES HORN-SMITH, LASSE PETERSEN, MATTHEW SWINNERTON, MATTHEW JAMES SWINNERTON
