Well my back is tight and my eyes are seeing blurred I know you're talking to me but I haven't heard a word I haven't heard a word, my vision's blurred, I'm getting used to it somehow And every day I think I'm falling behind What I thought I knew is getting redefined I'm getting redefined, I'm falling behind, I'm loosing my mind I'm just a little less capable I'm just a little less capable today Just a little less capable I know it's easy to think you're on your own I know it feels like it but hey you haven't been deboned You haven't been deboned, you're not alone, you're getting over it somehow Just a little less capable You're just a little less capable today Just a little less capable Just a little less capable You're just a little less capable today Just a little less capable You're just a little less capable today Just a little less capable

Wet Clothes 03:15
In the dead of night when you're sleep in bed Panic sets in and it fills your head You're too tired to fight so it brings you down And panic claims another nighttime I'm leaning on a wall looking down a well And you're telling me a story of a kid who fell To his death in the 70s And panic claims another nighttime Get out of those wet clothes baby Get out of the rain Get out of those wet clothes baby And the sun will come out again I'm on Inis Oír taking in the view It's wild and it's rugged and it's beautiful Though I'm safe in bed many years later I still worry 'bout the danger In a sweat, gripped with fear Over shit that didn't happen and we're Lying here, asleep in bed Yet panic claims another nighttime Get out of those wet clothes baby Get out of the rain Get out of those wet clothes baby And the sun will come out again Get out of those wet clothes baby Get out of the rain Get out of those wet clothes baby And the sun will come out again Get out of those wet clothes baby Get out of the rain Get out of those wet clothes baby And the sun will come out again

Hate Is Easy 02:48
What would you do if you found out That your friends believed in creation? Or your mother's sister's daughter's friend Went to England for an abortion I want to live in a world where we have no need for cops Crime is down, gays walk hand in hand And the tide beats off the rocks And it rocks Hate is easy, life is hard Hate is easy and life is hard I'd rather see you smiling As you recount the time you felt that you were saved I find your stories fascinating You know what's good for you man is good for me But don't blow smoke in my face it'll only make me cough You can buy as many fags as you like don't want to make you stop You stop Hate is easy, life is hard Patience is difficult no matter who you are Hate is easy, life is hard Hate is easy and life is hard Don't be a what-abouter, don't try to distract me Don't be a what-abouter, life is hard

Sick 03:13
There's no avoiding this I know Confronted by them everywhere you go And there's no need to listen, there's no need to hear What the people are saying Or what logic declares Sick of guns Killing everyone Sick of guns Every toy and every book Every game and every film And every newspaper On every news stand There is no escaping My patience is fading and I'm sick Sick of guns Killing everyone Sick of guns Sick of guns Sick of guns Killing everyone Sick of guns Killing everyone Sick of guns Sick of guns

I'm not scared yea Please give me one more try I don't know why my hands are shaking I'm trying not to get my picture taken I'm freaking out And I'm busy looking busy I don't know why my hands are shaking I'm trying not to get my picture taken I'm freaking out And I'm busy looking busy I don't know why my hands are shaking I'm trying not to get my picture taken I'm freaking out And I'm busy looking busy I don't know why my hands are shaking I'm trying not to get my picture taken I'm freaking out And I'm busy looking busy

Art's not a competition And it's not a fire sale I'm not here for recognition I'm playing records with a six inch nail They can't all be winners They can't all be winners They can't all be winners Sam Smith is winning Grammies And we play the minor scale I don't expect to win a Grammy Or even a paragraph on a fucking website They can't all be winners They can't all be winners They can't all be winners Aye! They can't all be winners They can't all be winners They can't all be winners They can't all be winners They can't all be winners They can't all be winners They can't all be winners They can't all be winners
