1. Wreck It Like Beckett (3:19)
I am distracted
I am bored
I see everything
All at once
Wipe the slate
Leave it blank
Pare it down to the bone

Everyone's living all over each other
Everyone’s living their life out loud
Everyone's fighting with one another
Shut off the picture, kill the sound

Wreck it
Like Beckett
Wreck it
Like Beckett

I can't afford
The life I’d like
Look in the mirror
It just laughs back
I feel helpless
I feel cursed
It doesn't get better than this
It gets worse

Everyone's living all over each other
Everyone's living their life out loud
Everyone's fighting with one another
Shut off the picture, kill the sound

Wreck it
Like Beckett
Wreck it
Like Beckett

On...
On...
On...
On...

Everyone's living all over each other
Everyone's living their life out loud
Everyone's fighting with one another
Shut off the picture, kill the sound

Wreck it
Like Beckett
Wreck it
Like Beckett

Wreck it
Wreck it
2. Kakistocracy (2:58)
Do you feel lost?
Because I feel lost
Do you feel let down
Because I feel so let down
Do you feel betrayed?
Do you feel bewildered?
How do we explain this
Do you have the answers?

It's okay not to be okay
It's okay not to be okay
It's okay not to be okay
It's okay not to be okay

Do you feel lost?
Because I feel lost
Do you feel let down
Because I feel so let down
Do you feel betrayed?
Do you feel bewildered?
How do we explain this
Do you have the answers?

It's okay not to be okay
It's okay not to be okay
It's okay not to be okay
It's okay not to be okay
When you're living through this

Is this the end of empathy?
Turn away from the poor
Pulling up the drawbridge
And bolting the door
What about the helpless?
What about the homeless?
What about the desperates?
What about the hopeless?

It's okay not to be okay
It's okay not to be okay
It's okay not to be okay
It's okay not to be okay
It's okay not to be okay
It's okay not to be okay
It's okay not to be okay
It's okay not to be okay
3. Callow (3:03)
I can't unbecome myself
This twisted lump of flesh
Is everything I am
And what I’ve always been
And I have made mistakes
Our things have gone so wrong
Now here you come to fix me
Like a broken down machine

A living thing of skin and bone...

I don't need your medicine
I don't need anything from you
If you take my demons
You’ll take my angels too

I've seen the face of suicide
It's such a savage God
But I would rather take my chance
Than catatonically stare at the wall

No I don't wanna mellow out...

I don't need your medicine
I don't need anything from you
If you take my demons
You'll take my angels too
Take my angels too

I don't need your medicine
I don’t need anything from you
And if you take my demons
You’ll take my angels too
4. Expelled (3:01)
Some live their lives in concrete
Some live their lives in comfort
Some land, others fall
Some poor souls, they are just...

Spat out
Expelled
Let go
Spat out

I wasn't born pretty
I wasn't born rich
Everything I've got
I've had to fight for it

Spat out
Expelled
Let go
Spat out into this wretched world
This wretched world
This wretched world

Demonized as an underclass
Seen as an inconvenience
Pitiful, twisted lumps of flesh
Swept aside by progress
And patronized when restless
And hope?
Hope is a fairy tale
We tell ourselves

Spat out
Expelled
Let go
Spat out into this wretched world
This wretched world
This wretched world
5. Success? Success is Survival (3:53)
The cream of this country: rich and fake
Will always rise to the top
Those beneath on hands and knees
Left to curl and rot

That's the order that's been set
We're expected to accept
You can dream how you want
But you'll never get

Success?
Success is survival
Success?
Success is survival

They choose homes in the Promised Land
A luxury they don't have
And put their kids on the water
'Cause it's just not safe on the land

That's the order that's been set
We're expected to accept
You can dream how you want
But you'll never get

Success?
Success is survival
Success?
Success is survival

Some of us have nothing left
Some of us take it all
Some of us have nothing left
Divided, vulnerable

Success?
(Keep going, keep going)
Success is survival
Success?
(Keep going, keep going)
Success is survival
Success?
(Keep going, keep going)
Success is survival
Success?
(Keep going, keep going)
Success is survival
6. Save Me From the Ordinary (2:57)
Life has punched me drunk
And now I'm all blacked out
Try to break the crust of habit
That renders me blind

Trapped in a void
A godless home
Stalemate between holding on and
Letting go

Days unfold
Unsure, unsteady
Save me from the ordinary
Please

In modern times
A little man
In the grip of change
Another cog in the wheel of the world

Days unfold
Unsure, unsteady
Save me from the ordinary
Days unfold
Unsure, unsteady
Save me from the ordinary
Please
Please
7. Crutch (3:00)
You've been around since I can remember
Far longer than I care to know
Always ready to light me up
In your toxic glow
An old wound that I can't stop licking
I can't seem to leave you alone
Like a scab that I can't stop picking
I can't let you go

You once were the spark that gave me life
Now I wish that I'd just left you alone
You once were the fire that set me alight
But now you're just a crutch
And I can't...

All my greatest regrets
You're always somewhere in the frame
You take more than you give back
And I feel ashamed

You once were the spark that gave me life
Now I wish that I'd just left you alone
You once were the fire that set me alight
But now you're just a crutch
And I can't...

You once were the spark that gave me life
Now I wish that I'd just left you alone
You once were the fire that set me alight
But now you're just a crutch
And I can't
And I can't
And I can't
Can't let go
8. I Stand Alone (4:08)
You've let me down again
Now I'm back in the dark
Where all is fear
And nothing is love
Consumed by grief
I'm swallowed
Panic eats me alive
I'm swallowed

I stand alone
I stand alone
I stand alone
(I'm swallowed)
I stand alone
I stand alone
I, I stand alone
I...

I am only a cork
Floating on the ocean
But underneath
Everything has teeth
Here comes another wave
I'm swallowed
By the blackest mess
I'm swallowed

I stand alone
I stand alone
I stand alone
(I'm swallowed)
I stand alone
I stand alone
I (Consumed by grief and sorrow) I stand alone
I (Consumed by grief and sorrow) I stand alone

If we let go at this stage
There will be no going back
The void will take it all away
If we let go at this stage
There will be no coming back
The void will take it all away
Hand in hand to nothing

I stand alone
I stand alone
I stand alone
(I'm swallowed)
I stand alone
I stand alone
I (Consumed by grief and sorrow) I stand alone
I (Consumed by grief and sorrow) I stand alone
I (Consumed by grief and sorrow) I stand alone

Consumed by grief and sorrow
9. Dumbdown (3:01)
Hand in
Hand out
Unhappy
Reach out
In debt
In doubt
Go hungry
Sleep out

Dumbdown
Dumbdown
Dumbdown
A nation on the verge of a nervous breakdown
Dumbdown
Dumbdown
Dumbdown
A nation on the verge of collapse

Some people
Like you
Hate people
Like me
I don't belong here
I'm not pure
Your truth is revealed

Dumbdown
Dumbdown
Dumbdown
A nation on the verge of a nervous breakdown
Dumbdown
Dumbdown
Dumbdown
A nation on the verge of collapse

Slip, slipping away
Back into the sea
An island race
More divided and bleak
You would send me back
Back to my home
But this is my home
Try pulling me out

Dumbdown
Dumbdown
Dumbdown
A nation on the verge of a nervous breakdown
Dumbdown
Dumbdown
Dumbdown
A nation on the verge of collapse
10. No Sunshine (3:25)
Everyday's the same
Walking round in circles like my ankle's on a chain

No living, no good times
No life, no daylight
No living, no good times
No life and...

No sunshine
No sunshine

Depression is a thief
It robs you of friends and self belief

No living, no good times
No life and...

No sunshine
No sunshine

No sunshine
No sunshine
No sunshine
No sunshine

My heart is so heavy
My peace has gone
My heart is so heavy
My peace has gone
