lyrics

A skulk of foxes surrounding my every move
There is fault here that’s hard to prove
baying for blood…my blood…at any cost
Any hope of survival is quite clearly lost

I AM A PERFECTIONIST
I AM A PROCRASTINATOR
Never achieving the high standards that I set
I AM A SOMNAMBULIST
I AM (JUST) A SPECTATOR
As others control what I am and what I get

Complicated, intertwined, hard to understand
Close ties try to kick start me to be man
That is me…the way it is…today
Not realising, I can’t control it in that way.

Months of talk, am I getting anywhere
Even though some show and claim to care
Sometimes I am…but then…sometimes not
They’re not in it and dealing with my lot

So while the foxes drool and circle my weakened frame
All good snatched away, things aren’t even the same
Blind to see what is really going on inside my head
Will I ever escape and be the leader not the led

IT’S EASIER TO CRITICISE, THAN IT IS TO UNDERSTAND
WISHING THINGS WERE BETTER IS MUCH EASIER IF YOU CAN
MY GLASS IS HALF BROKEN, HALF FULL BUT FULL OF GLASS
OPEN TO DISCRIMINATION, FALLING ON MY ARSE

(Written by Jordan)
