Track Name: Set Me Free
Life is very boring, diversions overflowing,
The smartphone epidemic, apathetic ways.
We're running on the treadmill, life is at a standstill,
Running in the street is becoming so passe
They say we're more productive because we're more connected
but now we're working longer, where's the sense in that.
My online friends are plenty but I'm feeling lonely
We're hanging out together on a Facebook chat.

Can someone come and set me free
From living with these ironies
The way it all appears to me
The more we're moving forward we go backward.
Set me Free.

Artificial flavours in water for consumers
Clean water running plenty from our kitchen tap.
We're busy being social staring at our iPhones
sitting in a cafe suggested by an app.
We're working hard to pay for a house we fell in love with
we never spend much time in because we're out all day.
Our texts are all corrected by inbuilt spelling checkers
The message becomes nonsense on LED display.

Can someone come and set me free
From living with these ironies
The way it all appears to me
The more we're moving forward we go backward.
Set me Free.

Set me free now someone, set me free
Set me free now someone, set me free
Set me free now someone, set me free
Set me free now someone, set me free

Can someone come and set me free
From living with these ironies
The way it all appears to me
The more we're moving forward we go backward.
Can someone come and set me free
From living with these ironies
The way it all appears to me
The more we're moving forward we go backward.
Set me Free.
Track Name: Nothing to Do
Where I'm going, what I'm doing, there is nothing on my mind.
I'm sitting here watching the clouds go by
and the birds that are swooping from their perches on high.
Enjoying the rest and enjoying the pace,
drinking up all the sun and enjoying the space.
Escaping the world, whilst I dream away
Getting lost in the blue of this sunny day.

Well the sun's in the sky, I'm rushing on a wave of serotonin high.
Oh I've got nothing to do, I don't know where I'm going, can I be here with you.

Bees are buzzin', rivers flowin', monarchs gliding through the air
I'm sitting here watching the clear water flow,
Feel the touch of the ripples running through my toes.
Enjoying the feeling of the cold on my feet,
and the smell of the water drying up in the heat.
Summer skies and endless dreams
My feet in the river and the taste of ice cream.

Well the sun's in the sky, I'm rushing on a wave of serotonin high.
Oh I've got nothing to do, I don't know where I'm going, can I be here with you.

Oh the lazy days of summer, to while away
Crazy endless days of sun, oh will you stay.
Oh I love the sun on my skin and the breeze through my hair
Oh will you be there, oh will you be there
Oh will you be there, oh will you be there.

Where I'm going, what I'm doing, there is nothing on my mind.
I'm sitting here watching the clouds go by
and the birds that are swooping from their perches on high.
Enjoying the rest and enjoying the pace,
drinking up all the sun and enjoying the space.
Escaping the world, whilst I dream away
Getting lost in the blue of this sunny day.

Well the sun's in the sky, I'm rushing on a wave of serotonin high.
Oh I've got nothing to do, I don't know where I'm going, can I be here with you.

Oh the lazy days of summer, to while away
Crazy endless days of sun, oh will you stay.
Oh I love the sun on my skin and the breeze through my hair
Oh will you be there, oh will you be there.
Track Name: Let's Do it Again
Feeling happy then I'm feeling sad.
You're simply the best that I've ever had
The thought of your touch well it sends me mad.
I'm need you.

The prospect of pleasure gives me a thrill
From the crest of this wave it's all downhill
I want it once more I don't want to chill.
Now I'm with you.

Oh my love, we could be happy now
Oh my love, let's do it again
Sweet excess, consuming me all the time
Oh my love, let's do it again.

Intimate moments shared by only us
The little things we never need to discuss
They heighten the tension just because
I'm with you.

Your provocation it makes me years
My heart is thumping and my stomach churns
I kiss your lips, it makes me burn baby.
I need you.

Oh my love, we could be happy now
Oh my love, let's do it again
Sweet excess, consuming me all the time
Oh my love, let's do it again.

Lets do it, get on it, I need it
Lets do it, get on it, I need it
Lets do it, get on it, I need it
Lets do it, get on it, I need it

Oh my love, we could be happy now
Oh my love, let's do it again
Sweet excess, consuming me all the time
Oh my love, let's do it again.
Track Name: Me & You
We've bee together, it seems forever
But sometimes you seem so far away.
Lying here beside you, I want to hold you.
But life just gets in the way
Sometimes.

And sometimes, I feel lonely
And sometimes, I'm insecure
Even though I feel so restless
I keep coming back to you
I keep coming back to you
Oh yeah I'm coming back to you.

Our memories bind us, with the years behind us
We've had our fair share of ups and downs
Through many heart breaks and many handshakes
Building our achievements up together
From the ground.

And sometimes, I feel lonely
And sometimes, I'm insecure
Even though I feel so restless
I keep coming back to you
I keep coming back to you
Oh I keep coming back to you.

Now we're growing older, my love it smoulders
But it keeps on glowing inside of me
It's somehow stronger as we go on longer
There's no place I'd rather be
Than with you.

And sometimes, I feel lonely
And sometimes, I'm insecure
Even though I feel so restless
I keep coming back to you
I keep coming back to you
Oh I keep coming back to you.

Oh I keep coming back to you
Oh I keep coming back to you
Oh I keep coming back to you
Oh I keep coming back to you
Oh I keep coming back to you
Oh I keep coming back to you
Oh I keep coming back to you
Oh I keep coming back to you
Track Name: First World Problems
There's so much fighting in the world today
And global poverty is on the rise
The inequality gap it widens fast
but Countdown don't stock my favourite pies.

First world problems, they bring me down
First world problems, all around
First world problems, so unfair
First world problems, oh yeah

I hear about ebola on the news
And about the bush fires in the western isle
But all of this has no significance to me
Coz my teeth aren't white enough to smile

First world problems, they bring me down
First world problems, all around
First world problems, so unfair
First world problems, oh yeah

I feel the pang of sadness rising,
When are the All Blacks arriving
What's all this about starvation
I can't reboot my playstation
I have no charge in my iPhone
Are they still rebuilding the red zone
Oh what does all this mean to me oooooh.

The ocean temperatures are creeping up
And earth is warming day by day
But all of this well it just don't matter to me
I just don't know what song I want to play.

First world problems, they bring me down
First world problems, all around
First world problems, so unfair
First world problems, oh yeah



First world problems, they won't go away
First world problems, they're here to stay
First world problems, so misunderstood
First world problems, they're here for good

My first world problems they won't go
My first world problems they won't go
My first world problems they won't go
My first world problems they won't go

My first world problems
My first world problems
My first world problems
My first world problems
