Track Name: Crazy Life
I switch the TV on, and real life is gone
Flashing visions of a media frenzy
Visions come and go, life moves really slow
I am caged by this bizarre society.
Tell me how to care, all your thoughts laid bare
Many discourses well they surround me
Tell me what to wear and how to cut my hair
All of this allows a moot conformity

Oh don't let go, it's a crazy crazy life
Don't let go.
Keep moving on, it's a crazy crazy life
Carry on.

I read the latest news, all the latest blues
All the pain and anguish that surrounds me.
I feel the media spin, oh what a life we're in
Running fast but then we're moving nowhere.
We're surrounded by, a need to justify
Being different in a similarity
There's so much to hate, we all abdicate
Our thought processes to hypocrisy.

Oh don't let go, it's a crazy crazy life
Don't let go
Keep moving on, it's a crazy crazy life
Don't let go oh ye-eah

Instrumental

Oh don't let go, it's a crazy crazy life
Don't let go
Keep moving on, it's a crazy crazy life
Carry on ye-eah

Its a crazy crazy crazy crazy li-i-ife
Crazy crazy crazy crazy li-i-ife
Crazy crazy crazy crazy crazy crazy li-i-ife
Crazy crazy crazy crazy crazy crazy crazy, it's a crazy life.
Track Name: Having a Bad Day
Slept in late and rushing around
Dropped a glass it smashed on the ground
In the shop my card is declined
I'm having a bad day yeah, having a bad day yeah

Spent three hours in A & E
There is scratches on my favourite CD
And now my car has a flat battery
I'm having a bad day yeah, having a bad day yeah
Having a bad day, oh yeah, having a bad day, oh oh

I want to scream and shout, got to let it all out
Going to be so profane just to see what I gain
Going to bang some things see what pleasure that brings
Will it make it alright, will it make it alright
Will it make it alright.

Stuck right here I've ran out of fuel
I got the wrong order at the drive thru
And now the sole of my shoe well its worn right through
I'm having a bad day yeah, having a bad day yeah

It's raining on my parade
I have no lemons left to make lemonade
And even my silver lining it has turned grey
I'm having a bad day yeah, having a bad day yeah
Having a bad day, oh yeah, having a bad day oh oh

I want to scream and shout, got to let it all out
Going to be so profane just to see what I gain
Going to bang some things see what pleasure that brings
Will it make it alright, will it make it alright
Will it make it alright.
Will it make it alright.
Track Name: Song for the Lost Things
Oh oh oh, oh where did you go now,
Oh I guess I'll never know
I'll keep on looking for a few minutes more,
Your absence I just can't ignore, I just can't ignore

I know you can evade me,
By playing hide and seek
And it is always when I'm running late
You like to make me wait oh yeah, you like to make me wait.

I have tried mindful thinking
Wracking brains, retracing steps
I know in the future, you will reappear
When I'm looking for some more lost things
I know you will appear.

Oh oh oh, oh where did you go now
Holding out and standing firm
I'm being held prisoner, by my keys
It brings me to my knees, oh yeah, it brings me to my knees

But for you dear phone I have the answer
I've got you all worked out
I know if I call you I will hear you ring
Unless your battery's flat, oh yeah and then silently you'll laugh.
Track Name: Passive Aggressive
I'm walking forward and I'll keep on walking straight
It doesn't matter what you say I won't take your bait
I'll rise above it, oh yeah yeah baby I am strong
I don't care what you think of me no no
Just move along

I know you really want to knife me in the heart
Passive aggression well that's where you like to start
Micro expressions, I can see for what they are
So I'll just keep on going on my way,
I won't care what you say.

Micro expressions, passive aggression, endless depression
Micro expressions, passive aggression, endless depression
Micro expressions, passive aggression, endless depression yeah
Micro expressions, passive aggression, endless depression yeah

Back handed compliments, ignoring what I say
I find you keeping score of what I do each day
I'd really like it, if you could just spit it out
So unless you spell it out in black and white
I'll ignore your plight

So when you give me grief and tell me what to think
I'll rise myself up tall and get myself in sync
I'll find my tribe now, coz they really make me feel alive yeah
So I'll just keep on going on my way
I don't care what you say.
Track Name: Simple Pleasures
The sky is so blue, the sun is shining there's no denying
It's a beautiful day, it makes me want to get away
Shall we go to the sea? Shall we make our way down to Ngawi?
Let's get out to the coast, coz that's the place I really love the most.

I want to look out across the waves,
Feel the warm breeze brush against my face,
Dig my feet into warm, wet, sand
Here I'm alive, I'm in the promised land, won't you take my hand.

Oh I feel like I'm alive, oh I can't get over
The sky's not falling, I feel like talking
All my troubles melt away,
Oh take my hand forever we will stay, yeah.

Shall we walk in the bush, the birds are singing, I think we're winning
The sound of the trees, I love them rustling in the breeze
And we keep going up, we keep on going and we keep exploring
When we get to the top, that Wairarapa view it opens up.

When I get a glimpse of the view from the top
I take a deep breath, my heart it wants to stop.
A moment in time seeking pleasures divine
I feel so small but I can walk so tall, you know that I walk tall.

Oh I feel like I'm alive, oh I can't get over
The sky's not falling, I feel like talking
All my troubles melt away,
Oh take my hand forever we will stay, yeah.

Instrumental

When I'm with you time moves so slow
It doesn't matter, where we choose to go
A walk in the bush or out to the coast
Being here with you is the place that I love most.
It's the place that I love most.
