Track Name: King Of Nothing
I woke up this morning with one memory of last night
The vision of a bottle, before I went to sleep
When I was naive it was always amusing
But now what I want has turned into what I need
The taste now steins my already tainted blood like the ink
I paid to stein my skin
I left my heart in a castle where I swapped it for a crown and a sceptre
So I could be king

But the king of nothing is just a peasant
Who just wears arrogance better than everybody else
With a castle of blood and sweat and bricks made of the cards
That I was so easily dealt
When you're alone it's too easy to drink yourself sober
Without knowing what's in your cup
You say you've seen it all before but it's kinda hard to help
When your eyes are so fucking wide shut

The king of nothing and the king of it all
Are both the same just before they fall
The king of nothing was always a fool
The king of it all was always
Destined to fall

Once upon a time we were the drunken knights
Off on another mission to get ourselves pissed
But it seems it's taken it's toll now we gave into that
Sweet nectar's kiss
Too many nights I've watched my best mate's eyes
Roll into the back of his head
But just like Cash once said 'If you paint that line,
motherfucker that's where I'll tread'

So I guess it's time to set off on another voyage to see if I can find some new ground
I've done it a few different times before, it seems it's always the same land I've found
So if this is where I should be, I guess I shouldn't want to change it for anything in the world
If I die young, I'll die happy, knowing I always kept myself

When the king is nothing but miserable
He is the envy of the drunken fool
The fool is crushed by the weight of it all
The king just laughs as his castle falls
Track Name: Batman
Well you walk in the room in the middle of the night
You spent the last two hours on the end of a pipe
You got your pockets lined with your mother's treats
And your sweat hits the floor with the move of the beat
And your heart beats faster with the kick of the drum
With lungs of smoke and a liver of rum
You can't stop moving, you think you might die
Your bloodshot eyes said you're in for a ride

Take me home
I think I might die

Well Batman fits with Mary Jane
If you wanna be driven half insane
You want moderation, here's the thing
You don't make friends with a gram of ding
You hurt your mind, you hurt your pride
Your lips are parched and your tongue is tied
You tried to make out with a girl from Russia
But you fucked up when you told her you love her

Take me home
I think I might die
Batman attacks in the middle of the night

You're drinking water like Bear Grylls piss
You can't remember that fella you just kissed
You got beat up behind Enigma bar
But you snorted nitrates in the back of your car
And you can't feel your fingers, can't feel your toes
Can't feel your face or your broken nose
There's tears running down the side of your face
Up comes the sun is it early or late?

Take me home
I think I might die
Batman attacks in the middle of the night
Take me home
I think I might die
Quick as a flash then gone out of sight

Well you wake up about three days later
Your car is missing your girlfriend hates you
There's a hole in your shirt the size of the moon
You're supposed to work at eight but it's half past noon
You're feeling tired, alone and depressed
But a few nights ago you were at your best
It's not your life, it's just the drugs
Give Batman a call for another pill hug
Track Name: Boats
My chest is full but my pocket's empty
And resonating like a kick drum
My brain won't read what my eyes are sensing
Looking right through the sun

Come write something in this chapter
I can't finish it by myself
When the words begin to scatter
We will put them back on the shelf

Don't you think
That if the worst was yet to come I'd be around
All boats sink eventually
Deep under the ground

My eyes are red from stimulation
Day dreaming too fucking hard
My brain has surely lost it's patience
On this narrow path

Don't you think
That if the worst was yet to come I'd be around
All boats sink eventually
And
Don't you think
That if the best was yet to come I'd make a sound
All boats sink eventually
Deep under the ground

And if the past is just a myth
Or some feelings that we did
I wanna know what you're talking about
If there's holes upon the stern
then notate what you've learned
and make us all sing it loud

And if the past is just a myth
Or some feelings that we did
I wanna know what you're talking about
If there's holes upon the stern
then notate what you've learned
and make us all fucking proud
Track Name: Sober Mind
Sun punches through my open window
Wakes me up with a searing pain running through my head
My sober mind was blind to my drunken eyes
My drunken ears are deaf to what my sober mind just said
Memories of a face I don't recognise
Was it real or did my brain wrap it up in a dream
Head so full of poison that I self medicate
Hallucinations make life harder than what it seems

You tear me down and make me feel like I might die
For a brief moment I feel so safe
The warmth that pulsates from my chest
Made the catch feel so much better than the chase
Better than the chase

Unseasonable raindrops falling on my head
They relax me from the usual torment of mental storms
Small steins of blood under my finger nails
My face feels like it's been run over by a juggernaut
It's hard to sleep when you can hear your own hair grow
Every small sound feels like it might be the end of the world
Flash backs seen through the pain of last night
Add to the pleasure of this hangover like it's hard to sell

Every night I say it's my last time
My last time with the only thing that ever makes me smile
Every night I crave just one more drink
Of the bitter liquid that always made me feel vile
Track Name: GBTUSA
Your greedy eyes are disguised by an arrogant guise
A bigoted grin masks the facts of your malodorous lies
Your skin a shade of yellow from fighting the toxin
Your liver gave up on fighting the poison your lost in
Every word you say an American worship
Idealising the obese, democratic dictatorship
My country has been turned to the big business gimp
The people have been fucked so hard they're starting to limp

God bless these United States of Australia
Do we really want to be...
God bless these United States of Australia
Anything like that country

The substance of life is second to an ancient book
Which is used to justify wars started by suited up crooks
I'm constantly told that their god is mine
Well if I end up in Hell, I'll be just fine
I'll hang out with the Atheists I know so well
The peaceful will inherit the gates of hell
While rapists and murders floated to the sky
Because they asked for forgiveness on the day that they died

God bless these United States of Australia
Do we really want to be...
God bless these United States of Australia
Anything like that country

Fast food on every corner, they take what money you have left
But if you eat from a bin, they will consider it theft
People aren't allowed to be poor, they aren't given help
So don't be shocked when they stand up and take it for themselves
Fat cat filled pockets from the tears of the silent
But the faces turn to fears when the weak become strident
So don't fucking tell me my generation's fucked
When my country is run by old bigoted cunts

God bless these United States of Australia
Do we really want to be...
God bless these United States of Australia
Anything like that country

I've become a shamed of this country, of my birth
Racism is standard, the weak mean less than the dirt
The power's in the hands of the classist scum
They pound their money hungry beats on their classist drum
Economy means more than the Earth that we live
The money we take is better than the help that we give
I've learned my life is anger, built out of habit
And if I die my last breath will be; Fuck you Tony Abbott!
