lyrics

I called for another drink
Flicked my ash into the sink
I played drunken guitar
And fumbled through my repertoire
I hear the bird's song when I try to sleep
I think a lot, this needs to stop, just starting from next week

I knock the bottle of the drink
Take the pen and start to think
About working out a plan, a plan for working out
Put my body to the test
Fuel it only with the best
Goji beans and some bullshit herbal teas
And get ready for the test

Here's to wanting everything to be the opposite of what is currently
Of being North to the South
Wanting everything you did without
And being either side of the extreme
And nothing in between

Now I'm paid, now I'm rich
Oh there goes the last of it
You won't see me around
I'll be hoarding every pound
'Cause I can't rub two pence
This veneer of affluence

I make my budget for the while
With a few nights on the tiles
But those few nights turn to days
Now I'm wasted all the way
I take my time but I always miss
Balance my charity with avarice

Here's to wanting everything to be the opposite of what is currently
Of being East to the West
Berating all the things you did your best
And being either side of the extreme
And nothing in between

Was I right to think I was more than this
I got a little bit embarrassed that I'm pretty badly balanced
Maybe one day I'll count the cost
'Cause I've got routine but I want chaos

Here's to wanting everything to be the opposite of what is currently
Of being North to the South
Wanting everything you did without
And being either side of the extreme
And nothing in between

Here's to wanting everything to be the opposite of what is currently
Only being off or on, and tell me is it really wrong
If I don't always practice what I preach
It's just a bit of hypocrisy
