Track Name: Part I: Relapse
coal gives me energy
wisdom gives me sight
leave a little at the bottom
to soften up the fight

a chemical imbalance
imposed upon the weak
how i needed to be stronger
so lather rinse repeat

It's always simple
never clean
it's always easy
but the journey is obscene

i've found an answer
for the darkest night
even though my load is heavy
when i'm loaded it's so light

you come round here
i'll fix it for ya (x2)
you come round, you come round, you come round here
i'll fix it for ya

{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}{}

'ol jack leather
breaks into a crowd
and in a moment he's absorbing you

a great big chauffer
makes him on the prowl
like an ogre with a point of view

he's not old
but he's grey
and he breathes bewitched and decay

he's a big tall man
with superfluous frame
its a dangerous occasion
like a rat in a cage
let him go

'ol jack leather is a dangerous man

what will you do at the end of the day
biding the time waste the whole day away

where will you go when the fun is all gone
oh take you're time
mmh mmh mmh
don't be long

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

wake up (x4)

wake up and wipe the tears from your eyes
wake up now no need to wear a disguise

wake up and put on your sunday shoes
wake up now you ain't got nothing to lose

wake up
wake on up
Track Name: Part II: Resolution
you're asking all these questions
while you lie fast in your bed
you're-a twiddling your thumbs
while you got a high price on your head

you know all of the answers, yes ya do
but ya still be asking why
you're an eight ball boy
till the day you die

************************************************

hey boy, what will you do
hey boy, what will you do
poor boy, what will you do
with you

hey boy, what will you do
young man whatever will you do with you
poor boy, what will you do
with you

life ain't worth livin' if livin' is all
we can do and all we can do
is wait for the call

-breakdown-

hey boy, what will you do
hey boy, what will you do
what will you do, what will ya do, yea
with you

waiting
can't you see I'm waiting
for someone
to pass along the way

lady, dear lady
can't you see i'm lazy
let's spend the night
and sleep away the day

la da da da la da da da da da la da da da da da la da da da da da

hey mister man
won't you please take my hand
and lead me around
for as long as you can

hey boy, what will you do
hey boy, what will you do
what will you do, what will ya do, yea
with

with you

Why don't you take the time to get to know me
instead of walkin' round just like you own me
sunny days are few and far between

ya think ya got me wrapped around your finger
wait until that fleeting feeling lingers
then again, things are never what they seem
