Track Name: It's Turbo Time
Where did the year go
And what else did I miss?
How little did we catch up
How further apart did we grow?

And yet again it's clear that time has won
Once kids trying not to grow up
We used to be so young

But those days seem so long ago
And it shows
Once again you've come undone
But you're not the only one

To feel that everyone's let go
And I know
What it means to be grown up, feeling down and out
Do we have anything left to talk about

Besides our jobs and how the future's filled with doubt
How the future’s filled with doubt
Seems that all I do is long for long ago

But it’s useless
To do this
With bills to pay, appearance to uphold

Time keeps running faster
There's no time left just for laughter
Only impending disaster
Yet again, just like the time before

And we thought that it would last
But have the good times fully passed?
Or are there more to make
What does it take to live past yesterday?
And if I can't do that
The present value of the past is all I'll have left

Nothing left to talk about
Oh how we’re filled with doubt

And to this very day I long for long ago
The kid inside me isn't ready to let go
And still, to this very day I long for long ago
Once again I'm out of luck and out of hope
And it shows

Time keeps running faster
There's no time left just for laughter
Only impending disaster
Yet again, just like the time before

And we thought that it would last
But have the good times fully passed?
Or are there more to make
What does it take to live past yesterday?
And if I can't do that
The present value of the past is all I'll have left

Filled with doubt, filled with doubt
Just like yesterday, I'm out of luck and out of hope
No matter how hard I try I just can't let go

But it’s useless
To do this
With bills to pay, appearance to uphold
But it’s useless
Useless to do this
With bills to pay, appearance to uphold
And it shows, but I know that’s how it goes
Track Name: Bring a Friend to Work Day
It’s hard to live like this, trust me I know
You’ve had a bad year, but have not let go
They say that good things come to those who wait
Yours will come too, they’re just running late

Sometimes it’s hard after a fall
Trust me this happens to us all
I've been there, needed a friend
Know I'll be there once again

This time it’s not me that matters
My mistakes I can't undo
No matter what
You will pull through

It’s clear to me, you're not okay
I wish that I could make this right someday
What can I say, what can I do?
All I can be is here for you (here for you)

Though it feels like nothing seems to go your way
It'll all work out one day
At least that's what they say

So while you’re waiting for that day to come
I’ll wait with you, because you need someone
Like you’ve done for me so many times before
It’s the least I could do – wish there was...

More good in this world
More people like you
Can’t thank you enough
For all that you do

There’s more to be done
It’s easy to see
Wish I could do more
But I’m just me

It’s clear to see you're not okay
I wish that I could make this right someday
What can I say, what can I do?
All I can be is here for you
Here for you

Wish I could do more
Wish I could do more

So hard after a fall
It happens to us all
Here I am
'Cause you needed a friend

"I want a perfect life"
Is all they ever say
Who cares about perfect
I'd be happy with okay
Track Name: The Pursuit of Crappiness
No I can't relate
To anything you say
If this is what you live for
Then you’re wasting life away again
(Away again) away again
Buying what you’re sold
You’re too controlled
To realize the lies
So carefully fabricated

Maintain control (maintain control)
There’s no hope for us now
There’s no hope for us now

Maintain control (maintain control)
There’s no hope for us now
There’s no hope for us now

No longer humans, just consumers
And our values are the price we pay
But I’m sure that we’ll regret this one day
We’re all just so consumed with ourselves
Now it's all for some but none for all
And this will be our downfall

‘Cause it's a concept that I'll never understand
Reduce all that you’re worth to the value of a brand
When what you own is all that you are in your mind
You ignore those that live below the poverty line

And do you find that every ad you see
Is saying what you need to be happy
Is just within your reach?
Are your beliefs your own?
I thought you were more switched on than your cellphone
You’re so captivated

Maintain control (maintain control)
There’s no hope for us now
There’s no hope for us now

And is this real? (maintain control)
There’s no hope for us now
There’s no hope for us now

No longer humans, just consumers
And our values are the price we pay
But I’m sure that we’ll regret this one day
We’re all just so consumed with ourselves
Now it's all for some but none for all

And now we're falling down
A system designed to leave those most in need behind
How do you maintain peace of mind?
Find your place, find yourself, before you turn into everyone else
We all feel numb and wonder why…
Track Name: Never Don't Give Up
This place was never home
So on my own I left for something new
Sold my things and packed my bags
I said goodbye to the people I once knew

This place just seemed to move so slow
And there's no room to grow
A race in which I did not believe
Knew it was time to leave
Focus on what I need

I'm down and out running on empty
Just like the day before
These city lights no longer tempt me
Now I long for something more
That I won't find if I stay in this town
If I ever come back, see you around

Sorry for the times I let you down

And as I saw the world my horizons grew
Learnt things about myself no one ever knew
Gained so much more by wanting less
Freed my life of selfishness

I'm down and out running on empty
Just like the day before
These city lights no longer tempt me
Now I long for something more
That I won't find if I stay in this town
If you're here when I get back, see you around
Track Name: Smells Like Cheap Spirits
You were lonelier back then but that was only the beginning
Got a double dose of delirium derived from daily drinking
Now you're sinking
And you're so far out of reach and out of time
So if you can't find yourself, I know where you will always be

There are times I wanna give up, say fuck it and walk away
You don’t even know self-control
Just keep going down that rabbit hole and waiting for the day

When all your friends will pick you up
And bring you back to better days
Starting over is always harder
When you're still stuck in the same old ways

Do you feel alone?
Do you need somebody to talk to?
I'll pick you up when you fall

The poison might drown the pain
But still hurts when you come to
And realize the ones you're hurting
Are the same ones there for you

No such drinks for better health
Now it’s up to you to make or break a promise,
A promise to yourself

And maybe it’s a matter of time
Until you find
Just how hard it is
To work out how to stop
When you don’t know where to start

‘Cause in good time I know that you’ll decide
To do this for yourself
Stand firm, not be torn apart

Cheap spirits
Taste awful
More so at 10am so
How bad can it be
To just swallow the truth?

Know you're not alone
‘Cause I know that your friends are there for you
We'll help you find your way home

The poison might drown the pain
But still hurts when you come to
And realize the ones you're hurting
Are the same ones there for you

No such drinks for better health
Now it’s up to you to make or break a promise to yourself

And I have hope
Though you have doubts
With help, I know
You'll make it out

So put the bottle down
Before you drown
In your self-punishment

Learn to forgive yourself
To ask for help
And how to be content

Please know I never meant to get angry at you
At the time I didn’t understand what you were going through

One day you’ll beat this though it might take a few years
And that whole time, you can count on me and I’ll always be here

Until you fight your demons off, until you’re finally free
If you just can find yourself I know you'll make it out
