Sobering Up · Lyrics

Becomes Unstoppable EP

I think I’m sobering up
I’ve got stuff to do
And things to change
A world to save
Today’s the day, this is the age


I’ve been working for a while now, to
Summon in me somehow
The motivation I require
To make my move in life
It’s my turn
I’ve no candle left to burn
I’m at my wit’s end
Man, I have everything that I need to build my masterpiece, but


All I need is
All I want is
Time


All I need is
All I want is
The next line


They ask, “Do you want paying?”
Hell yes, I wanna be paid
I’m still waiting for that last cheque from eBay to clear
“Can you play for the door?”
That’s not enough any more
I’ve binned so many bills that they’re pushing policemen through the door


All I need is
All I want is
A cash advance


All I need is
All I want is
My big chance


All I need is
All I want is
Studio time


All I need is
All I want is
To get signed


I used to drink in a bar
Where they put banknotes on the walls
And I watched the heads of the heads of the states
Of all the nations of the world
And I smiled while sinking my last pennies into drink
And I stared as the leaders of the free world
Smiled back at me


I’d just ignore my problems until they disappear
But there’s something in the air tonight that I just can’t
I just can’t breathe
I wanna be free


Yeah


I’ve been working for a while now, to
Instigate somehow
The recognition we deserve
For singing in this world
And it’s okay
But I find it very strange
They make it hard to find your way
These days, I don’t know how to say


That all I need is
All I want is
To go far, far, far


All I need is
All I want is
One more
One more guitar


I think I’m sobering up
