Lyrics

These 20 digital hugs are only warming up my fingertips
Sticky plaster on a sinking ship
Desperation man I stink of it
So I force another fake smile for the camera
As I sink a bit
Deeper into social media induced depression
I've seen it all before but still I never learn my lesson
Yet this image I'm projecting is so effervescent
Keep my real feelings on the inside keep 'em guessing
Sometimes I want to break down and cry
In fact fuck it, I DO break down and cry
And I don't even know why
It's like I wake up and my get up and go
Has got up and gone
Just as I was thinking we were getting along
Turns out I'm really not that strong
Thought I had it figured out
I must have gotten it wrong
It's like I've written all the lyrics but forgotten the song
And now I'm sat here nodding along
Just singing like

Hey Boy
What you gonna do today boy?
Put down that screen and play boy
The world is outside your window
No no no
I said Hey Boy
What you gonna do today boy?
Put down that screen and play boy
The world is outside your window
No no no

How many days is this daze gonna last?
Sitting on my arse eating ice-cream Mars
Watching every episode of House of Cards
Just to keep my mind busy like an ounce of grass
How many days am I gonna stay alone?
Just sitting on my own watching Game of Thrones
Trying to find connection in my smart arse phone
When all I really wanted was a place called home
I'm pretty certain that I don't need to take their drugs for this
All I really need's bare hugs for this
Friendly faces, wide open spaces and a place to rest from all of this
Pessimism it's a prison I find myself in
But I'm the only guard in the whole building
It's time to plan my escape
Before I waste another day in this place
That's why I'm saying

Hey Boy
What you gonna do today boy?
Put down that screen and play boy
The world is outside your window
No no no
I said Hey Boy
What you gonna do today boy?
Put down that screen and play boy
The world is outside your window
No no no

And I know that it's not just me
In fact I'm getting off lightly
All things considered I'm generally winning
And I'm just having a bad week
So know that it's not just you
There's more than one shade of blue
We're all just doing our best to enjoy this mess
As we struggle on through
Struggle on through
As we struggle on through
Ehhh

Hey Boy
What you gonna do today boy?
Put down that screen and play boy
The world is outside your window
Hey Boy
What you gonna do today boy?
Put down that screen and play boy
The world is outside your window
