Track Name: Attention Whore
Never felt something like this before
Give me just a little more
It's in my head and its on the walls
Think I'm becoming an attention whore

I don't need no space to breathe
Power on, eyes to the screen
Anything more I'm gonna strive to be
Silence is my enemy

Never felt something like this before
Give me just a little more
It's in my head and it's on the walls
Give me just a little more
Feel it right down to my core
Give me just a little more
It's impossible to ignore
Think I'm becoming an attention whore
Track Name: Youth Allowance
Got no reason to complain
Got no voices in my brain
Spine works fine, I can hear and see
Got an 80 year life expectancy
They say the best things in life are free
So I'll freeload until the end of me
Don't have a job and I don't have a clue
All I want is for something to do

You're an adult now and it's great until
You notice from here it's only downhill
Need a house, a car, a job for the bills
And the all up cost is your total free will
Brought up on a diet of being told to aim high
I hope you didn't have stars in your eyes
I feel sorry but you've got to admit
Not much happens in a town with a two man mosh pit

Got hooker spit on my smile
On the day I'm meant to walk down the aisle
Puked up all my phlegm and bile
Then I got nervous and I drank a mile
10 years from now and I've got 2 kids
2 mortgages and a marriage on the skids
Throw in the towel, I wanna quit
Should of been happy with my 2 man mosh pit


You're an adult now and it's great until
You notice from here it's only downhill
Need a house, a car, a job for the bills
And the all up cost is your total free will
Brought up on a diet of being told to aim high
I hope you didn't have stars in your eyes
I feel sorry but you've got to admit
Not much happens in a town with a two man mosh pit
