about

This is a weird little song that I came up with one rainy afternoon. It's a sort of whinge about someone who's way too negative and is always trying to make things difficult and complicated. The answer to everything is right in front of your eyes.

When the backing vocals come in with a "Hey" I always think it sounds like a David Bowie manoeuvre. It's either from The Laughing Gnome or All The Madmen, I can't remember.

lyrics

What did she think she was going to achieve when she launched that plate at your head?
And now that you think of it why did you ever believe a word she said?
If she's just as bad as the others why is it you set yourself up for the fall?
Maybe you're secretly craving disaster and that's to blame for it all

Hey! Give me a break
There must be an easier way

The answer to everything is right in front of your eyes
So pick it up and brush it off and don't look so surprised
The good looking man with the seven step plan to success is selling you lies
The answer to everything is right in front of your eyes

It can't be that easy cos something goes wrong with everything that you do
It isn't ironic it's absolute crap and it always happens to you
Why do you waste all your energy trying to figure out who you can blame?
Maybe your deepest and darkest desire is to sit around and complain

Hey! Give me a break
I'll tell you the easier way

The answer to everything is right in front of your eyes
So pick it up and brush it off and don't look so surprised
The good looking man with the seven step plan to success is selling you lies
The answer to everything is right in front of your eyes
