'Cause this world swallows souls 
And when the blues unfold 
It gets cold silence burns holes 
You're going mad 
Perhaps you always were 
But when things was good you just didn't care 
This is called irony 
When you most need to get up you got no energy 
Time and time shit'll happen 
The dark shit's unwrapping 
But no-one's listening your mates are laughing 
Your brethren's fucking and then you start hating 
Your stomach starts churning and you mind starts turning. 
So smoke another draw 
It won't matter no more but the next day still feels sore 
Rain taps on your window 
Always did tho but you didn't hear it when things were so-so 
You're on your own now 
Your little zone you were born alone and believe me you'll die alone 
Weed becomes a chore 
You want the buzz back so you follow the others onto smack

Just trying to stay positive 
Just trying to stay positive 
Just trying to stay positive 

Feels nice and still 
Good thing about brown is it always will 
It's easy, no-one blames you 
It's that world out there that's fucked you 
You know less of a person and if God exists 
He still loves you 
Just remember that - the more you sink the further back from that brink 
Maybe you've lifetime scars and you think tattoos might be more fitting 
But who's picking? 
Searching for yourself you find demons 
Try and be a freeman and grasp that talisman 
'Cause your the same as I am 
We all need our fellow man 
We all need our Samaritan. 
Maybe I'm better looking than you tho 
Maybe I've got more dough - but am I happier... no. 
Get the love of a good girl and your world will be much richer than my world 
And your happiness will uncurl

Stop dreaming 
People who say that are blaspheming 
They're doing nine to five and moaning 
And they don't want you succeeding when they've blown it 
And you idols - who are they? 
They too dreamt about their day 
Positive steps will see your goals. 
Whether it's dollars or control, feel the gold. 
I ain't helping you climb the ladder 
I'm busy climbing mine. 
That's how it's been since the dawn of time 
If you reach a cul-de-sac 
The world turns it's back 
This is you zone, it's like blackjack 
He might get the ace or the top one 
So organize your two's and three's into a run then you'll have fucked him son 
And for that you'll be the better one 
One last thing before you go though 
When you feel better tomorrow you'll be a hero 
But never forget today. you could be back here 
Things can stray 
What if you see me in that window? 
You won't help me I know. 
That's cool, just keep walking where you go. 
Carry on through the estate, stare at the geezers so they know you ain't lightweight 
And go see your mates 
And when they don't look happy 
Play them this tape 

Just trying to stay positive 
Just trying to stay positive 
Just trying to stay positive 
Just trying to stay positive 

I hope you understand me 
Just trying to stay positive 
I ain't no preaching fucker and I ain't no do-goody-goody either 
This is about when shit goes pear-shaped 
And if you aren't or ever have been at rock bottom then good luck to you in the big wide world 
But remember that one day shit might just start crumbling 
Your bird might f*ck off or you might loose your job 
It's when that happens that what I'm talking about will feel much more important to you 
So if you ain't feeling it, just be thankful that everything's cool in your world
