Poke Da Squid - Nick’s knack and the bad luck karma shoes:

I’ve been lost
For far too long
It’s been ages since my skin’s, been kissed by the sun
Every minute, and hour, and days that’ll pass
I dig deeper, in this shithole called my life

What the fuck have I been doing, with the last few years of my life?
It seems
I’ve been spinning tires on this empty street
I don’t know how I did it
What tricked my best friends to think?
That this dream could become reality
I just realized that they’re
Just as blind as me
Didn’t notice our ship sink into the sea

I tied my desperation's into these lines
And I know that we’re probably all still wasting our time
But I feel that there is
Nothing better to do
If I give up now I would be quitting you

What good could I ever bring?
With a wounded heart and dreams
The only thing I have to my name are these songs
I wasted the spring time of my youth
Down the drain
Now I’m taking all my loved ones down with me
