Track Name: Friday Night Champion
Awake on the ward
A night on the town
Hardly a pin drop making sound

Cold hard stare
Harsh orange flush
Witnesses, they know too much

Insulated from your hopes and dreams
Is that all this means?
Survival mode, asphyxiate
This whole week remains the same

And I don’t know how you wake up in the morning
I don’t know how you’re alone, in the night
But people are funny, pouring in
A Friday-night Champion

Creaking mattress
Work will set you free
That’s the first thing that you said to me

You take me to a time and place
As the tears stain down across your face
To the world you try so hard to have forgotten

Take me to my empire, silicone in the sand
Take me to my people, in the promised land
Take me to my fences, personified
Take me to my spirit, before we die
