Track Name: The Do Good Badlies - Precipitate
Is this rain ever gonna end?
I feel it soakin' through my brain
In a world of weathermen
It's always rain, rain, rain

I think it's been a hundred days
Since I've seen the sun
I think I'm goin' insane
Am I the only one?
So come on, tell me somethin' good
I need a pick-me-up
If I keep waitin' on the weather
I think I'm outta luck

I'm not ready to go down
But the TV, but the TV said
I'm not ready to go down
But the TV said I would

I think my shoes have had their fill
My toes are gettin' soaked
Has Mother Nature got her thrill?
Is this a cruel joke?
Oh come on, tell me somethin' good
I need a pick-me-up
If I keep waitin' on the weather

I'm not ready to go down
But the TV, but the TV said
I'm not ready to go down
But the TV said I would

I feel like I am drowning
Fillin' up on the wrong things
I feel like I am drowning
Fillin' up on the wrong things

Face it, I hate it, it's way overrated
I need to escape it, or I'm gonna die
Needy, I'm pleading, this water is greedy
Don't trust it, believe me - am I gonna die?

I'm not ready to go down

I'm not ready to go down
But the TV, but the TV said
I'm not ready to go down
But the TV said I would
Track Name: The Do Good Badlies - Ready To Be Strong
I know you're ready to be strong
You just need a little shove
It gets so lonely on your own
Just need a little love
I know the feelings that you're going through
'Cause not so long ago, I was just like you

I've felt the darkness in my heart
And then I've felt the light
I've felt the heavy steps and worried
I'd never sleep at night
I know the feelings that you're going through
'Cause not so long ago, I was just like you

Well someone gave me some advice,
Told me life is what you make it
It might never be ideal,
So when you get a chance, you take it
Oh listen to me kid,
When I am tellin' you that you are gonna make it
Oh you're gonna make it.

I've fought the demons that you're fightin' now
I thought they'd never leave
Said "I can't do this, it's too hard"
And that's truly what I believed
I know the feelings that you're going through
'Cause not so long ago, I was just like you

Well someone gave me some advice,
Told me life is what you make it
It might never be ideal,
So when you get a chance, you take it
Oh listen to me kid,
When I am tellin' you that you are gonna make it
Oh you're gonna make it.

I know you're ready to be strong
Even though you're feelin' weak
Got to keep lookin' for the colour
When things are lookin' bleak
I know the feelings that you're going through
But you'll see life's a beauty,
just like you
OHH it's BEAUTIFUL and so are you

Well let me give you some advice,
Tell you life is what you make it
It might never be ideal,
So when you get a chance, you take it
Oh listen to me kid,
When I am tellin' you that you are gonna make it
Oh you're definitely gonna make it.

I know you're ready to be strong.
Track Name: The Do Good Badlies - Brave
I am not strong enough to hold you up with my bare hands
So I will build you something that can
I'm absolutely not worthy of all of your time
I will try to give you
Even more of mine
I need a new way to tell you, so I guess it's a song
That I'm already here, babe
And I'm ready to be strong

I am not able to hide my emotions
I can't pretend I'm not afraid of all my fears
But I will weather any storm, I'll face any foe
I will be brave, for you, my dear.

I'm complicated, and I'm stubborn, and I know that it's hard
Sometimes to take, but you take me anyway
'Cause there is something here, can't you feel it in your heart
I would choo-choo-choose you any day
I will always try to admit it when I'm wrong
Oh I'll be right here babe,
When you need me to be strong

I am not able to hide my emotions
I can't pretend I'm not afraid of all my fears
But I will weather any storm, I'll face any foe
I will be brave, for you, my dear.

Oh I will give you all that I can get
Don't let the world wear us down just yet
I will give you all that I can get
Don't let the world wear us down just yet
If I am not enough I swear I won't stop you leavin'
But the love that we've got is one I believe in

I may not be able to hide my emotions
I can't pretend I'm not afraid of all my fears
But I will weather any storm, I'll face any foe
I will be brave, for you, my dear
Track Name: The Do Good Badlies - It's On Sale
Everything is easy and expensive
I just can't afford the cost
'Cause it's not money that we're givin' up
When we put all of our own time into someone else's stocks
Oh it's not money that makes us free
It's what we've bought
That makes us so incredibly lost
Let me buy into this manic depression
Why not?
It's on sale.
Let me dig deeper through the boxes and bins laid out with "CLEARANCE" taped to cover signs displaying "JAIL"
Oh it's pathetic, our wants, and our needs, and how confused we are about which is which
And which one we should heed
I've faced delusions you could never have too much or have enough
And no one thought that I was crazy until I'd woken up

I can't be bought (x6)
No one thought that I was crazy until I'd woken up

Everything is easy and expensive
I just can't afford the catch
We don't spend our time
Just kinda toss it in the trash
But hey we're human - we tend to do that
Oh it's amazing how we think we're so much better than the rats
'Cause we won't run a maze for cheese, but we'll do it for some cash
Let me buy into this panicked confusion
Why not?
It's on sale.
Let me be clear in my intention to distance fear from fact
I'm losing patience with the system, concerning this and that
Oh it's pathetic, our wants, and our needs, and how consumed we are by what is normal, and a calm blueish greed
I've faced delusions you could never have too much or have enough
And no one thought that I was crazy until I'd woken up

I can't be bought (x6)
No one thought that I was crazy until I'd woken up

Everything is easy and expensive (x3)
Do you not wonder why that is, or why it hasn't stopped?
Everything is easy and expensive
You won't do a thing to stop it
until you've woken up (x?)
You won't do a thing to stop it until you've woken up.

We can't be bought (x6)
No one thought that I was crazy until I'd woken up
