Cos 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 f*@king 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 though 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.
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 f*@ked 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.
Cos your the same as I am
We all need our fellow man
We all need our Samaritan.
Maybe I'm better looking than you though
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.

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

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 your 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 aint 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 organise your two's and three's into a run then you'll have f@cked 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 aint 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?
I aint no preaching fucker and I aint 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 aint feeling it, just be thankful that everything's cool in your world
Respect to BC

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