Irreversible State Of Mind

This song is very much Carousel’s twin – its my other fast and funky, upbeat song with rapid fire lyrics that contains some pretty negative, honest words. I wanted to write something a little funk inspired (its never been recorded with a band so when that happens I’m hoping for some funky arrangements) but with some clever quickfire wordplay in the vein of Jason Mraz and Ed Sheeran. I really like it, although I still always get the words wrong live!

I’m waking up all the time, with a little nagging feeling always crawling at the back of my mind

I’m living this life of mine, filled with negativity and no activity to fill the time

I’m making my way through life, no protection from rejection a reflection of my lows and highs

I’m hoping to start a fire that will fuel my creativity with positivity and desire

All my senses keep on reeling, I don’t know why

If all I do is fall then why am I so high?

Whoah oh oh oh, making a living is unforgiving and a matter of pride

Whoah oh oh oh, all of my reasons and the seasons they can change oh in the blink of an eye

Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh, trying to shake all my mistakes keep positivity alive

I couldn’t do it if I tried, an irreversible state of mind

When everything falls apart, I eat too much and drink too much to try to fill a heavy heart

I never did try too hard, but every time I think I’ve found a way I end up back at the start

I cannot live in the past, so I move towards the future as if someone cut the brakes on my car

And things are not built to last, so I gravitate, procrastinate, appreciate whatever they are

All my senses keep on reeling, I don’t know why

If all I do is fall then why am I so high?

Whoah oh oh oh, making a living is unforgiving and a matter of pride

Whoah oh oh oh, all of my reasons and the seasons they can change oh in the blink of an eye

Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh, trying to shake all my mistakes keep positivity alive

I couldn’t do it if I tried, an irreversible state of mind

Sometimes its a struggle

Yeah sometimes it gets so hard

But there will always be a melody

To help us remember who we are

Whoah oh oh oh, making a living is unforgiving and a matter of pride

Whoah oh oh oh, all of my reasons and the seasons they can change oh in the blink of an eye

Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh, trying to shake all my mistakes keep positivity alive

I couldn’t do it if I tried, an irreversible state of mind

Whoah oh oh oh, making a living is unforgiving and a matter of pride

Whoah oh oh oh, all of my reasons and the seasons they can change oh in the blink of an eye

Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh, trying to shake all my mistakes keep positivity alive

I couldn’t do it if I tried, an irreversible state of mind
