Lyrics:

My Half Full Glass of Optimism, has spilled on my shoes,

My Speculation of adulation, has gave me the blues,

I awoke this morning just to find that i'm yesterdays news,

& the illusion of my confusion, has left me feeling quite abused...

Coz hospital Attention, was a recent apprehention,

and though my mind was unravelling, the lights are still on,

Coz i'm makin' it on my own.

Somebody told me all the seasons happen in one day,

If that's the truth, why's this black cloud following me,

the holes in my clothes match the holes in my weary shoes,

the streets are cold and damp and wild,

so tell me why am i feeling so amused...

Coz hospital Attention, was a recent apprehention,

and though my mind was unravelling, the lights are still on,

Coz i'm makin' it on my own.

No more daily grind, as I let myself unwind,

I take the dark out of night time,

and i put it into the day, coz I got nothing more to say...

(Shine on me, the sunshine on me)

Coz hospital Attention, was a recent apprehention,

and though my mind was unravelling, the lights are still on,

(Shine on me, the sunshine on me)

hospital Attention, was a recent apprehention,

and though my mind was unravelling, the lights are still on,

Coz i'm makin' it on my own.
