Pointless 05:45
I don’t understand my purpose in this life When I was young I used to care Attention seeking is a long and lonely path All my hope has disappeared I further fade with each future day I failed and I blame myself My heart is cold The story is old I’m giving in Because it’s pointless to write another song tonight It’s pointless to word what will never be heard Because it’s pointless to share and to think someone will care The truth is more or less It’s all so pointless How you long to reconstruct your broken heart You remind me of myself I strived for things that only brought me misery Piece by piece you lose yourself I further fade with each future day I failed and I blame myself My heart is cold The story is old I’ll never win Because it’s pointless to write another song tonight It’s pointless to word what will never be heard Because it’s pointless to share and to think someone will care The truth what I said It’s all so pointless I further fade with each future day I failed and I blame myself Because it’s pointless to write another song tonight It’s pointless to word what will never be heard Because it’s pointless to share and to think someone will care I got inspired again It’s all so pointless Dreams become nightmares It’s all so pointless

God of nations at Thy feet In the bonds of love we meet Hear our voices, we entreat God defend our Free Land Guard Pacific's triple star From the shafts of strife and war Make her praises heard afar God defend New Zealand E Ihoa Atua Men of ev'ry creed and race Gather here before Thy face Asking Thee to bless this place O nga Iwi Matoura From dissenshion, envy, hate And corruption guard our State Make our country good and great Peace, not war, shall be our boast But, should foes assail our coast Make us then a mighty host God defend our Free Land Lord of battles in thy might Put our enemies to flight Let our cause be just and right God defend New Zealand Ata whaka rongona Let our love for Thee increase May Thy blessings never cease Give us plenty, give us peace Me aroha noa From dishonour and from shame Guard our country's spotless name Crown her with immortal fame Kia hua ko te pai May our mountains ever be Freedom's ramparts on the sea Make us faithful unto Thee God defend our Free Land Kia tau to atawhai Guide her in the nations' van Preaching love and truth to man Working out Thy Glorious plan Manaakitia mai Aotearoa God defend our Free Land God defend New Zealand

I know the score don’t waste my time I’m trapped and no one that I know can save me Another piece of me it cracks then breaks then falls away I know the time don’t keep the score My mental state has gone from calm to crazy Another piece of me it cracks then breaks then falls away If you found and saw the real me it would change things Over time the truth will soak through Now I need you cause I’m falling to the ground in a million pieces Cause there’s no easy way out There’s no easy way out There’s no easy way out that I can see I got my photo against the wall A price was set but no-one came to bail me Another piece of me it cracks then breaks then falls away I got two minutes for my call I’ll play it cool when they interrogate me Another piece of me it cracks then breaks then falls away If you found and saw the real me it would change things Over time the truth will soak through Now I need you cause I’m falling to the ground in a million pieces Cause there’s no easy way out There’s no easy way out There’s no easy way out that I can see I paid the price I did my time I learnt my lesson and it may have saved me I see the writing the wall I wrote this song for you, it’s not about me Now you’ve found and seen the real me - does it change things? Over time will the truth soak through? You don’t mean to but you’re falling to the ground in a million pieces Cause there’s no easy way out There’s no easy way out There’s no easy way out that I can see Cause there’s no easy way out There’s no easy way out There’s no easy way out that I can see

I never thought it would come to this my friend but it has and we can’t change it I never really thought of asking why is there a reason for these things? I will never forget the past, the good times outweighed the bad I never got to say goodbye, and I haven’t said it yet I wanted the perfect song but I don’t have it I always thought it would take a lot to make me cry and it did and I still feel it Nothing we face in the journey of this life can prepare us for mourning I will never forget the past, the good times outweighed the bad I never got to say goodbye, and I haven’t said it yet I wanted the perfect song but I don’t have it I’ll never write the perfect song you deserve I’ll never write the perfect song I’ll never write the perfect song you deserve I’ll never write the perfect song I never got to say goodbye And I haven’t said it yet I wanted the perfect song but I don’t have it Goodbye my friend Goodbye my friend I’ll never write the perfect song you deserve Goodbye my friend I’ll never write the perfect song you deserve Goodbye my friend

Let us understand now you have no pain We hold you dear as if you were here If we could hear, we know you’d say "It’s another beautiful day" It’s another beautiful day Memories will fade Tears will dry away But our hearts will never change We hold you dear If we could hear, we know you’d say "It’s another beautiful day" If we could hear, we know you’d say It’s another beautiful day Another beautiful day
