Track Name: Boy In The Man Suit
Let me introduce you to the boy in a man suit.
Started life out fine, mind and body synced in time
And he lived a happy childhood at the pace of all his friends.

Year after year he'd grow taller again,
Stronger and wiser and just like his friends.


The boy in the man suit,
Lost little soul.
He's the boy in the man suit,
Doesn't want to grow old.


As time passed by leaving no reasons to pry,
Our boy come adolescent drifts knows not the reason why,
He gets on with most but can't rest with anyone,
Little know our restless souls predicaments begun.

As he daydreams of adventure, peers and brothers evolve,
So he buries all his dreams and waits for hope to dissolve.

Won't be the boy in the man suit,
Lost little soul.
Won't be the boy in the man suit,
He'll learn to grow old.


Let me introduce you to this shell of a man,
Fuelled by merely embers of a once fluorescent plan.
He drinks to make amends with the life he chose to lead
And day by day drips away to nothing his soul bleeds,

Until one day his dormant ways through music reignite,
Well he hit the road and played some shows and much to his delight,
He realised he's just not the same as all his peers before
And those childish dreams of adventure he would now endure.


I left my home I left that crowd and moved into a van
To comfortably continue as the boy within the man.

Yes I'm the boy in the man suit,
Lost little soul.
I'm the boy in the man suit,
My soul won't grow old.

Yes I'm the boy in the man suit,
Lost little soul.
I'm the boy in the man suit,
And I'll find my way home.
