about

Ever had that little guy in ya head calling the shots? The title song of the album, Little Man In My Head, is about that negative voice in your mind who tries to tell you you can't do cool shit. Who puts poo-coloured lenses over your eyes and makes you look back at your memories with regret, and your future with fear. Well he's wrong, and this is a song of hope and happy thoughts to show you that you don't need to listen to him! Your heart is smarter and knows better!

lyrics

I'm going to have a little talk with my head
Tell him to start using logic and reason instead
Of these worries that he puts in a hat
Adds a pinch of paranoia, a puff of smoke
Pulls the rabbit out
The rabbit of regret

Hey little man in my head
I’m talking to you and you're mumbling back
Stumbling over the reason you said
You'll never be happy, get over it man
But answer me this do I not have a choice
To wake up and stand up and silence that voice
It's taken me so long to realize I can
It's over little man get outta my head

Thoughts float in the river
And they pick up little scraps
Trapping bugs that don't belong
And all those cutting blades of grass
You ask them where they been
Where were you while I slept
But the thoughts they never have no answer
Leaving you drowning and shipwrecked

Hey little man in my head
I’m talking to you
And you're mumbling back
Stumbling over the reason you said
You'll never be happy
Get over it man
But answer me this do I not have a choice
To wake up and stand up and silence that voice
It's taken me so long to realise I can
It's over little man get outta my head

So now I'm listening to my heart instead
It's been broken, caught fire, fell over and bled
And yet it’s still yelling the right words at me
Still telling a story of hope and be happy
It's found me my love and it's owning my thoughts
Catching all the good ones and throwing back the small
And it's cast a net wide for the right memories
Put the rabbit back inside the hat and that's where he'll stay

Hey little man in my head
I’m talking to you
And you're mumbling back
Stumbling over the reason you said
You'll never be happy
Get over it man
But answer me this do I not have a choice
To wake up and stand up and silence that voice
It's taken me so long to realise I can
It's over little man get outta my head
