"Motivation" as written by Midge Ure, William Currie, Steve Strange, Rusty Egan and Dave Formula....
What's the difference of never knowing at all
When every step I take is always too small
Maybe it's just something I can't admit but lately,
I feel like I don't give a shit

Motivation such an aggravation,
Accusations don't know how to take them
Inspiration's getting hard to fake it
Concentration never hard to break it
Situation never what you want it to be

What's the point of never making mistakes
Self-indulgence is such a hard habit to break
It's all just a waste of time in the end
I don't care so why should I even pretend

Motivation such an aggravation,
Accusations don't know how to take them
Inspiration's getting hard to fake it
Concentration never hard to break it
Situation never what you want it

Nothing's new, everything's the same.
It keeps on dragging me down, it's getting kind of lame
I'm falling further behind, there's nothing to explain
No matter what you say nothing's gonna change my mind

Can't depend on doubt until the end
It seems like leaving friends has become this years trend
and though I can't pretend, afraid to be this way
It's not the same but who's to blame,
For all those stupid things I never said

Motivation such an aggravation,
Accusations don't know how to take them
Inspiration's getting hard to fake it
Concentration never hard to break it

Motivation such an aggravation,
Accusations don't know how to take them
Inspiration's getting hard to fake it
Concentration
Situation never what you want it to be

Never what you want it to be.
Never what you want it to be

    General CommentI don't think it sounds like Blink 182, for example it's got a break-out bassline at times, and theres nothing about boobs or penises in it!

    Now let's see Mark Hoppus do that!
    Cone's a damn good bassist it's a shame he doesn't break out from the power chords more.

    General Commentto anyone who has ever been intoxicated on THC... you all know what i mean you can relate to this song. why bother doing something productive when its so much easier to sit on your ass and do the least strenuous activity.
