"Self Help" as written by and Oliver/paridjanian Knights....
Breathe in good, breathe out bad,
Remind yourself of the things you have, it's easy.
Pull a smile onto your face,
Understand that making friends is easy.

So tell yourself it will be ok,
Remind yourself that you're not just in it for the money.
The end, the end, the end, the end,
My friend, where's the end?
You're up, you're down,
You're in the ground in the end, my friend,
Where's the end?

I've found myself, deep down in the dirt,
Got to get myself to my feet yeah.
I tell myself it will be ok,
Remind myself that I'm not just in it for the money.
The end, the end, the end, the end
My friend, where's the end?

    General CommentGREAT track.

    When I first saw the title of this song, I was afraid it would be about self help books. But hearing the actual music and seeing the lyrics, makes me think it's about someone who is in despair and trying to get over it. Although I'm not sure what the line "Remind yourself that you're not just in it for the money" means.
    The first four lines, by the way, are definately typical quotes from self help books :-)

    General CommentIn response to jolarti...Maybe the song is about struggling to find success as a musician. You'll come upon some hard times where nothing seems to be working out, but you have to keep telling yourself that it will be worth it in the end. That would make sense with the "Remind yourself that you're not just in it for the money" line, like you're also in it for the 'love of the game.' Could be a lot of things, but I really love this song & Turin Brakes in general.
