"Bitterness Rising" as written by and Paul John Weller....
Unfit to live in, just about fit to burst
Like the banks of a swollen river
As bitterness does its worst
Working on your feelings, eating you all up
But you have to shake that shit to move on
An' let love carry you on up,

(it's just) bitterness rising, taking you off
Bitterness rising, you gotta shake those feelings off

Unfair to give in, and never changes course
If you have the choice before you
You gotta take it with a force

Or the past will take you, keep you from the truth
As bitterness rises, from the ashes of your youth

(it's just) bitterness rising, taking you off
Bitterness rising, you gotta shake those feelings off

Moments in time
Finding the space
To be what'cha wanna be
The things you never got
Life you never had
The dreams that you once dreamed

Finding the space, waiting your time
To be what'cha wanna be
Just be!

Or the past will take you, keep you from the truth
As bitterness rises, from the ashes of your youth

(it's just) bitterness rising, taking you off
Bitterness rising, you gotta shake those feelings off
