"Strugglin" as written by and Adrian Nicholas Matthew Thaws....
In hell I'll be lost in the layers of weakness
All around the surface brainwashed with the cheapest
Strugglin', strugglin', strugglin'
Brainwashed with the
Hallucinagenics in my system
Like, I'm trippin'
Many switch in
Switch on, switch off

Here I'm lost
I'm lost
In the name of weakness
Brainwashed
All around the surface brainwashed with the cheapest
Exhausted by the mundane
Simplicity no longer plain

Strugglin', strugglin'
Strugglin', strugglin' with the insane
I'm strugglin'
Strugglin' with the insane
Feels like I'm trippin', skippin'
Hallucinagenics in my system
Like I'm trippin', skippin'
They say I'm insane
I'm strugglin', strugglin'

Darkness and warmth
Obvious and mysterious
Magical colors

Mystical shadows
Mystical shadows
Thought with no meaning
They say I'm insane
Label me insane
But I'm more normal than most
But I'm more normal than most
Strugglin' so hard

I just need to remain
(?)
'cause I'm strugglin'
To remain
I know I'm the truth
'cause we are the truth
See what we want to see
Please, please tell me what I want to hear
Hear what we want to hear
Strugglin' so hard
I'm strugglin'
I took a ride, yeah
Roll with the bullets to survive, to survive, to survive
Self preservation
Roll with the bullets
Just to survive
Self preservation
Self preservation
Keeps the crowd alive
Keeps the crowd alive

Strugglin', strugglin'
They, they say I'm insane
I'm strugglin', strugglin'
They say I'm insane
Strugglin'
I'm more normal than most
Strugglin'
I'm just strugglin'
Strugglin'
Mystical shadows
Strugglin'
Mysterious, the obvious
Strugglin'
They say I'm insane, I'm strugglin'
Strugglin'

Switch in, switch on, switch off
I'm lost in contradiction
Feed me my visuals
A flashback, a flashback from way back
I'm strugglin', strugglin'
Do you know what its like to struggle?
Do you, do you, have you, have you ever had to struggle?
Strugglin', strugglin'
Roll with the bullets to survive
Strugglin', strugglin', strugglin' to remain
They label me insane
But I'm, I'm, I think I'm more normal than most
Strugglin' with the remains
Brainwashed with the cheapest
And if pain makes me stronger
Then how am I stronger?
There's a fate for the late
But the late must wait longer
Strugglin', strugglin'
Roll with the bullets to survive
Self preservation keeps the crowd alive
Strugglin'

In hell I'll be lost in the lairs of weakness
All around the surface brainwashed with the cheapest
In hell I'll be lost in the lairs of weakness
All around the surface brainwashed with the cheapest
Exhausted with the mundane
Simplicity means no longer plain
Strugglin' with the insane
Darkness and warmth
The obvious and mysterious
Magical colors, mystical shadows
Half thought with no meaning
They label me insane
They label me insane
They label me insane

    General CommentThis song made me hate Tricky first time I heard it, but it's probably my favourite track, now! The music fits with the lyrics better than any song I've ever heard. It SOUNDS like being inside someone's mind slowly going more and more insane and struggling to keep control! Lyrically I guess it's say he's struggling to keep control of himself. But the final section is him saying that he may be struggling but everyone else has it so much worse because they're the ones living awful lives, brainwashed with the cheapest, exhausted with the mundane, and he may be drugged up and insane but at least he's living life.

    I love the reintroduction of "many switch in switch on switch off" from Black Steel.

    General CommentHard track, I needed long time to like it. For me the narrator used some drugs and found himself on the verge of commiting suicide.

    General CommentI for one immediately fell in love with this track. And most of this album, for that matter.
