Anthony Green – “The More You Get, The Less You Are”

(unofficial lyrics for the new official release of this previously unreleased track from Will Yip’s ‘Off The Board’ compilation CD)

There’s a bridge over the other side of town
That I’d walk over if I want to see my friends
But it burnt down.

So I never saw any one of them again.
And in their place I filled with things that I thought I
I could hold on to more.

I was only just a child
I didn’t know what to do with what I had
So I… So I threw it away.

I know now
The more you get the
The more you get
The more you get
The less you are

There’s a million different sides of me, she said
There isn’t any point in ever getting angry
So I try not to, best that I can.

I knew a couple people in the program
I knew a couple people who stayed in
And they won’t ever leave

I was only just a child
I didn’t know what to do with anything I had
So I gave it away.

And I know now the more you get the
The more you get
The more you get
The less you are

We know now the more you get the
The more you get
The more you get
The less you are

Oh I need to surrender, but I can’t see a thing
And I need to believe you, but I don’t know how to

Want to surrender, could you show me how to?
I need to believe you but I can’t feel a thing.

I feel nothing.
I feel nothing.
I feel…
I feel…
