Michael Mercer If there's any justice, this album will feature heavily in 2019 best album lists (though I appreciate such lists are subjective).

All You Have Is All You Need is a wonderful album from start to finish. There's moments of real elation in here that send shivers down the spine.

Beautiful. Favorite track: Mountains.

Track Name: Running Second
You’re pushing harder, pushing harder than you ever have
Running on empty should pull over but there’s no time for that, no time

On the starting block adrenaline is pumping high
Terror in the water muffled scream just follow the blue line

So much hate in this skin
So much weight in this win
Don’t you know, don’t you know

There’s nothing to prove
There’s nothing to be scared of
You are enough

You try to do it all you give more than you ever get back
It's you who puts the pressure on, can't blame anybody else for that

You caught a glimpse unzipped and stepped out into the light
You took the long way to find out there was no need to apologise

So much hate in this skin
So much weight in this win
Don’t you know, don’t you know


There’s nothing to prove
There’s nothing to be scared of
You are enough (x 2)

There's nothing to be scared of
Just enjoy the view
You don't need to please anybody else,
You’ve got nothing to be scared of

Just enjoy the view
You don’t need please anybody else
You don’t need to be anybody else
Track Name: Fear of Missing Out
I’ll have a drink for you
You’re gonna be a Mother soon
I’m so happy for you
I just thought that I’d be next in line
It’s ok though I’m having fun
And while there is no one who’s dependent on me
I gotta live it up
But why do I feel like I’m missing out?

How was your trip to Sante Fe?
It’s great you got some time away
You looked so happy in the photos
I’m sure they didn’t do it justice

Why do I feel like I’m missing out?
When everybody’s missing out
Why do I feel like I’m missing out?
When everybody’s missing out

What have I been up to?
Clearly not as much as you
I look at my life and I wonder what I’m doing wrong

Will I follow suit?
Try to be a Mother soon
I’m under pressure from the ticking clock
I question is this what I want?
Is this what I want?

Everybody is missing out
So why do I feel like I’m missing out
When everybody’s missing out

Some other life
Some other life

Why do we think we’re missing
Why do we think we’re missing
Why do we think we’re missing
Why do we think we’re missing out

Why do we think we’re missing
Why do we think we’re missing
Why do we think we’re missing
Why do we think we’re missing out
Track Name: Society
What am I doing with my life?
I feel like I should be hitting some kind of mark
The man, the house, the car
But it all feels kinda off

Outside walking the streets at night
Trying to get these fears out of my mind
You don't know what it's like
Trying to please people all the time

I've always done exactly what I'm told
But that ain't gonna work for me no more

I blame it on Society
Trying to tell me who I'm supposed to be
Why they always gotta put these clothes on me
The ones that care the most well they aren't even close to me

I blame it on Society
I need a break from this anxiety
I just want someone to love me quietly
For who I am for real and not for who I try to be
I blame it on Society

Sittin in a luke warm bath blowin bubbles, thinkin razor thoughts
My body's achin I'm all alone I call you up and I cry for home
But what is home anymore?
What is this life we're looking for?
I feel I want to make it known that I might disappoint you
And I'm sorry if I do

I've always done exactly what I'm told
But that ain't gonna work for me no more

I blame in on Society
Trying to tell me who I'm supposed to be
Why they always gotta put these clothes on me
The ones that care the most well they aren't even close to me


I've always done exactly what I'm told
But that ain't gonna work for me no more

I blame in on Society
Trying to tell me who I'm supposed to be
Why they always gotta put these clothes on me
The ones that care the most well they aren't even close to me

I blame it on Society
I need a break from this anxiety
I just want someone to love me quietly
For who I am for real and not for who I try to be
I blame it on Society
Track Name: Island
No harm done
No you can do no wrong
But you are not your own Island
You gotta land on either side
So give us something
Give us something

We don't really need much from you to keep us running
Hunt gather by day don't need you to keep us coming

You can hear well enough to hear my call
Piece it together baby on your own
You can hear well enough to hear my call
Piece it together you'll be seeing it all

You can hear well enough to hear my call
Piece it together baby on your own
You can hear well enough to hear my call
Piece it together you'll be seeing it all

You think we'll grow?
Still there are things we don't know
Cause we are not a known Island
We've never swum those shores
We've never swum those shores


We don't really need much from you to keep us running
Hunt gather by day don't need you to keep us coming
Track Name: Mountains
In my bed pull up the sheet
Hoping this time, I go straight to sleep
Does not appear in the light of day
Nocturnal creature this bird of prey

Hosting mountains on my shoulders x 4

Dozing off nearly asleep
I host the trigger I queue the kick
It's not terror it's terrifying
It's not frightened, it's frightening

I'll lie awake x 6

Hosting mountains on my shoulders
They're heavy tonight
Mountains on my shoulders
Hold me tonight


Mountains on my shoulders they're heavy tonight
(I know you'll be gone by tomorrow)

Mountains on my shoulders, hold me tonight
(I know you'll be gone by tomorrow)
Track Name: Suzie
Deep in summer, summer night
Windows open sorting the flies
Same temperature in as outside
Time to wander down the mountain side

Onto the main road, lit by the moon
Our conversation is this nights tune
Heat rising up from our shoes
The earth's not cooling anytime soon

I think I hear a car
That engine noise is coming fast
I think I hear a car
Don't let Suzie run ahead, don't let Suzie run ahead

We squat down in the bush below
To make sure we can't be seen by the road
We're still calling for her to come to our side
I can feel the panic, the whites of my mother's eyes

The cars headlights growing brighter still
It's peaked the crest, it's coming on down the hill
Swipes by so fast as we hold our breaths
Hearts pumping fast through the walls of our chest

Return to black, except the moon and the devil tail light
Hoping she'll return sometime in the night

Please do not slow down
Keep moving one hundred by the hour
Please do not slow down
Keep moving one hundred by the hour
Please do not slow down
Don't let Suzie run ahead
Track Name: Wont You Come Along
Awake inside of me
The lion has been sleeping
Imprisoned now it's free
Has over thrown the Empire
And yes I've been reborn
I can't see past my own walls
Into the silver lining

Oh won't you come along x4

They're just human you know
And they do not think ill of you
Those projections you show are unnecessary too
There’s dimensions that you can't see
You only see what you wanna see
All that is required is for you to set you free


Oh won't you come along x4

Stand up, stand up
It's you you see who's walking out the door
Ulysses is walking out the door
Track Name: Unlock The Vault
I'll unlock the vaults
One at a time
I know it will divide us
For a little time

I'll unlock the vault
I'll spin the wheel
Heave open that door
Let's see what you got

Down, you've been so down
Carrying that weight
Why don't you throw it away?
Bound, by this your bound
Why don't you throw it away?

I know it hurts
I know it hurts so let’s be rid of it
I know it hurts
I know it hurts so let’s be rid of it

Unlock the vaults
One at a time
Let's take out the trash
Lover of mine

Unlock the vaults
Throw me a line
Let's take out the trash
Lover of mine

Sound, you make that sound
I know it means
You don't have to say nothin to me
What we've found way down
Doesn't need to stay
Let's fucking throw it away

I know it hurts
I know it hurts so let’s be rid of it
I know it hurts
I know it hurts so let’s be rid of it


Unlock the vaults
One at a time
Let's take out the trash
Lover of mine

Unlock the vaults
Throw me a line
Let's take out the trash
Lover of mine
Track Name: Clear Air After the Storm
Sketched out a draft
It was a pretty picture
Needed some love
But we were running on empty
You and I had it all in front of us
We just didn't know

Brewing in parallel
Pretending everything was fine
Something felt ill
Not your fault, not mine
We felt the push from the outside
It didn't feel right to live that kind of life

We are the clear air after the storm
The rain has washed away all of the dust
That sucked the life out of us

Took out the stain
But it still left a mark
A constant reminder
Our little piece of art
Will be one of many more
Here's to many more


We are the clear air after the storm
The rain has washed away all of the dust
We are the clear air after the storm
The rain has washed away all of the dust
That sucked the life out of us,
The life out of us
The life out of us

No one needs us here we are still young
Got all that we need here we are still young

We are the clear air after the storm
The rain has washed away all of the dust
We are the clear air after the storm
The rain has washed away all of the dust
That sucked the life out of us
The life out of us
Track Name: All You Have is All You Need
Long time coming
No time to waste
This is what we've wanted, wanted
Don't make me choose between this and her face

Long time running,
Blindly joining the dots together
This is what we wanted, wanted
Don't make us choose between this and his face

Try not to look beyond where the eye can see
All you have is all you need
All you have is all you need

Take a deep breath
Take a deep breath

All you have is all you need
All you have is all you need
