The Lyrics

I can't remember which of my friends it was who recently used the phrase "Embrace the suck" as a reaction to all sorts of things going wrong in life. But it was such an evocative form of words, I felt I had to embrace it, and encase it in a song..
It's all gone wrong, your master plan
The shit has hit the fan
The paddle gone, you're up the creek
Give in? That's for the weak

You can't win, you can't beat
Anyone, but you don't bleat
You think the o-nly way to be
Is pissing on adversity

Whoa, you like to think that you've a surplus of guts, oh yeah
No loser, you can't see yourself a-missing the cut
Whatever life throws at ya, you're embracing the suck

Your luck's run out, but you don't care
You won't crack, or fold or swear
One heart beat: you're back so fast
Another kick right up the arse - you face disast-

-er all the time
Oblivion's a state of mind
Whatever goes- your head won't drop
You reckon you'll come out on top

Whoa, you like to think that you've a surfeit of pluck, oh yeah
It's closer to the truth to say you don't give a ***k
When defeat comes, you will face it, you're embracing the suck

Try to encase it, you're embracing the suck
Never replace it, you're embracing the suck
Chin up, embrace it, you're embracing the suck
Chin up, embrace it, you're embracing the suck
