The Power of Negative Thinking

from by Eddie Japan

/

lyrics

Hey,
what do you see?
Is there a void to fill?
Is there a vacancy?
There's no hope in hoping
no secret for coping
these days

Hey,
you can't abide
by the wishful thought
and the brighter side
by smile purveyors
and have a nice day-ers
I say

Improve your life
through the power of negative thinking
Improve your life
through the power of negative thinking

Hey,
you've kicked and tried
to shake the gloom
to turn the tide
with more pills to swallow
and gurus to follow
in vain

Improve your life
through the power of negative thinking
Improve your life
through the power of negative thinking

Dreams don't come true
no matter what you say
no matter what you do

Improve your life
through the power of negative thinking

You're just a target
in a shooting gallery
Modern life will pull you down
there's no way to break free
Tell your inner Norman Vincent Peale
that he just can't win
Take this to heart
and your life can begin
Life can begin

Dreams don't come true
no matter what you say
no matter what you do

Improve your life
through the power of negative thinking
Improve your life
through the power of negative thinking
Improve your life
through the power of negative thinking
Thinking...thinking...thinking...

Eddie Japan Boston

Boston’s Eddie Japan combines ‘60s baroque pop influences with the less restrained tendencies of ‘80s alternative guitar bands to create a soaring, dramatic sound that stands apart from the beats and banjos of today’s indie scene.
