about

In this song Gavin relates the story of Joe Pistone's transformation into the character of Donnie Brasco to Gav's alter Ego Brains Mcloud that conned the music industry. Despite the destructive path he created for himself he fell in love with the respect and adoration the character attracted and just like Joe with Donnie, he found it hard to break free and return to his real life.

lyrics

RIOT - there’s a fight for my mind inside my head
If the alcoholic wins then I am dead
Only one can survive
I’d Kill myself so the other one dies
So many nights of sex, yeh the Road is dope
but spider webs hell they grow and grow
Till you overdose, in Soho with no control
you can say I told you so

And I nearly died today, but I felt so alive today
If a lie is all it’s gonna take…
Then for me there’s no way out

You don’t underSTAND
I got a PROBLEM, its part of my PLAN
Up from BOTTOM I know exactly who I AM
I cant walk away with NOTHING I’ve got NOTHING
to lose and I’m NOT gonna STOP till I got what I want.


SO WHAT - yeh I’ve been with loads of sluts
SO WHAT - I don’t wanta sober up
SO WHAT - yeh okay I’m Going Nuts
SO WHAT - but most A&R’s are coked up

I’m losing it, Booze is oozing through my skin its luminous, Who is this I should be locked away
I spew more vomit than the bubonic plague.

And I nearly died today, but I felt so alive today
If a lie is all it’s gonna take…
Then for me there’s no way out
You don’t underSTAND
I got a PROBLEM, its part of my PLAN
Up from BOTTOM I know exactly who I AM
I cant walk away with NOTHING I’ve got so much to prove and I’m NOT gonna STOP till I got what I want.
