Track Name: Shut
It's like I've failed my teens
Now I'm failing my twenties
High on anxiety
Low on attention
Thrown into a world
Where everyone acts cold
Nobody mentioned
There's a million and one things
That we'll never make sense of

Tell me
You ever feel let down
Cos I can't stand it
I won't sit down
While underhanded
Self satisfied clowns
Ruin everything

I don't know why
I keep my mouth shut most of the time
When I burn inside
Regret sets in
Now I'm thinking up
Perfect responses
That will change your mind
And I'd change the world
One person at a time

Remember when things
Used to happen to me?
Yeah I hated that too
Short on motivation
To step on dry land
Every piece of news
Is as bad as the last
Slow motion
Crumbling to dust
Are we numb to the outrage
I don't want to be defenceless

How much
Can you tolerate
Cos I can't stand this
Adolescent state
While I wait
Til the damage is irreversible
Track Name: Holiday From Your Life
All look inwards as they march to the centre eyes shut
Tourist commuters picture picture postcards
(When they’re in they want out)
and pretend that they are better than their boring roots suggest
Celebrate the markup on things they’ve bought for so much less
Trading hours in cubicles for a week sat by the pool
Look at them they’ve got it all

When we get home we pretend
That we’re the only ones in a sea of dickheads
Do you ever think we could compete
With the myths and the glamour that your so enamoured with?

Do you need a holiday from your life?
Do you need to get away from youself?
Are you content in misery
I’ll take you some place you’ve never seen
There’s things down the road you won’t believe

Past chain pubs and car parks
Futures are carved in stone
Grey chunks of wasteland will be here long after we’ve gone
You wont escape your fate in the meat market
There’s too many people you know
A race for individuality
You’ve got to do it alone
Building a community
Takes some vulnerability
But you’ve got nothing to show
Track Name: Carefree
Used to be I could live carefree
But now that’s all stopped
Things aren’t looking up these days
I wish I didn’t care but
I do and I try to do more than get by
Scrape my knuckles, grit my teeth
Cos I don’t know what to do
So I’m not just passing through
Hoping there’s something beneath
The surface of all this
I’m not just a witness
In the death of all I hold true
And pointing and moaning’s not the best
That we can do
No one wants to be forgotten
But I’ll happily rot in anonymity
If I’m not alone when I throw these stones
Call me a cynic, I’ve no problem being happy
But it still gets to me
When everything is lumped in a hierarchy
It’s the norm to spend our lives
Competing for a prize
On someone else’s terms
When they’ve already won all the money and the bombs
And the only way out is emulating them
What can one person do
Fight their own little corner
Until one day we all see some truth
Before we end up jaded?
No one wants to be forgotten
But I’ll happily rot in anonymity
If I’m not alone when I throw these stones
Shit happens, my mind is feeling empty
But I can still pour it out
Seems we could go on forever
Without another care about
The world beyond our own doorstep
But I don’t think that’s for the best
And I hope I’m not alone
Yeah, I hope I’m not alone
Track Name: Unicorn In Uniform
They’d have to be just like you
To be perfect but then you’d hate them too
You collect mixed metaphors
You hoard well-worn cliche
Cling as if they’re yours
In what you think and what you say
But it never amounts to much anyway

Stuck in structure you
Smashed every mirror and
You fetishise the truth that you can’t touch
Nothing can touch
No-one can touch you now

As sinister and soft as a spell
Laziness or devotion
You’ve got no way to tell
The worst conspiracies
You’ve never heard
The ones that ring so true
You deny every word
Just rehashing some-one else’s snap defence
Track Name: Lost On The High Street
I’m lost on the high street again
Looked down on by the signs
Plastic and glass don’t break their stare
No matter how you try

Forget my life away from these
These streets paved with denial
Pipe dreams and peer pressure
I want to get out

I could just give in right now
Start life of compromise
But someone holds me back and says
It’s going to be all right
Track Name: Bitter Boys
Feel like I’m running out of melodies
To express my thoughts about my enemies
If you think you’re right I’ll show you to the door
It’s to the left
You say everything I do is to hurt you
Not every move I make concerns you
Must be nice soaking up that sympathy
That you’re still getting.

I kind of liked you til you said that
You seemed okay to me
I don’t always see it coming
It’s calm before the storm and then I’m
Blown away.
That’s the price I pay

Go ahead and bottle it up
Put the lid on
I’ll just smash it open
Let it spill out so everyone can se
That the problem isn’t me, clearly
My room’s still a mess
You think nothing’s changed since you left
I beg to differ, I could not be more happy

Only have angry songs written about me
Bitter boys making noise between their bedroom walls
Gonna collect them up and make a mix cd
Probably get more radio play than me
Track Name: Don't Waste Your Breath (Ft.Perkie)
We built ourselves a prison with invisible walls
Go looking for them it’s your own fault
Hard as you try you’ll never forget them
Live in denial or they wont protect you
Crafted an empire unconciously
Out of greed prejudice and petty tyranny
Won’t pretend its natural, there’s better ways to be
That dont support themselves off of murder and greed

Wont waste my breath
Justifying the crimes of bruised and battered egos
Or waste my time internalising their past mistakes
It’s all we’re supposed to know
And oh it shows dont you feel manipulated
I wont sit and take it

I won’t ever trust them
Handing me a shirt and tie for all my dreams to rust in
Cos life’s too short life’s too short, to piss away
On a way of life so damaging
Obsessed with the threat of this debt we’re managing
Life’s too short to piss away

The odds are stacked against us
Competing for work that dont pay much
Or at all when it used to waged
Just piling more useless skills on our cvs
Begging and pleading for a foot in the door
Somewhere we never wanted to be
Lining up while they dole out more misery

Why waste your breath
When you could be inflating someone elses ego?
Why waste your breath
When you could be clinging to this wreckage with a passion
Cos it’s all you’ve ever know?
Track Name: Cat Hair
Notice myself getting ruder and ruder
Planning responses in my head to
Bastards I know I’ll meet, on the street, in the pub, at university
People are so scared of the F word
As if equality offends them and hits them hard
Knocks them back in their seat, I won’t accept defeat
But find myself silenced instantly

But if you’ve already decided to be that closed-minded
I’m not gonna pry, I’m not gonna try, I’m not gonna cry over it

They say I’m difficult and I’m lazy
What do they know? Have you been doing surveys on me?
I won’t rise to your discussion board of bullies
People are so scared of me, that’s what they say
Do my opinions haunt you at night?
Did I hit a nerve or just disturb a web of lies you took so long to build?

But if you’ve already decided to be that closed-minded
I’m not gonna pry, I’m not gonna try, I’m not gonna cry over it
Track Name: You're Not My Number One Bastard
If you’re so different why is your voice just an echo
Spitting dominant view after dominant view
You use your sex like it’s a weapon
It’s so easy to play that card
But who’ll respect you
When you’re at war with half the world
And the other half well they just let you

Play the victim
But then the next thing
I'm losing count of all the stupid shit you’ve said
Yeah they’re all bitches
Well i guess i’m a bad witness
Cos i wont pat you on the back

If we’re so important
Just fragile egos lashing out
Why don’t we all self-destruct?
Everyone else is so much dumber
Then why do you run for cover?
It’s the easiest thing you could do

We were in this together
But some time apart
Brought out the insecurities
And now i’ll never feel at ease
With you again
As if i ever did
Track Name: Purge Your Inner Tory
Sun in my eyes i can feel
At home in this brick and concrete
Iknow most of it was never meant to be
The way it turned out

You take it as a given
Saying it’s human nature
To fuck up anything good
The only thing wrong with human nature
Is we listen to people like you

There’d be nothing left to aspire to
If you had everything your way
Trampling problems and contradictions with every step
Covering your tracks
Covering your dirty tracks

Tory boy you cant solve anything
We all know your hiding something
Tory boy money controls everything
But you’ll never have any real friends
I've heard your wet dreams
Dividing and conquering everything you see
Til it’s you and your mates running the country
You really think it will make you happy?
