Track Name: Home
There is a punk scene in the UK
without it i'd go insane,
Still I feel the minority
until i'm at a show again

There is a town called Carnoustie
And it's one hell of a hole,
still my friends they are good to me,
so i'll call this my home

And i'll kick, kick, i'll kick the walls down
fight back, i'm fighting back
kick down the walls and fight back
Track Name: One Day
There were four kids standing screaming go,
all hyped up for the punk rock show
a situation you wanna know,
he looked at me like i did something
but all i wanted to do was sing,
about situations that i'm getting in

But everything i saw that night was a blur,
can you remind me what i was doing there,
graduated life school with a degree of intent,
he spent

One day i had a dream of starting a band,
and these people that I play with they always understand,
the build up is essential, and you can't go wrong with it,
cause if you're standing, doing nothing the crowd just turns to shit
Track Name: Money Falls Down The Drain
This is a story about my friend,
he loves to get wasted and go out on the bend
he saves all his money 'til the dawn of weekend,
Friday night has come, hit the pubs with his friends
He hits on the ladies, offers wine, 'white or red?'
as he's killing his liver, they will mess with his head
his visions gone blurry, another pint down his neck
then the less he'll remember with the more he spends

From beer, to whiskey, the girls, are easy
as the money falls down the drain
From stella, to JD, acting cool, Mr. Sleazy
as the money falls down the drain

Let me continue the story about my friend,
it's Saturday morning and he's still in his bed,
he wakes up at noon and he feels his head,
then he says he's never ever gonna drink again.
He looks at his wallet and his moneys at an end,
he's got nothing to do 'til the next weekend,
he takes some resolve then he hopes it will end,
but he had a good time and he'll see us next weekend

This is a story about my friend,
he loves to get wasted and go out on the bend
he saves all his money 'til the dawn of weekend,
Friday night has come, hit the pubs with his friends
He hits on the ladies, offers wine, 'white or red?'
as he's killing his liver, they will mess with his head
his visions gone blurry, another pint down his neck,
then he stumbles, then he falls, then he hits his head
Track Name: Remember The Time
There's a difference between you and me
I've got life, got loyalties
you like to follow the magazine trends
I'd rather hang with friends,
I've wasted two years now,
now all we see are crowds,
living my life my own way
without this burden hanging around

Remember the time, that I told you,
you're attitude sucks and I don't like you,
when everything's done, I'll have some fun,
i'll party on
You replied with this, I'm immature,
but I don't give a fuck, and I take the piss,
for punks are all we, ill go spend some time
with my family

there's a difference between you and me
I've got a social personality,
you like to follow all the trends,
I'd rather chill with my friends,
I've wasted my time here now,
all i wanna see is crowds,
living my life my own way,
without this burden hanging around

and then she said
yeah, I'm fucked in the head
nag nag nag fucking nag
and then I said
yeah, I'm fucked in the head
and you're the one who smashes my guitar off the door and leaves it lying there on the floor
Track Name: The Doctor
The doctor did suggest,
that the medication I was taking maybe wasn't the best,
he prescribed me,
something to ease the pain,
and he reminded me that other people,
they might feel the same

What have they done?
They've ruined our fun,
they've took our drugs and drink away
What's your game?
And why won't you let Maxwells Dead stay?

Moving on next thing,
the thing about these punk bands, is the singer can't usually sing
un-tuned guitars,
our heads are in the stars,
even though me and Muzz can't sing, at least we're doing our own thing

What have they done?
They've ruined our fun,
they've took our drugs and drink away
What's their game?
And why won't you let Maxwells Dead stay?
