Track Name: For The Punx
Here we go down the same old road again,
don't even know where I am goin',
pass them faces that I've seen before yet again.
Little Milly was on the corner sellin' dope,
her life has got no hope,
and Jimmy held his head in shame
and hopes that it's not the same

Livin' on a warning streak,
public enemies freak,
hangin' out with all the drunks,
doin' it for the punx

When I'm with them, I do the things I wanna do,
A lot of them my mum wouldn't want me to,
drinkin' beer, smokin' weed, doin' shit like that
now I'm out livin' like a rat.
Get the beers down, doped cigarettes,
10 minutes I'll be knocked out.
And all i see is gypsy family language,
consists of too far out.

Livin' on a warning streak,
public enemies freak,
hangin' out with all the drunks,
doin' it for the punx!

drinkin' beer, smokin weed, doin' shit like that,

hangin out with all the drunks
Doin' it for the punx!
Track Name: 45 Days
45 days have come and went,
Now on this lifestyle I, would like to spend
Another day or two
Reminicing of the things that you wanted me to

And It's Okay I know its not your fault,
You've got to learn to do things for yourself,
Because I'm lying in a rut, but I just can't get enough
This music, Its doing It for me.

And now I know, why I'm lying on the floor
In disgust, you stab me in the back
Fuck that I'm gone, and I'm never coming back
You should have thought of that the first time,
You stabbed me in the back

Cause I think you know by now,
What you're doing to me somehow
Because I'm lying in a rut and I just can't get enough,
This music, it's doing it for me

But I think you know by now,
What you're doing to me somehow,
Because I'm lying in a rut, and I just can't get enough,
This music, it's doing it for me
This music, it's doing it for me
Track Name: Last Night
This is how I tell the story, of the time I had last night
Wish I had encountered someone who convinced me to do right

Cause now I feel like I am on my own
A thousand miles from my home
The feeling in my gut, It's time that I give up
I don't think that it's time just yet

This is how I tell a story of the time I had last night
When i woke this morning, knowing it wasn't looking bright,
All I wanna do, is get fucked up every single day
But at the rate I'm going, this band, will never get paid

Cause now I feel like I am on my own
A thousand miles from my home
The feeling in my gut, It's time that I give up
I don't think that it's time just yet

Now I'm on my own,
A thousand miles from home,
A feeling in my gut, says
Its time that I give up
Track Name: On The Floor
You try too hard, you're full of shit,
and all this false pretence,
I don't know why you act like this,
you're beginning to lose friends.
The first time that I invited you
into a place that I call home,
We didn't know what to do with,
so we left you all alone.

On the floor,
A place that you were happy that's for sure,
Unexpected madness in a place forever more,
Now we'll have fun,
Gettin' out our minds with everyone,
I wish you would see,
That you're stressin' me!

First time that I invited you
into the place that I call home,
you had a beer too many,
sat over there on your own, like I said before..
You were a mess
and your effort was poor,
to be honest with you,
I'm glad that you had to go

Through the door,
A time when we were happy, thats for sure
It's bad that you had to leave,
but we're happy that you had to go
Now we'll have fun,
gettin' out our minds with everyone,
I wish you could see,
that you're stressin' me!
Track Name: I Just Wanna Say (Fuck You)
The EDL,
conservative,
the scum of earth,
well I just wanna say.
Hangovers,
on bus & trains,
with overdrafts,
well I just wanna say fuck you!

And I just wanna say Fuck you,
And I just wanna say fuck you,
And I just wanna say fuck you!

Economy,
stocking trade,
and money claims,
well I just wanna say.
Religion,
terror threats,
an oil hunt,
well I just wanna say fuck you!

And I just wanna say fuck you,
And I just wanna say fuck you,
And I just wanna say fuck you!

Now the higher ups have got their ways,
but we aint on the same page,
and when all is said and done,
well I'm just gonna say...

Rising tax,
Where's it spent?
behind our backs,
well I just wanna say,
parliament,
government!?
It's all the same
well I just wanna say fuck you.

And I just wanna say fuck you,
And I just wanna say fuck you,
And I just wanna say fuck you!

Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you, fuck you!
Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you, fuck you!
Track Name: One Day
There were 4 kids standin' screamin' 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
bout situations that I'm gettin' in

And 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 startin' a band,
and these people that I play with,
they always understand,
the build up is esssential and you can't go wrong with it,
Cause if you're standin', doin' nothin' then the crowd just turns to shit

And 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
Track Name: Feeling Guilty
Why should I feel guilty for the things I've done?
Instead I'll forget about them, then go write them in a song.
Understand the situation that we've got at hand,
I'll have a laugh about it, then discuss it with the band.

Cause every time I look at you, I get this feelin'
that I don't know what to do,
Cause I can't help the way I feel about you, right now!

I once took this chemical and I didn't know it's name,
and then then these crazy things started to happen in my brain,
Once obtained and in the frame, the choice I don't have back
Intervening subjects in which I can always chat

Cause every time I look at you, I get this feelin'
that I don't know what to do,
Cause I can't help the way I feel about you, right now!

Then you look at me from the corner of the room,
and I'm sittin' on my own here wonderin' what to do.
Should I get up and do somethin?
Think I will sit here and I'll do fuck all (fuck all)

Then I get up off my chair,
with this conversation I would like to share
with you what just went on

Cause every time I look at you, I get this feelin'
that I don't know what to do,
Cause I can't help the way I feel about you, right now!
Track Name: Chemicals
Somethin's wrong with the Chemicals we took that night!

A different feeling in my brain, something it don't feel right
And if you have a problem with the way I act, then deal with it some other way
Talkin' about some shit that they've done before
A crate of beer, ten whiskey's, I'm on the floor
And could you help me back, to my fucking room
Because I seem to have lost my shoe

Cause every now and then I feel so insecure inside
I, was just trying to find
The ways in which I've come to see the prophecy of life
Wasn't it very nice?

Another thing about the chemicals we took that night!

A different feeling in my brain, something it don't feel right
And if you have a problem with the way I act
then deal with it some other way
Talkin' about some shit they want to do
A crate of beer, some munchies, a brain to stew
now I have a problem with the way you act,
go tell someone new!

Cause every now and then I feel so insecure inside
I, was just trying to find
The ways in which I've come to see the prophecy of life
Wasn't it very nice?
Track Name: Liar
Well i never thought I'd see this moment come up in my life,
my best friends an asshole, he's filled up with lies,
he's ditched me, he's ditched us, his own family,
his mothers in tears wondering where he will be

You walk around thinking its nineteen-seventy-six,
thinking you're cool but you look like a dick,
your attitude changed when you met that roar,
thinking you're hard without a backbone

And we all know...

You're a liar, You're a liar and you're full of it!
You're a liar, You're a liar and you make me sick!

You lied and you never owned up to anything,
you let her manipulate anything you did,
when I first seen you, i tried to hide the hate,
until i realised that you were not my mate

When anyone asks what you were about,
I'm honest, I tell them, you fucked us about,
now that you're gone, the stress has moved on,
what you think is right is totally wrong

And we all know....

You're a liar, You're a liar and you're full of it!
You're a liar, You're a liar and you make me sick!

We are the ones who stood by your side,
you won't believe what we sacrificed,
we put up with you through day and through night,
you and your roar have wasted our time,
you have made the biggest mistake of your life.

So now we are standing, stronger than ever,
true colour's show and you're gone forever,
the unity strikes, the music goes on,
the adventure continue we stand as one.
Track Name: Self Importance
The dude had finally had enough,
no direction and livin' rough,
he might realise this but he fucked up,
how will he ever sort this stuff

And i hope that you are listening,
I'm only gonna tell you once,
I'm sick of hearing all of the same excuses from you,
you're full of, self importance
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
