about

No Contest Grimsby, UK

Born and raised on a diet of Epitaph, Revelation and Fat Wreck the band continue to keep these influences alive and fusing in a harder aggressive edge at times makes for an interesting mix. April 2012 saw the release of debut album 'What's Past Is Prologue'. ... more

Track Name: The Face That Launched a Thousand Shits
Left with no excuses
Excuse me while I try to turn my back on reason
I'm going out my mind
Bending over backwards to try and make this work
Took the chance but lost again
We always end up hurt

Alive on the inside is what I told myself
Alive on the inside but living in hell

A slave to ambition
Beaten by our pride
Some times we should walk away from truths we deny

Ties that used to bind us
Bound us to the past
Memories of better days we always thought would last

Alive on the inside is what I told myself
Alive on the inside but living in hell

Instead we choose to linger on those memories we forged
Try to fake a feeling but the feeling can't be forced

A slave to ambition
Beaten by our pride
Some times we should walk away from truths we deny
Instead we choose to linger on those memories we forged
Try to fake a feeling but the feeling can't be forced
Track Name: Tabloids & Television
This sense of security is nothing more than apathy
We live from nine to five
Convinced ourselves we feel alive
On a steady diet of tabloids and television
So kiss goodbye to happiness and intuition

It's a fucking nightmare from which we'll never wake
Too afraid to question this
Too subdued to raise the stakes
The cycle's going on and on
Do exactly what you're told
Never stop, just move along

'Cause it's fine, it's okay
Keep consuming, keep it safe
Don't expect anything
You're better off that way

It's going on and on
We've been lied to all along
It's the same from day to day
We need a better way

The cycle's going on and on (we need a better way)
Track Name: Liam Neeson Fights Wolves......and Wins!
And we still walk for miles, and we don’t walk alone
Coz living isn’t living in the bleakest time weve known
And yes we ask forgiveness to repent all our sins
To cleanse the bitter taste of life; but Why we fighting?

Once more into the fray
Into the last good fight ill know
Live and die on this day. Live and die on this day

And we know why were fighting; To live our lives again
You cannot take this from us ‘cause I have faith my friend
You ask me for forgiveness with each step I take
Through the blood of fallen men; Why we fighting?

I’ve chosen a path
You’d be right to follow too
Forget about what’s happened
Coz life’s too much to lose
Track Name: Close Up
This ain’t theatre get out of the shadows
The lights are on so step on up front
The lines, you’ll learn as you go along
The performance you hope, Will be strong

Its time for your close up
You have to commit
Its time for your close up
This my friend ‘is it’
Its time for your close up
There’ll be no re-takes
Its time for your close up
Understand the stakes

It doesn’t matter how many watch
It doesn’t matter just what they think
others involved will bounce off you
make sure your performance does stay true

Its time for your close up
Just one last time,
Its time for your close up
While the light still shines
It’s time for your close up
It’s time for your close up
grab the mantle

This ain’t theatre
This is life
Open the curtains
And step out fucking side

Time for your close up!
