Track Name: First World Problems
Another Day.I sit here catatonic
No other way. I find it quite ironic
Believe that I can change things
but crushed from what my life brings
Another day and i'm left standing still

We think we're fighting at the system
Punkrock in fact we always miss them
we work from day to day
to live the right way
we knew that it was wrong this way

Contradiction. Can I practice what I preach?
Repetition. Bound by what is in my reach
There's no other way, we live from day to day
No hope or aspiration, a life annihilation

We think we're fighting at the system
Punkrock? In fact we always miss them
we work from day to day
to live the right way
we knew that it was wrong this way

We're fighting from the inside
We hope you'll do what is right
We're fighting from the inside
We hope you'll do what is right
We're fighting from the inside
We'll burn this mother fucker, to the ground

We think we're fighting at the system
Punkrock? Infact we always miss them
We work from day to day,
to live the right way
We knew that it was wrong this way.
Track Name: Deathcard
What the fuck are we here for?
Have we been dealt the death card?
With both feet firmly on the ladder
We’ve got to, got to kick it harder

Have we been dealt the death card?
Have we been dealt the death card?

Do you hear this transmission?
Got to break this repetition
Do you hear this transmission?
Got to break this repetition

Have we been dealt the death card
Have we been dealt the death card

Never never.. give up
I try so hard to make things work
Too many battles to brawl yeah
I’m in a war that’s never won.
A war
With my
Myself
A war
With my
Myself

You choose the wars we lose the lives
Your propaganda and filthy lies
Too many dead and there’s no prize
These are things that I despise..

This is our time
Track Name: Manipulated
What's left of you? The girl I knew
What's left of you? The girl I knew

Your individuality
drained away from your shell
Your confidence
and your happiness feigned

I fear for what you’ve become
trapped with nowhere to run
I fear for what you've become
trapped your life's come undone

Their good nature
is not gonna wash
manipulation
so far from the truth

I fear for what you’ve become
trapped with nowhere to run
I fear for what you've become
trapped your life's come undone

What's left of you
The girl I knew
What's left of you
The girl I knew
Track Name: Turning Chicken Shit Into Chicken Salad
Just stop Imposing on me
I’m not the man that you want me to be
I’ve walked a path that you have not seen
Real for me but for you; a dream
Ill take a pause; you’ll take a break
Everything you want just always take
I’ve wised right up, I’ve called your bluff
Its what I’ve found I AM ENOUGH

We never change; we live the life
We find our path. Avoid the strife
Just calm it down. We are enamoured
By turning chicken shit into chicken salad

You make the point to criticise Will I be good in your eyes
You were gone when I showed my rage
You’re not a kid; just act your age
Keep your bullshit away from here
Its fucking grey when you are near
All this posture has to stop
Cause when I leave ILL BE ON TOP

We never change; we live the life
We find our path. Avoid the strife
Just calm it down. we are enamoured
By turning chicken shit into chicken salad

We never change. We live the life.
Track Name: We're Gonna Need A Bigger Boat
Do you ever go back to the thoughts you once had
Did you make a break or leave the good for the bad
You’ll never change the way that life deals your fate
Unless you go out and give it all before too late

The path you take defines your fate
Don’t focus on past mistakes
Only you can change the choice you made
You’ve got to shout out loud
don’t be afraid

Don’t pay attention to those that put doubt in your mind
Don’t give a fuck and break out from the daily grind
Cast fears aside and run with life in its stride
These days are yours only you’ll instil your pride

The path you take defines your fate
Don’t focus on past mistakes
Only you can change the choice you made
You’ve got to shout out loud
don’t be afraid

Don't Be Afraid
Track Name: 28 Seconds Too Long
I am looking forward
You are not the same
Relinquishing our past mistakes
But you still hold the blame (LET IT GO)
Striving ever onward
Though it breaks our bond
Your static nature push aside
so we can move along

What the fuck just happened
We drift for evermore
Embrace the new beginning
Get up off the floor

You are looking backward
I still have a claim
It was you who made mistakes
deserving of the blame (FUCK NO)
You are just forgetting
Was you who broke the bond
My static nature builds me back
From violence and beyond

What the fuck just happened
We drift for evermore
Embrace the new beginning
Get up off the floor

Your way
My Way
We’ll stay
Together
Track Name: Memento Mori (Ode To Ed)
Standing toe to toe
These are who we know
Looking out for this
'coz when the darkness hits

feel the energy explode
it's the silence we corrode
but right now it is our time
what's mine is yours and yours is mine
just place your faith and you'll be fine

certain things have changed
faces rearranged
but just wait and see
the time and place right here

feel the energy explode
its the silence we corrode
but right now it is our time
what's mine is yours and yours is mine

just place your faith and you'll be fine
Track Name: With Friends Like These Who Needs Enemas?
We gotta stand for something
coz without this we're nothing
without hope we're dying
but it won't stop us trying
looking for a sense of purpose
that is what our life has taught us
grasping all that we can handle
never pull back outstretched hands

Do you breathe the same air as me?
The things you say I cant believe
Do you breathe the same air as me?
It's time to start. Set your mind free

You gotta stand for something
without this you're nothing
without hope you're dying
but it won't stop us trying
looking for a sense of purpose
that is what your life has taught us
grasping all that you can handle
never pull back outstretched hands

Do you breathe the same air as me?
The things you say; I can't believe
Do you breathe the same air as me?
It's time to start. Set your mind free

With friends like these who needs enemies?
Track Name: Static Motion
When will I see the day when good luck comes my way
So many times I’ve come so close but not today
I stand waiting at the airport when my ship is coming in
I missed the boat so many times
I want my journey to begin

Always waiting. So frustrating
Static motion. Keeping me here
Always waiting. So frustrating
Static motion. Keeping me here

Drag me down
Gotta get my feet back on the ground

When will I see the day when good luck comes my way
So many times I’ve come so close but not today
Setting sail with dreams of getting away from here
From all the worries of my days of my days

Always waiting
So frustrating
Static motion
Keeping me here

Drag me down
Gotta get my feet back on the ground
Track Name: His Name Is Robert Paulson
Our eyes are blinded to what we all should see
This new regime exists undemocratically
and we will strive to fight back til our last breath is spent
Just stand here solid with us and stay true till the end

We may lose the battle but we'll still win the war
'coz we're standing on the shoulders of those who've gone before

We don't expect heroics just effort on the way
You made the right decision history will tell this day
We stand here firm as brothers lining side by side
Looking to the future and all this starts tonight

We may lose the battle but we'll still win the war
'coz we're standing on the shoulders of those who've gone before

It was you who chose to fight us
Your strength will die away
You do right to fear us
You wanted it this way.
