Losing Touch 03:41
Losing Touch Verse 1 Wake up every day, go to work by the time the weekend comes I am burnt out Got nothing to talk about Life's dull, boring game goes on and on and on but we all lose the same We can’t start again Growing up really isn’t that easy Lose touch, friends hardly ever see me I used to think that I’d leave this town Now I wish I had more time around Chorus I’ll take my time back and I’ll go back to when I I didn’t have a clue If I could take an extra day off a week I’d Have some more time to share with you Verse 2 Sometimes I think why didn’t I take the other choice? It would have been the better one But I’d still be jealous of some If it could all just go the other way I swear I won’t look round and wish to go back again Just take me to the end My head is like a pendulum swaying from the good to the bad side But never on the inbetween I used to think that I’d leave this town Now I wish I had more time around
The World’s Gonna End Intro/Bridge We might as well do as we please because humans have fucked it We turn a blind eye, we’re not to blame for it The well’s run dry but we keep trying to take from it I think the world’s gonna end before I die Verse 1 We keep on kidding ourselves that the world is gonna right our wrongs And that we shouldn’t worry about a thing We’re running low on supplies but we keep on over indulging in everything But it’s ok as long as we’re not suffering Pre Chorus 1 The oceans are failing But we just keep on taking The trees are disappearing But no one seems to care about the world we’re destroying Chorus We’re a plague upon ourselves We’re at the point of no return but we don’t seem to fucking learn We’re a plague upon ourselves When everything’s gone with nowhere to turn Too little too late we’ll all just burn Verse 2 Saving the world won’t earn any money pump the life from the earth, cut the forests down to nothing But it’s ok as long as it’s not our home being destroyed It doesn’t matter when the planet starts to crack In a few short years there will be nothing there to frack Once it’s done there is no going back Pre Chorus 2 The sea it keeps on rising The ice caps just keep melting Soon we’ll all be drowning But no one seems to care about the world we’re destroying
Turn the tide Verse 1 You didn’t see in your vision, the inevitable collisions The seeds that you’ve sown have grown out of control and created these divisions Your “freedoms” are like prisons and still you just don’t listen Your attempts at control have invaded our homes, it screams out “join our system!” Chorus There’s a trigger in our minds to challenge each design No views we want to hide It’s down to us to break the walls of these divides We won’t be undermined We won’t walk through this life blind Don’t let opportunity pass you by It’s time to turn the tide Verse 2 This story is surprising, frustrations are rising We’ll hold and unite, remember what’s right and poise with perfect timing It’s not fear we will learn, knowing that the tide will turn With one common goal, in our hearts we all know That we deserve to be heard Bridge We’ll watch the world crumble at our feet We’ll break down walls to try to rebuild it
Dream State 03:39
Dreamstate Verse 1 I’m lost here in the middle of nowhere My body’s here but my mind’s gone elsewhere I couldn’t tell you what I spent the last week doing I feel tired but I’ve not been anywhere But in my brain, I’ve been everywhere Im acting out every single possible outcome Pre-chorus I need to get out of here I need to get out Chorus I can’t, fall out of my bed I can’t get these demons out of my head But if I dont then I wont find another way out of here Verse 2 Something’s wrong and I don’t think that I can escape I need help I’m stuck here in this dream state I scream out but I don’t seem to make a sound
Headspace 01:46
Kelly’s Missing Verse 1 Don’t wanna play these games with you Don’t wanna go all that way for you I’m not gonna pay to be part of that I don’t care who you’ve got to DJ Or who else you’ve tricked to play I’ve been doing this long enough to smell a rat Chorus Because Kelly You’re missing the point I wouldn’t play for you if you held me at gunpoint I’m not the only one to say Fuck you Kelly You’re missing the point I wouldn’t play for you if you held me at gunpoint I’m not the only one to say Fuck pay to play Verse 2 These emails are a bit much Your business plan is way out of touch You wont get a penny out of me I won’t play the 02 academy Not unless it’s booked up properly Not six indie bands all paying for the tickets up front
Little Things Verse 1 Sometimes I really hate myself I hate my job and I hate everybody else And sometimes It’s like a punch to the gut I was feeling alright but then my brain fucked up Pre Chorus I know I shouldn’t keep things bottled up So here’s a song about when I blow my top Chorus My brain goes into overdrive It’s always little things that I make up in my mind Verse 2 Sometimes It’s situations in my head That are never gonna happen but they’ll drive me to my death And I try I really fucking try To stop these conversations from happening in my mind
Nervous 02:56
Nervous Verse 1 It makes me nervous But in a good way I'm starting to see some light I'm changing Little by little My outlook is starting to look bright Pre Chorus And I’m starting to better myself For everyone around me I’ve been a burden I just want you to see Chorus That I'm starting to make a change Trying to keep my head held high Put my demons in their grave Verse 2 In the past you’ve all held out a hand for me to grab To pull me up and out of this hole But I've always got Close to the top and given up and fallen back in This time will be different I want it to be different
Struck 03:49
Struck Verse 1 I’ve been struck I’m in love I got you running in circles around my mind I’ve been hit By love But i know it won’t work for us right now Pre Chorus Because you and I We’ve known each other for too long And one of us will think this thing we got Just feels wrong Chorus I’ve fallen for a friend This story's been told time and time again I know she’ll be the first to pick me up But I’ll stay right here Where I’m in love Verse 2 You’re all I can think about I wanna spend all my time with you Just sit and relax and do nothing But enjoy the view I got a question for you that’s hard to ask I can’t move slow but I don’t wanna go fast Nah forget it, I’ll leave it, it’s not gonna work I’ll save myself from getting hurt
Race To Calais Verse 1 Driving down a motorway of a place I’ve never been Trying to read the signs for a town I’ve never seen This weekend I just needed to get away But I could have done without this race to Calais Chorus Well I’m flying down the motorway on a race to Calais The engine’s working over time trying to get me all the way Maybe I should accept my fate, pull over and stay This boat is leaving without me I’m stuck on holiday Verse 2 Stuck in a taxi scared I’ll miss the flight The airports are closing there’s no one in sight No flight for days to get back to the rain So I guess I’ll just have another week in Spain
Escape From Everything Verse 1 I know I should be happy I’ve got a roof over my head, But when I take a look out the window I just wish I’d stayed in bed Everyday I’m waking up and feeling like shit Drag myself through the day, I’ve had enough of it I know it will all come round but right now Everything seems to pull me down chorus Tonight, I'm gonna run away Hide away from all right and reason There's not a thing that I can believe in Tonight I'm gonna say goodbye It's not forever but it’s long been coming Just for one day can I escape from everything? Verse 2 Every time I grin and bear it Should I cut my losses and split? Feel so useless, I can’t take the strain I retreat and just take the blame All the time I let things get on top of me I bottle it up and carry it round with me I know I should take a deep breath Because all this stress will drive me to my death Bridge I'm done, I give up, I'm running up the white flag but even that's not good enough
