Track Name: Refined Defiance
Set up and going to do it myself,
With refined design, then we're somewhere else.

Break all your bones to free yourself.
With enlightened minds, then we're somewhere else.

Take what you want to, be rebellious.
Sight your mind, then you're somewhere else.

What did you say? You mock yourself.
You can't buy revolutions.
Track Name: Hard To Remember
I'm trying hard to find something I lost a while ago
And now it seems so hard to remember
We keep it all inside, locked away
But right now I want to scream it out, I want to tell you

I'm hanging on but it's all gone wrong
Just like you said, I lost my way
If only we could reach our peak and keep it all the time

Because it's you, you're running round in my head
Yes it's true, you're hanging out in my head

I'll take it all today James Michael Cooper says
I'll demonstrate the way, it's not that hard to remember
Just put your foot in hard, stay sharp and stand your guard
Looking good in that Parker, let me tell you

I'm hanging on but it's all gone wrong
Just like you said, I lost my way
If only we could reach our peak and keep it all the time

Because it's you, you're running round in my head
Yes it's true, you're hanging out in my head

Please try not to forget good things you've done and said
Stay on the right road, it's not that hard to remember
Think first before you light the fuse and start the fight
Don't play the fool tonight on your Lambretta
You've taken your distraught and temperamental thoughts
Right out of all proportion. Let me tell you

I'm hanging on but it's all gone wrong
Just like you said I lost my way
I'm hear again, but I've lost my friends
I'm here again. Sincere again?
Track Name: High Octane Adventures
Your talk of revolution's prostitution
When all is said and done, you know I wanna be a drunken fighter,
Sleazy rider, cos limitation son is all you'll ever see.

So build me up I'll knock you down, I'll steal your crown I will
Because I want be a super-natural disaster
Faster than you ever could imagine I'd be son

Because I know it and it makes me feel insane
If you want it I could tell you, if I could remember my own name

But I wish you'd always say what you want to
Just like I always wanted to be
If you always say what you mean to
Then you'll not always turn out like me

Build me up I'll knock you down, I'll steal your crown, I will,
Because I want be a super-natural disaster
Faster than you ever could imagine I'd be son

Because I know it and it makes me feel insane
If you want it I could tell you, if I could remember my own name.

But I wish you'd always say what you want to
Just like I always wanted to be
If you always say what you mean to
Then you'll not always turn out like me
Track Name: Ghosts
Calling all offenders
Calling all in range
You devout pretenders
Are about to change
'Cos I'll push you down again

I will knock you sideways
You'll be down with those
When the fun is over
I will break your nose
Then I'll push you down again
Yeah, I'll push you down again

But if I fall then who might come?
Because after all, we're on the outside.

This is not your problem
And you're not my friend
So don't kid yourself I'm
On the mend
'Cos I'll push you down again
Yeah, I'll push you down again

But if I fall then who might come?
Because after all, we're on the outside.
Will we be freed from the ghosts that come?

Funny how we played before.
Will we be freed from the ghosts that come?
We'll be freed from the ghosts that come
Track Name: Honest
Anywhere you wanna go
You'll see I'm right behind you
Anything you wanna know
You'll see it's lost inside

You don't understand the things I told you
'Though they're for better reasons
But wait in line
You don't understand the reason why
I let you go, I gave you freedom
You will in time

If I ever break my promise
Then please don't cry
I was never really honest

Though you try you'll never know
Just how much how much love you hide
Honestly you'll never grow
If you keep it all inside

You don't understand the things I told you
'Though they're for better reasons
Don't waste your time
You don't understand the reason why
I let you go, I gave you freedom
You will in time

If I ever break my promise
Then please don't cry
I was never really honest
Deep inside

If I ever break my promise
Then please don't cry
I was never really honest

And all you ever needed was to be yourself
It's all ever you ever wanted luck from someone else
All you ever needed was to be yourself

Because that's how much you tried
You keep it all inside
Now run away and hide
I'm coming
Track Name: Hitting The Ground
Would you believe it?
And wouldn't you know
That now that you've seen it
You can't let go
Just because you heard him say it's that way
Doesn't mean that it's ok

Because we're coming to get you
Yeah, we're coming around
This isn't a threat,
You'll be hitting the ground
We're going to smash all your windows
And we'll blow up your town
We'll leave you hanging in limbo
Where nothing's going to bring you down.

So maybe it's raining
But looks like you're dry
So stop your complaining
And don't ask why
Just because you heard him say it's that way
Doesn't mean that it's ok

Because we're coming to get you
Yeah, we're coming around
This isn't a threat,
You'll be hitting the ground
We're going to smash all your windows
And we'll blow up your town
We'll leave you hanging in limbo
Where nothing's going to bring you down.
Track Name: Next Time I Won't Get Caught
There's water on the floor by the chain store, just behind the door
You saw it smoking but you just couldn't get it

Jones, he lit the fire as his head got higher
Crying maniacally "You liar, now you're going to regret it"

He broke into the school hall, dirty black soil
All he swore he said was sacred' "But you just don't get it"

Doing you a favour
Attitude to saviour
Gave you opportunities
He said it's to his credit

You keep on burning me baby
You keep on reeling me in
Can't say this fusion is crazy
I don't know where to begin

He broke into the school hall, dirty black soil
All he swore he said was sacred' "But you just don't get it"

Doing you a favour
Attitude to saviour
Gave you opportunities
He said it's to his credit

Spoken like a stoned man "You just don't get it"

You keep on burning me baby
You keep on reeling me in
Can't say this fusion is crazy
I don't know where to begin
Track Name: 10:59
Conversations lately in the main don't seem to be the same
Though seems that you can get it all today
I'll believe it when I see it. Not anticipating

These photogenic people on your TV, singing on your CD
Make me wanna start a war today
I'll be leaving when I see it and I won't be waiting

There's violence everywhere, I don't care, I don't vote
Cos it won't make a difference to the way I'm bored today
I believe it's ever so frustrating

Maybe I'd try a bit more if you told me what I'm fighting for
If you told me why you're whining on and on and on and on
You're always gonna be ignored, 'cos you've got nothing to say

Conversations lately in the main don't seem to be the same
Though seems that you can get it all today
I'll believe it when I see it but I won't be waiting

These photogenic people on your TV, singing on your CD
Make me wanna start a war today
I believe it's ever so frustrating

Maybe I'd try a bit more if you told me what I'm fighting for
If you told me why you're whining on and on and on and on
You're always gonna be ignored, 'cos you've got nothing to say

You've got nothing to say
Track Name: Soul Weekender
Pocket of rizla and a fire lighter,
Rockets your vision gives you higher sighting.
Bang on about it 'cos it makes you feel good,
Scream it and shout it 'cos you're made of real blood.

You make it real and you don't pretend and
You'll have me feel like it's never ending.
Baby we're going on another bender,
Spend all your money on a soul weekender.

Oh yeah. Come on yeah.

Check your soul.
Track Name: Retribution
Go again but don't you get buried
Said the man before
This deed was over
Now they're burring down his door

Hail no to repercussions
Hail no to consequence
Hail no to retribution
On my first offence

So then I won't get buried
And no, I won't be told
My dream is over
Won't be nothing when I'm old
But if it's all you can manage
Just to disagree
Go take your sleep
Don't leave the nightlight on for me

Go again but don't you get buried
Go ahead but don't you get buried

You might not be wasted
You've got to chew it if you taste
Don't have to do it, though they may have said it's for you
Leads start falling
Police start calling
I'm not warning you

So face the cold and break the mould
And take the old fake documents right down your favourite station
What complication!
'Cos when it's done it's done
Though you'll deny it for fifteen years
On no. Say you're an honest bloke, they'll hope you choke

So go ahead get buried
But no, you won't be told
Your dream is over
Won't be nothing when you're old
But if it's all you can manage
Just to disagree
Go take your sleep
Don't leave the nightlight on for me

Go again but don't you get buried
Go ahead but don't you get buried

You might not be wasted
You've got to chew it if you taste
Don't have to do it, though they may have said it's for you
Leads start falling
Police start calling
I'm not warning you

You see it's only done in recompense

You might not be wasted
You've got to chew it if you taste
Don't have to do it, though they may have said it's for you
Leads start falling
Police start calling
I'm not warning you

You take all you can get
All you can make from all that was said
But it's all in good time
All in good time
All in good time

I would embrace this moment for you
All in good taste until we get through
But it's all in good time
All in good time
All in good time
