Track Name: Man And Boy
Hey you
Yeah you
Do you see
What I see

Too little, too late, you had it all
And now you've gone and missed your call

Hey you
Talking to you
Do you feel
What I feel

Too little, too late, the hurt is real
I got the raw end of the deal

You should have been beside me all my days man, man and boy
But you left me to face the world alone man, man and boy

Got my head
Held high
How can I
Forgive you

Too little, too late, you had your time
Now you'll never know all that is mine

Too little, too late, your time has come
Now you're no longer my number one
Track Name: Bullets
I thought we'd talked it over
I thought it was understood
I thought we'd stick together, all times, good and bad
I thought we believed in honesty
I thought we knew the score
I thought it was never a game
Then you stabbed me in the back

And now I'm taking...
No more bullets for you
No more bullets for you
No more bullets for you
No more, bullets, for you, for you

I thought you were on the level
I thought I could rely on you
I thought we were all together, as one, side by side
I thought we'd last forever
I thought it would never end
I thought it was all unwritten
Then you stabbed me in the back

I see a distant look in your eyes now
I see a different look on your face
This side of you I don't recognize now
You got me hurting and confused
Track Name: It's Over (Before It Even Began)
There was always something about you
That I knew I couldn't resist
Everything is so predictable
And I knew it would come to this

And that's why it's over before it even began
And it's over before it even began
Before it began

I started something
That was never ever gonna' end well
I pushed it to the limits
And it's something you didn't deserve

And that's why it's over before it even began
And it's over before it even began
I won't let you get under my skin
'Cos you're gonna' take away everything
And it's over before it even began
And it's over before it even began
Before it began

All those broken promises oh they end up breaking hearts
Lying, deceiving, destroying dreams, tearing us apart
I've gotta' let my head rule my heart

What now for the future
I've nothing left to lose
I've been walking a mile in my shoes
And I've been beaten black and blue
Track Name: Allways The Bad Guy
They say, time is a healer
They say, you've gotta' prove your point
They say, follow the leader
They say, you're gonna disappoint

Can never say the right thing, can never do the right thing

I'm always gonna' be the bad guy
I'm always gonna' be the bad guy
I'm always gonna' be the bad guy
The bad guy - the bad guy

They say, look after number one
They say, do what you gotta' do
They say, you're like a loaded gun
They say, you're no longer the glue

I say black, you say white, am I wrong, am I right?

They say, get back in the game
They say, you gotta' speak your mind
They say, no pain no gain
They say, there's none so blind
Track Name: Face The Truth
Just another, Monday morning, and the playground, is at war
I’m kicked and beaten, by the majority, no matter, no matter the score
Well some might say, that it’s a disease, that’s passed down, from father to son
But some of us, we can think for ourselves, and I know that, I’m not alone

Face The Truth

Those in charge, just bury their heads, and no-one, will accept the blame
A cry for help, falls on deaf ears, it’s our, our secret shame
They say that adults, should no better, and they need to, to educate
But what chance, all the children - the ones who, who have learned to hate

It’s the 21st century, (Face the truth)
It’s the 21st century, (Face the truth)
It’s the 21st century, (Face the truth)
So Stop Turning A Blind Eye
Track Name: You Fade Away
Only a vision, living a lie
Stranger by name, no need to cry
Empty by nature, so hard to please
Discover the secret, whispers the breeze

Are you at peace with the air you can’t breathe
And would you surprise us with things you believe
Searching for justice, then who’s in the dock
And would you have stared at the hands on the clock

Shine through the darkness
Reach out and touch your face
Shine through the darkness
Fade away, fade away, fade away
You fade away, you fade away
You fade away, you fade away

Could you have sat in the corner and wept
Frustration and anger so hard to accept
Would you have argued for the right to appeal
And would you believe in the cupboard surreal

Would you release all others might guard
And would you have shivered so cold and so sad
Would you have blinked at the troubles we shared
And would you have cried when I fell down the stairs

Empty by nature, so hard to please
God bless, goodnight, God bless, sleep tight
Hope for and wish for a beautiful life
Fucked up and screwed up a waste of a life!
Track Name: Regrets
Regrets, I’ve had more than a few
But far too many to mention

All those times, yeah, I’m sure that you knew
Just crying out for salvation

Wasted days, Wasted years
Wasted nights, Wasted tears
Wasted days, Wasted years
Wasted nights, Wasted tears

In my life, I’ve loved, laughed and I’ve cried
Suffering fools without exception

There’s so many things I wouldn’t do
If I could have my time again
There’s only so much shit you can take
When you know you’re not to blame
When you know you're not to blame
Track Name: Nowhere Boy
I sit and watch my life unfold and it cuts me to the core
As the years fly by they knock me over as I crawl back off the floor
I'm just a Nowhere boy nowhere boy
I'm just a Nowhere boy nowhere boy

No longer recognize the face oh in the mirror on the bathroom wall
It stares at me with great disappointment all my questions are answered wrong

I can't see, I can't hear, I can't breath
Then I'm hot, then I sweat, then I'm cold

All my ghosts from the past come back to haunt me on social media
From grainy black and white to technicolour that's how it feels

Out in the dark and on my own and I shiver down to the bone
Take me back right to the start it's a default where I'm comfortable
Track Name: The Man Who Thinks He's God
Do as I do
Do as I say
'Cos I'm the man who thinks he's god

Stand up, pay attention, pin back your ears
The word is out, clear your mind, reject your peers
Follow on blindly, what's to lose, you're just buying time
You're sure to find, those glory days, give us a sign

Do as I do
Do as I say
'Cos I'm the man who thinks he's god
Do as I do
Do as I say
'Cos I'm the man who thinks he's god
I'm the man who thinks he's god
I'm the man - who thinks he's god

Give me no answers, questions fade, no reality
Anally retentive springs to mind, show some humility
Living in a bubble, isolation, who's pulling the strings
Don't back down, seize control, the fat lady sings

You gotta' keep looking, over your shoulder, a new dawn is here
The prophet speaks, but nothing makes sense, bullshit bleeds my ears
Born frustrated, paranoia, suspicious minds
Move along now, there's nothing to see, can't you read the signs?
Track Name: Friday Girl
She's my Friday girl, and I don't know, if she's coming round
She's my Friday girl, and I don't know, if she's up or down

I've waited all week
I've waited for the day
I've waited for you
To come my way

The hours have dragged in
Time has stool still
The clock on the wall
Can see the state I'm in

Waiting for a call
Is it time to take a pill?
All this hanging round
Is making me ill

Your lipstick smile tells me you're all mine
Your lipstick smile tells me to run a mile
Track Name: Remember My Name
I see you every time I dream
I try so hard to connect with my conscience stream
One of these days I won't need to try so hard
One of these days I'll think I'm going mad
And that will be the best day ever
That will be the best time ever

Remember my name
Will you remember my name
Remember my name

Things are different now, that's how it seems
Confusion reigns what does it mean?
One of these days a light's gonna' shine
One of these days it's all gonna' blow my mind
And that will be the best day ever
That will be the best time ever

Just an old photograph – a blast from the past
Pour me a drink and we'll raise a glass
Remember my name

I can't see your face, I can't see your smile
Can't reach to touch you, I can't hear a sound
Track Name: Lie Deflect And Spin
I don't read the papers and I don't watch the news
I couldn't get much lower if I wanted to
History repeated and no-ones backing down
Dunno' whether to laugh or cry my head is spinning round

And the small man he is crushed
He is never to be saved
The elite never bite the dust
From the cradle to the grave

I don't believe this propaganda
I don't believe this propaganda
I don't believe this propaganda
Lie, deflect & spin

Everyone's divided, society built on sand
We only see what we want to see yeah on demand
Safe from prosecution, the old boy network thrives
We're all so desensitised, we forget to empathise

I don't believe, I don't need it
I don't believe, I don't need it
I don't believe, I don't need it
Lie, deflect & spin
Track Name: No More Tears For Daddy
There’ll be no more tears for Daddy
Cos’ Daddy ain’t coming home
He’s lying in a box wrapped in a Union flag
For a Government with hearts of stone

Who’s gonna’ hold your hand at night
Read you stories that need to be told
Who’s gonna’ scare away the bogey man
Protect you from the wind and cold

I’m never going to feel your gentle touch
I’ll cherish every ounce of love from you
I’m never going to see you growing up
And it breaks my heart in two

Who’ll pick you up when you stumble and fall
Dry your tears and dust you down
Who’ll get to share all those happy days
I just know that you would make me proud

I’m not the only one, I’m not the only one
Just another dead hero, no use to you now
Please remember me anyway, somehow
