keep the peace

Calm down
You're punching above your weight
a smack in the neck
You call it gross and centre fold
It makes no sense that you took it all

Pitch
The Question
Standing on a single point
Deliver
The standard was there, but we'll go back to bed

Keep the peace
And idle on
Stand alone
Deny the wrongs
Keep the peace
And idle on
You're life's already dead in the long run

Stand down
A comment you call from bed
I don't want to call, effective, love less, says it all
you make these friends then you cut them all

Pitch
The Question
Standing on a single point
Deliver
The standard was there, but we'll go back to bed

Keep the peace
And idle on
Stand alone
Deny the wrongs
Keep the peace
And idle on
You're life's already dead in the long run

And nature will run it's course
You won't always find the way
Your better without them

Keep the peace
And idle on
Stand alone
Deny the wrongs
Keep the peace
And idle on
You're life's already dead in the long run

And nature will run it's course
You won't always find the way
Your better without them

And nature will run it's course
You won't always find the way
Your better without them

torch led

It's the finest of equations
Rounded up like cattle to the prod
Centuries of innovations
I click the button drop the bomb

Some people are born with it
Some people can't live without it
Some people turn to crime
Some people are blind

Torch led
Spoon fed
another one off the list

Torch Led
Spoon fed
seems i've already quit

You'll never have the guts, go torch led
Hammering election lines
Spoon fed with a teaspoon of self belief
take the money, take the shirts and they'll have yer teeth

Some people are born with it
Some people can't live without it
Some people turn to crime
Some people are blind

Torch led
Spoon fed
another one off the list

Torch Led
Spoon fed
seems i've already quit

This will come as self belief
Gathered round we'll fall beneath
From a standard we drop to a crawl
this will come as a revelation to us all

A revelation

Torch led
Spoon fed
another one off the list

Torch Led
Spoon fed
seems i've already quit

Torch led
Spoon fed
another one off the list

Torch Led
Spoon fed
seems i've already left and I've quit

day release

Overrated
Incomplete and over funded

Draw straws
Close doors
And you'll never learn the tricks
Stained floors
Race wars
And they can't deliver

Bleeding in my heart you think it's funny
I never picked up a book to try and figure out how
If I died here next to you
will you see my body hit the floor through your eyes
It's just so hard to figure out, why

Over­sized
But all the cash that you have squandered
Short straw
Class war
And you'll never learn the tricks
Stained floors
Race wars
And they can't deliver

Bleeding in my heart you think it's funny
I never picked up a book to try and figure out how
If I died here next to you
will you see my body hit the floor through your eyes
It's just so hard to figure out, why

Underground it sits in wait
The ill conceived this mountain debt
The paper trails that seems to lead to nothing

nothing

Bleeding in my heart you think it's funny
I never picked up a book to try and figure out how
If I died here next to you
will you see my body hit the floor through your eyes
It's just so hard to figure out, why

Last shout, last orders please
It's the midnight jaunt to your day release
The clocks second it fails to turn

Last shout, last orders please
It's the midnight walk after day release
The clocks second it fails to turn

fails to turn

concrete

Concrete
The days repeat
Independent mothers
A group of children hold a municipal gun, they're special ones

Far beneath
I witness me
In the the grips of running
While we are lead to believe
We need some pain relief

Take a stand to be the best
That would be priceless
From a soldier to another never falters

I can't believe I took the pill
On a baseless study
While we're all led to believe
we need some pain relief

We're caught in a circle of mindless incited violence

Situation changes when you fiddle the facts
You've been tossed off by a gaggle well you're better than that
I hope they don't treat me as man of the match
When the vultures doth rain to hell with that

Calling all A's of a college grade
I'm paid but not paying attention
Calm it all down, a needled dawn
I struggle, I need some pain relief

We're caught in a circle of mindless incited violence

Facedown
Passed out

Let's not dwell on a past that's clean
Cold dead hands in a violent dream
Wars end fast with a little pain relief

Facedown
Passed out
Facedown
Passed out

Feel strength the more I tread
All my trials and the common threat
Morning cries and the roads went red
Coffee's burned and my fortune's read

Feel strength with the less I beg
Almond eyed with the distant threat
Morning cries they will go unwitnessed
Can't get a trial when you're dead

Feel strength with the less I beg
Almond eyed with the distant threat
Morning cries they will go unwitnessed
an't get a trial when you're dead

Caught in a circle of mindless incited violence

Facedown
Passed out

Let's not dwell on a past that's clean
Cold dead hands in a violent dream
Wars end fast with a little pain relief

Great Discoveries

As good as it gets
I'll grab my prime again
As tired as I was
I'll remain about my only friend

I'm in a league
and we're simply covered in gold
I don't wanna leave
And we're set in colour and tone

You've got to back it up
You've got to back it up
You've got to back it up

As stuck as I was
I'll improve myself again
I'm tired of in mud
Now I'm drowning
we are drowning.

I'm in a league
and we're simply covered in gold
I don't wanna leave
and we're set in colour and tone

You've got to back it up
You've got to back it up
You've got to back it up

Great discoveries of the century
As my cold dead limbs they begin appealing
Great discoveries, I'll tell

Great discoveries of the century
As my cold dead limbs they begin appealing
Great discoveries, I'll tell

Many memories we crossed for the great unwashed

We crossed for the great unwashed
We crossed for the great unwashed
We crossed for the great unwashed

I'm in a league
And we're simply covered in gold
I don't want to leave
And we're set in colour

You've got to back it up
You've got to back it up
You've got to back it up

You've got to back it up
You've got to back it up
You've got to back it up

Great discoveries of the century
As my cold dead limbs they begin appealing
Great discoveries, I'll tell

Great discoveries of the century
As my cold dead limbs they begin appealing
Great discoveries, I'll tell

Ways to follow
Fire fight, dim lines redacted
All the memories
Lost for the great unwashed

old romantics

Cuts his hands upon the iron chest
Not selected over accomplishments
From a gatehouse I will carve my charm
And from the bottom of my stone cold heart and we've come so far

A little healthy bit of culture cannot kill you anyway
You wrapped yourself cotton wool for so long and you can't take that away
Seven sisters make a list of all the the childhood runaways

It's really hard to court but old romantics die together

but we rally on

Cut your hands against the iron bridge
Not connected by a common aim, like his friends may claim

A little healthy bit of culture cannot kill you anyway
You wrapped yourself cotton wool for so long and you can't take that away
Seven sisters make a list of all the the childhood runaways

It's really hard to court but old romantics die together

but we rally on

Have you ever been down there?
Have you ever been grounded?
Have you ever been down there?
Have you ever taken the yoke and flown right to the sea?

Have you ever been down there?
Have you ever been grounded?
Have you ever been down there?

this stone cold heart never made the start

A little healthy bit of culture cannot kill you anyway
You wrapped yourself cotton wool for so long and you can't take that away
Seven sisters make a list of all the the childhood runaways

It's really hard to court but old romantics die together
old semantics die forever
old romantics die together

but we rally on

when i was gentleman

When I was a Gentleman
Clearly I was faked
Now I'm running overheads
And I'll remain until you quit

Yea I will say until I'm blue in face
Cause they got you by the dollars, You look so out of place
Everybody's cold and the money's burning
Slash the gas pipe yet we're never improving

Rise and fall
Rise and fall
Rise and fall
Rise and fall

When I was a Gentleman
Clearly it was fate
Now I'm running overheads
The winding long walk home alone it is

As these days draw in I'm stuck in place
Get to know your country by a voice and face
Everybody's waiting on the monday ruling
Rounding up the sheep that we're never including

Heard in your conscience
Now you've got a big rift
Heard it on news threads

Rise and fall

When I was a Gentleman
Clearly it was fate
Now I'm running overheads
The winding long walk home alone it is

All those wounds that you haven't discovered
All that heart you left in the closet
Right back then it seemed so attractive
All that fuel it was never enough

All those wounds that you haven't discovered
All that heart you left in the closet
Right back then it seemed so attractive
ll that fuel it was never enough

When I was a Gentleman
Clearly I was faked
Now I'm running critical

A winding long walk home alone it is
A winding long walk home alone it is

big divide

The most influential people
Are the ones you meet by chance
They will fill your head with a wily confidence

And they can't protect your image
and they can't protect your past
And it's fine to be defeatist

Back when the Island felt so crushed
Singing an awkward cycled song, I'm fearing
It's why we're not craving enough

I'm glad it's rising up

In a focussed conversation
That I confidentially lead
Where the words just seem to pour out instead

With a caveat of problems
That's coming out to print
And it's fine to be defeatist

It's worst kind of man that you're fighting
It's the sweat it's the blood that makes him up
It's the flesh of his words that's defining

Back when the Island felt so crushed
Singing an awkward cycled song, I'm fearing
It's why we're not craving enough

I'm glad it's rising up

Correlation, operations, success
Application, domination, put to bed
Domination, application, success, success

It's worst kind of man that you're fighting
It's the sweat it's the blood that makes him up
It's the flesh of his words that's defining

Back when the Island felt so crushed
Singing an awkward cycled song, I'm fearing
It's why we're not craving enough

I'm glad it's rising

Stuck in the Capitals sunset
With no little finger reset
While I'm fearing It's what we're not craving enough

I'm glad it's rising up

Correlation, operations, success
Application, domination, put to bed
Domination, application, success, success, no less

golden age

Like a warning cloud, absolves the light
above my troubled head
And in the dark suspended
necessary
god fearing
we're lead

And it's back to school

On it, on it, on it, polls begin to swing
Polarised in numbers, murderers will bring

Lowly heads still bow but I believe in peace
We sold a common love where soul becomes a dream

And every morning when I wake late
Politics everyday
selling stories
football burning back page

A dead dodo
an up and up and coming cameo
drop n roll, Cameras roll
how the fuck can we all know

We sold out to the bullet
Sold out to be free
Sold out when they pull it
When you think got yourself together

Golden Age, Golden Age
Well you lived your life by books
Burn the page, burn the page
It was brighter than it looked

And it's back to school

On it, on it, on it, polls to keep us down
Polarised in numbers murderers will bring
Lowly heads still bow but I still bathe in speech
We sold a common love where life becomes a dream

And every morning when I wake late
Politics everyday
selling stories
football burning back page

A dead dodo
an up and up and coming cameo
drop n roll, Cameras roll
how the fuck can we all know

We sold out to the bullet
Sold out to be free
Sold out when they pull it
When you think got yourself together

Golden Age, Golden Age
Well you lived your life by books
Burn the page, burn the page
It was brighter than it looked

They said we'd win
With shovels down
Then fortunes changed
When the winds picked up
You sold your soul
But people talk
A static draw
And that's the problem

Like a warning cloud
Absolves the light above my troubled head
In the dark suspended, necessary, god fearing

we're lead

Golden Age, Golden Age
Well you lived your life by books
Golden Age, Golden Age
It was brighter than it looked

Golden Age, Golden Age
Well you lived your life by books
Golden Age, Golden Age
It was brighter than it looked

relic

I shed a tear and extract the mole
Your politician unsuitable
It's so insulting you crossed the cheque
But I wet the floor just to gain a slip

Sure, I'll be in bed early and impossible to wake
Salt and pepper in the morning rain
It's operating and all in trend
But we'll all die alone anyway wont we?

Sure enough to fall into the relics
And if I'm coming on too strong you'll have to tell it
And If our screws are way too weak we'll have to cut them
Upon our teeth I can't conduct this on my own

And it's you
and me
for all
well I'll take credit

And with an iron scissor I tear the split
It's so insulting it leaves you sick
And just before the kite sails to finish line it gets caught in the boughs
Should I be using telekinesis to work out this crisis?

Sure enough to fall into the relics
And if I'm coming on too strong you'll have to tell it
And If our screws are way too weak we'll have to cut them
Upon our teeth I can't conduct this on my own

And it's you
and me
for all
to see

I will bathe in all of it
I will bathe in all of it
I will bathe in all of it
I will bathe in all of it

Long steps, in context
alternate, I'm confident it works

Long steps, in context
alternate, I'm confident it works

Sure enough to fall into the relics
And if I'm coming on too strong you'll have to tell it
And If our screws are way too weak we'll have to cut them
Upon our teeth I can't conduct this on my own

And it's you
and me
for all
and I'll take credit

Last words

Let's start with a criminal act
When the bar led out
I'm taping
I tied my feet to the bricks

Led down the walkway
And holding the flag
I'm shaking
I throw it out to the sticks

Lie back
We're stuck in reverse
we're stuck in reverse
And they've stolen our verse

Take out the backbone and suffer the voice
I'm asking I thought I asked you twice

I bet that

You really got me
You really got me
You really got me
No matter how hard I tried

Last time for the criminal acts
when the sanctions relaxed
I'm braking
I drifted under the bridge

I'm taming the culprit
I'm burning the pulpit
I've tasted
I'll tell you when the barge pulls in

I will believe
I will believe
I will believe

Lie back
We're stuck in reverse
we're stuck in reverse
And they've stolen our verse

Take out the backbone and suffer the voice
I'm asking I thought I asked you twice

I bet that

You really got me
You really got me
You really got me
No matter how hard I tried

I will believe
So far to go
They pulled the plug out

You
I will return
I will return
To the grounds of glory

I will believe
And in return
Give the last selected word

Take out the backbone and suffer the voice
I'm asking I thought I asked you twice

I bet that

You really got me
You really got me
You really got me
No matter how hard I tried

Take out the backbone and suffer the voice
I'm asking I thought I asked you twice

I bet that

You really got me
You really got me
You really got me
No matter how hard I tried
