Track Name: Left & Right
They sort us left and right,
then tee us up to fight,
they think they're in control,
but don't let go...

Get up off your hands,
and draw up all your plans,
they think they're in control,
Just don't let go...

Cos there's gold,
in your soul,
let them know,
what you're made of...

We're told to hate the poor,
we're told to hate the rich,
you're bullshit fake news,
makes my teeth itch,

To treat people like shit,
then wash your hands of it,
you're no better than the ones,
who bait and switch

And there's gold,
in your soul,
let them know,
what you're made of

They bankrupt families,
then charge them massive fees,
Economy is run,
by ass holes now,

there's time to make a change,
and room to re-arrange,
the values we hold dear,
Just don't let go!

There's gold,
in your soul,
let them know,
what you're made of

So fuck their zero-hour's,
Let's not build ivory towers,
Let's build communities,
And make them strong!

Let's teach our kids to care,
and fight for what is fair,
Remember to hold on,
and don't let go!
Track Name: We Don't Stand Alone
You don't find,
days that we can take a piece of mind from,
but days like this are nature of the times,
and we can take a new leaf in our book,

Come people,
gather round and listen to yourselves now,
the papers aren't written for your minds,
they will prophesise til we're like sinking stone,

The battle,
that's raging outside our fucking news rooms,
Cannot be heard through all their piles of money,
but we don't care for paper or for thrones

The old road,
is short and narrow, so why don't we all grow?
Cos nothing good will come from drilling holes in,
the world that we're supposed to call our home!

And we don't stand alone, no we will never give up!
We don't stand, don't stand, don't stand.....

...alone!
Track Name: When the Night is Dark
Sometimes all the lights go out on you,
and you will always want to wander through,
but the night sits right on you

And when you're down,
I'll be with you,
and when the night is dark,
we'll see it through,
When you're low, I will be there,
When the night is dark you'll know I care

Life's hard, and times are changing around you,
sometimes, you need someone to just come through,
and hold them back for you

When you're down,
I'll be with you,
and when the night is dark,
we'll see it through,
When you're low, I will be there,
When the night is dark you'll know I care

Sometimes, all the lights go out on you,
this time, we'll be the ones to see you through,
we'll burn them down for you!

And when you're down,
I'll be with you,
and when the night is dark,
we'll see it through,
When you're low, I will be there,
When the night is dark you'll know I care,

You know i care, you know I care,
When the night is dark you'll know I care!
Track Name: The End...?
I don't move, don't want to blow it,
I don't speak, don't want to show it,
But I know, how to predict the end...

We don't go, down to the disco,
and your friends and all of this,
though, we knew, that was all pretend,

And I don't know why they don't talk about the end,
the good times come and go, you said they would my friend,

Sometimes, I'm thinking over,
all the times we weren't sober,
we knew how to re-offend,
on the streets we had our kingdom,
we had the songs, we had to sing them,
we knew that's how a heart should mend,

And I don't know why they don't talk about the end,
the good times come and go, you said they would my friend,

We don't know why,
we don't know why,
we don't know why...
...it makes no sense to me.

I saw the signs, but could not see them,
the time had come, it was time to free them,
thought I knew, how to predict the end...

And I don't know why they don't talk about the end,
the good times come and go, you said they would my friend,

We don't know why,
we don't know why,
we don't know why...
...it makes no sense to me.

We don't know why,
sometimes I'd die,
to watch you fly
...it makes no sense
Track Name: Shout it Out!
Why celebrate a failed attempt?
Just let the fireworks go!
Look at you with such contempt,
cos we thought of saying no,
hit out with fear and lies,
and hope we roll with the punches,
and as the rich get rich,
they put it through on their expenses,

Get off your Fucking knees,
can't you see these atrocities?
we're not wounded sheep,
get up and make a stand!
And they can build their walls...
...reach up and pull them down,
Stand up tall, shout out and tell them!

Expecting us to fall in line,
and pick up all the broken pieces,
drinking down the port and wine,
you're the worst kind of leeches!
And with your broken ranks,
and incompatible views,
you just do what you like,
you don't care who will lose!

Get off your Fucking knees,
can't you see these atrocities?
we're not wounded sheep,
get up and make a stand!
And they can build their walls...
...reach up and pull them down,
Stand up tall, shout out and tell them!

You never thought we'd stand and fight,
or fail to put up with your shite,
bring it up when you were wrong,
didn't think we would be strong,
how can we make this clear,
without screaming in your ear,
that your lies and your greed,
have now planted marching feet?
to your door we will stride,
with our new found mended pride,
fuck your wars and your crimes,
we are calling it full time!
fuck your cheers and your jeers,
we won't live our lives in fear,
Single voice it carries strength,
but with many rise again!

Get off your Fucking knees,
can't you see these atrocities?
we're not wounded sheep,
get up and make a stand!
And they can build their walls...
...reach up and pull them down,
Stand up tall, shout out and tell them!

Lyrics by Keith Berry
Track Name: Love is a Kick (In the Nuts)
Stand up if you've been broken,
Stand down if you're forgiven,
why do we always do this?
Love is a kick in the...

Why do we do this,
over and over?
these arguments will,
get us nowhere,
I don't care what they say,
please believe me,
i don't think we should care,
what's done on TV no, no!

Stand up if you've been broken,
Stand down if you're forgiven,
why do we always do this?
Love is a kick in the...
You know you drive me crazy,
I hope you're always with me,
the good things don't come easy,
Love is a kick in the....

You're making faces, at my bromances,
communicate through, sideways glances,
tell me what you mean and I can help you,
cos I can't figure out, what you're trying to say,
no way!

Stand up if you've been broken,
Stand down if you're forgiven,
why do we always do this?
Love is a kick in the...
You know you drive me crazy,
I hope you're always with me,
the good things don't come easy,
Love is a kick in the....

If we take the time to get ourselves right,
we wouldn't feel like we were wasting daylight,
thinking about the times that weren't easy,
will eat you're heart away,
So please believe me now, now...

Stand up if you've been broken,
Stand down if you're forgiven,
why do we always do this?
Love is a kick in the...
You know you drive me crazy,
I hope you're always with me,
the good things don't come easy,
Love is a kick in the....
