Track Name: This Is Where It All Begins
VERSE 1:
Years and years, of painful tears
And then they tell you, "Go and pick a career"
But they just don't stop, and if you drop
You'll coin no care because you don't mean a lot
Get me a drink, and a pack of golds
Cos I don't plan on growing old
But eighteen, eighteen is a schoolboy's dream
Cos you can have a smoke and an Irish cream.

CHORUS 1:
But this, this is where it all begins
The lying, the cheating, the crying, weeping
Nobody is perfect, except for everyone but me
But upon the clearing mist
And when the priest goes atheist
I'll be there, and I'll be the one to say
That this is where it all begins.

VERSE 2:
Switch on the telly, and read the news
They'll tell you drink and knives are what we choose
We're all evil, that's a given fact
Underage, and underclass
Waiting, waiting for that bell to ring
Cos we just wanna live our lives and shout and sing
But the men at the top, put forth their dreams
On how to ensure that we'll never be free.

CHORUS 2:
And this, this is where it all begins
The crying, the cheating, the putrid greetings
Nobody is listening to the things we gotta be
But when it comes around
And when the walls come crashing down
We'll be there, and I solemnly declare
That this is where it all begins.

BRIDGE:
Take us back, to the, dead end track, again
And all the hate we've tasted
Look around, and you, hear the sounds, all day
Of all the youth that's wasted
And we shall pay, and waste our days
For all of our, hypothetical sins
But give us crap, and then, we'll come back, for more
Cos this is where it all begins.

Track Name: Hero
VERSE 1:
Live from the bottle and a ten deck
And here I stand, your great defender
And I speak the words that I wanna say
And purge the land of fake pretenders
Cos I wanna be the one you dream of
But you just don't say what you mean
Claim to be innocent and sin free
But no one's ever squeaky clean.

BRIDGE 1:
And I just gotta find a way, to be free
And I've met so many women
But you're the best one that I've ever tasted.

CHORUS:
And I would never, raise my fists, point the finger, speak against you now
It's not the way I spend my time
But you've been lying all day, crying all night
Tryna be free, but dying of fright
When all the time I know
That it's only for a show
But still I'm standing right here by your side
Think of me as your hero tonight.

VERSE 2:
The villain shouts his Yankie shite
The hero comes and plays the joker
The words you say, the moves you make
Well they will never win me over
And I cannot fly, and spread my wings
And I don't wear a suit of leather
But take my hand and let's make the most
Of this short time we have together.

BRIDGE 2:
And I just gotta fly away, through the trees
And I'll be just in time to save you
But it's 3am and I'm fucking wasted.

CHORUS

POST CHORUS:
I see you're wearing leather again, oh yeah
Cos now we're back together again
I'm gonna change my ways, change the way I live
From ten to twenty, cigarettes a day.

Track Name: Go Ahead And Make My Day
VERSE 1:
Now the wisdom fades away
World around will fade to grey
On the piss to pass the time
Just another in the line.

BRIDGE 1:
Live in fear of just being seen
Then turn to joy from those on screen.

CHORUS 1:
But heroes come and heroes go
Watch 'em fade as they grow old
Summer's out for all around
And I'm still drowning in the cold
And I just aint the one to say
Go Ahead and make my day
Go ahead and make my day.

VERSE 2:
Take the time to hurry up
Cos now's the time to try be tough
Find a sign that could be mine
Before I enter my decline.

BRIDGE 2:
I wanna say I've had enough
Or find a girl to build me up.

CHORUS 2:
But women come and women go
Watch our love be bought and sold
Wanna show where I could go
Wanna show a heart of gold
And this just aint a lucky day
Wanna slink and slide away
Go ahead and make my day.

CHORUS 3: (As Chorus 1)

OUTRO:
Go ahead and make my day (repeat)

Track Name: Breakaway
VERSE 1:
I wanna break free, and be somebody
Whatever country, pack up my bags and don't look back
I wanna be there, no cash and no care
Anywhere, and forget the freedoms that I lack.

VERSE 2:
It doesn't faze me, how you hate me
Desecrate me, cos I've come through every last attack
And if you try me, try to blind me
Then when you find me, fight with my fists and strike you back.

BRIDGE 1:
And if I rise before I fall
T'will be like I was never here at all.

CHORUS:
I wanna stand out, I wanna breakaway
Find a new way, climb my way off the beaten track
I wanna find you, then unwind you
Find a new place, pack up our bags and don't look back.

VERSE 3:
Pretty lady, where you heading?
What you sending, what do you have there in the sack?
Can you see me, can you hear me?
Can you feel me, or is it my heart you cannot hack?

BRIDGE 2:
And if I fly before I crawl
Then I shall wait for Heaven's call.

Track Name: No Chance
VERSE 1:
You've got, no chance
There's society, and you're her dredge
Nothing, no one
As you stare at the world from your window ledge.

BRIDGE 1:
The lies start to circle around within your mind
And fate, with its broken logic, most unkind.

CHORUS 1:
You've got no chance of going clean
You'll never be the teenage dream
But I love you for it
Yes I adore you for this.

VERSE 2:
Sod it, sod on
There's a chance of love, but you're the wedge
Longing, long on
As you drive my patience to the edge.

BRIDGE 2:
And I can do no right, can do no wrong
And would you sink to the very bottom were I gone?

CHORUS 2: (As Chorus 1)

CHORUS 3:
You've got no chance of going clean
You'll never be the teenage dream
But it matters not to me
Cos you're Heaven and Earth to me.

CHORUS 4:
You've got no hope to be a star
When you hate, with your every sinew what you are
But surrender not to greed
Just surrender yourself to me.

Track Name: Leave Me Now
VERSE 1:
Planned my life around the dream I had
The plan never went through
Felt it was special, now it's falling away
And there's nothing I can do.

BRIDGE 1:
Standing alone in the rain yet again
With no heart to call my home
Seldom seems that I'm worthy enough
For a woman to call my own
A man with no comfort zone.

VERSE 2:
You've always stood by me when I've made mistakes
And times I've been a fool
I never thought that we could fade away
But it's funny what time can do.

BRIDGE 2:
Stood on the tracks with a train on the way
With no will to move aside
Cos my life's broken down and it's falling apart
Lost the girl, the hope, my pride
And you're no longer by my side.

CHORUS:
Leave me now and drain away my soul
And bury it beneath your garden
Leave me now to face the world alone
While my enemies grow stronger and harder.

POST CHORUS 1:
Cos what more could you want from me?
Blinded by honesty
As cocky as I can be
The truth
Is that I can't live without you in my life.

CHORUS

POST CHORUS 2:
Cos it took me too long to see
That you're the one and only
And even though it's too late
If there was a change of fate.

OUTRO:
I'd give up my life for you
I'd lay down and cry with you
I'd travel the skies with you
And stay on cloud nine with you
I'd belt up and lie for you
I'd live life and die with you
...........................................
And yes I would die for you.
Track Name: Tennis Girl
VERSE 1:
In the streets, that I sweep
Where I eat, spend all my time
In a dream, her and me
All the world, be hers and mine.

BRIDGE 1:
When she crept into my conscience
Then I knew it was meant to be
But if I lept out, before her vision
Then what would she make of me?

CHORUS 1:
She can't know what her presence means to me
Tip-top woman and teenage dream
And I don't mind if I never meet her
Just as long as I see her on screen.

VERSE 2:
On the streets, that she keeps
Where I weep, before her kind
In a dream, squeaky clean
How obscene, my broken mind.

BRIDGE 2:
Cos the way she plays the game of life
Turns our mortal hearts to cold
With no frills and nothing extra there
Love to taste her sweat of gold.

CHORUS 2:
She don't know what her image does to me
Watch her triumph with fruit and cream
And I don't mind if I never meet her
Just as long as I see her on screen.

CHORUS 3: (As Chorus 1)

CHORUS 4: (As Chorus 2)
Track Name: Death Of An Angel
VERSE 1:
The only one, who meant me good
She picked me up when nobody else would
Those piercing eyes, that photo face
And no one knows the friendship we embraced.

BRIDGE 1:
Now she's locked away in chains
And now, I can't stand to see her change.

CHORUS 1:
And as we look into her eyes, just as we pass her by
The spirit's gone, the laughter dies, and it hurts because I
Tried to save her, tried to be brave for her
Give it up and walk the line for her but
Gotta cry myself to sleep, and all because an angel's died tonight
All because an angel's died tonight.

VERSE 2:
Cos my love will never go
Be by your side if you would just say so
I cannot rest, and let it be
Please don't take my hope and soul from me.

BRIDGE 2:
Now, the Devil's got her in his claws
And now, don't know what my life is for.

CHORUS 2:
And when I stop and see her cry, can't go and dry her eyes
Don't ask me how, don't ask me why, but it hurts because I
Used to know her, used to be close to her
Still could have been, but as it stands
Gotta cry myself to sleep, and all because my angel's passed me by
All because our angel's died tonight.

PRE FINAL CHORUS:
Gotta say, it shatters me in two
And now I'm a fucking wreck.

CHORUS 3: (As Chorus 1)

OUTRO:
Tonight (repeat)
