Track Name: Current State Of Play
So let’s talk about society scars
You ask us to believe in you when we’re filling in cards
But you don’t vote, you know that’s a joke
And we have to choose a crook, a thief or a fraud

Ill-manor man, a man of words, a man of war
Two barrel blast, that machine that you bought
Short on change, short on time, what’s the cause?
Society’s only as rich as the poor now

So tell me – just whose laws are these
That I live by? Whose key’s in the lock they wanna force me behind?
Do we agree to bow to your terms?
These rules that I’ve got no choice but to abide by

It’s getting crowded ‘round here, can’t breathe, now I’m suffocating
Say the country’s full, it’s full of cunts if I’m pushed to say it
Now we’re supposed to be the new generation
But when a boy loves a boy – outrageous if they have a baby
Ladies loving ladies for the purposes of entertainment
Haven’t got a problem with it, grab a camera, make ‘em famous
Stranger things have happened than a relapse of the social conscience
Haven’t got a clue but still you vote them into office

I can’t eat, I can’t sleep, I can’t dream
I can’t speak, I can’t shout, I can’t scream
I can’t see, I can’t hear, I can’t grieve
I can’t work and I can’t pay, now they tell me I can’t leave, why?

Ill-manor man, a man of words, a man of war
Two barrel blast, that machine that you bought
Short on change, short on time, what’s the cause?
Society’s only as rich as the poor now
Ill-manor man, a man of words, a man of war
Two barrel blast, that machine that you bought
Short on change, short on time, what’s the cause?
Society’s only as rich as the poor now

Ill-manor man, a man of words, a man of
Society’s only as rich as the poor now
Track Name: Safe From Harm
No I can’t take it, I fake it
The smile that you see
Blatant the hatred, so vacant
Your love for me
And please agree that, your vision
For society
Is just a tactic, to hide your
Misplaced atrocities

We’re not safe from harm!
We’re not safe from…

One day maybe we’ll make it
Ignite the spark that you might see, ‘cause
It’s in people we depend
And I know that you depend on me
It’s not as easy as they say
But it’s oh so clear to me now
You’re too late to make a place that’s safe
From harm, it’s just a dream

Tie knots, oh so complex
Its context, plots have got to be
Hierarchy, class wars
Man, it’s an odyssey
And now that we see, the caged bird
It still sings so sweet
‘til it fights back, meaning to
Cause harm to the hand that feeds

We’re not safe from harm!
We’re not safe from…

One day maybe we’ll make it
Ignite the spark that you might see, ‘cause
It’s in people we depend
And I know that you depend on me
It’s not as easy as they say
But it’s oh so clear to me now
You’re too late to make a place that’s safe
From harm, it’s just a dream

We’re not safe from harm!
We’re not safe from…

One day maybe we’ll make it
Ignite the spark that you might see, ‘cause
It’s in people we depend
And I know that you depend on me
It’s not as easy as they say
But it’s oh so clear to me now
You’re too late to make a place that’s safe
From harm, it’s just a dream

Safe from harm, it’s just a dream
Safe from harm, it’s just a dream
Safe from harm, it’s just a dream
Safe from harm, it’s just a dream
Track Name: Grids & Markers
Hey, what’cha doing with your life?
Why can’t you work a nine-to-five?
Punk don’t make no money, right? [right!]
So how do you think you will survive?
[Eyes on the prize] won’t suffice
[Hey, lace up your shoes] and grab a tie
[Hey] just lose the cap, cover your tatts
And get your arse in line

[Hey!]
Maybe we’ll win one day
Don’t care what no one says
Got to be a better way
I don’t know what to do

So best impress and pass the test
‘cause man he’s not just gonna hand it over
You look a mess, torn jeans and vest
You’re too deep in hate from your tiny mind
[We needed change], a change of heart
[Hey, scream for your scene] while it falls apart
[Hey] these grids and markers you’re living in
Will one day crush your soul

[Hey!]
Maybe we’ll win one day
Don’t care what no one says
Got to be a better way
I don’t know what to do

We needed change
Scream for your scene
These grids and markers you’re living in
Will one day crush your soul

[Hey!]
Maybe we’ll win one day
Don’t care what no one says
Got to be a better way
I don’t know what to do
[Hey!]
Maybe we’ll win one day
Don’t care what no one says
Got to be a better way
I don’t know what to do
