Track Name: Missiles On The Roof
Sat around waiting for Cameron to announce the big finale
Confetti rains from the sky and we have a laugh about the months gone by
David, I don’t want to burst your bubble
You’re fucking up shit and you’re stirring up trouble
All your boys in the Bullingdon club will head out with their heads down

The Olympics, enjoy it, you should be having fun
There’s missiles on the roof in central London
We’ve got parades of the torch through every broken town
Don’t you even think of taking that Union Jack down.

Sat around waiting for Cameron to announce the big finale
Confetti rains from the sky and we have a laugh about the months gone by
David, we’ll load the queen into the tower
Fire her off to the moon, she will shower
Joyful masses down below
As they wait for Barlow to finish the show
Track Name: Lunch Break
Sick and fucking tired of the drudgery
Everybody wants to make some money
Looking at the clouds wishing my life away
I’m scared, I’m scared, I’m skint

Well I know now I should be working
But I’m sitting here on this wall
I’m watching the sparrows fly against blue skies so pure
To feel and see the trees dance in this blackened industrial town
And to witness this perfection I know I must come down

Nature will dance and shine
Our bodies age in time.
Neighbour, I know you only live next door
Don’t let this system put us to war

To see life find its way through these heavy railways
Blankets of steel and stone
Red, greens and yellows, no locks this is our home
The sky is what’s above us and our feet that hold the ground
No need to stay, no need to go home.

And if all this beauty could exist in this gap of time
To dance out of the ether beyond the lines
And to think that bastard workplace could exist on the other side
I’ll be there in 30 minutes time
Track Name: Sunshine
“Look man, I like you,
You’ve got your heart and your head in the same place”
I thought right? That offers some insight.
Cos my head’s been up my arse and my stomach feels the same
Here comes anxiety again

But oh, that sickening feeling I get 10 times a day
When I look at people doing normal things
Like for sale signs, happy families and the kids in the park
These are the things that tear me apart.

It’s not that I don’t like you, just finding it hard today
I look in your eyes, I need to look away
This is not a sad song, I don’t mean to moan
Just wanted to know that I’m not alone.

At times like this I take the child’s advice, I see the sunshine
There’s nothing in life to hold on to.
Track Name: They Said We Could Have Everything In The Argos Catalogue
This is not where headlines are made,
This is where bodies decay.
From our broken red brick castles we hang tattered flags
We thank our leaders for benevolence.

On the box they call it progress, a long list of ideals
So play the game there’s plenty for us all.
Well I’m stood here washing dishes for £6.09 an hour,
Waiting for my bunk up the ladder.

One day at a time, we’ll build on what this system leaves behind.

Well this endless road to progress, it’s diminishing
As the bottom falls out of everything
They say our utopia is a long way down the line,
We already toe the line

One day at a time, we’ll build on what this system leaves behind.
