Track Name: Get Ready!
Somethings's burning.
Enough of shouting into silence.
We've got them running; to make them pay would be a bonus.
Up there in their ivory towers feeling smug and safe and lazy.
We're coming. We're united, all intent to bring them all down.
We're living in time of social decline though there's plenty to go round.
The more we're denied the more we're inclined to come and burn your castle down.

Put pen to paper, pass around and fill the pages.
Books rekindled. Perfect binding. Need no upgrade.
We are firm in our opinion, moral compass set.
Unwavering.
And for the record they're not for sale, the things we value.
We're living in time of social decline though there's plenty to go round.
The more we're denied the more we're inclined to come and burn your castle to the ground.

Take a stand, make a difference, hit the street with your dissent.
We are coming, everyone. We won't stop until they've paid us back.
You cannot keep us down for long. We are legion in our numbers, we are strong. So enjoy your parties in your second homes and we'll be marching on your fortress made of Cotswold stone.

Get ready. Hold steady. We're coming.
Track Name: Recklessly
I've never known a life that you would think was normal and fulfilling.
I've never known that much of anything.
I find it hard connecting with the everyday. The easy things get in the way of trying to get from B to A.
And when I first met you, you knew me through and through.
Together when apart, two minds with a single heart that beats recklessly.

What brought was close was a love of the simple things and the joy that they always bring.
When we're left alone we really sing.
And when I first met you, you knew me through and through.
Together when apart, two minds with a single heart that beats recklessly.

Away from prying eyes we'll find there is no rhyme or reason, and we'll stand together not alone. We'll build ourselves a home and keep each other warm.
And when I first met you, you knew me through and through.
Together when apart, two minds with a single heart that beats recklessly.
Track Name: Terms And Conditions Apply
Mechanical failure.
A terrible song by your favourite band.
A fall on your face in front of your dad.
Scoring the only goal- should've gone in the opposite net.
A day in the park you'd rather forget.

And now I understand why terms and conditions apply.

A walting civilian marching along in an army parade, gets stuck in a van and taken away.

And we're all living a lie because terms and conditions apply.
So next time you give it a try... terms and conditions apply.

You thought you had the perfect job and you thought you had the perfect partner, but then just when you thought you'd got it together it starts coming apart.

And now you're wondering why terms and conditions apply.
So next time you give it a try... terms and conditions apply.
Track Name: How Do You Sleep At Night?
Shiny shiny thing make it all feel better, put it on the card 'til the next red letter. Have another holiday in the sun in a luxury apartment, hanging out in nightclubs having fun with the marketing department.

It doesn't make it right. How do you sleep at night?

Mutton dressed as lamb with your mint sauce make up, you couldn't give a damn about a family breakup. A bit of bad news, you take it on the chin because you're a real big hitter. Have another slimline tonic and gin because you don't do bitter.

It doesn't make it right. How do you sleep at night?

You close the door and pour another drink. You're logging on but it's only you reflected in the screen.

It doesn't make it right. How do you sleep at night?

Can't depend on virtual friends but it's too late to make amends.
Track Name: Orbital
Raving and racing, erasing the past
Replace the landscape with concrete and glass
Maggie's ditch built to keep out the poor and seal off the city for nuclear war.
Slow down. you're moving too fast. The seer of Shepperton is having a blast.
Low and high pressurized sodium glare
Aircraft hangars house panic in the air
Paranoia. Who is in control?
Have I got the right change to pay for the toll?
Borderlands and liminal space. The motorway corridor is getting wider.
A bite from a vampire. A heat-ray from Mars.
Traffic. Ennui. Progress leaves scars
London an island entire of it's own.
A road leading nowhere.
It all feels like home.
Celebrate the sprawl. It's getting wider.
Track Name: A Fearless Man
Freeform style and I'll be home in a while
A fearless man. I'm doing all that I can.
City lights always bright to suburban souls.
Come the days' end I feel like I'm on a roll
Summer days and I'm lost in the haze
Drink more wine, intoxicated by fine.
Streets are alive and I've never felt so free.
There's beauty here, it's so near and it's all for me.
We cannot choose the times in which we're born.
We may not have much but what we've got is our own.
The only thing we can depend upon...
On nights like this, who needs tomorrow?
Summer days and I'm lost in a haze.
Drink more wine, intoxicated by fine.
Freeform style and I'll be home in a while.
A fearless man... it's a political act.
