Lyrics

Hangman

Written By: Ryan

Queing for a bag of rice whilst burning in the sun
The waters full of parasites, the heartaches just begun
We use up all our fossil fuels and fell our promised land
We talk on mobile phones all day and think its all in hand

Well natures the jury, the hangman and the judge
No mercy for the innocent, no time to make a stand

(Chorus)
The tides are high while the earth is scorched
Lord what have we done
The icecaps are melting the ozone is thin
Lord what have we done

Its ten miles walk to the nearest tap, through wind and rain and storm
No medicine or food to drink for the baby newly born
We use up all our heaters and fill up all our cars
And what a lovely view it is when we look into the stars

Well natures the jury, the hangman and the judge
No mercy for the innocent, no time to make a stand

(Chorus)

Queing for a bag of rice whilst burning in the sun
The waters full of parasites, the heartaches just begun
Its ten miles walk to the nearest tap, through wind and rain and storm
No medicine or food to drink for the baby newly born

Well natures the jury, the hangman and the judge
No mercy for the innocent, no time to make a stand

(Chorus) x 2

Going all the way

Written By: Harris/Sharp/Miles/Sefton

Standing outside the gate drinking with my friends
Waiting for the festival, a weekend that never ends
This week of booze will screw your brain up
Everything will be o.k.
I hope I can remember to talk

(Chorus)
I've gone away with the boys today
I've gone away
I've got my ticket and I'm on my way
No more messing round today
No more messing round today
The boys are going all the way

Walking through the barracades to fields as muddy as hell
Trying to carry three crates of lager and two rounds to go
Punk core will mess you up
Whats your poison or are you too afraid to tell

Chorus

Last Orders

Written By: Guns on the Roof

(VERSE)
We’ve had a good night now
Daddy its time to go home
Don’t get another pint now
Daddy its time to go home
Don’t start a fight now
Daddy its time to go home
I know you really love me but
Daddy its time to go home

(PRE)
The world will stand to say
What came of yesterday
We can’t stay

(CHORUS)
We cannot stay we wont be long
Still standin proud still goin strong
We cannot say we wont be long
Still standin proud still goin strong

(VERSE)
My mothers on the phone now
Daddy its time to go home
Its time to call a cab now
Daddy its time to go home
Put your arms around me now
Daddy its time to go home
I know you really love me but
Daddy its time to go home

(PRE)
(CHORUS)

(CHORUS)
