"The sound of disobedience, Dublin’s SICKBOY have emerged from the capitals Punk scene with the rampant sloganeering of the clash and the isolated bass hooks of Joy Division dripping down their front.." NME

Biography

Lyrics

Taken Away In A Car

Written By: Daniel Doherty

VERSE 1

A machine load of thoughts doing the rounds in his head

As our smiles turned to frowns you were taken away in a car taken away in a car

VERSE 2

Well its a crying shame whats walking around upstairs as our smiles turned to frowns you were taken away in a car taken away to the stars

CHORUS

Sick and tired of killing the joy
Sick and tired of wasting my time

VERSE 3

Lets all fall in love and put poision in our head because they boys dont understand with the setting sun i lose the head with everyone

CHORUS

Sick and tired of killing the joy
Sick and tired of wasting my time

OUTRO

With the setting sun

I lose the head with evryone

VERSE 1

Shit TV your all a disgrace with no feeling I could care less about it
He makes money but he's hollow inside with no feeling
I could care less about it
I could care less about it

VERSE 2

He's coked up and he'll smash your face in an instant
I could care less about it
24 hours a day
I could care less about it

CHORUS

Silly boy got burnt
Silly girl got burnt
Silly boy got burnt
Silly girl got burnt

Here come the boys and the girls
Here come the boys and the girls
Girls girls

Here come the boys and the girls
boys and the girls

VERSE 3

She's rotten she'll from the inside out with no feeling
I could care less about it
She's rotten she'll turn you inside out no feeling

I could care less about it
24 hours a day
I could care less about it

CHORUS

Silly boy got burnt
Silly girl got burnt
Silly boy got burnt
Silly girl got burnt

Here come the boys and the girls
Here come the boys and the girls
Girls girls

OUTRO

I wouldn't piss on you if you were on fire your on fire
I wouldn't dream of it if you were on fire your on fire

Kick Against The Wall

Written By: Daniel Doherty

VERSE 1

Do you remember liquid nights jack and gills and blinding lights its been to long its been to long

You don't have to suffer anyone

Yeah I hear the fire alarm alarm alarm

VERSE 2

Your the size of a fly on wall the size of a fly on the wall your just small your just small

You don't have to suffer anyone

Lift me up and kick me to the ground
Lift me up and bring me right back down
Lift me up and kick me to the ground
