Lyrics

The Shape Of Things to Come

Written By: Raff Eragona

Up talking and drinking while all the folk that go to work for a living are going to work but don't want to be there, what's the point, the point's that we take all this for granted, we should count our blessings, but you don't think that way when you're caught up in the moment,

What did I do last night, how did we end up here, where did everybody go, we're wasting away, and we'll never get it back..

Something tells me this is the shape of things to come, I can't see it changing, any time now we're going to burn out but that's not going to slow up down, we're just getting started, oh there'll be consequences, but you'll never see it that way when you're caught up in the moment

What did I do last night, how did we end up here, where did everybody go, we're wasting away, and we'll never get it back

They want to see us fail, they love it when we go a little too far off the rails.......

The Late 90's

Written By: Raff Eragona

I think I'm just gonna go, oh this place is like a zoo, maybe I'm just out of touch, maybe we've just grown apart, I used to finish your sentences now I don't know what you're on about,
Tick tock talk talk talk talk you talk a lot,
One last night for old times sake but is it gonna be the same?
Do you remember that melody we used to sing in rev but we'd never know the words think it was something from the 70's, haven't heard it since but it reminds me of that Saturday we ended up in Cavendish coz no where would let us in.
Riot at the old haunts, worth it for the laugh, everybody's kicking off, just like back in the Jaffa Cake, I don't see the attraction now, but straight back in once I get a taste,
Tick tock talk talk talk talk I talk a lot,
One last night for old times sake but is it gonna be the same?
Do you remember that melody we used to sing in rev but we'd never know the words think it was something from the 70's, haven't heard it since but it reminds me of that Saturday we ended up in Cavendish coz no where would let us in..
Do you remember that melody we used to sing in rev but we'd never know the words think it was something from the 70's, haven't heard it since but it reminds me of that Saturday we ended up in Cavendish coz no where would let us in..

Gezellig

Written By: Raff Eragona

Darling I was a sorry state when you found me, you shook me up and you spun me round, I will always remember that.

Flashbacks, castle, cigars and a smahsed glass jumping through hedges and that's all I remember, missed the train in the morning was that intentional we'll never know well I may as well move in,

Don't look at me like that because you know you love it,

Darling I was a sorry state when you found me, you shook me up and you spun me round, I will always remember that.
