Track Name: Twelve out of ten
At a loss for words, when the thought stirs,
Just what this place it means to me.
Not just our soil, to the world we’re loyal, cos we’re thinking internationally.
Despite the forces pushing us under, if it’s not in your make up to surrender.
You have to stand to find your feet

And I drew up a list of all the things I’d wanted to see before the day gets old,
12 out of 10, out of town and back again, hate and love and need the smoke,
Every green and friend,
‘Cos that’s who we are,

The worlds not a lonely place, when a hundred faces make you smile,
Treat the situation with gravity laughing all the while.
When you see the crowding of events, and we're upon experiments,
Remember it's worth fighting for, for every street, against every war,
You have to stand to find your feet.

And I drew up a list of all the things I’d wanted to see before the day gets old,
12 out of 10, out of town and back again, hate and love and need the smoke,
every green and friend,
‘Cos that’s who we are.

All the possibilities, incompatible with, rampant inequality,
All the possibilities, inevitable through, the struggle for humanity.
Track Name: Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
Sharp eyed, lip locked, rolling high stakes,
Nothing that we couldn't take,
Blows fell but never left a mark,
Find your way, receding dark,
Another cliched teen drama, unfolds before our eyes,
Another slew of eggshell missteps, lost before we tried,

WOOOOOAAAAAH, If i look back i'm lost (x2)
WOOOOOOAAAAH, And we won't go back there (x2)

Once burned, twice shy and running scared,
No way that you can prepare,
Invincibility is lost, you feel it all, the sudden cost,
Another cliched teen drama, unfolds before our eyes,
Another slew of eggshell missteps, lost before we tried.
Track Name: The world's a stage
Your words occupy a space in time that now is long forgotten,
The words that meant so much have lost all meaning.
You commodify your dissent at the sake of your integrity,
You’re a law unto yourself and your music will never make me…
Feel like you mean it, like you’re singing from you’re heart.
One day your mask will slip, and you’re back to the start.

They say the world’s a stage and we’re all players in this game,
They say the world’s a stage.

Your attitudes a presis of your social situation
No ethics, no community, it’s impossible for us to believe,
That you feel like you mean it, like youre singing from your heart,
One day your mask will slip, and you’re back to the start.

They say the world’s a stage and we’re all players in this game,
They say the world’s a stage.

Sing from your heart.
Track Name: Built to Last
And all around, things have never looked so beautiful,
The bright lights and skylines, rooftops and high-rise blocks that reach out and touch the sky
Don’t get me wrong I’m scared to death, this chapters not been written yet,
But I’m fresh on ink and imagination.
The passing afternoons are our friends, the nights we wish would never end.
The people we meet along the way who make us who we are.

And the days creep by so quickly,
And the nights leave us too fast,
I’m writing to you from the top of the world,
‘Cos this is built to last.

I’m in the same old shoes with new ideas, and walking new paths,
Forks in the road with no signposts, but I welcome the adventure,
May your music break my ears, and your pavements scrape my knees,
I am forever grateful for the way this makes me feel.
And this town can swallow me whole, and I’ll welcome everything with my open arms,
‘Cos the foundations are too strong, and if it breaks I know we’ll never fall alone.

And the days creep by so quickly,
And the nights leave us too fast,
I’m writing to you from the top of the world,
‘Cos this is built to last.
