Track Name: The Blurst Of Times
It started back nine years ago, a bedroom and some tapes
Four friends of mine and I went on the road
We played this island from top to bottom
Made some brand new friends
Screamed so fucking loud, my throat gave out

Do you remember?
Lost youth spent in a van
The fights, bright lights and the sleepless nights?
I remember
My friends were close at hand
We fell apart but don’t regret

Every show, set and song is etched onto my mind
Every note’s still ringing in my ear
And even though in the end it all came crashing down
We left a legacy in our wake

Do you remember?
Lost youth spent in a van
The fights, bright lights and the sleepless nights?
I remember
My friends were close at hand
We fell apart but don’t regret a fucking thing

Since the straw broke the camel’s back
We’ve all moved on, changed, let go
Those times still have a place in my heart
And I’ll never forget a single part

I won’t forget
We won’t forget
I won’t forget
We won’t forget
I won’t forget and I’ll never regret
I won’t forget and I’ll never regret
Track Name: (Ravishing Rick) Rude Awakening
The greatest lie I ever tell, is lie I tell myself
Day after day those years I spent with you
Open wide I’d fall
Hook, line and sinker
To all the alluring noises flowing from your pretty lips

It took a rude awakening when reality’s bite set in
For me to realise how things were
Sometimes subtlety is best served with a hammer blow
But when the blood had dried I’d learned my lessons well

There was never a chance it’d ever work out
But I clung to hope none the less
A little older and wiser I realise
How naive I was to live a lie
I took the chance but knew deep inside
It was a risk, gamble and would wound my pride
Hearts were broken, bridges burned, mistakes made
And lessons learned
Track Name: Without A Whimper
Scream for a change
We know the routine
We’ve heard it a thousand times
It's time to step down from your soapbox
The smoke and mirrors can’t fool us any more

You said actions speak louder, you pass by without a whimper
You said actions speak louder, you pass by without a whimper

Where’s the conviction?
No fire, no passion
No belief in what you say
It’s clear for all to see
In every tale you weave
Your talk is incredibly cheap

You said actions speak louder, you pass by without a whimper
You said actions speak louder, you pass by without a whimper

You talk the talk about walking the walk
But the path’s too hard
So you’ll never walk the fucking walk

All the banners you hide behind
Nothing more than a desperate cry
All the banners you hide behind
Nothing more than a desperate cry for attention

You said actions speak louder, you pass by without a whimper
You said actions speak louder, you pass by without a whimper
You said actions speak louder, you pass by without a fucking whimper
Track Name: Unforgettable
Awoken by the light breaking my window
As the sun splits the sky
Surrounded in good company
Watching those miles pass us by

Unsure of where the road may take us
To towns & cities we’ve never seen
So far away from home
But we don’t care

No need for a map and compass
We’ll let the light guide the way
In our search for something incredible
Punctuated by the stereo

A week away
What a relief
I've never felt so free
Come Monday morning I'll be smiling
Knowing I made the most of my leave

Unsure of where the road may take us
To towns & cities we’ve never seen
So far away from home
But we don’t care

These are our golden days
It feels like they'll never end
These days are unforgettable
Endless smiles with my friends

Unsure of where the road may take us
To towns & cities we’ve never seen
So far away from home
But we don’t care
We don’t care
Track Name: Carry You
A senseless act
Punctured the hourglass
Every hour tumbled out
With cold intent
Until the man we loved ceased to function anymore

Just a child
I could barely understand
Where’s my brother?
Where’s my guiding hand?

I carry you
Wherever I may go
I carry you
I carry you
Forever in my heart
Forever with me

Try as I might
I find it hard
Not to look back in anger
The memories
From better days still help to raise a smile

Your absent space
Reminds me well to
Cherish every single breath

I carry you
Wherever I may go
I carry you
I carry you
Forever in my heart
Forever with me

I carry you
I carry you

There isn’t a single day
I don’t think of you
Every day for almost twenty years
A vacant space, never to be replaced
His father, your son, my brother

I carry you
I carry you
Track Name: 9 To 65
Push it away,
I’m faking smiles again just to get me through the working day
Shaking hands, stabbing backs
That’s how it works in the office act

Monday to Friday
9 till 65
I’m locked in here against my will
With no escape that’s how it feels
I’m worn to the point of exhaustion and staggering home
And so it begins again tomorrow

Push it away
Push it away
Track Name: Skinned Knees and Bruises
There was a time in my life
I wouldn’t cross the door,
Skinned knees and bruises weighed me down
They left me with a heavy heart
One filled with doubt and regret
But time’s been kind to me
I’ve let go of my fears and now
I’m weightless

There’s no point in holding onto days that never ever came to pass
Those skinned knees will Heal with time and before you know it
You’ll turn it around
Turn It Around

I was a patron saint of nostalgic dates
But now the good old days don’t seem so good to me
No longer fly the flag for the bygone times
Greener grass may lay ahead
And I won’t miss a thing because I’m reminiscing

There’s no point in holding onto days that never ever came to pass
My outlook’s much brighter now
It won’t be darkened by the past
By the past

I’ve covered these walls in my thoughts for far too long
It’s time to sing a different song
Break down these walls
They’ve stood for far too long
It’s time to sing a different song

I'm coming alive
Track Name: Stumble, Fall, Get Up
You’ve stumbled and fallen
Shown no signs of getting up
I know it’s hard down there
Without a hope or a care
Inside looking out on
A world you’ve left behind
We’ve not given up on you
Let’s work to see this through

All your ambitions went up in smoke
But you can still rise from these ashes
And stand atop this world again

Lick your wounds, pick yourself up
And don’t let the fall keep you down
It’s only when you feel beaten that you’re truly defeated

Take a deep breath
No time to hide
Take the chance
It’s time to rise

It’s time to rise
It’s time to rise
It’s time to rise

Come on out of the darkness and let the light in
It’s time to rise again
Phoenix from the ashes
Come on out of the darkness and let the light in
It’s time to rise again
Phoenix from the ashes
Track Name: Red
I was out there looking for a while
Couldn’t find what I was searching for
Just as I’d given up and thought I’d had enough
Along you came to brighten my door

From the very first moment
I’ve had the feeling
You’re the one for me
The best part of all of this
We barely even scratched the surface

It might sound contrived
But I cherish every second
Every day I wake thankful of where I’m placed

Here’s to our past
And everything that’s yet to come our way
Things are looking brighter every day

There have been times when we’ve been up and down
But here we are as strong as ever
No matter what’s thrown our way
I know I’m here to stay
I’m in this for the long run

It’s like we just got started
Still got that feeling you’re the one for me
Although I know you better
We’ve haven't even scratched the surface

It might sound contrived
But I cherish every second
Every day I wake thankful of where I’m placed

Here’s to our past
And everything that’s yet to come our way
Things are looking brighter every day

Here’s to our past
And everything that’s yet to come our way
Things are looking brighter every day

For you and I
I see no end in sight
For you and I
I see no end in sight

I see no, I see no
I see no end in sight
I see no, I see no
I see no end in sight
