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

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

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

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

Carry You 02:58
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

9 To 65 00:32
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

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

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

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
