CONCRETE SEA 02:35
Rain pools in the street Cold bites into your veins Every face has a scar Getting sucked down into the tar Her hands are swollen and bruised Blown out blue tattoos A cigarette for comfort Solace in her bottle of booze She has a story to tell Another personal hell The whole city is deaf to a person like her Everyday we struggle to stay afloat In a concrete sea that could swallow us down Hold my hand and hold your breath on dry land So we don't drown Struggle to stay afloat in a concrete sea Struggle to stay afloat in a concrete sea Hold my hand and hold your breath on dry land So we don't drown

PAULINE 02:12
Pauline's got a new bloke, what a wanker Where'd she pick him up? scroungy bastard Put his hand up my skirt, sleazy scumbag Lazy parasite, fucking ex-squaddie She's no confidence, same old story Thinks he knows the lot, what a dickhead Tries to show her up, macho bastard Take your warning, sling your hook mate I don't want to lose my friend Cos her bloke is a dickhead And he ruins the night when he shows up Pauline, you're in a rut Listen up now, she's our friend. Got her back 'til the end And you'll rue the night, if you show up Sling it, just sling your hook Pauline, you're in a rut He's no good for you

STRAY BULLET 01:49
Dealers that have the tender A community lives in fear Untouchable men of violence Wrecking lives and selling gear Your ma won't sell her body Your bro won't steal your score You won't turn on the light in the middle of the night And find a hard-man at your door Pills and powders, it's just a lark Have some fun, there's no harm done Not your family being ripped apart Dealers that have the tender A community lives in fear Untouchable men of violence Wrecking lives and selling gear Fairtrade coffee, union dues Might cleanse your conscience But can't you see the truth? No-one 'round your way ever had to dodge a stray bullet

NOWHERE ELSE 02:43
Our scene, our fight Poseurs, yuppies can stand aside Cos we're going to get pissed tonight Our crew, side by side Unspoken bonds last our whole lives And we're gonna have the craic tonight I've kept it together the whole week long I've tried so hard to toe the line I work all week, pay the bills, pay my dues Keep in touch with my roots, with my crew Cos we don't fit in nowhere else We'll sing, we'll fight Nowhere to hide Good night white pride And we're gonna use our fists tonight Our crew, side by side Unspoken bonds last our whole lives And we're going to have the craic tonight Nowhere else We don't fit in nowhere else

7am phone calling Backup Loader needed to come in Still in the scratch I need the cash though Shake last night's beer off Lace up my steel toes Get out the door Oh what a pointless waste of labour Oh what a fucking waste of time Oh what a pointless waste of labour Build it up, just to tear it down Band was a no-show Handy few quid though My effort wasted But Extra Stout I can taste it

RUNDOWN TOWN 03:13
Nobody under 50 Undertakers are busy Grocery closed after 80 years All of the chemists do okay Where is the hope in a rundown town? Where can it be found? Smack is getting a foothold Five bookies on high street Queues out the welfare door On signing-on day Shop fronts like rotten teeth Street names ancient memories of industry This town is left to ghosts and decay I wish it wasn't this way I'm looking for hope Hope in a rundown town
