Track Name: What Can You Do
They said you ain’t got nothing to say
Bring out your dead, we’ll make them go away
My heart’s on my sleeve
So I’ll be brief
And my soul’s in my shoes
You were standing by the Bargain Booze
Oh you know the day will come
When we’re too old to die young

The dove can’t sing, the sword, allies with the pen
Arm in a sling at the mercy of Number Ten
It’s a fine world sometimes
Oh sometimes
Peace and love have retired
With the ashes of last winter’s fires
Do we have a buyer?
Do we feel inspired?

When I think of love I think of you
Sat there looking lonely, drinking cans of special brew
When I think of love I think of you
But what can you do?

Through the gloom the streetlight hummed
Gone too soon, and we were having so much fun
Oh you wouldn’t go
We were stoned
Please, don’t go far
You hold your cigarette like a movie star
Crossed lovers, undercover of dark
The perfect place to start

When I think of love I think of you
Sat there looking lonely, drinking cans of special brew
When I think of love I think of you
But what can you do?

When I think of love I think of you
Sat there looking lonely, drinking cans of special brew
Thinking what if life like this was all you ever knew?
What if every single lie they ever said was true?
But what can you do?
Track Name: The Lost Art Of Romance
What time was the dawn on the judgement day?
My dreams of the future led me astray
At the end of the pier, a tear in the rain
Sinking into the sea, this cold and cloudy day
This cold and cloudy day

And the law’s gonna shoot you down
But it isn’t the law that’ll shoot you down
Don’t you know the law’s gonna shoot you down
So you better get out of town

Hey babe, come on won’t you take a chance
Open your eyes and join me watching our words dance
Up the dosage and exchange a glance
We’ll play a game called ‘The lost art of romance’
The lost hearts of romance

And the law’s gonna shoot you down
But it isn’t the law that’ll shoot you down
Don’t you know the law’s gonna shoot you down
So you better get out of town

Don’t look at me
I ain’t no revolution
Don’t look at me
I ain’t no revolutionary
Don’t look at me
I ain’t no revolution
But tell me, am I wrong?
Together we’re strong

Look in the mirror, what would it have you believe?
They twist and scheme and oh, I’m not too keen
What’s the price of millennial apologies?
Or the sins of the father, oh ain’t that just like me?
Ain’t that just like me?

And the law’s gonna shoot you down
But it isn’t the law that’ll shoot you down
Don’t you know the law’s gonna shoot you down
So you better get out of town

Don’t look at me
I ain’t no revolution
Don’t look at me
I ain’t no revolutionary
Don’t look at me
I ain’t no revolution
But tell me, am I wrong?
Together we’re strong

But who’s accountable?

Don’t look at me
I ain’t no revolution
Don’t look at me
I ain’t no revolutionary
Don’t look at me
I ain’t no revolution
But tell me, am I wrong?
Together we’re strong
Track Name: A Change Is Gonna Come Around Here
A knock upon my door
Another uniform
No one here is alone
When they’re tapping all our phones

She looked down at her feet
And sang in prophecy:
‘A darker night than hell
Though the dawn is darker still’

Freedom is your gun
But I’m telling you my son
There’ll be no escape
Whilst ever you’re the only one

The others they look on
They think that nothing’s wrong
Sat on the production line
Isn’t it all too convenient to be anything but a lie?

I want to tell you, I want to know
This line is just too much to tow
A change is gonna come around here

Give me TV and I’ll get by
Work and work until I die
They’ll have your name and number
And the pennies off your eyes

How can I accept
That it’s just the way it is?
I’ve got to serve my time
And dream of how I could have lived

The train’s derailed and the rules you’ll bend
Our dreams were made to break in the end
A change is gonna come around here

Death and glory or the status quo?
Fuck ‘em it’s just rock and roll
A change is gonna come around here
