Cheeky cunt.

Hectic
To the multistorey car park
with our friends
drinking from a bottle
of White Lightning
____________________
____________________
it's smoking, chronic, hectic!

And it seems that
nothing now will ever change
And it seems that
we're all out on our own again
And it seems that
nothing now will ever change
And it seems that
we're all out on our own again
And it seems that
nothing now will ever change
And it seems that
we're all out on our own again

We'll convene at mine
3pm to play
Sega Megadrive
Golden Axe and Sonic all day
never played it
(I'll teach ya)
tried to hack it
(I'll beat ya)
that's Pendell making rhymes in the corner with a litre
of the finest Scrumpy Jack
whilst PDex pops out the latest big club track
___________ to justice
___________ King Kong
we'll all gather round the piano for an little sing song

Oh if I could kidnap that feeling
the one that mounts offers from your mind
I'd make no demands, no ransoms

Cus I never set it free
cus I never set it free

Oh if I could kidnap that feeling
the one that mounts offers from your mind
I'd make no demands, no ransoms

Cus I never set it free
Cus I never set it free
Cus I never set it free

All those halcyon days and halcyon nights
and how to unite
before we began to realise that this ain't right!

And it seems that
nothing now will ever change
And it seems that
we're all out on our own again
And it seems that
nothing now will ever change
And it seems that
we're all out on our own again
And it seems that
nothing now will ever change
And it seems that
we're all out on our own again
all out on our own again
all out on our own again
all out on our own again

Solidarity

Here tonight I clock a thousand heads
Here to unite, through common dreads
Now who's with me? (Ho!)
Now who's with me? (Ho!)

Something drips inside, that's been groaning for a thousand years
Now we can no longer hide the immediacy of these fears
Our names will not be written on water
And we don't need an ark (No way!)
One day I know, the dam will collapse
And we will beat the current!

Yes... what you got for me?
Oooh!


And now the flood gates will open

YAAAAWWWWWWWWWRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You cannot hold back the tide!
You cannot hold back the tide!

We will sing as one in solidarity! We will swim together
No longer treading water, we're flowing with the tide
And you can taste the night, don't waste the night!

We will sing as one in solidarity! We will stick together, and now...
And still we will be here, (we're not hiding) standing like statues

Yeah! The time is now!

Solidarity, solidarity, we will stand together (We're not hiding)
(And still we will be here, standing like statues) x lots

There's my 2 cents

Cheers d00d. I just spent far too long on Step Up aswell haha
The spoken word part in this is cool as fuck

Step Up

If our own lives aren't directly affected,
Then it don't need to be corrected!
How fucking cute is our ignorance!
Yeah we're insidious!
As they're praying for deliverance
We shelter ourselves from the outcrys!
We'll believe for ourselves from the outside!
Cause I know!
We have greatness within us!

We have greatness within us,
Innovative, giving, determined,
It's time for the best in us to come out.

SEARCH!
And you can find imbalance
SEEK!
You can destroy imbalance
And you can change your values
Steeeep up todaaay! (Step up today)

YES!

SOLID!

Now let me get one thing straight
YA KNOW WHAT!
Sometimes I do wish apples were our currency
So all your horded millions would rot in their vault
And that'd teach you to lay off the assault that you're barraging on the lands of the poor
And I know we've all got enough problems of our own,
but they're not show-stoppers sitting on our throne in a home,
heated by a life unknown to the exploited.

AND IT'S SO FRUSTRATING!
THE FUCKING STATE WE'RE IN!


If our own lives aren't directly affected,
Then it don't seem to be corrected!

SEARCH!
And you can find imbalance

And you can change your values
Steeeep up todaaay! (Step up today)

Well I've done my best. It's a bit hard having a different accent but I think it's almost 100% right. And thanks to Connor who edited it/changed some lines.

Fanfare For The Conscious Man

Each nation used to provide its country with security
With factories providing arms for their country
Now most national companies compete in the arms trade
To serve any customer maximized with the money to be made

So just as farms compete to provide fruit for other countries
So people can live to enjoy the taste of nature
National warehouses compete to provide arms around the world to aid death
And all hell unfolds

Our gracious queen should grasp her crown and take a good fucking swing at Blair and Brown
For leading a country into illegal warfare
And trying to pass it off as we’re doing it ‘cause we care

Now preemptive wars are a redemptive cause
I’ve never heard such nonsense under international laws
We think we have the right to enforce democracy
When we weaken ours everyday what hypocrisy

WE’LL BE TOGETHER AGAINST THIS
WE’LL BE FOREVER AGAINST THIS

WE’LL BE TOGETHER AGAINST THIS
WE’LL BE FOREVER AGAINST THIS

Fuck man

I’ve just woke up to a land where killing is part of everyday
And every mind in this intelligent species is lead blinded into the battlefield
Like it’s natural for us to break instead of build
Unity's intrinsic the only cause worth fighting for
Or religions, colours, and creeds.
Now we are the world and we are the people
We are the world and we are the people
And we will be heard.

WE’LL BE TOGETHER AGAINST THIS
WE’LL BE FOREVER AGAINST THIS

WE’LL BE TOGETHER AGAINST THIS
WE’LL BE FOREVER AGAINST THIS

WE’LL BE TOGETHER AGAINST THIS
WE’LL BE FOREVER AGAINST THIS

WE’LL BE TOGETHER AGAINST THIS
WE’LL BE FOREVER AGAINST THIS

The Jester Lyrics

Hold your horses, steady now
Cause we’re floating precariously and therefore further more fruitlessly on tectonic plates
And everything we stand for and everything we stand on is rather unstable right now
So I think i’ll kill some time and have you done medium-rare
But I’ll think i’ll tease my pallette with some crudetes just to prepare
You see we’ve had a joker in the pack now for quite some time
And I reckon it’s about time we roast this swine.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!

Now this is a crock of shit I refuse to be fed
So knuckle down and use your head
Cut it sunshine, boil it up you ponce
Then on the upper dish with some vol-au-vents.

Now I think we should take a leaf from the promise book
Now I think we should take a leaf from the promise book
LET'S THROW IT UP AND START AGAIN
LET'S THROW IT UP AND START AGAIN

Steadyyy
Holddd
Holdddd

Oh that was great!
Our compliments to the chef
I'm very satisfied
Tell you what, I'll be sure to dine here again.
Fiiine cuisine
Stuffed cheeks were very agreeable
All in all a splendid spread

No Gap in the Fence

I lie here staring up at the stratosphere and hoping we're gonna get out of here.
And it seems that we're born of the doorstep of squaler and of pedestals.
And I lie here surrounded by a range of general anesthetic.
To drouse the fact the funding in security is not matched by spreading equality.

In the sunlight where you caught us
plotting the downfall of hoarders
in the sunlight where you caught us. (x2)

It seems that every gap in the fence.
We'll peek, we'll scratch, we'll stretch, we'll grab anything we can.

But if we group together
and made a bigger hole just for our children's but for bigger plans.
Yeah if we group together
and made a hole.
Cause I don't know about you but I've gotta get out of here.
I've gotta get out of here.
I've gotta get out of here.

I've gotta get out of here!
I've gotta get out of here!
I've gotta get out of here!
WOAHHHH!

Woahh! (x4)

I've gotta get out of here!
I've gotta get out of here!
I've gotta get out of here!

Woahh! (x4)

Well I tried my best. This one was a bit tricky in places and as you can see, I didn't get all of it. Thanks again to Connor for helping when my American ears couldn't tell what was being said.

No Sleep Tonight

And I’m thinking what’s the deal
With the facts that they conceal
And I’m thinking what’s the harm in a bit of rhetoric and charm
And I can’t quite comprehend
A beginning or an end
No I can’t quite stomach this now
You and me we’re gonna take to the skies for a common sake
We'll fly amongst the cirrus clouds
20,000 feet we'll crack the crowds
And from that height we’ll leak the lies
And unveil the damaged skies
‘Cause we can’t quite stomach this

All I’m trying to say is
You’re not, getting any sleep tonight
You’re not, getting any sleep tonight
You’re not, getting any sleep tonight (getting any sleep x4)
You’re not, getting any sleep tonight (getting any sleep x4)

The sun and sea could power us
No longer cower in oil and [gas?]
______________________
Of the dangers of this game
I still can’t quite comprehend
A beginning or an end
No I can’t quite stomach this

All I’m trying to say is
You’re not, getting any sleep tonight
You’re not, getting any sleep tonight
You’re not, getting any sleep tonight (getting any sleep x4)
You’re not, getting any sleep tonight (getting any sleep x4)

__________________________________________
___________90 million miles from any sea/thing or anyone
What are we waiting for
What are we waiting for
What are we waiting for

YEAH

All I’m trying to say is
You’re not, getting any sleep tonight
You’re not, getting any sleep tonight
You’re not, getting any sleep tonight (getting any sleep x4)
You’re not, getting any sleep tonight (getting any sleep x4)


________________________________
___________90 million miles from any sea/thing or anyone
Just like the ocean we wont be pacific anymore
[No longer in coexistence of other species or this is flawed ?]

You’re not, getting any sleep tonight
You’re not, getting any sleep tonight
You’re not, getting any sleep tonight (getting any sleep x4)
You’re not, getting any sleep tonight (getting any sleep x4)
