Track Name: Backlash
Insecurity,
The root of the lunacy
Cardboard cut-outs cutting through the community
Tracksuit terrorists on the terraces
Petty crime menaces
The wannabe Paulferris`
Its serious how the I.Q has dropped
In the last five years by such a fucking lot
Claiming to be gangsters when theyre clearly not
I sincerely hope every one of them`s shot

From the street young team to the club drug scene
And its not just me we`ll be going full teamed
Full steam where victims laugh as the demons scream
And karma will wake up
Its the backlash dream


Take The Streets Back

Opportunity
The root of the lunacy
Governing bodies and the social security
Pen-pushing nazis in their matching versaces
Expensive Christmas parties paid by taxes and charges
Its serious how voter apathy has won
In the last ten years we`ve been over-run
P.R Spun
with a smoking gun
Politics seems pointless and narcotics more fun
And its not just me that is thing like this
No definition of democracy has ever existed

Full steam where victims laugh
As the demons scream
And karma will wake up its the Backlash dream


Take the streets back

We`ll have a backlash if you want tay
Lets up the ante
The good guy gets mad hes a bad vigilante
Rise up or do nante
Whatever you want tay

Backlash at last
Rob the banks and the SAAS
Watch the stockmarkets crash
Burn the stash and the cash
The psycopaths are at large
Deport all racists and laugh
Let the good guy laugh last

Take the Streets back
Track Name: What Could Go Wrong?
Stabbed in the back, Hit with the sack
The social not working , Kicked out your flat
Under arrest, Under attack
Walk under a ladder with a magpie and a cat
Tug of war tussle with the mental muscle
Must muster something above the lack-luster

Such is life, Stick a grin on it

What could possibly go wrong? - Everything
What could possibly go wrong? - Anything
What could possibly go wrong? - Everything
Every day is a Friday the 13th
the rage from within, The lies and the spin
What could possibly go wrong? - Everything

We burnt the bridge- It hit the skids and we`re glad it did

such is life, Stick a grin on it

If it can go wrong, It will go wrong
It wont be long till it all goes wrong x2
Someone give me something familiar
Nothing feels much realer than failure


Such is life, Stick a grin on it

What could possibly go wrong? - Everything
What could possibly go wrong? - Anything
What could possibly go wrong? - Everything
Every day is a Friday the 13th
the rage from within, The lies and the spin
What could possibly go wrong? - Everything

We burnt the bridge- It hit the skids and We`re glad it did
Track Name: Stalker Drama
You can find her
Disguised as a passing dog walker
In a stalker submarine with binoculars
or a helicopter
sifting through wheelybins for credit cards and love letters
vengeance vendetta and a hidden agenda
ulterior motives and a hidden agenda
all communications returned back to sender
you reap what you sew so you drove me to this
im not a psycologist
not your psycatrist
Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pale of water
She`s got a needle and she`s not on the pill because somebody caught her
Its good to stalk
a stalker
God call the doctor
Completely off her rocker
There Lies the Stalker

we `re gonna be married
we` re gonna be happy

creepy sneaky peeker peering through the curtains oh!
wide angled camera
Sidestep all the karma
wide angled camera
focus on the stalker drama

Voodoo dolls and the darkest form of magic
hair in her purse and a lab in her attic
playing games of chess with her vague empty threats
give her an address and she ll open her legs
smoking your ashtray
drinking your dreggs
behind you in the que everytime you got to Gregg`s
the nutters got your number
your phone and your pin
the police are good for nothing they just play the violin

Its good to stalk a stalker
God call the doctor
shock, Horror, Shocker
The Karma of the drama stalker
Track Name: Bank Charge
This goes out to Visa, Lloyds TSB,
Royal Bank of Scotland, HSBC
Barclays, Clydesdale and the Abbey
Fuck youse all coz im no happy
Why does the government let you exist?
And why does the public let you take the piss?
Why do we all not punch the desk with our fist?
It's a tax for the poor that's designed by the rich
Call it an overdraft
Call it a switch
Whatever it is its my money bitch
And im not paying 35 pounds for going over
By 14 pence on the 18th October

To lower the service
Increase the profits
Every penny from the working class pockets
If the direct debits early or your wage is late
You've got a cheeky letter nothing else is on your plate/



You`ve got a bank charge
What you gonna do?
Insufficient funds available to you


Hold up a minute
It gets better
You want to complain then you have to write a letter
And you cant call in cause its in India
And you ll never see the fat cat with the cigar

Many people with charges were made redundant
By the same conmen who switched continent
To lower the service
Increase the profit
Every penny from the working class pocket
If the direct debits early or your wage is late
You've got a cheeky letter nothing else is on your plate

Youve got a bank charge
What you gonna do?
Insufficient funds available to you

You put your pin
Number in
And theres nothing to withdraw (oh no)
The bank charges have taken it all
I needed money, For a bottle of cider, Some rizla and a powercard
So now the debt collectors punched me
cause the bank has credit crunched me
And Im sobre myself in the dark
And I cant afford to go to work
So I guess ill get sacked
And if I don't pay my rent
Ill be sleeping in a park
They charge me money
To say they cant pay my bill
Were getting so fucked we should be on the pill
Track Name: Time Machine Prescription
And he prescribed me
a time machine
was at the doctors as part of my dream
And he prescribed me
a time machine
with a magic watch on his wrist with a laser-beam

oh no he says theres no way back for you
unless you go back in time you cant rewind with your mind

(Verse 1)

if your quick you`ll witness my descent and then
you can comment on it over and over again
sign divorce papers with your lucky pen
hopefully you`ll never have to work again
im not the only one whose not decisive
even as i write this Im in crisis
a gaping hole between free and priceless
I dont really like this life its too lifeless

(Chorus)

And he prescribed me
a time machine
was at the doctors as part of my dream
And he prescribed me
a time machine
with a magic watch on his wrist with a laser-beam

oh no he says theres no way back for you
unless you go back in time you cant rewind with your mind

(2nd verse)

Barking Japanese to the moon and the stars
thinking bout space-travel and those new flying cars
seems so real in a trip,
you see the sea from the cliff
talking about the future
your dormant frozen stiff
dont look down on me
I wont look down on you
there is no height or economics to do
in my mind, cant rewind, travel back in time

The hours fly by, The days drag in
The doctors diagnosis couldnt fix him
up in smoke, the door back to before
Remote control brain what do clocks tick for?
Track Name: Jeremy Kyle
Dear Deirdrie my wife is a slut
she stole all my money and now im depressed
Jeremy Kyle made her confess
after she failed the pregnancy test

Dear Trisha my life is a mess
Dear Deirdrie printed my full name and address
What did my friends do?
They just took the piss
They don`t realize how serious all this is

Tell me what to think,
Tell me what to do
`cause im a nobody compared to someone like you
Tell me what to do what to do with my life
Because Jeremy Kyle has been fucking my wife

Dear Montel, My lifes a living hell
after your show i`ve been taking it well
It was all going swell if I truly confess
Going well until my wife flashed her breast
now the whole world can see her right boob
I know you censored it but not on youtube

Tell me what to think,
Tell me what to do
`cause im a nobody compared to someone like you
Tell me what to do what to do with my life
Because Jeremy Kyle has been fucking my wife

Tell me what to do what to do with my life
Because Jeremy Kyle has been fucking my wife

Tell me what to do what to do with my life
Because Jeremy Kyle has been fucking my wife

Jeremy Kyle has been fucking my wife
