Track Name: We Are the Blood
You don't like seeing us on the town
You don't like seeing us hanging around
You don't understand anything we do
You don't understand why we 're not like you

why you trying to put us down
why you throwing your weight around

We are the blood, We are the skins
We are the kids snd we'll never give in
We are the blood, We are the voice
We are the streets and we're the boot boys

out of fear you cast us out
you dont even know what we're all about
but now its time to face the truth
when your face to face with the angry youths

why you trying to put us down
why you throwing your weight around

We are the blood, We are the skins
We are the kids snd we'll never give in
we are the blood, We are the voice
we are the streets and we're the boot boys

and now the smoke has cleared
and I see the fear in your eyes
we are sick and tired
of all of your bullshit lies
so they say our scene is dead
well look at us now we're far from it

why you trying to put us down
why you throwing your weight around

we are the blood, We are the skins
we are the kids and we'll never give in
we are the blood, We are the voice
we are the streets and we're the boot boys
Track Name: Shadows on the Street
Another shadow on the street
I'm lying at deaths door
where I walk I'm leaving footprints
where thousands have walked before
I am just a number in this society
I've finally accepted my own mortality

but nothing lasts forever
everything must end
we gotta stick together
cause we've always got our friends

I stare into the mirror and I see a dying face
I realize that in my life I've got no fucking place
Im just another kid, another shadow on the street
I'm trying to live my life, but my life has got me beat

but nothing lasts forever
everything must end
we gotta stick together
cause we've always got our friends
Track Name: Burned Up, Washed Out
Many bloody wars and settled scores
and broken hearts ago
hung over, lost can't give a toss we
suffered through the blows
time's come and gone and we're the
ones to turn and run they'll say
how many times has the door been
slammed on a lonely cast away?
what' is left of all the kids
who seemed to have something to say
they're picking up the pieces of their
broken yesterdays
they've said goodbye, found better
lives but I feel left behind
I'm on the outside looking in and
there's nothing left inside

And all the lonely castaways get lonelier it seems
burned up washed out without a doubt
and tied to broken dreams

Many bloody wars and settled scores
and broken hearts ago
hung over, lost can't give a toss we
suffered through the blows
time's come and gone and were the
ones to turn and run they'll say
how many times has the door been
slammed on a lonely cast away?
Track Name: This One's for You
This one's for the punks, this one's for the skins
this one's for the drunks that got their heads kicked in
this one's for kids living out on the street
and this one's for us cause we can't be beat and

This one's for you!
never hang up your boots!
this one's for you!
never hang up your boot!

This one's for the kids out back downing pints
this one's for the kids who're out starting fights
this one's for the kids who were destined to fall

this one's for the kids who show no shame
this one's for the kids who won't play their game
this one's for the kids who're rising high
this one's for the kids who keep the spirit alive

this one is for us cause we can't be beat
this one is for us all cause we can't be beat
Track Name: You Make Me Sick
Hey Baby you've got a lot to learn
I've been down and now it's your turn
Never guess I'd see through you
Took a chance at the things you do

You make me sick

Hey baby you got a lot to say
Don't look true to me that way
You always thought you were something new
Never wanted my point of view

You make me sick

You think your smile is oh so cool
Go find yourself another fool
I cramped your style so you say
Looking at yourself 24 hours a day

You make me sick

Hey baby don't turn me on
I ain't gonna miss you now that you're gone
I love the things you do
I can not get through to you

You make me sick
Track Name: Teenage Terror
Dirt on your face and boots on your feet
sneak out at night to drink on the street
they say that you're so young
but your mind is made up

and your passing all the others
the ones that gave up

Only 16 but your nobody's fool
you get beat up by the jocks on your way
home from school
but you've got something that they
can't understand
you got the fucking world in the palm
of your hand

Too big for boots is what they say
but you'll knock down anyone in the way
they don't understand this is the life you choose
and right now you feel like you can never lose

It's more than a tourist photo in Harvard square
it's more than a leather and purple hair
this is more than jumping the fashion cart
because your outside shows the pride in your heart

You may look different but it's by choice
no lies or accusations will silence your voice
brought into this world and forged in adolescent pain
something that others just can't explain
Track Name: Come to Grips
There was a time when I thought you could be trusted
brothers we said, and I thought it was true
but now things are different and I realize
how stupid I was to have trusted you
the things people say and the clothes that they wear
are not always a reflection of whats inside
it took me some time but now I see
the world of insecurity in which you hide

now I see the fear behind your eyes
now I see the truth behind your lies
behind your lies
(2)

There was a time when I thought you could be trusted
brothers we said, and I thought it was true
but now things are different and I realize
how stupid I was to have trusted you
so I see you now and it's like we've never met
a handshake and a smile and small talk shit
can't say I care cause it never meant a thing
it just took me some time to come to grips

now I see the fear behind your eyes
now I see the truth behind your lie
behind your lies

now I see the fear behind your eyes
now I see the truth behind your lie
behind your lies

behind your fucking lies!
Track Name: Grasping at Straws
Why drink a beer if the bottle's got a bottom?
Pretty soon everyone will leave
a nice exterior, the insides rotten
I can't trust what I once believed
now I'm fucked, twitching crucified
nothings changed, we all feel the same
this empty feelings to which I'm tied
I saw my own funeral and nobody came

Nobody laughs anymore, Nothings changed,
we've seen it before
nobody smiles anymore, we try and try but
we're still bored

You told me we could make it through this
trick yourselves into plans of hope
the sea of time in which we wade
jealous of purity I see in their eyes
the same clear vision torn from my heart
like a dying man wiping off the flies
I feel it, I need it but there's no hope
Track Name: No Regrets
I am the taker, the giver of none
you see me coming and you better run
cause I don't give a fuck about your pain
madness is the only thing that keeps me sane

you are my roadblock, the one in my way
think you're gonna stop me but you're gonna pay
coming at you like an eighteen wheel truck
the I'll spit on you cause I don't give a fuck

you think I'm hateful- well that's tough shit
think I'm crazy well you better deal with it
I have no conscience, I have no heart
coming for you gonna rip you apart

madness is what keeps me sane
Track Name: Dead and Gone
All things lost, nothing gained
everything passing day intensifies my pain
I look towards tomorrow
yet cling to yesterday
hoping sometime I'll find my way

Each day a reminder of my mistakes
each day a reminder of what it takes
nothing to look forward to from what I can see
the old days ended too soon for me
Track Name: End of My Rope
You know you're at the end when your
mind's a prison cell
the walls are closing in and your
life's a living hell
nowhere left to turn to and no one
else to blame
so you blame yourself you might as
well cause the jokes on you again

Alright alright it's not alright
I'm gonna feel the pain tonight

Give me a push give me a shove I'll never fuckin' learn
made all the wrong decisions now there's nowhere else to turn
so don't call me your brother and don't call me your friend
cause I've been down that road before
and I know where it ends

Alright alright it's not alright
I'm gonna feel the pain tonight
out of mind and out of sight
I'm at the end of my rope tonight
Track Name: Saturday Kids
Another weekend on the town
another Saturday night
another riot, another fight
beer by the riverside
we always get chased by the cops
they really got it in for us
they wanna see us all behind bars
cause we're always making a fuss

Saturdays kids, nothing else to do
Saturdays kids, teenage wasted youth

Another gang out on the streets
you can't say we haven't tried
all the cops and all the suits
wanna push us down to the side
our generation is gonna fucking stay
our generation is gonna have it's say
Track Name: Reckless
You talk to us about the way it was but you don't see
we don't care about the way it used to be
can't live on those nostalgic lies
we're sick and tired of living up to the old ways
the scene is ours now, the kids are here to stay
and we will never go away

The first to arrive and the last to leave
another generation wears it's anger on it's sleeve
and if your not careful it'll come right down to you

Cause the tables have turned and the hatred burns
and after all these years we've finally learned we gotta take a stand
so what are you gonna do?
Another casualty, don't look at me
just a reckless useless young wannabe
singled out and written off like it was never meant to be
you're a nameless faceless bygone to be
Track Name: Youth Is Wasted by the Young
You were only 13 when you had your first fuck
cause at the age of 12 you were a certified drunk
sneaking home through the window so late at night
don't want your parents to see that you had another fight
your new friends are all older and you feel so cool
smoking butts in the back lot and skipping school
but you can't see they started out just like you
grew up too fast, now in the welfare queue

And you're wishing, and wanting to be so much older
and your life and your dreams are getting so much colder
and you don't know what you have, and now the song is sung
you've forgotten what it's like to be young

The days roll by and the nights are a blur
getting fucked up all the time but always quite sure
that things will work out and it'll be just fine
but you can't see you're just a fucking lie
your childhood friends can't look you in the face
cause you ditched them long ago and they feel betrayed
besides most of them have moved, got lives of their own
and you're still unemployed and living at home

And you're wishing and wanting to take it all back
cause your life and your dreams are rotted and cracked
you're sick and you're tired of the things you've done and seen
cause you're an old man at the age of eighteen
Track Name: Insight
Guess your dreams always end.
They don't rise up just descend,
But I don't care anymore,
I've lost the will to want more,
I'm not afraid not at all,
I watch them all as they fall,
But I remember when we were young.

Those with habits of waste,
Their sense of style and good taste,
Of making sure you were right,
Hey don't you know you were right?
I'm not afraid anymore,
I keep my eyes on the door,
But I remember...

Tears of sadness for you,
More upheaval for you,
Reflects a moment in time,
A special moment in time,
Yeah we wasted our time,
We didn't really have time,
But we remember when we were young.

And all God's angels beware,
And all you judges beware,
Sons of chance, take good care,
For all the people not there,
I'm not afraid anymore,
I'm not afraid anymore,
I'm not afraid anymore,
Oh, I'm not afraid anymore.
