Track Name: Gargoyles
Dead city, swashbucklers
Sneaking, creeping, crawling, climbing
Their mission is a quiet one
Pitter patter, pitter patter
Who dares to go there?
Who dares when you could just stay at home
A mission with no reason
But lots of thrills and lots of falls

Gargoyles, rooftops, lift shafts and long waits
Cop cars security, and incarceration
City walls, city docks, city church, we done the lot
Slying across your skyline to get to that high spot

Inner city shadow stalking
Trail-blazing trespass subverts
Citizen, invisible
You'll only see what is left behind
Up there with our companions
The aerials that feed your brains
We'll make it to our summit
And you will still be sat at home

Gargoyles, rooftops, lift shafts and long waits
Cop cars security, and incarceration
City walls, city docks, city church, we done the lot
Slying across your skyline to get to that high spot

Sneaking, creeping, crawling, climbing
It could be seen as crime but it's worth it for the time
That we spend on building sites, creep like ninjas in the night
Scaling cranes, jumping trains, better than a city fight
City docks, city walls, city church, we done them all
Far too dangerous for you, step out of place and you might fall
We do it for the buzz, for the adrenaline rush
Excitement flows through my veins as I lose sight of fear and pain
I suffer for my art but its worth it in my heart
As it pounds a racing rhythm when I'm high above the system
Looking down on city lights, I get pleasure from great heights
Invisible, anonymous like shadows fading outta sight

Gargoyles, rooftops, lift shafts and long waits
Cop cars security, and incarceration
City walls, city docks, city church, we done the lot
Slying across your skyline to get to that high spot

Gargoyles, rooftops, lift shafts and long waits
Cop cars security, and incarceration
City walls, city docks, city church, we done the lot
Slying across your skyline to get to that high spot
Track Name: Arab Spring
Free Libya
Free Syria
Free Egypt
Free Tunisia

Up the Arabs spring
Up the Arabs spring
Up the Arabs spring
No dictators, no kings!

Free Algeria
Free Yemen
Free Gaza
Free Lebanon

Up the Arabs spring
Up the Arabs spring
Up the Arabs spring
No dictators, no kings!

Western Sahara, across Iran
Up to Syria and down Sudan
People against the system fucked
They're fighting back, they're standing up

Up the Arabs spring, up the Arabs spring

No dictators, no kings! (no dictators, no kings!)
No dictators, no kings! (no dictators, no kings!)
No dictators, no kings! (no dictators, no kings!)
Up the Arabs spring
Track Name: EDL Fuck Off
EDL! (FUCK OFF!) EDL! (FUCK OFF!) EDL! (FUCK OFF!)
EDL! (FUCK OFF!) EDL! (FUCK OFF!) EDL! (FUCK OFF!)

Here come the big boys with their flags
The brain dead mother fuckers, they think they've found a cause
Strutting through our streets with their banners of hate
The EDL's goin' under our boots before its too late

We're taking out the hate machine bit by bit
The EDL, the BNP, and all the right wing shit
When stupid fucks on coaches come to invade our towns
And try their hands at politics we must not sit around

EDL! (FUCK OFF!) EDL! (FUCK OFF!) EDL! (FUCK OFF!)
EDL! (FUCK OFF!) EDL! (FUCK OFF!) EDL! (FUCK OFF!)

When will of you muppets wake up and see
There's nothing wrong with a multi-cultural society
When you come to us with your mouths full of shit
It's fists of education that your gonna get

We're taking out the hate machine bit by bit
The EDL, the BNP, and all the right wing shit
When stupid thugs on coaches come to invade our towns
And try their hands at politics we must not sit around

FUCK OFF! FUCK OFF! FUCK OFF!
FUCK OFF! FUCK OFF! FUCK OFF!

So why not take a step back and read a couple of books
Soak up some information and have another look
The problems of our country, dear, are plain to see
It's all about the distribution of all the money

We're taking out the hate machine bit by bit
The EDL, the BNP, and all the right wing shit
When stupid fucks on coaches come to invade our towns
And try their hands at politics we must not sit around

EDL! (FUCK OFF!)
THE BNP! (FUCK OFF!)
UKIP! (FUCK OFF!)
THE NATIONAL FRONT! (FUCK OFF!)
CASUALS UNITED! (FUCK OFF!)
THE EDL! (FUCK OFF!)
Track Name: Breaking Point
I got a bollocking from the boss, cause the day didn’t go his way
I couldn’t be fucked to defend myself and over my head it went
10 hours of this shit and 10 miles 'till I get home
I remind myself that I'm in disguise and I’m waiting for my monthly prize

Spanner pushin', knuckle crushin' [x3]
BREAKING POINT
Spanner pushin', knuckle crushin' [x3]
BREAKING POINT

Off he goes again, he just don’t fucking learn
Every man has a breaking point and this ain't much to lose
10 hours of this shit and 10 miles 'till I get home
I remind myself that I'm in disguise and I’m waiting for my monthly prize

Spanner pushin', knuckle crushin' [x3]
BREAKING POINT
Spanner pushin', knuckle crushin' [x3]
BREAKING POINT

He loves the work he does, cause he hates the life he’s led
It's led him to love the tie and the suit, and if he has to pull the trigger he’ll fucking shoot
10 years of this shit and 10 miles 'till I get home
I remind myself that I'm in disguise and I’m waiting for my monthly prize

Spanner pushin', knuckle crushin' [x3]
BREAKING POINT
Spanner pushin', knuckle crushin' [x3]
BREAKING POINT

BREAKING POINT
Track Name: Pay Yr Rent
Moping in my flat, miserable as fuck
My mates will be out skanking soon and here I will be stuck
No money for a ticket, on debt it’s all been spent
The heartless, greedy landlord wants all I have for rent

I’m sick and tired of all my money being squandered by the rat race
The property ladder is fucked; I can’t afford my own place
I know how to solve this problem, gotta do it fast
We’ll pack our bags and run from here, we’ll have the last laugh

Rent; pay your rent, until every penny’s spent
This age-old feudal system’s difficult to comprehend;
It sees the privileged, aristocrats, the lords and business classes,
Making profit off our backs, while we're forced out on our arses
Rent, rent, rent, rent
Rent, rent, rent, rent
Pay your fucking rent

Dripping from the ceiling, mould growing on the wall
The wealthy getting richer while we’re paying for it all
No free land for us to live on, not even in a tent
They smile and take our earnings when it’s time to pay the rent

I’m sick and tired of all my money being squandered by the rat race
The property ladder is fucked; I can’t afford my own place
Light-footed we exit to the comfort of the street
In the middle of the night while the neighbours are asleep

[Chorus]

The top one percentile don’t ever have to work for their money
Dividends, interest, capital gains and rent from you and me
The rich and poor divide is wider now than in the ‘70s
One percent! One Percent are getting all the rent

I’m sick and tired of all my money being squandered by the rat race
The property ladder is fucked; I can’t afford my own place
One percent, one Percent are getting all the rent
One percent, one Percent are getting all the rent, all the...

[Chorus]

One percent, one percent are getting all the
Rent, rent, rent, rent
Rent, rent, rent, rent
Pay your fucking rent!
