about

3 Foot Ninja

We sound like sharp rocks on a big hillside in the blue spring.
We sound like a river speeding through a slow carved valley in summertime.
We play like the heather on fire in the furious gales of autumn.
We play like our songs will turn away the white winter.
No one comes from where we come from.

Track Name: Fire And The Fury
FIRE AND THE FURY

I can feel it coming faster
I can feel it coming faster
I know I know I know it’s you baby
I know I know I know it’s you baby

We drove round roundabouts the wrong way round
Just to waste our time
We should be wasting you

We burned our furniture down to the ground
Just to waste our time
We got no plans or clues

She loves you better
She loves you better
She loves you better than all

We took our irises inside the doors
See what we can find
Something’s happening here

We threw our TV sets down 15 floors
We’re not watching this
We got our hands and minds

She lives in a shiny new house, a country mansion
Got a car and a big four poster, she’s set for marriage
I said I’d like to go there, but I’m too destructive
I’ll burn down your big four poster, make your car a scrapheap
She said she’d like to go there, I feel destructive again
Track Name: Fear
FEAR

Wrecking boards in council houses, losing all their paint
It’s a very fine way from the USA to the places that you’ve been
And you can steal a crowd
If you can steal a rope

Don’t show them your fear darling, I never want to leave here
To leave here

Fireman’s been taking chances breathing city smoke
It burns your lungs till you fall down - you’ll cough until you choke
And you can steal a crowd
If you can steal a rope

It’s a very sad state when your events only bring you crime and punishment
It’s 28 years since 84 but your back’s still smashed and your arm’s still sore
You can steal a crowd
If you can steal a rope
Track Name: We Are An Army
WE ARE AN ARMY

I live in a city of the light
Live in a city of the night
My world is glowing shining bright
My world is glowing full of life
Time on my side or so I’d like to think
Time enough for one more drink and one more kiss and one more night spent just like this

They don’t care if we live or die

With the strength of an army I stand tall on my own
This strength is multiplied by many friends now we’re unstoppable
With our hearts on our sleeves we feel so invincible
These sleeping towns awake when we arrive so irresponsible

No matter what becomes of us we will stand together
All different minds but all the same all different shoes walk the same way
We’re all the same, we are the ones to take it all the way
Through fights through loves through laughs
We are the friends who last

They don’t care if we live or die
Tonight could be our last night
Last chance to make a difference
Track Name: This is. Sun Road
THIS IS.SUN ROAD

This is a test - gotta find some movement
You got to rip off the packaging to taste improvement
This is a stage which could be crucial
Doing your best is that impossible
This is a test - touch some movement

Hands won’t let you go
Bones won’t let you go
If you’re feeling like you’re on the road
It’s only to stop feeling bored

This is the only time to make it
It’s happening now reach out and take it
This is the point where walls start breaking
Know sun road’s gonna be there waiting
This is the only time to make it

I wish that everyone was just like me
Then you could understand the things that I believe
Track Name: Generator
GENERATOR

I’m back now for the sequel
Playing tough has never seemed so equal
And you’ve never seemed out of place
Wearing someone else’s face
She said don’t look down just jump

Glory be my generator
I love it when you scream my name
Glory be my ultimate director
The light is there but you’re far too gone

The warning bells are sounding
A swarm of itching rats are all around me
You’ve never seemed out of place
Wearing someone else’s face
She said don’t look down, just jump
Track Name: Freedom Rising From The Floor
FREEDOM RISING FROM THE FLOOR

You’re a golden shore my darling
I keep watching out for you
A shore with waves so clear
I want to keep you near
Come on let’s fly little eagle
No-one’s gonna tear you down
Not when I’m around
We’ll fly above the ground
Kings all need their crown

There’s my dagger love
That’s who I’m thinking of, again

You’re a frozen star my darling
Send a shiver down my spine
And dart across the sky
Black fury racing by
Come on let’s grow now baby
Freedom rising from the floor
And banging on your door
It’s ripping with its claw
Shaking to the core

You’re a burning sun my darling
I can’t run away from you
A sun with ruthless gaze
It’s shining from your face
Come on let’s shine little riser
Let me take off your disguise
You’re my only prize
We’re burning through the skies
So thrill me with your eyes
Track Name: England Rains Over You
ENGLAND RAINS OVER YOU

I could live a thousand years
See the same states a thousand times
But it’s pitiful that a man could take a day to realise
But it’s your choice, I know I wouldn’t dare to do the same

Want to tell you everything
I wanna make sure England does not happen to you
There’s nothing more I can do no blood on my hands
But it’s your choice, You’ve got to rip it up kick it up make a new command

I’ll write you a different story, a story which twists and turns
There’s no passion in conforming, I’ll write you a different one

I could write a thousand lines
To make you see a thousand signs
It’s the best for me
I need a legacy
I’m never gonna die
See the sunlight - let it rise over domination
Track Name: Wall
WALL

I should have started out with confidence
It is the only thing that matters
Intelligence and open eyes
They’re seldom ever recognized
It doesn’t matter if you can’t understand
The only way of learning
I use intelligence and confidence
To keep myself from dreaming

Bang your head against a wall
Won’t be the first one, you won’t be the first

It’s not a case of feeling different
It’s just a case of feeling malice
Throwing stones into a house of glass
Looking for another challenge
It doesn’t matter if it’s not gonna end
There’s money for the taking
I use intelligence and confidence
To keep myself from breaking

It doesn’t matter if you can’t understand - I’m a man, yes I am
If the water won’t break through the dam - I’m a man, yes I am
Track Name: Killing Love
KILLING LOVE

I hope you know next time you cry
I’m gonna stab you in the eye
18 times
And you’ll find it hard to cry with your eyes all red and won’t stay open

I can see by your eyes that it’s true
I’m killing love, not worth enough to you

I hope you know next time you boast
This violent youth’s gonna cut your throat
Note by note
And you’ll find it hard to boast when your mouth smiles wider than it ought to

I hope you know next time you lie
I’m gonna stab and kiss goodbye
One last time
And you’ll find it hard to lie when your blood runs faster than it ought to

I know just how I’ll make you cry
I’m gonna stab you in the eye
Track Name: Carboard Cutouts
CARDBOARD CUTOUTS

And it’s a lot to express
But its better this way
And it’ll never ever ever be the same again no
Things will never be this frustrating

You’ve got a lot of nerve
And a heart so cold
No matter what goes on around you
Your far too young too die tonight

Carboard Cutouts
It’s the feeling you get when your
Movements
Are found out

And in your mind you’re a superhero
In hers your nothing at all
It’s a feeling so bad it surrounds you
Like all your hopes just died tonight

Carboard Cutouts
It’s the feeling you get when your
Movements
Are found out
You’ll be reeling from what she saw

Some things are better left unsaid
Some things are better left unseen
These things are better left unsaid
These things are better left unseen
Track Name: Ignition pt.1
IGNITION PT.1

Fistfights in breweries do nothing to ease me
I been working for hours but it just don’t appease me
Being part of the home scene - well it’ll never improve me
Shake it up

The pills and the powders don’t do nothing for me
To be king of the towers isn’t more than I should be
The man in the chair is scared what I could be
Shake it up

Word on the street does nothing to still me
The starlets and leading lights do nothing to thrill me
Reading the paper will never forewarn me
Shake it up

Swarms of you insects will never defeat me
The bloated and rejects I fight like an army
No place I call home I’m wandering freely
Shake it up

Where’s your kicks boy
