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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.
