Track Name: Grey Hairs
We said we’d never change a thing
Wouldn’t give up on what we believed, achieved

Young and reckless was the game
We wanted things to remain the same

We had our time out in sun
We got drunk and had our fun
By the time the night drew in ten years were gone away, away!

It’s a new scene that we play
Doing our best to keep it sane, arcane

Liven life not keeping score
Getting old but not growing up

I’m not giving up as we
Drive down roads differently
Cause by the time the lights went green twenty odd years were gone away. Away, I don’t care!
Track Name: Puzzles
I couldn’t stay but I wanted to
I couldn’t face another day like that with you

When you said you wanted me there
Did you lie cause I really thought that you cared

I didn’t wanna be
the person that
you wanted me to be
and then when you
said that day that I waste my time
I knew that I’d wasted a part of my life


Things come to an end
Don’t drag or try and mend
The pieces...of this puzzled mind
It’s not that I don’t wanna hear
It’s just that I can’t hold you near, anymore
I gotta break out from the bind, that I left behind


I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t you
A choice was forced on that day I said I do

When you decided that you'd changed your mind
Did you care for who you left behind?

I didn’t know
I turned into
a person that could repulse you!
I soon saw the error of my ways
And I knew I had wasted more of my days!
Track Name: No LIFO
Pack the bag again, another wave goodbye
Another time zone, another sleepless night
She said "I don't want you leaving again"
But they've dug the hole in life: debts to be paid

Scars on the land and on the mind
Short term gains, what did you sacrifice?
Fuelling a fire that'll burn out long before it should

Eight hours from the place that he calls home
Doesn't see the kids; the first times or the love
She calls and says "I miss you being around"
He says "it'll be worth it in the end"

Draining the life, the earth and the man
It’s no way to live, there’s no one that can
Just fuelling a fire that'll burn out long before it should
Track Name: Too Late
It's not sunny here any more.
I want to go where I call home.
They're not the same 4 walls.
I'm leaving, hold the door.

Exit signs are everywhere
I've never held it in before
Hands behind my back
I start again, this time at the end of the line

They say time heals every wound
But my clock’s still running slow
I should have seen this coming
Another hazy morning I won’t forget

Exit signs are everywhere
I've never held it in before
Hands behind my back
I start again, this time at the end of the line
Track Name: F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
It’s not serendipity, it’s just the way it is
When you work hard to get out the race
Just like me and my friends did

People ask why, they just don’t understand
And they act like I should be ashamed of who I am
While they’re knee deep in ‘life’ and debts they can’t repay
I just tell them Barry’s been drunk for the last few days

This is all I ever wanted
This is all I ever had
This is where the party started
This is where our lives were had

This will be a place
That lives in our hearts
And our minds for years
This will be what we pass to our kids

And I don’t mean to sound like smart arse
Cause I don’t know much at all
And I’m not saying we’re the best, but I think we’re pretty close!

And me my friends are not a family
But we're connected to each other by community
Others don’t understand why we’d spend our lives in practice rooms flying interstate for a just for a beer and fifty bucks
Track Name: They're at it again
Oh it's been so long
We've been waiting for the day that we'd see them again
We'd fallen down on
Our first-world problems, home loans and fancy cars

It's like they'd given up
It's like I'd given up
It's like we all could send a tweet, but couldn't give a fuck
And now our just desserts
Are being fed to us
It doesn’t taste good so demand to see the manager!

When the walls come crashing down
Will our old morals be found?
End your endless summer
Start your winter of discontent

We thought we were so strong
Retreated to our lounges and kicked back
Now we're dealing with morons!
Corruption, sedition, subversion of just rules

We didn’t seize the chance
I didn't seize the chance
We could have influenced and forced some real change of hearts
And now we reap what we sow
It's time to turn the farrow
Follow the protest, raise your voice and hold them all accountable

When the walls come crashing down
Will our old morals be found?
End your endless summer
Start your winter of discontent

We haven’t blown it all
We’ve gotta stand up tall

It’s time for fighting 'til the scumbags all start to fall
Track Name: She used to wear a Baby G
And you say your leaving
And you state your reason

But I’m not listening

There’s no going forward
When you’re walking backwards

No one’s listening

I heard it from another friend
You’re not really happy

They said it’s mainly discontent
Like you feel like you don’t belong here

I can’t fix that
I dunno how to fix that

Are you going?

It’s just that I’ve changed
My disconnection’s reconnected
Track Name: Jaded Memories
Just one of those days
Where you're wondering
Would you rewind the tape
And see it (all) again?

Did I miss the plot?
Somebody's dropping out
Could I have paused and rewound and worked out long ago...?

That when the story came to an end I could honestly say
I did my best to stop what we're doing here today
A wrong ending,
Or plot twist that no one could really explain
A character that no one wanted to play

We've all got something to say
About the games they played
About the times and memories saved

Watch the life play out again
We should have done it with them
The post's are on the wall, lonely and desperate to fall. I guess your 'like's' the last call

When the story comes to an end can I honestly say
I did my best to stop what we're doing here today?
A wrong ending,
Or plot twist that no one could really explain
A character that no one wanted to play
Track Name: Next in line
I've been floating in this ship
Drifted to another continent

Troubled waters rise and fall
Smooth sailing comes but without chore

I’ve met people through the days
Some were close and now are distant
I wouldn’t have it any other way
Right now I can be myself

Woah!

Some say plot every trip
But I'm trying to balance getting lost and living-it

And I don't have all the travel yarns
That I'd like be able to tell just yet (just yet)

I won’t take all the advice
I’ll do it all on my own terms
She wouldn’t have it any other way
Right now I can be myself

Woah!
Track Name: Worse Half
Never could find a way I could say
I never wanted to be here today
A bottle of wine could make me deny
All the things that I wanted to say

It's nothing that you've done
Maybe that's the point
I need another waaaay

I don't wanna pull that block from your game
That'll make your world come tumbling down
I wish you'd just take the hints that I left
Don't lead me to fool around

I know I've got control
But with you it feels like I'm just
Loosing my mind

It's like loosing everything
But gaining everything
This one wasn't right
It's time to say goodbye

I don't want to lead you on any way
And I know that we'll not make amends
I know it's cliche but I'm gonna say
I’d really like to be friends

I hate to see you hurting
But this once good thing has
Come to an end
Track Name: Twisted Sister
Down by the river again
Throw another line in
The last one didn't catch a thing
Wrong bait and timing

As the water ebbs and flows
And as the distance and time shows
Reflections are all we see
Someone different staring back at me

We’re not gonna take it
NO! We’re not gonna take it (thanks Dee Snider)
Narcissistic crap, it’s all self-educated
Stop wasting our precious time
All our flaming time!

Like a poorly written (soap) opera
Even the best is dull
Can’t write a new character in
That’d change everything

"Nothing comes from nothing"
So a wise man said
Tell them what they want to hear
Never let on what you really fear

We’re not gonna take it
NO! We’re not gonna take it
Narcissistic crap, it’s all self-educated
Stop wasting our precious time
All our precious time!

"I’m gonna share
My perfect life
The one you wish that you could have” Ha ha

Stop and think!
Don’t fall for it
The lies will drive you in the ground

Don't wish your lives away!
Don't wish your lives away!
