Track Name: This song is not about Lloyd Dobler
It's taken quite a while
But I'm glad we made it here
I never want to go back to the way things were
Caus we're just having the time of our lives

Just wanna pass the mic out to my friends and hear them shout back

A little older now and not so jaded
Don't wanna be another cynic playing out the rest of time in front of the TV
Caus that's not how I want to be
Track Name: Greater-than signs don't work in song titles so this had to do
You've got your Black Flag shirt and torn up jeans
New Vans trainers this means nothing to me
Never cared much for fashion and uniforms suck
You only know Rollins for Rise Above

Punks not fashion
Increase the passion
Throw yourself of the bandwagon

Lifestyle designer labels - NOT ME
When did punk and hardcore become the rap scene?
"DIY or die" - That's what I live by
Unity and respect 'til the day that I die
Track Name: YOLO
Don't let apathy get the better of you
Keep being positive and see it through
Never settle for second best
One life, one chance - give everything you fucking have

Don't let negativity grab a hold of you
It's your strength of mind that will SEE YOU THROUGH
Keep your friends close and keep active
There's no point spending life so negative

STAY POSITIVE! Don't be defeatist!
One life, one chance - GIVE EVERYTHING YOU FUCKING HAVE!
Track Name: This song is not about Jerry Wong
I see you stare outside that window with the glummest expression I've ever seen
Why don't you get yourself out of this situation?
It's not as difficult as it seems

Keep on going on
Keep on living strong

You don't have the weight of the world on your shoulders
You've got friends to support you if you need
Why don't you get yourself out of this situation?
It's not as difficult as it seems
Track Name: SBGBB
Slept badly on my shoulder
With a notebook on my chest
The writings been quite difficult but I'm trying my best
I'm sorry to change subjects but I must digress
The only thing thing I can think about is WHEN I'LL SEE YOU NEXT
And now I've lost the words I had in my head...

I guess things don't come so naturally but I'm trying my best
Been sitting here since 6 o'clock and the pen ain't touched the paper yet
I'm sorry to change subjects but I must digress
The only thing thing I can think about is WHEN I'LL SEE YOU NEXT
And now I've lost the words I had in my head...
Track Name: XXV
I've played in bands since the age of fifteen
And the lack of one in my twenties took it's toll on me
The four of us got together and wrote some punk-rock songs
You're listening to the sixth we wrote
The one that ends with all the woahs

SO WE'LL WRITE A FEW MORE SONGS

I've played in bands since the age of fifteen
And the presence of one in my twenties made me really happy
The four of us got together and wrote some punk-rock songs
And if you don't like it I defy you
I am still gonna carry on
Track Name: stagediveisstagedivebackwards
We stood around at the back of the show
Waited for the the headline band
Limbered up, checked in our coats and made our way to the barrier

I LOVE MY MATES!
And we'll stage dive through the entire set
KNOCKING OVER YOUR PINT
And kick your girlfriend in the head
I won't even apologise because I like this band more than you
I've even got that seven inch from 1992
