Track Name: Generation Winter
Sorry Escalator - Generation Winter

Look out your window what do you see?
People frying up in their misery.
Your folk devils, they don't wash with me.
Your politicised red herring.
You spit out your bile,
We run a mile, your wry smile, so so so so fucking vile.

We are waiting ever so impatiently.
Weathering the storm till we can spread our wings.

You broadcast your insincerity.
Red top hacks, lobbyists and daylight thieves.
With their brown paper envelopes they rush to the bank.
Laughing, laughing cash in hand.
Stay asleep in a fire.

We are waiting ever so impatiently.
Weathering the storm till we can spread our wings.

You fail to notice we are listening.
You fail to notice you are blistering.
It's just a matter of time, just a matter of time, just a matter of time.

We are waiting ever so impatiently.
Weathering the storm till we can spread our wings.

Keep the curtains closed.
Keep your kids at home.
Keep the curtains closed.
Keep the kids at home.
Track Name: Street Corner Absurdity
It's a sign of the times,
A daily prescription with no warning signs.
You don't question why you just sit and condone.

As I walk down your street,
Scripts and vodka bottles lie at my feet. Street corner absurdity, yeah it's got to me.

So tell me how things got this way? Forgotten now just like yesterday. Did you play by the rules? Or were you lead astray.

Just take a look at yourself your throwing stones in your glass house. No thought to the madness while we burn out, yes, yet again.

(Refrain) yeah I know
(Refrain) but you, don't.
