shedoverheels Performing one of these tracks must be an aerobic feat, so a live set must be the equivalent of running a marathon in under 40 minutes. This is the audio parallel of crack-cocaine - hits you fast, constricts your pupils, and addictive to the point of immediate dependence. One hit is all it took. FFO craving and vices. Favorite track: WHAT IS THIS PLACE? (NOT ON YOUR OWN).

Smog, is burning my lungs, the air is black, no turning back Smoke, fills the cities, it clouds the streets, no one can breathe Fire, burns the forest, down go the trees, the earth it bleeds Waste, in the oceans, and in the seas, the fish can’t breathe Poison Destroys us Black air Death’s stare Blood, coughing and retching, gasping for air, too late to care Gone, are the gardens, gone are the bees, how will we feed? No one can breathe – yet we still plough forwards We're stoking our Cheynes – action is rare No one can breathe – fighting against ourselves We're stoking our Cheynes – death in the air Time, was on our side, it was wasted, we just quit Fate, always against us, human nature, there is no cure WARNINGS WERE THERE NOBODY CARED PRIORITIES NOW WE CAN’T BREATHE Destined for failure Earth's final traitor.

Hiding in the undergrowth From the pricks in the red coats Wondering what I have done wrong They killed my family Why can’t they leave us be? I can’t keep running any more The sabs are there for you They’re watching out for you They’re always on your side Your rights won’t be denied HUNT SCUM – FUCK YOU! HUNT SCUM – WANKERS Who are those on horseback? Those hounds are on my track They’ll catch my scent then I’m done Who are those hiding my scent? Following the ones in red They’re giving me a fighting chance The sabs are there for you They’re watching out for you They’re always on your side Your rights won’t be denied

WE MIGHT BE THE ONES THAT CUT DOWN THE TREES BUT IT’S NOT OUR FAULT THE EARTH’S ON ITS KNEES DECENT PAY IS ALL THAT WE WANT WHAT HAPPENS TO THE WORLD IS NOT OUR FAULT A JOB IS A JOB IN THIS CRUEL WORLD THE REPERCUSSIONS NOT OUR CONCERN BLAME THE ONES THAT PAY OUR WAGE BLAME THE ONES WITH THE KEY TO THE CAGE WHO’S TO BLAME? DON’T BLAME ME IT’S JUST EMPLOYMENT WHO’S TO BLAME? IT’S PLAIN TO SEE WE ARE A SERVICE WHO’S TO BLAME? DON’T BLAME US, WE ONLY GOVERN WHO’S TO BLAME? DON’T BLAME ME, IT’S FOR MY FAMILY IT’S NOT OUR FAULT, I PAY THEM WELL IF WE DON’T DO IT, SOMEONE ELSE WILL OUR COMPANY IS NOT TO BLAME WE’RE JUST A VICTIM OF FINANCIAL GAMES DON’T BLAME US, OUR PEOPLE ARE POOR THIS GOVERNMENT’S BETTER THAN THE ONE BEFORE WE ONLY DO IT TO HELP THEIR LIVES IT’S NOT OUR FAULT, THEY ARE NOT OUR CRIMES

FORGOTTEN 03:50
Is this what we wanna see? People dying in poverty No one caring about their lives So much unchecked genocide Streets filled with invisible people, see no evil, hear no evil Developed nations with shacks for houses, no help given, could do without them How many more forgotten people, will die before we take action? I can’t accept that we need food banks, so much waste, food thrown as trash How come we can’t help a refugee? Bailing banks out is what we need Celeb weddings make the newspapers, wars abroad don’t concern the nation More concerned with some fucking bake off, than the fact that people are killed off Please don’t show us the horrors of war Fashion gossip is what I paid for No need to know about Syria, or the spread of diphtheria Let’s all get on with our lives, couldn’t help even if I tried Hunger, in this day is just evil, we must be better people Act before it is too late. Help! Greed is, much worse than free movement Don’t pretend you’re above it, it could happen to you too. Help!

Violent and mean Your thinking is obscene Fantasies of causing pain You say it's legit Society asked for it What the hell goes through your brain? Religious wars Vermin killing course Why would you choose to do that? Not justified No being needs to die Pretending that there is just cause Screaming in pain Your actions to blame Claiming it's traditional Part of the game To pretend you are sane Your choices define who you are Excuse to kill - fox hunter or matador Abuse at will - thinking you're special Excuse to kill - living life by taking life Abuse at will - psychopathic drones Being a doctor or a cleaner Too boring for you No excuse to make them suffer No anguish to view Content with brutal life choices Death is your desire Killing for your pure satisfaction I question how you're wired WRONG IN THE HEAD ENJOYING DEATH PRETENDING YOU’RE GOOD THIRSTING FOR BLOOD

Looking at the newspaper, again you feel despair You question if this mental world can ever be repaired Another unjust law upheld, another species dies Wondering how to function, don’t others empathise? Feeling like an alien, lost in a faceless crowd Every breath is an effort, but others seem so proud Can’t understand the world, does anybody care? So few speak up or act, whilst most others just stare? NOT ON YOUR OWN. NOT ON YOUR OWN. YOU’RE NOT ON YOUR OWN (X2) A friend says to ban dog meat, whilst eating bacon baps Raising for child charities; kids made their clothes and bags! Others mock your life choices, saying that you’re weird You try to fit in anyway, holding back your tears You’ve never eaten at Nando’s, or watched the X-factor Yet somehow you’re a “freak”, they ask why it matters What do you eat? How do you live? Do you have fun? You try to think where to begin, but you just want to run NOT ON YOUR OWN. NOT ON YOUR OWN. YOU’RE NOT ON YOUR OWN (X4) You wake up some mornings – fighting back those images The ones that changed your soul – your insides feel like a black hole Changed forever more – can’t understand how you lived before Or when others will see – the world is not what it’s meant to be What is this place? – Why does that meal still have a face? Words fall on your ears – but the meaning seems to disappear Is it really important? – You cannot see the significance It’s hard to walk the line – but still you say that you‘re “just fine” NOT ON YOUR OWN. NOT ON YOUR OWN. YOU’RE NOT ON YOUR OWN (X6)

WAGE SLAVES 02:49
Mind and soul bound to a desk Or on shop floors, no time for rest All day you must answer the phone Frowned upon when you go home Cleaning streets and sweeping floors To buy some clothes, and food of course You work all day, then sleep at night Or the reverse, there’s no respite WAGE FUCKING SLAVES - ALL OF US ARE WAGE SLAVES (x4) WAGES MAKE US BEHAVE Sometimes you dream about work It’s enough to make you berserk You work some more, for overtime You need the cash, to live your life MPs would have us work to death Retirement age at your last breath Life reduced to bills and fees Economic slavery Do not live your whole life just for money Do things that fell right to you, or make you happy Break away from that mental state See yourself more than just your wage WE’RE FUCKING WAGE SLAVES!
8.
So-called borders I can’t see They say they travel illegally Movement logged and quantified Countless refugees have died What you got? What you need? All they’ve got, you don’t need Are they legal? Do they bleed? They’re humans like us NO – NO BORDERS, NO BOUNDARIES (X4) People treated like they are goods Their dignity is removed No thought for their basic rights It’s our wars that caused their plight They’re crossed off And sent back Another disappearing act Take action while we can Before we lose our humanity NO – NO BORDERS, NO BOUNDARIES (X8)
9.
THEY SAY IT’S TIME TO MAKE SOME SAVINGS TIME FOR AUSTERITY WE NEED TO MAKE SOME CUTBACKS SO WE CAN AFFORD TO FEED CUTS ON PUBLIC SPENDING AND ON BENEFITS CUTS FOR THE DISABLED AND THE ELDERLY BUT IT MEANS NOTHING IT’S JUST PEANUTS THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG CORPORATIONS DUCKING OUT WHILST THE MASSES PAY THEIR DUES MAKING ALL THE WRONG CHANGES CUTS THAT DON’T BELONG AVERAGE PEOPLE SUFFER THE POWERFUL; THEY STAY STRONG THE POWERFUL; THEY STAY STRONG HALF PRICE ON HUMANITY HOW MUCH CAN BE SAVED? HALF PRICE ON HUMANITY WHILE CORPORATE TAX IS WAVED HALF PRICE ON HUMANITY POOR NATION’S CHILDREN STARVE HALF PRICE ON HUMANITY WELL HUMANITY IS HALVED IT’S HALVED IT’S HALVED HUMANITY IS HALVED THE NHS IN DOWNWARD SPIRAL THEY SAY IT CAN’T BE HELPED THEY CAN’T AFFORD REGENERATION OR TO SAVE THE GREEN BELT NO CASH FOR YOUTH CENTRES LESS FOR THE COMMUNITIES LESS FOR THE DISABLED IT’S A FUCKED UP ECONOMY BUT THE ELITE FEW ARE KEPT AFLOAT PROTECTED BY RICH PEERS MINISTERS WITH ADDED PERKS OUR WORDS FALL ON DEAF EARS NO ONE SEEMS TO CARE AT ALL AT LEAST THE ONES THAT COUNT MPS TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES KEEPING OTHERS DOWN KEEPING OTHERS DOWN
10.
Ours in a world racked with pain All this intolerance, and endless strain On its apex species - humanity The only beast to judge on sexuality One that's constant is the human need for love Wankers Laughable to think it's scorned from above Wankers Followers of hate when dead are no loss Wankers If Jesus was a homophobe he earned his cross Wankers STUPID PRICK MINDLESS HOMOPHOBE JUST WAKE UP! WHY SO AFRAID? WHY YOU SO UPSET? YOUR OPINIONS SUCK Every word from your mouth Wankers Reeks of shit, and self-doubt Wankers Faith is love, and hate is fear Wankers Disown their dying house before they bring it near Wankers Followers of hate when dead are no loss If Jesus was a homophobe he earned his cross

PIT BULLSHIT 02:15
IMAGINE BEING KILLED FOR NOTHING MORE THAN BEING BORN INTO THE WORLD, DOOMED FROM DAY ONE BASED ON YOUR BREED, THESE LAWS ARE JUST ABSURD. LENNOX IS NOT THE ONLY ONE, THERE’S MANY MORE WHO’VE DIED, KILLED BECAUSE OF BODY SIZE, NO CHANCE TO LIVE THEIR LIVES. JUDGEMENTS BASED ON HOW THEY LOOK AND ON THEIR MEASUREMENTS, NOT BECAUSE OF WHAT THEY’VE DONE, OR ANY PAST EVENTS. DONE NOTHING WRONG, BUT NO ONE CARES, BEING PIT BULL IS THEIR CRIME, DEEMED DANGEROUS WITHOUT GOOD CAUSE, THERE’S NO ESCAPE THIS TIME. THIS CAN’T BE RIGHT, SURELY NOT; THE POOR DOG’S DONE NO WRONG, NO BITES, NO THREATS, NOBODY HURT, BUT THEY SAY THEY DON’T BELONG. IT’S MURDER BASED ON TYPE OF BREED, A HOLOCAUST FOR DOGS, THEY COULD BE THE NICEST DOG ALIVE, BUT THEY STILL CAN’T BEAT THE ODDS. THEIR FATE IS SEALED BY PREJUDICE, WHICH LEADS TO MINDLESS DEATH, SURELY THIS IS NONSENSE, WHY CAN’T WE USE OUR HEADS? IT MAKES NO SENSE TO PUNISH THOSE FOR SIMPLY BEING ALIVE, CHANGE THIS LAW, IT’S BARBARIC, WE CANNOT SYMPATHISE. MINDLESS LAWS DON’T IGNORE THINK AGAIN STOP THE DEATH BE HUMANE NOT INSANE SCRAP THE LAW WE IMPLORE!

Dispatched to fight a war overseas Programmed orders in their brains Asks no questions, obeys all orders No need to think what is humane Not all wars are fought in defence The Iraq war showed them this But drones on hand when they’re needed Prepared to kill when we wish it They are the drones, on conflict they feed War is a force that gives them meaning An inner need resides within them Anger rising from within Confused with peace, they wonder blindly Searching for their next victims Glamorised by film and TV War can win many awards Celebrations for victories Nothing learned from wars before
13.
THEY INFECT THE WHOLE PLANET LIKE A VIRUS, THEY SPREAD DISEASE NOTHING IS SACRED, POWER IN MIND FIGHTING THEIR WARS, KILLING IS FINE NO HUMANITY, IT’S JUST A MYTH CRUELTY IS WHAT LIES WITHIN KILLING FOR GODS, WAR FOR MONEY CRUELTY CONSIDERED FUNNY BASTARD - BASTARD SPECIES PARASITES WEARING BUSINESS SUITS PUPPET LEADERS HAVE NO USE A WORLD WHERE SLAVERY STILL EXISTS A WORLD WHERE RACISM STILL PERSISTS IT’S CLAIMED THAT ANIMALS HAVE NO SOUL BUT IT’S US THAT DRAG THEM FROM THEIR HOMES ABUSED IN ZOOS, FOR KICKS, FOR LAUGHS SEALS ARE CLUBBED, THEIR HEADS ARE BASHED CLAIMING THAT WE'RE INTELLIGENT OUR ACTIONS MAKE THIS CLAIM ABSURD TO SELF-DESTRUCT, THAT’S WHO WE ARE WE'LL NEVER ADMIT THAT WE'VE GONE TOO FAR VERMIN ROAMING THE HIGHER GROUND EARTH DESTROYED, AND YET WE REMAIN PROUD HUMANS THINK THEY RULE THE EARTH PLAGUE OF THE WORLD - A RETCHED CURSE BASTARD - BASTARD SPECIES
