Talk Hard 03:38
TALK HARD “People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.” – Bill Watterson, ‘Calvin & Hobbes Yukon Ho!’ I am not washed-up I should believe I am but I do not I still read all their ungraded hatemail Fourteen long years of school And all I learned was to fail But I am not proud To rot with that crowd ‘Cause I am stronger I was born in a force ten gale It takes more than hot air to blow the wind out of my sails And my eyesight’s poor But I am the future Hear me roar And get ready to talk hard Know this: your head is not empty So talk hard You can do anything you feel “Toilet-trained and dumb” When we first talk we learn by rote, “We are scum “We come from nothing? That’s what we deserve” Classrooms crowded with robots We are Goebbels’ children But we’re not down yet Don’t let them forget That we are stronger You were born ‘Til the day you die, you are alive While you’ve got the time At least try to justify yourself The buck stops with you and no-one else So get ready to talk hard Know this: your head is not empty So talk hard You can do anything you feel.

5X5 02:45
5X5 They said to never pass up on a good thing Like it was all just a matter of asking And kissing cold, dead lips and hands and asses I built a Legoland of fortune I put posters on my wall to worship: Tori’s hair and Brad Pitt’s six pack And where is the sin? Is it worse not to like yourself Or pretend that everything’s just fine? Full steam ahead Five by five Full steam ahead, boys Five by… They took notes It felt, I told them, Like I was failing an audition They said that was not how this should feel I filled a questionnaire out for them I held a match under my foreskin I left a scar I hoped would never, ever heal I know I’m alive Because I won’t be satisfied To accept contentment is to die inside Full steam ahead Five by five Full steam ahead, boys Five by five.

I AM NOT A VIRGIN It’s been a long time coming and you can’t stop It’s been a long time coming and you can’t stop And you want to get out but you can’t Not this time You think of all the neat leaflets you read When you were younger and still innocent And you want to get out but you can’t Not now Will the World seem different? How will you tell your friends? “I am not a virgin”? Not a virgin now And to think, you thought it would all make sense But all you feel is messed up now For such a big thing there’s little satisfaction A long time waiting for not much action He wanted to get out as soon as he could Whatever joy the future brings he’s there He’ll always have his fingers in your hair Say it: “I am not a virgin” Not a virgin now And to think, you thought it would all make sense But all you feel is let down You want to get out? You want to get out? You still can I am not a virgin Not a virgin now And to think, you thought it would all make sense But all you feel is let down.

about

Originally released June 2002 on Integrity Records INT009, thanks to them for these copies

“If you could be either God’s worst enemy or nothing, which would you choose? We are God’s middle children… with no special place in history and no special attention. Unless we get God’s attention, we have no hope of damnation or redemption. Which is worse, hell or nothing? Only if we’re caught and punished can we be saved.” – Chuck Palahniuk, ‘Fight Club’

These copies sold to raise money for Sid Hudson's Crowdfunder following a serious accident at Bury St Edmunds Skatepark:
