about

I Plead Irony Farnborough, UK

I Plead Irony know exactly what they are doing.

These “accomplished band whores” as a local rock hero Paul Townsend (Hundred Reasons) describes them certainly provide more angst ridden, raw edged rock with lashings of melody then you can shake your “sign of the horns” or even a stick at! ... more

Track Name: Tiny Violin
No more talk
Who cares,who wins the war?
On everything before
Who cares who wins?

No, no
You win, the tiny violin
Go, go
Go play, your tiny violin

Hearts and flowers
Who cares, who has the power?
Over the wasted hours
Who cares who wins?

No, no
You win, the tiny violin
Go, go
Go play, your tiny violin
Track Name: What If
I wake up, look in the mirror
Something stares back at me and shivers
What if I’ll look like this fool forever?
What if I’ll look like this fool forever?

I give up, it seems so unlikely
Someone will sum up, others will deride me
But better to have been,
Than just to have been what others see

What If I try to be someone better?
What If I follow all the trend setters?
What if I’ll look like this fool forever?

So again, I stare at the mirror
Someone grins back at me like a winner
We are not the same
But I’ll wait to see what time delivers next

What if we’re trapped in this glass together?
What if we’re doomed to be nothing better?
What if I act like this fool forever?

What if I look like this fool forever?
So what if I look like this fool forever?

Forever

What if we’re trapped in this glass together?
What if we’re doomed to be nothing better?
What if I look like this fool forever?
Track Name: Not The Face
I’m not a person
I’m just a body with no head
No interaction
I’m just a body with no head
There’ll be no feeling
I’m just a body with no head
No beauty within
I’m just a body with no head

Just not the face
What eyes don’t see will tell no stories
Just not the face
But body blows are fine

Just not the face
The vision of an empty role-play
Just not the face
The camera never lies

I’m not authentic
I’m just a body with no head
Misrepresented
I’m just a body with no head
I’m desperation
I’m just a body with no head
I crave adoration
I’m just a body with no head

Just not the face
No sign, no disgrace
Just not the face
Obscurity leaves no trace
Track Name: Sisyphus
I’m not combusting
But I feel on fire
I’m not sleeping
But I don’t feel tired
I’m not a reason
But I have intent
I’m not conflict
But I must dissent

One more rock
Towards the top
I might not fail
I must not stop

Just one more rock
Towards the top
To tell my story
Bathe in glory

I can't, can't turn back
I can't turn my back
No escape but no regret
I can't, can't turn back

I am defeated
But still I toil
Doomed to repeat
But my blood won’t boil
I am lost here
But I know this trail
Forever working
Not tipping the scales

One more rock
Towards the top
I might not fail
I must not stop

Just one more rock
Towards the top
To tell my story
Bathe in glory

So I keep moving from fear that I'll fall
Some illusion, some dream to break it all

I can't turn back
And I can't turn my back
Track Name: Just A Machine
I think I’m free but I’m still in a cage
Think I’m living but I’m stuck on a stage
Think I ‘believe’ but I’m just told what I’ve seen
Because I’m just a machine

I think I’m thinking but I think I forgot
Keep me yearning for the things I’ve not got
They keep me talking when I have nothing to say
Nobody home today

This is the news of the world
You’ve got no right to be heard
Thought you were free
But you bought your freedom away

This is the news of the world
You’ve got to pay to be heard
Thought you were free
But you bought your freedom away

My blood is pumping and my heart still beats
Chemical choices, you can’t delete
So many motions with emotional ground
All without a sound

Make a decision; do I know it’s my own?
Or just an echo of things I’ve been shown
Do I have reason or just reasons to be?
Just what is left of me?

This is the news of the world
You’ve got no right to be heard
Thought you were free
But you gave your freedom away

This is the news of the world
You’ve got to fight to be heard
Thought you were free
But you bought your freedom away

I’m not here to help you
I don’t know what that means
I’m not here to comfort
I’m just a machine

I’m just a machine

This was the news of the world
You paid just not to be heard
Thought you were free
But you bought your freedom away

This was the news of the world
You’ve got no rights at all
Thought you were free
But you threw your freedom away
Track Name: What's Best For You
Have you changed your diet yet?
Have you changed your fashion sense?
Have you changed your body?
Have you gained another pound?
Still not been found?
You’re such a loser

Do they say that you’re too young?
Just check that tongue
Yeah, just be quiet
Do they just not like your face?
You just don’t know your place

Have you said fuck you
To what you’re supposed to do
To everything that says
What's, best, for, you,
Fuck you
To who you're supposed to be
To everyone that says
What you should be

Have you lost your innocence?
Resorting to pretence?
Are you a failure?
Have you changed just to be liked?
Just to stop the fight
Well who can blame ya?

Have you been told you're not understood?
That you’re no good
Do you believe them?
Do they say that you're too old
You’re not involved

Have you said fuck you
To what you’re supposed to do
To everything that says
What's, best, for, you,
Fuck you
To who you're supposed to be
To everyone that says
What you should be


Have they made you sing their tune?
Are you dead too soon?
Have you forgotten?
Do you think you think you're through?
Have you forgotten “you”?
Never forget fuck you

They say…
But who the fuck are “they”
And what the fuck do “they” know anyway?
Track Name: Unsung Champions
Forgotten heroes with no name
Empty spaces in the halls of fame
But we recall who played their part
And carved their icons inside our hearts

Sing now, sing now, sing now, sing now

Unsung champions
Scream it from your lungs
Sing for the ones that they don’t know

Unsung champions
Unknown but never gone
Shout for the ones they’ll never know

Sing now, sing now, sing now, sing now

Some have fallen and some stand tall
But we remember and serenade them all

Unsung champions
Scream it from your lungs
Sing for the ones that they don’t know

Unsung champions
Unknown but never gone
Shout for the ones they’ll never know

Sing now, sing now, sing now, sing now
Track Name: Prove Me Wrong
So you say the facts don't fit
Or you don't like the look of it
And little words trip off your tongue
Like fired shots from a gun

You want to be right all the time
You don't like an uphill climb

Prove me wrong
That's what you said all along
Prove me wrong
But all of my patience is gone

Again, again, my little friend
Those tiny facts you like to bend
Weasel words, spat through your teeth
Betray the void that lies beneath

You want to be so admired
Too bad your outlook is so tired

Prove me wrong
That's what you said all along (can you)
Prove me wrong
But all of my patience is gone

Prove me wrong
That's what you said all along
Prove me wrong
But all of my patience is gone
Track Name: Divide[...]Collide
Go left or right, or take the middle
See fact or fake, don't take the riddle

Divide
Collide
Our circle’s only have one side
Ignore
Once more
Our circles led us here before

Obdurate pride and steadfast hate
Don't reason through, just take the bait

Divide
Collide
Our circles only have one side
Ignore
Once more
Our circles led us here before

Divide
Collide
Our circles only have one side
Ignore
Once more
Our circles led us here before
Track Name: Kill The Crow
How many time must I fall?
To rise and face the despair tall
You cannot break or hold me down
You cannot keep me on the ground

Oh no you can’t kill the crow
No, no you can’t kill the crow

Another bruise another wound
Another pain within consumed
I am immortal while I try
I’ll be immortal ‘til I die

Oh No, You can’t kill the crow
No, no you can’t kill the crow

And the things you can't see
Already define me

And no words ever spoken
Can ever cause me to be broken

Oh No You can’t kill the crow
No no you can’t kill the crow
Track Name: Tragedy Debut
Don’t think so loud
Someone might hear
Don’t talk so loud
You’ll disappear

And don’t ever listen
Don’t ever listen
Don’t ever listen
Don’t ever listen

Don’t ever listen
Don’t ever listen
Don’t ever listen

Would you like to make your tragedy debut?
Could you ever be so true?

Don’t play the fool
Just play the game
Don’t make a choice
They’re all the same

And don’t ever listen
Don’t ever listen
Don’t ever listen
Don’t ever listen

Don’t ever listen
Don’t ever listen
Don’t ever listen

Would you like to make your tragedy debut?
Could you ever be so true?

Would you like to make your tragedy debut?
Could you ever be so true?
