Tiny Violin 04:12
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

What If 03:33
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?

Not The Face 03:14
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

Sisyphus 05:00
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

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

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?

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

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

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

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

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?

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
