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: Now Or Never
The day we walked away
Want to bring it back again
It’s lost all meaning
Won't you let me stay?

And burn these bridges
I'll leave you with a smile
I just don't feel it
Won’t you let me go!

Pin me down
Tie my hands behind my back
Check my pulse
My heart's still beating

String me up
Tie the rope around my neck
Check my lungs
I'm still breathing

It's now or never

A new day comes around
Hailing a new sound
Let's start believing
And turn this ship around

Heading for the storm
All we feel's all we want
Can't look back now
Nowhere else to go

Pull me in and hold on tight
Don't let go

It’s now or never
It’s now or never
Track Name: Et Tu Brute
So far so good, but we misunderstood
The picture was to perfect
And we never thought you could

Do this, what's this? Oh no slap on the wrist
Your knuckles turning whiter
As you grip the knife you twist

"Et tu Brute?" so we sigh
Another knot to untie
"Et tu Brute?' is how you play
And you know no other way
And it’s a dirty bird indeed
That fouls its own nest and screams
"Et tu Brute?" so you say
But it's yourself you betray

Oh no, oh no we have to let you go
You've outstayed your welcome
Your popularity plateaued

Don't cry, don't cry, we had to say goodbye
We were far to open
And the door was far too wide

"Et tu Brute?" so we sigh
Another knot to untie
"Et tu Brute?' is how you play
And you know no other way
And it’s a dirty bird indeed
That fouls its own nest and screams
"Et tu Brute?" so you say
But it's yourself you betray
Track Name: I Can't Hear You
Like the ticking clock
You will not stop
You will not yield
You will not drop
Time and again
There is no end
You try it on
But I can’t pretend
Like an infection
Avoiding correction
There is no change
Just changed direction
Yes, like a disease
No cure can appease
No one can watch
But everyone sees

I can’t hear you
It's always the same
It's always the same
When is the time that you will not lie to me
Never lie to me, never lie to me

I can't feel you
Things will never change
Things will never change
When is the time to call in the cavalry
It’s for you not me, you not me

Further to fool
Deceit is your fuel
Smile on your face
Outlook so cool

Mirrors and smoke
Stories and jokes
Keep you alive
But just make me choke

The cackling clown
He just won’t drown
Hands round his neck
But he won’t go down

Misspent career
So insincere
You open your mouth
But I must shut my ears

I can’t hear you
It's always the same
It's always the same
When is the time that you will not lie to me
Never lie to me, never lie to me

I can't feel you
Things will never change
Things will never change
When is the time to call in the cavalry
It’s for you not me, you not me

Don’t you lie
Don’t you lie

When your lips open
Your secrets your lies
They come out like flies
Don’t you lie
Track Name: Honest Villain
Well they've got something
Something you lack
At least that’s how it seems
But it’s no fact

And they give relief
But now all we get is more grief
And guarantees
With extra fees


Your heroes promise the sun
No, they don't know what they've done
Your heroes just lead you on
No, No, I'd rather be an honest villain

And they have style
And they have grace
But they don’t even know when they lied
Straight to your face

So what’s new?
Now that all the guilt is on you
They fooled themselves
But so did you

Your heroes promise the sun
No, they don't know what they've done
Your heroes just lead you on
No, No, I'd rather be an honest villain

So here’s the sun now watch and learn
Don’t aim to close or you’ll get burned
Yeah burned
Track Name: [Insert Words Here]
Insert words here
And then score
Dumb reflection
Always leave them wanting more

You and me sing endlessly but
You say nothing, I say nothing
Maybe that's the way it should be

Just add soul now
Ego healing
Take a deep bow
Try it one more time with feeling

And if I told you something new, would that be "something"
And if I gave you insight too, would that be “seeing”
And if I left you with a thought, would that be “thinking”
If I believe I’m making art, it’s me I’m fooling

You and me sing endlessly but
You say nothing, I say nothing
Maybe that's the way it should be
Track Name: Yourself Defence
Shut up, shut up,
You never listen
You only give up

“Cough up, cough up”
Again, again,
Enough is enough

I'm not here for you
I'm not here for you

Falling further into fiction
Crawling back inside addiction
Cry wolf to your cash dispenser
Hide behind “yourself defence”, yeah

Bail out, bail out
It’s all you know
It’s all you're about

Give in to the pill
You’ve got your crutch
And I get the bill

I'm not here for you
I'm not here for you

Falling further into fiction
Crawling back inside addiction
Cry wolf to your cash dispenser
Hide behind “yourself defence”
Track Name: Timewaster (Behind The Glass)
The last thing on your mind is memento mori
But no escape route is incentive enough for me
Comfortable is just another word for lost (no doubt)
But there’s no comfort in waiting to be crossed out

I don't want to waste my time left
Don't you try to stop me thinking
You talk of life; you don't know what it’s for
Clutching at straws instead of asking more
Surviving just to be put out to grass
Don't want to waste a life behind the glass

Tick tock, this wheel’s not ever going to stop
Even long after I must shut up shop
So I, yes I have something I should say
Better to burn out then to fade away

I don't want to waste my time left
Don't you try to stop me thinking
You talk of life; you don't know what it’s for
Clutching at straws instead of asking more
Surviving just to be put out to grass
Don't want to waste a life behind the glass

Long weight
Lost face
Long wait
Lost fate

I don't want to waste my time left
Don't you try to stop me dreaming
You talk of life; you don't know what it’s for
Clutching at straws instead of asking more
Surviving just to be put out to grass
Don't want to waste a life behind the glass
Track Name: That’s How I Like It
You were sent here to test me
Beyond the realms of possibility
I don’t do clever
I just make noise

That’s how I like it
Makes me so excited
That’s how I like it

Twisted and burning I drop you to your knees
Devil on shoulder, he’s whispering to me
“Don’t try and be clever
You can’t fight noise”

And now I like it
Makes me so excited
That’s how I like it

I can’t say no,
I can’t say no,
I can’t say no,
To me

That’s how I like it
Makes me so excited
That’s how I like it
Track Name: Faith Or Fear
Bring me your cheers, light up the sky
Grand puppeteer, watching you die

So much you give, not to receive
Soak up your trust, you must believe

I am free
While you pay respect to me
I am free
Only while you let me be

Follow the face of me
Fall in the place of me
Lend me your ears
I'll send you back the tears for free

By faith or fear

Only one choice, you get to choose
Choke on the words, you'll never use
You can't exist if you don't listen to me
You can't resist, I'm everything

Follow the face of me
Fall in the place of me
Lend me your ears
I'll send you back the tears for free

Fallen ghosts of liberty
Cry out for the end of me

Don’t look now. I’m closer than you think
Somewhere between the gaps, don’t blink
Don’t look. I’m closer than you know
I’m here, I rule this show

Follow the face of me
Fall in the place of me
Lend me your ears
I'll send you back the tears for free
Track Name: Wrecking Ball
Free Fall
Rag Doll
Close call
Brick wall

I am the wrecking ball
I take a swing and watch you fall
I am your wrecking ball
I'm within you, one and all

Struck down
No sound
Bleed out
No Doubt

Slow motion emotional implosion
Split second decimation

I am the wrecking ball
You will fall
I am the wrecking ball
You must fall

I am the wrecking ball
At some point you all fall
I am the wrecking ball
At some point you all must fall


I am the wrecking ball
I am inside you all
Track Name: Sick
Fight, fate, the universe can wait
Fight, fate, oh yeah the gods can wait

Until I've lost my arms
Until I've lost my feet
Until I've cut the strings that bind me
I won't accept defeat

Fight, fate, the universe can wait
Fight, fate, oh yeah the gods can wait

Until I've lost my voice
Until I lose my sight
Until I break the strings that hold me
I won't give up the fight

Fight, fate, the universe can wait
Don't want us to exist, just to be mistakes
Not to love, not to learn, not to watch everything burn
Not to breathe, not to try, not to live only to die

Until I am still and cold
“Impossible” has no foothold
