I've got a super duper can of super strength And no front teeth, but that doesn't matter to me 'Cos I'm so high, I'm higher than the birds and planes and clouds But that's alright, 'cos I'm gonna crash land any minute You all look down on me Probably 'cos I can't stand On my own two feet. You're only happy she said When there's a drink in your hand Damn right I said right back What do I have nowadays, anyways? I said I would change my ways, but I lied And I will be this for the rest of my days A pint in one hand and a fag in the other Please believe me when I say There's no way I'd rather be, blind drunk and happy You all look down on me Probably 'cos I can't stand On my own two feet. You're only happy she said When there's a drink in your hand Damn right I said right back What do I have nowadays, anyways? You all look down on me Probably 'cos I can't stand On my own two feet. You're only happy she said When there's a drink in your hand Damn right I said right back What do I have nowadays, anyways?

So take me back, back to the days When the sun was out and so were we We didn't have to think about things, like university No not a care in the world we had And not a prayer, to call our own At trying to keep contact with all our peeps What's the point in trying to get a degree Stay young forever I say. So take me back to the summer of 2010 And when it ended we waited for it to come back around again Growing up when we were all friends A group of mates and a party every weekend Good memories and no responsibilities Summer spent chilling out at Sitting down on Maltby Skate Park All day and night until it got dark Tbh we never did much We never really did apart from Walking down to Tesco's to pass the time Never knew that loitering was a crime And I've been arrested five times And twice, I've been fined. What's the point in trying to get a degree Stay young forever I say. So take me back to the summer of 2010 And when it ended we waited for it to come back around again What's the point in trying to get a degree Stay young forever I say. So take me back to the summer of 2010 And when it ended we waited for it to come back around again

Not all bro's can pull a trigger you say But given the shot, I'd take it anyday And it's all about the time and the place that we're raised in Looking over my shoulder, in a city that never sleeps Guns and knives take place, in the pockets Of every guy to ever walk these streets You think you've got it made But we know the truth You think you've got it made Well I guess the streets could be safer You don't need backup, when you're John Mclaine I'm terrified of the centre at night Because I don't die hard and that's a shame Hoods up, socks on show Air Nike max and off you go Into the night but not to suck blood but to suck on the roach of a freshly rolled blunt You think you've got it made But we know the truth You think you've got it made Your lines are flatter than an open bottle of Bud And the world's a pretty messed up place You're not, making it any better A big, bad man persona Won't cover a bad tattoo or talentless song You're standing over there, with your hardcore mates I've got real friends, they aren't fake Your lines are flatter than an open bottle of Bud And the world's a pretty messed up place You're not, making it any better Your lines are flatter than an open bottle of Bud And the world's a pretty messed up place You're not, making it any better I'm not useless I'm not, useless

Six hours and nothing to show And now it's time for us to go For our bus, back home But unlike ET I can get home on 60p And I'd race him but he travels at lightspeed What a total disaster Save yourself, you shouted as the bus went up in smoke And I'm telling you that it's no Save yourself, you shouted as the bus went up in smoke And I'm telling you that it's no joke It's the pinnicle, I'm not being cynical It started out so promicing and working fine We got a song recorded and it sounded sublime Then the MR8 rubbish broke And everything we had, was gone without a sight so We said wipe the memory and start a fresh 'Cos we honestly believed it would be for the best But when we did more problems arose The untimely demise of the 8-track What a total disaster Save yourself, you shouted as the bus went up in smoke And I'm telling you that it's no Save yourself, you shouted as the bus went up in smoke And I'm telling you that it's no joke It's the pinnicle, I'm not being cynical If you've had a crappy day, let me hear you say Woah, Woah Woah, Woah Oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi, oi Save yourself, you shouted as the bus went up in smoke And I'm telling you that it's no Save yourself, you shouted as the bus went up in smoke And I'm telling you that it's no Joke

Three nights a week, maybe a full day or two Spend in this room, putting pen to paper Writing about all the things we see That are wrong, with the world we're living in Let me, tell you All the things we've been through We've been through 'Cos we've been dragging our feet Dragging our feet We've been dragging our feet For far too long I've burned a bridge or two, in the hope of a brighter future And we can laugh about all time we've spent 'Cos at the end of the day, we're just lads Writing songs, like it's all we've ever had Like it's all we've ever had Let me, tell you All the things we've been through We've been through 'Cos we've been dragging our feet Dragging our feet We've been dragging our feet For far too long We've tried, everything just to make this right We've tried, we've tried Still we're getting nowhere working overtime Still we're getting nowhere working overtime Let me, tell you All the things we've been through We've been through 'Cos we've been dragging our feet Dragging our feet We've been dragging our feet For far too long

Over the tram tracks I go Down the The Boardwalk, where we played our first shows God I do miss the days Where everyone came, to watch the bands play But it's boarded up now Kinda ironic I say beause of the name and because of the way The wood sits on the windows Why did those venue's close, don't you know we need those To promote and put on some cheap shows But we still try, try to make it by The Sheff music scene aint, what it used to be I miss the days when bands had fans, not just family And friends, at shows, the next gig who will know Could be days, weeks, months or years Why did those venue's close, don't you know we need those To promote and put on some cheap shows But we still try, try to make it by Maybe we'll never see those days again We'll have to wait and see, if not we'll have the memories La, la, la, la, la, la La, la, la, la, la, la La, la, la, la, la, la (Why did those venue's close) La, la, la, la, la, la (Why did those venue's, close)

There's no rush I thought to myself But then I realised, that I was wrong That I was so wrong, I mean I'm 19, already, in one year I'll be 20 I need to make good use of our time We need to make good use of our time We need to move on and move up and move out We need to get on with our lives, and never question why One thing, I need to do, is forget about this place I need to save some money up and Move away and get a fresh start from this town To get a fresh start, because It's rough and filled with scruffs And now I've had enough And now I've had enough I need to make good use of our time We need to make good use of our time We need to move on and move up and move out We need to get on with our lives, and never question why One thing, I need to do, is forget about this place The words I'm singing's got me thinking And the place I live in's got me thinking The words I'm singing's got me thinking And the place I live in's got me thinking The words I'm singing's got me thinking And the place I live in's got me thinking, that we We need to move on and move up and move out We need to get on with our lives, and never question why One thing, I need to do, is forget about this place We need to move on and move up and move out We need to get on with our lives, and never question why One thing, I need to do, is forget about this place We need to move on and move up and move out We need to get on with our lives, and never question why One thing, I need to do, is forget.
