  • Fuck The BNP

    BNP, don't share your hate with me,
    I don't need you to tell me what to do, how to live, what to think, what to say
    all you do is ruin lives, with your sick and twisted lies
    so shut your mouth and burn in hell tonight

    just burn in hell tonight
    the fires gonna burn right through the night,
    the fires gonna burn right through the night (x2)

    BNP, fuck off and go away
    we don't need people like you to tell us how to live the right way
    youre worse than those you bash, so I suggest you trash
    cos effigies of you all burn to night

    just burn in hell tonight
    the fires gonna burn right through the night,
    the fires gonna burn right through the night (x2)

    just burn in hell tonight
    the fires gonna burn right through the night,
    the fires gonna burn right through the night (x2)

  • Cheltenham

    Well it sure don't seem like Cheltenham, on a day like today
    there ain't nobody paraletic and the skies are far from grey
    no police are gona come to the beer gardens, cos they don't really care
    if you wanna find a town thats going down, please dont look this way

    well i've tried, but things just dont make sense
    i'm still wondering why things were so intense
    and its true, things are getting strange
    but somethings telling me that my hometown has changed

    Cheltenham, we love you, but you are far too average
    thats why the chavs, pack their bags, theyre shipping off to stourbridge
    Cheltenham, we loe you, but I am getting bored
    of all these pointless stereotypes of burberry thats chored

    well I let home for the ninety-four, to cath a bus to gloucester
    turned out to be the eighty-three and I ended up in froucester
    had a look did me, there was fuck all to see so I went on back to Chelt
    said whats the point, rolled a joint, the size of Orion's belt

    well i've tried, but things just dont make sense
    i'm still wondering why things were so intense
    and its true, things are getting strange
    but somethings telling me that my hometown has changed

  • 7 Oz.

    I just had 7 ounces and now I'm no longer aware
    I just had 7 ounces and now I'm falling up the stairs
    It don't usually get into my head so bad the I wish that I was dead
    But Tonight I feel like nothing's real, feels like I've signed away my mind

    I've got this feeling in my head, I feel my eyes are turning red
    I've got this feeling in my head, I feel my eyes are turning red

    So If you want to get high, come on give it a try
    whats the worst that could happen girl, its not like you're gonna die tonight
    and if you want a smoke, come on and have a toke
    but I won't be around girl if you start to choke

    So please stop passing me that shit cus I'm wasting away
    Its strange to think that i was sober earlier today
    but now the walls are closing in somethings going wrong, I cant even begin
    to imagine why I feel so high, maybe I ate too much hash pie

    I've got this feeling in my head, I feel my eyes are turning red
    I've got this feeling in my head, I feel my eyes are turning red

    So If you want to get high, come on give it a try
    whats the worst that could happen girl, its not like you're gonna die tonight
    and if you want a smoke, come on and have a toke
    but I won't be around girl if you start to choke

    Solo
