MY BAND--- I SING DUDE!-- www.the_underachievers.tripod.com


here goes:


well we dont need no one to tell us what to do
oh yes were on our own and theres nothing you can do
so we dont need no one like You
to tell us what to do!
we dont refer to the past when showing what weve done
a generation gap means a war is never won
the past is in your head
the futures in our hands!
cos im a brat, and i know everything and i talk back
cos im not listening to anything you say


and if you count to three (1..2..3!)
youll see its no emergency
youll seem im not the enemy
just a prisoner of socieieiety (listen to song and ull understand)


well we dont need no one to tell us what to do
oh yes were on our own and theres nothing you can do
so we dont need no one like You
to tell us what to do!
cos im a brat, and i know everything and i talk back
cos im not listening to anything you say

and if you count to three (1..2..3!)
youll see its no emergency
youll seem im not the enemy
just a prisoner of socieieiety
GO!

*solo*

well we dont need no one to tell us what to do

Growing up (Falling Down)
Living End - Growing Up (Falling Down)




I'm lying on my head
No I'm, I'm not in my bed
Just checkin' out the world
From a different angle
That's what happens when you trip
On your blindness always seems
For some reason
That it's happening to me

Why is it so and why don't I know?
Why is it so I can't see
The obstacle in front of me
The obstacle in front of me
Christ, I'm falling down again
It happens to me now and then
I'm growing up, yeah
Growing up, yeah
I won't let it fade away
I promise to be strong and brave
I'm growing up, yeah
Growing up, yeah

Open up your eyes
And maybe then you'll realize
The truth is in the thoughts you hold
And not the obstacle in front of you

Why is it so and why don't I know?
Why is it so I can't see
The obstacle in front of me
The obstacle in front of me
Christ, I'm falling down again
It happens to me now and then
I'm growing up, yeah
Growing up, yeah
I won't let it fade away
I promise to be strong and brave
I'm growing up, yeah
Growing up, yeah

Falling down, Falling down, Falling down
Falling down, Falling down, Falling down

I'm lying on my head
No I'm, I'm not in my bed
Just checkin' out the world
From a different angle
That's what happens when you trip
On your blindness always seems
For some reason
That it's happening to me

Why is it so and why don't I know?
Why is it so I can't see
The obstacle in front of me
The obstacle in front of me
Christ, I'm falling down again
It happens to me now and then
I'm growing up, yeah
Growing up, yeah
I won't let it fade away
I promise to be strong and brave
I'm growing up, yeah
Growing up, yeah

Falling down (growing up, yeah)
Falling down (growing up, yeah)
Falling down (growing up, yeah)
Falling down (growing up, yeah)
Falling down (growing up, yeah)
Falling down (growing up, yeah)

Second Solution
VERSE 1

Standin' on a streetlight tryin' to get away,
Guilty, guilty, I hear what you say.
Countin' down the hours but I haven't got the time,
The 23rd precinct jumpin' on the line, on the line.

CHORUS

And what I wanna know, is will I get death row,
Or is there a Second Solution?
And what I wanna say, Is will I die today,
Or will I get... a Second Solution?

VERSE 2

It was never meant to end this way,
One shot violence I hear what you say.
Standin' on a streetlight tryin' to get away,
Guilty, guilty, I hear what I say, what I say.

West End Riot
Living End - West End Riot




There's a kid who was born and was raised
In the west
There's a kid from the east that never really fit in
With the rest
Every week they would meet in the street
With their friends
With the guns that they made and the caps that they stole
They would fight to their death
This time we'll have victory
Last time ended in a defeat
Our town becomes a battleground
Battleground, battleground

West end riot (riot)
West end riot (riot)
We'll be here next Saturday
With our guns and our heads held high
So, listen up, boys, you'd better not cry this time

See a bum on the street that you
Think you recognize
Young kid never looked so bad
When he was only four foot high
Six o'clock running home
I don't wanna be late
Another Saturday of sun and war
Shared with our mates
This time we'll have victory
Last time ended in a defeat
Our town becomes a battleground
Battleground, battleground

West end riot (riot)
West end riot (riot)
We'll be here next Saturday
With our guns and our heads held high
So, listen up, boys, you'd better not cry

Boys will be boys
Playing up and making lots of noise
Never used to talk about the future
Never thought that we'd have to care
So west end riot

There's a man who was born in the west
Working at a factory
There's a man from the east
Who now runs the whole company
How they've grown on their own
Not like the kids they used to be
Saturdays of sun and war
Just faded memories

West end riot (riot)
West end riot (riot)
We'll be here next Saturday
With our guns and our heads held high
So, listen up, boys, you'd better not cry
Listen up, boys, you'd better not cry
Listen up, boys, you'd better not cry this time

Bloody Mary
Living End - Bloody Mary


The Living End – 1998

Well there's no time to stop her now
Mary's gonna get her way somehow

Still just a game but I ask her and remind
Still just a game but I ask her and remind that Mary…

23 seconds on the floor
Is all she needs and not a minute more

Still just a game but I ask her and remind
Still just a game but I ask her and remind that Mary…

You'll die tonight!back to top
Monday
Living End - Monday


The Living End – 1998

Monday, a day like no other
Monday, was their last day
Some say, life is a struggle
Some say, life should be easy

One day, in a peaceful village
School day, in working DUNBLANE
ONE man, could change their whole world
One man, is all it took for...

No school today, it's just a memory
ONE MIND GONE WRONG???

I don't wanna play on Monday
I don't wanna play on Monday
Pinned to my memory, not just another Monday
It seems like such a lie

Change of plans on a rainy day
A new lesson to be learnt today
Pack up your guns and your soldiers too
Because one sick mind depends on YOU...

Playin' quietly, along came destiny, I don't wanna play...back to top
All Torn Down
Living End - All Torn Down




I see the city and it isn't what it used to be
A million houses going up and down in front of me
No time to let the concrete set
Before it's broken up again
Don't care if it's historic, don't really care at all

A hidden landscape on the brink of a development
A protest rally never satisfied with development
Both striving for a perfect world
Each having their own opinion
Don't care if it's historic, don't really care at all

All torn down
All torn down
All torn

I see the city and it's grown into a big machine
The streets are freeways and the parks are just a memory
No time to let the concrete set
Before it's broken up again
Don't care if it's historic, don't really care at all

All torn down
All torn down
All torn
You've got no reason
You've got no reason
You've got no reason
You've got no reason now

All torn down
All torn down
All torn
You've got no reason
You've got no reason
You've got no reason
You've got no reason
You've got no reason
You've got no reason
You've got no reason
You've got no reason now
You've got no reason
You've got no reason
You've got no reason
You've got no reason
You've got no reason
You've got no reason
You've got no reason
You've got no reason now

Save the Day
Living End - Save the Day


The Living End – 1998

So here I come to save the day
A regular Joe now on parade
They say, it's the only way, but they
They only want it when it's there

So here I come to save the day
The future's here and the past is yesterday
They say, it's the only way, they say
They only want it when it's there

We're not going on a holiday
We do a lot of work and we don't get paid
Stand up don't walk away
Take your pride and swallow

Life's full of much unwanted waste
Crime pays and the junkies walk away
But for husband and the good son
They speak ill at ease but they dare not run

They dare NOT RUNback to top
Trapped
Living End - Trapped


The Living End – 1998

Here it comes again
Don't let it pass you by like the city bound train
You know it's up to us
To lead the way and march toward victory
Standin' on the right side, who knows what's right?

Don't look now, seems like we're TRAPPED somehow
I'm not sure if we'll ever make it out of here alive
Don't look now, seems like we're TRAPPED somehow
Time is almost up, but the war has just begun

We're stuck inside a place
And soon we'll have to face the outside world...
The anger on the street
Begins to raise some heat, and we're almost out of timeback to top
Have They Forgotten
Living End - Have They Forgotten




One soul, one life
One soul, one life, one meaning

One soul, one life, one meaning
As far as we know
So why the hell should we be grieving?
I don't know
A house without no hope
They say there's nothing we can do
Just stand back
But while the government comforts you
And say "let's be patient"
One more cell becomes vacant

Have they forgotten what it's all about?
Sometimes I wonder, can't work it out
An equation with no answer
Have they forgotten what it's all about?

They say theres nothing we can do
Just stand back
But while the government comforts you
And say "let's be patient"
One more cell becomes vacant

Have they forgotten what it's all about?
Sometimes I wonder, can't work it out
An equation with no answer
Have they forgotten what it's all about?

Too many times we don't react
Too many things, oh, that's just crap
And if you cannot see the effect it has on me
You're blind

Have they forgotten what it's all about?
Sometimes I wonder, can't work it out
An equation with no answer
Have they forgotten what it's all about?

Fly Away
Living End - Fly Away




I've told myself so many times
Not to turn into the type but I've found
Is it too late? Has my time come?
Sometimes I think I'm losin' it, am I the only one?

Understanding, more like demanding
Where do the grey skies end?
So should I stay or fly away?
The wings that I begin to grow
Will surely let me know
How far I have to go
And I'll be there

Oh yet again, thought I was right
But as usual I end up on the wrong side of the fence
Is it too late? Has my time come?
Sometimes I think I'm losin' it, am I the only one?

Understanding, more like demanding
Where do the grey skies end?
So should I stay or fly away?
The wings that I begin to grow
Will surely let me know
How far I have to go
And I'll be there

Understanding, more like demanding
Where do the grey skies end?
So should I stay or fly away?
The wings that I begin to grow
Will surely let me know
How far I have to go
And I'll be there

Will surely let me know
How far I have to go
And I'll be there

I Want a Day
Living End - I Want A Day


The Living End – 1998

10.50, 3 minutes till, till 11 I don't want the alarm again
9.30, 3 minutes till, on the way to work, not smiling

I know time to go and punch my card in
Today, just another day at eleven
Got to help, so much to tidy up, too much too soon

I want a day, where I don't have to get up
Sometimes I'm sick of being in a rut
I want a day, where I don't have to go to work
This low life job makes me feel like a jerk

So dirty, burnt fingers to the bone
Not fair to be left in this job all alone
No help, no credit for making this
Evil machine doesn't stop
Am I going to spend every day of my life Living this way NO WAY!back to top
Strange
Living End - Strange


Hellbound - 1995

I never thought that I was strange
I always had something to do to think about
They say that some things never change
Well I guess they do
Cos I never thought I was strange

So I maybe off the wall, just a little bit
I may seem to be unfriendly
But that's not it

Strange looks from everybody around
Well I don't care ‘cos I'm not fooling around
I don't know what makes me different and I don't care
Maybe it's not my problem, why do they stare?

Sometimes I stop. Think for a while

I don't know what makes me different
And I don't care
Maybe it's not my problem
Why do they stare?back to top
