Cool breeze on this warm night, get down get out of sight No-one knows that we were there, drive around without a care In a while there’ll be no trace, fuck the bastard in his resting place Got the body, the bag, crate of beers, 20 grand and no ideas Our friend is laid out in the back, laid out with the tyre and jack His only coat’s his body bag Can’t pretend to care, coz we’re glad Travelling down this dusty road, a story that can’t be told Our dear friend is out of luck Don’t ask why, no-one gives a fuck No tail lights till the break of dawn, don’t look round coz we’ll be gone Tomorrow’s so far away, so far away I just can’t see Just concerned with the here and now Focus, don’t know how In a while there’ll be no trace, fuck the bastard in his resting place Goodbye our good intentions Don’t look back, just walk away The only sign that we were there, tyre treads, warm earth Coldness from our friend inside, should’ve listened, wouldn’t have died Lonely now in his resting place, in a while there’ll be no trace Got the body, the bag, crate of beers, 20 grand and some big ideas

Will you ever learn? Will you ever see? The things you place a value on are never gonna be. You always gotta take You always did before Your friends they offered everything and still you wanted more. There's hatred in your words Anger in your voice There's bitterness and bile but you made your own choice. Will you ever learn? Will you ever see? Stupidity's your middle name you fucking cunt! You can blame me, hate me, slag me, slate me You can beat me and you can kill me But it's never gonna be the way you want it to be Inside (Outside) pick me on the winning side Inside outside Will you ever learn? Will you ever see? You fucked it up yourself with your negativity. So paranoid and wrong Angry at the world Look a little closer and you'll see what caused your fall. There's nothing wrong with me It's all inside your head Accusing me of this n that and things I never said Will you ever learn? Will you ever see? Stupidity's your middle name you fucking cunt! You can blame me, hate me, slag me, slate me You can beat me and you can kill me But it's never gonna be the way you want it to be Inside (Outside) selfish talk of suicide Inside outside

Pressure (pressure) Builds and builds and builds when will it stop? I feel so hot and I can't cool down Right now I choke but soon I'll drown Have I gone too far to turn around? Going down, going down, going down Standby - it's time to die One last kiss and one last goodbye Standby - it's time to die It's much too late to be asking why. Voices (voices) Droning on and on and on and on My head's on fire and I've lost the plot My heart is broke and my nerves are shot Have I gone too far to stop the rot? Going down. The point of no return's in sight I don't have the strength to win this fight It's time to crash turn out the lights Gonna die, gonna die, gonna die!

Inside, outside, upside down All my life I've played the clown I'll end it all in this dead-end (fucking) town Nightmare stuck inside this hole My brain is mush, I've lost control How much further will I fall? So much shit stuck in my head, I wish that I was dead Happy days This way, that way, where to go? Will I learn? I just don't know Everything's I told you so All these nights, all these regrets I tried so hard but can't forget All caught up with me in the end

NO BRAKES Childhood memories, fun and games The sun was shining every day Inseperable as we charged around Knocking the obstacles (other kids) to the ground No brakes - got no brakes No brakes - can't slow down No brakes - got no brakes Can't stop, won't stop, take you down. Full of beans we hit top speed Unstoppable, two-man wrecking spree As all around us targets fell We'd grin from ear-to-ear and yell
6.
NEVER SAY NEVER Never stop thinking, thinking 'bout you Heart misses a beat when i'm talking to you, cos I'm lost in you Never say never, it's not over, I don't want this to end Never say never, it's not over, i just can't be your friend The white lady sings but it's all in vain She'll carry on and so will i, cos it's worth the pain ZOMBIE HOLOCAUST Keep looking forward, looking high Find a new way of getting high Rise above the chaos for a while Get back in the chase Into oblivion we will drive Wasted on the dash, truth on our minds Tick, tick, tock we will not stop Get back in the race The truth is dead Just us alive Welcome to the rest of your life
7.
We'll bring you peace If you want it or not And you'll be grateful When your children are shot We come in peace, we come to free you We come in peace, we'll free the shit out of you Cities are burning Smoke fills the sky For peace and for freedom Thousands will die

about

Our first recordings for quite a few years...hence the title.

All 4 studio tracks were recorded, mixed and mastered by the lovely Matt Pumpkin at Made Of Ale Studios, Manchester, Bristol and Wootton Bassett.
We've been playing 3 of these songs live for a few years now but never got round to getting them recorded, the other track (Standby To Die) has never been played live.

As for the live tracks, they were the better sounding ones out of shedloads that we've collected over the years and though they're down as 3 tracks there are actually 5.

**For anyone who would rather have a CD version, there will be a limited run of CD's from next week**

Hope you like them and we hope it's not so long til we get some more recordings done.

Cheers folks!
