Craving from insipid small world views hide your senses from the news the truth is we’re happy with the blues and always wanna be in other peoples shoes You want the world as long as its you shaped x2 Under the skin we’re all the same bits and peices caused us shame and when are excuses seem so lame there’s always someone else to blame tug the heartstrings with both hands and cheer the gladiators from the stands endlessly forming futile plans while leaving temporary footprints in the sand

When it all get too much And I can’t stand the hype You are my salvation You show me wrong from right When all these false dawns Lay gaping and there’s nothing left to trust My only means of escaping is vinyl primal lust We’re Independent and unrepentant We’re Independent are you? We’re Independent and unrepentant So what the hell are you… gonna do? Today was like any other day I had to get my fix So I went to the local ‘superstore’ To re-leave my teenage kicks But all the wracks and recommendations The neon and the sales just left me cold Salvations train had left the rails The spell had lost its hold It’s the pain, it’s the inspiration That keeps this fire alive Without diversification You and I will not survive.

Come and see!!!!!!! Flashing flags and fashioned fags come and see the freak in me Rags, shags and hand bags this century is meant to be Dyed hair pickers and flares At least when someone stares, then somebody cares Come and see what’s meant to be The freak show of the century! I think you’ll find they don’t even know Their own minds, step out side Let the foolish run and hide

Look out! Tonight, I don’t wanna come home (cos I love you) Don’t want you to see me this way But if I don’t come back tonight I’ll be alright and we’ll return to the joys of yesterday When I’m alone I watch the sky The stars are shinning high and bright The Joys of yesterday

I miss you in the middle of the night is that right, cos you are so bright I miss you in the middle of the day What can I say you blow me away I miss you when you’re not here am I clear I think I’ll need another year will I pay? Maybe on another day, what can I say? You blow me away You’re a good girl I’m more a girl’s world Like a flag pole with it’s flag unfurled I’m so easy come on appease me You’re a nightmare bright and breezy

The tacky spendour of a seedy hotel a dead carnation in a ragged lapel I could tell from your demenour that once your life was cleaner Lord of the board always struck the right chord temptation makes you bored cocky never shocking in your fishnet stockings The Faint flicker of a bright past you nailed your colours to the tallest mast The Faint flicker of a bright past shame it was never built to last The tacky spendour of a seedy hotel a dead carnation in a ragged lapel I could tell your life was cleaner till the dabs and crabs catapulted you to hell!!!

I wish I hadn’t done it last night, but I can’t resist the shine of the bright light my minds on fire my chest is tight whatever happened to a friday night? Dissatisfaction’s bourne at birth our destiny returns too soon to earth Hey yeah hey yeah Hey yeah hey yeah

All the Teeterin fags droppin there shopping bags 6 pound of squashed bananas and ripping out the price tags 80 or 8 they all meet the same fate queing at the bus stop while lookin overweight Freaks of the Daylight How can I kick out the jams With all these millions of prams I’m getting very lazy In the village of the damned There are leasions in the regions Of the most together legions Whose reasons have no seasons or no soul so it’s time for you to decide with your arms and legs spread wide it’s time to sell your soul to rock’n’roll

Discordant discharge afterbirth of answers take a little soupcon obliterate the dance class high kicks hair flicks screamin out of nose licks cheesegrate the groove sharks think i’ve got my card marked Too busy, thinkin about me Saluting our arousers the attitude of firefly whose legend will never die singing about philatio quoting lines from plato johnny’s doin’ arter plantin his potato Too busy, thinkin about me Grizzles got an owls ear ronnie loves the weak beer a constant crave for twisted cheer party or get outa here some say that flamboyance is an annogram of arrogance

about

"Something wicked this way comes. I am fairly certain that had The Scratch been around at punk rock prime time, they would have given the likes of The Buzzcocks and The Who a jolly good run for their money. It has been some time since this more classic style of punk rock has graced the airwaves, and I think that really, it’s about time. Make way for The Scratch. ‘THIS ALBUM IS A SHINING BEACON OF PUNK ROCK FINESSE’"
[Tiff Woosley TSM Radio]
