Track Name: When the Party Died
Woke up this morning with a head full of sun, I
Wondered where the girl I met last night had gone,
Wondered when the party died and drink run dry, my
Heads on fire feel like I'm gonna die

Just a teenage boy on the run
I'm just a teenage boy on the run
I'm' just a teenage boy but I am trying to have fun

Woke up this morning I am dazed and confused, I
Wonder how many cigarettes used
Wonder if I toasted to my good health cause
Lord what have I done to myself

Just a teenage boy on the run
I'm just a teenage boy on the run
They call me teenage boy but I am trying to have fun

What is the girl's name I always forget
Even though we only just met
Why are my mates always upset
Even though it was months ago, months ago, months ago

Hey! 1 2 3 4

Just a teenage boy on the run
They call me teenage boy on the run
I'm just a teenage boy but I am trying to have fun

Caught off guard I had no time to prepare
Saw you in the chair in the room over there
My friends said keep your head down don't act the clown
Isn't this just the funniest punchline I've ever found

Your a teenage girl on the run
I'm just a teenage boy trying to have fun
We're just teenagers on the run
They'll call us teenagers but we are trying to have fun

Hey! 1 2 3 4
Track Name: Hyde
Falling down the cracks, falling down cracks, sweat is on my back
Falling down the cracks, falling down cracks, shivers on attack
Falling down the cracks, running down the tracks, sweat is on my back but shivers on attack

5 percent, cant control
95 percent is willing to show, that Hyde is on attack
Hyde is on attack

Face hits the floor, face hits the ground, people all around
Face hits the floor, face hits the ground, people all around laughs to be found,
Face hits the floor, face hits the ground, people all around no dignity to be found

5 percent, cant control
95 percent is willing to show, that Hyde is on attack
Hyde is on attack

She's running down the tracks, she's running down the tracks, Hyde is on her back
She's running down the tracks, she's falling down the cracks, heavy breath upon her back shivers on attack
Face hits the floor, face hits the ground, people all around nothing left to be found.

Hey

(Wail like a mad man)

I will never stop, stop, thinking about you, thinking about you

I will never stop, stop, thinking about you, thinking about you

I will never stop, stop, thinking about you, thinking about you

I will never stop, stop, thinking about you, by drinking about you

5 percent, cant control
95 percent I never want to know
95 percent is willing to show, that Hyde is on attack
Track Name: Broken Lance
And so far,
There's been differences and troubles since the day we parted
And so far,
Is the land that you are living in to the land you called home
To go far,
Is the reason of you leaving and I won't hold that against you

So go far even if the people turn their backs
Friend go far even if the people turn their back
Friend go far even if the people turn their back ill never turn my back on you

And too much,
Is their left to do, left to say, left to say to you
And too much
am I winding in the same old place and drinking without you
And too much
am I looking round the room with doppelgangers in plain view

So go far even if the people turn their backs
Friend go far even if the people turn their back
Friend go far even if the people turn their back ill never turn my back on you

Surrounded by you
Surrounded by you
Surrounded by you
Surrounded by you

Brothers to the end, Brotherhood never ends, Brothers to the end
Brothers to the end, Brotherhood never ends, Brothers to the end

Broken ranks that are calling your name, the hero will return will return
Broken ranks that are calling your name, can't fix on my own my own
Broken ranks that are calling your name, the hero will return will return
Broken ranks that are calling your name, can't fix on my own my own

Broken Lance and golden mane, the hero will return will return
Broken Lance and golden mane, the hero will return will return
Broken Lance and golden mane, the hero will return will return
Broken Lance and golden mane, the hero will return will return
Track Name: Make 'em Laugh
Might as well call me posh
Might as well say that I'm not, grateful for what I've got
Yes sir I went to school
Yes sir I paid it too, doesn't that make me the shit

So, make 'em laugh cos' I,
Haven't got half the courage you have

Oh I wish I had the life
To write about the fight, maybe somebody would listen
Oh I wish I had the life
To write about those countless nights, when I hurt somebody

So, make 'em laugh cos' I,
Haven't got half the courage you have

Oohhh, Oohhh

Just cause I paid to learn
Doesn't mean we cannot turn, this into friendship
Do you think that I don't bleed
What do you think comes out of me, a vein of silver

So, make 'em laugh cos' I,
Haven't got a chance cos' I,
Haven't got half the courage you have
Haven't got half the courage you have
Haven't got half the courage you have
Haven't got half the courage you have

Might as well call me posh
Might as well say that I'm not, grateful for what I've got
