GREAT ADVENTURE CIGAR

 
 
1) Enemy Lines

It happened once before
We're conveying a message that you choose to ignore
You try to trivialise
Hesitate, sedate but you never analyse
Rebellion customise
You say we're irrelevant, total insignificant
If we're so fuckin' full of shit
Then how come it feels so right?

I've found my way, found my way, through enemy lines
I’ve found my way, found my way, through enemy lines

You fail to understand
Downgrade our struggle what's-a-happening man?
You're shouting stay on the line
Monkey see, monkey do, monkey's never going to
Irrelevant you are
Well no one learned anything from your rules
Punk taught me expression to question fashion
To be what I am and not to bow to oppression

I've found my way, so fuck you! Found my way, through enemy lines
I’ve found my way, found my way, through enemy lines
Found my way, found my way, through enemy lines
Found my way, found my way, through enemy lines


No I won't be shot down
Some common sense I’ve realised in time I’ve found my way
My way through enemy lines, my way through enemy

It happened once before
We're conveying a message that you choose to ignore
You try to trivialise
Hesitate, sedate but you never analyse
Rebellion customise
You say we're irrelevant, total insignificant
If we're so fuckin' full of shit
Then how come it feels so right?

I've found my way, found my way, through enemy lines
Found my way, found my way, through enemy lines
Found my way, found my way, through enemy lines
Found my way, found my way, through enemy lines

2) Panic Attack

So goodbye to innocence
Purity makes little sense
All the books we read they lead this way
As we grow they grow with fear
Stronger generations here
One that leads the old worn truths away

Panic attack as the child answers back to you
Reach for the belt and you find it getting used on you
Panic attack as today you're learning something new
Ridiculous to think you're not to blame

Don't ask me what holds you back
Expectations right on track
Hope you think it through and through again
Keep on staring in my face
Don't expect my fall from grace
I don't need respect from you my friend

Panic attack as the child answers back to you
Reach for the belt and you find it getting used on you
Panic attack as today you're learning something new
Ridiculous to think you're not to blame

Panic attack as the child answers back to you
Reach for the belt and you find it getting used on you
Panic attack as today you're learning something new
Ridiculous to think you're not to blame
Ridiculous to think you're not to blame
Ridiculous to think you're not to blame
Ridiculous to think you're not to blame

3) Every Little Thing Counts

I'm too out there to be in here all the time
Doesn't mean that I don't wanna stay
Anybody can get caught with there guard down
Doesn't mean that I don't feel the same

It's so hard, it's so hard to stay alive
When there's no room to breath
And you stay alive, you stay alive
Every little thing counts
Every little thing counts
Every little thing counts
That’s why every little thing counts
Every little thing counts
Every little thing counts


When there's confusion and I know just what I want
I'm gonna take it easily
Never promised you that your dreams were heaven made
You turn your back, turn your back on me

It's so hard, it's so hard to stay alive
When there's no room to breathe
And you stay alive, you stay alive
Every little thing counts
Every little thing counts
Every little thing counts
That’s why every little thing counts
Every little thing counts
Every little thing counts


Whoo yeah (a lot!)

Every little thing counts
Every little thing counts
Every little thing counts
That’s why every little thing counts
Every little thing counts
Every little thing counts

Every little thing counts
Every little thing counts
Every little thing counts
That’s why every little thing counts
Every little thing counts
Every little thing counts


4) Floyd (What Are You On?)

Take that jacket off your back cos I don't like what I see
You've associated us with a suspect company
Advertising tools, you may as well be one yourself
We might as well have politicians wear our name as well

Do you me to spell it out
Casualty, ultimately, nailed as a tragedy
Floyd, what are you on there Floyd?
Floyd, what are you on there Floyd?
Floyd, what are you on there Floyd?
Floyd, what are you on there Floyd?

I took a look beneath the bonnet and I found the engine shot
You were following the novel and completely lost the plot
So turn it up and sing along I couldn't see if nothing's wrong
C.o.n.t.r.o.l well you're under it yourself, yeah
C.o.n.t.r.o.l well you're under it yourself, yeah

Do you me to spell it out
Casualty, ultimately, nailed as tragedy
This is a means to end my friend
And I’m telling you this now, cos you used to be my friend
Floyd, what are you on there Floyd? (a lot!)
I can see you crawling away with yourself (a lot!)

5) Dynamo

I watch the voltage meter firing up into six figures, dynamo
Looking for reaction, steering out in all directions, dynamo
I hear your voice, it brings me back, reminding me of what you lack
The quality of life is cast, so I ain’t growing up too fast

Crowds of bulging eyes, watch the meter rise
Watch the meter rise
Crowds of bulging eyes, as the feeling dies
Watch the meter rise

The central line train terminates, a bomb blast comes evacuate, dynamo
Play for yourself, play for your pride, if nothing else play for your kind, dynamo

Crowds of bulging eyes, watch the meter rise
Watch the meter rise
Crowds of bulging eyes, as the feeling dies
Watch the meter rise

Ten thousand watts each system, and it's rising in momentum
I can see that you need saving, all your circuits need upgrading
All the Mr. Smiths and Mr. Jones, no one needs another one
No one needs another one, no one needs another one

Crowds of bulging eyes, watch the meter rise
Watch the meter rise
Crowds of bulging eyes, as the feeling dies
Watch the meter rise

Let me be whatever I want, you really don't know me
I can't hide my shadowy mind from people around me
Let me do what I like whenever I want to
I can't hide my shadowy mind

6) White Man Speak with Fork Tongue

Fasten your seatbelts, pick your sides
Before you take off on words that you take for a ride
You'll find an audience for your masterpiece
But we've reached the point where you can't pretend to me
He wants to integrate, he wants to regulate, he wants to hesitate

White man speak with fork tongue
He's always right, even when he's wrong, sedative calm
So you go along with overblown lies, white man, white man speaking

You'll keep on twisting when the backlash arrives
They'll book a ticket for you're interceptor ride
Elastic words you can stretch the truth
But they grow so thin so easy to see through
He wants to integrate, he wants to regulate, he wants to hesitate

White man speak with fork tongue
He's always right, even when he's wrong, sedative calm
So you go along with overblown lies, white man, white man speaking

White man speak with fork tongue
He's always right, even when he's wrong, sedative calm
So you go along with overblown lies, white man, white man speaking
White man speak with fork tongue
He's always right, even when he's wrong, sedative calm
So you go along with overblown lies, white man, white man speaking

7) Clique

Clique, we've got our own clique
Now we're the kings of the common street
We've got our own clique

The crowd appears in a purple haze
All the hairstyles are on parade
Secret handshakes are always kept discreet
The walls are dripping with soap and sweat
Beer and vodka stains the carpet
Asthma victims are whitening from the heat

Now it's time, I’ve reached my cut off point
So I’ll crawl up the stairs
See in your eyes-a-blazing in the morning
I know they will still be there
Clique, we've got our own clique
Now we're the kings of the common street
We've got our own clique
So damaged and depraved, unable to be saved
This is heaven that we've made

Too much smoking and too much drink
So much fun that you dare not blink
The sleeping will always get their eyebrows shaved
Clique in, clique out, do you want to be accepted in our crowd
Pass the initiation in one week

Now it's time, I’ve reached my cut off point
So I’ll crawl up the stairs
See in your eyes-a-blazing in the morning
I know they will still be there
Clique, we've got our own clique
Now we're the kings of the common street
We've got our own clique

Initiate, initiate, initiate
Initiate you've got your foot inside my door

Clique, we've got our own clique
Now we're the kings of the common street
We've got our own clique
So damaged and depraved, unable to be saved
This is heaven that we've made
We've got our own clique (a lot!)

8) New Slant on Nothing

I told you about the enemy lines
You've gotta read through every passage
Self-infliction is a state of mind
I start to smile but cry instead

Tell me how you get your kicks
You watch me growing up in public
I'm in a freeze while you get a fix
You wanna know what gives in Essex

Ten thousand people at my side of the stage
Tuning in to interference
The machine that will always rage
I follow all my gut reactions
And because the world goes round
You move in circles lower than low
You've got the right to cover ground
You've got the right? Friend, I don't think so!

You give me a new slant on nothing
You give me a new slant
You give me a new slant on nothing
You give me a new slant

You give me a new slant on nothing
You give me a new slant
You give me a new slant on nothing
You give me a new slant

9) 200 Duty Frees

She hates her boss, nails him to a cross
Plans to be self employed, rather be crucified than compromise
She draws the line, for the 21st time
Another champagne cork, another night of talk

And they look ahead, as they talk all night
And it’s worth the same
As when you turned around and ask from me 200 duty free Marlborough lights
As when you turned around and ask from me 200 duty free Marlborough lights
As when you turned around and ask from me 200 duty frees


He wakes at six and washes his bits
Pays the extra travels second class
Reads the paper till the kings cross
And all day long, he's thinking wrongs
Back at home 7.45, with super Nintendo eyes

And they look ahead, as they talk all night
And it’s worth the same
As when you turned around and ask from me 200 duty free Marlborough lights
As when you turned around and ask from me 200 duty free Marlborough lights
As when you turned around and ask from me 200 duty frees


They punish each other for the GBH to their ears
And it's 100 lines, and a 50 fine
A 50's fine, a fifty's fine, a fifty's fine

And they look ahead, as they talk all night
And it means the same
As when you turned around and ask from me 200 duty free Marlborough lights
As when you turned around and ask from me 200 duty free Marlborough lights
As when you turned around and ask from me 200 duty frees
As when you turned around and ask from me 200 duty frees


10) Barriers

Standing in the crowd, my voice is drowned by all the sound of mass confusion
Words may be exchanged they're not the same, I feel the sense of disillusion
In a state of some emergency, I don't know who I can believe
There's headlines screamin' out their tales of death

So come on and break down the lines
Caused by men with money minds
Can't you read the danger signs again

Thoughts propel me fast become the master, and relaxings non-existent
My heart feels fit to burst and instincts worsening
And safety feels so distant
There is no time to look around, survival must rely on sound
Insure my feet stay on the ground again

So come on and break down the lines
Caused by men with money minds
Can't you read the danger signs again

Barriers, they're building up those barriers
Barriers in between
I've never seen so many barriers
Making me live in misery

Through this false disguise what purpose lies
In pulling wool over my vision
Perhaps I’ll be confused and hail abuse
At what we call fatal decision
There is no time to look around, survival must rely on sound
Insure my feet stay on the ground again


So come on and break down the lines
Caused by men with money minds
Can't you read the danger signs again

Barriers, they're building up those barriers
Barriers in between
I've never seen so many barriers
Making me live in misery, making me live

Keep hiding my face, turning my back
But I cannot mask who I am
The thoughts that have built up are tumbling back
And reminding me of who I am
Faced with the real me you take back your hand
Between us you build a brick wall
This disease is spreading throughout the land
Causing our friendships to fall, fall, fall, fall, fall

Barriers, they're building up those barriers
Barriers in between
I've never seen so many barriers
Making me live in misery

Barriers!
Barriers!
