Track Name: Survival of The Real
We will never be the same
Don’t pretend that we're the same
Don’t try and act the way we do
Go jump on another trend
Can’t wait to see the back of you
Survival of the real
Track Name: Strength Above All
A working class kid
Parents did the best they could
Teachers didn’t get paid enough to give a fuck
Blamed his mistakes, on something else
Youth passed him by, left by himself
24 years with fuck all to show for it
Never listened to anyone, didn’t have the time for it
He always knew best, it’s the only thing he did
Trapped inside the man is the same ignorant kid
Time for change
Born with backs to the wall
Expected to waste this life
Strength above all
Won’t go down without a fight
Track Name: Out From The Start
Turned your back on what you said
All the words you speak they don’t mean shit
We wanted out of those dead end towns
Then why the fuck are you still there now?
Out from the start
Surround yourself with what you hate
So much that you have become that way

Walk away, walk away, after every step, every day.
So much time wasted on what?
A chance you didn’t take
Settle for the same old state you claimed to hate
Breath of fresh air spat out for the same old bitter taste

Talk the fucking talk but the meaning wasn’t there
Look me in the eyes and tell me that you really cared
All the things you said they didn’t come from the heart
It was plain to see that you were out from the start
Track Name: Dare to Live
Trapped inside your own head thinking about trying to play it safe
Never taking the chances that could make your life better than it is today.
Dare to live; I know it’s hard to see the better parts when you're pushed under
Dare to live; Cos if you do, you will find a better you and all because you went out and dared to live
You’ve gotta take the leap to find yourself
And when you do, you better fight like hell
Because the world will try and take that from you
But just remember what you gotta do
Won’t follow the masses
I’ll choose for myself
Die with a smile on my face
Because I dare to live
Track Name: Get Me Out
40 hours a week I spend sat behind a desk
Feel like I’m losing the plot, is this the way I’m supposed to live?
And I don’t know what to do, but I gotta make a change
Cos I’m going crazy man, driving me insane
Same old shit everyday
Get me out before I break
Same old shit I just can’t take
Get me out before I break
And I don’t know what worse between the lies and the truth
They pay the least they can, but take the most out of you
Leave you physically, emotionally, and mentally drained
It makes me wanna go and put a bullet in my brain
Track Name: Forged In Iron
Back when I was a kid didn’t know where to turn
Life’s hard lessons that I refuse to learn
So I turned to the drink
Couldn’t bare to think about the mess that I called family
Tried to drink away the pain
To help me cope with darker days
What I didn’t realise
It was just building up inside
For years I was lost
No helping hand in sight
Couldn’t even tell left from right
Confused and alone
I had a choice of live or die
With all the air my lungs I screamed life
I swore to never drink again
And always try for better days
It’s only now I realise
The straight edge saved my life
I speak on behalf of my own generation
The kids are sick and there is no medication
Left to fend for ourselves, and find that glimmer of hope
With an X on my hand I’ll rid my neck of the rope
I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again
Forged in Iron, Set in Stone
Til the end
