Track Name: Tourettes ft Matthew Crawly, Rodi Kirk, Kate Elliott - No Future
I was born in the 70s
in the middle of riot learnt to walk in the fire
my mother said that the enemy
was in the televsion and she threw it out the window – yeah!
It was the sale of the century
they sold off our country we still went to bed hungry
now these streets are cementry for all of my memorys
a diffrent time before you heard me sing

whos life is this , whos words are these
whos side we on wont you tell me please
theres no furture in this
theres no future in this
but it hurts so good – that I want to live

I joined the army at 17
I got a bottle of pills and written orders to kill
I said – I dont know what this means
but im ready to die show me where do I sign
I liked been part of a team
revloution and music yeah I know it sounds stupid
now – when I wake it seems like it was all just a dream
I burn it down and then I start to screm

Whos blood is this whos hands are these
who set this fire wont you tell me please
theres no future in this
theres no future in this
but it hurts so good that I want to live

I was famous in a past life
confessed it all beneath the stage lights
walked naked in the day time
I was brave as flame
I used to think that I would save lives
got distracted in the mean time
woke up with a real life
pretending I was sane – hey

I got married at 31
to a surreal killer in a falling down villa
she said we gonna have us some fun
then went out at night and we took us some lives
we came home covered in blood
then we drank until morning and it never got boring
I think I was really in love one day sober up
looked around and everything was gone

whos time is this who years are these
whos broken hearts litter the ground like leaves
theres no future in this
theres no future in this
but it hurts so good that I want to live
