I’m a schadenfreude junkie It's all about me I'm a schadenfreude junkie It's all about what I want to see The sweet taste of watching Those crumbling walls They're yours they're not mine So I don't care at all Well I know it's wrong But it feels so right In others struggles To take such delight Delicious downturns A falling from grace Delicious downturns Just puts a smile back upon my face I’m a schadenfreude junkie Paying at the gate Salivating for The cruel twist of fate Well I know it's wrong But it feels so right In others struggles To take such delight Stripped back, laid bare The side we try to hide The side we try to hide is always there I'm a Schadenfreude junkie Just like all the rest The only difference is I just confessed

I didn't believe before But now it's fair to say I do There's a place in my heart A little part I put aside for you You've given me so much more Than you take and I am thanking you There's a place in my heart A special part I put aside for you ​ To come to realise We're only ever really passing through And while we're here we might Just as well Just as well Enjoy the ride that much is true Sweetest apple of my eye Sweetest apple of my eye Forget about settling scores When no other made me think like you There's a place in my heart A little part I put aside for you I'ts rare that I'm seen to show How I feel, but when it comes to you There's a place in my heart I'm prepared to let it shine for you To come to realise We're only ever really passing through And while we're here we might Just as well Just as well Enjoy the ride that much is true Sweetest apple of my eye Sweetest apple of my eye Sweetest apple of my eye Sweetest apple of my eye

Always there for parties and stags Glue that binds together Been that way forever ​ Sordid yarns of sundry slags Holding court for hours Tales of superpowers ​ Tarred with the same brush No one thinks that you're in a rush But no one wants to be The last one left in the pub ​ Down in one to all the applause Revel in bravado You're Gorka Pintado ​ So much time on your hands to kill Idle thumbs in action Devil's found some traction ​ Tarred with the same brush No one thinks that you're in a rush But no one wants to be The last one left in the pub

Understand what you see Isn't quite what it's all cracked up to be Underhand behind the scenes We are fed what they want us to believe Where are we going? Where does it end? Race to the bottom That's where my friend They'll scratch his he'll scratch theirs In good time they'll have it all carved up in shares It's a game that you can play Entry's free except for those who cannot pay Where are we going? Where does it end? Race to the bottom That's where my friend And I just can't abide By all those lies I hear and see No I just can't abide By all those lies They're killing me Gravy trains delivering pain Stop to dump their load and soon set off again All the sheep must be blind Red top propaganda rules their hearts and minds Where are we going? Where does it end? Race to the bottom That's where my friend And I just can't abide By all those lies I hear and see No I just can't abide By all those bloody lies They're killing me

You're having a laugh and enjoying the craic Throwaway lines never meant to offend Living is easy when you got no ties now Seems Peter Pan is alive and well ​ At heavy times you run a mile You turn your back and you're gone again ​ Fairweather Friend All I want to say is that You burned your bridges Fairweather Friend All I want to say is that You burned your bridges here ​ Always the one to play the part of the jester Goofing around they're eating out of your hand But everything changes when the chips are down now You make your excuses and you're never around At heavy times you run a mile You turn your back and you're gone again ​ Fairweather Friend All I want to say is that You burned your bridges Fairweather Friend All I want to say is that You burned your bridges here Your bridges here Your bridges here

I think I found it That special place you keep inside For all the love that you never show And you never will You tried to hide it Buried deep within your heart But I found a way To get inside And to make it mine ​ Don't be afraid now I can ease your pain Breathe me in now I'll always be with you To the end I think I found it That special place you keep inside For all the ones you resent the most Whose smiles are forced You'll never tell them Just how much they let you down And the pain they caused Because they only care For the things they do ​ Don't be afraid now I can ease your pain Breathe me in now I'll always be with you To the end I think I found it That special place you keep inside For your deepest fears And all the pain that hurts the most You'll never tell me Just how hard it was to pretend That you were strong And to carry on as if nothing's wrong

It's a fucked up world we live in To serve the one percent Where all the odds are firmly in their favour And if you want to put your head up Above the parapet You are going to have to sign a waiver Everyone's too busy To try and get there first But no one seems to quite know where they're going All our heads are down Engrossed within a screen No one's ever interested in talking Turning in on ourselves We're all turning in In on ourselves Keyboard warriors shouting Shouting at a screen And disappearing into an empty void Everything is anger Or everything is smiles Middle ground dispensed with, where's the joy Turning in on ourselves We're all turning in In on ourselves The power and the glory The Doc who sets the scene Knowing they won't see the bigger picture Everyone's a cog Designed to turn the wheel Of ignorance that feeds the ugly creature Turning in on ourselves We're all turning in In on ourselves

The world it owes you nothing Why is that so hard to see? Don't waste your time in wondering why The truth will set you free I don't care for your latest scheme Save your breath why not just come clean? ​ Caught you with your pants down You knew you were bang to rights So I put you back in your box And I shut the lid down tight 'Cos you know I'm right Yeah you know I'm right ​ I don't know why you feel the need to justify to me The reasons why you're not to blame You're not convincing me I don't care if you're on the sick Save it pal it's just the same old shtick ​ Caught you with your pants down You knew you were bang to rights So I put you back in your box And I shut the lid down tight 'Cos you know I'm right Yeah you know I'm right Yeah ​ So you tell me that the world Has let you down again Why not keep your mouth shut And not treat me with disdain? I don't care if you're on your knees Back under your rock if you please ​ Caught you with your pants down You knew you were bang to rights So I put you back in your box And I shut the lid down tight 'Cos you know I'm right Yeah you know I'm right Yeah

Let down by a system Designed to help Recidivist King Exposing the flaws A born underachiever The Devil's own deceiver A master of The cloak and dagger His true intentions Remain unknown A man of dubious identity Destined to keep his liberty Now time is running out The noose has tightened A knock on the door Then confusion reigns And you realise then You've swallowed his lies Once again he's pulled the wool Over your eyes

about

An eclectic collection of acoustic melodic indie rock. As opposed to (Shade), the songs on this disc (ahh, remember those days?) are lighter in tone.

We recorded, mixed and mastered these songs entirely on an iPad Mini. Thanks for listening.
