THE CONCRETE WE'RE TRAPPED WITHIN

The Concrete We're Trapped Within (It's Yours) (P.Barnes)

IT’S YOURS! And that’s the only thing you gotta know
We share the planet so
It’s up and out there for the taking
We don’t need the key we’ll break in
They paint it out like something new but this ain’t no mystery
It just had different names throughout the passage of history
When common people congregate to dance off their misery
Cos civil disobedience a part of democracy

It doesn’t matter what the headline say
We know the story at the end of the day
Who are the people that this land and sea belong to anyway?

IT’S YOURS! And that’s the only thing you need to know
We share the planet so
It’s up and out there for the taking
We don’t need the key we’ll break in

OK, let me explain the game they’re playin
Their aim; keep us remaining on the same
Food chain, inside their sinking economy
So they don’t want no kids who show the signs of autonomy.
So don’t believe the hype it’s not the news of world it’s in
Forget about the techno and the punx and the ketamine
And think of how the freedom of the land we’re settled in
Is nowt without the reclaiming all the concrete we’re trapped within

It doesn’t matter what the headline say
We know the story at the end of the day
Who are the people that this land and sea Belong to anyway?

IT’S YOURS! And that’s the only thing you need to know
We share the planet so
It’s up and out there for the taking
We don’t need the key we’ll break in
IT’S YOURS! As long as we’re not harming anyone
Well then the parties on
Rip the mic, Rip the stage, Rip the system
I was born to rage against them

It doesn’t matter what the headline say
We know the story at the end of the day
Who are the people that this land and sea
Belong to anyway?

IT’S YOURS! And that’s the only thing you need to know
We share the planet so
It’s up and out there for the taking
We don’t need the key we’ll break in

IT’S YOURS! As long as we’re not harming anyone
Well then the parties on!
Rip the mic, Rip the stage, Rip the system
Rip the mic, Rip the stage, Rip the system



Nine Stitches (B.Childs)

BRUCK UP Coral turn to dust in the acid
BRUCK UP Choke on the smoke and the gasses
BRUCK UP Life disappear from the planet
BRUCK UP Soon to be worldwide panic

BRUCK UP Coral turn to dust in the acid
BRUCK UP Choke on the smoke and the gasses
BRUCK UP Life disappear from the planet
BRUCK UP Say now we got nowhere to run, evolution a game over,

Bucky Fuller dreamed, had a vision
Maybe we could change our ways on our mission
People nodded in approval but didn't change, didn't listen
Some say it's gone too far for revision, some say it’s game over.

Seas start to sink all our cities
Black water is empty of fishes
Take a look at the land, it's turning to sand and raped of its riches
The planet she need more than nice stitches, I tell you man she's...

BRUCK UP Why you sleep so sound, why so passive when it's
BRUCK UP Calling on my worldwide massive
BRUCK UP Life disappear from the planet
BRUCK UP Say now we got nowhere to run, evolution a game over

Is this the seventh mass extinction?
Humans gift to the world; it's distinction
Let's make our legacy be more than destruction
Cynical self-serving corruption

Let's not play for GAME OVER
Some say you can't fight the tide
Such pessimism will not help us survive
Yeah we're gonna go down if we just carry on riding blind,
So face up to the truth before our eyes, we broke it up it's game over

Lovelock spoke of our Gaia getting tired
Fragile ecosystem trying to survive
Because of humanity consuming with the force of a fire
The silence bring our funeral pyre, I tell you man she's...

BRUCK UP Mother Nature getting battered
BRUCK UP Do we have a chance to go back on this
BRUCK UP Come on let's evolve to combat it
BRUCK UP Say now we got nowhere to run, evolution a game over.



This is Real (P.Barnes)

We never said that we’d start a revolution
We never claimed to be anything but ourselves
We never said that we’d found some world solution
We only asked for a space upon the shelves

It’s so, it’s so, it’s so black and white
We never were on the same page anyway
It’s so, it’s so, it’s so thick to fight
So just fade away

This is the sound we make
The choice we take
Its no mistake
(It can’t be faked)
So what’s the point just call it what you want
(Just know this is real)

Now we’re caught in the web of weekend writers
(We never were on the same page anyway)
Better bet that the knives are out this year
(Just know this is real)
I’ve a hunch they’re a bunch of paper tigers
(You know I thought that we could take them any day)
In the cage I can count the stripes from here
(It’s just how I feel)

It’s so, it’s so, it’s so black and white
We never were on the same page anyway
It’s so, it’s so, it’s so thick to fight
So just fade away

This is the sound we make
The choice we take
Its no mistake
(It can’t be fake)
So what’s the point just call it what you want
(Just know this is real)

This is the sound we make
The choice we take
Its no mistake
(It can’t be fake)
So what’s the point just call it what you want
(Just know this is real)

What does a boy have to carve on his arm to make a mark that you would not contend?
No pot of paint big enough for the picture I could draw to make you comprehend.
It takes the guts of the brave and the bold to shun the calling of the passing trend.
If that’s what’s real then let me pretend

We never said that we’d start the revolution
(We never were on the same page anyway)
But you never gonna blow the buzz I feel
(Just know this is real)

This is the sound we make
The choice we take
Its no mistake
(It can’t be fake)
So what’s the point just call it what you want
(Just know this is real)

This is the sound we make
The choice we take
Its no mistake
(It can’t be fake)
So what’s the point just call it what you want
(Just know this is real)



BACK 2 SKOOL

Back 2 Skool (P.Barnes)

Who is the kid with the coolest trainers on?
Who’s getting ripped cos they got the label wrong?
Who said that he said that she was a slag
because she kissed with the boy on the bike and tongues’ll wag?
Who’s keeping up with the kid that got the tag?

I’m waiting for the bell again.
Well but you’re not it, yeah but you want it, tick and you got it.
Running to keep up again.
Well but you’re not it, yeah but you want it, tick and you got it.
Catch them once.

Now I’m singing the sound of all these songs upon the radio,
and now I’m laughing aloud at how the kids can be so cruel
and now I’m stifling down my screams
and shattered dreams to make the team,
I guess I’m back at school.

Who read the part of the picture book
where they swear they don’t care what you wear or how you look?
Down in the playground they’re dressed like lady muck.
Who pissed on the girl in the back of the tour bus?
Back in the disco they sing to the chorus!

It’s gonna be a party, what you gonna wear?
Everyone’ll be there, life just isn’t fair.

Sent out with the boys and the girls in the big wide world
and well I took a look and found my way underground.
And soon I knew you never leave the playground.
Catch them once. Catch them twice.
Catch them three times. Never gonna get them in the end.



The Dangers of Rock n Roll (P.Barnes / B.Childs)

Man it makes me so mad when
Some of them come and they want to buy me
Want me finished with the music by 9:30
So they pay the DJ, make the money
And it's a shame, what's the name of the game,
Who's to blame?
Some of them people just don't understand
The bang bang from the 'band man' plan to see it banned,
Stand branded and bland across the main land.
The grandmaster plan, wanna be Ichiban!
If you have to ask oh well you will never know
Don't like the music if you like the music low
Try to hold me down, you just wind me up to go
Can't stop the sound, one thing you can't, no!

You can try but you'll never deny our voice.
You can lie, but you'll never deny a noise.

Well I guess that the best I can say for the quest
Of the Government pest to rebrand every fest
With a corporate quest, is it's easy to guess
Where the lager's like piss and the sound I'll detest.
And I jest, nonetheless, I confess that I'm vexed
Cos the rest manifest in that sounds are opressed
Like the right to protest.
"Put down your banjo, you're under arrest'.
It's just another way to squash defiance
And blame it on the sound of music causing violence.
Bullshit! Fuck this, join the Rebel Alliance,
And turn up to eleven if you won't be silenced.

You can try but you'll never deny our voice.
You can lie, but you'll never deny a noise.

I don't know but I've been told, all about the dangers of Rock n Roll.



Floating Away (Acoustic) (B.Childs / P.Barnes)

The baby won’t stop screaming
There are holes in the ceiling
We’re all running on empty
All I can think about is leaving

The lift’s beyond repair,
Screw faces, head down, take the stairs
And soon I’m gonna be floating away
Do you remember you used to say

What’ll it be like when we get older?
We can be far away from here
We’re going to the moon my dear
I see the spaceman over my shoulder
Wave to earth and disappear
He’s floating away
Floating away

I got a job in a kitchen
Till I got sick of their bitching
Future seemed like fiction
I’m on an intergalactic mission

But back on earth the time ticked on
I looked around and wondered where had my spaceman gone?
Like all those promises of childhood
If I could find a way to keep them like I should
You know I would, instead of floating away every time I could

What’ll it be like when we get older?
We can be far away from here
We’re going to the moon my dear
I see the spaceman over my shoulder
Wave to earth and disappear
I can’t breathe at this atmosphere
Is it just me or did it get colder?
We can be far away from here
Here, here, here, here

The baby stopped it’s screaming
Am I awake or dreaming?
The time is different up here
And even though you’re gone I feel you near

And so for what it’s worth
there’s really nothing left for me down on earth
I didn’t even notice you went away
But I remember you used to say

What’ll it be like when we get older?
We can be far away from here
We’re going to the moon my dear
I see the spaceman over my shoulder
Wave to earth and disappear
If I could have one more chance to just hold her
I reckon I could face this fear
I can’t breathe at this atmosphere
Is it just me or did it get colder?
Lying alone it's all so clear
And from up here
I love how tiny everything down there appears

Floating away
Floating away

New Style Rocka (feat. Tonn Piper) (P.Barnes / A.Saunders)

(Tonn Piper) Prepare yourself! This is the New Style Rocka, Sonic Boom Six featuring Tonn Piper, let’s do this people. Oh my God!

(Barney) Down the club things a changed alright, It’s a mighty different game
All the kids got the different clothes but they hang out just the same
Start at the night onna different sides like they’re on the brink of war
Give it an hour and few drinks down and they’re walking to the floor

Cos when the bassline hit it’s neither here nor there
It’s the place you’re at and not the clothes you wear

Get the dancefloor chocka
This a new style rocker
Like a culture shock up side de head.
HEY HEY!

This a one love mission
With a mashed-up vision
This a culture shock upside de head!
HEY HEY!

(Laila) Indie kid well she look so good, but she’s scared to break a nail
All the rudegirls refuse to dance, until the rudeboys outta jail
There’s a mosher with’a dreadlocks sat drinking snakebite by the bar
My raver sister gonna move alright but she’s been well-behaved so far…

But then bassline hit and all the crowd unite
It’s how the world could be and how it is tonight

Get the dancefloor chocka
This a new style rocker
Like a culture shock up side de head.
HEY HEY!

This a one love mission
With a mashed-up vision
This a culture shock upside de head!
HEY HEY!

(Tonn) This one for the black and the white
Time to unite, get caught up in the hype
Leave all baggage at the front door
Step inside get on the dancefloor
Get ready for the New Style Rocka
Piper a'di riddim hopper
Guaranteed to make you move proper
Make you body sweat as the mic gets hotter
Burn up the lights all dancehall wrecker
Junglist, dubstepper, punk rockers,
Moshpit fighters, indie-heads, mods and the bikers,
Jump up, wanna get a with the vibe
Skank out, side by side
Hold up your hand, keep your hand high
New Style Rockas unified!

Cos when the bassline hit it’s neither here nor there
It’s just the place you’re at and not the clothes you wear

So get the dancefloor chocka
This a new style rocker
Like a culture shock up side de head.

With a mashed-up vision

This a new style rocker
Like a culture shock up side de head.
HEY HEY!

This a one love mission
With a mashed-up vision
This a culture shock upside de head!
HEY HEY!



What Doesn't Kill You Make You Stronger (P.Barnes)

What doesn’t Kill you Make you stronger
Try before you knock it
What doesn’t kill you make you stronger
This is how we rock it

This is my life in a sound
Come gather round
Let me tell a story that begin underground
On a stage in a rough bit of town
Can’t believe all the love that I found

SB6, Started out as a mad little plan
And now I’ve been around the world in a van
Forever bigger and better for me and my rebels together
Never really thought about the distance we’ve ran

What I mean, a lot of people never been the places I’ve been man,
We might have never been the teens on the scene with our faces up in Kerrang! magazine,
but the deal is the latest trend, round the bend
Picking up a whole lot of fair-weather friends
But they’re dust if they jump off the bus when the buzz and the hype all end

That’s how it is…
But when you dance to the beat of your own drum
Be prepared to stick out like a sore thumb
And you’re gonna get a belly full of shit thrown your way
Each day! true say!,
Sounds cliché that’s the price you pay learn to lift it rudeboy
You gotta learn to live with it, turn and give from it and know it when the crowd make noise

What doesn’t Kill you Make you stronger
Try before you knock it
What doesn’t kill you make you stronger
This is how we rock it

Never be a number on the cool list
Din’t get in this for the business
Couldn’t give a shit for the network bit or the guestlist VIPs
Cos those megastars rile me

They must be kings of something alright, too right
Cos they want the lot
Clear out the backstage we’re on the main stage
If that’s cool then I’m glad we’re not!
Talk’ cheap but I tell you what, you can say what you want man take your best shot
But we were buzzing at how far we’d got
While they were hiding with a bodyguard like they’ll get shot

So consider this a thank you
To the kids at the gigs in a field or a venue
That come and see us every time that we pass through
That’s number one to me.

SB6 started out as a mad little plan and it seems like yesterday
And now we drive in a much better van but the attitude still the same
So we say fuck the setbacks they don’t mean shit, everything you get you gotta work hard for it
Till the Sunlight Come don’t quit
I wouldn’t change a bit

What doesn’t kill ya…
What doesn’t Kill you Make you stronger
Try before you knock it
What doesn’t kill you make you stronger
This is how we rock it

What doesn’t Kill you Make you stronger
Try before you knock it
What doesn’t kill you make you stronger
This is how we rock it

People always talk about, a world where dreams come true
Some they choose to stay in bed and wait all their life for them to.
I went from being an angry kid, to understanding, god forbid,
It’s best regret the things you did, than all the things you did not do.



SUNNY SIDE OF THE STREET

Sunny Side of the Street

On my street,
There is a man who stands
Alone with open hands
And it brings me down

He say
He’ll kick the stuff one day
Social took him away
But he’s back around

I don’t want to live round here say no more
I’m sure, you probably thought it before
Oh but I don’t want to live round here say no more
I’m sure, living in the city, well you know the score

And we all would like a life without no fuss, no fight
Counting pennies in your twenties on a Saturday night
But don’t you worry bout the money, it’ll be alright oh yeah…

Cos even if we gotta struggle just to make ends meet
When we’re standing in the shadows of the cold concrete
We can always pop our collar up and shuffle our feet
To the sunny side of the street

In my school
There was a girl who’d say
‘I’ll be a star one day’
And it made me smile

Last night
They had to break her door
And found her on the floor
She’d been there a while

I don’t want to live round here say no more
I’m sure, you probably thought it before
Oh but I don’t want to live round here say no more
I’m sure, living in the city, well you know the score

And we all would like a life without no fuss, no fight
Counting pennies in your twenties on a Saturday night
But don’t you worry bout the money, it’ll be alright oh yeah…

Cos even if we gotta struggle just to make ends meet
When we’re standing in the shadows of the cold concrete
We can always pop our collar up and shuffle our feet
To the sunny side of the street

Yeah we all would like a life without the stress and debts
Without the pissheads and the buses and the launderettes
But the grass is always greener on the next man’s lawn
And if we had a million quid we’d only piss it up the wall
So, forget the having all the best of what they make
And make the best of you do have
And leave the rest to fate.
And if you’re Bonnie, you can call me Clyde
And we can stride to the sunny side, yeah

And we all would like a life without no fuss, no fight
Counting pennies in your twenties on a Saturday night
But don’t you worry bout the money, it’ll be alright oh yeah…

Cos even if we gotta struggle just to make ends meet
When we’re standing in the shadows of the cold concrete
We can always pop our collar and a shuffle our feet
To the sunny side of the street



FOR THE KIDS OF THE MULTICULTURE

For the Kids of the Multiculture (P.Barnes)

Get your hands up
If you’re proud to be living in a land where we
Take a chance to build a future
For the kids of the multiculture

Well let me tell you
When I look out on the street in the town where I live
I feel lucky to be living in a town that’s mixed
There’s European, Caribbean every flavour in between
From the shops to the mosque to the cuisine
Reggae posters in Polish grocers,
Getting on together like chips and samosas
This ain’t segregation, they hope us
Turn against each other to sidetrack the voters

This is an evolution
This is a world that we shape
This is a contribution
To calling Britain Great

Get your hands up
If you’re proud to be living in a land where we
Take a chance to build a future
For the kids of the multiculture

Time to stand-up
If you’re ready for a battle for the life we lead
Let the sirens nee-nah nee-nah
For the kids of the multiculture

And to be honest I can see why the screams of spiteful extremists
Pissing on the chips of the silent majority
But don’t pretend that 30 extremists represent two million that’s silly when on the same day
The fascists march away, but all our leader want to talk about the decay of the British way
What can that be except for Christianity? I’m sorry Mr Cameron, that look the same to me

This is an evolution
This is a world that we shape
This is a contribution
To calling Britain Great

Get your hands up
If you’re proud to be living in a land where we
Take a chance to build a future
For the kids of the multiculture

Time to stand-up
If you’re ready for a battle for the life we lead
Let the sirens nee-nah nee-nah
For the kids of the multiculture

They won’t divide us
Cos what define us
Is what’s inside us
Wait and see

Take a chance to build a future
Together
This was meant to be

Live as one but be who we are
Together
This was meant to be

This was meant to be
This was meant to be
This was meant to be
We were meant to be
Together

Get your hands up
If you’re proud to be living in a land where we
Take a chance to build a future
For the kids of the multiculture

Time to stand-up
If you’re ready for a battle for the life we lead
Let the sirens nee-nah nee-nah
For the kids of the multiculture

For the kids of the multiculture
For the kids of the multiculture
For the kids of the multiculture
For the kids of the multiculture



Five Minutes With You
(P.Barnes)

Just because you’re innocent
It doesn’t make me guilty
Just because it’s what you want
It’s not the way it should be
It’s not the way it should be
This ain’t the way it should be
Just because you’re innocent

In a moment of weakness I might wonder bout the
Life that you live day to day and would the spite and vicious
Things you tap on keys to say
Ever slip out of your mouth?
If’ I was standing about
Somehow I doubt it

There’s a big and nasty world out there
So don’t reject it, it's OK to be confused and scared
Log off your blog and hold me
I fee you tremble at such
A little touch
And I worry
The lady doth protest too much

Give me just five minutes with you
And I’ll tell what you what is lies and what is the truth
Don’t make me spell it out
Easy to say, hard to do
And I can show give me just five minutes with you

I wonder if you’ve got real friends
It seems an angry boy that wishes that my life would end.
Are you a lonely soldier?
Are you just hungry for love
Tumblr’s a powerful drug
Turn off and give me a hug
We’ll talk it over

Give me just five minutes with you
And I’ll tell what you what is lies and what is the truth
Don’t make me spell it out
Easy to say, hard to do
And I can show you given just five minutes with you

So give me just five minutes with you
And we can talk about
How scared you are to go out
Do you dream about me?
Sit back and soak up the view that
I can show you given just five minutes with you

Just because you’re innocent
It doesn’t make me guilty
Just because it’s what you want
It’s not the way it should be
It’s not the way it should be
This ain’t the way it should be
Just because you’re innocent

Give me just five minutes with you
And I’ll tell what you what is lies and what is the truth
Don’t make me spell it out
Easy to say, hard to do
And I can show you given just five minutes with you

So give me just five minutes with you
When we can talk about
How scared you are to go out
Do you dream about me?
Sit back and soak up the view that
I can show you given just five minutes with you
