''If the jackhammer rhythms of 'Snakes and Social Ladders' are anything to go by then their debut, self-titled EP should turn a few heads. Lovely.'' - Rock Sound Magazine

Track Name: Snakes and Social Ladders
So that was fun, why the hell did I even come?
Just another excuse for cutting it loose, getting pissed out of your brain

I’m going home, lock the door and sit on my throne
Surrounded by last night’s pizza boxes, where only I can reign

Presiding under the covers
TV shows and games
Don’t need no others

Ode to all the vapid little fakers
Signed by the wasters
You’re keeping by your side
Oh to have a chance to take your orders
My very own disorder
I’ll think I’ll change the tide

Bought some new tunes, hope it isn’t making you fume
If I could equate the racket you make, you’d think I’d gone insane

I thought we’d get along but
Recent studies indicate that life is just a game
Track Name: Punch?
Good job my friend, congratulations
You successfully fucked the whole thing up
We scramble ‘round for consultations
Two brand new sides one pointless war

Lost, and now we’re picking up the pieces that you left for us
As you walk away I feel my anger rising up and up
So here we are now, still breaking new ground

Never been so loud
You threw it away, I bet you’re proud
But you moan and you groan so alone
But you know, we’ve long gone by

Lost all consideration
Took us for a ride, you crashed the truck
We power through the complications
Too much at stake too much to be

Lost, and now we’re picking up the pieces that you left for us
Churn out the lies it’s no surprise you’re running out of luck

It seriously seems to me
That from your actions you want the punch
Track Name: Knives In Your Eyes
Better day, so they say, bombs away
Only way, so they say, peace won’t pay

Now they’ll never take nothing from me
I won’t let them be the ones who bleed

For your prize, young will die, my oh my
Train them well, sent to hell, suicide

Now they’ll never take nothing from me
I won’t let them be the ones who bleed

Take them down a little bit faster
The world won’t get a second chance
To be the overlord the master
Of all we know you need

Bring them here, use the fear, make it clear,
Don’t delay, don’t betray, peace won't pay

Now they’ll never take nothing from me
And don’t you know that I’ll ensure to secure we will succeed

I know you’re not doing this for me
I know you think we’re pretty stupid
How far can you say that we are free
Forgetting the profit we’re on the losing side
And I know you’re the worst of all your kind
Track Name: We're Having Fun
Heard you’re back online
And that we’ve wronged you and you’d like to tell us all the
Dreadful things you find
About how we do our business, and who we like or simply won’t

So I hate to play this game with you, I wish I didn’t care
I know you know it’s all we have (why don’t you spit it out)

Proceed to push us down
(“Bet they won’t know”), but everybody knows
At-least we’re having fun
(“Way too much fun!”), we’ll still see you at the show

So each day it stays the same with you
And I know that isn’t fair
And bitterness is all you have

So keep taking drags and feeling sad in your garden
Pardoning every one but me for a laugh with your mates
And you’ll feel great (It’s great)

Keep taking drags and feeling sad in your garden
Pardoning every one but me for a laugh with your mates
And you’ll feel great til' the morning arrives and it’s getting too
Later you’ll try and toe the line and hide behind “banter” and
“Sorry boys I was just fucked”, I’m awestruck with your string of bad luck
in this area barely a reason to care in your state
Track Name: Travel Agent for Guilt Trips
Set your sights on someone else, I’m so tired
Don’t you think you’ve haunted me enough
Memories are blown away like dandelion seeds
And it’s the level of distain you seem to show that baffles me

(If you’d let me dowse the fire)
And let your demons loose
and scrabble through the ashes for the truth
There is no sinister sub plot, there is no call for war
So take the time to figure out just what you’re fighting for

You’re flying blind, with peace of mind stay composed
Designed it all so well, so you’re safe above the clouds

Our disgrace is nothing more than life, rolling as it does
The travel agent for our guilt trip soaring high above us

You’re flying blind, with peace of mind stay composed
Designed it all so well (designed it all so well), well you’re safe above the clouds

And was it easy to let me go
An easy way to keep it down
Was it that easy to let us go

All that we had behind you
(woahhh, woahhh)
You’re safe above the clouds

Set your sights on someone else, I’m so tired
Don’t you think you’ve haunted me enough?
Track Name: Optimism
I see ropes around your throat
And they tighten, and they tighten
Far away from all you knew, and I’m frightened
And I’m frightened what you’ll do

With no better options, and no running away
Was building up day by day
Will something perfectly minimal, get stuck in the way?

Hit me with a blind-side
Believe there’s nothing wrong
We can be optimistic, but only for so long
You’ve fallen by the wayside
But I’m not done

I’m breaking in
Watching over
Watching over
And I know you’re wearing thin
But I’m never, we are never giving in

You’ve got no better options, we’re not running away
We’re building up day by day
Will something perfectly minimal, get stuck in the way?

Start it over again
Find a new way
Trying to break this trend

And I’m perfectly minimal
But I’m showing the way
Track Name: The World Isn't on Your Side
The world isn’t on your side
No breaks in the natural scheme of things
Just you, you’re all alone
Up-keeping your earthly ties
Unshaken, pre-emptively clipped your wings
Tied down, and set in stone

So you can keep dismissing, I’ll say it again
Closing your doors won’t make you better men
You’re in remission, I’ll stick with it if you’d like to wake up
And let in what you’ve ignored

Started out alright, never best bros
We tried our best though, hasty we set our goals
But when the time came, you made it a war game
You we’re fixed in your congregation

So you can keep dismissing, I’ll say it again
Closing your doors won’t make you better men
You’re in remission, I’ll stick with it if you’d like to wake up
And let in what
You’re a full grown minor, a ten out of ten
No riff or chord, that you can’t comprehend
It’s not a secret the world wasn’t built around you
Wake up, and let in what you’ve ignored

You, the one who cannot move
You know that you can’t lose
Who am I to criticise…
YOU!?

The world isn’t on your side
No breaks in the natural scheme of things
Well just you, you’re all alone
Well just you, all alone
