From the EP 'Southernisms'
Released by Sotones June 10th 2013


Peel back the red tape before it decides your fate
Papers are only there to confuse, their headlines only give you bad news

I’m angry ‘cause I’m feeling cheated
They said that we were sure to benefit
Now leaning on my bedroom window ledge
I stare out at a sickly sunset
Patchwork pavements feed the concrete jungle
Bricks and mortar do the rest
You’d never know
What we lost

When we stopped venturing outside
When we stopped turning of the telly
When we stopped living in the real world
Because there is no guarantee that we will be happy

Communities filled with strangers
Instead of talking we google our neighbours
