"Suburban Knights" as written by and Richard Archer....
Suburban days, they last so long
In shop and office, we sing our song we all sing
We ain't got nothing, nothing to do
A big fat nothing, nothing for me, nothing for you

Suburban dreams, just out of reach
Work till you die, that's what they teach you at school
With that in mind, what's there to lose?
My friends and I, doped up on TV fags and booze
Hear them all singing

We're the ones that you've forgotten
But we will not be denied
Coming out of the shadows
We rock the satellites

Suburban nights, they get so hot
People get angry, we sing our song we all sing
A global terror they say, we are at war
But I ain't got time for that 'cause
These bills keep dropping through my door
Hear them all singing

We're the ones you've forgotten
Out of mind, out of sight
Coming out of the shadows
We rock the satellites

All these people who criticize us well
We're only saying what we're seeing with our own eyes
This one way system it ain't, it ain't paradise
Not everybody wants to race, wants to fight
Hear them all singing

We're the ones you've forgotten
But we will not be denied
Coming out of the shadows
We rock the satellites

We're the ones that you've forgotten
Out of mind, out of sight
Coming out of the shadows
Coming live via satellite

    isnt it kind of about working class morals and stuff

    General CommentI hope each member of this band dies painfully for their crimes to music, this is an awful song from what i've heard is an awful album by an awful band. Anyone who likes this song really must be a bit simple...

    General CommentThis song is absolutly AMAZING live. We, the crowd did a lot of the "Ayyyyyyy, ahhhhh"s and it was just a brilliant night!

    Alex_The_Red... I hope YOU die painfully for your crimes to music. I bet you sit at home listening to dodgy trance shit, My Chemical Romance or some other piece of shit.

    General CommentRichard Archer (The lead singer) said that parts of this album are autobiographical.

    He left Staines for a better life somewhere else thinking that he was getting nowhere in the dead-end town. The band that he was in turned out to be going nowhere and after his life crumbled and the death of his father, Richard returned to Staines. I feel the whole album is about this as well as Can't Get Along from the first album.

    SUBURBAN KNIGHTS: The first track, the first step: Dead end 9 to 5s in the slow suburban town of Staines.

    General CommentJust remembered, Can't Get along is on this album. Just adds to the story.
