"Hectic" as written by Roughton Reynolds, Chris Batten, Liam Rory Clewlow and Robert Rolfe....
To the multi-story car park
With our friends
Drinking from a bottle
Of white lightning

On top of marks and sparks
Roof running
Smoking
Chronic
Hectic

And it seems that
Nothing now will ever change.
And it seems that
Were on our own again

And it seems that
Nothing now will ever change.
And it seems that
Were on our own again


And it seems that
Nothing now will ever change.
And it seems that
Were on our own again

We'll convene at mine 3PM to play Sega Megadrive Golden Axe and Sonic all day
Never Played It? (I'll Teach Ya)
Can't Hack It? (I'll Beat Ya)
Whilst Pendell's making rhymes in the corner with a litre of finest Scrumpy Jack,
Whilst PDEX pumps out the latest big club track
We'll take it to Justin's and hit his King Kong
Then we'll gather round the piano for a little sing song.

Oh if I could kidnap that feeling
The one that melts all fear's from your mind
I'd make no demands, no ransom.

'Cause I'd never set it free.
'Cause I'd never set it free.

Oh if I could kidnap that feeling
The one that melts all fear's from your mind
I'd make no demands, no ransom.

'Cause I'd never set it free.
'Cause I'd never set it free.
'Cause I'd never set it free.

All false Halcyon days
And Halcyon nights
Before we began to realize
That these aren't right.

And it seems that
Nothing now will ever change.
And it seems that
Were on our own again


And it seems that
Nothing now will ever change.
And it seems that
Were on our own again


And it seems that
Nothing now will ever change.
And it seems that
Were on our own again

    General Commentthe first verse is something to do with being in a park with your friends, which fits with the reference to drinking from a puddle of white lightening because thats a popular cheap cider that a lot of kids buy cause its so cheap and its part of british youth culture getting drunk in parks.

    "and it seems like nothing now will ever change, and it seems like we're on our own again"

    the speaking bit is something to do with sega megadrive and playing sonic all day, and making rhymes in the corner with a pint of the finest scrumpy jack, and the latest big club track. so hard to understand though.

    this is definitely one of the best songs on the album though, such a great sound and the "we're o-o-on our own a-ga-ain" makes me shiver.

    General CommentYou have it wrong.

    It's:

    "To the multi story car park;
    With our friends
    Drinking from a bottle
    Of White Lightning
    ----dunno
    Smoking
    Chronic
    Hectic

    We'll convene at mine
    3PM to play
    Sega Megadrive
    Golden axe and sonic all day
    Never played it
    (I'll teach ya)
    Tried to hack it
    (I'll beat ya)
    Finest scrumpy jack
    Whilst PDEX pops out the lastest -something-
    Doing justice to the latest king kong.
    Come around the piano; for an old sing song.

    The last part of Verse 1 is hard to understand.

    General CommentSo far I got:

    [undecipherable] with my friends and drinking from a bottle of white lightning [undecipherable] roof running smoking chronic hectic

    [Chorus:]
    (And it seems that) nothing now will ever change
    (And it seems that) we're o o on our own again
    x3

    We'll convene at mine 3PM to play Sega Megadrive Golden Axe and Sonic all day
    Never Played It? (I'll Teach Ya)
    Can't Hack It? (I'll Beat Ya)
    [undecipherable] making rhymes in the corner with a litre of finest Scrumpy Jack,
    whilst PDEX bombs out the latest big club track we'll take it to Justin's and hit his King Kong and we'll gather round the piano for a little sing song

    (Oh we're back again at that feeling, the one that melts off is from your mind, I make no demands, not a ransom)
    Cause I never set it free
    Cause I never set it free
    (Oh we're back again at that feeling, the one that melts off is from your mind, I make no demands, not a ransom)
    Cause I never set it free
    Cause I never set it free
    Cause I never set it free

    All those halcyon days and halcyon nights, before we began to realise that this was right

    [Chorus:]
    (And it seems that) nothing now will ever change
    (And it seems that) we're o o on our own again
    x3

    General Comment"Whilst Pendell makes it rhyme in the corner with a litre of finest Scrumpy Jack"... not sure exactly about the rest of the line but it's 100% Pendell (friend of ES).

    And Chris's part starts with "I wish I could kidnap that feeling..."
