"Took It Away" as written by and Adam/perry Perry....
Five pretty boys for ten shitty years
Five girls next door, I'm up to my ears
I need a reaction, a new revolution
All over the country but they took it away

They took it away, It can't be impossible
They're playing the records that they play on hospital
Radio play list for the terminally ill
You can't tell they're miming when you're over the hill

And it goes on and on and on and on
If you put it like that, you'll be dead someday
Set the record straight, they took it all away

They took it away and they left us with nothing
Second hand hits and a million misses
No-body means it, they're making up stories
You gotta blame someone, you can't blame the tories
I blame myself, I want an easy life
Does it really matter, ain't worth no suicide
the bigger they come, the harder they fall
I'm kicking myself for wasting it all

And it goes on and on and on and on
If you put it like that, you'll be dead someday
Set the record straight, they took it all away

They took it away, they left us with nothing
You suffer the pain of your finger's burning

And it goes on and on and on and on
If you put it like that, you'll be dead someday
Set the record straight, they took it all away
