Track Name: Oi! Used to Be a Friend of Mine
Lyrics:

Cast out into the street
With nowhere to call my home
It wasn't so long ago
I didn't feel so alone
I remember when we made the promise
To stay together 'til the end
But it wouldn't take very long
For you to find another friend

How could I have been so blind
Oi! used to be a friend of mine
No one's as good as you, I'll never find
Oi! Oi! Oi! used to be a friend of mine
And now it's gone

In the corner of my eye
I swear sometimes I see
You're standing there, lookin' at me
The way you used to look at me
I promised I'd never cry
I'd continue to be strong
But you had to up and leave
It didn't take very long

How could I have been so blind
Oi! used to be a friend of mine
No one's as good as you, I'll never find
Oi! Oi! Oi! used to be a friend of mine
And now it's gone

Now I'm standing in the rain
Thinking of how it used to be
Where did it all go wrong?
Please tell me
The rain is falling down
So you'll never see
The tears are in my eyes
When I remember you and me

How could I have been so blind
Oi! used to be a friend of mine
No one's as good as you, I'll never find
Oi! Oi! Oi! used to be a friend of mine
Oi! Oi! Oi! used to be a friend of mine
Oi! Oi! Oi! used to be a friend of mine
Oi! Oi! Oi! used to be a friend of mine
And now it's gone
Track Name: 'Til the Walls Come Down
Lyrics:

We are the wave of the future, but in love with the past
Did you really think punk rock wouldn't last?
We may fade away, but rock and roll is here to stay
Load it up, take it out, set it all up
Yeah, rock this joint 'til the walls come down

Burn that bridge when it's time to cross
Pedal to the metal, and I feel real boss
10:30 gig on a Saturday night
10:30 gig and I feel alright
We're gonna load it up, take it out, set it all up
Yeah, rock this joint 'til the walls come down

Club owner says it's time to go
PA man, he wanna steal my show
I grab another beer, I give it a chug
I say, "Come over here if you wanna pull my plug"

Burn that bridge down to the ground
There's the door if you don't like this sound
You'll all fade away, but punk rock is here to stay
Load it up, take it out, set it all up
Yeah, rock this joint 'til the walls come down

We are the wave of the future, but in love with the past
Did you really think our music wouldn't last?
You'll all fade away, but Oi! Oi! Oi! is here to stay
Load it up, take it out, set it all up
Yeah, rock this joint 'til the walls come down
