about

Red Rag Front's second EP. This marks the first official recording with Drew McLaughlin joining on Vocals and Guitar.

Track Name: Dead Cats
Pre Verse:
What did I do to make you love me,
I don’t know but I’m fucking glad it worked
I don’t know what the future holds
But I’m motherfucking glad you’re gonna be there.
Verse 1:
Is it the way I dress, sleeveless band shirt and holes in my jeans,
Is it my sense of humour laughing at a dead cat in the street
Whatever made it happen I guess I’ll never understand
But just know I’m grateful to be the one to hold your hand,
Hold your hand.
Verse 2:
Would you still feel this way even if you saw my inner mind,
Would you still rip my clothes off, show me heaven, leaving me begging more,
Whatever made it happen guess I’ll never really understand
But just know I’m grateful to be the one to hold your hand
Hold your hand
Verse 3:
Am I an idiot, not realising my own self value yeah?
But would you love me then, when I’m strutting like a cockerel
Whatever made it happen guess I’ll never really understand
But just know I’m grateful to be the one to hold your hand
Hold your hand
Track Name: Song For You
Verse 1:
Throughout our lives we make some small missteps
But I know when I live mine I’ll never have another regret,
Every move we make, it makes us who we are,
And I know just one thing now I’ll never change what lead me here
And I’ve got you to thank.
Chorus:
And if it weren’t for you
I would’ve been exposed as a shister, and not hailed a working class hero
And if it weren’t for you
I may not have been grateful for the gifts I’ve inherited now,
And if it weren’t for you
I may not have been picked up from the gutter down in rock bottom
And if it weren’t for you
When I gave all my love to my wife I may not have known how
Verse 2:
We have our scars body mind and soul,
Doesn’t mean they define us or mean a fucking thing at all
Laughing and joking, screaming bloody fights,
This experience I had it tells me I’ma be alright
And I’ve got you to thank
Chorus:
And if it weren’t for you
I would’ve been exposed as a shister, and not hailed a working class hero
And if it weren’t for you
I may not have been grateful for the gifts I’ve inherited now,
And if it weren’t for you
I may not have been picked up from the gutter down in rock bottom
And if it weren’t for you
When I gave all my love to my wife I may not have known how
Track Name: Live The Dream
Verse 1:
They say why wait for tomorrow, when you can do it for today
Some might steal before they borrow, ‘cause it might take their pain away
Bridge 1:
I’ve live my life always wanting more
Waiting for the opportunity to find that open door
Through the good the rough I’ll be ready
To get there
By whatever means it take me
Chorus:
Live the Dream,
By all means
Don’t let no one drag you down
Stand your ground and fuck the crowd
Go live your dream
Verse 2:
Don’t let the haters bring you down, pick yourself up from the ground
Take my advice sometime you just gotta think twice, to who or where you wanna be.
Bridge 2:
I’ve got regrets yeah but don’t we all
Just make sure you get up when you fall
No ones got the right to tell you how to life your life
As long as your breathing and you’ve got a reason
Chorus
Live the Dream,
By all means
Don’t let no one drag you down
Stand your ground and fuck the crowd
Go live your dream
Track Name: Fighting My Way
Verse 1:
I’m tired of waiting in a queue to get to a queue,
Pushing through tourists and hens and stags,
Fighting my way to you,
Staring at neon lights and hearing multilingual words,
Motorways and offices and terminals and hotels
Pre Chorus:
It’s all just cardboard backdrops when you’re not there,
I just don’t wanna be here,
If I can’t be with you then fuck it I don’t wanna be anywhere
Chorus:
I wish that you could be by my side,
But I’m so damn sick of these goddamn miles
And I will have you here by my side
And I’ll conquer every one of these goddamn miles
Verse 2:
Wasted hours on the underground will I ever get off this train,
I got a hundred thousand stops to go and a trudge home in the rain,
My lower body’s aching with the effort of this uphill climb,
But it’ll be worth every ache and pain to be holding you in my arms
Pre Chorus:
It’s all just cardboard backdrops when you’re not here but fuck it I’m damn close
A minute more and a lifetime score I made it I made it home
Chorus:
I wish that you could be by my side,
But I’m so damn sick of these goddamn miles
And I will have you here by my side
And I’ll conquer every one of these goddamn mile
Track Name: All These Things
Verse 1
Have you ever wondered where the good times went?
Reminiscing of the days and the times we've spent
Well I can tell you they're just fragments of our lives
Making up the mosaic of our time
Pre Chorus:
Reopening a letter, from a loved one that's moved on
Or listening to a song, we once danced to until dawn
Chorus:
All these things, (All these little things)
Remind me of you
And all that is true
Verse 2:
Sometimes when I look back,
I can see you I can feel you
How you looked into me
Verse 3:+
The time at the fairground,
On a cold, neon night
When you turned round and said, I
I will always be with you
Pre Chorus:
Reopening a letter, from a loved one that's moved on
Or listening to a song, we once danced to until dawn
Chorus:
All these things, (All these little things)
Remind me of you
And all that is true
Track Name: Minus One 2
Another year goes by and I miss you,
Guess it'll never be the same,
But I find ways to keep you in my life,
And it makes it like you never had to leave,

My baby girl knows to point you out,
On the pictures of you on my wall,
I nearly started playing in your band,
But I thought that might be taking things to far,

And now you get another uke track,
So I guess that you'll be really chuffed,
It's my way of making sure you know,
That I'm thinking of you every single day.
