This song is the second single release of 2011. We will continue to release a track a month but please do expect to be surprised as we are continuously experimenting on our monthly releases with left field ideas and influences in an effort to keep you and I on our toes. With Hopeless Heroic you never know what is going to happen next. Can't wait till March's release right - You don't have long to wait and the next one is a corker.


When I was '13' I was an outsider, a word Geek but I learned to be a fighter. '14' having warped dreams - town looks like a war scene. 'At 15' kids are mean fists and feet giving me split lips and missing teeth. '16' Stick me on a space ship, get me outta this place quick PLEASE. '17' The worst its ever been, ah shit we're gonna need therapy. '18' Escape the scene before I kill everyone who irritates me. Wipe the slate clean, no more waiting, it's my life and its evaporating.

Day by day, minute by minute I'm limited by the limitless infinite shit I'm living with. Vivid images are riveting but its imprisoning living in shitty predicaments an innocent kid... Must choose to sink or swim, fuck all the sin of spin, with every lyric i win to inject the will to win.

Live can be great your so called Life can be great this so called life can be great - This is your so called life.

I wish the world would get off my back. This is not a comedy act why you always laugh because I got more problems then cash what's wrong with me mom and dad? I wanna crack - insomniac - my life's a comic book, I'm sick I drop mics, vomit hooks, horrible looks, squints and frowns I'm always up or down like a fucking clown I wanna jump around like House of Pain without restrain I could tear out my brain. I count the days until I bounce on stage scream 'freedom' and take out my 'Rage'. Show you all how to escape, don't doubt your age and live outside your cage.
