lyrics

Naturally I'm a bit scared...
It's been a while since I've been with a girl
and I don't remember how to bring them into my world.
I feel so out of touch.
The players not the game has changed so I haven't missed much
but the pressure's at the point to where my head is gonna explode.
My friends all dragged me out when I wanted to stay at home.
That cute girl at the bar is in need of some help
but I would feel to awkward to introduce myself.

Do I really want to take a risk and put myself out there when I know
that she'll just hurt me just like the rest of them.
I don't think so...

Start off not having anything to talk about.
Leave off thinking you'd just rather do without.
Write off your past attempts because it'll put you off.
It's tough getting back on the horse when it throws you off.

There you go, spoken like a true cynic.

I'm not giving up on life. Just putting off having girls in it.
I'm just comparing the pros against the cons
and if the pros outweigh the cons then I can't be wrong.

Con you won't get laid.

I still probably will but it won't be in that 'special' way.
Pro. You won't get messed around, have your heart trampled on and beaten into the ground.

One day I'll find that special someone.
Right now I'm better off without one.
Sometimes you'd just rather have fun...

about

The Hostiles South Ayrshire, UK

The Hostiles capture the upbeat energy of US west coast ska punk in the slightly less-sunny climes of west coast Scotland. Spirited and infectious, they combine distorted guitars riffs, low-slung rhythms, in-your-face vocals and a two-pronged brass backbone of trumpet and trombone. Good times guaranteed. ... more
