Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

very rushed a lot more to do here

Lyrics: 

I know I should have listened more
to teachers and my Mum
but the bad boys always had more fun
so easy to succumb

I hated school and wanted out
At the earliest possible time
Not sure where I was headed
But I was looking for showtime

Wont I ever get it right
Always ends up in a fight
I guess again ill end up burnt
Why isn’t this a lesson learnt

Wasnt much better when I left
Hung out with the dodgy crowd
Came to the cops attention
We always were so loud

We were only petty criminals
Just making ends meet
Trying to find the big score
To get us on our feet

Wont I ever get it right
Always ends up in a fight
I guess again ill end up burnt
Why isn’t this a lesson learnt

You get lucjy sometimes
I found a mentor or two
They provided me with good advice
Helped to get me through

Now im a pillar of society
They never saw me grow
But for the grace of God
Im lucky yes I know

Now ive really got it right
No longer in a fight
No more getting burnt
These are my lesson learnt



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

nice story, i like the lesson being learnt at the end, nice skirmishing Smile

Wow - how do you get such a full sounding demo to these? Drums and guitar etc? A tale of the knocks of real life and coming out the other side. Nice!

A very complete story and well told. Wistful and insightful. And yes, it's a very full sound for a one hour demo.
