about

Los and the Deadlines London, UK

The seedy underbelly of any major city spawns some of the most depraved and morally reprehensible bastards that even the dregs of civilization look down upon. These cretins walk amongst us, they ask you for money, they serve you drinks, they file your taxes, and in this case; they formed a band. ... more

Track Name: Feel At Ease
I think I've got an idea to make some money on the side. It shouldn't be too much work.
Just an hour or 2 here and there. It'll give me plenty of down time.
I just need to get a hold of an old friend. He knows another guy that can put me in touch with the right person.
After that, a few phone calls a day, a couple of hand to hands and I should be in the clear.

My feet hurt I'm tired of walking these streets .
looking for ways to live the dream.
A quick fix, a fast track to succeed.
Help me feel at ease.

I'm not happy with how this is panning out. His phone is dead. Does he have a new number?
Even if he does I'm the only one who would have it. Unless he is hanging round the old spot.
If I work part time where he is always turning up,I can grab him and make my golden pitch.
Who the hell am I kidding, I got nothing, I got no one, I need to come up with a plan B, DAMN.

Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh

My feet hurt I'm tired of walking these streets .
looking for ways to live the dream.
A quick fix, a fast track to succeed.
Help me feel at ease, feel at ease, feel at ease...
Track Name: It Could Be So Much Better
Two packs please, smoke one tonight the other in the morning.
Super-size me, I’ll finish it all before the evening news.
On T.V., nothing ever changes. It’s getting boring.
Open up my cupboard to look just for the right booze.

It could be so much better.

Love all the people.
Feed all the starving.
See each other as equal.
Then we’ll start evolving.

Thank you sir. Come again, we’re always full of stock.
Pretty sure I won't be here tomorrow, need a day to rest.
My manager is gunna have to cover as he watches the clock.
Woke me up with a phone call saying “you ain’t doing your best”

It could be so much better.

Love all the people.
Feed all the starving.
See each other as equal.
Then we’ll start evolving.
Track Name: The Youth's Opinion
Identify your expectations.
Don't deny the requirements.
Please provide at least two references.
We'll decide if they're strong enough relationships.

I'll do anything, anywhere, any given time.
I'll never ask what is fair, I will never wine.
Take me now, take me here, promise not to leave.
I need a chance, give me a chance, PLEASE.

Specify your experience in research.
Tell us why you have organizational skills.
How high is your level of self-motivation?
Will you try to raise that by 100%?

I'll do anything, anywhere, any given time.
I'll never ask what is fair, I will never wine.
Take me now, take me here, promise not to leave.
I need a chance, give me a chance, PLEASE.

Congratulations, we are willing to offer this permanent position with 20 days holiday per fiscal year.
This will involve unsocial hours and you'll need to provide a track-record of meeting targets, good writing skills, excellent face-to-face communication, savvy with social networking and really do value the youth's opinions..
The youths opinions... The youth's opinions...
Track Name: Batshit Crazy
Bags under my eyes, holes in her jeans, head in my hands, what have I just seen?
She's got earbuds in, dancing on the pole, on the tube,16 years old
My stomach turns, I look to my side. There is a creep enjoying his ride.
Either this world is sick, or I'm insane.
Whatever the case just get me off this train.

This is Bat-Shit Crazy!

Tea in my hands cigarette on her lips.
The server holds her empty jar of tips.
Her smoke is done, she rolls another,
A man from the corner shouts he loves her!
My eyes roll, I decide not to stay.
I see there are no cups for take away.
This city is ill, or I've lost my mind,
Whatever the case I'll leave it all behind.

This is Bat-Shit Crazy!
With no sign of any sudden change.
This is Bat-Shit Crazy!
It's time for me to run away.
Track Name: Lust To Shop For Nothing
Give me some cash, show me some love,
Give me my bag, I'll fill it up.
The sales are moving fast there almost done.
Baby I'm broke, got nothing left,
Had a bad month, just paid the rent.
Here's my credit card just spend a little less.

We sprint, we rush, to go, to the store.
We see, we touch, we feel, need more.
Never, enough, we lust, what for?
We spend, our days, alone, indoors.

Look what I got, all shinny and new.
It was all half off, here's a gift for you.
I had such a good time, what did you do?
Thank you so much, your too kind.
I was at home looking for deals online.
Lets stay in tonight, see what we can find.

We sprint, we rush, to go, to the store.
We see, we touch, we feel, need more.
Never, enough, we lust, what for?
We spend, our days, alone, indoors.
