Angles
[HOOK]
Things in life ain’t always quite what they seem
There’s more than one given angle to any one given scene
So bear that in mind next time you try to intervene
On any one given angle, on any one given scene

[MARK]
My name is Mark; I go to Uni and college
Don’t socialise that much, I just revise and build knowledge
At times I find that I become a virtual recluse
I let my belt of interaction hang decisively loose
But I came here to learn and that’s the life that I choose
So if people think that I’m boring they can bring their abuse
See a lot of people think that I’m boring and say
That maybe I’m a weirdo or maybe I’m gay
But I don’t care, cause when I get a good job and good pay
I’ll get a house for just my brother and me some day
And that’s the reason I’m here, just to build for the future
And if it means better grades, I’d even sleep with my tutor

[HOOK]
Things in life ain’t always quite what they seem
There’s more than one given angle to any one given scene
So bear that in mind next time you try to intervene
On any one given angle, on any one given scene
[PAUL]
My name is Paul and I’ve been a guard for 6 months
The shop that I guard is better than most dumps
That’s why I like it here and my boss, he’s a pro
He’s taught me tricks of the trade that other guards wouldn’t know
I’ve learnt that in this game, there’s some rules you gotta bend
And not to forget these thieving pricks ain’t your friend
And that appearance is key cause there’s a message to send
And above all of that it’s your fellow guards you defend
The other day my boss was stabbed by some lowlife psycho
He’s in hospital now, so every night that’s where I go
He’s on the brink right now, but he’s showing no fear though
Cause if he dies there in bed, he knows he’s dying a hero

[KEITH]
My name is Keith and I ain’t so much a racist
But if one reached out a hand, I’d decline their embraces
I work security in a shop in charge of five other guards
And I’ve got all of their respect cause I run this sh*t hard
I nicked one kid today; he didn’t show enough respect and attention
So I grabbed him by the neck, see that’s my form of redemption
I do no real harm; just make sure that it hurts
It ain’t going by the book, but believe me, it works
Then I sent him on his way, that little sh*t knows the score now
Instil a little bit of fear - he won’t darken my door now
And that’s what I do, stop these kids from decline
Do what their parents wouldn’t do, put down some boundaries and lines

[BILLY]
My name is Billy and I’ve been beaten since I was three
Mum died when I was born and dad takes it out on me
He ain’t a bad man, he just gets drunk and feels alone
I tend to go for a walk, hope he’s asleep when I get home
I don’t like to talk about it, though, cause like I said it ain’t his fault
It only happens when he’s drunk as a last resort
I wanted to get him a gift to show my support
But I had no money, so I stole and I guess I got caught
At times like that, I kinda switch of my mind
Stare blankly into space and let what happens unwind
That seemed to anger this guard, he put his hands round my neck
He said it's time for me to learn some manners and respect
It hurt, but I’ve had worse before
But it made me realise life was just a series of wars
I went straight home that day and locked the bathroom door
Took a blade to both wrists, they won't hurt me no more

[MARK]
My name is Mark; today I was told my brother was dead
I returned from Uni and burst into tears on his bed
Under his pillow, I found his suicide note and I read
What had happened that day, and what had f**ked up his head
The anger I felt right then, there are no words to express
I filled up with so much rage, there was no way to digest
I grabbed a knife and walked to town, it was time to regress
Back to an-eye-for-an-eye, last-breath-for-last-breath
I went straight up to the counter and said I’d like to speak
To the guard that nicked my brother on Tuesday of this week
As the girl went through a door and disappeared out of sight
I put my hand in my pocket and I gripped the knife tight
This was it, as she pointed me out to the guard
My hand began to shake, I held the knife so hard
Then as he approached me there was nothing to say
I stabbed that f**ker eight times before they could take me away

On any one given angle, on any one given scene
