about

Recorded in our local seaside town of Wicklow by Spud "John" Murphy. It took a year to record from start to finish but we made it in the end!!

The album comprises of 11 tracks, all written and played by Bocs Social past and present members!!
We like to say that Bocs Social "play music to dance to", and while we feel the album achieves this, many of the songs have a much more sinister message about times of economic difficulty and violence that we see in the world today, hence the name "Social Life". However very far from depressing are these songs, as the upbeat rhythms, catchy melodies and overall musical energy may have you tapping a foot or two, or maybe even getting up and skanking on the spot!!

Track Name: Shot One
Shot One another kid holdin a gun
Shot two He aint gonna worry about you
Shot three a product of this society
shot four another kid dead on the floor

think back... when you were just 15
had nothin to worry about except gettin seen....
smokin a cigarette or lighting a fuse
or finding the Sun was never bought for it's news

and Time and time and time again
Clubbin together with all of your friends
5 pounds and 6 dutch Gold well its a life of a kid with no fear of gettin old ......

Shot One another kid holdin a gun
Shot two He aint gonna worry about you
Shot three a product of this society
shot four another kid dead on the floor.

BANG BANG .... as the barrel gets hot
he once was livin but now he's not
he makes a get away on a BMX ..you watch out out for this boy he gives as good as he gets
he's only a child in our eyes
but he's seen too much and heard too many lies
so he goes out with his gun in hand , its not temporary madness cos he's got it all planned ...

Shot One another kid holdin a gun
Shot two He aint gonna worry about you
Shot three a product of this society
shot four another kid dead on the floor.

shot 4 ....... shot 4.... shot 4.... shot 4 .........

he doesnt care who gets hurt
he's pickin up the pieces he's face down in the dirt
so what happens to a boy like that
no fear of retrobution or a knife in his back
he'll do it for money , he'll do it for spite
he doesnt even wait for the cover of night
I feel sorry for a wasted life , do we look inwards
is this our fight .....

Shot One another kid holdin a gun
Shot two He aint gonna worry about you
Shot three a product of this society X 2
shot four another kid dead on the floor.

Track Name: Social Life
Fall into bed at 4am
I got a time I cant be late again
Wake me early to meet my friends
you needed 20 but just for a lend
I can stretch it if you need a hand
I've got direction but i've got no plan
It isnt easy when your ends dont meet
everyone's the same livin on the street

Social life can be nothin but trouble
modern times make it tough on the double
social life can be nothin but trouble
it's a full time job life after the bubble.

Neighbours makin noise again
shouting on the streets Kids are in the pen
you could tell them somethin they dont know
Police have just arrived but you tell them where to go

I cant just leave well though not for long
my money's topped on my mobile phone
it isnt easy when your ends dont meet
everyone's the same livin on the street

Social life can be nothin but trouble
modern times make it tough on the double
social life can be nothin but trouble
it's a full time job life after the bubble.

Lights have just gone out again
searchin down the couch for another 50 cent
it isnt easy when your ends wont meet
everuones the same living on the street .. oh livin on the street .......


Social life can be nothin but trouble
modern times make it tough on the double
social life can be nothin but trouble
it's a full time job life after the bubble.
Track Name: Abbey Street
From the mouth of the River to the cobbled street.
they huddle up in corners and shuffle on their feet
theyre not quite living and not quite dead
you wonder what the hell is goin on inside their head

It dont look easy it sure aint fair
these visions are disturbing but we dont seem to care
down darkened alleys with piss every where
it costs alot of money to live in such despair on

Abbey street....... On Abbey Street ...... On Abbey Street where's there's gangs on Huddled fear well on Abbey Street and the end is never near!

I've seen grown men argue over stupid things
No energy for fighting and rooting in the bins
They dont seem happy to be where they are
you wouldnt swop places even when things get hard
Keep your head down walking these streets are rough
The Abbeys lights just cant provide enough
A shout a ??? (to be updated)
I can speak their language but im tired of talking tough on ...

Abbey street....... On Abbey Street ...... On Abbey Street where's there's gangs on Huddled fear well on Abbey Street and the end is never near!

Pick up pieces of a shattered life
Pick up needles even out for the night
they sleep under arches and passing trains
I dont know the feeling coasting their veins
The things I see, I cannot change , you can afford it
It feels quite strange
It's easy talking of these boys and girls
Looking out the window of a shadowed little world on


Abbey street....... On Abbey Street ...... On Abbey Street where's there's gangs on Huddled fear well on Abbey Street and the end is never near!
Track Name: No Place else to go
If I didnt know where the Hip young people go

And if the parts dont fit in and youve had enough of it

well they're killin for religion so please just watch your back cos it doesnt really matter if youre white or if youre black oh they know ... well they've got no place else to go ... oh they know that they've got no place else to go ....
we watch those people queue , yes they're shuffling on through ... get em back when ya need it's not the hardest thing they'll do oh they know ... well they got no place else to go ... oh they know well they've got no place else to go ...

Track Name: That Man
Well no more worries No more stressin out
well its all too easy to slip and fall down
you got to pick your self up and put a spring in your step
cos life's what you make it you cant blame no one else

Cos I cannot be that man anymore
I said I cannot be that man anymore X 3

well take some lessons flying anything that is worth trying before you get to dyin....
well its not always easy eh im not denying
well you put just 10 more years of youth
thought you could ....
well these are not bad times they're just , they're misunderstood...

I cannot be that man anymore
I said I cannot be that man anymore X 3

Well whats the point in feeling down
but I do feel it, when youre not around
well i'd take a long walk off the shortest pier
If it meant you'd come back and you'd keep me near

Cos I cannot be that man anymore
I said I cannot be that man anymore X 3

but i wont get it now and thats for sure

Whoa Oh oh oh oh oh ....

Whoa Oh oh oh oh oh .... Whoa
