about

Social Life gave the name to the album too. It is about being on the dole or "the social" in a post celtic tiger economic boom.

lyrics

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.
