Title track from our Autumn 2014 recording sessions from Lever Street Studios, Manchester with Jasper Wilkinson and Matt Steele.

lyrics

I-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay started trying to read between the lines
Before I learned to string my sentences together
I-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay never thought you'd try so hard to waste my time
Yeah I was under the impression
We were teaching you a lesson
But you get away with everything again and again

Pre Chorus
(And so) You keep on telling me things are getting better
(Yeah) You keep on saying we're all in this together
But it don't mean nothing 'cos nothing lasts forever

Chorus
Get cynical - To get a reaction
Get cynical - You see the attraction?
Of getting cynical - To get a reaction
'Cos no-one means a word they say

Get cynical - To push an agenda
Get cynical - Never surrender!
Get cynical - To get a reaction
'Cos no-one means a word they say

Verse
I-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay always thought that money made the world go round
So why'd you seem to want us working here for nothing?
You get burned if you play in the sun-shine
There's no truth on your TV screens
I was under the impression
We were teaching you a lesson
But you get with everything again and again

Pre Chorus
(So now) You keep on telling me things are getting better
You keep on saying we're all in this together
But it don't mean nothing 'cos nothing lasts forever

Chorus
Get cynical - To get a reaction
Get cynical - You see the attraction?
Of getting cynical - To get a reaction
'Cos no-one means a word they say

Get cynical - To push an agenda
Get cynical - Never surrender!
Get cynical - To get a reaction
'Cos no-one means a word they say

Get cynical - To get a reaction
Get cynical - You see the attraction?
Of getting cynical - To get a reaction
Cos no-one means a word they s
