lyrics

He stands on the podium ready for ridicule
Resembling the least popular boy in vampire school
The feel, the deal we've been here before
Measured expectations have us heading for the door

But then we hear
You're not defenceless any more
Despite the evidence you saw
There once was no logic just bigotry
There can be perfection and symmetry
You're not defenceless any more
Optimism conquers all
Excited, ignited, united, unstoppable

We’re beaten exhausted and punch drunk upon the floor
We’ve found that you can’t change the system, we know the score
But then the youth with expectation’s eyes
Untainted by relentless failure look up to the skies

They’re singing
You're not defenceless any more
Despite the evidence you saw
There once was no logic just bigotry
There can be perfection and symmetry
You're not defenceless any more
Optimism conquers all
Excited, ignited, united, unstoppable

You're not defenceless any more

The world is a party I’d not been invited to
I’ve gatecrashed a baffling labyrinth of peer reviews
But then a voice from somewhere in the room
Makes a small but valid point and it’s possible we’re not doomed

You're not defenceless any more
Despite the evidence you saw
There once was no logic just bigotry
There can be perfection and symmetry
You're not defenceless any more
Optimism conquers all
Excited, ignited, united, unstoppable

In 2016 they released their first full length studio album in 10 years - 'Enforced Fun'.
