Tiger came and tried to be a friend to me Tiger came and tried to be a friend to me I said no tiger, I don't need no friends anymore I want a love to sing all the good soul I've heard Tiger came and tried to be a friend to me Tiger came and tried to be a friend to me I said no tiger, I don't need no friends anymore I want me an ocean and a mockingbird Tiger came and tried to be a friend to me Tiger came and tried to be a friend to me Tiger won't you always be a friend to me Tiger you're the only one I see

This life's a struggle, you're dying trying This life is what you make it There is joy in the strangest of places In the faces of strangers I say, we're in this together Yeah, we're in this together And you can move on up and come join us Move on up and walk with us Keep on moving, don't lose your step I have been there and I know how hard it is But I think you will rise You should know that you can rise From a valley so low, to a mountain so high It's all just perspective, it's in your mind You've got to live like a man on the streets once in awhile Two dollars to your name and you can't spend it all You're bumming cigarettes and matches But you just can't smoke til the end 'cause the end will come You get back a little fight, you could move on up Just walk, yeah, walk with us Keep on moving, don't lose your step I have been there and I know how hard it is But I think you will rise You should know that you can rise

We're built to get restless Patience doesn't stay We take things for granted Burning bridges on our way Now halfway through the drive Take a swig and swallow hard Get me out of here Get me out of this mess My brother speeds past the limit This night I am thankful for it Electric Avenue I'm coming And oh I've got the blues You might be the cure buzzing Electric Avenue If by night I'm a sinner What am I in the morning If you give more than you take Does that make you a good person My brother speeds past the limit This night I am thankful for it Electric Avenue I'm coming And oh I've got the blues You might be the cure buzzing Electric Avenue Are you feeling hot tonight? Are you feeling hot tonight? Oh, how you feelin'? Electric Avenue I'm coming And oh I've got the blues You might be the cure buzzing Electric Avenue

If you feel like getting lost in the middle of the city, Sweets, come and find me. I'll have the drinks poured and ready. If we were to stand in pissing rain, we could start a fire still. On our old stomping grounds, we could go straight to hell. There's no flowers there and there's just bones here. There's no flowers there like there's no flowers here. Oh sweets, come and find me, it's not love but I'm not hiding. We could drink like we're seventeen, stumble down a hill into the trees. On our old stomping grounds, we could go straight to hell. There's just bones there, just bones there. There's just bones there, just bones there. Oh sweets, come and find me, it's not love but I'm not hiding. No I'm not hiding, no no.

Mary gives the boys a fever It's a hundred degrees when she's around Like the hottest day in summer When there's no way to stop the sweat from beading down She's cool, calm and collected They, they can't find their tongues She's cool, calm and collected Ready for what comes Mary has style like no other Or maybe things just look good on her She sings her way across the Boulevard Even when the rain is pouring down She's cool, calm and collected They, they can't find their tongues She's cool, calm and collected Ready for what comes She's just like a ferris wheel Spinning round and round While all the boys look her up and down They want to find out how she works So they can work for her They want to find out, like I want to find out Mary gives the boys a fever, yes she does It's a hundred degrees when she's around Like the hottest day in summer When there's no way to stop the sweat from beading down She's cool, calm and collected They, they can't find their tongues She's cool, calm and collected Ready for what comes

The disconnected, the lost young souls I see you with your head down I see you with your head down That's no place to find the wonder And you can't change a past No you can't change a past Though you can change Where you're going If you don't think you'll make it Then you won't make it If you don't try Then you won't know Don't waste that potential To lost young souls, I hope you wake up wide eyed with hope My money's on you, my money's on you To Turn this ship around And you can't change a past No you can't change a past Though you can change Where you're going If you don't think you'll make it Then you won't make it If you don't try Then you won't know Don't waste that potential I see potential in you, I see potential in you Now tell me what are you gonna do?

She came close and whispered I need your hands on my hips Fella give me an answer before some other man comes to my glance Gotta move to the music, gotta move to the music Come on move now, come on move You know she's pretty like Audrey, those eyes bound to suck you in Got a feeling about this one, just might put a ring on her hand Gotta move to the music, gotta move to the music Come on move now, come on move The last bird that he had didn't sing The last bird that he had didn't sing You need a bird that can sing so your life is sweet You need a bird that can sing Gotta move to the music, gotta move to the music Come on move now, come on move Go move, find a bird that can sing Yeah move, find your melody

Please forgive me, I've gone and fucked it up again Like the smell of the smoke and the fire when it burns oh I love the way it glows Please just hold me, I'm young and I'm dumb and I'm numb I need someone that can wake me up, to show me that there is love All the houses in a row, all the houses I need a home I've been running, I've been running I've been running away, I've been running for so long I've been running, I've been running I've been running away, I've been running so long, so long Please don't leave me I can't make it on my own I need that push come on and give me that push and help me laugh if the bottom falls out All the houses in a row, all the houses I need a home I've been running, I've been running I've been running away, I've been running for so long I've been running, I've been running I've been running away, I've been running for so long, so long

You were cherry cheeked off talking I was digging for some matches Under a crescent moon, I could go on without you I could could go off into the dark You, you're slippery when you're drinking Daddy's little angel in torn up tights Down these streets we know, you could get off without me I could could go on past neon signs I'm not a broken man, I've got days to live And I feel better than I've felt I'm not a broken man, but tonight blood is thin And I feel better, yeah better, than I've felt Love honey 'til the day I die The little lights that hold you tight Oh, everything will be alright Love honey 'til the day I die The little lights that hold you tight Oh, everything will be just fine I'm not a broken man, I've got days to live And I feel better than I've felt I'm not a broken man but tonight blood is thin And I feel better, yeah better, than I've felt You were right we were no good together You and I, we were better as strangers And so it goes, so it goes I'm not a broken man, I've got days to live And I feel better, yeah better, than I've felt I'm not a broken man but tonight my blood is thin And I feel better, yeah better, than I've felt You were so slippery

Boys, we were born boxers With hands like our fathers Not bound to the fight But if you gotta fight Keep it honest, keep it clean No knives or guns tonight No lost brothers, mothers holding candles Take back the city, take back the streets Take back the city, take back the streets Gentlemen, these are hard times To keep our sisters safe Fight if you gotta fight But don't fight to kill 'Cause no one wins No knives or guns tonight No lost brothers, mothers holding candles Take back the city, take back the streets Take back the city, take back the streets Bound by blood we're together Down by the tracks, kicking up dust Like wolves ready, ripe for the hunt Take it back, take it back, take it back, take it back You were born ready. Oh yes you were. Take back the city, take back the streets

You went there to drink, I went to watch the alcoholics, all desperate shades of dissappointment Making their appointment for happy hour drinks and VLT's And I watch them and I watch you and wait on slurs and cusses And I watch them and I watch you and it's all scars and bruises If this is the life I don't want to live it, American dreams Have you felt let down? Have you felt the fucked up feeling that everyone's leaving? I never understood how you never understood that they weren't there in the first place And I watch them and I watch and wait on slurs and cusses And I watch them and I watch you and its all scars and bruises If this is the life I don't want to live, American dreams Give me a place to rest my head and maybe a book to read Give me a place to rest my head that's all I need This is my life I'm going to live it, American dreams

We were running through the forrest, hatchets in our hands. Starting fires, getting wet. In Lost lakes I felt a pounding in my chest. Anytime you want to, call and catch up. If you need a shoulder, I've got you covered. We were sleeping by the river, in a mountain pass. Keeping quiet, staying distant. Still that night, I felt a pounding in my chest. Anytime you want to, call and catch up. If you need a shoulder, I've got you covered. And don't you settle for a prick. You're a diamond, you're a diamond. And don't you settle for a prick. You're a diamond, you need a good man. You're a diamond, you're a diamond. And the boys are a dime a dozen. Yeah, a dime a dozen. The boys are a dime a dozen. You're a diamond, you're a diamond.

about

"...if there’s a flaw on this album, I haven’t heard it yet. It’s not often that a band comes right out of the gate with a masterpiece, but going by New Young Electric, it’s clear that The Fight are no ordinary band." - i(heart)music

"The Fight are astonishing in their ability to consistently infuse onto their recorded songs the kind of imminent life-or-death energy that most bands struggle to achieve even with the volume and sweat of a particularly exhilarating live encounter." - Argue Job

"...it’ll be hard not to want to fall in love with these guys..." -xomag
