about

The Routines Caernarfon, UK

The Routines are a three-piece band hailing from Snowdonia. They are three friends who write and shout about their nights out and days in. Disillusioned with society's 'How To Be A Good And Co-Operative Civilian' life-guide, they write and shout about it instead of using that emotion to burn down council buildings or something of that nature! ... more

Track Name: Twice In A Blue Moon
Take me somewhere away from my home,
for a company car and a brand new phone,
let me join Blue Moon.

It's not a question of unhappiness,
we don't care about the badge on our chests,
let me join Blue Moon.

I've already made it but man, I can't taste it,
my ego is soaked up in real history,
but pay me and maybe I'll go and show you some love.

I got my millions for disloyalty,
and my face in the fan magazine,
now I've joined Blue Moon.

I can take it, sure hope that I can,
now that you know that I certainly will go far,
any chance, it can't be missed and as long as I don't go breaking bones.

I jumped in too quick and got carried away,
now I'm stuck on a stretcher at the end of the day,
but pay me and maybe I'll go and show you some love.

Why did you let me go?
I wanna come back on loan.
Never let me go again.
Now that I'm home.
Track Name: 00:30
Now I'll admit that the vodka cokes, they have worked on me.
At this point I don't care about you vanity.

Fuck me, you look so good,
and I don't blame you,
please let me take you now, come on.

So get your phone out and take a few snaps of us drinking, alright,
cause you and I, yeah we'll want to remember tonight.

Fuck me, we look so good,
and we can't fake it,
please let me take you now, come on.

I was hoping that you would be gone by the morning,
but I awoke to find you making some tea,
and your vanity shines yet again in the morning light,
gotta remind myself of how I was thinking last night...

Fuck me, you looked so good,
but not now we're sober,
I was taken over, come on.

Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Track Name: Christening
Now that you're born, let's have a christening,
so your dear old mum can have a drink or two.
For nine months she hasn't had a pull of a fag or a WKD blue.

Now that you're born let's have a christening,
to celebrate what there's no occasion for.
As far as forcing beliefs upon you man,
we haven't given it thought.

So hello my son,
I feel like I've won,
I'm gonna put you in a football shirt.
We'll play in the park,
and sleep after dark,
make sure that you will never get hurt.

I never go to church,
unless there's a wedding on or somebody's dead.
And it's taken it's toll,
cause I'm back on the dole,
but there's no chance now of staying in bed.

Now that you're born, let's have a christening,
so your dear old mum can have a drink or two.
For nine months she hasn't had a pull of a fag or a WKD blue.

Now that you're born let's have a christening,
to celebrate what there's no occasion for.
As far as forcing beliefs upon you man,
we haven't given it thought.

So let me be blunt,
the vicar's in front,
so everybody's now forced to pray.
For the first time in years,
confessing your fears,
over candles on this holy day.

I never go to church,
unless there's a wedding on or somebody's dead.
And it's taken it's toll,
cause I'm back on the dole,
but there's no chance now of staying in bed.

Now that you're born, let's have a christening,
so your dear old mum can have a drink or two.
For nine months she hasn't had a pull of a fag or a WKD blue.

Now that you're born let's have a christening,
to celebrate what there's no occasion for.
As far as forcing beliefs upon you man...oh.
