about

These songs were written, performed and recorded by Social Square over the years. We stopped playing them, but years later, we realized they weren't so bad. So here they are.
Thank you Arnaud, Laurent, Adeline, Renaud, James, Barry, Ben.

Track Name: Justin T. (2006)
He wants to be Justin Timberlake
Don't we all
I really should get myself a trim
Your pretty face is all you got
I figured the system could for me
All this work
And all the payback on the way
Man check out all of my features
Ain't that some astutely crafted shit?
Track Name: Wait For More (2006)
I want out of this car
Before I lose it once and for all
I need a chance to find myself again
Cause I've never felt so unamused, but yes I had a lovely weekend

Tried everything but it's still so wrong
This endless situation
I can't just stand here and wait for more
I can, I can it's dreadful
All of my answers were swept away
And buried under mounts of nothing
Understand I'm really someone else, or shall we share some harmless chatting
Track Name: Pass It Around (2008)
Kids in a cage, you will catch your death
Cracking down on all costs, you will catch your death
All the ways of the world will have you think that life is safe till it hits you now

It's all bad news, is it
Well sign me in, I want to share
Who wants it
Will you pass it around

Cold smiles might do the trick for you
So easy to figure out it's true
Just how easily you can slip
Slowly worn like
A rope and stone ledge
Who wants it
Will you pass it around
Track Name: Bigger (2008)
Big getting bigger
What can you do when plans have been made for all
Don't know what they are
But this is never-ending
You know how it goes
We all have our reasons

Well our days are simple
Never mind truth
You can say what you like
And drown it in lies, you can
Now child, you have not a chance but
Who will still care
If this is not happening
This is not happening to us now
Track Name: Back of my Hand (2008)
Try this now, I've had it all along
Keep it up cause your gut is right
All you're lacking is a little information

Now the coward's tough
Cause it's in my head
And now I worry I can't
I worry

Count your blessings
It isn't too hard
Cause all the fake stuff
Promises so much

Now it's all dead
I've been back and forth across the back of my hand
Track Name: No One Knows (2010)
Tell me something funny and I'm sure to hit the floor
As long as you keep it stupid
You'll be amazed what you put up with, however insecure
Endlessly projected
But I said watch out kid
You'll never see it coming
And no one knows now
Track Name: It vs. You (2010)
I lost control
Whatever can I say
I lost control
What can I say
I figured I would fight
Never letting up
But it all adds up to what
Cause it goes
You'll be the weaker one whatever you do
So I'll just care for me

You can let us know all that you feel
We will take control now
Did you get that we won't let you go
Cause better days are coming

Let me break out
And leave it all behind
But when you hate this world where do you go
We should put up a fight
Try to measure up
Though it all adds up to what
Track Name: Wasted (2011)
This song is all I've got
It's all that I have going on
I try to ponder every step but I keep moving along
These guys they like to let it hang
Yeah it's all hanging
These girls would not know something good if it should slap them in the face
Where's your trust?
Who do you love?
Well it's wasted, it's all wasted
Well it's wasted, why it's all gone to waste

I have to disapprove
I'm sorry, I gotta disapprove
With everything I've got I'll fight back and shame those fools
One of these days I will make things right and stay right
Until they all know something good cause I'll go slap them in the face
Track Name: TWGRESL (2012)
Just when you think you've got it all figured out
And every aspect neatly mapped in your head
I thought I'd been around and shed any doubt
I take it back and don't know what else can be said

Sheer beauty can still blow your mind away
Simplicity of everything that you love
I take a deep breath and try pace my brain
Still having trouble grasping everything

It's just a muscle she needs to stand upright
It's oh so common but it just feels so damn right
It feels like the first time but I really like it here
Yeah I could settle down, enjoy the view and fuck the fear
Track Name: Blank (2012)
You left me with a blank check
For time to think
You left me with a blank check
For nothing to do

And yeah empty does not
Begin to say
The piece cut out
So damn large

What good are they now
Memories in my brain
I can't look them in the eye

Cause you left me with a broken soul
And so much time to think alone
As I stand empty handed
I just can't seem to fill the void
Track Name: Six Weeks (2013)
He died first
And then his mom
She kept forgetting that he was gone

No food, no one around
No one but the hungry cats started nibbling at their feet
In the end she just fell to her bathroom floor
Six weeks in the hot summer, two bodies waiting

The stench will grab you from the front door
Your gut says it can only be bad
How could it be something you ignore
Now should I cry or laugh or be mad

Six weeks to let them go.
