Track Name: Declan Paxton - Take You There
the Driver uncovers his Mask
before we Scream too fast
and let everybody know
He’s blowing off a show

and I can Take you There
and I can take You There
and I can Take you There
Said I can take You There

out of this fate

Now to Astley’s Amphitheatre
to escape our own Despair
and your SMILE infers to me
the sights we’re meant to SEE

SO we walk around the stands
FOR new sights of Trapeze acts
see that there’s an opening
to some Front row Splash zone seat

And i can take you there
And I can Take you there
And I can Take You There
Said I can take you there

out of this fate

Take you there
Take you there
take you there
take you there
take you there
take you there
Track Name: Sweaty Eddie - Ready Rollin'
and I don’t know where im going

im rolling
going
cops be out here patrolling
im ready
cause im eddie
im gonna eat my sphaghetti
im rolling
don’t know where
but im going
the cops be out here
patrolling
they won’t find me
im ready rolling
im going
im rolling
don’t know where
but im going
the cops be out here
patrolling
they won’t find me
im ready rolling
im going
Track Name: Hello You Betcha! - Blast Off
[screams]
Mikey was a driver of limousines
At night he dreamed of a flying machine
He didn't care for science or facts
Takes one rocket to prove the Earth flat

"I can't be sold
I can't be bought
I'll be the world's first astronaut"

Blast off!!!

Mikey was driver of limousines
Til the day he built his flying machine
He'll smash right through the firmament
Can't be stopped by the government no

"I can't be sold
I can't be bought
I'll be the world's first astronaut"

Blast off!!!

If this world won't have me I'll leave it behind
All of my friends tell me I'm losing my mind
As the Earth shrinks below me I feel a little lonely
If this world won't have me I'll leave it behind

Outer space is much colder than I first thought
I hope thatI'm the wolrd's last astronaut
Track Name: Interlude I (Victory)
From the farmer, soldier, labourer
From the mine and factory
And side by side we'll quell the tide
CCF to victory!
Track Name: Trace Italian - An Open Letter
Pulled into town at midnight
Traffic lights turned off
Drive past brick and mortar shells that finally caved in on themselves
Making tragedy from art

Yea I took two grams of mushrooms
Walked outside all night long
Spent my life inside an 8-point font on the North Saskatchewan
Mistaking tragedy for art
Drunk kids lost in dark
Work hard to fall apart

I think about you when I'm high
I don't know how to look away
Slow motion car crash in my mind
We're a predator and prey
We're the restaurant that closed and upped the vacancy rate
A note you can't harmonize
You should come on by

You're a pimple on the prairie
You’re an ad break in the way
Shall I compare thee to an old cliché that means something to me
That it won’t for everyone
Its where loneliness comes from
Yea its where loneliness comes from

Take my memory I won't mind
I won't use it anyway
You fill the space I leave behind
Trade the past for progress any day
Buy some land and raise the rent and bleed the town dry
Blame the homeless for the crime
Why won't you come on by?
Its nice in the summertime

I couldn't leave you if I tried
Don’t have the strength to walk away
I'll be stuck here all my life
Become a better man someday
Track Name: High Speed Internet - Keith
The alarm bells ring through Victory Manor
An abandoned apartment on 3rd and 25
The couple upstairs and Keith from the basement
Move to city and learn how to be alive

He will show
And they’ll know

Smoking in the alleyways and burning down the pavement
In the very first lesson he shows them how to fight
He’s pulling out his teeth and she’s scratching at her ear lobes
Transcendence is easier with Keith as your guide

He will show (show ‘em the way)
And they’ll know (know what to say)
And they’ll go (far away)

Then he ran away
And he tried to hide
Couldn’t get away
Even if he tried
So he tried to stay
And it’s where he died
They can’t live without
They can’t live without
They can’t live with

Out the embrace of a warm blooded lover
With his really big ol’ antlers and unwillingness to die
Keith bought them a house in north of Westhills
But the gated residentials made ‘em feel less alive

And they’ll go (far away)
Where it snows (everyday)
They’ll know (know what to say)

Then he ran away
And he tried to hide
Couldn’t get away
Even if he tried
So he tried to stay
And it’s where he died
They can’t live without
They can’t live with

Each other
Waiting for the other one to die

And they’ll go
Where it snows
And they’ll know

Then he ran away
And he tried to hide
Couldn’t get away
Even if he tried
So he tried to stay
And it’s where he died
They can’t live without
They can’t live without
They can’t live without
Track Name: Dylan Sylvester - Worse Than None
I’ve known this girl for a while now
She’s a sight for sore hearts
She’s so close but so far away
And it’s tearing me apart

Does she know That my heart sings when I see her?
Does it matter one way or the next?
Because her feeling the same way towards me
Is unlikely at best

Her answers to all of the chances I give her
Is beyond benefit of the doubt
I should stop chasing what I cannot catch
It's just getting bad for my health

I would go entire weeks
Without a thing to eat
If I could speak with her
Without interruption
But it’s not a lofty claim
To say that she would do the same
Is an entirely unfounded assumption

And It's getting old and it's taking its tole
Do you think I need another lonely night?

I stopped drinking caffeine
I’ve been cutting down on blue light
But this girl is the girl of my dreams
So I still can't sleep at night

She's been stuck in my head
She's my new favourite song
Because I know I'll ruin this
By leaving it on repeat for too long

This girl is far too amazing
For me to stay away from
I know I've got to cut myself off though
Half is worse than none

So I won't message I won't call
I won't think of her at all
Just to see how long it takes me to notice
No matter what I never say
It isn’t going to change
The outcome to be better than hopeless

And It's getting old and it's taking its tole
Do you think I need another lonely night?

I know someday I'll decide
To leave his girl behind
Like I've left behind so many before her
That day I'll dress myself in black
My reflection looking back
Will be pleading to me over and over

Do you think I need another lonely night?
Track Name: As If We're Snowflakes - Fine
It’s crazy how it feels the same without you
I miss your head on my shoulder
No more of the smaller things we used to do
One more lonely my bed calls to me

And I’ve been wanting this shit for so long
It’s hard to believe that you’re really gone

And I’m sick of you asking if I’m fine
Like how I answers gonna ever change your mind
The thought of you just seemed to escape me
Haven’t found much in my mind lately
And I’m done with all the sleepless nights
I’m always wrong but this time I feel right
Dance around the questions like a knife fight
Dodged a bullet now that it’s in hindsight

I miss your fingers resting between mine
My empty room feels just like you
I wanna think straight for just night
Cloudy visions flowing left and right
Track Name: Laundry Week - Lost Lover
She’s done some damage
that I just can’t repair.
I want to rampage,
then I remember to care
once in a while.

I try to forget
but I’m not in control.
I can’t accept it.
Its taken quite a toll
and all the while.

Have the time of your life
and I’ll join you once this strife
I’m having with myself is over.
I’ll put a smile on my face
and do a dance because one day
she’ll just be another lost lover.

I’m feeling better
than I was before.
Then I remember
something she once wore.
Here comes another spiral.

I know I cannot ask
for the world to wait for me.
This is a one man task.
I hope it's clear to see.
This might take a while,

Have the time of your life
and I’ll join you once this strife
I’m having with myself is over.
I’ll put a smile on my face
and do a dance because one day
she’ll just be another lost lover.

It’s not something I can ask for help with.
It’s not like I’m moving a couch.
I have to dive deep down to retrieve myself.
Hear these words coming out of my mouth.

Have the time of your life
and I’ll join you once this strife
I’m having with myself is over.
I’ll put a smile on my face
and do a dance because one day
she’ll just be another lost lover.

Track Name: Psycle - Only Tomorrow Knows
Turn off your mind relax and float down stream
It is not dying, it is not dying
Lay down all thoughts, surrender to the void,
It is shining, it is shining.
Yet you may see the meaning of within
It is being, it is being
Love is all and love is everyone
It is knowing, it is knowing
And ignorance and hate mourn the dead
It is believing, it is believing
But listen to the colour of your dreams
It is not leaving, it is not leaving
So play the game "Existence" to the end
Of the beginning, of the beginning
