[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

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

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

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?

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

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. (2X)

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
