Track Name: Broken Compass
People say I'm crazy,
well I don't know what they mean.
'Cause I think I'm just plain lazy,
more than I seem.

And don't tell me to reach my full potential,
'Cause I like different thinking
and don't tell me that I fit in,
'Cause to me, that's not a good thing

(chorus)
Look at plain old me
Tell me what you see
Well it ain't easy thinking creatively
(x2)

All my friends are one or the other,
and they all get along.
But me, I just can't decide.
It's like I'm a broken compass,
swinging and turning.
Don't know what direction I'm heading in.

(chorus)
Track Name: Imagination
Sand falling slowly
From the hourglass
On the mantle piece
And time is a-ticking
Like a clock on the kitchen wall
And I'm going to paint a picture
Of a sunset, on blue water
And wait until the ticking, and the falling is all done

(chorus)
When you're someone with imagination
You can never be bored
You can spend hours on your own
When you're someone with imagination
You can never go wrong
'Cause every idea is a good one, oh yes it is
Ooh ooh ooh, every idea

It's cold, but I've got a blanket
There's no watching the screens today
'Cause I have an idea
For a story full of adventure

(chorus)

Maybe I'll just sit around
Play guitar for awhile
And wait for something to come on out of the air
'Cause I can spend hours
any time, any place
For music
For music

(chorus)
Track Name: Humankind
Wilted plant in the pot, why do they do this to you?
Wilted plant in the pot, why do they do this to you?

Is it a sign of greediness which humankind has?
Is it a sign of craziness which humankind has?
We take but don't give.
We kill but still live.
We take but don't give.
We kill but still live.

There are wars going on. People torn from their families.
There are wars going on. People torn from their families.

Is it a sign of greediness which humankind has?
Is it a sign of craziness which humankind has?
We take but don't give.
We kill but still live.
We take but don't give.
We kill but still live.

There are animals in cages. Never see the wild.
There are animals in cages. Never see the wild.

Is it a sign of greediness which humankind has?
Is it a sign of craziness which humankind has?
We take but don't give.
We kill but still live.
We take but don't give.
We kill but still live.
Track Name: In the Dust
I walked the extra inch, you didn't
Helped them in a pinch, you didn't
Look where you are now.

Confessed all my sins, you didn't.
Pushed myself to the limit,
Look where you are now.

And look where you are now
And look where I am today
No, I am not sorry
'Cause all I have to say is

I am going to a place you'll never be
I am heading to a land you'll never see
I am leaving you behind and I don't mind
to see you in the dust, the dust, the dust (x2)

We both played the music
We wanted to be heard
Well maybe you didn't
How am I to know
Maybe it was a show

I am going to a place you'll never be
I am heading to a land you'll never see
I am leaving you behind and I don't mind
to see you in the dust, the dust, the dust

I am going to a place you'll never be
I am heading to a land you'll never see
Let's count it up
What did you ever give me?

You gave me all the helpless details
and the endless hate mail
I'm leaving you behind
and I don't mind to see you in the dust.

You said honey I'll go far
And you'll stay right here
And if you ever need me, I'll be near
But you never were, you never were
But you didn't go far either
Yeah you never were, you never were
But you didn't go far either.

I am going to a place you'll never be
I am heading to a land you'll never see
I am leaving you behind and I don't mind
to see you in the dust, the dust, the dust (x2)
Track Name: You and Me
When the baby of me falls asleep
It's a sun bleached red that makes a pretty pink
Playing with matches and homework.
On the TTC, I shove on my headphones
Tap my feet, but don't sing along
Tuning the whole world out.

(chorus)
Then you talk too slow
And go to lows
I scream and shout and you pretend that you don't know
We don't apologize
We just let it fly
cuz you and me know not to waste the energy

When I sit still and think about all the things I've lost
Only the thought of sleep keeps me grounded
Cuz you and me can dream any dream that we want
That shouldn't make sense, but still does

(chorus)

And I can stare past the window
To a faraway land
But only
But only
If we let it go
If we let it go
Can you imagine a time before the rain washed away

(chorus)
Track Name: Toronto
Singing while walking down the street
There's lots of people to meet
I'll just say yes to get you out of my hair
'Cause there's lots of things I want to do out there

In the streets of the jungle Toronto, there's always a bigger show
And wouldn't, wouldn't I know, 'cause I've lived here my whole life (my whole life) (x2)

I love the smell of an almost lit match, it's bitter sweet yet not sweet at all
And I love the feeling of coming home to find everything's all right
'Cause seatbelts can trap you more than you think, more than you think.

In the streets of the jungle Toronto, there's always a bigger show
And wouldn't, wouldn't I know, because I've lived here my whole life (my whole life) (x2)
Track Name: Good Time
This could be a big deal,
Or maybe not, I just can't decide
It's up to you, 'cause I don't know what's going on in our minds
'Cause my thoughts, they change all the time
Yeah, they flip like the side of a dime

(chorus)
No I don't got time
No I don't got time
for little things in my life
No I don't got time
No I don't got time
for little things in my life
Yeah you're wasting my time
even though it's a good time
little things in my life
No I don't got time
No I don't got time
Trying to figure out if you're mine

I like your smile and laugh, but I like mine too
And I can't smile 'cause I'm tongue tied around you

(chorus)
