"Canada vs America" as written by and Justin Peroff Andrew Whiteman....
I'm from the city of love
We don't feel loved
So closed, shut down

I met a broken cliff
Heartbroke feeling
So close, shut down
I don't want this to change
It's nice to breathe in
So closed, shut down

Big guns are comin' out
Big guns are comin' out
Big guns, big guns

Don't worry one of us
Children breathe in
So closed, shut down
Kids of America
Seeming to believe in
So closed, shut down
Damn you America
Bloody feeling
Go shut down

I'm from the city of love
We all don't feel loved
So closed, shut down
I don't want this to change
Tired of being loved
So go shut down

Big guns are coming out
(Damn you America)
Big guns are coming out
(I'm from the city of love)
Big guns are coming out
Big guns, big guns

    General Commentthis is my best guess at what the lyrics sound like to me:

    your smile's like a cigarette
    hooked on a feeling
    so throw yourself down

    your smile is a broken cliff
    and your heart's full of cement
    so throw yourself down

    i don't want this chance (?)
    minus the breathing (?)
    so throw yourself down

    the big guns are coming out
    the big guns are coming out
    the big guns are coming out
    the big guns, the big guns, the big guns

    i don't want to live
    children are freezing
    so throw yourself down

    ???
    leave me for believing
    so throw yourself down

    ???
    blood and the bleeding
    so throw yourself down

    the big guns are coming out
    the big guns are coming out
    the big guns are coming out
    the big guns, the big guns, the big guns

    your smile's like a cigarette
    it relies on this feeling
    so throw yourself down

    but i can't throw this chance
    mine is this healing
    so throw yourself down

    the big guns are coming out
    the big guns are coming out
    the big guns are coming out
    the big guns, the big guns


    i have no idea.. and i wish i did.

    General CommentThese lyrics are nowhere close to the actual ones, which, is sort of easy to hear if you listen closely to the inflection of kevin drew's voice on the EP recording..

    General CommentWell, uh... thanks for giving us the lyrics to "All My Friends," versatilestyle87... but I think the song we were talking about here was Canada vs. America.

    General CommentI don't know why Kevin Drew would take any shots at Amy Millan or Stars with the "Your ex-lover is not dead..." part, considering both are fronting major label success now. I know at the Indie Awards in Toronto last month a lot of bands were badmouthing Kevin and BSS for being some elitist pricks...that including one of the member of Stars.
