You take my breath away, with all the things you say
You take my words away and now I'm left here standing all alone

You try hard, you try hard to impress them
And they look on, they don't even know your name
Name the game, the game you want to play today
It's the same old game


You fucked up, you threw it all away again
Cuz you don't know, what you want from day to day
Point the blame, point the blame back at yourself
It's the same old game


You try to change the world and you never see it's all a game to me
You try to change the world and you never see that it's all a game
Never see that it's all a game to me

    General CommentThis has to be one of my favourite songs. I just love the way his voice sounds.. I dunno, I just think it sounds awesome. This is an amazing band... does anyone know if they have a c.d out yet?

    General CommentI saw a story they did on this band on "MuchNews" the other day and decided I should check them out since they were punk, and Canadian. So far I gotta say they rock, I'm just sad I did't find out about this band sooner! I'm definitely getting thier cd when it comes out.

    General CommentThey played at a concert with Grade and Gob on the 26th in Peterborough and they said that their cd is coming out in the fall. They are amazing live! Well, actually, they are just amazing in general. Plus they're Canadian! Hoorah!

    General CommentYAY MORE CANADIAN PUNK !!
    not by choice kicks some serious ass, but i think the other songs are just as good or better than this one, so i dunno why they chose this to be their first single. oh well its still rawkin.
