"No Cars Go" as written by Win Butler and Regine Chassagne....
(Hey!)
(Hey!)

We know a place where no planes go
We know a place where no ships go

(Hey!) No cars go
(Hey!) No cars go
Where we know

We know a place no space ships go
We know a place where no subs go

(Hey!) No cars go
(Hey!) No cars go
Where we know

(Hey!)
(Hey!)
(Cars go!)

(Hey!) Us kids know
(Hey!) No cars go
Where we know

Between the click of the light and the start of the dream
Between the click of the light and the start of the dream
Between the click of the light and the start of the dream
Between the click of the light and the start of the dream

Little babies, let's go!
Women and children, let's go!
Old folks, let's go!
Don't know where we're going

    General CommentEveryone here mustn't have spent too much time in school. Your guesses as to the meanings of the song are very far-fetched in light of the true meaning. It's about the closing of a General Motors plant in Oshawa, Ontario, and the disastrous effects the closing had on the city (think of Flint, Michigan). The "click of the light" is the final switching off of the lights in the plant on the workers' last day; and the "start of the dream" is everyone wondering what they're going to do next. It's from the perspective of the children of the workers.
