about

CANNING Chicago, Illinois

We deem to explore our music and portray a song in its rightful place, at least for that given moment. Through the years, it’s been noticed that many times we do not play the song, moreover, with the elasticity of time...the song will play us...

Track Name: Believe It
Come on, show me whatcha got, got
Slip inside, get on in from the outside
Come on, show me whatcha got, got
Slip on in to the inside

You don't wanna see it
You'll never believe it

I can't blame your hesitations
I can't blame your decisions
Make up your mind

Like today there's no other way to play
You don't wanna see it
You'll never believe it

Come on, show me whatcha got, got
I don't care, it's time to make your move
Come on, show me whatcha got, got
Oh, whatcha got, got

Like today there's no other way to play
You don't wanna see it
You'll never believe it
Track Name: Poor Boy
And here we said that you could never play
With the words that meant so much to you
So many times you tried to get your way
As we left you building your hate

The child that you hold so dear inside
Never truely liked us anyway
And here we always played without oh you
‘Till the sun decides to go away
Sulking from the words, so cold

And here you wanted a breath of fresh air
That I couldn’t give to you
Like so many times before
Proven through and through

How could we be so hard, oh on the boy
Such a nasty way to live in hate
How could we be so mean, oh to the boy
He offered us so much we wouldn’t take
He offered us so much it’s our mistake

Why do I wonder where you’ve been
When I’ve got so many troubles of my own
Would you care to listen
Where do you get off spelling it out
Talking about right here let’s figure it out
Right now, let’s figure it out

And here you wanted a breath of fresh air
That I couldn’t give to you
Like so many times before
Proven through and through
Track Name: My
Sleep some tonight, don't you worry
Life's not anything your meant to not realize
I'll get the lights, you close your eyes
Soon it'll be time to awake, to live your dreams

Twice I see and yes twice I do
Twice you've looked and I still haven't pulled through
So many ways, so many days
So many times before I get it my, myself
My, myself

In life we just might build a future
Together our hopes and dreams we fantasize
It's a reality we can calculate
Together we're destined to live our dreams
These dreams, your dreams

Why can't I seem to lift this haze
It's blocken the world from your view
Like a spell that's cast on you
Here's a melody ta break your blues

Sleep more tonight, don't you wake
there's no reason ta twist and turn
I'm right here sitting by your side
Watching all over you all by my, myself
All by myself, all by myself
Track Name: Sliver
With another day, I’ll arrive
Maybe we’ll dance, tonight
Tease a little, one to the other
When will we ever realize

Now we’re trapped in the light

So many times, I find I’m hanging on
To what I can’t explain
Could it possibly be your hand
A touch held so dear, so near

Would you like to play around this world with me
Would you like to play around this world with me
Would you like to take my hand and play around this world with me
Would you like to understand and play around my world with

Oh with me
Oh with, me
Track Name: Find Away
I find myself looking, staring down, stumblin’ around

I find myself just tryin ta, ta find a way to you

Please don’t misunderstand, when I can’t speak to you

In this life I call mine, just tryin ta, ta find away
Track Name: Johnny
Once I saw a face in the dark, he turned and looked at me
So broken, so serene, you know, might as well be me
So alone in his own world, counting the paces between
The first shot, as he fell between the seamless seams, but

Johnny boy
Wasn’t quite like the rest
Just a little complicated

So Johnny he left for town, on his own two feet he went
Passing the miles by, in hopes of a new life he found
Nothing but more of the same, it’s not what you would think
To be true in a world like this, in a world like this, then

Johnny, he cried, he claimed
There’s got to be another day for this and for me

So I’ll give you my hand in hopes that you’ll understand
That he’s just a regular ordinary man
Living in his empty yet hopeful life, he’s lead only to believe
Ta fall silently asleep, but

Johnny Boy
Wasn’t quite like the rest
Just a little too devoted

So here it all ends, he’s simply a boy
He’s clinging to his best defense for, for awhile
Johnny, who is it you are hiding from
Track Name: Seven
Why do you say, that the world isn’t ever really, really what you thought it was
Why do I try, ta change your mind cause your so lost in it all
Why do I see everything but a mind with many capabilities
Why do you deny, your place in this space here you wanna cry.
Could you ever be my friend, all the possibilities

Do ya hear, my words, ringing clear now

Then I tought that you would never care
Would you, could you
Then I saw that you were never there
So blind, so fried
Then I saw that time was on my side
Night and day, your lying anyway

Would ya like to know, a little something about ta grow
About ta go
About ta go
About ta go
About ta go
About ta

What do you mean, when you glare at me with those staring deep, glary eyes
Only another way to show, that inside outside can’t you ever really grow

Did you ever think, I wouldn’t notice
Track Name: It All
Before I set off to go can I leave you with just one, just one kiss
It's to show you my other side
Thoughts for the way you look at me with
With those clear blue eyes, mid summer’s sky

It won't be long till the winter's cold rain and snow has come and gone
Ah yes, it's come and gone

But looking up, up ahead I can't clearly see
Could it be the trouble that I've been waiting ta meet
A distant image I’ve been seeing in my troubled sleep
Why won't you now oh step up before me now
And tell me what it is that your so frightened to repeat
Oh could this, yes could this, oh could this be the last time we meet

Why do we hide what it is that we should really say
We've built this silence here for, for so many days
For so many days, here we go

Why can't I, say what it is that you mean to me
Why can’t I, tell the world what ya mean to me, I
I wanted it all, all from you
I wanted it all, all from you, from

Why can't I, I say what it is that you mean to me
Why can’t I, I tell the world what ya mean to me, I
I wanted it all, all from you
I wanted it all, all from you, I

I wanted it all, I wanted it all

I wanted it all
I wanted it all
Track Name: Solitude
Once in a while I get shown so many places I might no, no never know
Like the day that I came running with the thoughts of yet another place
Inside myself, I can’t run, reaching out holding on, left undone
Crazy’s all I hear, relax ya know your time is getting near

In my heart I cry
Yes I cry

Now I see myself in such a way, that I really don’t care don’t
Don’t care to say hey, to what it is that drives me to my place
Breath in, silence all around
Ya know it’s here I’m going
It’s here I’m coming down

Now I find that sometimes I don’t, don’t really care
What it’s all about, so much useless talk
Breath in, realize your fascinations
Ya know that life’s too short, don’t let it pass by

Now I see myself in such a way that I really don’t care don’t
Don’t care to say hey, to what it is that drives me to my place
Breath in, silence all around
Ya know it’s here I’m going
It’s here I’m coming down

In my heart I cry
Yes I cry, tears and tears
In my heart I
In my heart I cry
Track Name: Could We
When the world was better than it could ever be
When the world was brighter through your seams
When the world was a place of mystery, could we

In the face of another tribulation, I fight through
In the face of another situation, I play the fool, just for you
Just for you.

As another truth falls far from your desire
As another drop painstakingly fills
As another hit takes us, we’re drawn apart
And it’s here we continue, continue to realize

Find another place in your heart to dwell
Our shall I say, defend
Just once before, before we come to an end
Could we possibly sing of a better place maybe, of a better time

When the world was better than it could ever be
When the world was brighter through your seams
When the world was a place of mystery, could we
Seemed like, like my last lover said, could we, she said be true

As another truth falls far from your desire
As another drop painstakingly fills
As another hit takes us, we’re drawn apart
And it’s here we will follow, forever seeking the end
