Slurry Toronto, Ontario

Slurry is a mesh of ruminations on the radiant noise of

Toronto's independent music scene.

Track Name: Given
Moved away, all the same
I can't build this fire in another place
Lots of the people downtown got something to say:
"Nice jacket! Where'd ya get it?"
"I can't take credit, I just wear it..."

It's a given you're gonna get it together (x2)

Tadpoles in the cave,
now we're all graduated
Hoppin' off the sign on the edge of the forest line
"Nice hang-time, where's yr landing?"
"Just west of the Skydome in assigned seating."

Lots of the people downtown got something say,
Lots of the people down had something erased
(x2)

"Nice Jaguar, where'd ya cop it?"
"Just out of the tree trunk in bad weather."
The unspoken, ominous spectre of disappearance,
I can't become it, I'm just livin' it up

It's a given you're gonna get it together (x4)

If I die alone out there, I'm not scared, I'm not scared
I'm just happy I got to learn with you (x3)
Track Name: So So
They say you do it to yourself
But they don't help
"Just do it" they said,
"Press that button on the back of your head"
So, I did at least reach for it (x2)

Well I'm surprised that you didn't pick up
So unlike you
Well I could make like sheep and just hang up
But I'll give you a little something to listen to

Whatya do today, how'd yr thing go?
I thought it was so so
How much did you save? What a steal though!
They want you to consume they want to consume you

Everybody has an opinion

Soso? How so? Uh oh!

People like hearing but they hate to listen
To everybody else that tells them what to do
It's like the greatest Canadian exhibition
Of every movie ever sent to DVD or blue ray, whatever hey!

My mother rolls her eyes out of her head -
And they stayed that way!
Nobody cares about your dream last night;
Unless you're gunna bring it to life (x2)

Whatya do today, how'd yr thing go?
