about

Broken Glass Kids Toronto, Ontario

Broken Glass Kids are a folk-punk duo based out of Toronto. They sing songs about cabins, running in one direction or the other, and the kind of boredom that only the suburbs can ignite. Both members have musical projects of their own, but when they create music together the product is greater than the sum of it's parts. ... more

Track Name: Burn the Map
You're content and busy, I'm busy and bored 

and I'm threatened by all these possessions I hoard

Kick it all to the curb, I don't want it no more

I don't want it no more, I don't want it no more

Quit you're job, quit you're job, and let's go kick rocks

Bring the dog, bring the dog, and a clean pair of socks

Let me out, get me out, get me out of this box

Get me out of this box, get me out of this box



We're bound by these tides, back and forth home and back again

Wait let's rewind, can't we play this part again

Ebb and flow, come and go, hit the road, where is home

I don't know, anymore



Your safety isn't real, I know that you feel it

You're just biding you're time, you know I'm still healing 

We've both had enough rest and I've caught my breath

and this is not a test, no this is not a test

Take a risk, take a chance

Let's move into a van

Burn the map, burn the map

We'll craft a secret plan

Sell your stuff, sell your stuff

We've got more than enough, we've got more than enough

We've got more than enough



We're bound by these tides, back and forth home and back again

Wait let's rewind, can't we play this part again

Ebb and flow, come and go, hit the road, where is home

I don't know, anymore



Take a knife to the tedium of this routine
s
Spit it up, spit it out

Don't choke on your ennui

There's a creature a-sleepin' down inside of me

Wake it up, wake it up
let it loose, set it free

Stir the pot feed the fire, concede your desire

Realize your intent, tell me what you require

Let it simmer and stew, I won't give up on you

I won't give up on you, I won't give up on you



We're bound by these tides, back and forth home and back again

Wait let's rewind, can't we play this part again

Ebb and flow, come and go, hit the road, where is home

I don't know, anymore
Track Name: Down With It
Coulda sold my soul for a couple of bucks
And not feeling like I'm down on my luck all the time
But where's the fun in not hating wasting
All of your time and your life working a nine to five
You're either in or you're out
Or you're up or you're down
Or you're flat on your face

Sometimes I feel like shit
For clinging to a structure
that takes everyone down with it
The faster it falls, the harder you grip

Haven't worked a dime in well over a year
And hell I gotta say it makes no difference
With every kick down you make and every purchase
Keeps on spinning the wheel they got it locked down real perfect
Free to do what you want
Yeah free to sit on yer ass and pretend
Like what yer doing's much better

Sometimes I feel like shit
For clinging to a structure
that takes everyone down with it
The faster it falls, the harder you grip

You could work your way up or you could make it
To the top of the ladder what you're doing don't matter
Don't take control of your life cuz you could give it up
To somebody else who'd get to use it much better
Yer only worth what you make
For a reason you hate and there ain't no escape

Sometimes I feel like shit
For clinging to a structure
that takes everyone down with it
The faster it falls, the harder you grip
