Burn the Map

lyrics

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

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
