Track Name: Adam Hill - Hello Ottawa
Hello, Ottawa.
You are just as cold as I remember you.
I said "hello, Ottawa"
You remain indifferent to me as always
Hey, hey hey hey,
Hey, hey hey-lo
Ottawa

Remind me again why I ever come visit
When all I ever get is a blizzard of a headache
Your snowflakes and icicles push me to the limit
But I always forget, so the next trip's a new mistake

Hello, Ottawa.
You are just as cold as I remember you.
I said "hello, Ottawa"
You remain indifferent to me as always
Hey, hey hey hey,
Hey, hey hey-lo
Ottawa

Your cold clammy hands reaching into my soul
I know you're not made of stone, but you're covered up in ice
Your blank staring eyes leave me frigid to the core
I wish I could leave you alone, but you're such a lovely vice

Hello, Ottawa.
You are just as cold as I remember you.
I said "hello, Ottawa"
You're still staying cold and indifferent, just as I recall,
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hello
You're still just as cold,
Hey, Ottawa!
Track Name: Mike Skliar - In America
“In America”

In America, the meals are super sized
in America, everything comes with fries
in America, we still do like our daddies done
If you’re crazy in America you can still get a gun

In America, math and science scores are slipping
In America, the poor are poor, the rich are double dipping
In America, we remember when we were number one
If you’re crazy in America you can still get a gun

the macho myth of the gun slinger
a hero saving the day
but reality’s a crazy kid with a trigger finger
blowing someone else’s head away

In America, old traditions die slow
The NRA calls the tune, no lawmaker says ‘no’
Insanity’s just a shot away, if you’ll pardon the pun
If you’re crazy in America you can still get a gun

Track Name: Matt Blick - Let's Build An Airport
Let's build an airport and let's fly away
If we put our minds to it we could finish today
These people round here are as deep as the clouds
And they don't understand anything that isn't glued to the ground

But we're rootless and artless and freer than birds
Let's not march to the abattoir just like the rest of the herd.
Forget Stansted, forget JFK.
There's a whole world of difference Between a runway
And running away.
We're not running away...

Doesn't the sunset attract you? Don't the horizon look grand?
Couldn't you just catch that burning ball in the fist of one hand?
I'll clear you for take off and you can clear me
Then we'll cross every ocean and be back for our tea

Let's build an airport and let's fly away
If we put our minds to it we could finish today
These people round here are as deep as the clouds
And they don't understand anything that isn't glued to the ground

Track Name: T. C. Elliott - Happy You Are Mine
Every morning when I get up early
You're still sleeping in that bed
I have to leave you all alone
I wonder if you'll be okay
If you'll be all right without me
I can't wait to get back home

Please don't ever say you think we're through
Cuz I'm yours and you are mine
And if I were to ever say I goodbye to you
You'd know I've lost my mind
Cuz I'm happy you are mine

Sometimes I can't help but think
I was lucky to ever find you
I got the best part of the deal
Sometimes I just try to tell you
But I don't have the words
to let you know just how I feel


Please don't ever say you think we're through
Cuz I'm yours and you are mine
And if I were to ever say I goodbye to you
You'd know I've lost my mind
Cuz I'm happy you are mine
Track Name: Hoopshank - FAWMer Foibles
Mike Skliar
A cat keeps stealing his shoes
You can see him running barefoot
On the streets of old New York
With his faded leather top hat
And his gorgeous green dungarees

Charlie Cheney
An extra hand growing out of his head
Should have left those chemicals well alone
When tending to his plants
With his charming love of apricots
And the helicopter pad on his car

FAWMer foibles
FAWMer foibles
Everything's going crazy
Like a silly Sunday afternoon
With Errol Elumir on the phone
And Sapient stuck up the chimney again

Johnny Cashpoint
The smell of dog food is getting him down
And all because the brewery
Is being experimental
Putting things into the lager
That really have no business being there

FAWMer foibles
FAWMer foibles
Everything's going crazy
Like a silly Sunday afternoon
With Errol Elumir on the phone
And Sapient stuck up the chimney again
