Yes you were dealt a pretty bad hand At least you got these legs to stand on Like a stone to a sword you got moral support I can't touch Now you need something to hold on to And I continue givin' you bad advice There's liberties in this life that I overuse, I'm over due But I'll keep talkin' to myself, talking' to myself till it's true And I'll just talk about myself, talk about myself but how are you? How do you do? Well I finally found my heart, sewn right on the sleeve of your second-hand shirt I ain't got no cash so I try and make a dash like a fool They said "Where you going son? We saw just what you done. Don't play it cool." I got caught more or less. I'm obvious I guess, there's your proof There's your proof As long as you know that I love you As long as you know in your heart that it's true I'm not a dishonest man I'm just trying to do everything that I can You don't have to hide. I'm right by your side. You don't have to hide. Running in a spot, shoelaces in a knot, I might fall I've been sitting here at home, staring at the phone waiting for your call I wrote you this song
Would it ease your mind to know this wave won't break without some sacrifice standing in the way? Here they come to stand in a row This sympathy just needs a habit Another monkey falls down the rabbit hole It looks bad but I can turn it around I'll make it shine, so bright Ran too far in the dead of night Even in the dark we could not hide It seems complicated so I won't instigate it I can tell just from your eyes Now don't you feel better? Don't you feel right at home?
Morning Sun 02:42
Morning sun is shining on your face And I'm a-wasting time and space Around me while I stand in place I try to cut to the chase But I can't move, no If I knew what I know right now, back then I'd find a different way to the same end Morning sun is shining on your face I'm a-running in the human race And falling down behind You while you stand in line I think about you all the time You know I do, it's true Morning sun is shining on your face
Disappointed by everything Something's gotta turn out right Your beliefs at least they try to see the good things in life But we don't ever stop moving around And we'll burn this whole thing down to the ground I can't figure out, just what it is that we want Won't you name your price? I get up in the morning After tossing and turning all night It's not out of my mind it's out of my sight So I'll burn this whole thing down to the ground And you wonder why I'm not settling down Because I can't figure out just what it is that I want Won't you name your price? We're hard pressed to fall apart into perfect little pieces To make it easier to rebuild Won't you name your price? Disappointed by everything.
Can't make up your mind and it's not a tough decision at all All my progress slowed down to a crawl Can't you see I'm ready to go? Can't we just get on with the show tonight? Don't you dare look back It's only you, you can't forgive Let go of your past It does not mean that you must forget Flawed design, we best try again But we put it together and it falls apart Some things are worth fighting for Guess I'll never know for sure No one said you're designed for this No one said you're defined by this No one said you should die for this I swear

Big Name Actors Nova Scotia

Big Name Actors are a rock trio bridging the gap between the early nineties scenes of Seattle and Halifax. Catchy and upbeat but with an abrasive dark side.

Big Name Actors continue to please Toronto audiences with their unique grungey power-pop sound and their tightly performed sets of dynamically charged songs.
