Kat Scoleri This is one of the few times I will sit and loop a whole album and not want to press skip. It's addictive to listen to. Favorite track: Surreal.

Track Name: Ultimatum
The first alien abduction
Will be way north in the ocean
We’ll steal all the ice we can
And start the beer production

The next generation
Will drink their future millions
Melted ice in cans of beer
Nice start for an alien invasion
ultimatum, ultimatum
you won’t survive if you don’t stand by our side

If we were to give you the chance to
Would you come with us
Alien abduction
If ever you tell someone about us aliens
They’ll think you’re sick or crazy
They’ll start spreading the word that there’s something wrong with you
And no one knows that we are creeping on them
they’ll start polluting, hustling trying to get the best
The BEST out of life
It’s us that made you what you are, that made you what you are
it’s too late
You’re an alien now

You are aliens now
We will take control

ultimatum, ultimatum
you won’t survive if you don’t stand by our side

The next intervention
Will be through the television
Yellow white wires to your mind
Propaganda, propagation
Practicing procrastination
On the night of the infestation
you’ll be on your tiny screens
you’ll hear us scream

We come from the underground scene
We will take contrôle
We are aliens now
We will take control
Track Name: Keep Your Daily Job
Mister Creative was minding his own business
that morning when he got a call from work
-Hey! Where are you? You were supposed to clock in at eight…
Oh not today, I don’t feel that well
He hung up and kept on playing
Hung up and kept on playing

Keep your daily job
You got to keep calm, keep your daily job
Keep your daily job
You got to keep calm, keep your daily job

And the next paycheck won’t cover his expenses
He’ll be hustlin’
But it had to be done
He didn’t quite have the time to put down the tune that’d been stuck in his head
He hung up and kept on playing
Hung up and kept on playing

Keep your daily job
You got to keep calm, keep your daily job
And everyone knows better and all of them will tell you
You got to keep calm, keep your daily job
Track Name: Renata Stings
Under the bridge
A wooden one
Way too close to the train tracks
Was the youth carrying plastic guns
Hanging upside down
Head above the ground
Way too close to the train tracks
Was the youth of the rising sun

15 years have passed since the rise of the depression of the youth
The taste of addiction lingers on your tongue
She’s amongst you
Tattooed on your brain, in your eyes in your veins, so
Sink your teeth in deep
Sink your teeth in deep
-Baptise the needle
On the limb
To humour the sin
Our medicine
My old friends sing Renata, Renata
Pay tribute to Renata, Renata
Pay tribute to Renata Stings
In the thrill and heat

Under the bridge
A wooden one
Way too close to the train tracks
Was the youth doing plastic drugs

We’ve all had that moment of weakness when we needed that someone the most, and if you haven’t, you will soon enough. When everyday makes you feel like a ghost ‘till sun down, ‘till sun down please hang around.. And HE or SHE will stand by you then you’ll think WOW I finally found someone who cares, but it’s not true, they’re all the way confused with themselves as well. They’ll inflict you pain, inflict you pain has a momentary response, cause all they are ‘re fireworks, beautiful at first until they burst and fade away

Under the bridge
A wooden one
Way too close to train tracks
Was the girl on a plastic run
Under the brigde
A wooden one
We found her close to the train tracks
We found her close to the train tracks
Track Name: Lean on Me
Today it feels like
A copy-paste of yesterday
Could you tell me what time it is
I’m burning out of focus
Track Name: Rainbow Man
Here’s a few advice
From a well-known liar
Always have the same shirt on
You can wear more than one
People, purple is the key color
For a nuclear armor
Words from a well-know homeless liar
He hit his head on the ground, he said
He changed his name for
Rainbow Man
Reminding everyone
That it has to rain from times to times
For the sun
To shine on
Us
So everyone can keep on
Enjoyin’ it. Enjoy it
Rainbow man, reminding everyone
That it’s not such a bad world after all

Here’s a few advice
To prevent the war
Carry a bag of candy
Says the lunatic with a smile
Add some water
Use the candy color
And draw this perfect world
On the side walk
To make people feel better
He hit his head on the ground, he said
He changed his name for
Rainbow Man
Reminding everyone
That it has to rain from times to times
For the sun
To shine on
Us
So everyone can keep on
Enjoyin’ it. Enjoy it
Rainbow man, reminding everyone
That it’s not such a bad world after all

Here’s a few advice from a dying man
Happiness is in your head
In your head
we never even heard of him again
Rainbow Man
Reminded everyone
That it’s not such a bad world after all
Track Name: Work Song
Yellow lion eyes and bones
Little Amy Jones
Leaning on yard side fence
Sipping on a coke glass bottle
Waiting for the sun to dry
She just learned her dad has died

Young and wise
Young and wise
Watching the factory men
Pretending he's one of them
Young and wise
Young and wise
The workers knows she won’t leave
‘Till she gets a job or a second bottle

*and this is what they said

Whistle the work song
Missy Jones
Whistle the work song
‘Till the day is done
Whistle the work song
For Mister Jones
Whistle the work song for
Modern slavery

Young and wise
Young and wise
Welcome to the bottom of the food chain
Ladies & gentleman, please be welcome
To the bottom of the food chain

Whistle the work song
Missy Jones
Whistle the work song
‘Till the day is done
Whistle the work song
For Mister Jones
Whistle the work song for
Modern slavery
Track Name: Slingshot Blues
She hugged me, smiled and left
Saying that the next stop is closer to my place
Times have changed, said the nightshift driver
In my days, I would've made it to her door, at least
I know, I'm fucked pretty and it feels like a cheap script
Oh girl, the girl is taken, I said

Wiseman, Jazzman, this is called the Slingshot Blues
She got me in the eye and I keep
The pebbles in my shoes
The girl is taken, I said

His silence says it all, I'd be better off running
But it’s hard to run with a painful passion
He wishes me a goodnight and leaves me in the desert of the Montreal cold
I'm a little high and here I am texting her, what just happened, and I know
I know I'm fucked pretty and it feels like a cheap script
Oh girl, the girl is taken, I said

Wiseman, Jazzman, this is called the Slingshot Blues
She got me in the eye and I keep
The pebbles in my shoes
The girl is taken I said

I made it home alive, after a twenty-minute walk of Beatles songs, shouting
And made sure to wake the neighbourhood up and I'm smiling
‘Cause I'll get to see her face tomorrow and I know
I know I'm fucked pretty
and it feels like a cheap script
Oh girl, the girl is taken, I said

Wiseman, Jazzman, this is called the Slingshot Blues
She got me in the eye and I keep
The pebbles in my shoes
Wiseman, Jazzman, this is called the Slingshot Blues
She got me in the eye and I keep
The pebbles in my shoes
Track Name: Surreal
I don’t want to be a bad example here, but I’m calling sick
To spend that time that I don’t have to be with you
Hey hey hey, I’ve had it, I
Don’t care what people say
You don’t care about what I say
Death silence or laughter
Life’s surreal, life’s surreal
So let me do my thing and make everybody dance

You just have to leave
This wasted world behind
Life surreal
And everybody Dance

You just have to leave
This wasted world behind
Life Surreal
So just free your mind
You just have to leave
This wasted world behind
Life Surreal
So just free your mind

Roaming around in my own apartment
Like a monkey in a cage, life’s a maze, it amazes me
I know the key and the way out is my own rage
So I keep the old luggage ready
Going up, turn it down, to the beat, to the sound
Going round & around to the sound of music
Let’s bring our sex to the ground on a blanket
Fun ride on a magic carpet

You just have to leave
This wasted world behind
Life Surreal
So just free your mind
You just have to leave
This wasted world behind
Life Surreal
So just free your mind

You just have to leave
This wasted world behind
Life Surreal
So just free your mind
You just have to leave
This wasted world behind
Life Surreal
So just free your mind

O.K.
I don’t want to be a bad example here, but I’m calling sick
To spend that time that I don’t have to be with you
Hey hey hey, I’ve had it, I
Don’t care what people say
You don’t care about what I say
Death silence or laughter
Life’s surreal, life’s surreal
So let me do my thing and make everybody dance

Young love, ten years of footsteps we’ve made in alternate directions
Nothing but a distant spark, the smallest star you can depict with a telescope
Pas de pause, pas de froid, another week’s done
J’en ai mal au coeur du stress, de la peur, je sais pas
Rien de mieux à faire
Life’s Surreal
And everybody dance
Track Name: 1939
In a no man's land your ears go numb
Earth is jaded of our footsteps
We reached a silent era
Philosophers are out of words
We did wrong

To slow down the eventuality
To slow it down wee
We keep peace in mind
Let’s keep peace in mind

I'd like to dedicate this song to the dinosaurs
I wonder if they had any
Expectations for their after life
A better version of earth with
Saturated forest and colors

We won’t need no meteor storm to get there
We'll finish up the job, we'll make it on our own
I'd like to sympathize with the dinosaurs
We will see you soon
see you soon
We did wrong

To slow down the eventuality
To slow it down wee
We keep peace in mind
Let’s keep peace in mind
