Agent K(ahunasan) The best thing about defunct punk-pop bands is that even though they are long gone; their ART lives on with Bandcamp.
Such is the case with Canada's All Systems Go.
They deserved better; but add them to the pile of
hopeful" bands dashed upon the rocks on the business side of music.
Prime example of Pop-Punk & classic Easycore style.
Awesome sounds to get "speeding" tickets to!
Turn it Up loud & Drive Fast!
RIP ASG! Favorite track: Reach For The Sky.

Austin There's a lot of music like this on Bandcamp. Cutting through the okay stuff for the great stuff is a fantastic feeling. Like the feeling I got when I found this gem of a release. Favorite track: The Ground Between Us.

mitchattitude These guys are from Canada which is no surprise as there are so many great bands coming from Canada at the moment we don't know what to do with them all! Favorite track: Reach For The Sky.

Track Name: Sinner
Am I awake or am I just dreaming?
Will I ever get to feel the sun again?
What an awful waste, such a big disgrace, says the ones I love.
Know your place.
Can you hear me?
I'm screaming.
I'll do what I want and leave no one to judge me.

We drink.
We smoke.
I know that I'm a sinner.
Don't deny you live it too.
I can see you don't approve.
Setting standards I will never live up to.
But I will not change for you.

This is the life that I choose to lead.
Im not afraid of what is to come at all.
I am as free as I'll ever be.
We are all just victims of substance.
You'll never know real life looking through small town eyes.
I'll be hoping that some day you'll come around.
Maybe you'll realize you're living a complete lie.
It's something you've got to find out on your own.
You'll never know real life looking through small town eyes.

This life is what i make of it, its not for you to say.
I thought that part was obvious.
Ill take it day by day.
I cant be something that I'm not.
I'm just a small town boy.
Straighten up, clean up your act and always stay poised.

We drink.
We smoke.
I know that I'm a sinner.
Don't deny you live it too.
I can see you don't approve.
Setting standards I will never live up to.
But I will not change for you.
Track Name: Reach For The Sky
If we're going anywhere it will never be down.
This is the life that we're living and this is our sound.
These words are our own and this is our voice.
Our hearts play the chorus of the outsiders choice.
We are all warriors in this battle of life.
I do this for the rush, It makes me feel so alive.
Pull yourself together and stay strong to the end.
We'll catch you when you fall.
We're your very best friends.

Stand your ground and take your place.
Move ahead and keep the faith.
I have lost.
I have suffered.
But I won't be broken again.

I want you to see the world like me.
Full of promise and all your wildest dreams.
I believe that the sky is the limit.
So put your faith in me.
Sing it loud and let the world hear you now.
Never be afraid or let them tear you down.
Just believe that the sky is the limit and it will set you free.

I see you down but I will lend a hand to pull you up and it will set you free.

I have lost.
I have suffered.
But I won't be broken again.

I want you to see the world like me.
Full of promise and all your wildest dreams.
I believe that the sky is the limit.
So put your faith in me.
Sing it loud and let the world hear you now.
Never be afraid or let them tear you down.
Just believe that the sky is the limit and it will set you free.

I'm the only way to escape the fate.
Come along with me lets soar to sky above.
Its that kind of love that I've fallen in once more.
Track Name: You Mean Nothing To Me
I keep hearing these words spewing from your mouth.
Your poison tongue pushing me down.
I never hear what you say, don't give a shit what you do.
Because I'm living for me and never for you.

No point in wasting my time on this.

Don't you try to break me down with your false words of hope and lies.
I see right through it all.
So ill tell you one more time.
You can see it in my eyes.
You mean nothing to me.

Like a crashing wave in and out of my life.
Right out from under my feet, you took away my life.
When all that we built was torn to the ground.
Ill take this knife from my back.
I guess I'll see you around.

What is life when the blind can't see?
When we were young we had such big dreams.
Thrown away for a chance at fate.
Side by side, now were face to face.

Don't you try to break me down with your false words of hope and lies.
I see right through it all.
So ill tell you one more time.
You can see it in my eyes.
You mean nothing to me.

Close your eyes.
Think of what you just said.
Reminisce on things that could have been.
Track Name: The Ground Between Us
You wont be my anchor.
A million miles from home.
I'm bound to find a better place that I can call my own.
My heart will stop sinking when I stand on solid ground.
It's better to have it end like this than have it never end at all.

I'm never coming back for you.
All I ever do is lose.
I'm so broken and bruised.
There's nothing left for me.
You've broken all my dreams and all I could have been.

You wont be my anchor.
A million miles from home.
I'm bound to find a better place that I can call my own.
My heart will stop sinking when I stand on solid ground.
It's better to have it end like this than have it never end at all.

What did you expect this to be?
I'm done with playing games and taking all the blame.
We should be apart.
I wish I knew this from the start.
So from the bottom of my heart.

You wont be my anchor.
A million miles from home.
I'm bound to find a better place that I can call my own.
My heart will stop sinking when I stand on solid ground.
It's better to have it end like this than have it never end at all.

My heart will stop sinking when I stand on solid ground.
I'm running faster than I've ever run before.

You wont be my anchor.
A million miles from home.
I'm bound to find a better place that I can call my own.
My heart will stop sinking when I stand on solid ground.
It's better to have it end like this than have it never end at all.

You promised that you need me like the stars need the moon.
It couldn't be any clearer now.
It changed for the worse so soon.
But you'll see when it's over.
By then I'll be long gone.
You'll hurt like you did those days before I came along.

Goodbye.
I'm making my way into the sunset.
Its calling my name again and I'm never coming back.
Track Name: Just Breathe
Fate settles in and I'm struggling to keep my head leveled out.
I compare to where I've been but I swear that this is by far the worst.
You're so damn good at these sick little games.
And I'll be just fine if I remember to just breathe.

I watched you turn away.
It was so unbecoming.
Tell me to my face that you never really loved me.

You don't even care if I'm still breathing.
Without lungs inside my chest to hold my last breath.
I've got to say what I have to say, I need it.
You wouldn't give me the time of day.
I guess that's the price I pay.

I stand on the edge of this perfect nightmare.
Trapped within this dying affair.
Your cowardice has set me straight.
What I questioned before is no longer vague.
I'll keep running this shit.
Watch me stand.
Above all else, I was still your friend.

I watched you turn away.
It was so unbecoming.
Tell me to my face that you never really loved me.

Now I find it's hard to just keep breathing.
Without lungs inside my chest to hold my last breath.
I've got to say what I have to say, I need it.
You wouldn't give me the time of day.
You can't stand the sight of my face.

I wish I could scream but my lungs have been turning blue and frozen to the touch.
And I would speak if I could breathe.
The only way of feeling is to see you in my dreams when I'm asleep.
I'll never be the same person again.
How could you be so cold to me and turn away as if I wasn't real.

But I will stand, I can breathe again.
Just breathe, breathe for me.
It's not as bad as your heart makes it seem.
