about

Wayne Kennedy Ontario

Wayne Kennedy has all the defiant passion and mad vocal energy you would hear with a punk band but performed by strumming the ever-loving-shit out of an acoustic guitar.

Track Name: Holy Water
I walk these streets alone late at night
to try and figure out what's wrong with my life
there's something missing that I can't deny

I walk down these cold empty streets
to find the calling that's out there for me
but you know I'm bitter when it comes to destiny

when I was young I didn't have a care
I went to church but I never said a prayer
I put my faith in the bottom of the bottle
this holy water's getting hard for me to swallow

my dad said to me "son you gotta work hard
get a good job a house and a car
don't waste your time with that shitty guitar"

the holy father didn't give me a lot
a drinking problem is all that I've got
but when I drink you know I feel like the bastard son of god

when I was young I didn't have a care
I went to church but I never said a prayer
I put my faith in the bottom of the bottle
this holy water's getting hard for me to swallow
Track Name: One Of A Kind
when I'm with her my heart beats so much louder
like church bells at the top of the hour
when she speaks it's like an atom bomb
like a force blowing down from above

well I've never felt this
I've never seen this before
oh god I'm losing my mind
this girl is one of a kind

well she never gets lost in the crowd
cause she's got what it takes to stand out
when I'm with her I feel so much stronger
the way she moves I can't take it any longer

well I've never felt this
I've never seen this before
oh god I'm losing my mind
this girl is one of a kind

when she speaks she owns my little heart
she's got me wrapped around her finger right from the start

well I've never felt this
I've never seen this before
oh god I'm losing my mind
this girl is one of a kind
Track Name: Suburban Machine Guns
conformity is the way of the higher class
a well oiled machine that is built to last
it'll break you down it'll kick your ass
it spreads like fire and it grows so fast
kids are victims in this violent game
and parents are the ones that we all blame because

suburban machine guns are locked and loaded
are youth is gone it was stolen
suburban machine guns are locked and loaded
are youth is gone it was stolen

yeah we feel the need the pressure to fit in
we want it to stop but we don't know where to begin
when did standing out finally become a sin?
we're broke and defeated and we're never gonna win
well you know it doesn't matter what we say
we'll wake up tomorrow to another death that day because

suburban machine guns are locked and loaded
are youth is gone it was stolen
suburban machine guns are locked and loaded
are youth is gone it was stolen
Track Name: Old Dogs
we grew up listening to punk rock bands
making noise and saying "fuck the man!"
we used to skip school and drink in the park
sit and strum on our shit guitars
and I remember the day that you died
I couldn't bring myself to say goodbye
I always hoped that we'd grow old together
sit back and laugh as we remembered

old dogs scream at the top of their lungs
singing just as loud as the young punks
old dogs scream at the top of their lungs
singing just as loud as the young punks

as the young punks

well it's been years since you have died
I still can't bring myself to say goodbye
and even though you're dead and gone
your undying soul lives on because

old dogs scream at the top of their lungs
singing just as loud as the young punks
old dogs scream at the top of their lungs
singing just as loud as the young punks

as the young punks
Track Name: Late Nights
we were young we were dumb we were seventeen
we never stopped to think all we did was daydream
rule the world one day at a time
kings and queens in our own minds
never cared about what we did
we drank the beer that tasted like shit
passing out in our neighbors backyard
never gave up never tried to hard

late nights in the car with the radio
we were kids screaming "we don't know where to go"
a full tank of gas and the open road
just looking for a place to call home

we were young we were dumb we were twenty three
we had to work like dogs to make ends meet
I don't know where all our money went
all I know is that is was time well spent
we always laughed when we should have cried
it wasn't us and them it was you and I
getting drunk and dancing in the rain
dry ourselves off and do it all again

late nights in the car with the radio
we were kids screaming "we don't know where to go"
a full tank of gas and the open road
just looking for a place to call home
Track Name: F.T.R.D.
I've been dreaming of the good old days
all the fun we used to have and the noise that we made
well it's been years since I heard that sound
ringing in my ears it was so damn loud

those were the days
two young kids and a choice to make
our hopes and dreams were all we had
the day we left town and never looked back

we said goodbye to our family and friends
we packed up our gear and jumped into that shitty van
we were headed to the city in a punk rock band
and we couldn't really fail because we didn't have a plan

those were the days
two young kids and a choice to make
our hopes and dreams were all we had
the day we left town and never looked back
