Rockets Away

Rockets Away

BandRockPunk

Any avid listener of old school heavy music will be gripped by the influence of The Clash and Social Distortion. The rebellious 90s edge of Rancid combined with the catchy riffs of pop punk prophets Green Day help to build the natural evolution of Rockets Away’s raging spirit.

Biography

More than fifty concerts in one year, including a transcanadian tour with Ripcordz, one with Dayglo Abortions, the launch of a 7 songs EP, the shooting of a movie (« 3 Saisons » by Jim Donovan, coming out this fall), no one can say that Rockets Away like to take it easy nor that it took time for them to… take off!
And they deserve it! Mixing skills and experience, like they do with The Clash and the new millennium, this punk rock crew has been seen working like crazy on every stage for the past ten years: the leader Alex Stars, voice and guitar, previously of the Ripcordz; Ryan Stick, voice and bass, ex-singer of Judgmental and Evil Boys; and Marc-André Pilon, drums and voice, coming from Les Ordures Ioniques.

Lyrics

Your Time Is Running Out

Written By: By Alexandre Gauthier, Ryan Gelinas & Marc Andre Pilon

YOUR TIME IS RUNNING OUT

I wanna burn the bridge
And open up the doors
Destroy the memories
Of whom you were before

Your time is running out
You live your life in chains
Your time is running out
And you the one to blame
Your time is running out
But you could be free
Take a look and you will see

Now
Don’t wanna lose control
Now
You should know

IT’S YOUR LIFE
IT’S YOUR TIME
BREAK THE BINES
THAT DRAIN YOUR MIND
THAT DRAIN YOUR MIND

I lived a thousand days
In someone else’s skin
You told a thousand lies
You wanted to fit in

Your time is running out
You live your life in chains
Your time is running out
And you the one to blame
Your time is running out
But you could be free
Take a look and you will see

CHORUS

YOUR TIME IS RUNNING OUT

Your time is running out (8)

CHORUS

Cold War

Written By: By Alexandre Gauthier, Ryan Gelinas, Marc Andre Pilon

COLD WAR

We were stuck in a cold war for so long
We were stuck in a cold war
Forgive but can’t forget
That’s no lie

Can’t you see there’s a lesson to be learn
Can’t you see there’s a lesson
That some scars fade in time
Overtime

WE WERE STUCK IN A COLD WAR
WE WERE STUCK IN A COLD
I TOLD YOU ONCE
I TOLD YOU TWICE
THAT’S NO LIE

Take a look inside and you will see
Take a look inside
What’s broken can’t be fixed
In your mind

How many days did you lived full of hate
How many days did you lived
I spent some hating you
That’s no lie

CHORUS

We were stuck in a cold war
We were stuck in a cold
(4)

CHORUS

Black Jack City

Written By: By Alexandre Gauthier, Ryan Gelinas & Marc Andre Pilon

BLACK JACK CITY

There’s no way that I am gonna stay
In a place that brings out the worst in me
Take a look just behind the alleyway
A paradise

You’ll live your life
Like a roll of a dice

I hear a voice and it’s telling me
All bets are good what is gonna be

You’ll live your life
Like a roll of a dice

BLACK JACK CITY TONIGHT
I’M GOING DOWN TO THE
BLACK JACK CITY TONIGHT
I’M GOING DOWN TO THE
BLACK JACK CITY TONIGHT
I’M GOING DOWN TO THE
BLACK JACK CITY TONIGHT

Ha! I saw the sign that’s ahead of me
Take a shot and take in the scenery

You’ll live your life
Like a roll of a dice

Somewhere out there is a place for me
Yeah black jack jack black jack city

You’ll live your life
Like a roll of a dice

CHORUS

BLACK JACK CITY
