Toronto, Canada. Music To Defeat Wal-Marts

Sprawl-Busters received the following email this week: "You don't know us, but we're a Canadian roots band called the Dust Poets. We just released a CD with a song on it that we think you might like - and that should in fact become the Sprawl Busters anthem. It's called "Walk Away". Feel free to share the tune around if you think some of your people will like it. Cheers and keep up the fight." Here are the lyrics to "Walk Away:"

Walk Away
Out on the edge of town
Everything's on the edge of town
Box stores they are piling up
How I wish I could knock them down
Give them a coat
Give them a cap
In designer clothes
We salute their backs
Walk away, walk away, walk away
Walk away, walk away, walk away
Churn 'em out from a factory
Straight from a drive-thru reality
Those cars need room to roam
Bulldozing the greenery
Make perfect lawns
Big hair salons
Kings queens and pawns
In a world gone wrong
Walk away, walk away, walk away
Walk away, walk away, walk away
Tear it up, lay it down
Bringing life to this boring ground
In subdivisions of renown
Add water and fake a town
No need to send in the clowns
Garden gnomes by the fishing shack
Three car garage with a house attached
Neighbourhoods in psychic flames
From an outbreak of being the same
There's so much less to this
Than meets the eye
There's so much bliss to miss
But we'll get by
If we walk away, walk away, walk away
Walk away, walk away, walk away
Walk away, walk away, walk away
Walk away, walk away, walk away
