Track Name: All In My Head
Young hearts
Hands up
Everybody in my past gave up

Crack my head on the table ‘cause it’s all in my head, yeah, it’s all
Makes me feel so unstable ‘cause it’s all in my head, yeah, it’s all

Yeah, It’s all, all
baby, it’s all, all
All in my head

Love’s not in the agreement ‘cause it’s all in my head, yeah, it’s all
Na na Nothing, na na nothing’s heaven sent ‘cause it’s all in my head, yeah, it’s all

All in my head

Christian girls laugh at a glance.
I said, “When I’m drunk I’ll dance.”

I try to keep me all in my head
I try and try to fake I’m dead
When I die I want the waves to breathe cherry red
as I sleep at the bottom of this seabed
Track Name: I'm Not Gonna Let This Die
Kid waved me down with a grin of sarcasm
as if he knew
under a sky pink and blue
I was like him, my youth’s like a phantom limb
but it’s gone
but still something I dwell on

I’m not gonna let this die
No, not this time

Meet me under the bridge we’ll binge until the morning
and watch the cars
drive to local bars
We’ll fall asleep at the feet of what we’re ignoring
Won’t let it fly
We’ll cut the wings off time

I’m not gonna let this die
No, not this time

An old man with heavy arms
raised his hand to do no harm
He lifted a drink for all the times
he spent trying to survive

I’m not gonna let this die
No, not this time

Young hearts
hands up
everybody in my past gave up
Track Name: Weather Eye
Watched by a weather eye
on my every move
Why am I walking so fast when I’ve got nothing to lose?

But I’m lost now
within my own confines
it’s a hedge maze inside my mind

This house has too much company
a man sits down beside me
He speaks words easy to dispose
when in that dim light you rose

Where are you now, now, now, now, now, now?
‘cause I’m sold
Where are you now, now, now, now, now, now?
‘cause I’m sold
The days we consume every blow
So hazy, doomed and uncontrolled
Will freeze me with your beauty, though
so hazy, doomed and uncontrolled

Saskatchewan sun
on highway one
6 hours where you’re coming from

When I open my eyes
under pink skies
I think who, what, when, why

Where are you now, now, now, now, now, now?
‘cause I’m sold
Where are you now, now, now, now, now, now?
‘cause I’m sold
The days we consume every blow
So hazy, doomed and uncontrolled
Will freeze me with your beauty, though
so hazy, doomed and uncontrolled

At a party you’re flying high up
when your tied up to a hundred balloons

And everyone’s happy for you
as you fly out of view

Where are you now, now, now, now, now, now?
‘cause I’m sold
Where are you now, now, now, now, now, now?
‘cause I’m sold
The days we consume every blow
So hazy, doomed and uncontrolled
Will freeze me with your beauty, though
so hazy, doomed and uncontrolled
Track Name: Disappear
I’m going to change, I swear I will
I’m going to change, I swear I will

Now I’m faced with the fact
That you’re never coming back
I just wanna disappear

And if my hope dissolves in sexuality
get high with me
I just wanna disappear
with you

I’m going to change, I swear I will
When nothing moves I can’t stand still

To add to your rock collection here’s the stoic me
The stone in me
I just wanna disappear

Skip me along the lake and then I’m down
And I’ll drown
I just wanna disappear
with you


You can’t see me anymore
Track Name: Lady Lunar
The moon and a neon sign
grasp you from behind
your silhouette is just an outline
of your design
What’s inside?
Am I truly out of line?

Crickets chirp in my silenced mind
I thought you loved me this time
these empty thoughts leave decisions blind
This one time
I’m inside
Maybe you could love me if you really tried

To close your sorry, little eyes
and think of me as some other guy
You’re truly twisted, sister
and we’re not gonna take it, anymore

Your shadow lays upon my naked chest
My shadow is dispossessed
asking, “Will I ever be more than a guest?”
Well, you decide
if you could love me if you really tried

To close your sorry, little eyes
and think of me as some other guy
You’re truly twisted, sister
and we’re not gonna take it, anymore

Maybe
you could love me
if you really, really, really, really tried

So, close your sorry, little eyes
and think of me as some other guy
You’re truly twisted, sister
and we’re not gonna take it
we’re not gonna take it
we’re not gonna take it, anymore
Track Name: Where Art Thou?
I said that I would never let you down
It’s just you lie, you lie, you lie all the fucking time
Who are you?
Just try to avoid the snow
it gets too cold, too cold, too cold for your gold soul
Who are you?

So, brother, there’s no other, you’ve got to seal these growing cracks
and realize our neighbors are at war like an open store
So, brother, there’s no other, you’ve got to seal these growing cracks
And don’t purchase anything you can’t

Your mind is an open freeway
thoughts come too fast, too fast, too fast that they’ve already passed
Who are you?
No cash with a hobby like that
When you spend, you spend, you spend until you see the end
Who are you?

So, brother, there’s no other, you’ve got to seal these growing cracks
and realize our neighbors are at war like an open store
So, brother, there’s no other, you’ve got to seal these growing cracks
And don’t purchase anything you can’t

So, come on
I don’t see the end
My hand’s free to lend
So, grab a hold
To get away from the cold
To get away from the cold
To get away from the cold

I cry when life has got you by the throat
I’m scared you’ll die, you’ll die, you’ll die when you get too high

Who are you?
Track Name: Dog Years
Rabbits underneath my feet
I’ve been killing here for weeks
smoking insect poisons

my tongues goes black
as the moment passes
I think about my choices

Well, I choose what I do and I do what I choose
in my shoes I am bound to lose
everyone around me

‘cause I kill what I can, I’m a killing man
with a life span as long as my life plan
and that’ll end shortly

My brothers and I
we sit and hide
wait for the fuzz to leave
if they come inside
it’ll coincide
with us hanging off the eaves
hopefully
run, run, run, run, run
ain’t life so much fun
when you’re always on the run
with a stolen gun
named after your father?
When they’ve finally won
and I’m completely done
I’ll still run
like my father

Yeah, I took up selling drugs
to poor and nameless thugs
asking, “what’s your poison?”

Father ran away
Now mother left us stray
We still hear their voices

That would shake and break like an earthquake
our house and make our neighbours wide awake
asking, “Do you hear those noises?”

I was young with the lung of a man who sung
with a raspy voice and a foul tongue
I love what destroys me

My brothers and I
we sit and hide
wait for the fuzz to leave
if they come inside
it’ll coincide
with us hanging off the eaves
hopefully
run, run, run, run, run
ain’t life so much fun
when you’re always on the run
with a stolen gun
named after your father?
When they’ve finally won
and I’m completely done
I’ll still run
run
Track Name: When the Wolves Came In
Tip toe across this shaking beam
Take this fraudulent scheme
to the grave, my friend

He has a book full of all his quotes
We’d sit around and sing the songs I wrote
‘til wolves howled in

‘til the wolves,
the wolves howled in

He pushed out bags and bags and bags of white
into the hands of the night life
and slept through the day

He said this house made me who I am
I deliver my flaws, the deliveryman
I’m not happy, anymore

I’m not happy,
I’m not happy, anymore

And it gets so goddamn cold

He’s itchin’ in the kitchen and he’s twitchin’
tearing at the stitchin’ so he starts licking
a mirror and he’s thinking
his reflection’s sinking
into a flowing sea of white
he’s awake for another night
in all the angry phone calls home
not one word was spoke or wrote in stone
he’d regret it all, he, all, he would
all, he, all, he would
when the wolves came in

when the wolves came in with snow covered paws
slave to save the thought of what once was

all, he, all, he, all, he would
Track Name: Little Red Car
You were a little red car
picking up dust in the backyard
and the rain would just stain
and be lifted by the closest star
And the kids climb inside you
whenever they feel to
and they’d smoke and they’d joke
and laugh the whole night through

Well, the doors barely shut and the seatbelt’s left outside
The trunk’s filled with beer cans in the summertime

When the men came to you
and painted you completely blue
they repaired and declared
you their own
Yeah, you were something new
Yeah, you were something new
Yeah, yeah, you were something,
you were something new

Well, the doors barely shut and the seatbelt’s left outside
The trunk’s filled with beer cans in the summertime
And I know you’re happy to see me so happy to see you
‘cause you’ve been lonely, too

And the seats filled with burnt, black craters now
and the tires flat, sinking into the ground
Well, I know you’re happy to see me so happy to see you
‘cause you’ve been lonely, too

Well, the doors barely shut and the seatbelt’s left outside
The trunk’s filled with beer cans in the summertime
And I know you’re happy to see me so happy to see you
‘cause you’ve been lonely, too
Track Name: Marisa
Marisa, I’ll miss ya, I want you to stay
we met in a dim lit lab in tenth grade
You showed me around in my own home town
We climbed down the bridge, we climbed down, down, down, down, down

Now the exit and entrance they both look the same
Shaking out some words to speak a flame
when fire starts raging and truth’s all out
I’ll just be an arsonist, put the blame on my mouth

Well, truth
is a boiling river
it’s proof
that it’s rarely delivered
Will you
float back home?
Will you
boil in the foam?
Like a year ago


Marisa, I’ll miss ya, I want you to stay
You said you’re moving to a different city
somewhere far in the west coast
you took off from pillar to post

We arrived home late but I was sober I swear
Swam in a cloud of your dark hair
It meant risk of rain, risk of tears
If I knew you’d be leaving the next year

Well, truth
is a boiling river
it’s proof
that it’s rarely delivered
Will you
float back home?
Will you
boil in the foam?
Like a year ago

Marisa, I’ll miss ya, I want you to stay
But I know it can’t always be that way

Call home, dear
Call home, dear
Call home, dear
They miss you

But it’s never going to end
No, it’s never going to end
No, it’s never going to end
No, it’s never going to

Call home, dear
Call home, dear
Call home, dear
They miss you
Track Name: I'm Not Ashamed
All I live for is beached upon your shore
The past seems less and less real and more and more worn
by someone
who looks a lot like me
in a photo
I’ve misplaced what I have been

I drove to Calgary, punching through high beams
When I opened my eyes it was so serene
your body
climbed on top of me
in memory
of places I have been

When the sandbags in my mind gave way
you swam inside like a mermaid
I’d catch you but I don’t swim well
Aw, hell, farewell, who will tell how long this spell will dwell?
And now I’ve filtered it all out, it’s all out
I can’t sing with the sound of my own mouth
I can’t hide my face, so, don’t speak my name
I came to reclaim my frame, I’m not ashamed
I’ve changed, I’m not ashamed
I fell apart like a daisy chain
I’ve changed, I’m not ashamed
Now that my mind has drained I’m not ashamed

I’m not ashamed
I’m not ashamed
I’m not ashamed
I'm not ashamed
I fell apart like a daisy chain
I’m not ashamed
I’m not ashamed
I’m not ashamed
Now that my mind has drained I’m not ashamed
Track Name: Devil
There’s this devil outside my house
Breathe it in and breathe it out
Oh, the devil, oh, oh, the devil

Here on our suburban streets
a place where we used to meet
Is gone, woah, is gone

You and I watched the sun set
so young, this is where we met
long
so long ago

There’s this devil outside my house
Breathe it in and breathe it out
Oh, the devil, oh, oh, the devil
