Track Name: Catch Me if You Can
She's perched up on a patio in some exotic European town
She trod Camino Santiago her feet hardly ever once touched the ground
With her computer and her camera a sangria in her hand
She took a photo of her supper post her blog it says catch me if you can

Buenos tardes eh senor
Un vino blanco por favor

She said this travel life's her passion she couldn't live life any other way
I say she's searching for the Wizard of Oz but Tin Man's said he's gone away
It's genuinely superficial,or maybe she's just trying to hide
But the demons they still haunt her the ghosts tag along for the ride

She's going down to Barcelona
She's going down to Montreal

Buenos tardes eh senior
Un vino blanco por favor
I have to hurry and catch my train
It's my last flight
We'll meet again...
Track Name: Chandail
Un hiver so long ago
J'ai recu un beau cadeau
Bien emballer
Decorer de
rose papier et de ruban bleu

Quand je l'ai ouvert
Qu'ai je vue
Une bonne surprise
C'etait pour moi

Un chandail
violet et creme
avec des losanges
et un eclair

You're just skin and bones
Sticks and stones won't hurt me
A year has passes so it goes
I miss it so

Quand il faisait un peu froid
I'd put it on to keep me warm
I'd zip it up it held me tight
Chandail d'amout it felt so right

Your just skin and bones
Sticks and stones won't hurt me
Skin and bones
Sticks and stones won't hurt me

Mon chandail

Mon chandail que j'ai eu longtemps
Mais je me suis laisse trompee
One day I packed it up
Mon chandail, I gave it back
Track Name: Toward the Insignificant
When I was younger
The world revolved around me
When I was younger
I just did what I pleased

Toward the Insignificant
I am coming closer
Toward the insignificant

I walk outside With my cappucino
My cat Brushes against my leg
I sit down on my rock
Do status update
Gino posts
malady
Doctor says the Big C
HIs life has changed

Toward the Insignificant
I am coming closer
Toward the insignificant

I learned some lessons
Did it really matter
I'm just one life among billions
On a little green (blue) ball
I used to be so big but then I grew small
Track Name: Only Assholes Get the Blues
It's May15 and the weather's cold and wet
Can't hardly hold my pen inside my hand
I'm a melancholic, neurotic, whatchacallit
This red wine headache starts my whole day off

Well I'm 48 life coulda passed me by
When the curtains closed I got on my bike to ride
I hit the wall fell flat down on the ground
I hit that wall
Now I'm gonna kick it down

I fell so far down
I hit rock bottom
I broke my back
I was feelin' rotten
I had no choice
I took a stance
I made that change
I took the chance

It's been six months still I feel a little sting
What was a great big gash is now a teeny scab healing
I had to push the pain and drag myself right through
When push comes to shove only assholes get the blues

I fell so far down
I hit rock bottom
I broke my back
I was feelin' rotten
I had no choice
I took a stance
I made that change
I took the chance
Track Name: ASTRID
When I was a girl I rode all over town
You always came with me sun up to sun down
We travelled the world within Saskatoon
Went up on the train bridge we couldn't look down

There was me and my cousins feelin' so proud
In abandoned houses but we were so loud
Randy went up those stairs no light in the lair
I stayed at the bottom cause I was too scared

Astrid, let's run away Astrid
We have no master
We can go faster and faster
Astrid
Let's fill up your basket
We can go faster
We can go

We rode to my gran's on the west side of town
Eating tomato sandwiches fresh from the vine
With a grin she told me she went to confession
Cause she bought hot coffee she's now in heaven

Then we'd stop to see Shirley on Avenue G
On the steps of the bingo she would tell me
of boys she liked, then she'd steal a smoke
Then onward we went destination unknown

Chorus.. Astrid

Under streetlights I'd sing to you like Stevie Nicks
Dreams amidst Autumn Leaves having our kicks
Then the snow'd start to fall and I'd put you away'
And wait for next summer to do it again
Track Name: Lament of the Caribou
What happened
We've got nowhere to go
Time quickens
It used to pass so slow

A hundred years ago
A thousand of us strong
March to the treeline
Where our children born

I once was one among so many...

Recall the lichen
Green fresh sweet
Now air is acrid
Quickens my heartbeat

Skip to the present
We're fragile as glass
Wild rushing waters
Fragmented our past

Once was one among so many
Once was one among so many
I once was one among so many
Now I'm one among the few
One among the few
One among the few
Track Name: My Street
I got to watch my step as I'm walking down my street
Can't seem to get it all together, no matter what I do
I lost my keys as I'm walking down my street
No doubt, Locked out, psyched out
deja vu

The bottom of line of you misunderstanding
Results in my crash landing

I'm only 10 minutes late for me it really means I'm early
You'll be waiting by the Kaffe
Looking at your watch
Then I stop to breath cause I like to take my time and smell the flowers
then the 10 turns to 20 turns to 30
Jack pot

I better run better run better run better late than never
I better run better run better run I'm running out of time
Don't want to let down everyone still its better late than never
I better run better run better run I'm running out of time.

You're flatlining as I'm bouncing down my street
Then you hook me round the collar and try to haul me back
I go up I go down I go sideways down my street
You say that I've been lost, believe me I've been found

The bottom line of you misunderstanding
results in my crash landing
Track Name: Shell Shocked
Shell shocked shell shocked
you'll never be the same
you will fact this grim reality
It'll never go away

You thought when you came home
Life would be the same
You'd close your eyes and you would sleep
Back in her arms again

But the images they haunt you
You can smell the blood
You can see your brother
laying face down in the mud

Chorus

Freezing cold's the least of it
Digging holes
Hauling shit
Power lines are hanging
Life like hangs by a thread
There's a steady dose of casualties
Bombs explode to near me
Sweat skin blood bone
You're not ever going home

Chorus

He falls backwards down his hole
She reach to grasp his wrist but can't take hold

Shell Shocked
Track Name: Lament of the Caribou
What happened
We've got nowhere to go
Time quickens
It used to pass so slow

A hundred years ago
A thousand of us strong
March to the treeline
Where our children born


I once was one among so many...


Recall the lichen
Green - fresh - sweet
Now air is acrid
Quickens my heartbeat

Skip to the present
We're fragile as glass
Wild rushing waters
Fragmented our past


Once was one among so many
Once was one among so many
I once was one among so many
Now I'm one among the few
One among the few
Track Name: 48 Foot Shadow
40 Foot Shadow
at 4 in the afternoon
It's the 2nd of November
Now I'll have some room
On my shoulders, they're still tired
I hauled a heavy load
But it's the 2nd of November
and it's 48 feet high

I got no house
I took a loss
I gave it all away
I still give away my money
I live day to day
Head's barely above water
Sometimes I still can't breathe
Yet I feel a litter lighter
I feel peace and ease
Cause it's the 2nd of November
Winter's coming soon
I got a 48 foot shadow
at 4 in the afternoon

First think I look upward
Sky's deep azure blue touching
Hemlock and the balsam
Grounds me keeps me true
Through it all I kept my soul
I even kept some pride
Now and then I'm shaky
In this life that is our ride
It's the 2nd of November
I can say I'm feeling fine
I got a 48 foot shadow

It's the 2nd of November
I used to feel so low
I got a 48 foot shadow
A 48 foot shadow

It's the 2nd of November
I used to feel so small
I got a 48 foot shadow
I'm 48 feet tall
Track Name: Aloner Alone
Here is sit inside my room
10 000 miles from home
My friends drink beer upon the beach
Why do I feel so alone

The sun beats down on glistening sand
Reflects upon the sea
I exit quiet sneak into my room
I sigh, oh poor me

I'm a loner
Always alone
I'm aloner
Leave me alone

I climb my rock high on the cliff
Watch the waves crash in
I taste salt upon my cheek
Tears drip to my chin

I'm a loner
Always alone
Aloner
Leave me alone

You leave me here all by myself
I don't feel surprised
My friends tell me don't waste your time
They hope that I soon get wise
