Track Name: Between the Trees
I know you’ve been hiding, hiding from me.
I see your footprints between the trees
I’ve seen you wandering with them pack of wolves
I’ve see you abandon ancient codes

When you came to town, you just let me down.
When you came to town, you just let me down.

I gave a voice to the voiceless
You took a promise from a boy with promise
I gave and gave till I could give no more
You gave me hope that I would sing tomorrow
Track Name: Teeth
Have I gone too far?
Am I too far gone?
Have I come unglued
Have I grown to close to you?
Have you seen me sweat after 12 hours dry?
Can’t you me shaking for another drop of rye?
Do you ever wonder why?

I’ve had my foes, had my woes, had my chemicals... but this one? She’s got teeth.

My functions go sour
my stomach gets mean
My mind becomes cloudy, all of this unseen.
My thoughts are on one, one foul-weathered friend
Who lately just lingers and the rain it never ends
And the storm clouds trend and trend.

I’ve had my foes, had my woes, had my chemicals... but this one? She’s got teeth.
Track Name: The Hangman
On the rusted highway here, I found God, but he lost me.
And when I got back to “What’s Real”, I began to think, I began to feel....
The Hangmans coming, he’s coming, I know know know he’s coming down. He’s coming, he’s coming, I know know know he’s coming down.... down down down.


I picked up my carcass and ran. I ran and ran until I had to stop running. And when the hangman hooked my neck, I pulled him down.. You know I pulled that sucker down!
The Hangmans coming, he’s coming, I know know know he’s coming down. He’s coming, he’s coming, I know know know he’s coming down.... down down down....
He’s coming down.... down down down.
Track Name: Knock Knock
I go knocking on your door your door your door your door your door.
I go knocking on your door.
I go ringing on your phone your phone your phone your phone, I go ringing on your phone.

Chorus:
But you never answer do ya do ya do ya do ya
do, you never answer do ya do. And now I
see right through ya through ya through ya through ya through. I now I see right through ya through... through ya through.

I send mail to your house your house your house your house. I send mail to your house.
I scream darling baby please, please please please. I scream darling baby please.
Track Name: Everstone
Your smiles are fleeting With every new sun rise
And our evening are slipping into the nights of our lives
In the morning I sleep in, to postpone my work day
I should never even close my eyes and risk missing your face

We’re caught in the ocean and the waves they keep coming
don’t break from the bailing cause the drums they keep drumming.
On our deathbeds they’ll ask us to recall them as babies
And I hope we go knowing, that these were the good days.
These are the good days
The good old new days
So you’d better take notice
Before they are gone.

Everstone you can say you knew us when.
Everstone we were so much younger then.
Everstone our love was always on the mend.
Everstone. Everstone.
Track Name: Do Mi Ti Fa Re
I miss the streetlights reflecting on the back of my dad’s front seat.
I want the white lights of maple ridge to be more than a memory
I wanna feel like I felt with St Cecilia at midnight mass.
I wanna see snow by November, and I want to see it last.
I want me the way I was
Do Mi Ti Fa Re
I want my brothers and sisters to have nothing but adventure.
I want Neil Young and Nana Mouskouri to sing me home.
I want my mother with long chestnut hair to comfort me.
I want my father to let me ride up front in his red MG.
I want me the way I was
Do Mi Ti Fa Re
I want me the way I was
Do Mi Ti Fa Re
Do Mi Ti Fa Re
Do Mi Ti Fa Re
Track Name: Thunder Thighs
I got the premonition you’ve been waiting on me. Thunder, you brighten up my prospects daily. You’re all I want, you’re all I need, and you could light up the world.
How does 15 pounds of flesh and blood contain everything I need? ‘Cause You’re all I want, you’re all I need, and you could light up the world.
Your smile shines bright, to match your eyes.
Thunder Thighs.
Lightning, you see right through me, it’s true. But you, love me anyways, don’t you?
And You’re all I want, you’re all I need, and you could light up the world.
Your smile shines bright, to match your eyes.
Thunder Thighs.
Track Name: Hooks and Crooks
My Head Aches, whenever your not there. It slowly takes over, even the smallest care.
about my life, and where to rest my bones, but the devils always had a place for me,
And God can’t pick up the phone!
But there’s places to run, and songs to be sung,
but I can’t find the time to stop the time to move!

You got your hooks in me, you found the crook in me, I feel my souls a folding, just a sheep in wolfs clothing!

I can’t wait until I hit rock bottom, so I got something firm to push off, So I can swim up to the shore. Cause the older I get, the less I seem to know, With every wrinkle around my eyes I’m a little less wise.

Come hold me close, So I can carry your scent on my clothes, and while I trudge through the arctic white, I’ll be reminded of you. On this lake of frozen ghosts and their tracks still in the snow, your smell will keep me warn although my bodies cold.
Track Name: Operdomo
Operdomo, you said you’d always love me.
Operdomo, and that theirs nothing above me.
Operdomo, sometimes you drive me crazy,
Operdomo and I could swear that you hate me.

Operdomo It’s been ten long years
Operdomo and we’ve seen our share of tears
Operdomo are you up for a hundred more?
Operdomo are you down for not keeping score?
When we fight my dear, fight eachother... don’t go thinking that means, we’re not lovers.

Love letters, hate mail, let’s just self destruct,
the highest highs, the lowest lows, my heart pines harder in autumn.
Track Name: Tennessee Blue
Tennessee Blue baby I love you.
Tennessee Blue baby I love you.
Tennessee Blue baby I love you.
Tennessee Blue baby I love you.
Track Name: Anecdotal Antidote
Well it’s a 4:54.
4 Minutes till I hit the floor.
Well it’s a 5 to 5.
5 Minutes till I feel alive.

Only You. Only you got my antidote.

C’mon and sting my lips.
Go on swing your heavy hips.
Set my chest on fire
C’mon and tell me your sweetest lie.

Only You, Only you got my antidote, you got my number.
Only you x 6
I march downstairs to my shrine of you. I kneel right down and worship you. Still, you still want more of me. I march downstairs to my shrine of you. I kneel right down and worship you still, I still want more of you....
