Track Name: Stumbling Horse
Stumbling horse, we were made for each other · Stumbling horse, we couldn’t save one another · Cause they wanted to put me down · and so they put you down · Run like the wind · with nothing to hold us now · Stumbling horse, we were right for each other · Stumbling horse, we tried to fight for each other · But they wanted to bring me down · and so they cut you down · There are fools who will never know · the value of anything that they can’t hold · There are fools who will never know · the value of anything that they can’t own
Track Name: Race to the Bottom
In this race to the bottom of the resource barrel · we’re drinking up the dregs, sucking the marrow · Beggar those kids, pillage and borrow · Rip it up now like there’s no tomorrow · Dirty oil king in his Calgary tower · He’s a pusher of one kind of power · Laying pipe, he’s the man of the hour · Dreaming ‘bout the virgins he’s gonna deflower · I for one am talking a good game · Singing as it’s going down in flames · Talking a good game, talking such a good game · Talking a good game, everybody’s talking a good game · Hey look! a dinosaur on the prairie · Now shouldn’t that be dead and buried? · It’s slick and rich and scary · Pumping all the pain out of Fort McMurray · I for one have played the village clown · Happy just to get the language down
Track Name: Chunka Change
Did some leader fromn the middle east teach you how to crush dissent? · Did some crime boss family show you how the message is sent? · When the horse is dead you cut off it’s head and put it in the bed boom! ‘nuf said · It takes a chun- ka change · to make your problems go away · to help people look the other way · to make sure witnesses got nothing to say · It takes a chunka change · You bought a spineless local priest to try to keep your faith intact and some hungry artists · Then you steal their feathers for your cap and parade around like you own the town but you’re dragging it down · It takes a mountain of money · to kill and get away with it · to sweep it under the carpet · to never have to admit it · It takes a mountain of money
Track Name: Chemicals
They say it’s all in my mind · The fight for our lives · Drowning in the chem- icals · Everyday the labels lie · All my life, all the lies · I know it’s killing us, you know it’s killing us · But no one knows where to begin · Processed food in plastic cups · Teflon pans, florescent lights · All the toxins in my blood · Light a match I might ignite · All my life, all the lies · I know it’s killing us, you know it’s killing us · But no one knows where to begin · I tell myself to look in the mirror, stare down the barrel of a gun · Sitting in my house, I don’t know where the shot is coming from
Track Name: Me and You Girl
All of the silence knows somethings around · My minds on the edge of some new sound· I’m taking each moment in to account · Watching myself slip while my heart’s on the ground · Me and you girl we’re going somewhere · Me and you girl we’re going somewhere · Take my dreams, let them be · Either way it’s hardly going to save me · I know my friends have let me down · We threw up our fists and walked away · Said we had some kind of sound · Threw in my heart that’s the price I paid
Track Name: Five Senses
Girl, if everybody gets to fall in love · then everybody gets to break a heart · Nobody has ever seen the end from the start · So let me walk with you blind-folded into love · One two three four five senses come alive · when you are holding me · One two three four five senses come alive · and set emotion free · Love has made us feel like we are lost at sea · like we never got to make this choice · I hear the sound of where I want to be in your voice · Currents keep shifting, we’ll just keep drifting free · and not be afraid of things we can’t foresee · One two three four five senses come alive · when you are holding me · One two three four five senses come alive · and set emotion free · One two three four five senses come alive · when you are holding me · The mind trying so hard to see why the heart · set emotion free
Track Name: I Know You Understand
One day when I am older · And I look back on all we’ve been through · I’ll reach out my hand to touch you · I know you’ll understand · I’ve been lost and I’ve been found · I’ve been carried and I’ve been let down · I’ve been running, but I know you understand · The sun wanes on the open sky · The dreams that we’ve been fed · The future winds the road ahead · I know you understand · I’ve been lost and I’ve been found · I’ve been carried and I’ve been let down · I’ve been running, but I know you understand · The spirits all broken · All the truth I’ve absorbed · It crawled in the basement, through a locked door · I’m the epitome of selfish · I’m a terrorist of love · But it crawls in the basement and it falls from above
Track Name: Minimum Wage
Take a part-time job five days a week · Put the kids in day-care down the street · Add a single mom to make the scene complete · who works for minimum wage · Ain’t no benefits for the part-time staff · keeps the labour cheap and the profit fat · ‘cause they make their money on your back · when you work for minimum wage · Money talks I’ve heard it said · It don’t grow on trees in a garden bed · And if time is money, well I must be dead · All i got is minimum wage · Well my old man takes his half-assed schemes · and fills them full of dope and dreams · Then he leaves me here to stitch these seams · and work for minimum wage · So all I’ve got is broke and bent · It’s work or welfare to make the rent · So I choose my poison cause the money’s spent · and work for minimum wage · Now come on sleep and let me rest · I’ve got to give the job my best · to feather someone else’s nest and work for minimum wage
Track Name: Blue Heart
Oh young girl, love of my life · if you trust my heart, hear my advice · Find a road less travelled to the other side · Your heart is open as the world is wide · And a heart that’s true is going to be blue · It’s all right · The bigger the heart, the harder it falls · and yours will run when passion calls · I can’t hold you anymore · But my love will follow you out that door · And a heart that’s true is going to be blue · It’s all right · Man of sorrows is a friend indeed · friend of sinners, sinner men like me · I walk his footsteps down dusty roads · till I walk beside him on streets of gold · ‘cause a heart that’s true is going to be blue · It’s all right · Leave your regrets, but carry the lesson · so you don’t forget your own confession · see I’m still standing, tested and tried · nothing to prove, nothing to hide · And a heart that’s true is going to be blue · It’s all right
Track Name: Baby Girl
All the new love shakes the dirty ground · Opens my eyes wide fills me up with sound · Every joy, sight and sound · Oh my baby girl · We brought in new life nature is all around · The challenge and the choice nothing but profound · Ev- ery joy, sight and sound · Oh my baby girl · Now we take the torch generation found · and we know ourselves now forever bound · Every joy, sight and sound · Oh my baby girl
Track Name: Hudson and Discovery
Henry Hudson sailed from Bristol with a crew of ragged souls · Searching for the Orient, for glory and for gold · Sailing on past Ireland and the jagged Icelandic coast · Through the Furious Overfall and the wrecks of compatriot ghosts · He came to open ocean, and thought he’s found the northwest route · It was only an illusion that broke the backs of his starving crew · They woke him up at midnight lowered him to the sea · The captain and eight compan- ions set adrift in mutiny · Like a ship abandoned somewhere out at sea · This land is drifting, God won’t you rescue me · Blinded by ambition, captains of industry · Conquering the earth, Hudson and Discovery
