Track Name: sir william dawson
in the old abandoned school
that they tore down
i'm afraid of it's basement
and what used to be underground

a hole that lead me home
it's over
it's over grown
Track Name: drugs in the mail
i went out last night with some of my friends
and it made me feel alive again
i been so cooped up inside of my apartment
but i got some drugs in the mail and an invitation
to stop thinking about you
i been thinking about you
Track Name: not underwater
i wanna share a pair of headphones
and go on the 52
i want to look at islands with you
i want to transfer home and get into bed
talk about our day and the time we spent
not underwater

its these winter time outdoor halifax activities
they keep me indoors and not underwater
i want to be underwater with you
Track Name: swimming
go out swimming
trying to find
the golden starfish
you saw in your mind
fall asleep
in the tub
think about water and the color of the sun
Track Name: almost gone
you lead me to your bed
with cold hands and old medicine
my powers are almost gone
i got a complete lack of expression

but you saw through my eyes
you saw all my hate and all my lies

drag me back to shore
show me yours
i don't wanna go home
i never wanna go home

my powers are almost gone
Track Name: focus on the pain
phantom lightning i can feel it in my bones
i wanna die on this highway
kill me right now

i wanna focus on the pain
Track Name: caribou pictou
a pail a crab i was young
a child who loved the sun
the breeze cooled me down
until the sun drown

i spent all day on the beach
rollin' in the dry sand
marine life and tiny shells
sifting through my hands

a board a path i was young
a child who loved to run
climbin' trees and diggin holes
until i had to go home

i spent all day in the woods
gettin' sap on my hands
runnin' from whole bees nest
on two sets of land (on the shores of the northumberland)
Track Name: fall saleep underwater
show me all of your tattoos under the water and we'll go to sleep
underwater dreaming of you
and we're way down
Track Name: this will be our year
The warmth of your love
is like the warmth of the sun
and this will be our year
took a long time to come

don't let go of my hand
now darkness has gone
and this will be our year
took a long time to come

and I won't forget
the way you held me up when I was down
and I won't forget the way you said,
"Darling I love you"
You gave me faith to go on

Now we're there and we've only just begun
This will be our year
took a long time to come

The warmth of your smile
smile for me, little one
and this will be our year
took a long time to come

You don't have to worry
all your worried days are gone
this will be our year
took a long time to come

and I won't forget
the way you held me up when I was down
and I won't forget the way you said,
"Darling I love you"
You gave me faith to go on

Now we're there and we've only just begun
and this will be our year
took a long time to come

Yeah we only just begun
yeah this will be our year
took a long time to come
Track Name: romeo and juliet
If you will die for me,
I will die for you

and our graves will
be like two lovers washing
their clothes together
in a laundromat.

If you will bring the soap,
I will bring the bleach.

—Richard Brautigan
Track Name: ray of light
quicker than a ray of light
Track Name: farewell to nova scotia
Chorus: Farewell to Nova Scotia, the sea-bound coast,
Let your mountains dark and dreary be.
For when I am far away on the briny ocean tossed,
Will you ever heave a sigh or a wish for me?

The sun was setting in the west,
The birds were singing on every tree.
All nature seemed inclined to rest
But still there was no rest for me.

Chorus
Track Name: florence blues
up in the morning
before dawn
the sun is a shining
and the birds are calling
been up late
awake all night long
dropped with the lord jeff
a trip all the way home

still i can't sleep
without these sounds
man i can't wait to get out of this town
so far
you turn me on
