Track Name: Troublemaker
No bother, no art

It's No bother, no art
Troublemaker from the start,
No bother, no art
I'm a troublemaker from the start

romance
romance
Track Name: SSSnake Pit
When I've felt empty
And there's no way out
When you touch the bottom
And nothing comes out

Cast around
For new distraction
Can't open up space
Can't motivate action

Bottom of the pit
Snake pit in Dawson
When the sky turns black
And summer's killed by autumn

You know I've been here before
But each time it's new
It's taught me some things
Did you learn them to?

Bring someone in
Show them your home
But they just breeze through
And you're on your own

What is is worth?
This patch of the shore
Do you feel anything
that you didn't feel before

And if you hold onto it
For all of your life
Does it make you more whole
In the dark of the night
Track Name: Veins
Hello love, my old friend
I trust I'll see you
You again
I've felt empty and I've felt pain
Scattered over the treetops
And into my veins

In the shipyard of dreams,
In the harbour of pain
The cars underwater, the landmarks remain
To touch the big blue
Touch the big grey
Letter from the edge of peace,
From the disarray

The salt in the air
The mist on my skin
The wind in my hair
The state I am in
Track Name: I'm Not With It
If I come back to you
Will you fall to the sea
Will we hang on St. Paul Street
Will you set yourself free

I keep dreaming of bands
That I'm not in
Dream of performers
That rise above the din

Dream of a cadence
That I've heard before
And I haven't felt this way
In 10 years or more

I'm not with it,
But I can get into it

Ghosts in the audience
And in the booth
Chalk on the sidewalk
And beers on the roof

A cold mist rolls in
And gives me a sheen
A companion stands waiting
That I've never seen

I'm not with it,
But I can get into it
Track Name: Dance Dance O'er the Melancholy Fray
Dance dance over the melancholy fray

Everyone's making it finding success
And in the dust of their trails they left you a mess
Dance dance over the melancholy fray

The unbelievable cold is on it's way back
It brings attention to detail and I'm back on track
Dance dance over the melancholy fray

There's a footpath where you can keep going
Centuries of footfalls have etched it's knowing
The cliffs, the water
Once here you can't forget your father
Dance dance over the melancholy fray

Another one's free, but only for a price
So it's not the same thing when taken twice
It benefits them when you don't understand
When a good explanation is a helping hand
Dance dance over the melancholy fray

Cold calculations are just what you'd expect
The result's a landslide of neglect
I held onto this vintage '80s stereo
In a cottage or a house in rural Ontario
Dance dance over the melancholy fray

Remnants of a time things started falling down
30 years later we haven't turned this thing around
Dance dance over the melancholy fray
Track Name: Last Night's Parade
Last night's parade took us to the den
Where the youth are howling for a fleeting zen
A moment is unpacked in a blister of light
But doubt festers, "will we make it through the night?"

Another one's free but only for a price
So it's not the same think if taken twice
It benefits them when you don't understand
When a good explanation is a helping hand
