Track Name: Draw
take my badge and gun
I know why they won’t run
put down my stick and shield
react to what I feel

draw
draw

look over my shoulder
flip off the head officer
take ten paces then draw
right into the law

draw
draw

I’m not paid to
follow the facts
follow the rules
and beat them into their tracks

I push one
they push us back
pull back my arm
turn around and fight back

take my badge and gun
I know why they won’t run
put down my stick and shield
react to how I feel

draw
draw

I’m not paid to
follow the facts
follow the rules
and beat them into their tracks

I push one
they push us back
pull back my arm
turn around and fight back
Track Name: Avenue
'cause every time I walk down the avenue
I fall a little more in love with you
every time I walk down the avenue
window shop futuristic point of view

and we try
to find
the reason
why

seasons change
streets stay the same
storefront windows I find
slightly rearranged

cause every time I walk down the avenue
I fall a little more in love with you
every time I walk down the avenue
window shop futuristic point of view

and we find
we get by
as we walk
the cars drive

down the streets side by side
look at things we could buy
instead we save our money
so that we can get high

'cause every time I walk down the avenue
I fall a little more in love with you
every time I walk down the avenue
window shop futuristic point of view
Track Name: Meet The Devil
there was a man
met the devil
shot a police man
inside a hotel stairwell

he was a friend
of his father's
he crossed the line
when he met his daughter

and I know why
the killers survive
'cause when the hard times come
they see the lies

and if you look
you might find
peace in a place
where death survives

peace in a place
where death survives
peace in a place
where death survives
peace in a place
where death survives

well there was a man
met the devil
down in the valley
at his ranch home

he knew this man
had many wives
had many children
saw none survived

and i know why
grave yards lined
rows of small tombstones
lay side by side

and if you look
you might find
peace in a place
where death survives

peace in a place
where death survives
peace in a place
where death survives
peace in a place
where death survives

well my friend's dad
met the devil
shot a police man
outside a main street bar room

he was alone
when he crossed the border
found dead the next day
with his tape recorder
Track Name: Northern Heart
she’s got a northern heart
cold from the start
she’s got a northern soul
icy I know

in this northern place
you’ve got no dreams to chase
you’re like an icicle
frozen in place

and every time I see those lights glow
I feel the green and blue like before
just like before
and every time I feel that wind blow
I’m not surprised that you’re so cold

you’ve had a northern life
lived by the knife
ain’t got no money
ain’t got no wife

she’s got some northern grace
like a snow flake of lace
you’re like an icicle
frozen in place

and every time I see that snow fly
I tell you it’s too cold to cry
too cold to cry
and every time I feel that wind blow
I’m not surprised that you’re so cold

and every time I see that snow fly
I tell you it’s too cold to cry
too cold to cry
and every time I feel that wind blow
I’m not surprised that it’s so cold
Track Name: An Argument
you’re in crisis mode again
it’s like the walls are closing in
you say you’re in your private hell
you brought it on yourself

is there something
that you want me to say
'cause your story’s getting
tired from always running away

I’m getting kind of sick
of digesting your lies
I know it’s hard
but I can’t sympathize

the sad face
and the phony tears
it’s like you’re screaming out
but nobody cares

about your calculated plan
to get sympathy
you’ll get nothing from me

you’ve got attitude to spare
sometimes patience it runs thin
you’d best watch your little mouth
you don’t know what you’re stepping in

is there something
that you want me to say
'cause your story’s getting
tired from always running away

I’m getting kind of sick
of digesting your lies
I know it’s hard
but I can’t sympathize

the sad face
and the phony tears
it’s like you’re screaming out
but nobody cares

about your calculated plan
to get sympathy
you’ll get nothing from me
Track Name: Oh Alberta
bite right in
to the permafrost
chew the earth
savour the sauce

so much work
so much exhaust
so little return
at what cost

our home land
not yours to gain
oh alberta
when will you make it rain

our home land
not yours to gain
oh alberta
when will you make it rain

let’s go to work
let’s break it down
there has got to be an easy way
to save this town

I don’t know
what I heard
don’t know who
spread the word

bite right in
to the permafrost
chew the earth
savour the sauce

so much work
so much exhaust
so little return
at what cost

our home land
not yours to gain
oh alberta
when will you make it rain

our home land
not yours to gain
oh alberta
when will you make it rain

our home land
not yours to gain
oh alberta
when will you make it rain

our home land
not yours to gain
oh alberta
when will you make it rain
Track Name: River Soul
driving to your farm
it’s the middle of the night
broken heart in tow
and the pieces of our life

winding down that road
near the river
so dark and cold
your heart still beats

and that is more
than those
who lost their souls
who lost their souls

your heart still beats
and that is more
than those
who lost their souls

and those who lost their souls
in the river so dark and cold
and those who lost their souls
in the river so dark and cold

driven down that road before
know how it feels
here and gone the next day
pain so unreal

but your alive
and so am I
we owe it to our past
live to see another day

good things they never last
that river moved so fast
we owe it to our past
we owe it to our past

good things they never last
that river moved so fast
we owe it to our past
that river moved so fast

and those who lost their souls
in the river so dark and cold
and those who lost their souls
in the river so dark and cold

in the river…
Track Name: All Alone
you’ve got no one to talk to
no one when you're feeling blue
you don’t want to talk on the phone
when you’re all alone
you’re all alone

you don’t want to go downtown
too many people walking 'round
just want to stay at home
when you’re all alone
you’re all alone

when you’re all alone
you’re all alone
when you’re all alone
you’re all alone
when you’re all alone
you’re all alone

you don’t want to go for a walk
you don’t want to sit and talk
sick of hearing me bitch and moan
when you’re all alone
you’re all alone

you don’t want to turn on the light
you just want to sit in the dark all night
listen to the wind blowin'
when you’re all alone
you’re all alone

when you’re all alone
you’re all alone
when you’re all alone
you’re all alone
when you’re all alone
you’re all alone

no need to comb your hair
ain’t no one looking up there
no need for cologne
when you’re all alone
you’re all alone

no one knocks at your door
you’ve got no one you’re waiting for
'cause ya ain’t that well known
when you’re all alone
you’re all alone

when you’re all alone
you’re all alone...
Track Name: Set Me Free
so listen up this is hard to say
and I would rather not repeat
the things I have to get throgh to you
are eating away at me

a friendship is built on trust and respect
and you had neither to spare
so I cut the ties ignored the lies
and I walked right out of there

I realize that what you did
had no intent to maim
but I have got to look out
for myself sometimes
and I know you’d do the same

I was one set back from a full breakdown
and that glitch turned out to be you
so I ran away never to speak again
it was all that I could do

and I’m sorry for my timing
you know I can’t tell you why
that moment in time
I felt like I wanted to die

I was sick of being lied to
nothing new at the time
I’m done with you like I quit the booze
it saved my life

I know you think that I’m a dick
and on some level you’re right
but you invaded my space
threw it right in my face
you were looking for a fight

I’d asked you not to come around
but my warnings were in vain
so I decided right there
to set myself free
you will never see me again

and I’m sorry for my timing
you know I can’t tell you why
that moment in time
I felt like I wanted to die

I was sick of being lied to
nothing new at the time
I’m done with you like I quit the booze
it saved my life
