One take, One very fancy microphone, in a beautiful vacant library. This very raw acoustic record lacks subtlety, but makes up for it with gutsy levels of passion and occasional complexity; much like the author of these works. But, like every great poet and perpetual tunesmith...were sure he means well.

Track Name: Let Go
I can't stop thinking
I'm up all night
Is that you dear blowing smoke rings round my brain
I can feel you coming down on me
Might have to sleep out in the rain
To cool down
Track Name: Cold Turkey
I've got this demon laid up in my head
Screaming, screaming cause she needs to be fed
I'm going cold turkey.

My bodies aching so I sweat and I shake
Started wondering how much more I can take
I'm going cold turkey

I know I'll make it if I just get one fix
Dial that number huny 666
I'm going cold turkey

The tunnels clearing
I can just see the end
Then comes a visit from my old best friend
We're going cold turkey
Track Name: SkyTrain
The Skytrain will take me away
Off to the places where memories play
There's no place that I'd rather be
Than here on this Skytrain
My baby and me.
Track Name: Long Long Ago
It's not like we kiss
It's just the romance that we miss
But I knew it so well
Long long ago
Track Name: Canadian Lullaby
Let the rain fall down upon us
Let the fields grow towards the sky
Let the farmers rest their weary heads
A Canadian Lullaby

Let the trees grow up around us
Let the seas never run dry
Let the sailors rest in their warm dry bed
a Canadian lullaby

Let the trains feed our fair cities
Let the children never need cry
Let our Mothers be blessed
As They Blessed Us
A Canadian Lullaby

And let the people stand for their freedom
Be proud hold your head high
Cause no one can break
The spirit we make
A Canadian lullaby
Track Name: I Need Your Love
I need your love
It's all I ever want, it's all I ever really need.
I need it.
Track Name: Insane
Burdening the children
For our crazy ways
Poisoning the future
Poisoning our veins

There's no violence in my heart
Just this rumble in my brain
And it's tearing me apart
Yah it's driving me

The media is frenzied
For the hate parade
They're lapping up the blood now
That's how they get paid

There's no violence in my heart
Just this rumble in my brain
and it's tearing us apart
Yah it's driving me
