Track Name: Find Love
Gonna find love / Gonna walk to where you are
When I feel you / Gonna shout from the mountain top
And we’ll drive all night / To that sunset paradise
Gonna breathe in / Fill my lungs with truth and light

And there ain’t nobody gonna take away / The love we build tonight
‘Cause it’s loud as thunder and sure as rain
Our shelter, our fire

Because she’s the one / And nothing’s gonna change
The way I feel about her / And it’s pushing through my veins
Track Name: Teenage Autumn Nights
On them teenage autumn nights / The fire’s burning so bright
Park behind the rink / What will mama think
When I bring you home so late
I’m terrified / That my heart might break and die
Remember when I took your hand in mine

It’s a come back, baby, tonight / The music is deafening
Pearl Jam at the bar / Rancid in the car
Singin’ Ruby Soho ‘til the break of dawn
Echoes of reggae through my bedroom wall
Remember when we drove and touched ‘em all

On them teenage autumn nights
Ain’t nothing ever felt so right
Bunch of vandal juveniles
We were in love and out our minds
Woohoo

It’s a throw down, baby, tonight / Drop the gloves it’s time to fight
Walkin’ in the park / Hold you in the dark
Blue and reds are flashin’ now I’m stuck inside
And the cuffs are rather tight
Remember when I took your hand in mine

On them teenage autumn nights
Ain’t nothing ever felt so right
Bunch of vandal juveniles
We were in love and out our minds
Woohoo
Track Name: Restless Fool
There’s someone I used to know / Look a lot like him
Memories lost inside these bones / Radiate within
Changing like the ocean / Changing like regimes
I’m gonna sing my song ‘til it’s outta key
Gonna find out what it means

But I feel the same / When you call my name
And these memories, these memories, they make me smile

We got now, then, forever and I bet
Long lives the Restless Fool

Climb the highest mountain / Fall down on your knees
Asking for forgiveness / Asking to be free
Track Name: The Brinkmen
Six billion ticking time bombs / This is how the world will end
No need for pyrotechnics / With a whimper not a bang
The tides are rising fast now / Ain’t no need to wonder why
An apathetic powder keg / We explode toward the sky

But don’t forget it
The place that you came from / The storm is never done
The melting winters / The cuts that time wont heal
The people who’ll disappear

The winds that moved your hair / The crashing of the waves
The spirits and the fog / The words I didn’t say

Forgotten words, we lost the war / Elders crying for the dead
Rhythms of the earth remember / The disaster in my head

But don’t forget it
The place that you came from / The storm is never done
The melting winters / The cuts that time wont heal
The people who’ll disappear

The winds that moved your hair / The crashing of the waves
The spirits and the fog / The words I didn’t say
We’re goin’ away / goin’ away / Goin’ away
Words we didn't say / Words we should’ve said
Track Name: Better Days
I’ll be comin’ home / You’ll be on your way
Walk the street ‘til dawn / These are better days

Another late Vancouver night / See them stars burning bright
Walk down Main Street all alone / Street lights buzzin’, shadows growin’
Curse the cars as they pass me by / Your memory electrifies
I’ve been dreaming since I left this morning, this morning

I’ll be comin’ home / You’ll be on your way
Walk the street ‘til dawn / These are better days

I stumbled through a grizzled rain / One more drink to kill the pain
Look so deep in a stranger’s eye / See myself the truth, the lies
So far gone I’ve lost my head / Beat up, dragged down, left for dead
All I need is one more chance in the morning, in the morning
Track Name: In Your Eyes
One early morning / You’ll awake and fear
That everything you’ve built has washed out to the sea
And you’ve been hiding / From the hurt and pain
You walked away from this / It turned out all the same
I’d sail the ocean / I’d climb on high
To see the world the way I see it in your eyes

There ain’t no tomorrow / There ain’t no yesterday
Everything’s a lie / Endless days of rain

My empty wallet / My battered brain
My broken barren heart / The stupid things I say
The sky is falling / The night is grey
I recall faded pasts and yearn for memories

There ain’t no tomorrow / There ain’t no yesterday
Everything’s a lie / Endless days of rain
But where I see nothing / You see fields of green
When the night is darkest, possibility
But where I see nothing / You see fields of green
When my night is darkest, possibility
Track Name: Money Gods
Ridin’ on a wave of smoky dreams
The mountain shakes the people scream
The money gods will swallow earth and trees
Long horizons painted black and green

Don’t you ever wonder what they mean?
Words of war as songs of peace
The new crusade, the lies you can’t believe
Power stays the truth deceives

Voices rising / The mountain echoes

Bye, bye same old song / Been around for way too long
Bye, bye world you know / Never gonna let it go

Fateful eyes set on the Sailish sea
Warriors invade the raven flees
The tar is crude the cash is so obscene
Stack the deck and make away like thieves

Voices rising / The mountain echoes

Bye, bye same old song / Been around for way too long
Bye, bye world you know / Never gonna let it go
Bye, bye days of old / Let down by the hate you sold
Bye bye, liberty / Something ‘bout the way it bleeds
Track Name: Through the Darkness
When the darkness comes to rest
I feel it deep inside my chest
This old man has seen it all
The darkness falls
Things are different than before
I’m wicked lonely getting old
Leaving this whole thing to fate
It’s enough to make me pray
For yesterday

And the leaves will bow down
When you walk by with me
Those ships will crash and sink into the sea
Before I let you down my love
Oh how simple life becomes

When the darkness comes on by
I hope it misses by a mile
Our brothers saw the darkness rise
Fought my whole entire life
The darkness falls

And the leaves will bow down
When you walk by with me
Those ships will crash and sink into the sea
Before I let you down my love
Oh how simple life becomes

I’ll never let you down, I’ll make you stronger
Lay your head upon my shoulder
Love will never die
Tonight
Track Name: Million Miles
When you find me on the floor
Please remember that I’ve lost it all
Re-align me with the stars
Thoughts forgotten, but I hunger for
All the old days living, just you and I on our own
Great adventures, running far away from home

But I’d give it all away for one more try
When a man regrets his days, forgets his nights

You’re a million miles away
You’ve got time, I’ve got faith
Sometimes when worlds collide, ain’t no need to wonder why
There’s just something that I’ve gotta say
I’m getting old, I’m getting grey
Sometimes when words escape, things will never be the same

All the comforts I knew before, they’re long gone now like them dinosaurs
I was high-class / I was owed
For doing nothing / And I lost the gold
Ain’t no difference / Ain’t no way
I’ll forget you on this cold and lonesome day
Track Name: The Revisionist
I’m stuck out here and I got no place to go
And I see your love is almost all the way gone
The cars race by / as we walk along the freeway
And the drivers crash before they make their way home

Nobody seems to care who I'm lovin', how I'm livin'
Everybody seems to know what I’ve taken, what I’ve given

And I don’t know if I loved you anyway

The murder flies / turns the sky as black as evening
And the mountains humble all the people below

Nobody seems to care who I'm lovin', how I'm livin'
Everybody seems to know what I’ve taken, what I’ve given

And I don’t know if I loved you anyway
(But I’m a liar)
