Track Name: Teen Romance
you write me letters, short words on screens
sage on your finger tips, and your hands on me
kissing in alleys, and parks by the fence
walking through Kensington
and night clubs when you dance and you dance and you dance
just like teen romance
just like teen romance

deep in the fog, deep in the trees
the smile on your face, and your skin in my teeth
lakeshore at sunset, the food and the pants
umbrellas and halloween
and you dance and you dance and you dance and you dance
just like teen romance
just like teen romance
just like teen romance
Track Name: Parkdale (When the Bars Close)
Nobody wants this shift
Parkdale when the bars close
drunk kids buying cigarettes
the locals slurring epithets

Every time the door chimes
could be thieves with magazines
drink machine is dripping broken
I worry about quitting

Say things twice for white ears
three times for the tourists
always sick and always cold
scratch tickets but don’t get rich

Every time the door chimes
could be thieves with magazines
drink machine is dripping broken
I worry about quitting

Touch the sign on the door
it’s always said we’re open
can’t help but hat ethe other guy
can’t help myself just want to die

Every time the door chimes
could be bad men come for me
drink machine is dripping broken
I worry about quitting
Track Name: And For What
You come to me, you’re coming in hot
You say your bit, get cool but I’m not
Once you start me up you know I can’t stop
I resent that you’re OK but you’ve ruined the rest of my day
And for what?

The rider weaves through traffic and stops
At the light turning right, SUV blocked
Driver honks, rider has his lock
They both yell, this cant end well, who will be felled
And for what?

Walk the beat, random guy stopped
Don’t assert your rights with the cops
Stop n frisk, carding kids on the block
With no chance of bail it’s a justice fail, go straight to jail
And for what
Track Name: Oh Ali
Oh Ali, what your wife don't know won't hurt her
Oh Ali, meet me at the hotel after work
Oh Ali, bring your spliff and cell phone
Oh Ali, and after you come you go home.

Oh Ali, you won't hold my hand you won't say my name
Oh Ali, you say you're straight it's such a shame
Oh Ali, Mississauga makes you feel lost
Oh Ali, you drive downtown so you can get off

Oh Ali, you're so afraid your son is gay
Oh Ali, he's only six for Christ's sake
Oh Ali, because you hate yourself you get away with it
Oh Ali, I hide these bruises like I hide your secret
Track Name: Dissociative
skies flown friendly from punches and danger
bad things happen to some other body
higher up clouds blunt words warp meaning
birds don’t remember the ground
don’t remember at all

this wrinkle in time can’t give it no credit
from earth to air equals loss and forgetting
a body in motion deserves a new name
what’s done is done
let the past stay buried

the evil that men do we should be outlawed
