"Dead on the page. Too sincere. Clearly repressed. Backward, quaint, naive, anachronistic."

Track Name: Hive Mind 2009
Looking forward for the first time
To the hive mind where we intertwine
Looking to the bright white light
Thinking that life might be alright

Everybody real here
Making me feel weird and insincere
Far away crystal clear
Think i may just disappear

Where did the confidence go?
I don't know
Track Name: Dead Inside Joke
You will drown in your delusion
Like an ice cube in the ocean
Like twin shadows in slow motion
Couldn't capture that illusion

Like a puppet on a string
You will dance along with everything
You will never hear me singing
No one cares about your thing

Now your teeth are so white they glisten
I'm so happy that you're with him
I feel better when I'm ignoring it
No you won't hear me forgetting soon

I will love you like a child
I will quit you like a hard drug
I am sober and defenceless
Just like everybody else

I will love you like a child
I will quit you like a hard drug
I am sober and defenceless
Just like everybody else
Just like everybody else
Track Name: Adult Song
All I want is to be close to you
And know little things about your life
Do you have any brothers or sisters?
Are they married?
Where do they live?
I'd love nothing more than to lean their names
And maybe one day I'll know their faces

All I want is to move to the city
And rent by month our own apartment
Ideally one with a fire escape
We can sit outside with the wind blowing in our air
We'll watch the traffic pass
I'll ask about your awful day dear

All I want is a grown up job
To pay the bills and fill the hours
Save some money to afford
The kinds of things that make us feel like adults
Until we pay our student debts
I think we're going to have to rough it out

All I want is to sit close to you
On the TTC that's headed downtown
Maybe we'll go to the AGO
I know you like to look at paintings
I'd love nothing more than to know about art
And maybe one day I'll what you see
Track Name: I Bet I Miss You
I have a hand and you held it
When I held it out
I had a heart and you broke it
And you swept it up

I have a dark side
I'm dented
I'm bent and demented

I have a gun and it's loaded
But not pointed yet
Track Name: Kandinsky
The whole world is gray
You don't believe it
The ghost went away
You don't believe in the past anyway
You don't believe me
Of course, I will stay in bed

Make me your friend
I don't believe you
I'll take what I get
As it passes through you
The whole world is flat
You don't believe that the past really passed us by
Track Name: Can't Seem To See Things The Way They Are
I'm not going to stop
I'm not ready to heal you
I heard you're giving it up
You're not ready to feel it

There is beauty here
There is beauty here
Be mine be mine

I can't seem to lose
I'm not ready to draw
I can't seem to see things the way the way

There is beauty here
There is beauty here
Be mine be mine be mine

I should have asked what you thought of me
Before you moved away
I should have asked what you think of me

I'm not really here (I'm not really here)
I guess nevermind
I'm not going to look (I'm not really here)
I guess I'll never find it

There is beauty here
There is beauty here
Be mine be mine
There is music here
There is music here
Be mine be mine be mine
Track Name: Lake Swimmer
Lake swimmer lake swimmer
Late bloomer late bloomer
High water high water
Why bother why bother

There was nothing that I could have told you
There was something in your blazing eyes you always knew
Getting there wouldn't be hard
Something came in front of you and caught you off your guard

I was wishing I could be twenty-two
Still taking off my shoes and following you
All around my backyard
Places in the day that didn't seem so far away

Lake swimmer lake swimmer
Late bloomer late bloomer
High water high water
Why bother why bother
Risk taker risk taker
Taste maker taste maker
Hill climber hill climber
Cliff diver cliff diver

There are so many things I couldn't tell you
There are so many little times that I decided not to
Your laugh was always pretty anyway
Always thought I knew when they would take it all away

There was nowhere that you didn't want to go
Every path was always twisted and I always told you so
I heard that you were doing well in school
Something came in front of you and caught you off your cool

Tree burner tree burner
Better keep running keeping running
Shape shifter shape shifter
Seek shelter seek shelter

Even the statues in the corners wept
After everybody else had left
And I couldn't even sign my name
We always did think the same
Track Name: We Both Woke Up
Everyone's listening
Where are the answers?
Where is the future now?

Where did the sun go?
He hid from his shadow
How will the ice melt now?

The earth began to spin and I held on so tightly
With my tired aching hands
The sky began to fall and it never stopped
No not until we both woke up

Someone is out there
You gotta believe me
Where is my good friend now?
Over the water
Over the rainbow
On Lake Ontario

The earth began to spin and I held on so tightly
With my tired aching hands
The sky began to fall and it never stopped
No not until we both woke up

Not until we both woke up
Not until we both woke up
Track Name: To Feel Closer To You
I moved out to North Toronto
Wore my shoes down
Let my hair grow long
Watched every episode of Sex & the City
To feel closer to you

I went down to the local bookshop
Do you have anything about the life of van Gogh?
I'm going to memorize the lines of his portraits
And feel closer to you

But honey I don't want to make this about me
Honey I don't want to make it a big deal
Honey I don't want to stop and start
I already know I'm gonna break your heart
Honey I don't want to end where you begin

I moved out to North Toronto
Wore my shoes down
Let my hair grow long
Watched every episode of Iron Chef
Just to feel closer to you

But honey I don't want to make this about me
Honey I don't want to make it a big deal
Honey I don't want to stop and start
I already know I'm gonna break your heart
Honey I don't want to end where you begin
