Track Name: 169 King Street
I see a shallow depth of field and sepia tones
A funeral procession and an empty home
There's a town along the river where I come from
With a wealth of history that's all but gone

A church bell rings and for a moment I am lost
Until the passing of a crow swiftly steals my thoughts
They say the days are getting longer but the sun hangs low
And the howling winter wind is so damn cold

I see a looming revolution in a time of need
But there's a sinking sense of failure in every word I read
The times they are a changin’ but they won’t change me
I find a vital sense of purpose in community

They say the days are getting longer but the sun hangs low
And the howling winter wind has never felt so damn cold

I will stand my ground on the front lines
Without a doubt in my mind I’m on the losing side
But these four walls are no worse for the wear
So I will go to my grave knowing I was there

I see a looming revolution in a time of need
But there's a sinking sense of failure in every word I read
The times they are a changin’ but they won’t change me
I find a vital sense of purpose in community
Track Name: Don't Be Like Me Brendan
I miss the days when we would stay up late
and nights never ended with conscious decisions
we fell asleep when we were tired
and went to work with the party still ringing in our ears

And I can't say today that I miss the hangovers
It's much easier making it through the day

But Everybody needs to grow up some day X3
Sometimes Life gets in the way

When my father was my age
he had one child and another on the way
I've got friends with children and homes to settle down
I've got one foot in the clouds and the other on the ground

And I can't say today that I miss the hangovers
It's much easier making it through the day

But Everybody needs to grow up some day X3
Sometimes Life gets in the way

But Everybody needs to grow up some day X3
Sometimes Life gets in the way
Track Name: The Queen and The Sea (Farler's Fury cover)
To the queen of Durham City, you've been looking much more pretty
Now that you've become someone's wife
It's been long since you've told me "It's like I have known you,
Since the very first years of my life"

Years have come and gone since you and I once met
A friendship and a freedom that we both shall not forget
As I pass you on the street I think of who we both become
How our lives have changed and where we both went wrong

The gods surely must be pissed as the rain it did persist
And the crops slowly dissapeared beneath the waves
A deluge like no other, hold me close my dear mother
For I fear that this one will send us to our graves

Remembering the triumphs and the times we worked so hard
The failures and the winters in which we nearly starved
Thinking of the times this land has kept us out of harm
To think one day we're doing to have to sell this goddamn farm

So I took a trip, left this place for a while
Up the mighty St-Laurence, down to Prince Edward's Isle
Where I stayed with some locals, saw my old friend Brett
I sang songs with young Patrick, a night not soon to forget
