Track Name: Lord Tunderin' Jesus
Lord Tunderin" Jesus

She said to come grab a chair
And pull it up to the fire
You’re cold and lonely
Like you’ve never gone this far before
When I was a child I was
Never one for tradition
But if superstition brings you comfort
Well then who am I to throw stones

There’s no hockey night tonight
No one stompin’ on the floor
Nobody’s heading out west
Haulin’ Margo’s Cargo
Reggies got the rig
Luke’s guitar is gone
The east coast is like Sudbury
Lost without a song

Well I don’t know if there’s a
Heaven or a Hell
And I can’t tell you what it was I did yesterday
With secrets unlocked and knots un-tied
There’s no way we’ll make it
To Edmonton tonight

There’s no hockey night tonight
No one stompin’ on the floor
Nobody’s heading out west
Haulin’ Margo’s Cargo
Reggies got the rig
Luke’s guitar is gone
The east coast is like Sudbury
Lost without a song

There’s no hockey night tonight
No one stompin’ on the floor
Nobody’s heading out west
Haulin’ Margo’s Cargo
Reggies got the rig
Luke’s guitar is gone
The east coast is sorrowful
For it’s forgotten son

Montreal Blue

When you came back
You weren’t alone
Hard times had fallen
Dragged down by the stone
The kids are hungry
The baby is cryin’
The streets are empty
But we’re still survivin’
Will there be work tomorrow?
I don’t know
Better times are coming
So I been told

I don’t know what it is
That keeps me hanging on
But I know
Its got something to do with you

When you’re brought up
On broomsticks & hammers
Baptized in the toilets
With the sinners and the scammers
Who’ve left me up here
Just to hang
These are the things that
I cannot change

I don’t know what it is
That keeps me hanging on
But I know
Its got something to do with you

So I’ll Just stay
I won’t unpack
Cause when I run away
They just bring me back
I won’t go to church
I pray in the tenement
I don’t believe in justice
I just believe in punishment

I don’t know what it is
That keeps me hanging on
But I know
Its got something to do with you

Track Name: Passing Cars
Passing Cars

Was a child in the summer time
An old man in the fall
I was quite in the winter time
Cause I was dead to the world
And when the spring time comes around
You know I’ll make her my girl

We`ll dance under the stars
Twinkling from the headlights of the
Passing Cars x2

I had been wounded and torn
Consumed in the flames
With the promise to be reborn
I was lifted by the ones
Who really are the ones
I was lifted by the ones
who really are the ones

We`ll dance under the stars
Twinkling from the headlights of the
Passing Cars x2
Track Name: Gina
Gina

Gina says to me
If you can’t be
Perfect then you might as well be interesting.
Gina says to me
Over my coffee
I like the name of your band, why don’t you write a song about me?

She’s the Queen of Coffee x 3

Gina says to me
She always starts off on
The wrong foot
But when she gets the time maybe she’ll come callin’

She’s the Queen of Coffee x 3

Nothing that I say
To Gina makes her smile
Gina says to me
don’t tell me fantasies while
I am torn apart
Pinned and slashed
Stitched back together
Just like he’d always intended

She’s the Queen of Coffee x 3

Gina says to me
If you can’t be
Perfect then you might as well
Pretend

Track Name: The Final Moments of Christopher McCandless
The Final Moments of Christopher McCandless

These legs these legs they have betrayed me
Under this sky Under these stars
The call into the wild night
Has my heart racing all this time

I can`t tell you how many wrong turns
Have led me here to the moment of last breath
All alone on a bus to Fairbanks I am skin and bones

Frail and human
A lone wolf listenin` to the forest
Howlin to the moon
Singin to the gods I`ll be coming home soon

On a bus to Fairbanks
I fall asleep
Howlin`to the cries
Of the final beat of the beast
Weep nothing for me
It is meant to be
The wrong turns and right turns
I guess we`ll never know
The last moments lost

Under her pail moon glow

Track Name: Cowboy & Indians
Cowboys & Indians

We played a game in Ohio
Winner take all, leave nothing to show.
I had a girl, she had a plan for me.
Stole the buckeye from my pocket and called me a theif.

By the 4th of July I was all alone
No cavalry came, no ticket home.
She left for big sky country.
Filled my pockets with buckeyes all-y-all come free.

So long now I'll wave good-bye.
The good guys will win this time and the others, they'll just try.

Let's play cowboys & Indians.
I'll be one you can be millions.
Givin' a La-Z-Boy one last stand
And just like George I'll be a gentleman
Always taking my medicine.
Now there's too many holes on this horse.

Back in my home town the River Raisin's feared
When it swells in the season for hard court tears.
The river runs strong, the river runs free
But it can't it wash away bitter rivalries.

I think about George, the prodigal son.
Some battles are lost and others are won.
Now he rides so high all dressed in green.
Here's to Michigan boys with sad stories
Who restore themselves to former glory.

Let's play cowboys & Indians.
I'll be one you can be millions.
Givin' a La-Z-Boy one last stand
And just like George I'll be a gentleman
Always taking my medicine.
Now there's too many holes on this horse.

When you take the boat out tonight
Will you think of me on the other side
When the clear lake frowns and the clouds they cry
I'll shine a light to be your guide

When crystal waters calm down and the moon it shines
You can hear my voice through the whispering pines
But don't you weep for the lonesome loon
That fellow knows nothing of any other tune

Stay where you're at, I'll come where you're to
Only when it's the right time for me and you
And not a moment for too soon
We'll get together under Fairbank's moon

Watch for shooting stars tonight
I'll sign my name in those starry lines
And if you miss me in broad daylight
I'll show you dragon-flies

When the boat slips below the water line
That's OK boys, it's by my design
Dry it out & get ready for the show
Cause I got a song for the radio

When crimson skies fall for midnight blue
The grace amoung us, oh what love can do
And not a moment for too soon
Will we get together under Fairbank's moon

Watch for shooting stars tonight
I'll sign my name in those starry lines
And if you miss me in broad daylight
I'll show you dragon-flies

We'll sit around this fire side
Watch those embers float up to the sky
And all around these nickel mines
I'll show you signs
That I'm coming home

Home coming, coming home
