Track Name: Novels
Spineless
Feeling pulled apart at the seams
Careless
Sleepwalking to your dreams

You kid yourself that it's all waiting on you, kid
And I know where you get your romance from
But it's time to listen to all your supporting characters
You're not the protagonist to everyone

But you're soaking up volumes underneath the covers
Avid readers fall hopelessly in love with others, and themselves
Going out to all the bleeding hearts with papercut hands
Lonely nights and late-night bands
While you're writing your novel, just understand that we all are

So get on the road, Jack
If that's who you think you are
It's a wide world
You better gas up that car

But while you're out there on your odyssey for one
Penelope might not leave the porch light on

And you're soaking up volumes, taking it in
It's the red-eye flight to two AM
Sleepless nights from daydreams all the time

You're soaking up volumes underneath the covers
Avid readers fall hopelessly in love with others, and themselves
Going out to all the bleeding hearts with papercut hands
Lonely nights and late-night bands
While you're writing your novel, just understand that we all are

Soaking up volumes underneath the covers, avid readers fall hopelessly in love
They fall hopelessly in love
Track Name: Alleyways
Out on my own
Finding shit I can disturb, love is a verb
Taking a loan
Saw a man about a job, there's a minor complication

Half of the time
I feel bad about the way, compassion can decay
Towing a line
In the sand, getting washed up, I'm not even sloshed.

I'm back to Alleyways
I'm back to Alleyways

I'm out of my mind
But I listen to the sound, love is a noun
A moment in time
And it's a hand in the darkness, tearing me apart

I'm back to Alleyways
I'm back to Alleyways

I'll pass on marijuana, but man, if you could grab me a Keith's
That'd be sweet
I'm buzzing off a summer that mostly saw me gnashing my teeth
So to speak
A minor complication is loving spilling out in the streets
Bon appetit!
And August isn't fresh, but at least it doesn't smell like defeat
We're still on our feet

I'm back to Alleyways
I'm back to Alleyways
Track Name: YYC
I've got friends that head out to the West Coast
Waving goodbye with a sigh and also a sneer
But like Joel Plaskett, I'll drink red wine and watch them go
The skies are getting wider, things are getting brighter right here

I've had nights that made me feel electric
When the band's on fire and there's a girl that wants to know my name
We've got some hometown heroes
That get loved enough to stick around
What's more appealing that feeling like you're feeling no pain?

Oh, we're only getting started
Oh, we're only getting started

And all the shit that gets said about you
We say to ourselves on repeat
There's a difference between staying grounded
And just staring down at your feet
So let's try to crack a smile
While we keep on breaking ground
A city's built of beating hearts and hear them all around

I've got friends tired of playing to empty rooms
Packing up a U-Haul, moving to Ontario
And I understand, it's more work to build a house than buy one
But in the end you might feel more at home
Track Name: In The Dark
We serpentine the avenue from one bar to the next
Connecting neon notions in the night
Friday evening vagabonds with wide-eyed revelations
Reaching out for stories we could write

I've seen you in the morning glow
And afternoon's embrace
With twilight wrapped around you like a scarf
But standing here beside you with a street lamp for your eyes
I know your beauty comes alive in the dark
Track Name: Cautious Dinosaurs
There's a feeling in my heart that says I stand a chance
But I don't have the heart to chance it
I'll just walk around this party casting awkward glances
Heating up a beer with sweaty hands

And there's a feeling in my head that says I've had too many
It's growing every time you look at me
And just because you mention everything I love in passing
Doesn't mean that you'll go home with me

If everyone had a tremble in their bones
We'd all end up alone like I do
We'd all die out like cautious dinosaurs
No one fails to score like I do

There's a feeling in my pants that's hard to rectify
A tightness in my throat when I speak
Must be a chemical reaction I am missing
If we're out of time let's pick this up next week
Track Name: St. Gregory
We set out into the dark
Past cul-de-sacs and across the boulevard
We were moving on, but we didn't know it yet
Slowed our feet so you could light a cigarette

Young flame on a frost night
Young fingers fumbling around in the dark
True love is a hearth fire
And we're all out here chasing after sparks

We set out into the dark
Across the fields and snow-covered parks
We were moving on, but you couldn't let it go
Footprints in the falling snow
We were moving, always moving on

Young flame on a frost night
Young fingers fumbling around in the dark
True love is a hearth fire
And we're all out here chasing after sparks
Track Name: Nectarine
I tore at your skin like the sweetest nectarine
We made quite a scene up against the hallway wall
The mesh couldn't hold the ball of kerosene
Grasping away to embrace the siren's call

Let me hold down, let me hold down this rush
Tear it all down, tear it all down in lust
Take it all in, take what you want and needed
You'll be the one to hold me up

A flurry of light and a loaded magazine
Dotted lines and a blurried concrete walls
Bristled skin all seeping gasoline
Carried away and become the evening's thrall

Let me hold down, let me hold down this rush
Tear it all down, tear it all down in lust
Take it all in, take what you want and needed
You'll be the one to hold me up
Track Name: Passenger Seat
Happenstance and hideaway
Rain on Sunday afternoon
You fucked it up and pulled your hair
Waiting for the other shoe to drop

Passenger seat, safety nets
Gliding out the front door from your arms
Passing the time, falling apart
Dreaming back to where you want to be

Passenger seat, nearly asleep
Floating as the ground all falls away
Emerald green, wrapped in the sheets
