Track Name: Everything is Roses
Hey, now
Why does it get so dark & grey, whenever you're away now?
You know, I wanted you to stay for just another day now
But you know, it just don't fail

Whenever I can't stand another minute, you show up right on time
And everything is roses

So, now
You say you seem to always have too much on the go now
And, no, I never see you hangin round any shows now
But you know that I don't mind,

Cause when I can't stand another minute, you show up right on time,
And clear away any bad feelings from the back of my mind
And make me remember that what we got is really one of a kind
And that everything is roses

Hey, now
Don't ever listen to what any of those losers say now
We got it made in the shade - you know that we're gonna be okay now
Cause you know that I won't fail

Whenever you can't stand another minute, I'll show up right on time
And clear away any bad feelings from the back of your mind
And make you remember that what we got is really one of a kind
And that everything is roses
Track Name: Still Sorry
Looking 'round my house, I see that everything is as it should be
I really have no reason to complain
Looking out my window, I can see a world that's waiting for me,
But I cannot escape this nagging pain

And it all keeps building up
And I feel like giving up

But, I know that I've been low, yeah
I've been lonely, I've been sorry
For the things that I've done

Why is it so easy to focus on all the little bad details,
When all the good things are sitting, plain as day?
Seems people aren't happy, unless they're perfectly unhappy -
Why does everybody wanna act this way?

And it all keeps building up
And I feel like giving up

But I know that I've been low, yeah
I've been lonely, I've been sorry
For the things that I've done
But in time, I'll be fine
If I just get you off my mind
Cause I'm still sorry
For the things that I've done
Track Name: Rendered Fat
I was rendered fat, but I'm thinkin skinny
Can't fit into my Austin Mini
The salesman tried to warn me, but - hey
I was rendered fat but I don't know why
The world can't see what's in my mind
It's not my fault, I was born this way

I was rendered fat

My momma said "forget what they say -
you can't control your DNA"
She rubbed my back, and gave me mac n cheese
My doctor said that I should exercise,
But I'm too tired to even try
I'd do some squats, but I can't breathe

I was rendered fat
Track Name: Meaning To Say
Hey - remember the day that we met?
Dishes at The Dandelion; kissed our way across the Commons
Yeah - you'd better bet
I still feel the same
In my heart, I'll always be twenty, and in love with you

I want to take you in my arms, I want to run away
Take you somewhere really far, where we can be okay
You're the only person on the planet who I can tell this to
You're the only person on the planet who understands the things I do
You're the only person on the planet I think is sound
You're the only one that I want around

Hey - remember the day that we left?
Ditched our jobs at The Dandelion; hitched our way across the country
Yeah - you'd better bet
I still feel the same
In my heart, I'll always be twenty, and in love with you
Track Name: Shawarmageddon
I was working in the shack, one morning - it's true
A customer, he snarled at me - his face was blue
I told him not to cut in line - we don't take that shit
He reeled back and he tried to hit me!
I stabbed him in the neck, but the fucker wouldn't bleed
But jumped forward, and started to feed
On the guts of the girl in the lineup before him
Then somebody shot him, square in the forehead
We all stood silent, in a moment of relief,
When we were suddenly deafened by a thousand shrieks
What was a shitty morning was to be, instead,
The dawn of the Apocalypse
Oh, yeah, the living dead

And, I know that it's strange
But they couldn't explain it
And, no matter how they tried
The just couldn't contain it
And, now, it's spread worldwide - the living dead
They wanna eat the brains out of your head

And, I guess that there's nothing to do, nothing to see
Nothing to say, except "fuck you, fuck me"
Nothing to see, nothing to say, anyway

We tried to fight them off,
But there were just too many
For every one we killed,
There'd be another twenty
There's just nowhere to hide from the undead
They wanna eat the brains out of your head

And, I guess that there's nothing to do, nothing to see
Nothing to say, except "fuck you, fuck me"
Nothing to see, nothing to say, anyway
Except "I hate Mondays"
Track Name: Party Down!
I wanna party, I wanna have a good time
But my social skills have been on the decline
And the older that I get, it seems harder to let go
I got no doubts, that it's killing me
Just sitting on my ass and smoking weed
When I could be out, having fun at a show

But there's no better time than the present
The only time we ever have is just right now
So let's all raise a glass
For getting up, off our ass
Just so we could all come out and party down

Party down, party down
Yeah, we might be loud, and a bit too proud
But we just came to party down

I got a job, responsibilities
Everywhere I go, people depend on me
Or, so it seems
But, really, that's just shit
Cause it's easy to excuse, when you got shit to do
But to never have the time, you know it just ain't true
Because you don't receive time
You know you have to make it

And there's no better time than the present
The only time we ever have is just right now
So let's all raise a glass
For getting up, off our ass
Just so we could all come out and party down

Party down, party down
Yeah, we might be loud,and a bit too proud
But we just came to party down
If you wanna get loud, then join the crowd
Cause we just came to party down
Track Name: Slingin' The Bean
Early morning, and I'm dragging my feet
Gotta get my ass to Robie St.
So I can get that coffee on the go
Time already, there's still sleep in my eye
Grit my teeth, as I open the blinds
And start another day slinging the bean

Ten cars deep, already
It's gonna be crazy, it's gonna be crazy
Gotta keep it steady
They're caffeine-sick, they need their fix, yeah
Always at the ready
Cause you just can't stop, when you're caffeinating the whole town

Lots so dusty, that I'm chewing on dirt
Steamed milk all over my shirt
In fact, I'm always covered from head-to-toe
They keep on coming, I just can't get a break
Don't know how much my body can take
But I guess I'll have another shot of espresso

Ten cars deep, already
It's gonna be crazy, it's gonna be crazy
Gotta keep it steady
They're caffeine-sick, they need their fix, yeah
Always at the ready
Cause you just can't stop, when you're caffeinating the whole town

CAFFEINE MACHINE! CAFFEINE MACHINE!
Said, here's your latte
Give me your money
And have a real nice day
Put down your cellphone
And take your coffee
And go
The fuck
Away

Quitting time, already
I'm feeling fuckin crazy, I'm feeling fuckin crazy
My hands are so unsteady
I'm caffeine-sick, I feel like shit
But I got another coffee ready
Cause you just can't stop, when you're over-caffeinated now
Track Name: Ghost On Charles St.
I remember how how we sat there, soaking
With the rain, like lace woven over your knees
I remember your face, and how you weren't joking
And how the world became numb all around me
You liked the sweetness of the boy inside me
I liked the sweetness of your lips on mine
Ain't nothing in the world that's sweeter
Than falling in love for the very first time

But this time, it will not last
Cause all good things must come to pass
It's all okay, but all the same
They seem to fly by way too fast
For all the tears and all the pain
I'd do it all again the same
Cause nothing ventured, nothing gained
And I'd be nothing without you

I remember how the days were longer
And the longer I'd wait, the more that I'd want
Just to see you again, before the daylight faded
So I could take something to the house I'd haunt
Cause no matter the bullshit kept trapped in our houses
Or the problems I'd drag around in my mind
Nothing could bend the light that you brought me
Every time you were there by my side
Track Name: Wide Awake & Lazy
I just couldn't get it right, so I turned to one of my friends
Asked how he got through life, and he said "well, that depends.
But, what's important is:
what you put out is what you get back in the end"
Then asked if I had any money that I could lend him

And it seems to be the hardest thing for me
To get my head around, cause I'm so lost without you
And every single day I fall into the fray
Don't know what else to say, cause I'm so lost without you
And I can't sleep - whoa-oh
No, not a wink - no-oh
I can't sleep - whoa
Ever since you've gone and left me all alone

Everybody always telling me - only thing that's ever true
You sew your own good fortune, from the good things that you do
And I reply "I can't deny, I know that it is nothing new"
Then smoke a joint, forget the point and watch the tube
Track Name: La Poutine Verte
On a bender, in Montreal
Seeing double and we're gonna fall
Face-first, into the green poutine

In the alley, behind a couche-tard
I think we're taking this a little too far
Who wants to eat some green poutine?

I'll bet you twenty bucks
That you don't have the guts
To do it, man
* I think I can, I think I can, I think I can *
Do you need some more persuasion
Or will you rise to the occasion
To do it, man?
* I think I can I think I can, I think I can *

Green poutine
