Track Name: Old Soul
If you say you’re such an old soul
Why are you at such unease?
If you say life is a chemical reaction
How do you explain the things you believe in?
If you say that love doesn’t exist
Why do you keep falling in and out of it?

If I’ve got to be strong…

If you say you’re checking out
I dare you to leave no empty threats
If you say that you can’t forgive
Can you just forget?
If you say you want to be alone
You’re still welcome in my home

If I’ve got to be strong
I will man up for you
If you’re lost in the wilderness
I’ll go find you

‘Cause I’m your man
And I will do anything I have to do to get through to you

If I’ve got to be strong
I will man up for you
If you’re lost in your own head I’ll go find you
'Cause I’m your man
And I will do anything that I have to do
Track Name: Great White
Great White

You were my great white north
Frozen, unpassable terrain
My vision in the snow
Haunted and hollow
You were everywhere I wanted to go

Great White

You were my great white shark
Blood-thirsty, circling me
My terror of the seas
Ghostly enemy
You were just a bad dream

The day will come
You will rise again
Track Name: Fight or Flight
I’m watching you like a hawk
I'm watching you like a hawk
You were my prey that got away
I have wasted night after night
Hunting you
With that thorn in my wing
From the last time I got too close

I’m watching you like a hawk
I'm watching you like a hawk
You were my pretty that got away
Oh you got away

I know that I trigger your fight or flight
But you say that it makes you feel alive
Oh you say that it makes you feel alive
Track Name: Oh Vancouver
Oh Vancouver, in my arms
Like a dying lover
Even in your storms I hold you close
Enough to feel your last breath, your icy surrender

I know I have to go
I know I have to go
‘Cause you won’t look me in the eye
When you fuck me over anymore

The last smoke of the evening
Leaves me breathless dying and reeling
Thinking what comes next?
What comes next?
Taking comfort in the spirits and vices I know best

But I could find them anywhere
On any corner anywhere
But it doesn’t make anything any more clear

He comes over on the highway on the coast
And when he gets here I already know
That the city was the better lover
And I still have to go
Track Name: Just One Note
How much can you say with just one note?
The worst part of it all was when you said I ceased to be a song
Not even a minor tune
Just an unending nagging drone

But it’s a song with words that are never sung
Yet I wailed and sang until my voice gave out
It was enough to say it
With just one note
Track Name: Flax Flower Blue
I will fade into the fields
I am flax flower blue

Oh living skies, oh wild prairie
The calling, it stops me dead in my tracks
Calls me back

Do I run to or from you?
What do I do?

Oh living skies, oh wild prairie
The falling snow
The chills in my bones

Do I run to or from you,
Flax flower blue?

Oh living skies, oh wild prairie
After my wandering
Are these old roads all that I will ever know?
Track Name: Lord I'm Trying
Oh lord I’m trying
To be a good girl
I’ve stopped drinking
I’ve stopped whoring
But that oil keeps on burning
And I can’t go gently into that good night
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
I put up a good fight

And why should I run?

Oh lord I’m trying
To decide
I’m up all night spinning angles in my mind
But there’s no doubt it’s real
The slow burning ache I feel
And all this hurt and pain
It keeps me so stuck
In these ruts
With no where left to run

And why should I run?

Oh lord I’m trying
I can’t be saved
I’m sick and twisted
Drunk and depraved
My reputation precludes me
I know this much
So pass that parting glass
If I’m already fucked

And why should I run?
Track Name: Chasing a Dragon
Do you miss me?
I’ve have been busy
Running in old dark alleys
I picked up when you called
In your long, cold dark night
Here I am a junkie again
You are long gone

You got me high
So high
You got me high
And I don’t suppose it gets better
Than this light
This pale blue morning light

You stay in the driver’s seat
You don’t trust me to move
To where we want to meet

You called, I went back
Knowing but not doing better
My actions will catch up
To my racing intentions
I will get there

But you lied
You lied
Oh you are good
And I won’t do better
You’re a good liar
‘Cause you believe
The words you speak
Through your blood stained teeth

Baby, baby be
More than a fix
I know only I can heal
And love me
But these habits don’t fade fast
They hang on
And now I’m digging deeper
Drawing darker
Chasing rabbits
Chasing a dragon
