Track Name: The Checker
Listen now baby
I've come to check your piece
No time for J-rootin' leaners
Get down and Screef
Track Name: Alberta
My baby she's left me, gone away from me
My baby she's left me, said she'd pray for me
Alberta
Alberta without me
Without me
My baby she's left me for a richer man I'm sure
I should have known she'd be such a whore
Alberta
Alberta without me
Without me
My baby she's left me, gone away from me
My baby she's left me, said she'd pray for me
Alberta
Alberta without me
Without me
Canmore!
Lethbridge!
Medicine Hat!
Fort Mac!
Track Name: A Happy Tune for Choppin' Wood (Revisited)
Took an ax and I chopped some wood
Gotta get choppin' while the choppin's good
The heat is nice 'cause it heats ya twice
Gotta get choppin' while the choppin's nice

Gonna build me a fire and stoke it some
Invite all my friends to come
Gonna get those flames ten feet high
Watch the stars grow in the sky

Took an ax and I chopped some wood
Gotta get choppin' while the choppin's good
The heat is nice 'cause it heats ya twice
Gotta get choppin' while the choppin's nice
Track Name: The Dollarama Dude
We keep on actin' like there ain't no problem
When it's clear that we're chin deep in shit
We've got this lousy monetary system
And our debt is a bottomless pit

Pipelines

Hard times

Corporations have got us all very busy makin' useless products to sell
And thinking: "If you've got a brand new car you're doin' well"
The economy must be healthier than you
We're discretely being subdued by the Dollarama Dude

We're gonna sell our future to the present
They'll be conceived in a petri dish
Ignore the pleas of our First Nations
Make sure it's dry as you're shoving it in

Pipelines

Ignorance is bliss, and you'll still reap just what you sow
Will we be punished for our insolence? Are you sure you want to know?
Who's filtering your water? Who's growing all your food?
We're discretely being subdued by the Dollarama Dude

We keep on actin like there ain't no problem
When it's clear that we're chin deep in shit.
We've got this lousy monetary system
And our debt is a bottomless pit.

Pipelines

Hard times
Track Name: Gonna Get My Shovel From My Shed (Gonna Dig A Hole)
Gonna get my shovel from my shed, gonna dig a hole
Gonna get my shovel from my shed, gonna dig a hole
While my baby bleeds inside on the kitchen floor

If you're seeking any good advice, better ask the wise
If you're seeking any good advice, better ask the wise
But be advised that the wise can also tell you lies

Gonna get my shovel from my shed, gonna dig a hole
Gonna get my shovel from my shed, gonna dig a hole
While my baby bleeds inside on the kitchen floor
Track Name: Keep in Time
I've been tryin
I've been tryin
To live without you, baby, I've been tryin
I guess I'm fine and I keep in time
I just can't seem to get you off my mind
No, I just can't seem to get you off my mind

I first saw you from across the road on a snowy night in Northwest Ontario
I've smelled your skin, I've kissed your hair
Sometimes you'd leave my house without your underwear
Sometimes you'd leave my house without your underwear

I've made attempts at moving on but it always falls apart before too long
I loved you then, I love you still
And If I'm not wrong, I think I always will
Oh god, I hope I'm wrong but I think I always will

I'm giving into stress, I'm smoking cigarettes
The dog barfed on the couch again
I'm sick of cleaning it
And every cloudy day I get a little bit depressed
But I've been tryin
I've been tryin
I've been tryin

I've been tryin
I've been tryin
To live without you, baby, I've been tryin
I guess I'm fine and I keep in time
I just can't seem to get you off my mind
No, I just can't seem to get you off my mind
Track Name: Lean and Mean
Hey now baby
Don't be so mean
It's cold outside
And I'm lean

Hey now baby
Don't be so lean
It's cold outside
And I'm mean

Hey now baby
Don't be so lean
It's cold outside
And I'm mean
You're my Queen
Track Name: Serendipity Cafe
Before that time that I looked into your eyes
I thought that they were blue
But they were grey
At the Serendipity Cafe

My heart beats slowly because I know
Three months must come and go til you get home
Cause yesterday I drove you far away
But we stopped beside the bay
At the Serendipity Cafe

While on the road you stared out the window
You said: I can't believe I'm doing this again
I said I wish you'd stay, I can't bear to separate
So let's procrastinate
At the Serendipity Cafe
Track Name: Sulsa
Yeayyyaaahhhhh
