Track Name: Diamonds
I see a lot of people on my way
I see the good kids, bad kids on my way
I see the yellow operators and what they say
Always yelling at the kids who just can't pay
But all that good shit, bad shit can't compare,
To when I see those diamonds up the stairs
I mean, how many more days can I really stay?
I mean, how many more days can I really stay?
I could stay forever
I think that I could stay forever
Track Name: Edmonton
Looking back with fresher eyes, I was introduced to heaven on earth
I forced my way into a group of people that would love me if I gave them the chance
I guess the rest really wrote itself, we were drunk and naked half of the time
Way back when getting drunk was an ambition, not a problem

That was a crazy summer back in Edmonton

Nineteen was my true dumb year, but it was fun and I can hardly regret it
Whole nights in the living room, and we were drunk but we can hardly forget it
Crowd surf in the living room, if we could still stand up then we'd catch you
Get some more at the liquor store, our god was an open sign

That was a crazy summer back in Edmonton
Track Name: In My Bed Again
The first time I saw you, I didn't know what I was supposed to do
Just keep a smile going and maybe I can get next to you
With one line to give, not just anyone could have made it through
To you

What do I have to say to you to get you in my bed again?

Climbing up the stairwell, well you can ask me anything that's true
And I'll tell you as long as I can get a cigarette from you
But now I smoke the reds cuz I didn't want any more of those blues
No more blues

What do I have to say to you to get you in my bed again?
Track Name: Waste My Days
They say I waste my days no matter what I do
No matter what I do they say I waste my days
If I was killing hookers on the English Bay
They'd say at least it's something for a man to do

It doesn't matter if I call in sick
I do it all the time

They say I waste my days no matter what I do
No matter what I do they say I waste my days
If I was cutting bums and I was eating strays
They's say at least it's something for a man to do

It doesn't matter if I call in sick
I do it all the time
Track Name: Who Cares
If there's one thing that I know, it's that God is over
If there's two things, it's that he's hiding under assumed names
Guess stars and planets have a better ring
But energy and souls are all God's things

If there's three things that I know, well... I can't remember them all
Come on Jesus, come on Jesus, give me something I can use
I'd take the heavy load if you'd insist
Be the first important person to exist

Who cares?
Cuz I'm never gonna die

When I was sixteen, I was caught in a fire or religion
When I was nineteen, I was caught in the fire between Brenna's legs
It wasn't really difficult to choose
There was only one of those I was willing to lose

Now I'm twenty-five, in the middle of a war with my memory
Come on Jesus, come on Jesus, give me something I can use
I'd take the heavy load if you'd insist
Be the first important person to exist

Who cares?
Cuz I'm never gonna die
Who cares
About some God jerking off in the sky?
Track Name: Gonna Die
I was just a kid when I threw it in the bin
Now I've reached that age where I can do it all again
My friends are getting jobs and I'm just lying in this bed
Getting old, getting sick, gonna die

Fishing through a dumpster with some papers with my name
The new hospital says it needs proof that I am who I say
My word isn't enough to get the stitches off my face
Getting old, getting sick, gonna die

I was in the kitchen getting something for my cold
While you were in your classroom wondering if you had a soul
You wondered if you had it, but I knew I had my cold
Getting old, getting sick, gonna die

I'm looking for some answers but I'm afraid of the truth
I was just the middle of the middle of your youth
You never had to say it, always knew you'd cut me loose
Getting old, getting sick, gonna die

Gonna die
Track Name: Under the Edge
I'm living under the edge, way down beneath
I'll fix a little something to get my toes in the sea
From four to one, that's nine hours in the sack
And from one to four, that's fifteen waiting to get back

Well oh, oh oh
Woe is me, woe is me, right?
No no

I'm living under the edge, way down in the dirt
Let me tell you people things the weeds have heard
Well, I'm a torture artist
I'm a defender of truth
I'm an eloquent scribe
I'm a bag full of shit

Well oh, oh oh
Woe is me, woe is me, right>
No no

I've got a thirsty temper, it subsides in a sip
And if the floor is level, then I'm not biting my lip
Well, there's a man downstairs
He's got his foot in his eye
Yelling hell to the doves
Dripping pus from his sties

Well oh, oh oh
Woe is me, woe is me, right?
No no
Track Name: Dead Like Me
Your heart beats hard
You're skin and bones
Your right hand lies
And your body moans
And if you wanna die
Well, you can do that too

But it's hard when you're dead, like me

The cantor says,
"You're going straight to hell,
Boy, you're not so dumb,
You know it's common sense
That when your body dies
Well then your soul does too"

But it's hard when you're dead, like me
Track Name: Take the Lie
Well, you're waiting for the sun to set to kill the light,
Til you go on up to Julie's for an awful night
You can smoke inside at Julie's no, she doesn't care
You can see the powdered drugs floating in the air
And that moment in the evening passes right on by
And you're too drunk to remember why you were excited
And you're sitting on the couch beside some little shit
And he's yelling at the girls, but they're all finding love

And he turns his face towards you and his breath is wet
He's got a friend in Guelph who stole a truck of cigarettes
And he offers you a take and you look at his face
That shows the monetary wisdom of a peasant out in China
So you go to grab your coat, then you see her standing there
You were leaving out of boredom, now it's out of terror
There's a moment in the evening between three an four
Your old lover's standing laughing, asking them for more

Why don't you go outside an find someone to take the lie?
Track Name: Rape Song
It's true, there's a full moon rising on the edge of town, on the edge of town
That's how you could see him coming before he pinned you down and tore your gown
Yeah, it's true, yeah, it's true, just close your eyes, think of better times
Think of me, think of me and his cold embrace won't leave a trace

It's true, you're a single shadow where there once way two, one for him and you
It's true, there's no one coming for a brave rescue, nothing you can do
And it's not fair, it's not fair, just close your eyes, think of better times
Think of me, think of me and his cold embrace won't leave a trace

It's true, there's a red sun rising on the edge of town, on the edge of town
That's how you can see him coming, but you won't let me down, you won't make a sound
Yeah, it's true, yeah, it's true, just close your eyes, think of better times
Think of me, think of me and his cold embrace won't leave a trace

I'll be waiting for you at home
And I'll love you like nothing went wrong
