Track Name: Out For Too Long
I’ve been out for too long
I’ve been drinking far too much
Far too much, far too much

I’ve been working way too hard
I’ve been smoking far too much
Far too much, far too much

Then you go ahead and tell me
That you felt that I didn’t feel like singing
But you’re wrong because that’s all I want to do
It’s all I want, it’s all I want to do
Track Name: The Band
I was fed up of playing alone so I tried out a couple of bands
But they said:
You don’t sing on time
You don’t really hit the note
You don’t know all the chords
But all I wanted was to be in the band

They think they know everything about music
But all they know
Is how to sing on time
Is how to hit the note
Is how to play all the chords
But they don’t know shit about music
All I wanted was to be in the band
Track Name: Going Back To Work
My love was strong
But I shed into tears,
As I opened the door
The storm was at its peak

Tears running down my cheeks
I couldn’t look back
But I heard my love
Fall into tears

She saw me leave
Fight my way through
That damned storm again
To love and to be loved
Track Name: La Porte
I don’t know how I feel à la porte de la Baie-James
But I can’t help to think
So strong are these humans
Why can’t they rest for a while, for a while?
For a while
(money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money)
Track Name: Trees of Hope
Trees Of Hope

Tell me more my trees of hope

Tomorrow’s too late for hope

Tell me more my trees of hope

You’re so beautiful when you’re dancing with the wind,
With the wind

Tell me more my trees of hope

I’m just like you I have wings
But my feet are tied into the ground

Tell me more my trees of hope

Everything was meant to be green
But everything is turning to black,
To black
Track Name: Salluit
Land breathe oh land breathe land oh while you can
Because if they’re here it’s already too late
Now that they’ve found your riches
They’ll bleed you dry and leave you without looking back

Sorry my land
There’s nothing I can do but to sing for you
They’ve got me on a leech
I’m harmless and useless and I’m barely holding on
So land breathe land I’m depending on you
Land breathe land my land oh land breathe land
Track Name: Tired and Weak
He stood there like one of a kind, tired and weak with his shattered dreams in his hands
Overlooking a green northern valley as the sun was setting
Bright pastel colors took over the sky
While an endless rank of reindeers was walking slowly but steady towards the north
Taking advantage of the light fading out but not quite
Until the sun rose back again and again

Was it me that I saw broken down and on my knees with nothing more to give
Wondering how much more I can take
Before this machine takes me down
Track Name: I Gave
I gave my heart to the poorest family in the village
Because money don’t last
I gave my horse to the poorest family in the village
I can carry myself
I learned to work hard
I had to learn to work hard, really fast and really hard
Because my mama moved out on me
I didn’t go to school when I had to
I didn’t have a guitar back then
I couldn’t keep a 9 to 5 job
So I had to learn to work hard, really hard and really fast
Track Name: One Dead Indian
One Dead Indian

One dead Indian
At the Ipperwash Provincial Park
I hide my skin
I hide my face
I hide my skin
I hide my face
Because I’m ashamed
Of not being smarter
Able to make a change
So I hide my face
I hide my skin
I hide my face
In these times of war
War against Mother Earth
I close my eyes, sing my heart out
And dream of better days
Than these times of war
I hide my skin
I hide my face
I hide my skin
I hide my face
In my home
And native land
