I've been getting away with a crime I've got others suffering for these sins of mine I wish I felt a little worse about it at the time Just tell me who I've got to pay to get this off my mind I've been getting away with a crime And you start to feel you're on the losing side They say that if you're stealing hearts, don't leave the spine And it's just a waste if you look back for signs of life I can't help feeling I'm a little late to the party Have I been getting away with a crime If I ain't getting any sleep at night? I wish I could just keep my back turned and keep my pride But I can't keep from feeling all that's mine ain't mine And I can't help feeling I'm a little late to the party
If you're a part of something that's bigger than you Big enough to lose your mind to happily Take it, cause you're the envy of every overthinking author Making self-destructive art They can write an ending that will put your foolish heart in doubt And leave you second-guessing just to make you feel the shit they felt Cause it's a habit of the heart to gather every small offense And build a case against What your head's trying to tell you makes sense So if what you've got helps you sleep and wake up glad it's all still there Hold it closer than your heart could bear And if there's room enough to spare Any extra that you've got is still your share
Am I going to see you alone, or can I hold my breath? All these times you're not home, how can we make up them? And all those things that we'd known when we made this mess If you're going to be on the road, I'm going to keep my address We're in love like that Not in love like that Am I going to see you this year, can I feel your breath? All those nights you're not here, I leave you space in bed We know we're in this for tears just as bad as it gets And oh I miss you my dear, but we're going to make it yet I watched you leave in the early light I kept you home in another life We're in love like that, I'll see you again

What a long way to go To find a city frozen under the snow And a sun that would rise so slow They would swear there was a buried soul "If you can make it til it ain't so cold You're going to know it when the grain turns gold." Please ignore the homeless heart Of the city, it bears the marks Of the promises the years forgot And what a long road to be down That left us searching for the edge of the town And a soul that they would swear could be found Hands safely tied, all bound up in wire And what a long way to go ...
The moon was a glow, it was the only light It wouldn't show enough that could feed our eyes And so they would grow into a dangerous size I was watching you crawl out of the forest I couldn't know, I didn't ask you and you wouldn't tell The last of the low light fell You're carrying fire out of the forest All the animals hide but one that was hunting you As only a child Fearing the hands of the one you could trust Tracing the scars on the one you could love There you were carving it over your heart We're moving like animals in the dark "It's only a shadow that's over my skin Free of the family that covered the sin This is the last time that I let him win This is the last time that I let him win This is the last time that I let him win." We're moving like animals in the dark

Eagle Lake Owls Winnipeg, Manitoba

Songs about long winters and endless summers, filtered through a dusty car window. Electric guitars and delicate harmonies clash above orchestral swells. The quiet moments threaten to birth chaos as songs sweep from hushed voices to dissonant noise like a prairie storm. ... more
