about

Hatchet Lake Nova Scotia

A broken man paddles across the dark water of Hatchet Lake. He’s hurt, exhausted, and needs a goddam drink after what he’s just endured.

Track Name: Dire Empire
Go and get cold
Go and catch a fire
Go and do anything you desire
In my defense, I was lost
Most of the time

Pirated gold
Trade and conspire
Access everything ‘till you tire
In my defense I was lost
Most of the time

In my dreams, I’m asleep
The animals all congregate
They hunt through sound and voice
Living lust, or true rejoice

I use the greatest minds
The weakest ones I leave behind
At night when I decide
If I live, when you die

Armies of words
Sang like a choir
Steadfast rule of the public newswire
And your offense is that of lies
Most of the time

Sharpen your blade
Hand to the squire
All for the good of your dire empire
And your offense is that of lies
Most of the time

In my dreams, I’m asleep
The animals all congregate
They hunt through sound and voice
Living lust, or true rejoice

I use the greatest minds
The weakest ones I leave behind
At night when I decide
If I live, when you die
Track Name: Space Police
We are the Space Police
The Universal Grease
You can't win you have no choice
We silence the common man
Do everything we can
'Till the world has no voice

Get your hands up if you want to live
I'll go with fire when it's 'bout to give
Track Name: She Shed
This Love you cannot grant renewal
What’s mine is yours but your not mine
No words No pain
Keep takin the whole show
I’ll use construction skills to save me

I like to take things much like you do
Excess in moderation failure
With no thoughts, no words
It’s a secret in reason
To save me from the worlds’ demise.

Maniacal and crazy
A little bit greedy and vile
Hindsight is hazy
All of these things and I

I will build you a she shed baby
Make it tall make it nice and sturdy
I will build you a she shed baby
With a secret place.

I left the part out where I’d waste you
and send you to a fiery grave
with no thoughts. No words
the bombs dropping and burning.
I’m in my steel sub-shed enclave
Track Name: Teleportal
Today I feel strange
I’m sacrilege bound and headed wherter the fire rains
Feels to be man made
A computer screen trainee or a crusade

I’ve found a rabid hole
It’s frothing at the mouth and it wont let me get home
It’s a remote control
Into the eyes of a soul that he didn’t know

You Don’t Know

All these acts of sin
Playing with my mind and I can’t say where I’ve been
But I’ve rigged the firing pin
But it didn’t take fortheres brains on the ceiling

You Don’t Know

Hey. It’s a great way to die, just wait for it. Just wait for it.
