lyrics

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

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.
