Track Name: Amaruq
Down from the mountain
Came the wolf
And he was hidden in your eyes
Oh he’s hidden in your eyes
Yeah he’s hidden in your eyes.
He howls and my heart howls back
A wild misty smile
A smile through disguise
That my blood flow is rising
My blood flow is rising
Blood flow is rising

With every wind blown hair I will notice
With every muscle shift I will notice
Please lie so still, I won’t notice
I won’t notice
I won’t know
Track Name: Gerry
Well, my cousin Gerry was shot by a cop
Now he’s in the cold room the motherless fuck
He did have a mother, the last name of Lord
Passed on from a bastard in the German war
But Gerry was wiser than the whole damn force
Now this small town’s only in for worse
When the cops are lying about my family
Well, no one knew the truth better than Gerry

Now this small town is only in for worse
Now this small town is only in for worse

Warrior down in Saskatchewan town
Warrior down in Saskatchewan town
Warrior down in Saskatchewan town
Warrior down in Saskatchewan town

Warrior down in Saskatchewan town
Warrior down in Saskatchewan town
Warrior down in Saskatchewan town
My cousin Gerry was shot by a cop
Track Name: Long Braided Hair
Someone feed the children please
When everything feels out of touch

For I can see in my handwriting
That I’m losing hope to go on
I can’t believe in society
When nothing is filled with love
Nothing is filled with love

And for the little girl with long braided hair
There’s warriors out there for sure
For the little girl with long braided hair
There’s warriors out there for sure
For the little girl with long braided hair
There’s warriors out there for sure
For the little girl with long braided hair
There’s warriors out there for sure
For the little girls with long braided hair
There’s warriors out there for sure

And as the voice that calls my name
Gets fainter and fainter each day
Traditional lands it’s your history
The country you call yours is a shame

So someone feed the children please
Together move on, rejoice
Track Name: 2CB
What songs do I need to know
To fill a heart so cold
And how did these notes come to know
Secrets, words left untold

I don’t know my love
I’m all confused as fuck
Marijuana
Fast for several days
Then songs drift in on waves
Get me water
Heron, Loon and moss
The clouds might be on drugs
There’s a turtle
Track Name: ODA MAN
The love Ode’min
Is not gone away
Like the cat that you took
On Family Day
So called healers
Chopping off
The circles head
The traditional life
Hasn’t found me yet
Like you do

WHITE TRUTH

Debwe’win is a teaching
I can’t forget
While I’m lying with you
In your Arctic bed
So called healing from feeling
These passed regrets
The traditional life
Hasn’t found me yet
Like you do

WHITE TRUTH
Track Name: Homemade Candles
I’m sorry about all the fires
When I was worried about your health
When I was seeing those colours
And you opened up on yourself
You told me of the hotel
While I stared at books on a shelf
There is something about homemade candles
And the truth that they shall spout

The truth is out in the water
And we’re safely in the house
His canoe was in the distance
Except we are just on a couch
With close friends all around us
We shouldn’t worry about ourselves
There is something about homemade candles
And the truth the flame shall spout

And the wick is in the water
Was he all by himself
Venture out into the backyard
Light fires ourselves
With the wiigwaas all around us
Well, we could be ourselves
Or go inside, put on a record
Drift into the couch
