fridgie This band is really great, but they are ~*SPECTACULAR*~ to see LIVE. Every show I've seen feels like they're headliners playing to a sold our stadium; not kidding. I am so giddy about the new album!!

Track Name: North American Dream
You can take a day or two but no more than that we’ve got a real strict schedule to meet. Don’t you want to keep the lights on in that house? Don’t you want to keep shoes on your kid’s feet? See they don’t care if you’re sick, they don’t care if you’re ill. They need you to do things nobody else will cause if the lights go out that American dream moves on. Are you tired of living, two weeks at a time? Working paycheque to paycheque, fighting just to stay alive. As it goes on, you’re left behind to wonder what life could have been like if you were born at a different time, so don’t let it die. Can we talk about timing? Or should we talk about love? Maybe we should just walk away & pretend it ain’t in our blood. ‘Cause either you’re something or you’re nothing. You’re broken, or you’re loving. Well if loving means nothing being broken meant something to me. Being broken meant something to me. Are you tired of living, two weeks at a time? Working paycheque to paycheque, fighting just to stay alive. As it goes on, you’re left behind to wonder what life could have been like if you were born at a different time, so don’t let it die. ‘Cause either you’re something, or you’re nothing. You’re broken, or you’ve loving. Either you’re something, or you’re nothing. You’re broken, you’re broken. Are you tired of living, two weeks at a time? Fuckin’ paycheque to paycheque, fighting just to stay alive. As it goes on, you’re left behind to wonder what life could have been like if you were born at a different time, so don’t let it die. Don’t let it die.
Track Name: I've Got You
He was a helpless victim, the kind we know now & I’m sorry that you lost him but I swear we’re going to work this out. Oh I cannot lose you, I can’t go through this again. Oh I cannot lose you, I can’t go through this again. Don’t give it up just yet, you might be emotionally spent but I’ve got you, well I’ve got you & if there’s one thing you shouldn’t forget that baby it’s not fair to think it’s yours to regret ‘cause I’ve got you, well I’ve got you. You’ve come along way since then but it still hurts sometimes, that old guilt still crawls in your head right in the middle of the night. I never want you to feel that broken again but it’s the hard truth, never an “if”, only “when”. & I remember everything that you said the day you found out. Oh I cannot lose you, I can’t go through this again. Oh I cannot lose you, I can’t go through this again. Don’t give it up just yet, you might be emotionally spent but I’ve got you, well I’ve got you & if there’s one thing you shouldn’t forget that baby it’s not fair to think it’s yours to regret ‘cause I’ve got you, I’ve always got you. Oh I cannot lose you, I can’t go through this again. Oh I cannot lose you, I can’t go through this again. Don’t give it up just yet, you might be emotionally spent but I’ve got you, I’ve always had you.
Track Name: Separate Ways
Why is it over? Maybe I’ll tell you when you’re older. She said something ‘bout a river & how I’m drowning in it sober, sober. Well if I could go back again, I’d stop the river from closing in on baby on you, won’t understand a word I say but Abigail it’s true, I know it feels like a rainy day for these separate ways. Why is it over? I guess she never found closure, had seven years & you together & I wish we’d have made this work to save you that hurt but the mistakes I made came in like a flood & the rain washed away all the things I loved If only I could do it right, do it right by you, won’t understand a word I say but Abigail it’s true, I know it feels like a rainy day for these separate ways. Well we still love you, it’s nothing you did or could ever do. Your mom & I got things to sort through but ill be seeing you; I’ll be seeing you. Well, you won’t understand a word I say but Abigail it’s true, I know it feels like a rainy day for these separate ways. You, you won’t understand, you wont understand a word & it’s true, I know it feels like a rainy day for these separate ways.
Track Name: Debts
I lost my job today at the rail yard. Hours were cut, so I was cut too. First in, last out. Last call & self-doubt. If only there were more that I could do. See I’ve flipped through the newspaper classifieds but every listing says, “Diploma required”. See I failed, I tried. I got drunk to pass time; perhaps a sober state of mind would follow through. & so what if I’m scared of dying alone? I always thought I’d grow up to get my daddy’s job but they cut him loose when a machine took it on. As I say, as I do one drink, then a few. I watched him slip away back then & that’s just what I lived up too. These debts grow taller than me & so what if I’m scared of dying alone in an unmarked grave? & honestly I swear that I’ll never know if I can pay back the debts that I owe. First in, last out; it’s what this life’s all about. Who you are, who you know, what you’ve done, how you grow. & so what if I’m scared of dying alone in an unmarked grave? & honestly I swear that I’ll never know, at least I tried to pay back the debts that I owe.
Track Name: Strike Sound
Hey Mac we’ve been here before but I can’t imagine when. Frontlines & picket signs but the cheques aren’t coming in & you just had that kid back on August 10. & 35 bucks a day it’ll barely pay the rent. & we’ll look out for each other & keep our ears to the ground ‘cause we’ll be listening to that old strike sound. Someone crossed the line today, I guess they don’t understand the word “solidarity” or better days for a fellow man, well it takes time & broken locks we’ll make ‘em sweat till we’re better off & trust me Mac, everything in the world’s gonna be okay ‘cause revolution sparks the change. We’ll look out for each other & keep our ears to the ground ‘cause we’ll be listening to that old strike sound. We’ll be hearing that old strike sound. Brothers in arms, sisters at hand we’ll make our way to the Promised Land, they can’t stop us from reaching it. & We’ll look out for each other & keep our ears to the ground ‘cause we’ll be listening to that old strike sound. & We’ll look out for each other & keep our ears to the ground ‘cause we’ll be listening to that old strike sound, we’ll be hearing that old strike sound, trust me they’ll hear that old strike sound, that old strike sound.
Track Name: Lonely Bones
If I asked you, would you tell me that this was worth it? Being lost here in a fragile state of mind. ‘Cause I’m the fool because I thought that I deserved it, well I got a feeling in these lonely bones of mine. I’m tired & broke in the same clothes from last night & just because I’m in a brand new city, that don’t make it all right. I’ve spent two weeks in these jeans & white tee shirts & the pain in my neck just gets worse & worse but those are lessons you learn, lessons that you learn on your own. If I asked you, would you tell me that this was worth it? Being lost here in a fragile state of mind. ‘Cause I’m the fool because I thought that I deserved it, well I got a feeling in these lonely bones of mine. It’s just another night out but free won’t last forever. You pay for it every morning in the stormiest of weather. I know it’s hard to say no to those free things & the wonders of the world that their love brings but those are lessons you learn for reasons that you already know. If I asked you, would you tell me that this was worth it? Being lost here in a fragile state of mind. ‘Cause I’m the fool because I thought that I deserved it, well I got a feeling in these lonely bones of mine. If I asked you, would you tell me it wasn’t worth it? Being lost here in a fragile state of mind. ‘Cause I’m the fool because I never really earned it, Well I got a feeling in these lonely bones of mine. Oh god I’ve been dealing with these lonely bones of mine.
Track Name: Eleanor
Eleanor, I got some bad news today. The doctor told me there was a whole lot of hurt coming along the way. Well it’ll get my liver; it’ll get my lungs, it’ll crush that life we were dreaming of. Eleanor, I got some bad news today. Do you remember when we were young in ’68? See you were a few years older than me so I was nervous on our date. But it was the way you’d laugh that made me feel like this strange, odd thing, it could be real. Do you remember when we were young in ’68? Do you remember when we were young in ’68? I guess I always hoped I’d have more time. All the things we could have seen & done if I only were alive. But I bet the heartache & the medical bills will get me before the cancer will. I guess I always hope I’d have more time. I guess I always hoped I’d have more time. Eleanor I’ve got some bad news today. Just let them grief rights in so you can lower my body in that grave. Well please don’t let your life end with me; you’ll make a great mom one day you’ll see. Eleanor, I got some bad news today. Please don’t forget when we were young in ’68.
Track Name: When Her & I Began
I keep a picture in my wallet of a love I used to know, we spent every dollar we had on every credit card we owed & maybe that’s what did us in or the time our house foreclosed, we forgot the vows we said as kids in our parents wedding clothes. It never used to be this way; we’d dance from night till day. We drove past graveyards & I looked at her & said, “we ain’t going out like that you know? Our kids won’t come from a broken home”, & I remember she smiled & took my hand, back when her & I began. We spent months on different schedules, she worked days & I worked nights. We’d come home to civil wars that were only stupid fights. So we just kept digging our own graves, so I signed those papers & I hid. I can’t forget the day the judge said I wasn’t fit to take the kids. I wasn’t fit to take the kids, I wasn’t fit to take the kids. It never used to be this way; we’d dance from night till day. We drove past graveyards & I looked at her & said, “we ain’t going out like that you know? Our kids won’t come from a broken home”, & I remember she smiled & took my hand, back when her & I began. It never used to be this way; we’d dance from night till day. We drove past graveyards & I looked at her & said, “we ain’t going out like that you know? Our kids won’t come from a broken home”, & I remember she smiled & took my hand, back when her & I began. When her & I began.
