lyrics

I wanna lay down under the snow
I wanna hold you
I wanna step through the mouth of a building
so terrible and small that I will never come out
I wanna stay out under the darkness until it fails me
I wanna let the temperature delay me
until I pull you off the easel that I painted you on
to talk to you
to shout at you

I wanna talk to you

Step into traffic
Learn to float above it
Into the ether, up above the pavement
where if its attention you want
then I can give it to you
If you find that your neighborhood’s betrayed you
and when your friends fall apart, they try to blame you
and you who’s God it is you pray to
then get out

Everything you want to know
will gently tear as it unfolds
the folds of the map are too damp to hold

The things you thought you never knew
fade into focus in front of you
in full colour, as good as memories
you can be made new

I wanna lay down under the snow
I wanna hold you
I wanna step through the mouth of a building
so terrible and small that I will never come out
I wanna stay out under the darkness til it fails me
I wanna let the temperature delay me
until I pull you off the easel that I painted you on
to talk to you
to shout at you

I wanna talk to you

about

The Utilities Lethbridge, Alberta

Their work is genuine. They have been making music together for the better part of a decade with sounds drawing from folk and Can-rock. Their take on guitar-heavy indie is both familiar and forward-thinking.
