Odds – Truth Untold

Awaken from your slumber
and get up for the train
You were caught at your station
and waiting for the rain

Well I call and you answer
and I answer you again
So remember the answer
remember the way it ends

The truth untold
will always lie between us
We may never unfold
the way our lives have brought us here

Now send out all your letters
and write it in the sky
For worse and for better
forever you and I

Then surrender all the ammo
and gather all your charms
Cause it’s gonna burn you and it’s gonna blind you
and it’s gonna tear you arm from arm

The truth untold
will always lie between us
We may never unfold
the way our lives have brought us here

Can we get on this together
is it time to pull the wire?
We’ll I’m gonna learn to unwind you
and I’m gonna earn your faith entire

The truth untold
will always lie between us
We may never unfold
The way our lives have brought us here

The Tragically Hip – Titanic Terrarium

Growin’ up in a biosphere
with no respect for bad weather
there’s still roaches and ants in here
so resourceful and clever.
Her great grandfather saw the future
didn’t know nothing bout panic,
he certainly probably thought
that it was unthinkable.
There’s a trace o mint
wafting in from the north
so we don’t fuck with the 401
it’s bigger than us or
larger than we bargained
I guess it’s just not done.
His great grandfather worked for Goodyear
he’d see the blimp on Sundays
wonder what the driver knew
about making rubber tires.
Terrarium, O Terrarium

There’s submarines out there under the ice
avoiding and courting collision
an accident’s sometimes the only way
to worm our way back to bad decisions,
My great grandfather was a welder
he helped to build the Titanic
he didn’t certainly think
that is was unsinkable.
Building up to the larger point
with an arrogance not rare or pretty
we don’t declare the war on idleness
when outside it’s cold and shitty.
We stay inside and try to conjure the fathers of
the injured and faking
if there’s glory in miracles
it’s that they’re reversible
