about

7 songs inspired by my time spent in Kitimat, BC in July of 2014. The LP acts as the soundtrack to a documentary I filmed pushing for the conservation of the Kitimat area and our coastline. The film is called "One Big Coast" and was premiered in January of 2015. I am taking my film and music on the road this spring and summer.

Track Name: What About Them
Maybe things’ll end at the bottom of the sea
Maybe things’ll end at the bottom of the sea
At the bottom of the sea, the bottom of the sea

Maybe things’ll start once again with a tree
Then some time will go by, might look something like you and me
It starts with a tree then it ends with you and me

I know it's all too much
I know it's all too much

Maybe things are just exactly as they seem
A boardroom full of business men, with more money than they’ll ever need

But that’s the funny thing about life, things ain't always what they seem
Like the blowing of the wind, the flowing of a stream
It starts with a tree then it ends with you and me

What about them, those to come, those who are taking, what we’ve begun

I know it’s all too much
Track Name: I Am Not Lost
I will float with the clouds up to heaven
I will blow with the wind through the trees
I will sing with the birds like its nothing
I will flow with the river to the sea

I will hold on, I am not lost, I am not lost
I will hold on, I am not lost, I am not lost

I will fight for this coastline forever
I would give up both my eyes to save the trees
I will break both legs of all the liars
Who can see the change a’ coming and don’t believe

I will hold on, I am not lost, I am not lost
I will hold on, I am not lost, I am not lost

I will hold on, I am not lost, I am not lost
I will hold on, I am not lost, I am not lost

I will fight for this coastline forever
I would give up both my eyes to save the trees
I will break both legs of all the liars
Who can see the change a’ coming and don’t believe

I will hold on, I am not lost, I am not lost
I will hold on, I am not lost, I am not lost
Track Name: Welcome to the Garden
Welcome to the garden, treat it like your own, it’s all our homes

Take a look at the ocean , where there’s an island composed
Of all the crap we’ve thrown away always making sure to say
That it don’t matter as long no body knows

Take a look at the world now, tell me what you see
Ain’t it time we come together, quit fucking with the weather
Take things back to the way they outta be

Welcome to the garden, treat it like your own, it’s all our homes

It’s all the daffodils, daisies, buttercups and junipers
Bumblebees, butterfleas, grizzley bears and douglas firs
It’s all that I know, all that I see, all that I breathe
And its damn worth fighting for if you know what I mean

It’s all the daffodils, daisies, buttercups and junipers
Bumblebees, butterfleas, grizzley bears and douglas firs
It’s all that I know, all that I see, all that I breathe
And its damn worth fighting for if you know what I mean

So get your head up, hands up hold em up high
You gotta say it like you mean it from the ground up to the sky
This is all we have man, it’s all that we know
But if nothing else changes then away it’ll go

So get your head up, hands up hold em up high
You gotta say it like you mean it from the ground up to the sky
This is all we have man, it’s all that we know
But if nothing else changes then away it’ll go

Welcome to the garden, treat it like your own, it’s all our homes

It’s all the daffodils, daisies, buttercups and junipers
Bumblebees, butterfleas, grizzley bears and douglas firs
It’s all that I know, all that I see, all that I breathe
And its damn worth fighting for if you know what I mean
Track Name: All That Grows
Let em love, let em live
Let em say what they need to say

Let em hold up their hands
Let em say what they need to say

You are young, you can live
You can say what you need to say

You can hold up your hands
You can say what you need to say

I am young I will live
I will say what I need to say

I will hold up my hands
I will say what I need to say

Cause I need the earth the grass the leaves the rocks the trees and everything in between
I need the you, the he, the she, to come in as one, create the we
I need to see that you believe in all that grows and lives and dies and breaths
If the end is near and the sun does blow, jump off the earth into the unknown

Still it’s the same wherever I go, killing each other cause they claim to know
If the end is near and the sun does blow, jump off the earth into the unknown

(woop)
Track Name: Kangarooz
I’ve got love but it ain’t for a girl
its for the land and the sea and the whole wide world
and I’m going down, down, down

I’ve got love but it ain’t for you
Its for the bears and the bugs and the kangarooz
And they’re going down, down, down

Make sure that your love is in the rightest of places
Cause the things that we’re doing, they’re melting the glaciers
And they’re coming down, down, down

The tides are a’turning there are changes at hand
They’re too slow notice, to big to understand
But they’re going down, down, down

If we all come together, try our very best
The sun can power the world, the wind can do the rest
And then I’ll put it down, down, down

So lift me up

I’m going down
Track Name: 51st and Yew
I'm gonna sit on my parents couch, eat all my parents food
Ah what a wonderful life I have up on 51st and Yew

I might walk down to the park, head on down to the river too
Ah what a wonderful life I have up on 51st and Yew

On Fridays I wake up, I walk around in my birthday suit
What can I say what a beautiful day up on 51st and Yew

I might walk to my buddy Puff's, head on down to Lemons too
Go with J and get stoned in the park all alone up on 51st and Yew

My dog might bark a lot, she is really quite nice it's true
Just stay out of her way and you'll be ok up on 51st and Yew

My mom might bark a lot, she is really quite nice it's true
Just stay out of her way and you'll be ok up on 51st and Yew

I'm gonna sit on my parents couch, eat all my parents food
Ah what a wonderful life I have up on 51st and Yew
Track Name: Mess We've Made
I’ve got eyes that can see, hands that can hold
Arms that can heal, I do what I’m told
And when the morning brings another glorious day
I sit here and I just wait

I’m staring down at the grass in my toes
Sticks and the mud and the rain and the snow
And the green and the blue are lessened to grey
And there it goes, the though fades

Can you see the mess we’ve made?
Can you see what needs to change?
Can you see the mess we’ve made?
Can you see what needs to change?

We’ve got hands on guns, hands on eachother
Instead of taking one away we’ll just make another
When the day does come that you see what you did
Can you still say that it just is?

When the truth does walk you down the street
Only gives you what you have, only shows you what you’ve seen
Doesn’t matter who you were its who you’re choosing to be
Doesn’t matter what you said but that you’re choosing to see

Can you see the mess we’ve made?
Can you see what needs to change?
Can you see the mess we’ve made?
Can you see what needs to change?

You’re missing it all
