The Things That Can't Be Helped

Listen
Bless Lyrics

God bless the babies that sleep inside of us. 
And god bless the living souls that are strong and hard to trust. 
We owe nothing, despite all we’re told. 
If you can ride that horse, surely it can’t be sold. 

God bless the doors we’ll help each other through. 
Their so tough to open, but even tougher to close. 
And the farther we walk together, the less we come to know. 
Cause there’s always the things, that can’t be helped… 
The Things That Can’t Be Helped.

Gold Lyrics

I know where you get your gold. 
I know where your heart is sold. 
And if I love you love you love you, 
Then I will call you out. 

Cause a trauma loves a drug, like a drug loves an addict, and an addict loves nothing but his habits. 

So if I love you love you love you, 
Then I will call you out.

Darkest Nights Lyrics

got nothing but a hatchet and a bare birch tree
I got a cold cigar feeling lonely
The logstacks full and there’s plenty to burn
I’m just sitting hear wearing this old scowl I’ve earned

Oh the darkest nights, oh the darkest nights
Oh the darkest nights, oh the darkest nights

The fish are sleeping neath the cold dark lake
I’ll swing my arm until the hatchet breaks
Built a fire in my sleep tilt the bottle back
Sweat hitting stone till the coals turn black

Oh the darkest nights, oh the darkest nights
Oh the darkest nights, oh the darkest nights
Oh the darkest nights, oh the darkest nights

Swan Dives Lyrics

I am of you, and you are of me.
We are of the stars, we are of the sea.

I wrap the Pendalton around your sore shoulders.
Waiting for my questions to cross your unclaimed boarders.
And the young swan is headed, strait, South.
Someday little one, you’ll know when to put your foot in your mouth.

Please god, give us good work to do, ohhh.

I am of you, and you are of me.
We are of the stars, we are of the sea.
Maybe this time, swan dives will end in a long SWIM.

Swan Dives Lyrics

Took a train to the Hudson Bay
The locals warned me of the hungry bears
I was young I didn’t realize
I was young I didn’t realize

That the ice was melting, and my heart it was melting
And the nice it was melting, and my heart it was melting

Walked along the tundra, snow geese fly above my eyes
Seals swam next to belugas, and the fox heard my minds cry

The ice is melting and my heart it is melting
Yeah the ice it is melting, and my heart it is melting

Met an old inuit woman she said, kid I’ve got something to tell you
That hunger we all feel we can use that, we can use that hunger to heal

Cause the ice is melting and her heart it was melting
Yeah our ice it is melting and our hearts our hearts are melting

Swan Dives Lyrics

who programmed the robot in you?

Self Talk Lyrics

Stop trying to show the world that you’re something before you are
Shut your mouth put your head down and start to listen
We’ve all got our own reason for the stories we like to tell
But I can’t push mine further cause I’ve got nothing I wish to sell
I find myself in the dignity and the artful moments that pass me by
And I don’t need an audience to know the beauty in thine eye
I can’t love a stage, and I can’t love an act
Cause I find truth in the moments that are never pre-planned
Theres a way life shows us that theres nothing to try to control
So I put my head down, and I start to listen
I love you just the same, in my silence in your name
I love you just the same, but I gotta get out of my own way

Wild Kry Lyrics

So the king bows his head and lets his troubles leave his bed this time
Oh I’ve had a time or two of a failed devotion in my mind
So come little childs better leave your lonely souls for the wild

I saw you through the day break

So the queen bows her head and lets her troubles leave her bed this time
Cause the leader of her heart didn’t need a word to speak of in her mind
So come little childs better leave your lonely souls for the wild

I saw you through the day break

Cause the harder we grasp, the quicker this picture dies.

Theatrix Lyrics

I work alone in the night
In front of only god out of sight
Theres some sort of dignity in that secrecy
Theres some sort of integrity in that secrecy

Cause those theatrix are killing me, I wan’t to love privately
Those theatrix are killing us, raised on a culture of all show and no trust

So I go down to the water and I hold, I hold whats sacred in my hands
Catch a fish jus to release it

See the way I live in the way I take a stand
See the way I love in the way I treat the land

The Things That Can't Be Helped

The Things That Can't Be Helped

The Things That Can’t Be Helped Lyrics

I’m searching for a place to rest

A bear den or an eagles nest

Too much noise near everyone

Shut the door on your socialite fun

 

Cause there are the things, that can’t be helped

Gotta let them die, gotta let them be gone

Oh my my, I finally stand alone

Cause there are the things, that can’t be helped

 

I’m searching for a place to grieve

A bat house or a black spruce tree

Too much noise near everyone

Shut the door on your socialite fun  

 

Cause there are the things, that can’t be helped

Gotta let them die, gotta let them be gone

Oh my my, I finally stand alone

Cause there are the things, that can’t be helped
