End Of Me

[NOT DONE]

The streets of Vancouver are flooded
With the blood of the sleep-walking dead
I dreamed we walked on this river together
His greasy hands pulled us in above our heads

This land's ancient insides are burning
The firey pine beetle cooks her bones
You told me if I burned bright like she does
Come the winter I won't make it home

[refrain]
So you follow me out
Through grey rain and darker drought
You follow me back
Coals are red, soles are black
You said you'd follow me to the end of the earth
But the end of me is bound to come first

Calgary's gold is someone's curse
I've seen the good life get better as the living gets worse
I came to you oil-rich and angry
But the power weighed more than it's worth

So you follow me west
To keep fire off my chest
You follow me east
To console the icy beast
You said you'd follow me to the end of the earth
But the end of me is bound to come first

[bridge]
Lady, I know there's a life that you long for
And I'll win it for you if I can
Folks say there's a good flood that's coming
and I've seen the drownings begun
This river has swept up your man

The fires of St. John never ended
In us punks, in us drunks it still burns
And though Irving has bought up our body
We're not going to sell them our word

So you follow me east
To control the icy beast
You follow me west
To put fire back in my chest
You said you'd follow me to the end of the earth
But the end of me is bound to come first

Oh you follow me out
Through grey rain and darker doubt
You follow me back
Coals are red, feet burn black
You said you'd follow me to the end of the earth
But the end of me is bound to come first

You said you'd carry me, but this river has grown
This river is carrying us home
