"National Hum" as written by and Steven Lambke Doug Macgregor....
Your mayor is raising fences to keep bodies off the Don Valley Parkway
Send your praises to the mechanics of the state
Singing sweetly from the mess into the valley of the damned

More and more neglected hands
Judgment ripe, they're starting bands, working on a new solution
Youth is not absolution

They say 'I hate that sound
When the porcine jamboree hits my town
I've got a few words for the graceless herd
The state ain't my shepherd

More and more neglected hands
Judgment ripe, they're starting bands, working on a new solution
Youth is not absolution

Ole! To the kids
The state ain't my shepherd

More and more neglected hands
Judgment ripe, they're starting bands, Working on a new solution
Youth is not absolution

    General Comment"Your mayor is raising fences" is a reference to the Bloor Street Viaduct in Toronto, which was a popular spot for suicides until the City put up a barrier to stop people from jumping off.

    I think this song is about taking charge of your life, even if just to throw yourself off a bridge.
