"Leash" as written by and Michael David Mccready Dave Abbruzzese....
Had one of those days when you want to try heroin,
Drunk driving, some form of soft suicide.
Sitting in silence and staring at ceilings or peeling the paint off of things to confide.
Teach me to wiggle my ears like that,

Show me the scar that you got when you fell off your bike.
Ask me the questions you never want answers to.
We can re-write them however we like.
Stop the hardwood floor's lopsided grin.

Leave the dirt and dead flowers in a brown coffee.
Let your hand melt a hole in the frost.
Peer out under a sky that looks just like a shirt I lost.
Maybe someday the lies we've led around will crawl under our beds and sleep off the years.

    General Commentit's so sad some of the best lyricism in music gets so little recognition while bands like new found glory get hundreds of comments. this song cast a spell on me, i can't get it out of my head.

    General CommentTo me this is the quintessential Weakerthans song. It has that kind of depressed yet optimistic feeling that captivates me so much. This is not the kind of brain dead and meaningless teenage “angst” gushing out of top 10 bands like linkin park. It is the kind of feeling that comes from an intellectual contemplation of the meaning of life. The Weakerthans aren’t pandering to pimple faced 14 yearolds who are want to piss off their parents, their speaking to twenty-something intellectuals and contemplative types who are stuck in a rut in small town America (or Canada).
