"Canadian Song" as written by and Matthew Morris Pond....
turn home from bars and weaving closets full
of stuttered turns when pedals redden roads
we'd pass through farms, the orchards are aligned
it looks too slow as we lay against the floor

the green fury becomes a monument
slips off the road and new years become new lines
we didn't see the lights against the sky
we didn't see we were too far up the road

it's how canadians must feel
everything they see is real
my palms were made to match my eyes
it's how canadians watch days
in a million different ways
and i am for the northern side

watch the signs turn into lines

    General Commentmy favorite parts are the "we'd pass through farms, the orchards are aligned" because I can just see that in my mind. How when you pass rows and rows of trees you can see down them for a split second with the sun glimmering through the young branches. beautiful.

    also the "slips off the road and new years become new lines, we didn't see the lights against the sky, we didn't see we were too far up the road" This speaks to me as to how time passes. How funny and how slight sad it is how we lose track of time so easily/fast. It also speaks to me about how opportunities are missed. There's something about missing something I could have seen that just eats away at me. That's how I feel about the "lights against the sky" part.

    Great catchy sound!
