about

the Lambta Da's regina, Saskatchewan

The music's expression is paradoxically less solar and extraverted than the character of the seasons would lead us to believe. More than strength or richness there is an intensity, a sensation replete with freshness and firmness, which is remarkable. This deep and confident presence that persists over time becomes the memory of the music, possibly for always. ... more

Track Name: BURY ME IN THE PRAIRIE
let's find a quiet ending
a promise with no amending
let's find a place to bury eachother in the prairie
a prayer bowing knee and hand
commit truly understand
let's find a place to bury eachother in the prairie, love
...
steady hands and true
whisper words i do
first it's me then you
...
let's find our cemetery
tonight as we are ready
let's find a place to bury eachother in the prairie
hold hands and leave our footprints
as childlike as our first kiss
let's find a place to bury eachother in the prairie, love
...
steady hands and true
whisper words i do
first it's me then you
...
my prairie love
...
Track Name: I COULD HURT SOMEONE
i never knew how i could hurt someone until i hurt someone
i never knew how i could hurt someone until i hurt someone
now it's going round round round it's all coming back around
now it's going round round round it's all coming back around
...
eyes squint, in a pinch, in a jam
i'm a curse, maybe worse, son of sam
...
without thought, i do what i want, later pay
my words and such, are a crutch, to dig my own grave
in a squeeze, do you believe, i would try
to heed your advice, and be a nice, thoughtful guy
...
the bar lights are all on
and there's nobody here, nobody here
...
in a squeeze, do you believe, i would try
to heed your advice, and be a nice, thoughtful guy
or would i fail, or tell a tall tale, or just disappear
the chances are high, on the latter that i, can see the exit sign clear
...
because the bar lights are on
because the bar lights are on
because the bar lights are on
and there's nobody here, nobody here
...
Track Name: LAST GREAT HEIST
i wanna be your only lover
a lovely thought so you'll think of no other
i'm planning one last great heist
i'm going to steal your heart tonight
...
like days on end that we spend with eachother
our time escapes when we're under the covers
when night time comes and i say where is my only
you say i'm here i'm here i'm here so hold me
...
and i will love you everyday
your the one that i'll spend my days with
and i will love you everyday
your the one
...
quiet nights that we spend together
is when i know no one could treat me better
i'm planning one last great heist
i'm going to steal your heart tonight
...
Track Name: LOVE IS A BITCH
oh my sweetheart, dear old friend
i've written letters, but lost the nerve to send
have you got patience, have you got time
have you got bored flirting with the same old lines
...
all i am saying is give me a chance
though it's been said before with more political romance
...
oh my goodness, what a shame
do you love her, my old flame
my old someone, your new girl
love is a bitch though don't you say those things to her
...
cause you don't call me anymore
and you're the one i'm looking forward
to hanging out with
...
Track Name: MILESTONES
i am in a peculiar place
are my worries real or misplaced
should i relax wait and see
ignorance is bliss parenting
is my baby alright
...
laziness comes easily
but milestones are haunting me
if their not met what does that mean
when your so close it's hard to see
is my baby alright
...
Track Name: OCEANS & SEAS & WW
webbed feet, ponytail, little plants, trading posts
gasoline, scared kids, sails and nets, cobbled boats
...
i saw a full moon under the radar
i swam an ocean slightly under the breeze
the forecast called for storms and said later
that we'd be swimming in the oceans and seas
...
harpoon, rare dirt, hidden gills, tight pants
dirty drinks, shaved head, quick thief, secret map
...
an over budget criticized mess
took quite a lick and a beating
it must have been quite defeating
to be honest i thought it was the best
cosner movie i had seen
when i was twelve or thirteen
aside from field of dreams
reviewers were a bit harsh it seemed
like there wasn't a single good scene
maybe some jealousy caused them to be mean
he had had quite a successful string
of characters on the silver screen
...
Track Name: SICK & TIRED OF WORRYING
well i've got bills to pay
so when i'm on life support
they don't cut the power or pull the cord
well i got life insurance
so if i go when i'm young
i can't afford to put money aside
i will retire when i am 101
...
i'm sick and tired of worrying
i'm sick and tired of worrying
it'll get worse and worse and worse and worse
until my heart explodes
it'll get worse and worse and worse and worse
until my heart explodes
...
teenagers are dumb
i'm trying to teach my kids
while they are still young
to avoid teenage idiots
i do trust my wife
but the older i am
the more lazy and out of shape i get
will she replace me with a younger man
...
i'm sick and tired of worrying
i'm sick and tired of worrying
it'll get worse and worse and worse and worse
until my heart explodes
it'll get worse and worse and worse and worse
until my heart explodes
...
Track Name: TWENTY TWENTY HALIFAX
i walked right by you into our house
slammed the door and for four days i let my temper out
you did some things that i would care not to repeat
i said we need professional help desperately
...
twenty twenty halifax
holding hands as we were asked
if we were both sorry
truly completely or hardly
...
you walked right by me into our house
slammed the door and for four days you let your temper out
i did some things that you would care not to repeat
you said we need professional help desperately
...
Track Name: WHAT DO NEW LOVERS (have to) PRAY FOR
what are we fighting for
i don't know no more
it's turned into a chore
i could do without it
i don't even care
am i alone there
...
what do new lovers have
to pray for but i have
on problems we've had
i could do without it
i don't even care
am i alone there
Track Name: WINDOW DRESSINGS
true love is being worried nearly all of the time
true love is trading weekends and staying out all night
you could cut me, proceed to suck me, empty dry as a bone
there'd be appreciation for the odd sensation
of dying and not being alone
...
window dressings are such a must
blinds, drapes, curtains and such
are you loveless or are you shy
are you as worried as i
...
i guess it was love, i guess it was hate
i guess it was full metal jacket
that caused to rust, deform, rearrange
and cause quite a bit of a racket
the neighbors would scream and convalesce
and plan scheme's in the alley
so rude and obscene as i undress
in the window as the widows look at me
...
dumb luck and love struck nearly all of the time
true love is being fucked and staying out all night
is it late or early does my neighbor worry
if i can see in her home
or is she transfixed
with the thought that somehow she can fix
dying and not being alone
...
