The Dark Canuck

This one is for you
And it goes on and on and on
When nothing seems to do
For when the doubtless and the wrong
Ask; "can I help you?"
In that way that says, "I can't"
Or claim we're all the same
Just inconsistent
Or pretend all understanding
Turned out to be pretense
Then pretend the pretense of understanding
How long does it take? Depends

You can cast your doubts
Turn 'em inside-out
Hang 'em upside-down
'Til their art falls out - the short answer's; forty-eight hours
Let your heart all out - the short answer's; forty-eight hours
'Til your art falls out - the short answer's; forty-eight hours
Let your heart all out
Summon up your power

If you need a good connection for drugs
Or a strong tolerance for alcohol
Too little religious education
Some pain threshold
If from the outside
There's no demand for what you do
And inside there's an army waiting
For their marching orders for you
Come sit on my swing-seat
Come sit on my porch
After Ten at night, smoke your cigarettes if you like, of course

You can cast your doubts
Turn 'em inside-out
Hang 'em upside-down
'Til their art falls out - the short answer's; forty-eight hours
Let your heart all out - the short answer's; forty-eight hours
'Til their art falls out - the short answer's; forty-eight hours
Let your heart all out
Summon up all your power

And it does on and on and on

If we ever get home
Let's don't compare
Let's relinquish all our holidays
And Drive-In Premieres

If we ever get home
Gonna have me three children
Apple, Zippo, and Metronome
That's what I'm gonna name them

And get celebrity skin
The illusion of tough
I'm gonna talk about nothing
'Til nothing's enough

If we ever get home
And the subject comes up
This War isn't for children
War is nothing's enough

O' in the clouds of blood at the end of Jaws
In the misted cars honking their applause
At the Drive-In Double Feature
At the heart of dark enough
O' it's Jaws and The Dark Canuck
Should we stay for The Dark Canuck?
Yea! Everyone, hands up!?
Who's for 'The Dark Canuck'?

I think we relinquished enough
And it's still dark enough
And it goes on and on and on
