Lyrics:

1). If This Tour Doesn’t Kill You, I Will 

If this tour doesn’t kill you, then I will
I hate your guts and it makes me ill
Seeing your face every morning
One more month, and twenty-two days
If this tour doesn’t kill you, I may
I’m counting down the miles till we leave the state
I’m counting down the minutes till I can erase
Every memory of you

For a second, let’s be honest
Nothing will clean your filthy conscience
Everything ya do makes me wanna vomit
And if this tour doesn’t kill you, buddy, I’m on it

Why can’t we just get along?
Why can’t we just get along?
Why can’t we just get along?
Why can’t we just get along?
Ya think you’re so original
(Why can’t we just get along?)
I can’t wait for your funeral
(Why can’t we just get along?)
Don’t wish you were dead, wish you’d never been born at all
(Why can’t everybody just chill?)
I’m trying not to let you get in my head,
But every word, every goddamned syllable that ya say
Makes me wanna gouge out my eyes with a power drill
If this tour doesn’t kill you
If this tour doesn’t kill you
If this tour doesn’t kill you, then I will

2). DVP 

Your sister thinks that I’m a freak
She’s been ignoring my calls
We haven’t spoken in a week
I get so drunk that I can’t speak
Yeah, nothing’s workin’ and our future’s lookin bleak
And I say woooh woooh woooh woooh
Three beers and I’m so messed up
Get drunk and I can’t shut up
(woooh woo woooh woooh)
She says that I drink too much
I fucked up and she hates my guts
She says I need to grow up

I’m driving fast to get away
Doing 180 on the Don Valley Parkway
Yeah, I’d be better off dead
I don’t give a shit
I just don’t wanna die and I don’t wanna live
I said woooh woo woooh woooh
Three beers and I’m so messed up
Get drunk and I can’t shut up
(woooh woo woooh woooh)
She says that I drink too much
I fucked up and she hates my guts
She says I need to grow up

I drink till I’m staring at the ceiling
I’ll be just fine cuz I’m numb and losing feeling
I can’t tell lies anymore
(woooh woo woooh woooh)
Three beers and I’m so messed up
Get drunk and I can’t shut up
(woooh woo woooh woooh)
She says I drink too much
I fucked up and she hates my guts
(woooh woo woooh woooh)
I just don’t know what to do
I’m still fucked up over you
(woooh woo woooh woooh)
She says I drink too much
Hawaiian red fruit punch
She says I need to grow up

3). Doubts 

I’ll never get you out of my mind
It keeps me awake and it keeps me alive
Now that you’ve finally figured me out
I can go home and rest easier now
So what’s left to lose

Now that I’ve got nothing you’re having your doubts
Pack all of your bags and move them all out
Now that I’ve got nothing you’re having doubts
What am I supposed to do now

I haven’t felt quite like myself for months on end
I spend more nights on the floor than in my own bed
And I never see my family or my friends anymore
And I write more apologies than metaphors
So what’s left to lose
What am I what am I supposed to do now
What’s left to lose

Now that I’ve got nothing you’re having your doubts
Pack all of your bags and move them all out
Now that I’ve got nothing you’re having doubts
What am I supposed to do now

What’s left to lose
What am I supposed to do without you
What’s left to lose
What am I supposed to do without you

Now that I’ve got nothing you’re having your doubts
Pack all of your bags and move them all out
Now that I’ve got nothing you’re having doubts
What am I supposed to do now
(Now that I’ve got nothing)
What am I supposed to do
(Now that I’ve got nothing)
Without you
(Now that I’ve got nothing)
What’s left to lose What am I supposed to do
What am I supposed to do now

4). Sleep in the Heat

I was feeling a little bizarre
The day that I buried my family car
In the scrapmetal wrecking yard

And I’ve said so many goodbyes
In the 25 years that I’ve been alive
And I don’t know why this one was so hard

And every time when I go back to my apartment
All I wanna do is get stoned
And I’m sick and tired of blacking out on my carpet
And waking up all on my own
SO I BROUGHT YOU HOME

You started falling apart
6 months after you moved in
And I shoulda known from the start
That things would be different

It’s not something that I can fix
If I could do anything YOU KNOW I WOULD
If this fucking vacation would come to an end
Maybe then you’d be normal again

Last week when I went back to my apartment
You were lookin’ so stoned
The day after Christmas you acted so different
You just WANTED TO BE ON YOUR OWN
So I bought you medicine, went to the vet and
Cashed all of my savings and loans
But it was too late. You were letting go…

Woah oh oh (x11)

And nothing I say will make it ok
You just SLEEP IN THE HEAT AND REPEAT
You’re wasting away. And nothing I do is gonna save you
I’m trying my best but you can’t even
Look at me or talk to me or tell me what’s happening to you

Yesterday I went back to my apartment
To see how you’ve been holding up
You hadn’t been eating, I thought you were sleeping, but…
YOU’RE NOT WAKING UP
I want you to know thay I’d spend every bit of my
Pitiful savings and loans just to see you again

But I know I won’t

5). The Coast

Canadian Cold, Canadian Cheer
I couldn’t spend another winter up here
In this desolate fishing town
Counting the months as they wear me down

Watch over your flock
The cracks in the ice will swallow them up
The lake needs to eat just like all living things
And it’s hungriest in the spring

Now you know
What’s eating me
Taking hold
It was dragging me down
It was dragging me down

The town is always on alert
In the spring they patrol the coast
Fearing the worst
And no one can seem to accept the fact
The lake gives us life and she takes it back

Now you know
What’s eating me
Taking hold
It was dragging me
Down in the valley
Where they found the body
It was growing cold

Now you know
What’s eating me
Taking hold
It was dragging me down
It was dragging me down

Now you know
Now you know
Now you know
What’s eating me In the dawn another girl had gone missing
Last anyone heard she’d gone out to go fishing
The cracks in the lake make a mighty fine grave in the summer thaw
6). Old Wounds
 I caught your eye on the back of the bus like you wanted
You wanna know why I don’t come around anymore?
Well, it’s so fucking obvious
I can’t stand you hanging round lately
I can’t stand you trying to save me
It’s so fucking frustrating
I’m bored of the games and bored of the chase
That’s the reason I left in the first place You keep trying to rip open old wounds
It’s so embarrassing, don’t you know I’m over you?Now you wanna know where I’ve been lately
You wanna know if I’m still a prick?
Well, I am and you’re not gonna change me
So you got another guy going with you
You say you like him, but he’s got a bad attitude
Well, maybe he’s perfect for you
And maybe he deserves less trouble than you gave him
Or maybe he deserves his face in the pavementYou keep trying to rip open old wounds
It’s so embarrassing, don’t you know I’m over you?And I’m trying to get it straight
Why the fuck I came back in the first place

You know I’ve never been good at anything
Except for fucking up and ruining everything
And I’m sick of it, it’s so fucking frustrating
You keep trying to rip open old wounds, it’s so embarrassing
Don’t you know I’m over you?

7). My Life Is Over and I Couldn’t Be Happier
I don’t even know why you’re so pissed
You said I’m such a piece of shit
That wasn’t subtle at all
Maybe I deserve more credit than you gave me
Say I’ll never learn and it’s never gonna phase me
It doesn’t phase me at all If I came home right now
What would I find out?I’m at the end of my tether
You’re under my skin and I’m letting it fester
Yeah, I’ve had enough
Stumble out and I’m headed for the van
I can’t drive man, I can barely stand
Forget getting it upI bet you faked it all along
And I bet you never missed me at all
I’m still waiting, I’m not moving onIf I came home right now
What would I find out?

You won’t believe me
You won’t believe me
You won’t believe me
You won’t believe me
You won’t believe me
You won’t believe me

8). Can’t Win
I’ve been blessed with shit luck
There are some things that’ll never change
I get strung out and fed up with the strain
Get a little more nervous everyday I just wanna be something
Never thought I’d be nothing at all And it feels like I can’t win
I’m growing up and I’m giving in
And it’s starting to hurt
And it feels like I can’t win
I couldn’t wait to be alone again
And I’m getting worseSay I never try, but you know I do
I couldn’t live with my 9 to 5
And I’ll regret what I did to you my whole life
No matter what I do
I can never get anything rightI just wanna be something
Never thought I’d be nothing at all

And it feels like I can’t win
I’m growing up and I’m giving in
And it’s starting to hurt
And it feels like I can’t win
I couldn’t wait to be alone again
And I’m getting worse

I might die of this boredom
If you don’t kill me first
Chalk it up to apathy
I had every chance
I had every opportunity
That I could want
And I ruined them all
I had every chance
Never thought I’d be
Nothing at all

And it feels like I can’t win
I’m growing up and I’m giving in
And it’s starting to hurt
And it feels like I can’t win
I couldn’t wait to be alone again
And I’m getting worse

I might die of this boredom
If you don’t kill me first

9). Familiar Patterns
This business ain’t for the faint of heart
I fell for the bullshit
Then I started falling apart
And by the end of the summer
I let ’em get the best of me
What a god damn bummer
What a waste of my energy So I spent a long time down in the basement
Instead of rolling with the riff-raff
Cause I know better, I know better than that
Yeah, I spent a lifetime trying to make it
And when I finally faced the facts
I never felt so shitty before
I never felt so miserable Following familiar patterns
I’m falling back into ruin
I’m getting serious douche chills
Just being in this room
I couldn’t even see the humour
With the situation I was in
Knocking back jell-o shooters
Till I puked in the kitchenYeah I spent a long time down in the basement
Instead of rolling with the riff-raff
Cause I know better, I know better than that
I spent a lifetime trying to make it
And when I finally faced the facts
I never felt so shitty before
I never felt so miserableThey used to all talk down to me
And now they’re biting their tongues
Used to say, “Don’t quit your day job”
Well guess what, I never had one

I never felt so shitty before
I never felt so miserable

I spent a long time down in the basement
Instead of rolling with the riff-raff
Cause I am no better, I’m no better than that
Yeah, I spent a long time trying to make it
Well, I’ve finally faced the facts
I never felt so shitty before
I never felt so miserable

10). Pine Point
Oh in Pine Point, where I was born
The roads are all overgrown
And no one’s lived there for years
The town was never the same
The mine was closed in ’88
And everyone disappeared
In Pine Point, ’86
My older brother died when we were kids
His best friend was wasted at the wheel
Oh in Pine Point, nothing but memories
The abandoned cemetery
Where we buried our family And I hope you know, what you’re doing Up in Pine Point
Where I kept my eye on the prize
And it was you
It was you
Oh in Pine Point
Where I kept my eye on the prize
And it was you
It was youOh in Pine Point
It’s deteriorating
And your memory started fading
So you called to let me know
You said it seems like forever
Since we’ve seen each other
Where does the time go?
And I saidI hope you know, what you’re doing

In Pine Point
In the house we grew up in
You said the room you were born in
It was just like you left it

Oh in Pine Point
Where I kept my eye on the prize
And it was you
It was you
Oh in Pine Point
Where I kept my eye on the prize
And it was you
It was you

I hope you know
I hope you know what you’re doing after all
I hope that you know

I hope you know
I hope you know
What you’re doing after all
I hope that you know
What you’re doing
