A live recording of our favourite song, Slide Right In.
Recorded at Cameron House in Toronto with a hand held tape recorder


looking for a spot
minivan in a compact lot
afraid of scraping the sides
and the drivers

(saying) look at this dumb kid
looks like he would fit in
but his sad eyes
look too far down

to see his place
to see his place
and even if they did, his arms are too weak
to turn the wheel
to shift the gear
and slide right in to what’s right there in front of him

punch ‘em in a dream
but they just laugh at me
cuz my fists move underwater

so powerless
that’s what it means i guess
maybe one day
i’ll open my eyes

and hit for real
and love and feel
less like vellela and more like the river
why is that
too much to ask
for i’m not tryna be some kind of big force

oh my god
i just want things to flow through me
walk with purpose, speak so coolly,
have a plan, honest i am
not asking for a bluetooth just a blueprint or a map
need someone to be like, “man you’ve got time”
“man you’ll be fine”, “man you will find
a place that’s cut out just like a cut out
of your soul, of your body, of your strengths, and of your hobbies
and you will slide
slide right in
slide right in
slide right in

maybe there’s no lot
maybe there’s no open spots
maybe you can never stop

but it’s nice to believe
there’s some asphalt and concrete
waiting out there for me

and that one day
i’ll see my place
and i’ll be ready yeah wise and strong enough
to turn the wheel
to shift the gear
and slide right in to what’s right there in front of me
