Track Name: When The Ship Comes In
Oh the time will come up
When the winds will stop
And the breeze will cease to be breathin'.
Like the stillness in the wind
'Fore the hurricane begins,
The hour when the ship comes in.

Oh the seas will split
And the ship will hit
And the sands on the shoreline will be shaking.
Then the tide will sound
And the wind will pound
And the morning will be breaking.

Oh the fishes will laugh
As they swim out of the path
And the seagulls they'll be smiling.
And the rocks on the sands
Will proudly stand,
The hour that the ship comes in.

And the words that are used
For to get the ship confused
Will not be understood as they're spoken.
For the chains of the sea
Will have busted in the night
And will be buried at the bottom of the ocean.

A song will lift
As the mainsail shifts
And the boat drifts on to the shoreline.
And the sun will respect
Every face on the deck,
The hour that the ship comes in.

Then the sands will roll
Out a carpet of gold
For your weary toes to be a-touchin'
And the ship's wise men
Will remind you once again
That the whole wide world is watchin'.

Oh the foes will rise
With the sleep still in their eyes
And they'll jerk from their beds and think they're dreamin'.
But they'll pinch themselves and squeal
And know that it's for real,
The hour when the ship comes in.

Then they'll raise their hands,
Sayin' we'll meet all your demands,
But we'll shout from the bow your days are numbered.
And like Pharaoh's tribe,
They'll be drownded in the tide,
And like Goliath, they'll be conquered.
Track Name: Best Morning
Best Morning
(Paroles et musique: Desmarais-Racine)

Meet me in the morning
Before the summer dies
Meet me before you go do your things
That keep you so alive
I hate small talk but I'll do my best
To make it interesting
And when I'm done
I'll give my smile to you
And you can go on do your things
I know it will be
The best morning I had in weeks

I'm not gonna bring you diamonds
I'm not gonna bring you gold
I'm not gonna bring you anything
That can compromise your soul
I'm gonna wait by the river banks
Like that one time in spring
If you can't remember
It's down by the river
Where you can hear me sing
Just show up and make
The best morning I had in weeks

Meet me at the stations
Meet me at the school
Meet me anywhere you want
I promise I'll be cool
I won't mention the envy
And the worst-case scenario
I'll bring some wine
And something to eat
And Rick Davies on stereo
Then I know it will be
The best morning I had in weeks

Track Name: Minimize My Love
Minimize My Love
(Paroles et musique: Desmarais-Racine)

A Asus4

C F
I've been countin' the days
C
Since you left
F
But now I think
G C
I'll start to count for real

C F C
I feel empty all the time
G/B Am
Can't you see?
F
The love you found
G A
Is still a part of me

C#m
I did understand
F#m
Everything you said
Bm
Well not clearly everything
A
But some of it I guess

C#m
But the fact is
F#m
That I didn't had those feelings
Bm
For a girl since at least
D G A
Five long years

F
So don't you
G C G/B Am
Minimize my love, baby please
F G C C7
Don't you remember how it was?
F G
Don't you realize
C G/B Am
That it was such a tease?
F G A
To show me how it can really feel

I've been wishin' for the rain
Every step
To make it
Ok to be inside

The sun in the sky is too often
There I think
It's not fair
For those of us who are sick

One month of your lovin'
And then it's finally gone
What made you
Strangely change your mind?

'Cause now I pay the price
For 40 days of love
With a life-sentence
Of scars and blue sorrow

So don't you
Minimize my love, baby please
Don't you remember how it was?
Don't you realize
That it was such a tease?
To show me how it can really feel

Am
The minutes passes
E7
The more you flee
Am E7
The more you're far from me
Am
The painter cries
Dm
The muse is free
G A
She'll inspire him eternally

'Cause now it's been
Six months already
And now this
Kinda feel silly

I'm still writing all those songs
For this girl
Who made it clear
That she didn't loved me

But I can't deny
Those feelings that I had
And that I still have
They're really there to stay

The only thing I can think of
To make it more okay
Is to write those songs
It is the only way

So don't you
Minimize my love, baby please
Don't you remember how it was?
Don't you realize
That it was such a tease?
To show me how it can really feel
F G Am
Why are you afraid to feel?

Septembre 2012
Track Name: Le Pied Tendre
L'ambiance était pas mal intense
Moi pis l'pied tendre enfermés dans la banque
Un vol pas full ben planifié
C'est l'fils du maire qui nous avait stoolés
C'était supposé prendre juste 3 minutes
Ça va finir pendu par la nuque
Quand les hommes du shérif se sont pointés
Mon partenaire n’a pas apprécié
Ou bien vous sortez gentiment
Ou bien vous sortez les pieds devant

Tout avait ben commencé
Sauf le pied tendre qui était ben trop stressé
Le gérant de banque se tenait tranquille
Pendant qu'on comptait les ''dollar bills''
Quand les fédéraux se sont pointés
Mon acolyte a complètement disjoncté
Ça surpris drette comme un orage
En un éclair c'était devenu une prise d'otage
Ou bien vous sortez gentiment
Ou bien vous sortez les pieds devant

Le curé a fait son apparition
Pour nous faire retrouver la raison
On l'a laissé venir nous parler
Question de voir si on pouvait négocier
Autour d'une bouteille de vin de messe
C'tait de même que ça se réglait au Far West
Au bout de deux heures et quart
Pied tendre a envoyer le curé chez l'croque-mort
Ou bien vous sortez gentiment
Ou bien vous sortez les pieds devant

Là moi j'étais en beau tabarnac
Le pied tendre j'en avais vraiment ma claque
Après 10 ans de collaboration
J'en ai convenu qui était un peu moron
Y'avait souvent l'habitude de se mettre
3-4 pépites d'or entre les deux fesses
Faque finalement je l'ai tiré
En prison le shérif m'a félicité
Moi j'suis sorti gentiment
Pied tendre est sorti les pieds devant

Août 2013
Track Name: Le Goudron et Les Plumes
Le goudron et les plumes
Quel élégant costume
L'horizon du désert
À travers
La caravane du shérif
Me drop du précipice
La prison est moins chiante
Que la souffrance

Pour le crime que j'ai commis
Je dois en payer le prix
Mais dois-je aussi subir la honte?
Le temps arrange les chose
Le spleen noircit ma prose
Le destin règle enfin ses comptes

J'ai subi un procès
Sans même pouvoir me défendre
Les gens du village me prennent
Pour un cancre
Le sable colle à ma peau
C'est comme un coup de couteau dans l'dos
Les coyotes rient de mon sort
J'attends la mort

L'avenir semble se répéter
Je reçois ce qui pendait sous l'nez
L'insouciance est restée trop longtemps
Je marche droit devant mon vécu
Couvert d'la tête jusqu'au cul
Obsédé par tous vos jugements

Le goudron et les plumes
Il faudra bien que j'assume
Je marche vers le soleil couchant
Reluisant

Track Name: Song For Willy
Song for Willy
(paroles et musique: Desmarais-Racine)

Once upon a time
In Trenton, NJ
Lived a country boy
Who longed for a journey
Almost every day
He was talking about it
But in the end he stayed
And he did not do shit

CHORUS:
Here's a song for you Willy
Only you can make it work
Take this song with you Willy
And give it birth

When he woke in the morning
His stuck in the ground
By the late evenin'
He was ready for showdown
Travelling the globe
And sleep in big hotels
But he's turning 24
And his life's a living hell

CHORUS

C'mon Willy boy
Your time is in a swirl
Cultivate this soil
And you will see the world
C'mon dear Willy
Your time is almost up
Your dream's in a hurry
Now you must never stop

The callings of the gods
Are meant to be answered
The pounding of the drums
Is part of your culture
Take this song of mine
And give it a new life
Forget about those ruins
They cut you like a knife

CHORUS X2

Track Name: 2 Way Street
2-Way Street
(paroles et musique: Desmarais-Racine)

Dark clouds hung above me
Thinkin' 'bout being denied
Is this what happened when you die?
Wandering through the city
Couldn't even read the sign
Can you tell I'm out of my mind?

Carry me on through the lecture
Needless to say I did not lie

Shrouded by your scenery
I walk the floor since you left me
Tell me why?
Blinded by the ecstasy
I grew tired of misery
Tell me why?

Been around twice as many
Happiness is never fine
Is this a pattern of your time?
I bet you all my gold teeth
I won't have peace of mind
Until I'm cured from being blind

The Stage Coach driver was arrested
He thought his winged-horses could fly

We would have made the perfect team
Guided by each others dream
And get by
The two of us in harmony
Providing a sweet melody
And get by

Watching you drooling on me
I wish this movie never ends
It's a bad movie in french
All I got's the memory
but they're starting to fade away
And now I'll always despise May

Barman could you pour me a tall one?
I'm not yet, ready to cry

'Cause my woman just left me
I need some sort of remedy
I could die
The Albatros are oversea
But the Sparrow here is still lonely
I could die

Now there's only one more options
You go your way and I'll go mine
But you can come back anytime
'Cause if someday you're running empty
All you need to do is look behind
The 2-way street isn't hard to find


JANVIER 2013
Track Name: Dreamin' Man
I'm a dreamin' man,
yes, that's my problem
I can't tell
when I'm not being real.
In the meadow dusk
I park my Aerostar
With a loaded gun
and sweet dreams of you.

I'll always be a dreamin' man
I don't have to understand
I know it's alright.

I see your curves and
I feel your vibrations
You dressed in black and white,
you lost in the mall
I watch you disappear
past Club Med Vacations
Another sleepless night,
a sun that won't fall.

I'll always be a dreamin' man
I don't have to understand
I know it's alright.

Now the night is gone,
a new day is dawning
And our homeless dreams
go back to the street
Another time or place,
another civilization
Would really make
this life feel so complete.

I'll always be a dreamin' man
I don't have to understand
I know it's alright.

Dreamin' man
He's got a problem
Dreamin' man
Dreamin' man
He's got a problem
Dreamin' man.
Track Name: T'es Belle Mais Blasée
T'es belle, mais blasée
Avec tes yeux en trou de cul de poule
Comme une reine adulée
Par une immense foule
Étendue là comme une fleur séchée
Tu t'fais aller l'égo
Même si t'as l'air de t'emmerder
Tu me laisses t'prendre en photo
Ça sent pas juste la tendresse dans pièce
Ça sent aussi le mépris
On s'aime de même pis on se fout du reste
Pis ensemble on s'ennuie

Chu stoned, t'es en jogging
Dehors y pleut des chats
Y fait frette pis on écoute du Sting
Pis le disque saute même pas
Bon ben ça y est je t'ai démasqué
Dans le fond t'es une star
T'es dans mon appart évachée
Tu viens de gagner un oscar
Tu me dis que mes sujets t'intéressent
Quand j'te parle de d'autres chose
On s'aime de même pis on se fout du reste
Pis ensemble on s'impose

Dans un tourbillon d'émotion
On s'est séparé
À chaque extrémité du salon
On continue de s'aimer

Tu rayonnes, mais t'es chiante
Chu après succomber
À ta parlure de matante
Pis tes airs distingués
On s'obstine sur toute sorte d'affaires
Comme mon obsession pour Neil Young
Tu me dis qu'y chante comme ta grand-mère
Pis moi j'te traite de conne
On sent tout à coup un frette
Pis tu me bas à Mario Bros.
On s'aime de même pis on se fout du reste
Pis ensemble on est poche


NOVEMBRE 2013
Track Name: Just Like a Woman
Nobody feels any pain
Tonight as I stand inside the rain
Ev’rybody knows
That Baby’s got new clothes
But lately I see her ribbons and her bows
Have fallen from her curls
She takes just like a woman, yes, she does
She makes love just like a woman, yes, she does
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl

Queen Mary, she’s my friend
Yes, I believe I’ll go see her again
Nobody has to guess
That Baby can’t be blessed
Till she sees finally that she’s like all the rest
With her fog, her amphetamine and her pearls
She takes just like a woman, yes, she does
She makes love just like a woman, yes, she does
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl

It was raining from the first
And I was dying there of thirst
So I came in here
And your long-time curse hurts
But what’s worse
Is this pain in here
I can’t stay in here
Ain’t it clear that—

I just can’t fit
Yes, I believe it’s time for us to quit
When we meet again
Introduced as friends
Please don’t let on that you knew me when
I was hungry and it was your world
Ah, you fake just like a woman, yes, you do
You make love just like a woman, yes, you do
Then you ache just like a woman
But you break just like a little girl
