There's a place in the hills above North Bay
Where me and Chris used to go just to smoke all day
Watching the fall colours blazing
Staring out at the islands high above the lake

Stagger down the trail at night
To firefly lights and mosquito bites
Hit the Mac's for some smokes and snacks
And then we'd, stumble home across the railroad tracks

But I'm here on the West Coast
There's nothing but death and ghosts
Out on the West Coast
Nothing but death and ghosts

Over the hills and far away
I took the road as far as the road could take me
Kept walking just a little bit farther
Till I set foot in Eden's garden

Saw the beast that feasts on the flesh
Of the people that's dying to save our last breath
So I figured it was time I left
When the place I loved became a place of death for me

Hit the city like a stupid hick
In my Kamik boots with three g's and a brick
Made my living by the scissors' clip
And when the business was good I gave the biggest of tips

Tried my hand at an honest trade but
It was nothing like the money I made, I
Blunt my feelings at the end of the day but
Money is evil and there is no escape from it
