This is a short collection of songs that we recorded under the name "Canary". These four songs originally appeared on the "Scissors and Blue" split EP series, courtesy of Jeff Cloud and Velvet Blue Music, in cooperation with our imprint, The Cut & Paste Collective. Also on this CD were three songs from the guys in Maple Union, who were then known as "Under The Red". Name changing seemed to be the thing to do at the time.

Hard copies of this CD are still available (and highly recommended) via VBM at <> .

Track Name: Make Up
Wash your hair in mother's milk
Dye it clean in baby's blood
Secret visits to a place in town
No mother's creed to wear you down

Quiet shy girl on her last thrill
It was a clean kill
To shake away and take away
The cuss word whispers in your hair
So have a care

To leave a note to wake up


So much nothing going 'round in this small town
We've seen the house-beaten wives with the factory night lives
And the life lost between the car and the bar gate
(you never know when it's too late)

And still a sound on the side of the last door
Left crack'd open enough for seekers to be fooled
And all God "lovers" in Sunday School
That she's a one, made in make up, in make up!

"Speaking to me words of release,
and so disease me with your Golden Ease…"

In a time, and time unknown
We click our heels…
But we never…
Get home…
