    We only printed 150 copies of this crazy little vinyl, so it's pretty damned special. Furthermore, the artwork was designed by the lovely Anna Kohlweis and the record sleeves were assembled by The Reverend John DeLore and his cat Motown. This is one of the funnest and most bizarre things we've ever recorded and we really hope that you guys have half as much fun listening to it as we did making it!

about

Last September, we spent a week in a Brooklyn brownstone basement with our friend the Reverend John Delore. When we get together, there are a few things that just happen: music making, surreal discussions, trouble-making at the surrounding watering holes, storytelling of an unmatchably high caliber, and documenting of all of the above. Thus, at the end of the week, we had a quirky 3 track EP, a record of the most relaxed and fun time we've ever had in the studio. We named it "Canadian Patriot Waitress" after a woman we met that week, one of the many characters that made that time singular. We printed 150 super limited edition, hand-stamped 7" vinyls full of shit-kicking, weepy country waltzes, rapturous agnostic gospel sing-a-longing, and a cut-off denim jacket with a Velvet-Elvis style painting of one of the band members delivering a sermon wearing only a cowboy hat and Hanes on the back. Reading this back, I can barely believe it myself.

Track Name: Nothing
Chorus:

From nothing to dust
And from dust to stone
And from stone to plant then man
And from man to plant
And from plant to stone
Then back to dust again

From where did nothing come?
Where will nothing go?
And where will I fit in
To a circle around me,
A circle through me,
And a life that starts
And ends?

Chorus

Sons and daughters
Killers, lovers,
Mothers, fathers,
Friends
Born with nothing
Dying with nothing
Living lives they think
They possess

Chorus

Skin and bones
Do come from those
Who have come
Before
And these skin and bones
Will one-day die
And be born
To another form

Chorus

What I can not see
In you and me
Has no name
Or face
It's neither here nor there
Nor anywhere
But is yet in
Everything

Chorus

We can look
We can search
With eyes made of earth
For things we can't hold in our hands
But that one thing we name
And that one thing we claim
Ist genau was mann nie
Verstehen kann!

Chorus
Track Name: Six Black Flags
Well there’s one little girl in the whole wide world
She waits for me
Two in the morning leaning on a gate
She waits for me in the city

Three whole days I blazed a trail
She waits for me
Four nights upon the sea I sailed
She waits for me in the city

Five blue hills were circled by doves
She waits for me
And six black flags were flying above
She waits for me in the city

Six black flags over the city
Where the gold always shines,
But the rust is prettier
I will kill a little time
I will sing a little ditty
It goes six black flags over the city

I saw seven drunk angels waving to me
Where can she be?
Eight minutes of fun I’m Jesus’ son
I wait for her in the city

Nine ninety nine for a bucket of wine
Where can she be?
Tender the night and cold the gate
I wait for her in the city

Eleven times eleven is one twenty one
Where can she be?
Twelve days of rain before it was done
I no longer wait in the city

Six black flags over the city
Where the gold always shines,
But the rust is prettier
I will write a little poem
I will sing a little ditty
It goes six black flags over the city
Six black flags over the city
Track Name: Fiction
believe in the truth
That’s why I write fiction
I believe that believing
Is half way to go
I believe in the stars
I believe their predictions
I believe in this world yes I do
So I know

I believe...

I believe that a lie
Can make something true
I believe in the lion
That led me to you
I believe in the snake
I believe in the crow
I believe in this world and that’s all
That I know

I believe...
