about

Liver Toronto, Ontario

Since 2014 Toronto four-piece LIVER has been dedicated to redefining/reinforcing the stereotype of what it means to be labeled a “Canadian” band. Their brand of Canadiana blends crunchy 90’s garage rock with elements of punk and emo that the band was bred on. LIVER embraces themes of Canadian history and identity in their song writing, as well as their own experiences as young Canadians. ... more

Track Name: New Apartment
Lots of reasons you should say that i should go
but no reasons why
I shouldn’t stay
Okay, I need a few more days to move around some things from the life we built together
you’ve listened to the old apartment one too many times
This is just a shitty breakup
Whether or not i like the song i don’t know
sounds too much like old cds in my car
Now i’m more depressed than you know but you belong to me
that’s love
it’s just the way it’s supposed to be
I’m sorry you’re the one
Tell your dad when you see him i know it was your mom on speaker’s corner fifteen years ago
Track Name: Grey Wolf
last night
at the bar you said
“I’m right; you can’t cope with this” I’m the same
as I’ve ever been
you’ve changed
I’m okay with it
in fact
I’m so damn fucking proud of you i know i don’t stand a chance
last year
I just dealt with it
I learned
how to cope with it
I’m a little drunk
you’re the one i want
I’m a little drunk
you’re the one i want
if there’s no hope for the cbc if you didn’t bring your phone what are we going to watch when we’re at home
Track Name: Little Giants (Rick)
how many can you name off your head?
the ones who changed the way you saw
the scenes I knew by heart
still rattle in my head
I understand
you lost her so we lost it

I believe that you were meant
to be in more movies I’d rent
they’d only have on vhs
I’d rent them still
I’d rent them still

Little Giants (x3)
Track Name: Live and Work Hard
Now I’ve been walking one line
I leave it alone
live and work hard
as long as i stay on the line I get to be with you
to live and work hard
live and work hard

now I’m wild like I’m caught on a wire
all seeing stars
or another fire
in the downtown
why do they keep building towers
down by the lake?
live and work hard
live and work hard

Mikey said we had miles to go
from a stage out back
to something more
now we’re the old folks at the bar
we’re the old folks at the bar
who live and work hard

you’re a wreck
and it’s a goddamn shame
we could have used another one like you
so I guess
I’ll get it off my chest
that i don’t get it, i don’t get it
no I’ll never understand
but I’ll still be at the bar
anytime you are
live and work hard

Mikey said we had miles to go
from a stage out back
to something more
now we’re the old folks at the bar
we’re the old folks at the bar
who live and work hard

Davey said we had days to go
on a rental car from Etobicoke
now we’re the old folks at the bar
we’re the old folks at the bar
who live and work hard
Track Name: If the Women Don't Find You Handsome...
If I could mend or I could tape
My heart for you I would
and use it again
If I could build anything I'd build it for you,
and use it myself

I'm a man but I can change
if I have to I guess

Seems to me
these days
if you're not young you're old
but I'm pulling' for you

We're All in this together

If I could mend or I could tape
My heart for you I would
and use it again
If I could build anything I'd build it for you,
and use it myself
Track Name: Northwest Passage
some are living for the trees and everything
some are looking for the good in everyone
they’re holding high
they’re holding high

others they’re just fucking awful
they’re raising worse than them still
they’re raising up
they’re raising up

it all comes down on us

me, I don’t have much experience
living with someone worse than me
so I know enough
not to fuck it up

it all comes down on us

and I heard there was a northwest passage
and I heard there was an arctic sea
want to know if I will be there someday

we’ve been together for awhile
we’ve been apart for awhile

and I heard there was a northwest passage
and I heard there was an arctic sea
want to know if I will be there someday
Track Name: Drivin' On Goddamn No Sleep
could you at least try
to stay awake
beside me for the drive
there’s lots of sights
on the last roads up north
that you’re too wasted to see
so you asked me to describe them to you

but what makes you think I won’t fall asleep myself
I got just as little sleep as you
we stayed up all night talking
now I’m up all night alone

what you lost out in the lake
hope to see again someday
and it helps when tiny hands
open up this tiny plan
make you a man
Track Name: Sister
my hometown
will be gone in ten years
i’m sorry
if you still live there
but you will learn to live again
you will learn to live again
and you'll do it on your own
far away from everyone

sister sister sister
forget yourself
mother mother mother
help me out

still some days we can harken back
to fucking caring for each other
when I cracked open my head
at the Goderich laundromat
and it was all your fault
i didn’t say a single thing
Track Name: Provincial Drivers
it’s a long way back
to your hometown
drive in shifts
and joke about
turning this thing around
you played for me Trans Canada
while I was still into Fully Completely
but you said

we’ll listen to it on the road

same argument we’ve had
so many times before
its hard to tell where you’ve changed
and where we’ve just gotten old
you played for me '71
while i wanted to hear We Were Born in a Flame
but you said

we’ll listen to it on the road
Track Name: Pissin' Cold
guessing you didn’t listen
you gave it away
or is it you’re too young
to stay with me
when I’m away

when we were on the lawn
you didn’t listen right
now it’s all in the pissing cold
you’re on fire
I’m alone

I didn’t ask you for this fight
now it’s all in the pissing cold
but i guess you know
since you brought a winter coat
when was the last snow?

my body’s out tonight
in need of a girl
you’re just his type
the kind you can ask to lie

a dead girl
a dead boy
their eyes had a dream of ottawa
where here
we won’t fucking waste our lives
day and night in the pissing cold

but she won’t do the things you do
but he won’t do the things you do
but she won’t do the things you do

a dead girl
a dead girl
her eyes had a dream of ottawa
of ottawa
i lost my coat
i didn’t care
i froze with you
on the bridge to Gatineau

I didn’t ask you for this fight
now it’s all in the pissing cold
but i guess you know
since you brought a winter coat
when was the last snow?

when was the last snow?
