​Cooking In Wartime

This song is by The Tragically Hip and appears on the The Right Whale film on the bonus features DVD of Hipeponymous (2005).

It's almost too much
I pretty much just wanted to relate
Who you are more than what you think
"Down with beauty," they shouted from the gate
"Down with beauty," they shouted from the car
Like they could've been wearing bibs
Going no one knew where or how far or wherever that is
It's past the nth country and world state
Up with wilderness and popular plains
And sail to the clotheslines facing it
And facing it
Always facing it
Where the heaviest seas run with the wind
And that's the way to get through
And you said the fuck word over and over again
Where people lower their voices and douse their fires
That's what cooking in wartime requires
And it's almost too much
And it's almost too much
Okay, there are murderers among us crawling out of the TV
And there are murmurs that love is a song that may have gotten too cheap
And there are mermaids among us that don't give me your heaviest seas
Don't give me your heaviest seas
Don't give me your heaviest seas
It's almost too much
