  • Lyrics
  • This song finds Sexsmith expressing gratitude for being Canadian. He explained to CBC Music: "This is just about how lucky I feel to have been born and raised in Canada. With the whole world seeming to be constantly growing insane, either with extreme weather or extreme horribleness, like in Syria, for example, you watch the news and think, wow, I'm so lucky to be living in this seemingly sane country. We have our own problems here too, but it was just about that and also, how it's amazing we can just go about our business when all that craziness is going on."
