  • In a crooked little town, they were lost and never found
    Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves on the ground

    I hitched a ride, until the coast
    To leave behind, all of my ghosts
    Searching for something, I couldn't find at home

    Can't get no job, can you spare a dime?
    Just one more hit, and I'll be fine
    I swear to God, this'll be my one last time!

    In a crooked little town, they were lost and never found
    Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves on the ground
    Run away before you drown, or the streets will beat you down
    Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves on the ground

    When it gets dark, in Pigeon Park
    Voice in my head, will soon be fed
    By the vultures, that circle round the dead!

    In a crooked little town, they were lost and never found
    Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves... on the ground
    Run away before you drown, or the streets will beat you down
    Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves on the ground

    I never once thought, I'd ever be caught!
    Staring at sidewalks, hiding my track marks!
    I left my best friends, or did they just leave me?

    In a crooked little town, they were lost and never found
    Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves on the ground
    Run away before you drown, or the streets will beat you down
    Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves on the ground

    Run away before you drown!
    Fallen leaves, fallen leaves, fallen leaves on the ground Writer/s: Aaron Solowoniuk, Ben Kowalewicz, Ian D'sa, Jon Gallant

  • Dennis from Toronto, OnOkay let me correct you and introduce my old self. I am the Base Guitars Father in Law. Jon use to live in my house while he was building his Condo. I love him like my own son. Fallen Leaves is about the Heroin Addicts in Vancouver. During the recording of their first album they stayed in an inexpensive hotel right beside the Grandville Bridge. In the morning the Junkies were looking through the garbage bins for Breakfast. If you ever have been too Vancouver you would likely remember the worlds biggest maple Leaves. The Park mentioned in the song is real, the suffering is real and the Junkies leave their folks out to the coast... Go to, Devil at Midnight Mass, Nothing too Loose, and Killer Bees and I will tell you more.
