Al Tuck performs Chancellor, from Gordon Downie's 2001 album Coke Machine Glow

lyrics

CHANCELLOR (Gordon Downie)

Seconds from pajamas I must
First open all the doors and the windows
And invite the vampire in to be one of us

Then, in the guise of cool air
In the softer hours, he's there
Sitting, talking, in the voice of your mother
‘Bout leaving one good party for another
And the night of a thousand missteps
And the loss that made him dogged
Or it could have been the doggedness
That caused the loss in the first place, I guess.
I'm discovering uses for you I thought I'd never find
I could've made chancellor without you on my mind

Crazy daisies and wooden stars
The threat of oxygen on Mars
Marching armies in the night
Smiling strangers riding by on bikes
Children smoking, sloganeers on mics
Just a few things most vampires don't like
I'm discovering uses for you I thought I'd never find
I could've made chancellor without you on my mind

Before the dawning's first light I must
First close up all the doors and the windows
And try to trap that cool air in to be one with us
I'm discovering uses for you I thought I'd never find,
I could've made chancellor without you on my mind.
