Last played: 2007/07/05 Bala, ON
Debut: 1990/06/22 Toronto, ON
Album: Road Apples (1991)
Notes: A HUGE fan favourite that the band has seen fit to only play once live at a proper concert since 1999 despite trotting out NOIS night after night after night... I would rank Highway Girl & Thirty-Eight Years Old above Cordelia in the category of Most Ignored Song Request.


Angst on the planks, spittin' from a bridge
Just to see how far down it really is
Robbing a bank, jumping from a train
Old antiques a man alone can entertain

It takes all your power
To prove that you don't care
I'm not Cordelia, I will not be there

Tin can man, dragging from a car
Just to see how alive you really are
Marrying words, falling in your wake
Just to tell what you can't eliminate

Treading the boards, screaming out Macbeth
Just to see how much bad luck you really get
Jump in the ring with your hidden cape
The bull can't decide what it is that he really hate

Angst on the planks, spittin' from a bridge
Just to see how far down it really is
Robbing a bank, jumping from a train
Old antiques a man alone can entertain

Thief lingers on, on his hands and knees
Must be one more thing here, I really need
Die in your dreams, falling on your knife
A thief blinded on the job, has to steal for life
