Debut: 2004/06/23 Calgary, AB
Notes: After getting regular rotation throughout the 2004 'In Between Evolution Tour', Are We Family has only been played 5 times. Once in Calgary during the magical year in Hip History that was 2006 and 4 times early on the the 2009 'WATS Tour' as a part of the acoustic portion of the shows.


It's only human to want to inhabit every feeling you've got
And more often than not let's take it to the nth degree
Here he goes, "Give me ten bucks and a head start"
Here's where he goes, "The puzzle's pulling apart"

And here's the scene
You're yelling calmly up the street
"Are we family?"
Or what?

From happy go lucky to surly go crazy the lot
And more often than not admission to the battles is free
Here he goes, "Give me ten bucks and a head start"
Here's where he goes, "Pulling the puzzle apart"

And here's the scene
Where you whisper down the crookedest street
"Are we family?"
Or what?

Are we family
When it's only if not when
Sisters and brothers
Wolf, wolf lover
And the boy who stamped too many ants?
Are we family?

It's only human to want to inherit every feeling you've got
And like it or not let's take it to the nth degree
Here we go, "Give us ten bucks and a head start"
Here's where we go, "The puzzle's pulling apart"

And here's the scene
Your horse is going the wrong way up the street
Are we family?
Or what?

Are we family
When it's not if but when
Taking care of each other
One bullet to another
When it's all, "if a song can't save us then nothing can"
Are we family?
Or what?

Are we family or what?
Are we family or what?
Are we family or what?

To one another?
The lost to the recovered?
The new Caledonian crow to the chimpanzee?
The tribal jury to the pakistani teen?
Ill starred evenings to champion mystique?
Sick as a writer writing to be lighter than the uncanny
When the invasion of Antarctica's complete
Are we family?


Next song: Goodnight Josephine
Previous song: One Night In Copenhagen
