'Chinatown Purgatory' is a nod to my old life in Victoria's Chinatown and was inspired by some of my greatest heartaches.

lyrics

Let me tell you a story 'fore the memory fades
To recount the years that flew by like days
Of the time I spent in Chinatown
Wish I could say I was Dorian Grey
But in truth I felt more Kurt Cobain
Living it up just to let you down
Spent four years drifting through the pain
Like the River Styx in the pouring rain
And all the while waiting for her
Now I know my heart ain't no Fort Knox
But she found a way she broke the locks
How it went down well its all a blur

Chinatown purgatory, You've had your hold on me (for so long)
Chinatown purgatory, It's time to set me free (so go on)

I won't ask for the open seas
A chest of gold or the ocean breeze
But to say its time for a change would be my style
I chose this cell to make some noise
Paint the town just me and the boys
But I'd trade it all just to see her smile
Its time to get down from that cross
Forget the pain forget the loss
Ain't no sense in going back
Sure there were some good old times
With the pints of gin and bottles of wine
Now its time to get on track

Chinatown purgatory, You've had your hold on me (for so long)
Chinatown purgatory, It's time to set me free (so go on)

What's done is done I can't change time
And even with those regrets in my mind
You know she's right when she says to let it go
Maybe I'm just a noble fool
But I've chose to live by a simple rule
You want to ride the river you got to let it flow

Chinatown purgatory, You've had your hold on me (for so long)
Chinatown purgatory, It's time to set me free (so go on)
