Over 03:36
Over You welcomed me in Opened up your heart Now I’m some awful sin You’ve left back at the start It’s all over for me now I can’t stop thinking about you now It’s all over for me now I’m sure we did connect And made a silent deal How could you forget The way I made you feel It’s all over for me now I can’t stop thinking about you now It’s all over for me now I should have been aware That I’d be left behind You never really cared And can’t make up your mind I wish you well my friend Only the best of times I guess this is the end I’m reading all the signs It’s all over for me now I can’t stop thinking about you now It’s all over for me now

Out Back 02:09
Out Back I remember every single word And I’m sure you do too I know it was kind of absurd But it was all true I think everybody heard It was hard not to You can rest assured I was trying to hurt you Meet me out back And we can go toe to toe I’ll race you down the track How far will you go You never even washed a dish And you ate all my food I often used to wish You’d change your attitude You’re completely selfish Absolutely rude I hoped it wouldn’t come to this But it’s too late to elude Meet me out back And we can go toe to toe I’ll race you down the track How far will you go To steal the show To steal the show To steal the show

Strangest Dream I had the strangest dream last night I could not believe my sight There you were lying next to me So happy to be set free It’s been so long since I’ve felt you near I’ve been lonesome and drowning in tears I need to know where it is that you go Off on your own far away from home There’s no way to reach you No number to call Except in my dreams that’s all You asked if I missed you and I said for sure You’re the only one solid and pure And everthing is wrong now that you’re not around You’re nowhere to be found I need to know where it is that you go Off on your own far away from home There’s no way to reach you No number to call Except in my dreams that’s all This morning I woke up and rolled out of bed With an aching in my head The sun is high and shining bright But I can’t wait to sleep tonight I need to know where it is that you go Off on your own far away from home There’s no way to reach you No number to call Except in my dreams that’s all

Many Thanks 02:33
Many Thanks I thank the earth for this country I thank history for my family I thank Gibson for the SG And I thank you for leaving me I thank the sky for sunsets I thank my friends for no regrets I thank Malborough for cigarettes And I thank you for leaving me in debt I thank the future for what might be I thank today for what I see I thank Labatt for 50 And I thank you for leaving me Leaving me

Mid March Blues Gonna break out of here and leave all my things Gonna turn and change everything Gonna shoot for the moon and land in the stars Gonna follow advice from my heart Oh well I’ve tried for so long I still don’t know where I belong But at least I know now It’s far away from here Gonna break off of you and leave you behind Gonna throw away all that time Gonna stop all this thinking and put you on the shelf Gonna start to feel better about myself Oh well I’ve tried for so long I still don’t know where I belong But at least I know now It’s far away from you Oh well I’ve tried for so long I still don’t know where I belong But at least I know now It’s far away from here At least I know now It’s far away from here

To Be Good 02:10
To Be Good I’m obsessive, a bit possessive I don’t know when to stop and when to be aggressive I’m a mess, can’t handle stress I don’t know when to lie and when to confess I know I should And I think I could Try a little harder To be good I’m lazy, often hazy I don’t know when I’m sane and when I’m acting crazy I’m a crab, all things drab I don’t know when to drive and when to hail a cab I know I should And I think I could Try a little harder To be good I’m obsessive, a bit possessive I don’t know when to stop and when to be aggressive I’m a mess, can’t handle stress I don’t know when to lie and when to confess I know I should And I think I could Try a little harder To be good I know I should And I think I could Try a little harder To be good To be good
7.
Home 04:31
Home I’ve been across the country I’ve been lost and found and hungry And when I’m tired I go back home Where I’m not alone Where the smoke spills and rises high The sun sets and colours the sky There’s something in the air And I’m happy there I’ve been down the highway I’ve been back and forth and astray And when I’m tired I go back home Where I’m not alone Where the water is clear and reflects the moon The waves carry a mystery tune There’s something in the lakes Make no mistake I’ve been east and west I’ve been first and last and guest And when I’m tired I go back home Where I’m not alone Where the wind is warm and gently it blows The seasons change and quickly it snows There’s something in the air And I’m happy there
8.
All Things Passed I play it over and over again That same scene from way back when We’re in the room behind the mountain Waiting for you to plug in With the red light shining And the smoke fumes blinding From all things passed I hear it over and over again That same story from beginning to end But it’s still so unclear Why you’ve been taken away from here To a place unknown That can’t be shown With all things passed I say it time and time again It was so much better then Now I’m living in waves And fighting off craves Of all things passed I’m living in waves And fighting off craves Of all things passed
9.
Miles From Nowhere Another day has begun Before the rising sun Your feet hurt and your hands are stained Your body aches and your mind is drained But there’s no way around So you stop and stare And take in the Northern air You’re miles from nowhere And you don’t have to care Another day left to travel Before it all unravels You can see it, it’s in the distance You approach with resistance But there’s no way around So you stop and stare And take in the Northern air You’re miles from nowhere And you don’t have to care At the end of the day You watch the sun set across the bay And you know you’ll be okay If you stop and stare And take in the Northern air When you’re miles from nowhere When you’re miles from nowhere You don’t have to care You don’t have to care When you’re miles from nowhere

about

"Electric guitar wizardry, organs that sound like they were dragged out of a church basement in Sudbury, homey lap steel and sweet viola riffs, Maki spins a set of homespun alt-country folk-rock ditties that go down easy, like Southern Comfort and root beer." - NOW TORONTO

"There's something disarming about her gently fluttering country-folk delivery." - UNCUT

In the summer of 2003, Sudburian Kate Maki made the bold decision to leave her comfortable job as a grade school teacher and set out to pursue a career in music. Her first record, CONFUSION UNLIMITED, was a spark, the genesis of a voice, intrinsic and entirely her own. Recorded in Ottawa, Ontario by Dave Draves during the after school hours of the winter and spring of 2003, the songs took shape with help from friends (the Levecque brothers) and local talent (Jim Bryson, Fred Guignion). Originally intended as a Christmas gift for her family, the album earned favourable reviews for its mix of folk rock and alt-country and quickly sold out its initial printing.
