“Wreck’d us our countrie’s amok torn thru with birds thee sky’s a bruis’d unreckoning thee shore’s bled dry but tepid waters.
To bury the lead in trebl’d biss, thatch the following-
Bucket-Wire, Dung, God’s Pee
(decant-incant-recant)
Our citie’s grace and pain a stinkin’ wind – a plague of policemen and our dreams, alit, sinking in the harbour thee onlookers’ stare.”

Other notes:
The artist is credited on the actual release only as “God’s Pee”, printed on the back cover, spine, and dust sleeve. Some copies have “Godspeed You! Black Emperor” printed on a [url=https://img.discogs.com/BUet9roscgftaow_eKKvBB9sSWg=/fit-in/600×627/filters:strip_icc():format(jpeg):mode_rgb():quality(90)/discogs-images/R-3917263-1357648184-3501.jpeg.jpg]front-cover sticker[/url].

While noted here as sides A, B, C, D, the center labels list them respectively as sides A1, A2, B1, B2.

The YouTube video referenced in the runout groove of side D is “Once Upon a Time in Athens: The Legend of the Riot Dog”, showing various photos of Loukanikos, a stray dog that was present at many protests in Greece around 2010.
