Public transit in winter: don’t expect to make it home from work on time, even when your driver is John Samson. It’d be a more entertaining ride, at least, were a band playing at the back of the bus.
Interesting fact: civil twilight occurs twice per day—once in the morning and once in the evening. It’s likely the latter we’re seeing here, as dusk is mentioned. Second interesting fact: the “Confusion Corner” referenced at the start of the song is a real and complex intersection in Winnipeg.
“Civil Twilight” comes from The Weakerthans’ Reunion Tour album.
