Track Name: What the Leopards Reject
You’re the one that always cries danger
You’re the one that talks to strangers
Sleeping up against the wall
With one eye open

All alone I’ve been dreaming in color
From the fields I see another
Quiet as the atmosphere
Quiet as I lay here
With one eye closed to everywhere you’ve been

Do you see everything I wonder
Can you feel my blood down under
Listen to my heart beat
Creeping up behind you

You’re the one that always cries danger
You’re the one that talks to strangers
Sleeping up against the wall
With one eye open
And one eye closed to everywhere you’ve been
Track Name: One Foot in the Ocean
If you’re afraid to ask then I don’t want to tell
You got two tricks left and none to fail
So let your jet-lagged heart move on
You got one foot in the grave
You got one foot in the ocean
And that’s all right

I can’t forgive you yet until you pay the price
Don’t reinvent yourself just to suit the lies
Let them out for all to see
You got one foot in the grave
You got one foot in the ocean

Don’t give away your age until you lose the fight
‘Cause I would never guess and I’m never right
And without shame and without fail
You got one foot in the grave
You got one foot in the ocean
And that’s all right

If you’re afraid to ask then I don’t want to tell
You got two tricks left and none to fail
So let your jet-lagged heart move on
You got one foot in the grave
You got one foot in the ocean
And that’s all right
Track Name: The Killing
Sometimes drifting and left here twisting
I could not move you or make you better
Oh no, I look behind but not fall down
At the sound

All this killing this peaceful feeling
I will not show you the fear inside me
Oh no, I have no ghost in this fight
Tonight

I have no ghost in this fight tonight
I have no ghost in this fight

Dry these tears of midnight theories
They burn so brightly I move too quickly
And fade to the sun and stars
I fade

I have no ghost in this fight tonight
I have no ghost in this fight

PICTURES OF THE NIGHT
Track Name: Pictures of the Night
You go out alone taking pictures of the night

Slipping out while others sleep
There’s nothing here that’s left to dream
You’re watching from a high wire
Tell me now what lovers say
When you go out alone taking pictures of the night

Wilson down to 63rd
They’re fighting on the red line
You promenade and watch them bleed
There’s something there you’ve never seen
When you go out alone taking pictures of the night

Easing out across the drive
Desperate now to stay alive
It’s cold enough to touch their wings
Careful when you let them in
When you go out alone taking pictures of the night
Track Name: Buried in a Landslide
Bathing in the twilight the words are falling
You don’t realize the torture or how you make a scene
And sometimes I blow up
Sometimes you’re just too much
Sometimes you’re just enough

Maybe when you touch down I’ll be by your side
Buried in the landslide of how you make me feel
And sometimes you blow up
Sometimes it’s just too much
Sometimes it’s just enough
To keep me on
To keep me on

Counting down the silence until we lift the veil
Holding up our enemies, they never suspect
That sometimes we blow up
Sometimes we’re just too much
Sometimes we’re just enough
Sometimes we’re just enough
Track Name: Run for the Cause
Hung down among the pines
Wide eyed from the storm
On my skin I feel the night
Creeping in

As the moon was winding down
You took the fire from the stars
And the light out from the sun

You were falling once again
All alone for the last time

I explode in the cold when you hold me
It’s been such a long way to love you

As the world takes us on
We always run for the cause
We believe in our own perfection

Now you make the skies thin blue
Underneath before you move
Down around me, down the road
Track Name: Girls in Green
Fix your eyes upon the water
The dark it falls down your shoulder
Shake the winter from your hips
And rest your weary midnight fists

As the girls in green take the stage
Oh the girls in green show their age

Kneel down safe my sorry soldier
And rise up slow when you’re called
Sailing restless starting riots
A wind so soft that kept its promise

As the girls in green take the stage
Oh the girls in green show their age
Track Name: Laughing With My Enemies
I got up to follow, I got up to see you
I got up to feel you through the door
And you stood right beside me
Laughing with my enemies through the door

Nothing is allowed here but everything is possible
The past is just a story we tell ourselves
When we went down a storm
We went down to the wire on our own

Maybe I didn’t change the way I needed to
Think of anything you might erase
When you stand right beside me
Laughing with my enemies through the door
Track Name: I'll Follow You to the Sun
I’ve been awake here way too long
Thinking out loud since you’ve been gone
The yellow moon stays by my side
Until the morning starts to rise

And I’ve been dreaming you wake up
Here with me wherever I run

Deep under this night’s warm glow
You’re pulling me in nice and slow
But can you find me in the dark?
I’m close enough to catch a spark

Of course I feel you here with me
Hold my hand and baby we’ll come down

I’ll follow you all the way to the sun
You bring the love and I’ll take the fire from you
You bring the love and I’ll take the fire from you
I’ll follow you all the way to the sun

We should swear then by this moon
That we’ll never run alone
We could sit under these stars
And wait for the light to take us home

I’ll follow you all the way to the sun
Track Name: The Indian River
In a love-struck summer
Near the Indian River
In a night long fever
Don’t make me wait
Don’t make me war
With you
Don’t make me war

Let’s stand on shoulders in all this this beauty
‘Cause we might be changing
And the words are failing me
But I might forgive you
Sometimes
I might forgive you
