Track Name: Magic Place
If I tell you of witches
And things you cannot see
If I say that birds can talk
You can listen to the trees
I never want to scare you
Or steer you from the truth
But fear and joy can share a face
Can make you feel askew

The world's a magic place for us
The world's a magic place for us
If I tell you this and I say it enough
You can feel it more than I do

If I tell you the specter's call or
Spirits and skinwalkers
If you hear the dead can knock
Never give it a second a thought

Disbelieve and believe what you see
Disbelieve and believe what you hear
Disbelieve and believe what you speak
You can and you can't believe

The world's a magic place for us
The world's a magic place for us
If I tell you this and I say it enough
You can feel it more than I do

Sit by the fire where your mother talks
The sacred fire where her mother taught her
And all the grandmothers and all the grandfathers
And all their grandmothers and all their grandfathers
This is how our myths are made
This is how our myths are saved
This is how our lives are shared
This is how our people cared
Track Name: Havoc
Why, said I, no way
Why, said I, no way
House and a yard
File your name away
Never solve your problem today

The earth, a sigh, and the waiting, oh the waiting
Another plane we could change it, we could change it
Nearly had another life, your love
The weight of your love, your life

The aftergaze of could have been
Seeing it won’t numb the burn,
You turn away
Reach through time
You’re dreaming
Alter time
Life asunder

Why, said I, you wreck havoc for yourself
And you know, I’m your one regret, realize it will be hell
Blood and the fire
And your own desire
You fear the night,
Fear the darkness of choosing a life

It’s been a long, long time
Hear me calling your name
This universe is wrong
I'll see you in the tangent
Track Name: Beautiful Noise
It's a beautiful noise
With a soft-spoken voice
It leaves me no choice

A shimmering tone
is singing me home
I'll wreck on your siren song

The rocks they will not sink me down
The waves will crash
But the storm will not blow me off course

I hear the sound of loss
The lonely lost
Mourning cry that calls me to you

To you, my North
The beaming star that leads me
The ringing bell that's guiding me home

A beautiful noise
With a soft-spoken voice
Leaves me no choice

A shimmering tone
is singing me home
I break on your siren call

The ports of call can't hold me, dear
Still I hear
The murmur of your tongue

And how the stories say, don't listen
They never knew a lover like you

Like you, my song
The keening sound that sends me
Keeling through your slipstreaming love

A beautiful noise
A soft-spoken voice
Leaves me no choice

A shimmering tone
is singing me home
I break on your siren call
Track Name: Streets
Behind these walls holy thieves
Selling souls they can't release

Careful son
You'll get your head blown off
On these streets

Brittle walls, heavy stones
Bullet holes, hollow bones

Hide your gun
And walk through daylight
Only please

Never go, never go,
Never go alone
Never go and lose your enemy

Watch your back
And keep your head down
Where you sleep

When you grow up feeling
The devil's all too real then
You never know the peace that lets you
Sleep before the sun comes up

Don't wanna wake up today
I'm only safe when I stay
Track Name: Outlawed Here on Earth
Happens when you least expect it
All your life you were the exception
"It won't happen to me," you say

If God didn't mean it to feel like this,
Then why does your blood rush up
And up and up and up and up and up
To meet the hit?

Even the angels forget you
Even the angels will leave you
Even the angels give you up
When you're outlawed here on earth
Innocent, you're not innocent, you're not

Feels like you're a captured soldier
Waiting for the end of torture
waiting anticipating
Holding on and on and on for it
Track Name: Seeing Red
I fantasize about suffocating you in my dreams
And I confide it’s probably best if you would just leave me
My mind is so fucked, I can’t see down for what’s up
I’m running, I’m running, I’m gunning for you my love

Ooh, I’ve lost my head
You make me see red

I cannot fight, I cannot fight,
I cannot fight for you any more

I must confess I see you motionless across my bed
Your love like roses is running out in red

Ooh, I’ve lost my head
You make me see red

I cannot fight
