Track Name: Love In Times Of War
LOVE.
IT TAKES A WAR, YOU FOUGHT BEFORE,
YOU RUN, YOU HIDE ONE DAY YOU’LL FIND
THAT WHAT WAS HERE IS OVER THERE
AND ALL YOU KNOW ONE DAY WILL BURN
IN TIMES OF WAR, THIS LOVE MEANS MORE
AND WE'LL TURN GREY ONE DAY

SAME TIME NEXT YEAR
WE’LL STILL BE HERE
AND WE WON’T FEAR
DARLING YOU’LL SEE,
ONE DAY WE’LL BE
ON THE WIN STREAK

TIME.
ANOTHER YEAR THE TURNING SPHERE
FROM GREEN TO RED ONE DAY YOU’LL GET
TO TAKE A STANCE HOW WILL YOU DANCE
HOW WILL YOU PLEAD ONE DAY YOU’LL NEED
TO LOSE CONTROL AND SAVE YOUR SOUL
AND GO NOT STAY ONE DAY

SAME TIME NEXT YEAR
WE’LL STILL BE HERE
AND WE WON’T FEAR
DARLING YOU’LL SEE,
ONE DAY WE’LL BE
ON THE WIN STREAK

WHAT CAN WE DO MY LOVE
WE PULL BACK TOGETHER
AND FALL APART
THEY SAY ALL IS FAIR IN THIS GAME
OF WAR AND LOVE

DON’T WORRY PLEASE DON’T WORRY
JUST REMEMBER THIS IS ALL A DREAM
DON’T WORRY PLEASE DON’T WORRY
CAUSE IT TAKES A WAR TO WIN
ONE DAY

LOVE. IT TAKES A WAR...
Track Name: Cary Grant
LOOK AT ALL THE STARS, DROWNING IN THE DARK
MESS I HELPED CREATE...TOO LATE
I CAN STILL DESCRIBE THE PANIC IN YOUR EYES...

IN PRESENT TENSE, IT ALL DEPENDS
ON WHAT YOU’VE DONE, ON SONGS YOU’VE SUNG
THE LIGHT AT NIGHT ALWAYS SEEMS BRIGHT
IT’S EASIER TO CLOSE YOUR EYES,
CLOSE YOUR EYES

I CAN’T SIT STILL, I TURN AND TOSS
I JUST CAN’T FILL, MY INNERMOST
SOMETIMES I WANT A CIGARETTE
SO I CAN FEEL LIKE CARY GRANT

WE DO OUR BEST, IT CAN’T GET WORSE
WE TELL OURSELVES AND HOPE IT WORKS
WE DO OUR BEST

IT’S RAINING OUT, WE’RE STAYING IN
IF THERE’S NO DOUBT, THERE CAN’T BE SIN
THE BLEEDING HEART OF COMMON MAN
IS ON TV ON CHANNEL TEN

WE DO OUR BEST, IT MAY GET WORSE
WE TELL OURSELVES AND HOPE IT WORKS
WE DO OUR BEST

TELL ME, WAS THERE SOME OTHER WAY
WHERE THERE THINGS I DIDN’T SAY
WAS THERE SOME OTHER WAY

LOOK AT ALL THE STARS, DROWNING IN THE DARK...
Track Name: Here You Are
EVER SINCE YOU FOUND YOU WERE DEFEATED
YOU WANTED TO FALL IN LOVE AGAIN
EVER SINCE THEY SAID YOU WERE NOT NEEDED
YOU WANTED TO HELP SOMEONE AGAIN

EVER SINCE YOUR HOME WORLD WAS DEPLETED
YOU STARTED TO BUILD IT UP AGAIN
EVER SINCE YOUR ARMIES ALL RETREATED
YOU VOWED TO WIN THE WAR FOR THEM

YOU WERE LYING ON THE HILLSIDE
AMONG THE PLANETS AN’ALL THE STARS

YOUR HEART SO OPEN AND YOUR EYES WIDE
IT DOESN’T MATTER WHERE YOU’VE BEEN…HERE YOU ARE

EVER SINCE YOU FOUND YOU WERE DEFEATED,
YOU WANTED TO FALL IN LOVE AGAIN.
Track Name: Home Is Where The Gun Is
ALL THE WAY FROM NORTH VIETNAM,
I FORGOT JUST WHO I AM
LOST MY WAY, ALL THE WAY.
I FORGOT JUST WHO I AM
RAISE YOU’RE GLASS IT’S NEW YEARS EVE,
GRAB YOU’RE GUN AND COVER ME.
ALL THE WAY, ALL THE WAY

TRY YOUR HAND AT THIS ROULETTE
SPIN IT SIDEWAYS, SEE JUST WHAT YOU GET
I CHANGED ALL THE RULES I KNEW
HELP ME FIND MY, WAY BACK HOME TO YOU

LONGEST NIGHT I LAY AWAKE
SHORTEST DAY AND SUN WON’T BREAK
THEY’RE NO CORNERS IN THIS ROOM
ALL MY WINNINGS ON DISPLAY
FOR THE FACES WITH NO NAMES
LOST MY WAY, ALL THE WAY

TRY YOUR HAND AT THIS ROULETTE
SPIN IT SIDEWAYS, SEE JUST WHAT YOU GET
I CHANGED ALL THE RULES I KNEW
HELP ME FIND MY WAY BACK HOME TO YOU

DON’T WORRY, I’LL BE THERE WITH YOU
Track Name: In Lieu
THERE WERE DAYS I THOUGH WE COULD
BE SOMETHING ELSE, BE SOMEONE ELSE
AND THESE DAYS I KNOW IN LIEU
OF MAKING AMENDS WE JUST PRETEND
TAKE ME WITH YOU TO SEE THE SIGHTS
BEFORE IT GETS DARK, IT’S GETTING SO DARK

IT BREAKS ME DOWN AND WHEN I WOKE,
YOU TURNED AND SPOKE TO ME

SEE THE DAYS GO BY IN A FLURRY OF BLURRED HEADLINES
LOOKING TO MAKE YOUR WAY,
TROUGH CROWD OF STRANGERS EYES
AND WHEN YOU FIND YOURSELF
IN MOMENT YOU DON’T RECOGNIZE
YOU’RE ON THE STREET
AND DAY TURNS TO NIGHT

IT BREAKS ME DOWN AND WHEN I WOKE,
YOU TURNED AND....

I WAS OUT OF MY HEAD,
WHAT WAS I EVEN THINKING
ALL ALONG, I DON’T KNOW
ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD
THERE WERE SIGNS I KEPT MISSING
WERE WE WRONG TO GO ON?
Track Name: 700 Ways
YOU’VE TAKEN THEM ALL ON, HOW DO YOU FIND THE STRENGTH
YOU LEFT NO STONE UNTURNED AND NO ONE TO FORSAKE
WITH ALL WE’VE BEEN THROUGH WHERE IS THE LOVE
WITH ALL YOU TOOK, YOU GAVE NOTHING BACK

WE STOOD AT HEAVEN’S GATE, I WATCHED YOU BUILD A WALL
I SEEN YOU FALL FROM GRACE, I THOUGH I’VE SEEN IT ALL
WITH ALL WE’VE BEEN THROUGH, WHERE IS THE LOVE
WITH ALL YOU TOOK, YOU GAVE NOTHING BACK

WHERE IS THE LOVE
I AM OUT OF SECOND CHANCES
I AM AT THE END OF MY ROPE
WHERE IS THE LOVE
I CAN’T HOLD ON MUCH LONGER
AND DON’T YOU KNOW

LOOK AT THE MESS WE’RE IN, THE RUIN IN OUR WAKE
WE PLANTED SEEDS OF LOVE BUT THERE’S NO FRUIT TO TAKE
WITH ALL WE’VE BEEN THROUGH, WHERE IS THE LOVE
WITH ALL YOU TOOK, YOU GAVE NOTHING BACK

WHERE IS THE LOVE
I AM OUT OF SECOND CHANCES
I AM AT THE END OF MY ROPE
WHERE IS THE LOVE
I CAN’T HOLD ON MUCH LONGER
AND DON’T YOU KNOW

RUIN IN OUR WAKE, OH WHAT YOU DO TO ME
SEVEN HUNDRED WAYS YOU GOT A HOLD ON ME
FILL MY EMPTY SPACE, THRILL ME WITH YOUR DISEASE
SEVEN HUNDRED WAYS, I AM HOLDING ON
Track Name: Sapling
SHE WAS BETTER THAN ME,
WITH UNCOMMON CARE AND COMPASSION FOR ALL
SHE PLANTED A TREE,
IN THE LATE SUMMER GRASS THAT FORESHADOWED THE FALL

SHE SET OFF FROM HER HOME
SEALING HER PROMISE WITH A KISS AND A WAVE
HOW COULD SHE HAVE KNOWN
THE PEOPLE SHE LEFT THERE WOULD SUDDENLY SLIP AWAY

FALLING LIKE LEAVES FROM THE FRESH SAPLING TREES
BY HER ROOM

THE PLANS THAT SHE MADE
SHATTERED AND SCATTERED BY THE WINDS THAT BLEW THROUGH
HOW DREAMS START TO FADE
WHEN THE GROUND THAT YOU’VE STOOD ON IS CRUMBLING
UNDER YOU

I SAW HER TODAY
A HARD SMILE SHE GAVE ME TO SHIELD OFF THE PAIN
I HAD MUCH MORE TO SAY
BUT SILENTLY WATCHED HER HEAD BACK TO THE TRAIN
A WANDERING FORM
WALKING THROUGH LIFE LIKE SHE’S TREADING ON COALS
HOW TO ACCOUNT FOR THE STORM
THAT PASSES BY MANY BUT LANDS ON A FEW POOR SOULS

FALLING LIKE LEAVES FROM THE FRESH SAPLING TREES BY HER ROOM
Track Name: Last Man On The Ground
WINDS ARE DOWN, NOW IS OUR CHANCE
CAN’T WAIT NO MORE, ENGAGE ENGAGE
YOUR OXYGEN WILL START TO FLOW
BREATH SLOW, BREATH SLOW

CAN’T TURN BACK YOU’RE ON YOUR OWN
CLOSE TO NOWHERE AND FAR FROM HOME
TEN THOUSAND TRILLION MILES TO GO
654321

EVERYONE IS LEAVING
TAKING ALL THEY CAN
CAN’T TAKE EIFFEL TOWER
CAN’T BRING PARIS FRANCE
I WAS NOT THE FIRST MAN
TO SEE IT ALL GO DOWN
BUT I’LL BE THE LAST
THE LAST MAN ON THE GROUND

DON’T LOOK DOWN, ALL EYES OUT FRONT
YOUR HEART IS FAST, YOUR BREATH IS SHORT
DON’T LOOK DOWN...

EVERYONE IS LEAVING
TAKING ALL THEY CAN
CAN’T TAKE EIFFEL TOWER
CAN’T BRING PARIS FRANCE
I WAS NOT THE FIRST MAN
TO SEE IT ALL GO DOWN
BUT I’LL BE THE LAST
MAN ON THE GROUND...
Track Name: Phantom Limb
THEY’LL BE COMING FOR ME IN THE SUMMER OR SPRING
I BEEN HAVING A DREAM AND I KNOW WHAT IT MEANS

DID YOU SEE WHAT I SAW, DID YOU FEEL WHAT I FELT
HOW CAN YOU BE SO SURE
I’VE BEEN HAVING A DREAM AND I KNOW WHAT IT’S FOR

ANYTHING YOU LIKE, I AM HERE TO PLEASE
ANYTHING YOU LIKE, I’ll GET ON MY KNEES

STAND AND DEFEND YOUR WHOLE WORLD OF PRETEND

IT’S OUR MOMENT IN TIME, I CAN’T GET OFF MY MIND
I’VE BEEN HAVING A DREAM, WHERE I THOUGH YOU WERE MINE

ANYTHING YOU LIKE, I AM HERE TO PLEASE
ANYTHING YOU LIKE, I’ll GET ON MY KNEES
ANYTHING YOU LIKE
Track Name: Betty Song
SOMEONE’S TALKING AND I CAN’T HEAR A THING
WORDS ARE FALLING BREAKING EVERYTHING
WHO WILL SAVE US FROM OURSELVES TONIGHT

LISTEN BETTY THAT’S NO WAY TO LIVE
HOLD ME CLOSER I’VE GOT MORE TO GIVE
ON UNSTEADY GROUND YOU MAKE YOUR MOVE
OH SWEET BETTY HOW YOU BREAK THE RULES
WHO WILL SAVE US FROM OURSELVES TONIGHT

IT WAS GETTING SO COLD, IT WAS ALREADY LATE
HOLDING OUT FOR A CRUMB AND MY HAND STARTED SHAKING
I WAS DOWN ON MY KNEES, I WAS TURNING INSIDE
RUNNING LOW ON BELIEF AND WE’RE ALL OUT OF WINE
WE HAVE TAKEN A TURN, WE HAVE FALLEN BEHIND
ALL THE SIRENS ARE GONE AND THIS SILENCE IS SO LOUD
BETTY OPEN YOUR HEART THERE IS NO NEED TO FIGHT
SAVE YOURSELF TONIGHT
