Track Name: Island (Album Version)
The ground will open up
Walk inside it
The beauty filled me up
You can’t deny it
We drive the open road like we own it
Oh, we’re on the run
Oh, what we’ve become

Where the cold wind blows
There’s some thing in the light upon the snow
There’s beauty in the way that midnight glows
Another universe you’ve always known
I’m suddenly aware we’re all alone
So far away but it feels like home
Where the cold wind blows

We walk the narrow streets
In the half light
We sway to broken beats breaking midnight
We drive the open road
Hold the wheel tight
Oh, we’re on the run
Oh, what we’ve become

I can feel it in my soul
In the infancy of all
There is room to breathe in all this light
We can see the birth of time
As the continents collide
And it shakes the ground of the only life I’ve known
We’re on the run
What we’ve become
Track Name: Bring On The Dancing Horses
Jimmy Brown
Made of stone
Charlie Clown
No way home
Bring on the dancing horses
Headless and all alone

Shiver and say the words
Of every lie you've heard

First I'm gonna make it
Then I'm gonna break it
Till it falls apart
Hating all the faking
And shaking while I'm breaking
Your brittle heart

Billy stands
All alone
Sinking sand
Skin and bone
Bring on the dancing horses
Wherever they may roam

Shiver and say the words
Of every lie you've heard

First I'm gonna make it
Then I'm gonna break it
Till it falls apart
Hating all the faking
And shaking while I'm breaking
Your brittle heart

Brittle heart
Brittle heart
Brittle heart
And my little heart
Goes

Jimmy Brown
Made of stone
Charlie Clown
No way home

Bring on the headless horses
Wherever they may roam
Shiver and say the words
Of every lie you've heard

First I'm gonna make it
Then I'm gonna break it
Till it falls apart
Hating all the faking
And shaking while you're breaking
My brittle heart
Brittle heart
Brittle heart
And our little heart
Goes

Bring on the new messiah
Wherever he may roam
Track Name: Stare
I see you lying there
Light skin and light brown hair
And under the eye lids
Blue eyes exist there
With nothing but melting stares

So why don't you wake up
Don't put on your makeup
I'd touch you like this for so so long
For so so long

Nothing can wear me down
Blue sky now wears a crown
And under my thick skin
The darkness when I've been down
Has nothing to do but drown
Track Name: Blackbird Spies (Stripmall Architecture Mix)
You can’t say a thing, they won’t let you speak
Only offer a smile or the curtain gets weak
And you can’t say a word to the family back home
Better pull back that stick because you’re coming in low

And oh, you’ll fly
Through a clear and endless sky
But all you’ll find is a cold and lonely life
The cold and lonely lives of blackbird spies

You can’t see a thing in the valley below
Not a soul on the ground, not a footprint in snow
There’s a radio call bring your baby back home
Give a wave with the wings as you’re coming in low

You’re so high there’s just sky to see
A thin blue line of fantasy
Down below we hold you in our dreams
You’re so high there’s no time to fear
In a thin blue line of atmosphere
Down below we hold you in our dreams
Though a vapor trail is all we’ll ever see

And oh, you’ll fly
Through a clear and endless sky
But all you’ll find is a cold and lonely life
The cold and lonely lives of blackbird spies
Track Name: Island (Opencloud Mix)
The ground will open up

There’s some thing in the light upon the snow
There’s beauty in the way that midnight glows
Another universe you’ve always known
I’m suddenly aware we’re all alone
So far away but it feels like home
Where the cold wind blows

We sway to broken beats breaking midnight

Hold the wheel tight
Oh, we’re on the run
Oh, what we’ve become

There is room to breathe in all this light
We can see the birth of time
As the continents collide
And it shakes the ground of the only life I’ve known
We’re on the run

Track Name: Island (Tolt Mix)
The ground will open up
Walk inside it
The beauty filled me up
You can’t deny it
We drive the open road like we own it
Oh, we’re on the run
Oh, what we’ve become

Where the cold wind blows
