Track Name: The Stranger's Waltz
We walked along the paper street and sang to the moon
And stood beneath a billboard saying see you soon
To dance I wore my favourite iridescent shoes
And sold my winter coat for a banjo and the blues

Your dulcet tone and tenor told me tremble dear
You think you’re close to something but you’re not that near
The bed in which you sleep is not safe when you dream
And all the things you love are never what they seem

All the golden coins the callers gave to me
They vanished as the daytime caused the dark to flee
And all the silver starlight that lit up my way
It faded as the sun came up, turned silver into grey

One thousand paper cranes I loosed upon the waves
They sank beneath the surface to their watery graves
All the wishes that I made on falling flame
They burned themselves out long before I made my claim

All the golden coins the callers gave to me
They vanished as the daytime caused the dark to flee
And all the silver starlight that lit up my way
It faded as the sun came up, turned silver into grey

All the golden coins the callers gave to me
(We walked along a paper street and sang to the moon)
They vanished as the daytime caused the dark to flee
(You think you're close to something but your not that near)
And all the silver starlight that lit up my way
(To dance I wore my favourite iridescent shoes)
It faded as the sun came up, turned silver into grey
(And all the things you love are never what they seem)
Track Name: War Paint
I broke the dawn
It shattered in my hands
All the shards
Fell to the sand

And there you stood
With your painted face
Your feathered feet
Your fragile grace

There’s grazes on your knees
You never could see the wood for the trees
But now you hear her begging please
Please
Come home

You’re dancing out
Over the ocean
Stars appear where your feet fall

Your see through skin
Your shining bones
It’s hard to see them through the walls

There’s grazes on your knees
You never could see the wood for the trees
But you hear her begging please
Please
Come home

And there you stood
With your painted face
Your feathered feet
Your fragile grace

There’s grazes on your knees
You never could see the wood for the trees
But now you hear her begging please
Please
Come home
Track Name: Queen
Running out the back and you’re slamming the door
Bare feet on the grass spreading leaves on the floor
Oh oh
Headed for the sun and you fall out of trees
Burning up the driveway scrapes on your knees
Oh oh

And from all the paper cuts
Ran blood that was far bluer than the sea
And when you take my hand and pull me out
I remember what’s it’s like to be free

Dancing outside when it’s thundering rain
Lighting rattling the window panes
Oh oh
Bringing me back to the time long ago
When I lived outside my head and I could grow

Tamer of the savage beasts
And so much braver than I ever could be
You’re queen of all that you survey
And ruler of the youth that stayed in me
