Track Name: Harm's Way
In one moment of hesitation and miscalculation, I got lost. Already exhausted alone without solace.

I’m just a romantic, to a crippling fault. All seems magic, there’s nothing to see at all.

My hands belong to a conquerer, my heart belongs to a wanderer, but my feelings lead me into harm’s way.
My mind belongs to a scholar, but my neck belongs in a collar. I’m wishing someone would pull me out of harm’s way.

I tried to follow the constellations back to civilization, rivers to cross, vultures to maul, nature is lawless
I can’t find anymore motivation than self-preservation. If I am condemned, if my life is ending, what good is pretending?

I’m just a romantic, to a crippling fault. All seems magic, when there’s nothing to see at all.

My hands belong to a conquerer, my heart belongs to a wanderer, but my feelings lead me into harm’s way.
My mind belongs to a scholar, but my neck belongs in a collar. I’m wishing someone would pull me out of harm’s way.

I can never stay out of harm’s way. I can never stay out of harm’s way. I can never stay out of harm’s way.

My hands belong to a conquerer, my heart belongs to a wanderer, but my feelings lead me into harm’s way.
My mind belongs to a scholar, but my neck belongs in a collar. I’m wishing someone would pull me out of harm’s way.
Track Name: In All Her Majesty
We didn’t speak ’til I pulled her from my pocket. Indiscreet, immediately I found her shocking.
I’m in a room full of noise my head is killing me. My senseless face is destroyed, up to my neck in debris.

All I need is to know she’s coming after me and all my pain is ecstasy. All she needs is to get me in her front seat, and drive ’til we find privacy.

In all her majesty, she opens up. In my stupidity called her bluff. In all her majesty, she spills her guts. My heart is beating like it never does.
In all her majesty, she sold me off in the morning. In all her majesty...

It took a week to return on my deposit, I’m cheek to cheek with the skeletons in her closet. I’m trapped in some kind of void I’d entered willingly.
I’ve lost a lil’ bit of joy that was still in me.

All I need is to know she’s coming after me and all my pain is ecstasy. All she needs is to get me in her front seat, and drive ’til we find privacy.

In all her majesty, she opens up. In my stupidity I called her bluff. In all her majesty, she spills her guts. My heart is beating like it never does.
In all her majesty, she sold me off in the morning. Oh what a tragedy, She sold me off without warning. In all her majesty...

In all her majesty, she opens up, ‘cause she spills her guts.
Track Name: Marquis Marq
Bundle up, buttercup, you’re my baby grand. Time to get street smart, sweetheart, time to get the upper hand.
A tummy punch, honey bunch, saw the TV, damn. Quick on the uptake, cupcake, get with the program.

When will you realize you don’t gotta be miserable, tonight we’re gunna fix this jam, tonight we’ll be mythical.
When will you realize you don’t gotta be miserable, tonight we’ve got a master plan, tonight we’re invincible.

Cut a rug, lady bug, this is your one chance. Aim for the throat, dreamboat, in the name of romance.
Get you some, little plump, give thanks it ain’t fenced. Forget the guilt trip, hot lips, it ain’t worth a second glance.

Prepare for adventure. We’ll milk the night for all she’s got. So sayeth the shepherd, so sayeth the flock.
Release all the pressure, ignore the ticking of the clock. The night is wide open, so take your shot.

When will you realize you don’t gotta be miserable, tonight we’re gunna fix this jam, tonight we’ll be mythical.
When will you realize you don’t gotta be miserable, tonight we’ve got a master plan, tonight we’re invincible.
It’s worth the extra effort, because tonight won't last forever.
Baby burst without your feathers. We gotta fly, fly and keep it together.

When will you realize you don’t gotta be miserable, tonight we’re gunna fix this jam, tonight we’ll be mythical.
When will you realize you don’t gotta be miserable, tonight we’re gunna fix this jam, tonight we’ll be mythical.
When will you realize you don’t gotta be miserable, tonight we’ve got a master plan, tonight we’re invincible.
When will you realize you don’t gotta be miserable, tonight we’ve got a master plan, tonight we’ve got a master plan.
Track Name: Nightvision
You’ve got a passive aggression, with a need to get loud. I’ve never seen you smile even once girl, and it’s creeping me out.

You’ve gotta shake, shake, shake me off, shake me off your shoes. You cannot be serious. How can you be serious?
When you shake, shake, shake, me off. What is your excuse? We used to be in love, now all you do is harsh my buzz.

If you wanna keep the covers on, hiding in the darkness on your own, I’ve opened up my eyes, I’ve got night vision for you.
And if you push back against the light, It’s gunna push you back to make it right. I’ve cut you down to size, I’ve got night vision for you.

I could be up in the clouds girl, but you’re bringing me down, bringing me down.
What could have been an early detection, was an easy way out, easy way out.

You’ve gotta shake, shake, shake me off, shake me off your shoes. You cannot be serious. How can you be serious?
When you shake, shake, shake, me off. What is your excuse? We used to be in love. We used to be in love!

If you wanna keep the covers on, hiding in the darkness on your own, I’ve opened up my eyes, I’ve got night vision for you.
And if you push back against the light, It’s gunna push you back to make it right. I’ve cut you down to size, I’ve got night vision for you.

I don’t know why you even try, all you do is push back the light.

Keep trying to shake me off, keep trying to set me up, keep trying to throw me out, you tried but I refuse.

What are you tryin’ to do?

If you wanna keep the covers on, hiding in the darkness on your own, I’ve opened up my eyes, I’ve got night vision for you.
And if you push back against the light, It’s gunna push you back to make it right. I’ve cut you down to size, I’ve got night vision for you.
