Track Name: Half Lit Light
Into the half light we must go softly
Into the half light we must go slowly
Into the half lit light

Into the crossfire we must go quickly
Take me by the hand and quickly kiss me
Into the crossfire

It doesn't matter that we didn't see it coming
What really matters is it didn't stop us running
Into the crossfire

Well you told me that we would find the answers
Well we found them but we forgot the questions
We were blinded by the half lit light
Caught in the crossfire

Whisper to me softly do you hear what I'm thinking
I've got that feeling and it isn't sinking
Down, down down down

Shout to me now, I'm over in the corner
You're getting colder, now warmer and warmer
And closer and closer and closer and closer to me
Closer and closer and closer and closer to me
We're blinded by the half light light
Caught in the crossfire
Caught in the crossfire
Track Name: Girl In The Trees
She's got flies, in her eyes
The shackles on her ankles weigh her down
And the truth is she doesn't need the proof
She needs a reason
She's like the wind, and she rescinds
Promises she never even made
And the candle that she lit is burned out
And so is she

He doesn't see her
He doesn't see her through the trees
She's drinking her beer
She's drowning her fear, she's on her knees

She wasn't lost, she wasn't found
She never really even made a sound
But the things that she said she really meant
To the bitter end
Now we see her, through the trees
She wasn't really hiding there at all
The truth is she wanted to be small
And invisible

Now we can see her
Now we can see her through the trees
She's drinking her beer
She's so full of cheer, she's on her knees
Track Name: Let's Go Round
Come on, let's go out the lines
When we colour in this picture of our times
It wasn't meant to be black and white
We only pencilled in the ending

So let's go round again
Until we don't know who we are from them
Oh let's go round until the circle breaks right down
Let's go round again

You thought the choice was yours to choose
That we were born to win and not to lose
But when you saw it wasn't like that
You saw every pretty colour in the rainbow

So let's go round again
Until we don't know who we are from them
Oh let's go round until the circle breaks right down
Let's go round again

Oh let's go round
Oh let's go round
Oh let's go round
Again

Here, here we are
Standing on the edge of the world
We see the land and we see the sea
And we can see the whole of eternity
Yes here, here we are
Standing on the edge of the world
I see the land and I see the sea
Still nothing seems to make much sense to me

So let's go round again
Until we don't know who we are from them
Oh let's go round until the circle breaks right down
Let's go round again
Track Name: The Night Of The Hunter
Bird of song, and bird of prey
One's a singer, one's a hunter
Doesn't matter which one's which
As one hunts the other sings

They fly together day and night
Build their nest from broken branches
Sit on the wire looking down
And as one hunts, the other sings

As the hunter makes its kill
And starts to tear it apart
The singing bird sings another song
And the hunter sings along

It's the night of the hunter
But still she sings
It's the night of the hunter
But still she sings
It's the night of the hunter
But still she sings
It's the night

It's the night of the hunter
But still she sings
