The Talking Leaves

Sequoia's winters were sixteen silent tongue spirit clean
He walked at his father's side
Across the smoking battle ground where red and white men lay all around
So many here had died
The wind had scattered around snow white leaves upon the ground
Not leaves like leaves from trees
Sequoia said what can this be what's the strange thing here I see
From where come leaves like these
Sequoia turned to his father's eyes and he said father you're wise
From where come such snow white leaves
With such strange marks upon these squares
Not even the wise owl could put them there
So strange these snow white leaves
His father shielding his concern resenting the knowledge Sequoia yearned
Crumbled the snow white leaves
He said when I explain then it's done these are talking leaves my son
The white men's talking leaves
The white man takes a berry of black and red
And an eagle's feather from the eagle's bed
And he makes bird track marks
And the marks on the leaves they say carry messages to his brother far away
And his brother knows what's in his heart
They see these marks and they understand the truth in the heart of the far off man
The enemies can't hear them
Said Sequoia's father son they weave bad medicine on these talking leaves
Leave such things to them
Then Sequoia walking lightly followed his father quietly but so amazed was he
If the white man talks on leaves why not the Cherokee
Vanished from his father's face Sequoia went from place to place
But he could not forget
Year after year he worked on and on till finally he cut into stone
The Cherokee alphabet
Sequoia's hair by now was white his eyes began to lose their light
But he taught all who would believe
That the Indian's thoughts could be written down
Just as the white men's there on the ground and he left us these talking leaves

Gunfire at Midnight

They walk the streets
Late at night
They don't know nothin'
'Bout what's wrong or right
They're after me
They're after you
I can't help wonderin'
What I'm gonna do
If they catch me
Whoa, and there ain't nowhere to run
Chorus:
Gunfire at midnight
Shots ring out through the streets
Breakin' glass in the back alley ways
You don't dare to look and see
Who's firin' at midnight
Whoa, fear is in command
Every shadow reveals the sheen of a blade
You don't dare to make a stand
An empty street
Under the moon
Walkin' quickly
So I'll get home soon
The sound of foot-steps
Not far behind
Could be them
Or a friend of mine
Keep a light in the window
Whoa, and a lock upon the door
Don't get a gun
It won't kill your fear
'Cause if you show it
Ten more appear
A show of violence
Will get back to you
From what I've seen
I believe it to be true
If I see blood in the gutter
Whoa, I'll pray that it ain't yours
 

Symphony

[Verse 1]
I’ve been hearing symphonies
Before all I heard was silence
A rhapsody for you and me
And every melody is timeless
Life was stringing me along
Then you came and you cut me loose
Was solo singing on my own
Now I can’t find a key without you

[Pre-Chorus]
And now your song is on repeat
And I’m dancin' on to your heartbeat
And when you’re gone, I feel incomplete
So if you want the truth

[Chorus]
I just wanna be part of your symphony
Will you hold me tight and not let go?
Symphony
Like a love song on the radio
Will you hold me tight and not let go?

[Verse 2]
I’m sorry if it’s all too much
Every day you’re here I’m healing
And I was runnin' out of luck
I never thought I’d find this feeling
'Cause I’ve been hearing symphonies
Before all I heard was silence
A rhapsody for you and me
(A rhapsody for you and me)
And every melody is timeless

[Pre-Chorus]
And now your song is on repeat
And I’m dancin' on to your heartbeat
And when you’re gone, I feel incomplete
So if you want the truth

[Chorus]
I just wanna be part of your symphony
Will you hold me tight and not let go?
Symphony
Like a love song on the radio
Will you hold me tight and not let go?

[Interlude]
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah ah, ah

[Pre-Chorus]
And now your song is on repeat
And I’m dancin' on to your heartbeat
And when you’re gone, I feel incomplete
So if you want the truth

[Chorus]
I just wanna be part of your symphony
Will you hold me tight and not let go?
Symphony
Like a love song on the radio
Symphony
Will you hold me tight and not let go?
Symphony
Like a love song on the radio
Will you hold me tight and not let go?

I Like America & America Likes Me

[Intro]
I'm scared of dying
Is that on fire?
Am I a liar? Ooh
(I can't be quiet)
I'm scared of dying
No gun required, ooh
My skin is fire, so desired
 
[Verse 1]
Is that designer?
Is that on fire?
Am I a liar?
Oh, will this help me lay down?
My skin is fire, it’s so desired!
No gun required!
Oh, will this help me lay down?
I’m scared of dying, it’s fine
Oh, what’s a fiver?
Being young in the city
Believe, and say something
 
[Chorus]
Would you please listen!
Would you please listen!
We can see it's missing
When you bleed say so we know
Being young in the city
Believe, and say something
 
Would you please listen!
Would you please listen!
We can see it's missing
When you bleed say so, we know
 
[Verse 1]
Council, being listed
Man I kinda miss it, hey!
I’m a designer, unite pariahs
Am I a liar?
Oh, will this help me lay down?
Kids don’t want rifles, they want Supreme
No gun required!
Oh, will this help me lay down?
We're scared of dying, it's fine
What's a fiver?
Being young in the city
Believe, and say something
 
[Chorus]
Would you please listen?
Would you please listen?
We can see it's missing
When you bleed say so, we know
Being young in the city
Believe, and say something
 
[Bridge]
Don't have to say that
It's on fire
And where am I?
So let me, let me lie down
My skin is fire, it's so desired
No gun required
Oh, will it help me lay down?
 
[Outro]
I'm scared of dying
It's fine
Oh, what's a fiver?
Being young in in the city
Believe, and say something
And say something
And say something
 

Alone

Oh oh oh oooh, oh oh oh oooh
Take the weight off my shoulders
See, I won't make the same mistakes when we're older
'Cause with every step you take I'm getting colder
So come a little closer, just come a little closer
 
I don't want somebody else to call my name
No, I don't want somebody else when you could just say
 
Say that you're the one who's taking me home
'Cause I want you on my skin and my bones
Knocking me off my feet
Just say I'm the one that you need (oh, please)
Say that you're the one who's taking me home
So I can get you alone
Oh oh oh oooh, oh oh oh oooh
Oh oh oh oooh, oh oh oh oooh
 
Just wanna talk a little longer
So baby won't you wanna stay a little later?
'Cause I could watch you watch me forever
'Cause I know you better
And you know I never
 
I never need somebody else to call my name
No, I don't want somebody else when you could just say
 
Say that you're the one who's taking me home
'Cause I want you on my skin and my bones
Knocking me off my feet
Just say I'm the one that you need (oh, please)
Say that you're the one who's taking me home
So I can get you alone
Oh oh oh oooh, oh oh oh oooh
Oh oh oh oooh, oh oh oh oooh
 
I don't need somebody else to call my name
No, I don't need somebody else to make me stay
I don't never need to walk away
You could just say, you could just say
 
Say that you're the one who's taking me home (me home)
'Cause I want you on my skin and my bones (my bones)
Knocking me off my feet
Just say I'm the one that you need (oh, please)
Say that you're the one who's taking me home
So I can get you alone
Oh oh oh oooh
Alone (can get you, can get you)
Oh oh oh oooh
Alone (can get you, can get you)
Oh oh oh oooh
So I can get you alone
