Track Name: Blue Sky Believer
Don't bite your tongue
Our hearts are young
And we could fly forever
Through my cerulean sky
We can sever ties to everything we left behind
Heard what goes up must then come down
Well here am I, ten-thousand feet above the ground
Because whenever I surrender to the sound

I'm nothing but a blue sky believer
Those soaring, climbing, death-defying heights will come to carry me away
Far from the fears and the world down below
So off into this whirlwind I go

Don't second guess this perfect mess
Let's go get lost together
Inside your waterfall mind
To your depths I'd dive
Again and again and again
We'll get our heads stuck in the clouds
Untethered lives
Imagination with no bounds
Because whenever I surrender to the sound

I'm nothing but a blue sky believer
Those soaring, climbing, death-defying heights will come to carry me away
Far from the fears and the world down below
So off into this whirlwind I go

Don't bite your tongue
Our hearts are young
Don't leave our melody unsung
Oh no

Nothing but a blue sky believer
Those soaring, climbing, death-defying heights will come to carry me away
Far from the fears and the world down below
So off into this whirlwind I go

Twisting, turning
Our spirits intertwined
Sweet surrender
Our whirlwind to the sky
Track Name: Cannonball
Have you heard the latest?
Guess they're on to me
Fiction, fact, the judgement's passed
Trajectory complete

A game of reputation
Word of mouth to feed
Who made you the justice gun
The judge and the jury?

Words on the attack
The cannonballs you fire

Keep on loading barrels
You're safe inside the boat
'Til your name is the skull they paint
Upon the ol' crossbones

Words on the attack
The cannonballs you fire
Light the fuse and laugh
And watch 'em fall into the sea below
I wanted to be friends not foes

Eye for eye
Knocked out my teeth
It's the not the way that it's gotta be

Words on the attack
The cannonballs you fire
Light the fuse and laugh
And watch 'em falling over
Why are you words on the attack?
The cannonballs you fire
Light the fuse and laugh
And watch 'em fall into the sea below
I wanted to be friends not foes
But you just like the smell of smoke
Track Name: Manic Pixie Dream Girl
Sugar-coated kiss of perfection
Candy apple bite
Twenty-four sweet frames per second
Brought me back to life
The heavenly debut
My love song muse
Come down to rescue me

Oh, manic pixie dream girl
Work your magic into me
I'm lost and hopeless without you
Must I check back in to hotel reality?
'Cause I could live forever in this land of make believe

May not be a prince but I am charming
And I am no scientist but our chemistry is alarming
And I think I'd be okay
If the credits never played
You are my destiny

Oh, manic pixie dream girl
Work your magic into me
I'm lost and hopeless without you
Must I check back in to hotel reality?
'Cause I could live forever in this land of make believe

Oh, I thought you were an angel
My angel
An effervescent light sent from heaven
Effortlessly bright
And you're shining down on me
Oh, then why are we still strangers?
Just strangers
I've only got the best of intentions
And you'll be my romantic redemption
What do you mean?
The story's not only about me?

Oh, manic pixie dream girl
Work your magic into me
I'm lost and hopeless without you
Must I check back in to hotel reality?
'Cause I could live forever in this land of make believe
Track Name: Danger Island
It's do or die
It's now or never
Sharpen up your sword and pull yourself together
There's more to life than killing time
Hanging from the gallows to our fates resigned

Just another lost boy's story
Foolish mind or heart of gold
Pour yourself a glass half empty
I refuse to give up hope

I'm down for something dangerous
Past the point of no return
So lock it and load
Baby, are you down for something dangerous?
The serpent of the sea will threaten to swallow us whole
I'd rather risk it all than never know

Don't be so quick to pick your poison
Disenchanted voices of a thousand boys and girls
Who took a sip of compromise
Now safe and soundly sinking to their own demise

Just another lost boy's story
Foolish mind or heart of gold
Pour yourself a glass half empty
I refuse to give up hope

I'm down for something dangerous
I'm down for something dangerous

I'm down for something dangerous
Past the point of no return
So lock it and load
Baby, are you down for something dangerous?
The serpent of the sea will threaten to swallow us whole
I'd rather risk it all than never know

Danger island
Other side of the sea
There is no going back
To who you used to be
Haunted shadows
You have no hold on me anymore
I'd rather die than watch my dreams all decompose
To lost, forgotten bones

Come pursue life with reckless abandon
And throw your overthinking overboard
Break the rules of inertia
What harm's it gonna do ya?
Discover the unknown
Down for something dangerous
Track Name: At Journey's End
Tied up to the dock
I'd been waiting for a clearer sign
Why wrestle the turbulent waters
With no end in sight?
I called out to you
As mortal men do
To hear your lullabies
And heard but the wind
So subtly sing
Something along the lines of

Fix your eyes upon the horizon
And let your soul feel it beckon
Treasure, I reckon
Somewhere at journey's end

Setting sun
The siren serenades
Come to me
Your voyage is in vain
I felt it creeping in
Hopeless abyss of sin
Oh, where are you now?
The wind in my sails
The song of my prayers
The strength needed to prevail

Fix your eyes upon the horizon
And let your soul feel it beckon
Treasure, I reckon
Somewhere at journey's end

Heroes, lovers
Melodious wonders
All exhaled as ocean breeze
Sail the seas
But know your reason
Why?

Fix your eyes upon the horizon
And let your soul feel it beckon
Treasure, I reckon
Somewhere at journey's end
Set sail
