  1. Landmines

Lyrics

There’s a gut reaction
whenever these stories start to swirl
But ‘round here it seems the rumors of war come from the other side of the world
Boys, if you wanna see some carnage
well you don’t have to go that far
One thing I’ve come to learn
You never know where the land mines are

These days we’re all live on the scene with them images of war
The newsroom got a man imbedded behind every bedroom door
Strange the things that you’ll call peace when you can’t take your foot off the charge
When the world gets quiet honey watch your step You never know where the land mines are

Hearts explode every day
We always knew there’d be a price we’d pay
Now making love’s like falling on a grenade
And we’re all tick-ticking away
‘Out of sight, out of mind’ is what you said when you buried it in the yard
But oh I bet the foot falls hard

It’s always our best intentions that cut the deepest wounds
Seems our best inventions
tend to spell somebody else’s doom
With all the crap we have these days
it shouldn’t have to be this hard
But if I were you I’d get the kids inside You never know where the land mines are

Hearts explode every day
Doesn’t mean it’s gotta be that way
You see, a mine field is no place to play
But then we’re all just ticking away
Out of sight, out of mind’ is what you said when you buried it in the yard
But oh I bet the foot falls hard

Yes I’ve seen some action
I’ve heard the lion roar
Tally marks all over my body
Well they’re just for keeping score
And I will tell you all about the tattoos
But you don’t get to ask about the scars Oh for now honey let’s just say
you never know where the land mines are

Hearts explode every day
Guess it’s always kinda been that way
But we were so sure that we could make it okay
But look we’re all still ticking away
‘Out of sight, out of mind’ is what we said when we buries it in the yard
But oh I bet the foot falls hard
