Track Name: Leilani Heights
I was flying high on Leilani Heights
Just a boy of 4 in 1985
I could feel the day underneath the shade
I can almost taste the sweet and summer lemonade.

Racing up the road, me and Joey Sloan
When our rubber souls could hit the open road
Long before the war fought in '94
underneath the roof I came to call my troubled home

Atop the mountain of the thistles
chris came tumbling terrified
we could hear his father whistle
I could see his spirit die
on Leighlani Heights

In the month of May
We were hard at play
Just my memory and a boy that won’t be named
Came the pick-up truck
I was paralyzed
I can almost hear the lights of red and blue that night

Death had told me all the secrets
No young boy should ever hear
I recall the devil trembling
when I woke to mommas tears
we lived that year

Wait a minute...

I'm going back
I'm running...

We are renegades
we have all escaped
From the memories of our fear and joy and shame
I’m running back
I’m a going home
I will go into the death to come alive
Would you go with me back to leighlani heights?
