about

"Ghost In The City" is about knowing darkness can be a strength and accepting the fact that we all carry some, whether we are conscious of it or not. That horrifying thought to some, is my grace, as it brings us closer together.

I traveled all over Western New York to work with a bunch of amazing musicians as this music evolved over the last year. Some to just jam with as I learned where the songs were going. Every note from those sessions remain a part of me, floating in the rooms and neighborhoods they were played in. Hence the title "Ghost In The City".

If you had anything to do with The Leones in the past year whether it was listening to a song, coming to a show, playing with us, supporting us in our Kickstarter campaign, inviting us to play at your venue or home, or stopping at the sidewalk to listen while we played a song in our garage, we just wanted to say thank you. We consider all of you, family.

It's also about our love of horror movies and it's heroines.

-Justin

Track Name: Where I Want You
I took a walk, down by the water
I laid it down, I was looking for someone like you
(What was I supposed to do)

A heavy heat out on the corner,
You laid it down, but all I could do was fold
(I never knew you told)

Chorus:
And though this feeling's growing,
You have a funny way of showing,
You're not the same girl, Anne

Your days are getting stranger,
But you don't recognize the danger,
I've got you where I want you

Verse:
A heavy heat out on the corner
I laid it down, but all you could do was fold
(I never knew you told)

I took a walk, down by the water
And laid it down, I was looking for someone like you
(What was I supposed to do)

Chorus:
And though this feeling's growing
You have a funny way of showing
You're not the same girl, Anne

These days are getting stranger,
But you don't recognize the danger,
I've got you where I want you.
Track Name: Something's Rustlin'
Wind is blowin', tree limbs are falling down,
I can hear something's rustlin' out there and we're miles from town
Moon is lit up, sun is just a dream
Better get moving, if you know what I mean

Chorus:
There's no point in waiting, my heart is racing
Full moon is our only light
There's no way of knowing , which way we're going
But if we run now we could make it out alive

Verse:
The further we go, the less hopeful I am
There's glowing eyes in those bushes,
but I don't want to look back at them
There's a werewolf howling, looks like he's changed his skin
He's a growlin', and snarlin', his breathe stinks of bathtub gin

Chorus:
Run for your life from this terrible night,
I only thought that this happened in books
Was right behind you, and now I can't find you
I can hear it but I can't stand to look
Track Name: Eyes
There was a fire, and there was you, and it that fire was two
Down in the ocean, down through the waves, I've been lost at sea for days
I thought I saw you come up for air
But when I looked no one was there

Chorus:
And I don't need it everyday, I just watched it wash away
And sometimes people loose their mind, it happens all of the time

Verse:
There was a beacon, a lonely light, but it got shut by the night
Eyes in the lighthouse, eyes in the sea, I've been lost inside a dream
I thought I saw you come up for air, but when I looked no one was there

Chorus:
And I don't need it every day, I just watched you wash away
And sometimes people, loose their mind, it happens all of the time
Track Name: I'll Wait For You
I can feel this turning, into something good
If I could go back, you know I would

The moon is turning, you did your part
I can see things clearer, walking in the dark

I'll wait for you, I'll wait for you x4

Chrous:
And I can hear it calling, every now and then
Girl you've been running, for too long my friend

Verse:
a knife in the water, blood on the wall
I think I can hear him, coming down the hall
And baby I can feel you, then it's gone
We can't outrun this, now it won't be long

I'll wait for you, I'll wait for you x4

Chorus:
And I'm in the kitchen, feeling low
There's something creeping, don't leave me alone

Verse:
I can feel this turning, into something good
And if I could go back, you know I would
And baby I can feel you, then it's gone
We can't outrun this, now it won't be long

I'll wait for you, I'll wait for you x4
Track Name: Fire Walk With Me
When I go walking at night, and I go walking with you
When we go walking at night, fire walks with you

It's down in the garden, it's down in the roots
When we go walking at night, fire walks with you

It's in the shadows, it's in the trees
When I go walking at night, fire walks with me


There's blood in the water, there's blood in the salt
When we go walking at night fire walks with you

The sky is open, open wide
I thought I told you not to cry, to cry, to cry

It's in the shadows, it's in the trees
When I go walking at night, fire walks with me


It's down in the garden, it's down in the roots
When we go walking at night, fire walks with you

I heard he takes his time, until there's nothing left
Until it hits the ground and it rests, it rests, it rests

And by the fire, fire walk with her
I do not mind if it hurts, it hurts, it hurts
Track Name: Wolf (Outro)
I never wanted what you are, I never wanted to work that hard
The wolf is coming down the hall, I never wanted what you are

The water's rising with the tide, something's hiding in your mind
I never wanted what you are, the wolf is coming down the hall
