Meet the 5 members of band:

Erin Procter, a sweet little musical child, plays a 1960s Rheem Mark VII Organ, Bass, and Sings Back-Up Vocals. She’s a CCM graduate who’s full of raw, mother lovin’ natural talent.
Eric Bingham, a guitar playing melody maker, started playing music as a kid with his country western grandpa, and never stopped.
Jason Hounshell, a pop-beat driven drummer, best-kept secret in town, but he’ll never open his mouth to tell you so.
Ross Dolan, a fine, hard workin’ guitar player. They say he’s lookin’ to duel with the devil one of these days.
Baby Strange, a soulful little lead singer with a mighty big voice who writes all her own lyrics.

Leopard Messiah believes times are changing, for better or worse, they want to be along for the ride.

Lyrics

Alternating Ways

Written By: Baby Strange

I will not hear what I keep to myself
I will not think for just anybody else
Fall in your own quicksand, you'll be sinking fast
There's only one boy who can keep me out of my head

Don't have to tell you that you been on my mind
When you around my way we have a real nice time

I neeeeed you baby

And somehow still I do, I do
But we been wrongin' the whole way through
Nomatter all I see is the right in you
And it's much better because I do, I do
There's only one boy who can keep me by his side
Don't wanna stop now baby keep on gettin' high

I need you baby, like the power from the sun
Don't wanna stop now baby, keep on reachin up
The tides are calming, but I cannot stand still
Electric forces me in alternating ways
the sun is setting, but my day has just begun
we might be wrong but boy it. feels. so. right. with. you.

I neeeeed you baby

From My Heart

Written By: Baby Strange

Come and see what you're all about
Glowin' in glory and yellow in doubt
No heart to show in the face of a lie
And in the end you're gonna cry

So grow up and head for the hills
You might be tall but your spreading for miles
Beautiful world show you everything
Hearing the lessons but your not listening
And what goes up it will go round
Spin it too all to fast and you might fall down
Child listen close to what I say
The world will get you
Run away, run away, run away

Run run run run run away
Run run run run run away
From my heart

Sail you away in an old wooden shoe
Go to the ocean black and blue
Bask in the cup of my magical tea
I bring you down to your knee
I hear the thunder crashing on your mind
I turn away 'cause boy never did cry
Child listen close to what I say
The world will get you
Run away, run away, run away

Run run run run run away
Run run run run run away
While you can

Blue bird will come, the blue bird will go
Season will change, the sky will snow
Faces will age and minds will grow
I'll turn away, boy I never did know
The day goes by and your wasting fast
Loosing your mind in fading in time
Child listen close to what I say
The world will get you
Run away, run away, run away

Run run run run run away
Run run run run run away
From my heart

Run away o run away, while you can
Run away o run away, to the hills
Run away o run away, don't look back
Run away o run away, send my love
Run away o run away, please be gone
Run away o run away, from my heart
Run away o run away, beat go on
Run away o run away, send my love

Grave Digger

Written By: Baby Strange

What's the time, never had none
Since you left, all night long
Hurry back, I didn't follow
What you said, in the hollow
Of your heart, can I borrow
All your love, until tomorrow
Give it back, if you swallow,
All your pride, and your sorrow

I looked around at my life, and it was me who was standing outside
Years I'd been digging a grave, I buried everything I couldn't hide

Didn't dream, followed yours man
Checked my heart for abandon
Give me back what you took man
It's my fault, I'm forgetting
I was there at the right time
Lost my ground, I took the wrong fight
Nothing wrong, it was all me
Build me up, then I let go

I looked around at my life, and it was me who was standing outside
I couldn't see through the pride, given up on my own given right

Grave digger, grave digger, digging a grave
Grave digger, grave digger, couldn't be saved
Grave digger, grave digger, digging a grave
Grave digger, grave digger, it was too late

It ain't right to forget you
I'm still here, but I ain't home
Walked away on my own ground
Then I look right beside me
There you stood, you never left me
Hold me tight, cause you love me
Bring me back, your the only one I know that can save me

So I thought that I lost my way, but you had always been there as my guide
What more could I ask for in life, I live in dreams standing here by your side
By your side
