Track Name: Flesh Wound (DEMO)
Like a martyr with a flesh wound
You just need somewhere to rest
But you laid right down and died
Yea you laid right there and died
Now the public's got their eyes on your beloved
You saw it coming
You saw it coming
Like a stone without a slingshot
You were left out on your own
But you wouldn't compromise
No you wouldn't compromise
Now the public's got their eyes on your beloved
You saw it coming
You saw it coming
Track Name: Porcelain (DEMO)
We were told we were just made of porcelain
We were told we should just stay inside
Then removed from the back-lit
Glass cabinet
And thrown right into the fire
We were young/Life was heavy
We only believed
In the power of love
We gathered our lives from the ashes
Save for the humiliation
Disenchantment set in
Like a lump in our throats
With no room for reconciliation
No longer young
Life's still heavy
Lost the power of love
Along the way
When we were young
We were so fragile
Naive enough to believe
In the power of love
Track Name: Back Home (DEMO)
Back to my old stomping grounds
Been a while since I've been around
Everyone's still singing the same tune
Excuses for staying poor
I moved out from right next door
It'll be five years ago this June
Never thought I'd be back home
Only home I've ever known
Guess it isn't home to me no more
So what's the sense in catching up
You live the life your father loved
You swore you'd leave so many times before
Back Home Again
Back Home Again
Back Home Again
Back Home Again
Track Name: Fast Asleep (DEMO)
I took my love
Down by the river
I laid it out
And told her I forgive her
I took my heart
Down by the ocean
Emotionless
Just going through the motions
We're so naïve
We're so naïve
I took my life
Living in the city
The ground flies up
Then suddenly it hits me
I'll take my time
They told me that they'd miss me
I drank the wine
Turned the water into whiskey
We're so naïve
We're so naïve
We're so naïve
We're fast asleep
You believe in the sincerity of words
Like a child who's just inherited the earth.
Track Name: Wild Beating Heart (DEMO)
Raised inside a matchbox I saw just what I was supposed to see
Then one day I stepped out and suddenly it just occurred to me
Light?
Humans are like goldfish only shaped a little differently
You know the sphere of influence determines what we grow to be
Right?
So Fly
Fly me
Fly me far away
From here
In an age where strangers rarely sing together we could be a band
But you don't want to know my name and you don't want to hold my hand
Why?
You would kill for anything and you would die for nothing now
Maybe we should start again and try to turn it all around
Fight?
So Fly
Fly me
Fly me far away
From here
This wild beating heart was never free
This wild beating heart belongs to me
This wild beating heart was never free
Belong to me/It belongs to me
So Fly
Fly me
Fly me far away
From here
Track Name: Look Inside, It's Snowing (DEMO)
I'm an angel in the snow
A disproportionate contortion
Of the man that you used to know
However bright and vibrant
Silent snow devoid of violence
Is as violent as we could ever know
Sweet snow
We know
Sweet snow
Please go
You're a stranger on the prowl
On the periphery of missing me
We're watching snow gather on the ground
However sweet and vibrant
Silent snow devoid of violence
Is as violent as we could ever know
Sweet snow
We know
Sweet snow
We know
It's a blanket to cover the ugly truth
That true winter lives inside me and you
It's a blanket to cover the ugly truth
That true winter lives inside me and you
Track Name: Maps (DEMO)
A map of the stars had been carved in our hearts
We laid it out under the tree
And subtly she said like a brick to the head
No one hates me quite like me
We ran
We ran
Til we couldn't breathe
We buried the map with the knives in our backs
Our thoughts were designed to deceive
Though crippled she spoke like a beacon of hope
In the end we just want to believe
We swam
We swam
Into the sea
We searched for reprieve from the secrets we keep
We ended up back on the shore
As many might find in a matter of time
The shadows we bottled were yours
Bury them deep
Bury them deep
With me
If only we sung with the fire in our lungs
We could do something different for once
We might do something different for once
Track Name: Gaudenzia (DEMO)
How long had I spent under sterile white lights
It was summer I went in and stayed overnight
They took out my teeth and replaced them with crayons
And told me to draw what I saw in the clouds
We can sing we can sing
We can sing all the time
We were bodies of water
We were turning to wine
There was a thirst in your voice
When the elephants arrived
And the room filled your eyes
With nothing
The sun and it's shadows just stared at the ground
I was screaming out loud without making a sound
The walls were unnerving and the ceilings were the same
The nurses were nervously circling the drain
We can sing we can sing
We can sing all the time
We were bodies of water
We were turning to wine
There was a thirst in your voice
When the elephants arrived
And the room filled your eyes
With nothing
I ran fast as I could from the edge of the town
To the spot where the blue sky had crashed to the ground
The green green grass always seems to go last
After leaves turn to fire and the sky turns to ash
Now we sing and we sing
We sing every day
We are bodies of water
We are making our way
The path of least resistance
will no longer suffice
We're the river that flows
Up the mountain
We're the river that flows
Up the mountain
We're the river that flows
Up the mountain
Up the mountain
Up the mountain
Track Name: Midstate (DEMO)
A man who's made of stone stands alone
A man who's made of wood still stood still alone
A man who's made of sand
Is slipping through the hands
Of the man who's made of flesh and bone
This road can take us anywhere but home
Baby we can leave this place if we want to
Maybe we can even stay if we don't
Maybe we can breathe in place of impromptu
Conversations set in stone
Maybe if this house just burns down quickly
Maybe we can hide out underground
Maybe if this stopwatch wasn't choking
Fear of failure don't fail me now
Fear of failure don't fail me now
This road can take us anywhere but home
Baby we can leave this place if we want to
Maybe we can even stay if we
Don't
Track Name: Mountains (DEMO)
You were violent like the rest
And as the day progressed
You sunk your arms
Deep into my chest
My heart was still at last
My lungs were filled with glass
My stomach tied like
A noose that held my past
A storm rose out of you
You could carry me
Or bury me
Alive
The choice is up to you
You stole the anchor from my bones
I floated far from home
The mountains took me in
And carved me out of stone
With no fear of reproach
My shadow held a rope
The sun might gleam
Upon our long lost dream of hope
But a storm rose out of you
You could carry me
Or bury me
Alive
The choice is up to you
The choice is up to you
The choice is up to you
Track Name: Nobodies Home (DEMO)
I'm not at home
Please take your hands off me I can breathe fine on my own
Give me away
This gut-wrenching silence you can't hide behind it today
I'm not afraid
I traded my cash in for ashes it all blew away
Leave me my name
The mistakes that I make are the monsters that take all the blame
Track Name: Dreaming In Realtime (DEMO)
Open eyes are on the sun
Feed the fire you've become
Open eyes are on the sun
Feed the fire you've become
Am I dreaming again
Am I dreaming again
Am I dreaming again
Am I dreaming again
Tragedy was met with love
First the fire then the flood
Tragedy was met with love
First the fire then the flood
Cliffs have promised nothing less
You your worst and them their best
Cliffs have promised nothing less
You your worst and them their best
Only mountains ever yield
To the rivers and the fields
Only mountains ever yield
To the rivers and the fields
Oh the dream is on the rise
Oh the dream is on the rise
Oh the dream is on the rise
Oh the dream is on the rise
Track Name: Mantra (DEMO)
All heroes are villains
All Bobs are not Dylans
All monsters are mentors
And mentors are fill-ins
For fathers or fixtures
Like lampshades and pictures
That sit there till we become
One of them too
Track Name: Severed Reverence
Not my job
