Track Name: End of Me (Demo)
By way of agitation, less than secret admiration
Some might find my dedication to be unwise
They say, "Take your time."
But your way of imagination
Such a passionate patience in your eyes
Medicating me on sight
I'm liquified
So set this pool on fire before you say goodbye
Tell me it's not time

Go, go, go, go
No, no, no, no
You're so, so slow to decide
When you leave here, then I'll be there
I'm not the lackluster kind
And I've made up my mind

Dig into the well
I've got my heart on my lapel
My pail is dry
Tears won't turn themselves to wine
Yet in my pail I cry
Why my feet won't carry me home

Go, go, go, go
No, no, no, no
You know no dose to prescribe
You will break and you will falter
A troubled snake in troubled water
I've been bitten blind
And I've made up my mind

Please don't mind me when you find me
Frozen, cracked and alone
Let me go, let me go, 'cause I can't let go

Melt me down

The end of you, the end of me
But in the end, where will we be?
A string of pearls, a string of graves
Just sing to me and I'll behave
Track Name: Clouds 1 thru 8 (Demo)
Your feet upon the ground
My eyes up in the clouds
Feet pull you from the place I want you to be right now
I'm begging for the clouds
Bring me swiftly, safe and sound
You're hiding from the rain
My eyes are raining down

Running anchors in the wall
Climbing down before you fall
Riding droplets through the wind
Wishing you would just stand tall
Oh, I pretend not to see
But I know why you run
I know why you run
I know why you run away from me
And I'd have to agree
Track Name: No Way to Know (Demo)
I'm walking away
I find I have nothing to say
I'm walking away
I live to back down another day
And when I say
Not much behind what I say, say...
C'est la vie
I'm walking away
I'll make you mine one at a time
One piece at a time

I got time to spare
I spare the time to take the time away
It's time you make a man out of me
I can only wait so long before your time is wasted on me

5 dollar crowns and your 4 dollar thrones
You got 3 in your stomach and 2 in your bones
There's just 1 way to tell
But there's no way to know what they're saying
So save all your money and spend all your time
On a cure for the rejects and a pill for the prime
All the numbers are fading
And so is the light from my eyes

After you go this is all a show
After you go
After you go this is all a show
After you go

I can choose the words
I word out what I want to say
The words are only words until they are heard
I can only wait so long before my words are wasted on
You look by me as I walk away

5 dollar coasters and 4 dollar beers
You got 3 on your lips plus the 2 in your ears
Only 1 way to go
But there's no way to know when it's here
Waiting for you
Track Name: High Horse (Demo)
Face the wall and think about what I have done
I pull my hood over my head
To hide my healing from the dead
If this is wrong, don't want to be right
But what do you know?
To say you never make mistakes
Well that's the biggest mistake you'll make
Wouldn't you say?

Our will wears down
Like erasers on paper
We try to rub away frown after frown
Just to find more underneath
Truth sinks ships
White lies cover guilty lovers
Who live in spite of you

You cut your colt from muscle and steam
But why so high?
'Cause when your bronco breaks its knees
You'll have to ride down here with me
You say we can make a brand new start
But what do you know?
How much forgiving can you do
If no one ever had to forgive you?

High up above the place where I sit on the ground
So hard to see your face when you always look down
Pack lightly just in case
You make your way down from your crown

How many urges must we fight?
How many wrongs before it's right?
And God said, "Now let there be light,"
Before he covered up his eyes
Wouldn't you say?

Our will wears down
Like erasers on paper
We try to rub away frown after frown
Just to find more underneath
Truth sinks ships
White lies cover guilty lovers
Who live in spite of you
