Track Name: Oh, How They Dance After the Kill (live improvisation)
Oh, how they dance after a kill
And still the laughter lingers in the air
It's fair, for everything will come around
And everything will come around
Around, I thought I saw someone at the door, it's no one
Someone's at the door
There's someone at my door

Oh, I'm just dumb and bloodied up
I cut my teeth into the stone
I'm cold now, I'm sleeping as I'm swallowed up whole
Into the dirt and the canyon folds
Track Name: Liars on Fire (experimental recording)
Fires will burn
And liars never learn
All things unable
Even you live in a fable
Track Name: Fevers and Fears (screwed up and rough demo)
This fever's burning me up
Everything is a blur, cauterizing my cut
Shut down and fade away tonight
It's alright so long as you are near
I fear the worst has yet
To come collect on my unpaid debts
Regrets are few but I can't neglect
That this is not what I had expected
Track Name: Pylons (rough demo)
I have been burning at the stake
And if all I take is your breath away
What am I to do without your sin
Burning within, it keeps me alive
Track Name: Sea Foam Memory (demo | December 30th)
Please don't ever forget
the words to that poem
That washed up along
with the sea foam
Nobody has to know
Secret and separate
Lives lived side by side
We are bees in a beehive
I'm just trying to keep warm
Track Name: Evil Dream Repeater (early demo)
Evil dream recurring still
Damage is done, do what we will
Rolling hills inside my head

Dead in the dirt
Eaten up by worms
I can't believe
That I was on the Earth
And to think that all I
Cared about was some girl

I just want this evil
Dream out of my head so
I can finally get the
Sleep that I have needed

Father, won't you let me
Drown here in my bed?
Mother is in the other room
Cleaning up your mess
