Track Name: Running Blind Demo
And I follow him
through the house he built
we’re going to sell it soon
we’re going underground

I can’t comprehend anymore
I can’t understand what love is for
I can’t patronize your faded face
I can’t wrestle with the out of place
and you’re leaving me through leaving her
I’m trying to speak but can’t find the words
I’m breaking walls inside my mind
you blindfold me, I’m running blind

It’s bittersweet but sound
I’m going to meet the road
I’m packing up my bags
to leave my home

away from all these courts
away from broken doors
you swung your hand into
broke your bone in two

I can’t comprehend anymore
I can’t understand what love is for
I can’t patronize your faded face
I can’t wrestle with the out of place
and you’re leaving me through leaving her
I’m trying to speak, can’t find the words
I’m breaking walls inside my mind
you blindfold me, I’m running blind

I don’t want to know you anymore.

Oh, I, I’m running blind
Oh, I, I’m running blind
Track Name: Youth Demo (Acoustic)
Found a way to put it all in a vault
the keeper told me I could live and never get old
I see you laying in the bed, your arm in a vine
I know you’ll wither like the winter; the spring could be mine!

And now swerving down the coaster, years going down
all the highs are only hind sights, graves in the ground
and I cruise along the ocean, gasp in the breeze
every dream I’m drowning, his eyes all I see

Threw the medication overboard
jumped into the sea and swam to the shore
I saw you on the edge you extended your hand
and led me to the land and said
“What are you waiting for, time is an open door
you could be almost gone, you could be so much more”
I could be dead, a skeleton in the shed (Ah, ah)
my daughters checking the will but only finding the bill (Ah, ah)

Shadows casting down on an open sky
You aren't far behind!
I cup my hands chalice but the water dries

Ahhhhhhhh….
Ahhhhhhhh….

trains in the midnight, buses board in the day
I hear the children role call, I hear them laugh as they play
And all the sirens around, come to think it’s the same
I’ve come to think it’s my head, I think I might know the way…

temples of stone, caverns of youth
found the fountain in the city was already used
and now shuttles to the last one, I could be the first one (Ah, ah)
shut all of the latches, green lights on the dashboard (Ah, ah)

Galaxies ahead and I’ll never die
people told me different, I know it’s a lie
Open my eyes, finally I see

Ahhhhhhhh….
Ahhhhhhhh….

You could be the mecha
I could be the bleeder
we could live forever
follower and leader

You could be the mecha
I could be the bleeder
we could live forever
follower and leader!

You could be the mecha (Ah)
I could be the bleeder (Ah)
we could live forever (Ah)
follower and leader (Ah)

You could be the mecha (Ah)
I could be the bleeder (Ah)
we could live forever (Ah)
follower and leader!

Live and learn
learn to die
mortal skin
mortal time
what I saw
bit off my head
I’ll never had a clue what I missed out in
sentiment
something warm
feel the rush
when I was born
life is all
ace and spade
mine to give
yours to take

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Track Name: Hilltop Plaza Demo
On the Hilltop Plaza
let's wander off the tether
In the twilight lit by animals, if I could belong
in a life i endlessly want...

Better move before our two is one
We will lose or win to no one
I will fend for you until i die!

On the Hilltop Plaza
Won't you trust me? Just a few sights then we'll leave
See a tale of a million feathers
will be paraphrased by sweaters, neglecters, conformers, condemners
In light of this treason they'll kill us with reason
But i swear we're the good men, just give us a shot, give us a chance
ooh, hey!

Better move before our two is one
We will lose or win to no one
I will fend for you until i die!

They will grit their teeth and see
that it's only you and it's only me
They will come to understand
what it means to be a man

Here on this hilltop
I'll be the shoulder to rest on
But restless, an army grows upon the distance
convinced to end existence
Our moment comes, it glistens
and we will climb the last branch
and we will come to withstand!

They will grit their teeth and see
that it's only you and it's only me
They will come to understand
what it means to be a man
what it means to come adapt
what it means to be a man
what it means to be animal

It's only you and it's only me
It's only you and it's only me
It's only you and it's only me
It's only you and it's only me
Track Name: Mountain Climber Demo
And the voices rise
mountain climber
heading for the skies
today, she dies

Sun was in my eyes
couldn’t think straight
When I found her love
it was too late

So don’t wait for her
That’s what it said to me
Don’t give it up for her
Don’t waste your sympathy

oh, oh, oh, oh

While I straightened ties
she’d face the end
Press another suit
This one for a friend

And those silences
that I’d mistake
was her waiting for
a move I’d make

So don’t wait for her
That’s what it said to me
Don’t give it up for her
Don’t waste your sympathy

oh, oh, oh, oh

And the whistle blows
and she’s almost there
with the amber sun
reflecting in her hair

And I’ll always feel
mountain climber
that I want you here
now that I know

So don’t wait for her
That’s what it said to me
Don’t give it up for her
Don’t waste your sympathy

So don’t wait for her
That’s what it said to me
Don’t give it up for her
Don’t waste your sympathy

oh oh oh oh

Now I wait for her
I’d be the face she’d see
I’d give it up for her
but now it’ll never be.

oh oh oh oh...
