Track Name: When It Calls {demo}
There’s something out there in this dim light. You feel its hands around your throat.
The changing of the colors before your eyes, the truths, they’re starting to show.
And as you wonder through that tunnel, you keep your eyes on the floor.
But those whispers tell you to look back up, and you can feel it wanting more.

And oh, so it goes: The monsters that are real are the ones that you can feel
inside. You think that you can smell its hide and can’t just be your mind.

It seems to feast upon your troubles. Grows a garden in your thoughts.
It says that it knows all of your secrets. It begins to list them all off.
And as you reach for the knife at your side, to try and snuff it right out.
But nothing’s there but an old wooden stick, and your screams, they come about - they come about.

And oh, you wanna go back home. But no place like that, that can keep you from what you know. The things that you know, now. You wanna burry yourself alive and rip out all your insides.

and then its hold feels like an embrace. Its eyes a kindness so true.
Of all the wretched souls it could ever take, the one that it chose was you.
And now you sing out hallelujah: no other darkness can you befall.
It is the only thing you’ll ever need, and you only ever wait for when it calls.

And oh, so it goes: the monsters that are real are the ones that you can feel inside, you love the smell its hide, and the way it speaks into your mind.
And oh, it shines like gold. You no longer have a past, it floods into your lungs at last.
It's so surreal, but you just need to let go: now it tells you how to feel.

I’m so sorry that this is the end. Hallelujah, oh, God, it’s the end.
Praise be. Praise be.
Track Name: Just a Little Lie {demo}
It’s the only way / It’s the only way that I’ll be okay / I’ll be okay, if you ask me to stay.
It’s the only way / It’s the only way that I’ll see that light / I’ll see that light, if you take it away.
It’s the only thing / It's the only thing pushing me forward / Pushing me forward, now.

It’s the only way that I say I love you. It’s the only way that I show you I’m alright.
It’s the only thing that I have to offer. It’s just a little lie.

Say that it's okay. Say that I'm alright... I’m okay.
say that it’s okay. Say that I'm alright… I’m okay.
Cause nothing really matters at all, If you’ve never tried.
Cause nothing really matters if I'm right.

It’s the only way / It’s the only way I ever say goodbye / I ever say goodbye - I walk away.
It’s the only time / It’s the only time that you've smile wide / You've smile wide at something I’ve said.
And that's the only thing / That’s the only thing that's torturing me / Torturing me as of late.

We’re all moving towards that light now. We think it’s the only thing we see.
But where’s the light when you’re stumbling through the darkness? Who’s got it under lock and key?

Say that it's okay. Say that I'm alright... I’m okay.
say that it’s okay. Say that I'm alright… I’m okay.
Cause nothing really matters at all, If you’ve never tried.
Cause nothing really matters if I'm right.
Track Name: Vanilla Extract {demo}
I’ve not been walking… walking on that golden line, and it’s been trouble keeping up with dime. She’s something more than I know how to spend.

I’ve had a problem in the past with romance, and now I’m aching every time i catch a glance of her. It’s something more than I know how to shake.

We breathe in so many things that are poisonous to our brains - enough to go insane, and I don’t want to do this anymore.

I think I step up looking like a million bucks, but let’s be honest: I’m only good for a couple of… smiles, before I lose interest and walk away. And I’ll never forgive myself if I do that to her.

We breathe in so many things that are poisonous to our brains - enough to go insane, and I don’t want to do this anymore.
And I’ve tried so hard to get rid of everything that fills my head if it’s something I won’t sing, but I don’t want to do this anymore.

(And now, baby, let’s roll…)
Track Name: This Song is the Town Bicycle {demo}
Through the ages we've played the game, and to that they say we should be full of shame, but they don't see. And they don't see me.
In the daytime I might wake up, but I don't feel like anything is rougher than anything, at all - anything that I see.

But you really don't really know much about me.
And I think that's the way it should be.

Telephones are catching a buzz off of our cigarettes while you make a fuss about limousines
and ordinary folks, cause no one really gets it, you know?

I see the writers on the their chopping blocks, they've all got their typewriters and they're willing to talk about the next thing that they're working on. You see, it’s really different and everything goes wrong.

Artists and fisherman both need hooks, and on the television we learn how to cook our drugs with cinematic help, but who wants pay for that girl to love herself?

And I think she looks nicer up on that shelf.

And I think maybe that's the way out.
