Track Name: The Quiet and the Peace (demo)
we will float
to the center of the lake
on a boat we made from crates
and a sail of blankets
tied together

and if we row
the sooner we will be
among the quiet and the peace
then we can wonder

did we do right

did we do right by our mothers
by our brothers
by each other
and by our lovers
Track Name: Roses (demo)
I am always wrong
always
I will never fail
to fail you

what is it everyone
seems to know
that I don't

and why can't I ever just
leave well enough alone

over and over again
and so it goes

I'll just keep telling myself
everything's coming up roses
Track Name: Bleary-Eyed (demo)
bleary-eyed weathered and worn
sunburned somber and sore
and the idle fray of existence decays
with the silhouettes we left standing on the shore

from the ire we are to be reborn
when the calm that comes before the storm
gives way for a spell as the gale winds swell
and throw our bodies overboard

oh, the shame of every wasted day
and the dust of our dreams that remain here resonates
through our weary hearts
through our hallow bones
and weighs heavily on our souls
