Track Name: Commitment Man (demo)
I know you don’t think too much of yourself
You left your spirits out to dry and not a penny left for my thoughts
I know the rules, even if you don’t
I know that your opinion of yourself is worth more than
Mine
Will ever be

You say you’re not a relationship guy?
But baby you know that can’t lie
I felt it in your kiss
I felt it in your kiss last night
And when you gave me your hand
I’m sorry to go off and ruin your plans
You know that you’re a commitment man
Commitment man

Remove yourself I know you’re scared to realize,
Scared to feel right, scared to defy, you
Keep yourself tied up, keeping me out of
Your straight American
Lifestyle

Who told you that you were worthless?
Who told you that you’re not worth it?

Cause I will never understand how you stand
Under those flashing lights
Giving so much of yourself to this job
Giving so much of yourself to everyone else
Never attending to your own needs,
Never resting your engine.
When I tell you I love you, you won’t listen.
You’ll get a call and speed off to the rescue

You say you’re not a relationship guy?
But baby you know that can’t lie
I felt it in your kiss
I felt it in your kiss last night
And when you gave me your hand
I’m sorry to go off and ruin your plans
You know that you’re a commitment man
Commitment man

You say you’re not a relationship guy?
But baby you know that can’t lie
I felt it in your kiss
I felt it in your kiss last night
Track Name: Choke (demo)
You're so voiceless
you grab the headliners
and spit them out-
you like the sound
but you're so empty under that body,
don't tell me you feel heavy.
Don't you know we see right through
your dense words?
Keep talking.
(Sounds of the voiceless)
I'm hearing myself say,
I’ve heard this a thousand times before.

Someday’s all I've got is a voice
in the back of my throat
but I won't choke.
I won’t-
Won't you wake up
and feel something
you know you don't have to be a ghost anymore

Are you a guest in your own ghost life
with your packed bag and fear of impact.
You can only fear what you've seen before,
so fight your demons,
don't give them hope.
At the end of the day all that matters is
are you dead or are you sleeping?
Won't you wake up and feel something

Someday’s all I've got is a voice
in the back of my throat
but I won't choke.
I won’t-
Won't you wake up
and feel something
you know you don't have to be a ghost anymore

Won't you wake up
and feel something
you know you don't have to be a ghost anymore x3
Track Name: Hand Me Downs (demo)
There are no givens,
Except what we’re given by the ones who came before us
But they left us a puzzle,
Late birthday wrapping, thick paper, paper cuts
We are creatures of a culture we create,
But we are still afflicted with our contextual birthplace

This problem’s generations old,
Hand-me-down psychology
Perfectly the puzzle pieces
Fit between my mom and me

Late birthday wrapping, thick paper, paper cuts
What they couldn’t figure, they have left for us
You are me, I’m not you
Suffering, still burns through
Hand-me-down pain!
Hand me-down pain!
Track Name: The Spitting Image (demo)
You’re the image they spit out
From your head to your toes you know you’ve got his nose
Got his nose
Kid nursing salivary glands
Surgical fear, it took them years
To splice you up and put you back again

You’ve got your mom’s eyes, and your dad’s jawline
You know you stole it, when you were born
You’ve got your mom’s lies, your dad’s incline
They gave’em to you, now you’re torn

Your body won’t accept the transplant
Rejected organs left stagnant, new blood grows
New blood grows
Conjoined veins strangle your throat
Cut the cord or put a voice behind those words

You’ve got your mom’s eyes, and your dad’s jawline
You know you stole it, when you were born
You’ve got your mom’s lies, your dad’s incline
They gave’em to you, now you’re torn

There’s no image, and I’m not spitting
But these articles and follicles, they know
My bones have grown so big and strong
I guess I drank my milk
They’ve been stronger than yours all along

I’ve got my mom’s eyes, and my dad’s jawline
You know I stole’em, when I was born
I’ve got my mom’s lies, my dad’s incline
They gave’em to me, now I’m torn

I’m not spitting
I’m not spitting
I’m not spitting, anymore
You’ve been spitting
You’ve been spitting
You’ve been spitting, all along
Track Name: I Regret What Happened in Newark (demo)
I used to write a lot about the people I used to love
But I don't love no one anymore
And I don't know how to love you and not be scared
Because I'm not sure such things exist anymore
But if I could-
I'm sure I'd tell you
I’d kiss every notch in your spine if the shivers that it sent kept your chin up all the time
I’d kiss every notch in your spine if the shivers that it sent kept your chin up all the time
Id kiss every notch in your spine

I really regret what happened in newark
On johns roof
I saw the blood spill from your lips
And I didn't know what to do

I want to tell you I love you
But I don't know if I do
I'm scared of making promises
I'm not sure I can keep
Sometimes I just don't have the right words to say-

Sometimes I just don't have the right words to say
And I never want to see your eyes turn grey
Sometimes I just don't have the right words to say
And I never want to see your eyes turn grey
I’d kiss every notch in your spine if the shivers that it sent kept your chin up all the time
I’d kiss every notch in your spine if the shivers that it sent kept your chin up all the time
Sometimes I just don't have the right words to say
And I never want to see your eyes turn grey
I’d kiss every notch in your spine
Track Name: Lockjaw (demo)
I've got a scar across my cheek dividing lockjaw and lack of sleep
I'm spitting blood between my teeth with all the fire I will speak

I've been on the road so damn long that home has become where my feet are
Don'tcha know that's how it's always been?
Home is where the heart is -
Not in a house but between my ribs caught in the spaces kept from your hands

My god the air is getting bitter. Something I could never sustain
Even with the way your voice echoed
With my cries reflecting off the bathroom sink
My god the air is getting bitter. Something I could never sustain
Even with the way your voice echoed
With my cries reflecting off the bathroom sink
My god the air is getting bitter.
My god the air is getting bitter.
My god the air is getting bitter.
My god the air is getting bitter.
My god the air is getting bitter. Something I could never sustain
Even with the way your voice echoed
With my cries reflecting off the bathroom sink
My god the air is getting bitter.
My god the air is getting bitter.
I could never bear the taste
Track Name: Almost Infinite (demo)
I can't explain what's missing In The gaps in-between.
I thought it was chemistry but it was just maps of the subway.

So what are you trying to tell me. After all this time
Cause it's been years since I've seen your face.
And our eyes don't quite align
The same way
So what are you trying to tell me. After all this time
Cause it's been years since I've seen your face.
And our eyes don't quite align
The same way

It's amazing how people make the same mistakes they swore they'd never make.
But we keep trying.

We all make the same mistakes
And we aren't bad people
Sometimes we do bad things
It's ok as long as we are growing

We all make the same mistakes
And we aren't bad people
Sometimes we do bad things
It's ok as long as we are growing

We all make the same mistakes
And we aren't bad people
Sometimes we do bad things
