Track Name: appetite (a cappella demo)
when you said that you heard that he knew
you were always lookin’ down
it was an awful thing
yeah, such an awful thing
because he knew that you weren’t ready yet
no, no

when you said he was over you
it was a double-edged sword
cuz I have always loved you
yeah!
and I’ve been waiting for you
for fuckin’ half of my life
but I hate to see you cry

la la la…

so take a look around ya, turn around, baby
you’re hangin’ round now with the wrong crowd
don’t say there’s nothing you can do
might seem impossible, baby,
but you gotta find a way

sit yourself down and think about it baby
don’t hide your head down in the sand, now
there’s always something to see
these things, they come and they go,
so keep your eyes up on that road

it’s an appetite that won’t give in
until it bottoms out
til then, know I desire you emphatically and endlessly
cuz you’re outta sight

now hold your head up and think about it, girl
cuz it’s not too late, baby, you know it ain’t
don’t let no one say it is
so take a deep breath in and just think, think, think
think about it

but if you wanna turn me down, then I’ll turn around, baby
and walk right out - won’t even make a sound
but I gotta ask you anyway
I gave you my heart and soul
so won’t you please kindly reciprocate?

la la la...
Track Name: Blue Dream #1 (demo)
though the songs of adoration
bred a strange infatuation
I still had to see
if the silver-tongued words
and all the twitters of the birds
were only so many
clouds dispersing heavenly
when sunlight broke to show to me
a saddest dream

you were wrapped up in a bundle
in a raindrop as you fell
were looking quite serene
til you rippled on the surface
with a hundred thousand others
who all once had been
clouds a-growling gray and gruff
as nightmares fit and strong enough
to swallow me

you were my little bit of comfort
little bit of happiness
back when you were
my sole consolation
my only motivation
to rail against the falling of the day
Track Name: astral (demo)
don't look surprised
at the thoughts inside
cuz it's sun or it's rain
you're either sinner or saint
headed for hell or the heights
of the astral plane

don't get excited no
please don't get excited but
wake up wake up
at least wake up
cuz a messiah's been sighted
and all the sinners're invited
so we best start sinnin
now please wake up

I ask what I am but you won't tell me
I got a soul that's been damned to be set free
tonight

don't you confide
all of your empty lies
don't you act what you ain't
cuz you're a lyrical saint
and you'll ascend through the sky
to the astral plane

but don't get excited no
please don't get excited but
wake up wake up
at least wake up
cuz a messiah's been sighted
and all the sinners're invited
so we best start sinnin
now please wake up
Track Name: Lucy Mae (demo)
when your shadow lengthens
in the falling sun
and the stars trickle out
and flicker one-by-one,
I pray, my love -
I pray, think of me

and if the full moon's climbing
up its lonesome stair
and the cold glow catches
on the curve of your hair,
I pray, my love -
I pray, think of me

hey, hey, Lucy Mae,
slip in through my window
with the lights low -
no one knows -
fall into the comfort
of a quick tryst,
locked lips
sealing up a secret newly made
hey, hey,
I say, Lucy Mae

and if the lights burn out
atop the lamppost high
and you stare into the city
'neath a charcoal sky
I pray, my love -
I pray, think of me

and if the clouds cry comfortless
in sheets of pearl,
fallen fables fraught with fragrance
from a far-off world,
I pray, my love -
I pray, think of me

hey, hey, Lucy Mae,
slip in through my window
with the lights low -
no one knows -
fall into the comfort
of a quick tryst,
locked lips
sealing up a secret newly made
hey, hey,
I say, Lucy Mae
Track Name: Roses (demo)
I guess I always knew
I'd never be waiting in the queue
amidst the dozens or the billions
by St. Peter's ivory gate
asking how and why and who
really hung the sun and moon
and if another star will rise
after the light begins to fade

or if every wife and man
is just a castle in the sand
made to attenuate the boredom
of a god alone in space
just an obselescene planned
at last to crumble in her hands
as if all she ever wanted
was a mirror to her face

and do my petty songs
truly transcend right and wrong?
am I just aiding and abetting
pirates of our souls' desire?
and if the world should sing along
with beat of drum and clang of gong
is such a striking uniformity
a blessing or a pyre?

but when I look into your eyes
I cannot say I really mind
if I'm a snowflake in the summer
or the center of it all
'cause this love of yours and mine
is quite as vast as any sky
and if there's nothing more
then still I'll gladly meet the reaper's call

I guess I always knew
I'd never be waiting in the queue
amidst the dozens or the billions
by St. Peter's ivory gate
asking how and why and who
really hung the sun and moon
and if another star will rise
after the light begins to fade
Track Name: Good Morning (demo)
good morning, yesterday
I'm glad to see you off
I hate to see dead flowers
as they wilt and dry and fall
and I'm staring at tomorrow
with two eyes like crystal balls
and I'm never gonna fall in love with you

good morning, sun
I see the moon can't pay its rent
you've extinguished all the stars
and took back the light you lent
and I see you throwing shadows
casting one-side silhouettes
and I'm trying not to fall in love with you

don't wait for what you need
soon hate gives gives way to greed
a cry for open space
a love without a face
can't defend itself

good morning, dreams
I see you fading every day
into restless new realities
that find me as I lay
but if you'd like to stick around sometime
we'd blow these clouds away
and I think that I might fall in love with you

so lock the door and throw away the key
and I'll forget all that I've seen
it wasn't really real enough for me
no, it's naught to be believed
it's only yesterday
