Try Again


Album: Early Demos
Track: 01
Running Time: 04:33
The following lyrics are questionable and widely incomprehensible.

(set on a breach, he feels his fists confronted)
we wont be involved in your operated gold rush
(Building a loft, it pays to be so bold)
a filthy hollow point, a sturdy voice wont hold it...

Im different in memories
(Please, try again)
A feeling I cannot feel
Id love to feel the back of your hand


Where'd everybody go?
On my way
My legs give
A tip of my hat and
Roll westward
Why swim?

Stalepenny

Track: 02/05
Running Time: 05:31/4:47
The following lyrics are questionable and widely incomprehensible.

As I walk forward today
Stay close they might just have say
No more reaching the floor
For upward you will find doors
Respond to what you withhold
And exercise seven fold
I hide my past in the breeze

Take!
I turn the tides a little

See, Saw

Running Time: 7:29


In chorus we stagger
In chorus we stagger
In chorus we stagger
In chorus we stagger.

Closed eyes
Bring more light inside.
Small breeze
Helped us keep our strides.
The large gust
Won't keep you in tact
And if i'm forewarned
I'll make the same mistake.

Fill in the blank

And though the crane is gone I see my way,
I may hit one too far,
Been said it's all more likely to save.
And though the rain is gone,
Regenerates,
I pushed it calm and still,
Until it's all just breaking away
Breaking away

In chorus we stagger
In chorus we stagger
In chorus we stagger
In chorus we stagger.

Closed eyes
Bring more light inside.
Small breeze
Helped us keep our strides.
The large gust
Won't keep you in tact
And if i'm forewarned
I'll make the same mistake.

Fill in the blank

And though the crane is gone I see my way,
I may hit one too far,
Been said it's all more likely to save.
And though the rain is gone,
Regenerates,
I pushed it calm and still,
Until it's all just breaking away
Breaking away

Wait
For him
He might be late
Light a match to the fire,
Sit warm by the fireplace,
Here he comes, it's the realtor,
Maybe he'll have something different to say.
"take it all"

No one sees what someone sees,
Built my house on sand,
No one knows what someone knows,
If rebuilt I'd protest.
No one hears what someone hears.

Thats the sound of my scar

I'm tense but I breathe

The following lyrics are questionable and widely incomprehensible.

Hey, pendejo - -

There's a fight that I fight each night with all my might
Til I simply give in
A fair fight between cheaters friend
And it's a gamble who will win
And in the simple cause of a desperate man
It is a simple cause
He's got the master plan
I'm in the way, I'm in the way

Timerstye


Album: Early Demos
Track: 08
Running Time: 06:57
The following lyrics are questionable and widely incomprehensible.

What if I live up to the masses
Make a choice and render everything
Give up these eyes what's most important
Now that piper he turns to look at me
Father said home is where the heart is
As the clock ticks on I fear a stye
To know which way the answer is
Yes but why,
Yes but why,
Yes but why

We won't sail through the desert
Take these times all for granted again
Choke on the reason
A goddamn face with no name
Sail through the desert take these times all for granted again
And if I plow into none

Weigh my fortune
Weigh my fortune's toll
Weigh my fortune
Weigh my fortune's toll

What if I ask for words of wisdom
And in the process choose to change my mind
Give up to the friend that's in the past now
What can she give, she can't give life
As I turn my head I see lamb steeple
As I rise my eyes I see below
Seems as though it comes about
More appealing
Well that's just a lie

We won't sail through the desert
Take these times all for granted again
Choke on the reason
A goddamn face with no name
Sail through the desert take these times all for granted again
And if I plow into none

Weigh my fortune
Weigh my fortune's toll
Weigh my fortune
Weigh my fortune's toll

And in time, on this day
Wishing I was in the back seat away

Now these rocks, come around
And I choose to surrender myself
These are trying times with failing conclusions

fresh air

die die die die
long time and you can't come on to me
blind to watch you
now this time god has waged his war
now this time I will breathe no more
long time and you can't come on to me

Track: 03
Running Time: 3:38


Tell the world how I'll miss it's small atmosphere,
Wonder how it will evolve.
How it rose and it broke won't be trivial,
Stay on your feet in your hole.

Mr. Four Eyes,
Please remember,
We still hold you dear.
Mr. Young Man,
Blonde haired stranger,
What separates brings us closer.

Let us announce that it's dark on the holidays,
And the morphine blurts out little chunks.
Don't let us know if your skin starts to turn too cold,
One nap and then...

Mr. Veteran,
Please remember,
I tried to revive your breathe.
Mrs. Undone,
What is upstairs?
Steps but no banister.

'Cause that's what you did for me.
'Cause that's what you did for me.
'Cause that's what you did for me.

Salts deprived from the eyes,
Without patience and a foothold to grip,
I'll be the next in line.
Have a rope,
But nonetheless,
If it's burning while I'm rising,
It could only be the second best.

So if there is not but a last thing we're adding on,
It's seems neglected with rods.
I think I'll stay up,
For I'd swear I just heard your voice,
Maybe it's just something in the air.

Mr. Four Eyes,
Please remember,
We still hold you dear.
Mr. Young Man,
Blonde haired stranger,
What separates brings us closer.

Was that what you paid to see?
Was that what you paid to see?
Was that what you paid to see?

Salts deprived from the eyes,
Without patience and a foothold to grip,
I'll be the next in line.
Have a rope,
But nonetheless,
If it's burning while I'm rising,
It could only be the second best.

Please, carry on.
Don't, carry on.

The following lyrics are questionable and widely incomprehensible.

Seeing is believing
My father said he knew me well
There's no way to turn
Seeing is believing
There's no way to turn
Tongue tied got to be a soldier
Tongue tied got to be a war
