Track Name: Lost Groom (demo)
Lost groom

I found the bride waiting at my door
It was four in the morning and dogs were howling out for more
As a way to keep the hunger fed
seems like I’m losing my game but winning at someone else’s

She had Walked that half mile under the red moon
Searching the shadows for the lost groom

I said please come, in it’s chillin’ cold
But she stood there straight like the statue of a general
She said can you please tell me who you searching for
I said I don’t search anymore they just come knock at my door

I don’t need to wander round anymore, dear
What others see dark I find perfectly clear

Well I have to say I was staying straight by that time
But that night she had a couple of shots
And I drank a whole bottle of moonshine
Tell me again who you said you were
Well fact is I’m the grand grand son of William Tell

Just put this bottle up in your head
It’s half empty now, anyway
Track Name: With us (demo 2)
With us

Met my lady on the combat zone
She was a vet from the chemical wars
She was the skinny rose of wisdom
Could see through her like I see through a soul
And she said

Get together with us
Get together with the rest of us
Get together with us
Get in the shade with the rest of us

Met your ghost in a hospital floor
Drawing sings on the window breath
So translucent and shy
A meth head lost in a sinking maze
And he said

Get together with us
Get together with the rest of us
Get together with us
Get in the shade with the rest of us

Met myself on a subway train
I was the picture of disaster
A pour of light going down the drain
A gentle soul in a terminal wreck
And I said

Get together with us
Get together with the rest of us
Get together with us
Get in the shade with the rest of us
Track Name: Old Law (demo)
Old Law

Let’s move together
To a house with no name
Let’s be haunted together
Let’s get rid of our pain

Lest play together
through the joy of our cell
Lest swim together
inside the wishing well

And let him come trough
Like a ray in a room
In a hospital somewhere
Where a child has been cured

You are the first ray of light
In my hospital room

Let’s move together
to a merciless county
where we can be free
to hurt the people we love

and get back in acceptance
just the smile of the world
like the sun in the room
where a child has been cured

Let’s move together
To a place in the shade
In the midst of a mountain
away from this day.

and get back in acceptance
just the smile of the world
like the sun in the room
where a child has been cured

You are the first ray of light
In my hospital room

Let’s blame each other
Let’s call the fault love
Let them pay for our sins
Let’s get rid of old law
Track Name: With us (demo 1)
With us

Met my lady on the combat zone
She was a vet from the chemical wars
She was the skinny rose of wisdom
Could see through her like I see through a soul
And she said

Get together with us
Get together with the rest of us
Get together with us
Get in the shade with the rest of us

Met your ghost in a hospital floor
Drawing sings on the window breath
So translucent and shy
A meth head lost in a sinking maze
And he said

Get together with us
Get together with the rest of us
Get together with us
Get in the shade with the rest of us

Met myself in a subway train
I was the picture of disaster
A pour of light going down the drain
A gentle soul in a terminal wreck
And I said

Get together with us
Get together with the rest of us
Get together with us
Get in the shade with the rest of us
Track Name: Through the Garden (demo 1)
I walk through the garden
I walk through the garden
I walk till it's dawn
Through the valley of the things I've done
Walk till it's dawn
Through the valley of the things I've done
There's no one left in the garden
There's no one left in the garden
Track Name: Liberator (demo 2)
Liberator

Been waiting long for the birth of Jesus
In the bungalows
Playing cards and drinking rye
With the good old folks
Standing here with my arms wide open
In the sign of a cross
Been waiting long for the birth of Jesus
Into this other form

Been waiting long for the birth of the sun
Inside this empty room
But all I got was the permanent blink
Of a paper moon
Now channel five is bringing good news
Now channel five is bringing good news
The world is sinking
It’s sinking low

I am the liberator
I’ll bring you light in a plastic bag
I’m the liberator
(I love this place)

Come pay a visit to my dusty room
Come wait with me for her to come
The days are pregnant with a promise of water
She might be coming
She’s coming soon

'Cause she’s the Liberator
She’ll bring you truth in its plastic case
Yeah, she’s the Liberator
She’ll love this place.
Track Name: Sinkin' Up (demo)
SINKIN’ UP

Welcome home to the death of a flower
Are you sinking up?
Can you feel your inner void risin’
But still react?
Is chaos something more
Than a Chain of facts?
Is beauty something else?
Or good? Or bad?

I concentrate on the mask you’re wearing
(it’s so cool)
(well) It looks like a cat

Are you, are you, are you, are you
wakin’ up?
Are you, are you, are you, are you
wakin’ up?

People talking ‘bout their midlife crisis
it sounds like an oil war
People borrowing second hand ideas
To polish like new
Is it chaos something more
Than conditions and facts?
Is truth more or less tolerable
Than a silent rock?

I concentrate on the mask you’re wearing
oh you’re still
My intelligent cat

Are you, are you, are you, are you
Sinkin’ up?
Are you, are you, are you, are you
Sinkin’ up?


Are you, are you, are you, are you,
Sinkin’ up?
Are you, are you, are you, are you
Sinkin’ up?
Am I, Am I, Am I, Am I
Sinking’ up?
Are you, are you, are you, are you
Wakin’ up?
Track Name: Life of Saints (demo)
LIFE OF SAINTS

I was ridin’ in that midnight train
It was the beginning on the childhood's end
I was bringin’ back my early dreams
I was thinkin’ bout the life of saints
Blood and flesh without a tear
My sexual balance, forever ripped
Even before it was cast
Well I guess it wasn’t meant to last
Was it?

You see the eternal in the common life
I see the landscape falling apart
And both of us are turning deaf
Both just thinkin’ bout the life of saints…

Take it all as a sinking ship
Are you ready for the life of saints?
Take it all as a river too deep
Are you ready for the life of saints?

You & I Caught in a plane
You & I just trying to keep it sane
You and me as differing lines
Both thinkin about that sacred lifes
Are you ready for a change in style?
Oh are you ready to be cut in half?
Are you ready to think & think in vain
Till your eyes fall & your conscience melts

You see the eternal in the common life
I see the landscape falling apart
And both of us are turning deaf
Both just thinkin’ bout the life of saints…

Take it all as a sinking ship
Are you ready for the life of saints?
Take it all as a river too deep
Are you ready for the life of saints?
Track Name: When I First Came to Town (demo, rehearsal)
When I first came to town
Well all those fuckers they gathered round
And they bought me drinks
Oh lord how quickly they changed their tune

And now demons surround me
I move slow but they track me
Like the blood on this heart so white
Is there for everyone
For everyone to see

O sweet Jesus
There is no turning back
There is always one more town
A little further down the track

So my cup is empty now
And I ain’t got a crown
Pour me one more whiskey, brother
And slowly let me drown
Oh let me drown on it

Cause The hunter is out
And even whores they hide
I will go when dawn breaks
I will fly with the high tide
Let the sea kill my name

O sweet Jesus
There is no turning back
I’m paying for their sins
I can’t take my sins back

They say papa won’t leave you
But we know it’s a rotten lie
You’re alone in this graveyard
And you have to dig
Yo gotta dig yourself

So I am leaving now
But one day I’ll return
So this scum can easily see
Oh Just how quickly
How quickly tables turn

O sweet Jesus
Well I know this ain’t really the end
There is always one more town
A little further round the bend.
Track Name: Liberator (demo 1)
Liberator

Been waiting long for the birth of Jesus

Standing here with my arms wide open
In the sign of a cross
Been waiting long for the birth of Jesus

Track Name: Through the Garden (demo 2)
I walk through the garden
I walk through the garden
I walk till it's dawn
Through the valley of the things I've done
Walk till it's dawn
Through the valley of the things I've done
There's no one left in the garden
There's no one left in the garden
Track Name: I Wanna go to the Beach
Well I read it in the midnight press
A part was hard to believe, I know
The blab la bla and the so and so
But there was truth in it

They had a picture shot in old Tangiers
Someone like you with a cat and a kid
I saw your ghost crossing right through it
To the mean old me

So I left my room and went out on the streets
To find the people who could right my wrong
They were all cheering at the sinkin’ sun
Oh They were having fun

They led me down to the Dragon Den
Where I got packed and ready to be sent
“Yeah, we can make you travel far
In a shadowy train…”

I dreamt of tracks headin’ for the coast
I dreamt of hills just over the sand
Woke up roaring at the ocean’s hand
I wanna go to the beach
