Track Name: Forces of Nature (Home Demo)
The darkness cued the silence
Or was it the other way around?

And the wind was a conversation
Between the sky and the ground

Forces of nature collide
Forced by our nature’s divide

The lightness cued some laughter
As we shed our shriveled skin

Nude and full of mourning
We run on out again

Forces of nurture align
Forced by our nurtured design
Forces of nature collide
Forces of nature divide

Looking for love
Looking for love
Looking for love
Track Name: Side | Side (Home Demo)
Making my way through the tall grass, the wind’s rustling through my hair
The smell of the sea rises up through the air

I settle down, find a place to rest, wade into the shallow cove
I’m half way in when I notice a boat

Don’t try to wake me up, please don’t wake me up
I haven’t had enough, I haven’t had enough

I look around and there’s no one there, so I make my way to the stern
I climb right in like it was my turn

Swing side to side on that floating bed, nothing but blue above
Evading conversations about blood and lust

Well it’s soon winter in Montreal
The cross just stands so bare and tall
The trick-or-treaters move inside
It’s been a very good night, it’s been a very good night….

Don’t try to wake me up, please don’t wake me up
I haven’t had enough, I haven’t had enough
Track Name: I'm Starting To See (Studio Demo)
It was just the other day, when I had a dream about an old friend named Katey
On the shoulder of a highway, we had nothing on our backs
I must have told a good joke, cause I remember her laugh
But we just kept on talking as the cars went whizzing by

I don’t think that a day goes by, where we are not left wanting for more
Well we can steal some objects, it don’t matter if we do
And we can steal some ideas, as long as they ring true
The world can forgive but we seldom forget our own crimes
… and I think that’s why

I’m starting to see how life is nothing but poetry and the means to the light

I just can’t find the right words to use, to show others how I feel about these common day issues
I just keep hashing things out, and then throwing them away
I don’t know if I know anything, but if there’s one thing I’ll say
It’s ”get ready for a revolution because it’s coming soon!”

I know time talks
Since the truth keeps
Re-directing
My priorities
And my questions
Almost everyday
I’m happy to say

That I’m starting to see how life is nothing but poetry and the means to the light
