Track Name: Little Pearl (Demo)
I am the bible to myself
I am the god and nothing else
I built this holiest of hell
for every night to send myself
Baby, don't come around here
if you do he'll find you hiding
Baby, don't come back dear
if you do he'll leave you crying

You are a stranger to yourself
you bought what lies the mirror tells
Ghost shallow heartbeats in your chest
when you dream about it
Baby, don't come around here
if you do he'll find you hiding
Baby, don't come back dear
if you do he'll leave you crying

Ghost in the sea,
swimming to me
with the undercurrents
pulling her away
lost in the wave,
sink down beneath
the ocean little pearl.
Don't suffocate unwanted,
Don't suffocate unmedicated
Don't suffocate unwanted,
Don't suffocate unmedicated

Just be the god all by yourself
and don't let anybody else
build you their holiest of hell
when you can do it by yourself
Baby, don't come around here
if you do he'll find you hiding
Baby, don't come around here
if you do he'll find you crying
So maybe don't come around dear
if you do you'll find them hiding
Maybe don't come around here
if you do you'll find them crying

Don't suffocate unwanted,
Don't suffocate unmedicated
Don't suffocate unwanted,
Don't suffocate unmedicated
Track Name: Don't Drop Anchor In These years (demo 1)
It’s a funny story, that I need not tell
but yes I pray, but when I pray,
I pray that we all go to hell
Its a heart grown hollow,
Its a poor man's spell
Its a song with a voice of a child
that you sing to yourself
When you’re quiet on your own
Try to find your way back home
In a room of souvenirs
Don’t drop anchor in these years
Find the diamond in the tears

Listen, I don’t know you,
won’t pretend I do
And I’d like to keep it that way
if it’s all just the same to you
Cause there’s a certain something,
when we’re both alone
I can trick myself deep in believing
I’ve found my way home
But I know it isn't real
and that's a fucked up way to feel
Cause there’s a story in your eyes
That I will never realize
'cause if I ever realize
I'll fall apart with you.



And I thought of you tonight
And I turned off all my lights
And I meditate on you
until I feel you coming through
until I feel you coming through ... that door
Track Name: Die With Me (Demo 2013)
Die with me, oh, never let me go,
to a place that you just cannot be
Die with me, I don’t ever want to leave you,
because you’re the holy part of me.
Die with me, in an eternity of silence,
I’ll only want to hear you breathe
Die with me, in a field beneath the stars,
that’s the only place I want to be

So let not death come to depart us,
I will walk you through this forest
To a room outside a kingdom
Beyond the changing of the seasons
Oh flower beware. No flower be there.

Die with me, on a raft that’s moving slow,
towards the raging of the blackest sea
Die with me, in the hollows of our home,
where we dreamed of immortality
Die with me, on a fancy feather bed,
with our veins aglow with morphine
Die with me, though I wish that we could stay,
there’s a crow up in that willow tree

Saying, "Let not death come to depart thee
No blade of time can cut the heart strings
Tied in bows and knots and stitches
Bound by fate not to surrender
And no ghost, nor spells, nor witches
Can unweave us from these wishes."
Oh flower beware ...

I die with you, for like branches to the breeze,
you’re the only living part of me.
I die with you, said the branches to the breeze,
"you’re the only living part of me."
