Track Name: Kazoo (Demo)
Lyrics:

you may think me bold
like a bird in in the sky I was born
I was ready to go
depending on the signs
I might be traveling in style
today there was no space
so I cut
and I shift
till a map
started forming on my face

even if I get to to sleep
I might start climbing over walls to get back

interesting fact
only way to know who you are
is to remember where you've been before
and know it well
I'll know where to find me

interesting thought
only way to know who you are
is to remember who you've been before
and I know this well
you'll know where to find me

you may think it wise
not to lean
when the wind
starts to push towards a sunnier side ways
though I find when balancing
that it may start to cave
so I kick and I cut
till the ground started shaping in my way
even if I get to sleep
I might start climbing between dreams to get back

interesting fact
only way to know who you are
is to remember where you've been before
and know it well
I'll know where to find me

interesting thought
only way to know who you are
is to remember who you've been before
and I know this well
you'll know where to find me


go on go on (repeated)

if we were to tilt
might not be sure of ourselves
this is a way
we are considering
but we want to know
we will be sure of
what's passed
this a way
we are considering
Track Name: Incessant Noise (Demo)
Lyrics:

and true I find it hard to sleep
because nothing in life is insusceptible
to change I know I know I know I know

afraid I'll long for what will pass
and find it's empty on the other side
and so I hold I hold I hold

and if I were to pour
the worries that I have out loud
I would be drowned
by the incessant noise
by the incessant noise
by the incessant noise


and while I feel this rise this fall
I'm pulling even more to stay in place
I am settled in this way
I am settled in this way
I am settled in this way

if loss were not an obstacle
then I would keep us as we are today
I am settled in this way
I am settled in this way
I am settled in this way

and if I were to pour
the worries that I have out loud
I would be drowned
by the incessant noise
by the incessant noise
by the incessant noise
Track Name: LYD (Demo)
Lyrics:

her history is telling
can't refrain it from talking
let it spoil in the spotlight
let us take it from view

please never bring me back
when my body dies
don't let me be lonely

and when every single thing I do
stops making sense

take this photograph
when the angles right
say I love you
let me repeat this day
let me do it my way
and don't say that I've suffered this life no

Li Li Li


ooh she got this scar
from a leap of faith
she decided to
learn from this mistake
making ties to observe
the effects of breaking them down

ooh she's got a gaze
crafted to engage
those who knew it well
left quietly
she accepted your
adoration though
she would justify boundaries in her heart

loving you down
loving you down

my heartache in telling
can't refrain it from wanting
let it hide from the spotlight
let us push it from truth

please never take me to
where my body lies
don't let me be lonely

before every single thing I do
stops making sense

take this photograph
when the angles right
say I knew you
let me repeat this day
let me do it my way
and don't say that I've suffered this life no

Li Li Li

ooh she's got a gaze
crafted to engage
those who knew it well
left quietly
she accepted your
adoration though
she would justify boundaries in her heart

loving you down
loving you down
