Track Name: You Can't Spell Romantic without (Drunken) Antic(s) [Demo]
Write me a letter back
Pass me the bottle
please
I'm drowning

And as the night goes on,
the nightmares fade away.

And as we fade away,
the stars shine overhead:
twinkling lives we'll never lead
all staring back at us

like well-intentioned sheep
waiting for the slaughter
or our next drink

and I can't think

of a better place to be.

No, I can't think
of a better place to be.
Track Name: Keanan
Well, we're wasting away
like moss on dead branches

The creek has gone dry
and so have our veins

There's a mural on the wall
of the forest that surrounds us

It's our attempt at staying wild,
though we know we're all caged

Who's going to sing
for the ghost of Paul Sweet
when we're gone?

Well, the band's always playing
but not always together

The old piano's teeth
are worn and ground down

While the paint fades and peels
and the pipes rust over

the Spirit remains
orchestrating cricket serenades

But who's going to sing
for the ghost of Paul Sweet
when we're gone?
Track Name: You Try and That's Good Enough
Chase the smoke
as it dances
out my mouth
and over tombstones

another
Sisyphean
day

Look up as the
world zooms out
See the paper circle
in the sky

floating behind gray smudges
left by unknown
illustrators

There's no more
reason
to be brave

But you try
and that's good enough
for me.

Our egos battle
one another
locking horns and
making love

Communication hurts
you always say

But you try
and that's good enough for me

A purple haze lifts
from my temples I
view the future through
cracked sunglasses
you
don't understand
my
translator's fritzing
there's a
questioning look in your eyes

But you try
and that's good enough for me

Yeah,
you try
and that's good enough
for me
Track Name: The Creature
Are you ashamed
of what you've made
or afraid
of what I've become?

My life
at your command,
Modern-day Prometheus
We angels of death
must dance
Is there meaning to all this?

We can't escape
the eyes of God,
though History
is more forgiving

Memories
outlive their meaning,
Modern-day Prometheus
