Track Name: witching hour (demo)
crawl through the covers / blank facing lovers
choking back the words i never get the chance to say
i am free to go, i am scared to stay

blistering brightly / decaying nightly
sworn to silence in apartments painted white
i am scared to jump / i'm afraid i'd fly

watching your chest rise / blinking with both eyes
how do i allow myself this tiny act of love?
you are waterfall, i am river mud
Track Name: submission (demo)
we turn our heads towards the wall
towards the struggle, towards the crawl out from submission
we run away from pain

we stay inside until it rains
until it rattles through our brains that we are rotting
we march towards decay

quietly existing anyway
Track Name: winter (demo)
beat like a drum / carved out & dumb
i watched the last breath leave my chest, float toward the sun

bare chest at dawn / write down a psalm
i know the winter takes its toll, it wont be long
