Track Name: Right Here - 2012 Demo
Come on in
Seat yourself and let us begin
Take it in
Find your place
We'll welcome you in to our our arms

Though it might take a while
I'm sure you'll find your way
And if it takes a while
You'll have a place to stay

And don't be trampled on
By all the things they say
Don't let it get you down
When things don't go your way
'Cause we'll be right here
We'll be right here to stay

Maybe some day
When we've got it all together
Maybe it'll be
Just a little easier to breathe
And can we save that place in time?
So we can give it all away

And don't be trampled on
By all the things they say
Don't let it get you down
When things don't go your way
'Cause we'll be right here
We'll be right here to stay

Come on in
Seat yourself and let us begin
Take it in
Find your place
We'll welcome you in to our our arms
Track Name: Done - 2012 Demo
What are we doing here anyway?
It's an impossibility
For us to have ended anywhere else

Now we draw the curtains down
And all around
And no one can see in this room
We've locked ourselves in

Only one condition to surrender
That we both bow our heads
And admit that all has been done

What are we to say?
That we don't know how to handle it?
What are we to do?
Just move on like it never happened and...

Seen in in your eyes
An uncertainty
That wasn't there a month ago
But now it grows
Across your field of view

Certainly I sensed it
But rallying against it
Would serve as no defense
To our decline

What are we to say?
That we don't know how to handle it?
What are we to do?
Just move on like it never happened and...
Track Name: Get Up, Get Out - 2012 Demo
Get up, get out
It's not the day to stay in bed
Rise and reclaim
What was taken away

I know you're feeling like you just can't win
They've got you feeling
You've committed some sin
You've got to know that you can
Change your situation

It'll take some time but you'll get there
There's nothing in your way
That you can't bear
And even when the road seems too long
Well you shouldn't give in just yet

So you started
But you cannot see the end
Before you break
You'll see just how far you can bend
In a while you'll find it getting
So much easier

It'll take some time but you'll get there
There's nothing in your way
That you can't bear
And even when the road seems too long
Well you shouldn't give in just yet

What of all the times
Where you couldn't stand?
When no one was around
To lend you a hand?
How do you get through
When you go it alone?

It'll take some time but you'll get there
There's nothing in your way
That you can't bear
And even when the road seems too long
Well you shouldn't give in just yet
Track Name: Snow - 2012 Demo
Snow outside my window
Coating all the trees
Covering the streets below

You can hear it blowing in the wind
Drifting off of rooftops
Swirling in the air all around

It's a whisper as if coming in a dream
Slips inside your head and offers no retreat
It changes everything

Blows through the city
In wave after wave
And makes it all clean again
Track Name: Failure To Thrive - 2012 Scratch Take
Whatever it was for
It doesn't work anymore
What was the point of it, really?
To be the ruin of us, nearly

To take it out, and put it down
It was the best next step
What would we have done
If it all fell apart?
Track Name: Failure To Thrive - 2013 Demo
Whatever it was for
It doesn't work anymore
What was the point of it, really?
To be the ruin of us, nearly

To take it out, and put it down
It was the best next step
What would we have done
If it all fell apart?

It's not that I don't love you, I do
It's just that I'm not in love with you
But I can't even say that with a straight face
It's something I keep telling myself
To get through the day

To take it out, and put it down
It was the best next step
What would we have done
If it all fell apart?

I keep on hiding
Deep down inside where nobody can see
But I'm not alone in here
I still have to get you out
To feel some peace

To take it out, and put it down
It was the best next step
What would we have done
If it all...
