Track Name: WOULDN'T LET YOU GO
You don't wanna talk about it
I don't wanna find
You'd rather press your lips
To anybody's cheek but mine
I'd be a liar if I said
You weren't worth the time
We've both watched time slide by

I wouldn't let you go
But there's no way for you to know

Soft and old
And next in line
You'll fear your own mind
In time

You so often pick the fruit
That isn't in your tree
And when the fruit is bruised
You toss it, carelessly
Across the carpeting
We wipe our filthy feet
I help you break your legs
And you help me
Track Name: YOUR SWAY (KEEPS THE ROT AWAY) (demo)
Here
In a land of foreign stoops
I've watched you make your move
And the perils you've designed
Are only in your mind
And all these monuments are chimes
Colliding in the wind
With a clang we find
The future's always waiting to begin
You look so plain
And you speak so low
And your beauty sways and waves
Like an elm tree or an oak
My silence is the ax
That's chopping at the trunk
And the weeds refuse to rise
From the very place
That you sprung up
I can't think you into thinking
That the thought that brings you peace
Has anything to do
With me
Your sway
Keeps the rot away
Track Name: A LONG DRAGGING FOOTSTEP (demo)
A long dragging footstep
Clears the farmland, the forests
And the empty parking lots
A long dragging footstep
Frees the city
And all the lonely souls
Drains the rivers and the oceans
Puts a hush
To the commotion
The Footstep
Always has its way
A long dragging footstep
Leaves a twisting, gnawing groove
A long dragging footstep
No one can move
The Footstep
Always has its way
It's the smoke between your teeth
It's the pulsing light through the blinds
The screaming in your sleep
A fire
In a hayfield
Where the farmer makes its bed
A worm-fed muscle
In your heart or in your head
The Footstep
Always has its way
