Track Name: Over Before It Starts (early demo)
if I shake my head enough
can it stop?
how the fuck did I wind up in this dream?
let's pretend to know what it means
let's ignore the space between the
door and the floor

no
this isn't real
we'll work it out
somehow
just go
i have no doubt
these are words i should say
out loud
and no
i won't come out
of this room
not now
it's better in here
where the lights swirl

you were 19 i was 21
every summer it starts over again
and each time i wonder
if it will be like that summer
or if everything's grey now
this is nice but it's just one more thing
i have to like because

everything's grey now
everything's grey now

no
this isn't real
we'll work it out
somehow
just go
i have no doubt
these are words i should say
out loud
and no
i won't come out
of this room
not now
it's better in here
where the lights swirl
Track Name: The Heys (early demo)
ve got nothing in common with your friends
but i can see why you hang out with them
maybe they're ok admitting they've had enough
but maybe they don't have problems with freezing up
spinning and waltzing around the room
trying to look like i know where i'm going
the heys, what's ups, the how are yous
just running my mouth

i don't even remember how bad i was
i just looked up and saw you staring into your cup
and i feel pretty dumb as of now
'cause i'll have to talk to everyone again somehow

hey, everyone
look at me the way you look at the sun
yeah, just go back to your conversations
beer bottles and clouds of smoke
everyone laughs at all my jokes
but the way you turn away
reminds me of my spine

i don't even remember how bad i was
i just looked up and saw you staring into your cup
and i feel pretty dumb as of now
'cause i'll have to talk to everyone again somehow

why can't you see me?
why can't you see me?
i just looked up and saw you staring into your cup
why aren't i good enough?
why aren't i good enough?
and what's with that look of disgust?
Track Name: The Woods of this House (early demo)
I got lost on the stairs again
turning around with one last word
i thought i'd get in
but these doors, they disappear so fast
around here, since we moved in

this place seemed so small when we moved in
but your door just opened up to thin air
so where are you?
so where are you?

coming to in a different room
than i'm used to sleeping in
and it's not really far enough away
to make room, for me and you
and all the people we've become
the drapes that don't work
keep me awake, 'cause every passing car
sounds like it's pulling into our yard
and i'll follow your empty cigarette packs
hoping they'll lead me home to you
like breadcrumbs through the woods of this house

this place seemed so small when we moved in
but your door just opened up to thin air
so where are you?
so where are you?

there's not even ghosts in this house anymore
just turn off the lights it looks just like before
an empty house that no one's ever lived in
dark blue, dining room
lost woods, living room
lost in, this bedroom
big fights, in bloom
i want one night without incident
without these cracks in this cavernous basement
with roots dug like arteries in here
filling in
branching out
growing thin
but they never end
and they never end
they never end
and they never end
they never end so
i'll never stop looking for you
i'll never stop looking for you
i'll never stop looking for you
i'll never stop looking for you
Track Name: Nerves (early demo)
i watch the cars in front of us
just dying for something to do
but i wait our turn to move
while the trees explode in bloom
the fireworks fade soon
and the tv snow comes down

i fall fast asleep to last year's shows
written beneath my eyes
i'll stay up all week watch the screen glow
and never leave my room
someone shake me please just tell me to breathe
then leave me the hell alone
and lately i wonder why
the sound of the phone
makes me want to die

and anyways it's not like you care anymore
so i've got what i had before
you're just another
you're just another face in this crowd
and anyways it's not like you care anymore
so i've got what i had before
you're just another
you're just another
you're just another nerve

knives drill through my teeth
and in my gums, bleeding and numb and dying
the color drains my cheeks
and makes the whole world look a little redder
and underneath the sun my limbs grow weak
my eyelids fly and shudder
it's the breath i feel in me
down in my lungs, but no words come


and anyways it's not like you care anymore
so i've got what i had before
you're just another
you're just another face in this crowd
and anyways it's not like you care anymore
so i've got what i had before
you're just another
you're just another
you're just another nerve

'cause i'm scared of
hearing your voice now
and i see your face in every nameless crowd
and i don't know how to defend
myself when it's do or die
and i haven't felt alive till now
if you're afraid of me then you should know
that i'm just another
coward, too afraid to throw your things away
these taped up boxes count the days
that we won't wake up face to face
and everything is wonderful
until it's not but who thinks about that?

we grow up too fast
we grow up too fast
we grow up too fast
