Track Name: Airborne (Demo)
Late last night the airborne made their move
And trailed behind the traces of their destination
The glory of the south lies in a time ago
It’s difficult to know if we should stay or we should go

Say my name, it’s jaded
And you can call me blind
You can call me listless
And say that I’m too kind

But I know
That matter has the greatest weight in your eyes
And what you see is what you state in your eyes
As rotor blades and wings cut by

And they lay this track all across the plain
And tempt your wandering eye with connections made
And we’ll wake with those trails in the air
Track Name: In Just Such a Winter (Demo)
Beyond the glass
The isolation where we used to stay
The autumn days would wane away
And we’d light the fires

We were smoke, we were fire
We were the things we never spoke of
And the things we never learned
We were earth, frozen tight
We were the fading cold horizon
The axis and the turn

And one must roll the dice
It was in just such a winter that
It played its part
A role so small that I’ve forgotten
Those December songs
Just a push and they were gone
Track Name: Santa Irini (Demo)
Oh it was so beautiful, a journey so sublime
Sailing on the overnight, which doubled up the time
There was the champion of breathlessness, a particle of wine
Which I bought to see the journey through
And at that moment you did not decline

The sun would rise and we would set
Upon the path to then repeat behaviour
A history, a legacy reflected in the trails

A hundred thousand islanders, a hundred miles behind
Awakened to their audience, a bright fluorescent sun
A sun that shone right over us, and glanced across the sea
One that shone as if to welcome us, and given its approval we could sleep

The sun would rise and we would set
Upon the path to then repeat behaviour
A history, a legacy reflected in
The way we danced upon the sea
And recognized our liberty
So tell those others take their leave
Tell them not to cry or grieve
Or crash around in our wake
Just rest assured that we will make the shore
Track Name: One Step From Tokyo (Demo)
She strolled outside and she wore that smile
Out of the cold it’s alright
She should climb, and they say she moves
Out of the cold it’s alright

Feed, feeds the open stream
As it feeds her contacts grow
One step away from Tokyo
One step from her Berlin dream

She says that time moves faster now
More than it used to it seems
Faith renewed in a world so small
The ports are alive once again
Track Name: Screens (Demo)
Cold on the bus in the winter its January
Passengers all sitting left of the aisle
Windows are steamy, not knowing quite where we are
Sitting and thinking and counting the miles

Taking the story of LM it told the truth
Was it for this it was destined to die
Told they were right as the sentence was passed upon
Publish, be damned just for questioning why

Now there is nowhere left to go
Now there is nothing we don’t know

I don’t look at photographs
Don’t need those borders
I don’t see those movie screens
Playing to formulas of 80 years

Where are the planes in the house with the cameras?
Where are the planes in screens on the walls?
Tired of these eyes this surveillance I try to hide
Only to find we are courting it all

Now there is nowhere left to go
Now there is nothing we don’t know

I don’t look at photographs
Don’t need those borders
I don’t see those movie screens
Playing to formulas of 80 years

I don’t look at photographs
Don’t need those borderlines
Don’t look at movie screens
Playing those formulas
I don’t need that second sight
Don’t want those mediums
I don’t want astrology
Or other predictions
I don’t want those cameras
A lifestyle or surgery
I don’t want your good advice
Playing on formulas
For 80 years.

Let them see, let them see all of our moments at once
Let them see, let them see all the stars shining at once
Let them see, let them see all of the images and
Let them see, let them see every flickering screen

We will let their vision in, I’m envisioning
Track Name: Rosemary's Song (Demo)
The day will come soon and it tells
That all we lost will be returned
A gift that you never knew you gave
How I wish we had just one of those homes
That I recall so lazily
That you could play with those ghosts for me
For them
And may you always be free
Catherine’s child, such energy
Shows us how to be, happily

So don’t tell your friends at the hospital they’re not as lucky as you
I’ll come to rely on you more or less, I know it’s true
We are the future that you never asked for and you couldn’t choose
But where there is hope there is purpose
And then there is you

How we waited, all created

And I guess there is an undisclosed hope
That you will span those distances separating us all
86 years and 2000 miles
It’s quite a load for one so young
So you just do what you will

But don’t tell your friends at the hospital they’re not as lucky as you
I’ll come to rely on you more or less, I know it’s true
We are the future that you never asked for and you couldn’t choose
But where there is hope there is purpose
And then there is you

How we waited, all created
