about

Every song on this demo was recorded on an iPhone exactly 10 feet away from the performers. If anything sounds weird about these recordings, it's probably Jesse's fault.

Track Name: AFRAID
Jesse: Jebus
Chandler: *Fucks around*
Jesse: I'm getting good at that
Alaska: Alright

1-2-3-4

I am afraid of the things in my head
I am afraid of the things under my bed
I am afraid of the things in my closet
I am afraid of so many things

I am scared; I am petrified
I am afraid; I am afraid

I am afraid of complex equations
I am afraid of intense situations
I am afraid of my own emotions
I am afraid of so many things

I am scared; I am petrified
I am afraid; I am afraid

I am afraid that I won't make it through the week
Alaska: *fucks up the lyric*
I am afraid that this day will kill me
I am afraid of so many things

I am scared; I am petrified
I am afraid; I am afraid
I am afraid
Track Name: Humble Land
I was hungry and you took away all of my food
I was thirsty and the water you took that away too
I was a stranger in your house
I might as well just have been a fucking louse

Self-righteous American, I hope someday you will understand
It's not the foreigners who are ruining your humble land.
It's the men in the ivory towers who deal with the living and dead
Those are the ones to fear instead

I was hungry and you ate up all of my food
I was thirsty and the water you poisoned that too
I was a stranger and you never, ever let me in
But where the fuck should I begin?

Self-righteous American, I hope someday you will understand
It's not the foreigners who are ruining your humble land.
It's the men in the ivory towers who deal with the living and dead
Those are the ones to fear instead

I was hungry and you took away all of my food
I was thirsty and the water you took that away too
I was a stranger in your house
I might as well just have been a fucking louse

Self-righteous American, I hope someday you will understand
It's not the foreigners who are ruining your humble land.
It's the men in the ivory towers who shove their wives into their beds
Those are the ones to fear instead
Track Name: Skin Condition
Chandler: Gold Bond; Nurture Your Skin!

Skinny wrists; fragile lips
Cold breeze on my wet skin
My flesh melts, I am barren
No protection from your dead expression

I am selfish
I am selfless
I know nothing
I know nothing of myself

I create nothing but a breathless sigh
I am nothing I will never die
I see you slowly drowning
I don't know you but you're always frowning

I am selfish
I am selfless
I know nothing
I know nothing of myself
I am selfish
I am selfless
I know nothing
I know nothing of myself
I know nothing but myself
Track Name: Burn Me Alive
It's hard enough to feel so pointless.
It's hard enough to feel like nothing's gonna end.
I see the news and I feel so sick.
I wanna drive my car straight through this bend.

I know a place where we can hide;
Where we can feel so safe inside;
Where we can love ourselves tonight.
I hope they do not burn it down.
I hope they don't burn me alive.

It's hard enough to feel this happen.
It's hard enough to feel this swallow you up whole.
I fucking hate those crosses burning.
I fucking hate seeing my friends become just names upon the wall.

I know a place where we can hide;
Where we can feel so safe inside;
Where we can love ourselves tonight.
I hope they do not burn it down.
I hope they don't burn me alive.

I know a place where we can hide;
Where we can feel so safe inside;
Where we can love ourselves tonight.
I hope they do not burn it down.
I hope they don't burn me alive.
I hope I can see you around.
Don't let them fucking take you alive.
