about

In the summer of 2013 before we were even close to being able to play shows, we decided it'd be a good idea to try to record a few songs to see what we actually sounded like. We voted on our 4 favorites and went to our friend Chris at Black in Bluhm to help us out. We spent about two days there and this demo is the result. Feel free to download these songs for free if you like them. We've also got a few cassettes left (Mike made 50) that you can pick up from us at a show for 3 bucks.

Track Name: Heart Of Hush
I'm sorry I wasn't there when they took your heart
You've got to hang in there, this was just our start
I want to run on rooftops and dive off buildings with you
I promise I'll find Hush I'd destroy myself for you

By product of circumstance, it’s our burden to share
A common enemy, there's no shame in being scared
I want to run on rooftops and dive off buildings with you
I promise I'll find Hush I'd destroy myself for you

But if you hurt me then I’ll hurt you back
It’s a routine, we'll learn to adapt
We can survive with our limbs in tact
Oh, let’s escape from what we attract
Track Name: This Place Is Dead Anyway
I hesitate but it's still too late
You're pulling me in
I need somebody to be weak with me
and you're pulling me in

I've got an endless itch to scratch on my back
Why can't I think anymore?
Avoiding my confliction, it's an easy prediction
Now I can't sleep anymore

There's no reprieve, I choose to be naive
You're pulling me in
Don't tell a soul. No one needs to know
that you're pulling me in

I've got an endless itch to scratch on my back
Why can't I think anymore?
Avoiding my confliction, it's an easy prediction
Now I can't sleep anymore

Get me out
I don’t want to see how this’ll turn out
Track Name: Skateboarding With My Friends Never Caused Teen Pregnancy
Broken bones and broken hearts
Didn’t let you rip us apart
We were better off on our own
Now we’re better off than you

Paid no mind to play that part
Condemned to be free just like Sartre
We were better off on our own
Now we’re better off than you

Crashed and burned, but soon we learned
Satisfaction gained when you don't yearn
We were better off on our own
Now we’re better off than you

We didn’t need you.
Track Name: A Burden To This Beast
Flying away,
on a jet back to the east.
Wasting the day,
ripping dreams up by the piece.
Pretzels and plastic cups,
anxious beggar’s feast
Famished, fatigued.
I’m a burden to,
I’m a burden to this beast.

It’s cold outside,
I don’t want to go out tonight.
Nowhere to hide,
I’m stuck in an armrest fight.
Wage indentured servant,
still one of the least.
Unshackled, return.
I’m a burden to,
I’m a burden to this beast.
