Extremely rough demo. We basically recorded this in a few hours in our buddie's basement, so I apologize for the quality.

We're going to record this professionally sometime this month though, and I'll update this thread accordingly.

Feels kind of like Three Days Grace. Not bad.

"Redefining 'Rational'"

Sunlight like radiation
Misery for hydration
Even bad seeds have needs, even bad seeds have needs
This growth undermines everything
This plant bears no fruit
Wouldn't it be better to uproot?
To end the suffering

Why oh why
Do you continue wasting time?
He can't be saved, he can't be saved
He's up and lost his mind

So leave it to the wind
To clear up the dust
Cause when we fall
There'll be nothing left of us
It makes no difference
It's nothing new
Ashes, ashes
Even children know better
Better than you

Why oh why
Do you continue wasting time?
He can't be saved, he can't be saved
He's up and lost his mind

Why oh why
Do you continue wasting time?
He can't be saved, he can't be saved
He's up and lost his mind

And that's the problem
You've fucking lost it

Why oh why
Do I continue wasting time?
I can't be saved, I can't be saved
I've up and lost my mind

Why oh why
Do I continue wasting time?
I can't be saved, I can't be saved
Keep telling yourself this lie

And that's the problem
I've fucking lost it

---

A song about making bad decisions, perpetuating bad habits, and making excuses; to the point of near self-destruction.

"The Leech - Part 2"

I'll waste another metaphor
To convey how much I loathe
The breaking of the sanctity of this marriage
Truth is the groom, you are its betrothed
I'll waste another moment
Trying not to end up wasting time
So do me a favor
Quit wasting mine, quit wasting

My heart pumps the blood of a monster now
Your pulse stopped before you hit the ground

Now that you've hit rock bottom
Have you taken the time to map the streets?
Since you'll never find your way out
You might as well enjoy the scenery
Don't you find it ironic?
That your highest point could be so low
I kind of find it pathetic
That you almost took me with you

My heart pumps the blood of a monster now
Your pulse stopped before you hit the ground

Oh, the things we tell ourselves
To help us sleep at night
None of them will help you
None of them can help

Oh, the things we tell ourselves
To help us sleep at night
None of them will help you
Because the undead never sleep

You're dead to me
You're dead to me

---

Just an extension of the themes of the first song.

"Coast is Clear"

It's hard to even tread water
When your past is an anchor pulling you down to its depths
It makes no sense, I confess
That I care too much
I'm more desperate than I let on
I've swallowed swords and drank poison
Just to compensate for this
Mistake
But it's time to
It's time to
Regurgitate

Cause my stomach's too weak for this
Does that mean I'm seasick?

I'll swim to avoid another shipwreck
I'll swim even if I end up dead
The coast is clear
The coast is clear
Too bad the shore's so far away

The waters start to get rough
Somebody throw me a line
Enough is enough
But drowning
Isn't the worst case
I'm sure I saw sharks that saw me as bait

Now I'm just bait for all of these horrible things
I can only hope
They chew before they swallow

I'll swim to avoid another shipwreck
I'll swim even if I end up dead
The coast is clear
The coast is clear
Too bad the shore's so far away

I'll meet you at the shoreline
When I wash up dead
I'll meet you at the shoreline
That exists in my head

I'll swim to avoid another shipwreck
I'll swim even if I end up dead
The coast is clear
The coast is clear
Too bad the shore's just in my head

---

It's about letting guilt from mistakes you've made pile up and get the best of you.

"Forming Glaciers"

Are you still listening?
Or has the frost taken its toll
On my voice
Preventing understanding for the umpteenth time
I guess that's just my way
Forming glaciers with the words I say
To save myself

We've been at this for way too long
This antarctic love
She'll be happy when I'm gone
Antarctic love

I'm not listening
To a thing you say
As you slur you speech
The warmth fades
Cause the frost has taken its toll
And if you believe everything you're told
Just know that you've grown cold
To save yourself

We've been at this for way too long
This antarctic love
I'll be happy when you're gone
Antarctic love

Abandon hope for this
This shameless icebound sin
Let's call it quits
Because it's not worth it

This antarctic love

---

This is basically about wanting to leave a relationship that's become stale; and in order to avoid breaking it to them, you treat them like **** in order to get them to leave you. Sadly enough, this is how I tried leaving my first girlfriend.

"Manipulator"

We believe in nothing
It's all in their heads
Our faith has been tested
Our patience, spent
Unpleasantly surprised
When our prayers were not received
Days, weeks, months
Not a blessing to be seen

Manipulator
Where do you find the time of day?
Destroying hearts and minds
While you rob them blind
Of their hope and sanity
Do the flames burn?
As your world goes up in flames
Destroying hearts and homes
To the metronome of this symphony

If there's anything I know
It's better to be faithless
If your love for us burns greater than hell
Then why does it exist?
You're free to question loyalty
But we're not allowed to question your ways
Maybe if you'd show your face
We wouldn't need faith

Manipulator
Where do you find the time of day?
Destroying hearts and minds
While you rob them blind
Of their hope and sanity
Do the flames burn?
As your world goes up in flames
Destroying hearts and homes
To the metronome of this symphony

People say I lack conviction
I think they lack incentive
Such ignorance
Such bliss

---

A song questioning the existence of religion and the belief in a higher power.

Listening to the video you posted, I have something to say: The music seems to be drowning out your(?) voice a little bit.

I don't know jack about music, or if a proper recording would fix this.

But it's pretty neat.

Part of that is the volume levels weren't adjusted properly and that the quality isn't the greatest. I'm still learning how to project too, which could also be why it sounds like I fade in and out during pitch changes. It probably would've helped if I'd done more than one vocal take, haha.

Personally I think I sound a bit flat and slightly out of key in this but the instrumentals sound pretty good, especially for being recorded on Garage Band. I absolutely love my drummer.

Actually, you're ranging sharp in your lower range.

Also, you have a very good voice but I can tell you're not supporting right. You have to use your diaphragm to push your air out properly- what you're doing is singing in your throat, which gives your voice a nasal quality and makes you pull back in your high range.

But I really liked the demo- you're right, the instrumentation is great. It reminds me a little of Panic at the Disco. All in all, really good. I'm critiquing your voice because you self-criticized and were practically begging for it :) but I can tell y'all have a lot of talent.

I swear you can learn anything on Youtube now. I'm finally singing correctly and using my diaphragm to control the airflow. It's no wonder I found it difficult to project.

Thanks for the advice Moose, it helped tons!

"Vices"

Thank you for the time spent
Thank you for the ride
Thank you for the wreckage
That has become my life
I should blame a thousand others
For the stains that you have made
Condemn all of them like Jesus
Just so that you can be saved

If sarcasm's an art form
I think I have it made

These vices
Won't help you find meaning
When you dance in the dark
Just know the feeling is fleeting
This is just a phase
This is just a phase you say

I've always had this hunch
That you put people on strings
Abandon everyone that loved you
After taking everything
Feign selflessness
Pretend you're heaven-sent
Guilt-trip those who see the signs
Get inside their head
Start the damaging
And make-believe it's justified

Tell yourself that lie,
Girl tell yourself that lie

These vices
Won't help you find meaning
When you dance in the dark
Just know the feeling is fleeting
This is just a phase
This is just a phase you say

These vices
Won't help you find meaning
When you dance in the dark
Just know the feeling is fleeting
This is just a phase
This is just a phase you say

**** you for the time spent
**** you for the ride
**** you for the wreckage
That has become my life

This isn't just a phase
This isn't just a phase

We just got done recording a shitload of demos (including a much better version of the previous demo) with the person we plan on recording our album with. They will be posted in the very near future.

Also, after talking to our producer and asking him for his opinion, we've decided to make the song "Manipulator" our first single.

It'll be recorded in early July once we've saved up the money.

The past few months have been pretty awesome, but a few weeks ago I ended up leaving my band. I've been really busy, and music just isn't my top priority. That being said, my friends have kept the band alive and this is a teaser of their first song.

I'm quit proud of them, haha.

I'm back and umm... I recorded some music. After almost a year and several line up changes, it's finally here. There will probably be more songs to come, but with my track record don't hold your breath.

Yeah, this is pretty wicked cool, bro.

No seriously, I like it.

Kind of reminds me of Dashboard Confessional, in a good way.
