Track Name: Nevermore - B-side
Fifteen years since I’ve been
Alive and well
Too much time in the
Heart of hell
too many pennies in this wishing well
too many lies that you had to
you had to tell

Seven years I’ve been
in and out with you
too much time not knowing
what to do
Too much heartache
but now I’m through
too many lies I had to
tell to you

I don’t ever want to
feel the same
I just wanted to
feel something
I don’t ever want to
see your eyes
nevermore have to
hear your lies

1 more year and I’ll be
alive again
too much time as a
man of tin
too much time not knowing
where I’ve been
nothing left but to
begin again

I don’t ever want to
feel the same
I just wanted to
feel something
I don’t ever want to
see your eyes
nevermore have to
hear your lies

I don't think that I
ever really thought it was true
what started out as a dream,
slowly turned into you
but then I woke up
and realized we were through

I don’t ever want to
feel the same
I just wanted to
feel something
I don’t ever want to
see your eyes
nevermore have to
hear your lies
Track Name: 4AM - DEMO
It’s 4 in the morning
chasing sleep again
my heart was broken
now I’m on the mend
or so I thought

All of this room now
makes me feel so strange
more than I’m used to
but that all will change
or so I thought

Hold me down
til the shakes are gone
take my pulse
wonder what I’m on
hold my hand
tell me all is well

You know I’m addicted
when I miss the pain
Feeling so hollow
just this husk remains
blown in the wind

Now you can trace me
like lines in my arm
heart on a keychain
like some lucky charm
blown in the wind

Play this hand again
I know I can win
All my chips are in
now this game can end
Track Name: Steven - B-side
Steven was the first of us to drive
yeah he was cool
he would scream and spin his tires
back behind the school

weekends we’d slip away
and run around the town
Steven where are you today
are you still around

Steven my friend
what you doing
what kind of dreams
are you pursuing
They picked you up
and then they knocked you
they knocked you down

steven he played the drums
while I played guitar
we had a band in school
we knew we’d both be stars

but then you fell off
when you got a girl
and then you knocked her up
changed your whole damn world

Steven my friend
what you doing
what kind of dreams
are you pursuing
They picked you up
and then they knocked you
they knocked you down

Steven dropped out of my life
somewhere around 25
Don’t know where he is now
or even if he’s alive
I sometimes think of those kids
that we grew up and left behind
they are still part of who we are
in our hearts and minds

Steven my friend
what you doing
what kind of dreams
are you pursuing
They picked you up
and then they knocked you
they knocked you down
Track Name: Nothing - DEMO
I don’t like you when you’re drunk,
‘cause that’s when you speak your mind
time after time it’s all the same,
it’s a wonder I even see you in the corner
pouting ‘til you’re turning blue
Your innuendos don’t escape me
as I run away from you

You don’t understand
Like you think you do
You don’t wanna hear
What I’m tellin’ you

You don’t like me when I’m stuck
In a rut, lost track again,
In the end it’s not your plan
And you know you cannot
Stand me in the corner,
Got me on the ropes again,
If I had a friend to throw it in,
Maybe this could end

You don’t understand
Like you think you do
You don’t wanna hear
What I’m tellin’ you
You don’t wanna know
I want nothing to do with you
Track Name: Uncertain Times - DEMO
You look at me like you expect a reply
I look away to avoid another lie
What can I do now, that hasn’t been tried

A simple life only takes you so far
With mouths to feed, it makes it so hard
Come all this way just to go back to the start

I feel so useless like I’m letting you down
Looking for work, but there’s none to be found
Cursing existence in this one-stoplight town

You’re holding me in the highest regard
With all that’s happening I’m laying down my cards
No one knows what to expect in these uncertain times
I don’t know what’s happening in these uncertain times

I’m getting down, wondering how to get by
And then I hear about a friend who might die
Is it for him, or myself that I cry?

Sometimes we forget to remember today
It’s so easy to let life get in the way
So pick yourself up, and listen to me say

We’re never guaranteed another chance
So while I’ve got two feet I’m gonna dance
No one knows what to expect in these uncertain times
I don’t know what’s happening in these uncertain times
No one knows what to expect in these uncertain times

Guess we’ll make the best of these uncertain times
