Track Name: Man That I Am (Demo)
God I was so ugly inside
I was looking for a good place to hide
On the edge of the bed in the morning coming down
From a cocaine high

I was begging you not to go
Cuz I didn't want to be alone
It was another in a long line of too many nights
I could get so low

Set it in stone
This man that I am
My flesh and bones
I've got blood on my hands

Mary, can I stay the night
Yeah I promise me and D won't find
But I'm one drink away from forgetting that I am
Too drunk to drive

There's a party down the street again
Yeah the party around here never ends
Now I'm the only one awake with the shakes and a smoke
And it's 6 am

Set it in stone
This man that I am
My flesh and bones
I've got blood on my hands

Well behold on the streets there's no cars
And it's long after they close the bars
And the song that I play on repeat to come down
Is The Prettiest Star

I can hear the birds start to sing
A song that is not welcoming
And the garbage truck sounds like my head getting crushed
In a rusted machine

Set it in stone
This man that I am
My flesh and bones
I've got blood on my hands

Say it ain't so
This man that I am
My flesh and bones
I've got blood on my hands
Track Name: Light In The Window (Demo)
Yard dogs howling
Calling out
To anyone that'll listen
Long lost brothers
Out in the dark
The black and winding distance
Gas lights on
And in the rearview mirror
I see nothing
I just see nothing
Oh but I'm coming home
I'm chasing the glow
Of the candle you got
Burning in the window

You got a light in the window
Light in the window for me
It's gonna carry me home
You'll see

Vision blurs
As I take another turn
Are those headlights
Or something stranger
I lost track of the miles
Lost track of the towns
Lost track of the time
Since I saw you
Truck stop halo
Is a pulling me in
Like a siren
In the middle of the ocean
The fog and the rain
Yeah it's heavy as a chain
Round my neck
As I go through the motions

You got a light in the window
Light in the window
Light in the window for me
It's gonna carry me home
You'll see
Track Name: Big Bad Wolf (demo)
Big Bad Wolf (final lyrics)

Take me to the woods
Tell me I'm no good
Love me anyway
Tell me you need me
Let me be your prey
Take me to the woods
Tell me I'm ok

Be the big bad wolf
I'll be your little red riding hood
What sharp teeth you have
Buried in my throat
Caught up in your trap
Be my big bad wolf
I'll be your little red riding hood

Don't be gentle
Don't tell lies to keep me safe
I'm not scared of what you're
Hiding in this place
No I'm not afraid

Find me in the night
Whisper sweet nothings
Like howling at the moon
Midnight is coming
I'll wait up for you
Find me in the night
Whisper everything

Don't be gentle
Don't tell lies to keep me safe
I'm not scared of what you're
Hiding in this place
No I'm not afraid

Meet me in the woods
Tell me it's over
I'll end up like you
Fury and fire
What could a bad wolf do
