Track Name: Ricochet Man (demo)
Caught in the ricochet
Of my intentions
Does it ease your pain
To know that I don't blame myself

We're both caught
In the same crime
But I escaped without a scratch
So how can any blame be mine

You don't know what it's like
Being a guy like me

And I don't want to see you crying
But I don't want to take the blame
I would love to make it right
Oh if only I had your shame

I see you're unsatisfied but
I have nothing else to say
You want restitution
And I'm at a loss for words

Hey ricochet man

Stuck in a bitter world
Of my invention
And things will always stay the same
As long as I don't blame myself

You're at the wrong place
At the wrong time
I know I really wronged your world
But everything is right in mine

You are alone
In your pain

And I don't want to see you crying
But I don't want to take the blame
I would love to make it right
Oh if only I had your shame

I see you're unsatisfied but
I have nothing else to say
You want restitution
And I'm at a loss for words

Hey ricochet man
Listen up

No heart
No demonstration
Of basic
Human compassion

No fear
No anticipation
Of well deserved
Retribution

I see you're unsatisfied but
I have nothing else to say
You want restitution
And I'm at a loss for words

Hey ricochet man
Track Name: Beacon (demo)
See the young man take a chance
The old life he will throw away
And take it into his hands
Start bearing all the weight

His friends advise him kindly
There's no castle in the clouds
No emerald city waiting
It's sane to harbour doubts

Please understand why
I can't stay here
I see the future
And I have to keep moving on

Please understand why
I can't be here
The soul leads
Until it's broken

See the old man wondering down the street
We all think he's crazy
He doesn't know where he's going
Or the end he's bound to meet

He never answers questions
He could never really explain
The stars within his universe
Or the beacon in his brain

Please understand why
I can't stay here
I see the future
And I have to keep moving on

Please understand why
I can't be here
The soul leads
Until it's broken

Falling down
But not falling apart
I hear voices in this empty room
Urging me to start

From here
Without fear
And I know better than to leave myself behind
Follow me

It's fight or flight
Towards the beacon in the night and
Destiny feels heavy in my hands

Out of control
And I won't complain
It's so big you can't contain
You just can't contain

Please understand why
I can't be here
The soul leads
Until it's broken
Track Name: Perfect Machine (demo)
The day I left you behind
Is still a scar on my mind
A mark I won't forget

If I convince you to stay
Would we start paving the way
To nice mistakes we won't regret

She said
You left a lot undone
The world won't stop for anyone

Take me away
Before we run out of time
This time

I just don't work without you
You just don't work without me
We'll come together
Like a perfect machine

And we'll keep on running
Strain the system
We'll run until we both fall apart

Then we'll pick up all the pieces
They all amount to something
Better than it was from the start

You and me
A perfect machine
A perfect machine

I keep confusing my words
You know I'm no good at this
I'm not sure what I need to say

I just can't maintain this way
I've got to figure it out
Why things break down when you're away

She said
Hey what are you thinking
Leaving me here while I'm shaking
I've got some things I need to get out

You drive the demons from me
You help to keep me clean
We fit together
Like a perfect machine

And we'll keep on running
Strain the system
We'll run until we both fall apart

Then we'll pick up all the pieces
They all amount to something
Better than it was from the start

You and me
A perfect machine
A perfect machine
With precision fit
Always running clean

All of us are dying
Might be the only thing that's true
So I won't waste my time
My time with you
My time with you
