Track Name: Alley Dogs (Demo Derby II)
What’s the difference between
Absorption & me
When the crux holds the center
The center of the sea?

The center of the beam
The center of the beam’s not
The center of you
Not the center of me
The center of the beam…
But not the center of me.

Seething on the blocks
When something comes as quite the shock;
Nowhere nuthin’ everyday
At the center of the sea.

Yeah, you’ve never had a say
And we’re all just “chunk[s] of clay,”
Nuthin’s beautiful it seems
At the center of the sea

The center of the beam
The center of the beam’s not
The center of you
Or the center of me
The center of the beam…
But not the center of me.

And if the truth were known for kindness,
Then I’d be more open-minded,
But that’s never happening
At the center of the sea

The center of the beam
The center of the beam’s not
The center of you;
Not the center of me
The center of the beam…
But not the center of me.
Track Name: Gone (Demo Derby II)
I loved to talk a-
bout all those stupid shows.

Here comes the shock, but
it matters how you go.

You've always been there:
You can't just go.
You've always been there:
You can't just go.

What does he look like?
Is everything okay?

Was it a long flight?
What am I supposed to say?

You've always been there:
You can't just go.
You've always been there:
You can't just go!

You've always been there!
You can't just go!
You've always been there!
You can't just go!

You've always been there!
You've always been there!
You can't just go!

You've always been there:
You can't just go.
You've always been there:
You can't just go.
