A new demo I'm working on for an upcoming EP release. At the risk of sounding "emo", my life's pretty much gone to pot at the moment and all is crazy, so when I've actually found the time to write, this is one song I liked best from them.


Showing Off My Skeleton

All prospect of happiness has been ripped out from my eyes
Though I still can't find a reaction to what some have considered lies
I've been pouring heart and soul out like a cheap hourglass bulb
Only to have it flipped back and ignored like a second in time (or a second time)

But that's all it is to you - it's just time
That's all it is to you - it's just time

But not this time

Sticks and stones can't break my bones
But your words they can leave me so alone
And mixed up and jumbled words were never my forte
So I never had the courage to ask for you to try and stay away

It's just, I'm still afraid that an answer can't be let passed your lips
But seeing you question yourself so much is enough to test my wits
Though I confide you will still hide every intention of yours inside
I think about how you handle it and if I can handle you (and how you handle me)

But all I am to you - I'm just fine
Is all I am to you really fine?

Well not this time

Sticks and stones can't break my bones
But your words they can leave me so alone
And I'm stuck like a broken record singing the same old songs
Hoping that your ignorance will lead you to sing along

So with your head in the ground and my heart in the clouds
I'm not back to earth yet to figure this out
So bury your head and shut your eyes
With your hands on your ears
But can you say goodbye?

Knock knock, who's there?
It's heartbreak, my old and dear friend
I suppose that's better than fate telling me that this is the end
And with a pen I can vent
Working out and writing out every piece of false intent
And with prose I can close
Any door pray you won't kick it down from being out in the cold

Sticks and stones can't break my bones
But your words they can leave me so alone
Your motives can't be caught out if the hook wasn't thrown
So I know now I'm strong enough to do this on my own
