Got most of my gear working again so I can once more put a little more effort into my recordings now than just voice and guitar. Huzzah! Just excuse the shitty hand claps. Claps are bloody hard to record without them sounding like a dripping tap. Or maybe I'm just shit at clapping...

Still a demo, feel free to give me any feedback. I write folk punk music so I listed this under punk seeing as such an option is not available. Nor is folk strangely enough.


I wish I were
I wish I were the perfect being
Well at least
In regards to my understanding
Of the word
Best described as imperfection
Oh it's absurd
But none more worse than a fucked reflection
Of the world
That we live beside and love
The one we hurt
Because our guts can't get enough
Waste from the Earth
Our minds don't touch the thought of dying
I'm guilty as hell
I escape myself but at least I'm trying

To build a truce between our
Ignorance and raging fires
But I can't be a part of this
When I'm not alive enough
To speak of havens and bliss
My brain is dead and won't get any better
A piano
Plays a song of
In the key of
A drink like bourbon and sin

I wish I were
I wish I were an airship pilot
But the height
Scares the hell outta me I'm just no flyer
I'm hoping now
That lightning will strike away frustration
Oh it hurts like hell
I just need a word or a phrase to explain it

So I'll choke on my inability
To be the all impressive
Hero that you'll talk about and praise
Because my flaws are nothing
Oh hell... I'll just wait for it to come
I'll put it off with everything
A piano
Plays a song of
In the key of
A drink like bourbon and sin

Put the knives away
Save 'em for a different game
You are no being of evil
You're a being of change
And it's not your fault they leave
You care way to much you see
'Cause they don't know what they want
And they don't know what they need

Oh we all could be
Oh we all could be
Oh we all could be
Oh we all could be milestones for the weak...

.., Oh we all could be milestones while we still breathe


I thought this was pretty good! Reminded me of Barenaked Ladies a little. I thought the use of instruments was very well done and I rather liked your claps. Good quality for a demo as well, very nice work.
