We are releasing these demos as a tribute to our late friend and collaborator William Paton. In our final phone conversation Will and I discussed making music again together someday in the matrix. I think we both found a little comfort in that thought.

Track Name: Untitled 2 (glass yourself)
It seems that they have found us
lying in our beds
they say there is no defense
for that which lies ahead

But why should we fear

We are the kings
It's us that sets the fire
We can turn on all the lights and will

I'll rip your fucking face off
rip your face off


Eat with no lips
hear with no sound
touch with no love
see with no eyes

How does it feel to be you now?

We cure
We cure you
We move through you
We do

Take these broken angels
Take them
Take them

We see in color
We see in color now
We see in color now
We see in color now
You bleed red.
