Track Name: To Live is to Dance Vaudeville in an Awful Shit-Show (unreleased home demo from Life is the Meatgrinder that Sucks In All Things)
Life is a plane crashed nose down into the hot earth. Life is addiction and fading dreams and forced compromise.

Life is a hand to pull you up in the pit. It’s the easy days after a long winter illness. It’s the record that saved you when all you wanted to do was sleep.

To live is to dance vaudeville in an awful shit-show. To live is to know ruin and to seek shelter in ruins. To live is to believe in love (and to search for it) while all signs point to tragedy.
Track Name: They Will Fester (unreleased home demo, Life is the Meatgrinder that Sucks In All Things)
Sometimes in the morning your defenses
will fall away and the awful thoughts
will come back to you. You will try to
push them off but they will stick inside
you like a barbed stinger and they will
fester. They will expand and they will
bloat with your water in them. They will
thrive on you. They will flourish in the
dark places you run from.
