Track Name: Exposure (Demo)
Set off - six weeks on the road
Six changes of clothes and a chance at the front page
Staying up sober and so composed
Waking up aching, coffee and off we go

This isn't living like nothing to lose
Every song sounds like something to prove
But I'm used to taking it out on my ribcage, on the floor

Fighting off anger and apathy
Beating it down and calling her up on a rampage
And it's talk, talk, take me apart
Raptures and reveries
"Dear I'm defenseless - who would have guessed that's me?"

She said "move me" and I was moved
I never wanted to be so removed
It's true - I've taken it out on myself
Track Name: C.B.T. (Demo)
Set up! You shot me up!
Shot bullets and bows
Your make-up and clothes
Possession and pose
Prosaic and cold, I match your tone

And it's a long way out of your home
Your neck to my nose
"I think we should go"
I wouldn't say no
Protracted and slow, I keep you close

Safe till the day when I will you a way
And you're willing to take what you're offered
Pale at your post where you miss me the most
And you're sorry and sad
You could want something bad
And it's on

Get up! It's not enough
The seconds we stole
I'm losing my hold
I'm choosing my role
Backhanded and bold, I keep control

And it's a long way back to "hello"
"I thought you should know..."
"We're playing a show..."
"What if I don't go?"
Heroic and honed, I walked you home

Wrecked by a fall that you couldn't recall
And you're wanted for all that you offer
Making the most as a guest and a ghost
And you're stifled and sad
You forgot what you had
And it's gone

You can play your part so easily
And I can make it smart so reasonably
I can keep my guard so easily
And take your life apart so reasonably
I can keep my guard - so now you know

Safe till the day when I will you a way
And you're willing to take what you're offered
Pale at your post where you miss me the most
And you're sorry and sad
You could want something bad
And it's on

Have you earned me now?
Do you think that you're allowed?
You could hurt me now
(Safe till the day when you will me a way
And I'm willing to take what you offer)
We could see over and over the walls that we built
(Sorry and sad, I could want something bad
And I'm willing to take you along)
Track Name: The Coronation Show (Demo)
Under your breath
Over the phone
Out of your depth and the debts you owe
The hand you hold could make foreign nations fold

You're keeping it close
Till somebody holds you down and you tell him all you know
You're free to go

Alighting alone
Where do you go when you can't call home?
Your friends are bold to have you curtseying on coals

You write what you know, and rightly so
You reach out across the room and the conversation slows

Under your breath
Over the phone
I'm at my best and you're on your own
The hand you hold couldn't salvage what was sold

You're dressed for the throne
But somebody stole your crown at the coronation show
You won't let go
Over and below the words you chose
Track Name: One Word (Cash Hotel Version)
Take me home
There's no one I know
Suffered to stay low
Haircuts and halos

Set apart and spent
Take a hand fit to shake
A cigarette break
A minor mistake

Tonight was a neon sign with the last letter missing
A neighborhood (tied to / done in by) one word
An all-night diner closed at a quarter to twelve
A cat call called out of a cash hotel
Cut loose, and set up for a sinking spell
Six miles sick with a city smell
It died tonight

Shaking oh no
I set up the show
I set my sights low
Texas and talk shows
Better off in bed
Make a silent spit take
A fidgety fake
I'm lying awake
