DEMO SONG #1: Corruption

Written By: Nick Jenkins (lyrics), Cam Currier, Gardy Converse, Jeremy Brogan, Natalie Hanagan

: I see the struggle every day
People trying to eat, but the systems blocking their way
I've just got to say
We've got to, save the day

I try to help the poor
I try to end the war
But you know what's in store
Four years of the orange boar

People have got to see
This world be a crumbling over thee
Taking too much, poverty
World leaders a, monarchy

CHORUS:
Whats wrong with the world that we living in
People a take, no more a giving in
The corruption a winning them
World like a synonym

To change we all need to work
One nation under god, to me seems berserk
People have just got to see
This world be a crumbling over thee

We be taking too much, call that poverty
World leaders a, monarchy
We got to change the world

CHORUS:
Whats wrong with the world that we living in
People a take, no more a giving in
The corruption a winning them
World like a synonym

I decided to end with a rhyme
People need to realize the world is, in decline
I say
Overseas money sell like the wine
World blowing up and it's in our line
I say
Take a look around and see what's in place
We got to love and appreciate all the other race-s
Working together, positivity
If you love to love, let's make this a plee

CHORUS:
Whats wrong with the world that we living in
People a take, no more a giving in
The corruption a winning them
World like a synonym

DEMO SONG #2: Dream or Reality

Written By: Nick Jenkins (lyrics), Cam Currier, Gardy Converse, Jeremy Brogan, Natalie Hanagan

: I woke up Sunday, all alone
Asked myself is this reality, am I home
So I walked on over, picked up the phone
You didn't pick up I'm all alone

I walked on over, asked her name
Told her I could be her man in this game
All it took was that exchange
Love is crazy and insane

I see you walking
I see you walking away
I'll Be ok
Never knew love was this way

CHORUS:
Is this a dream
Or Reality
A dream or reality

4 years gone by and im still in a haze
All confused call that a daze
This life I call it one big maze
Things are broken like a vase

I see you walking
I see you walking away
I'll Be ok
Never knew love was this way

CHORUS:
Is this a dream
Or Reality
A dream or reality

I don't mean to kick and whine
But I wanted to remind you I was always on time
I loved you but maybe love was blind
I can’t see right now so let's rewind
Year one
Life was following a stereotypical track
I was into you, you was into that
I was thinking to myself this might be whack
But you were beautiful I didn’t know how to act
Oh wait same thing and its year two
A similar situation just waiting for you
As I sit back I begin to think
That this relationship has reached its brink
But yet again
Its year three
Love has no happy or glee
But then I got a call my suspicions are true
This time I'll be forever here waiting for you

I see you walking
I see you walking away
I'll Be ok
Never knew love was this way

CHORUS:
Is this a dream
Or Reality
A dream or reality
