DEMO SONG #1: Turmoil

Written By: Brody Belanger

You say that you gonna but I don’t believe this real
Think you need my help but I don’t believe you girl 
Can’t wait till the end and I know it won’t mend
And we come back again
We both know the deal, your heart was a steal
But now it’s revealed.

Lies being mentioned
You must want attention
You’ve been here too long
Lies being mentioned
You must want attention
This wasn’t my plan
Yeah you’ve got the wrong man

You think I’m there for you 
But I'm so far away
You make it seem like there’s nothing that really changed
We talk for a bit 
Decide that it’s you and I
Then you go and put me on everybody’s mind 
the way that you treat me is not what you say
you already know that my tempers are frayed
i know you cant help it its all just the same
but you need to put this up in a frame

Lies being mentioned
You must want attention
You’ve been here too long
Lies being mentioned
You must want attention
This wasn’t my plan
Yeah you’ve got the wrong man (repeat)

DEMO SONG #2: Circles

Written By: 

Caspian Benedict-Murphy, Brayden Shaw, Brody Belanger

voices getting lighter

never felt prouder

i've forgotten to fly

but i'm not gonna cry

i will get better

like the birds of a feather

theres no need to tether

i’m not the cow made for leather
