This is a collection of recordings made from the winter of 2014 to the spring of 2016. It's a lot better than the first demo I did, in regards to both writing and production. Most of the songs are pretty good with the highlights being "Circadian Cycle," "Quiet's Theme," "Euphoria," and "Manipulator." The album is called "Moderate Rock" because I feel that most of the songs fall into this category, plus I wanted to give a simple title that suited the music. It is probably the last few songs I'm putting out that will have this sort of alt-rock music direction, at least for the time being.

Track Name: Euphoria
When I'm walking down to your place
Down the foggy way
I seem to have misplaced
My ticket to the bay
Back down on the sidewalk
The children go to class
Learning things like Econ
They come home through the grass

Walk home in the sunlight
On a busy street
I'm feeling things are all right
Just how they should be

See the cars that drive by
On the dampened road
We haven't said our goodbyes
Nothing left to show
Clouds with silver lining
Cool mist in the air
Wrapped up in your blankets
Live without a care

So what are we doing here
Let's drive today
So what are we doing here
Let's drive
Track Name: Quiet's Theme
The words you’ll never know
Left on her, still
And, as we all know
It goes downhill

And she’s thought it through and through
She’s walking out on you
And you don't have a clue

You realize you look so fine and now you’re mine to my surprise
I guess that’s fine, now you’re mine but I don’t know my left from right

Write yet a new verse
But it all sounds the same
And as we all know
It’s all a waste

And you’re giving up on me
And you throw away your key
And you’re living in your dreams

You realize you look so fine but now you’re mine to my surprise
I guess that’s fine, now you’re mine but I don’t know my wrong from right
When you walk into my mind I wonder if it’s your design
You realize you look so fine...
Track Name: Sleazy Queen
She’s running the wire thin, that’s all
And I don’t care
She’s my sleazy queen, that’s all
The whole affair

And if you need me
I’m in my bedroom
Doing nothing
As always

She's all I really need
It’s such a shame
You know I know that you just
Walk away
For in this rotting town
Who's to blame?
When the going get's too tough
It's just the same
Track Name: Circadian Cycle
I get up at 9
OK that’s a lie
I get up at 3
What’s wrong with me

She takes off her clothes
That's cool I suppose
I'm living the dream
Or so it would seem

Weeds and garbage fill the whole parking lot
I sit, accumulating too much thought

I think I want to try and change my life
But I lack the motivation and the time
They say I sleep too much, under eat and such
I’m never really in the right state of mind

They’re at it again
that girl and my friend
I try not to hear
I try not to care

The people keep themselves as they go
I see them act this way through my window

I wish that I
Would get up at 9
Track Name: Way Out
I’ve been searching for a new way out
Way out
History gives me much doubt
Way out

Years of earnest/endless* waiting
Led to irony
All my bagged belongings
For all the world to see
Way out

He can help me to my impending doom
Way out
Broken bottles and a tab for two
Way out
or three
or four
or five
or six

Watch me as I fall here
Elegance and all
When you’re getting angry
You happen to enthrall
Way out

Years of careful researching
Led from harmony
All my nervous nothings
For all the world to see
Way out
Track Name: Have Fun
Driving
In my car
And I don't know where to go

Walking
Down my street
And I don't know where to go

We go see everyone
We're dancing in the sun

We have fun

Bodies
Down my street
And I don't know where to go

Barely
Make ends meat
'Cause I don't know where to go

They march on into town
We start a riot

You wake up next to me
What is reality
I'm not the only one
Got nowhere left to run

We had fun
But we're done
Have fun
Track Name: Lovesick Fashion
Lovesick fashion's gone main attraction
I don't understand how this started to happen
How will I get home

Miniature metal and the soccer field glow
With the golden tree leaves and the white powder snow
How will I get home

White noise and empty space
White noise perpetrates

Books and books, and boxes aplenty
The view from my window shows there's amany
How will I get home

White noise and empty space
Fills the void until it all comes to naught
Track Name: Manipulator
You feeling lucky, is that right?
Because I don’t think that I can stand another night
But you think that I like it

It’s all a joke, but you don’t seem to care
You prance around in your underwear
And you think that I like it

The sad and lonely, one and only picture
Painted by your unfamiliar gestures
I told you that we would never surrender

You’ve faded way too far so you can’t see
Just like your personality
But you think that I like it

So what’s the hurry? Why the fuss?
Is the flashy dress a definite must?
Cause you think that I like it

Ladies and gents, we’ve found our volunteer
The lonely girl full of herself draws near
I told you that we would never fear

I’ve said it once and I said it five times over
You’re nothing but a sad and confused user
I told you that we would never surrender
You waited for me but you’re never sober
I told you that we would never surrender
