Unreleased Song Download

“We Have Done This Before, We Will Do It Again” was one of the songs written for an album that I abandoned before writing most of the material that ended up on Chaotic Neutral. The ambitions of the initial project proved too great given that only one of the songs was under six minutes in length, the longest being 21 minutes. In the end, it would have taken months to record and would have required an immense budget. The only song initially written for that project that would eventually end up on Chaotic Neutral was Tiger By The Tail.

That said, I know there are fans out there that have asked if the song will ever be recorded for a future album or released in demo form. Given that it doesn’t fit with what I’m currently writing for my next record, I don’t want to disappoint those that liked the song but can't get their hands on it.

So, given that it’s my birthday, I’m going to do the reverse gift thing and make it available to download. 

Please keep in mind that this is a demo. It isn’t properly mixed, nor mastered. It just is what it is. 

 

We Have Done This Before, We Will Do It Again

We have done this before
and we will do it all again
the kid’s in the corner shaking and screaming
“I am the lightning that will be your undoing”
we have been here before
we have done this before
and we will do it all again

We have fought here before
we have lost here before
when the fix was on winning
there’s rats in the corn breeding and eating
the floor under your feet
all up and down your street
busting down doors and dragging them
we have been here before
we have done this before
and we will do it all again

The cross we are
the dust where we begin
the sun and the stars
the grated earth
the canyons and the cords
the rusted seraphim
the pronoun of the Lord
the grated earth

You’re body’s lying everywhere
post mortem, a warning
the victims, there are none
who forswear believing for glass and golden prisons
airships, we’re laving for somewhere
in defence of feeding the business of freedom

Shoot your birds and bees
get down on your knees
get your smile working now
well I know a place to hide you
but don’t look back unless to remind you it’s just a lie
well I know a place to hide you
