about

This is volume one of Salton Sea home demos. Some of these were recorded in 2012 and some in 2013.

While not all of these songs will end up on the Salton Sea debut, which we start recording in Fall 2013, a few of them will. We hope you enjoy these songs in their most raw and natural state.

Track Name: Undone (acoustic demo)
Sister sails floating by
On outstretched limb beneath shattered sky
Too much thinking could do you in
Endless thoughts has you wandering

All that I know is I can't be responsible
For all your endless stream of lies
The battles you've waged, the war's not won
Look how you've unraveled and come undone

A bird's eye view will not magnify
The differences between you and I
The lost and found is where we'll end
This game is done the cut won't mend

All that I know is I can't be responsible
For all your endless stream of lies
The battles you've waged, the war's not won
Look how you've unraveled and come undone

All that I know is I can't be responsible
For all your endless stream of lies
The battles you've waged, the war's not won
Look how you've unraveled and come undone

Track Name: Firelight (demo)
I strayed the path
Through field and grass
A maze I can't see through

A starless night
So void of light
I've lost my way to you

Firelight, firelight
Where's you're brilliant light
Firelight, firelight
Won't you guide me through this night
Girl you are my firelight
Yes you are, firelight

I dream of you
Your eyes so blue
They guide me to your soul

As Autumn nears
Those endless fears
Melt away with you

Firelight, firelight
You're so warm and bright
Take me in firelight
I won't be cold tonight
Girl you are my firelight
Yes you are firelight

Firelight, firelight
You're so warm and bright
Take me in firelight
I won't be lost tonight
Girl you are my firelight
Yes you are firelight

Track Name: Mistreated (demo)
Just when you think you've got it all wrong
you figure it all out
Someone tried to bring you down
But you'd rather fight without a fight

You've been beat down and counted out
They can never ever bring you down

There are people who will say you've lost
This world is yours now, you can't lose
They keep trying to bring you down
But you'd rather fight without a fight

Your future's here now go and show them
They can never ever bring you down

You've been beat down and counted out
They can never ever bring you down

Track Name: Who We Are (demo)
Destroy the hearts of fears and doubts
Don't let these walls close in tonight

You're waking up where you were once before
Lying there with the world at your door
And who are you to decide who we are
No one here will will decide who we are

A darkness screaming for the light
Walk to the shore to find the sun

You're waking up where you were once before
Lying there with the world at your door
And who are you to decide who we are
No one here will will decide who we are

Track Name: So When Are You Coming Back? (demo)
I read the words that she wrote to me
It made me feel alright
This old town ain't the same to me
It's got me feeling uptight

So when are you coming back?, she said
When are you coming home?
When are we gonna play that song
You're singing on the radio?
When are you coming back she said?
When are you coming back?

I read the words that she wrote to me
It made me feel alright
This old town ain't the same to me
It's got me feeling uptight

So when are you coming back?, she said
When are you coming home?
When are we gonna play that song
You're singing on the radio?
When are you coming back she said?
When are you coming back?

So when are you coming back?, she said
When are you coming home?
When are we gonna play that song
You're singing on the radio?
When are you coming back she said?
When are you coming back?
Back!
