Rough demo of Parasite's Hotel. This was literally the first thing I recorded as I was learning how to use Pro Tools...most of the tracks are pretty rough one-takers. I just wanted to get a feel for how the program worked.

I'm hoping to record this with my buddies in the band, and experiment with a few different ideas in regards to sonic layering.

Track Name: Parasite's Hotel (Demo)
The need in me, standing in my window
Focused on the water in my head
Folds his arms, the devil in the window
Focused on the warring in my head

Build a wall around the empty-hearted
This parasite's hotel just might give in
Tell you a secret, I heard it on the wind
You'll never win, so let's begin again

Tell you all about the lungs that shout, collapsing now
All to circumvent the time we spent alone
Breaker of the will knows better still it's mine all mine
Heart of toxic smoke, the running joke will fall in time

"Recommend you run and hide," echoes off the still collide.

Alive in the sound, chase the dragon of youth
But deaf is the eye of truth

Laid to rest, the devil in the window
Focused on the warring in my head
