    As my guitarist Adam said: "These demo CDs are going to be so rare later on!"

    These are really hastily-mixed and Garageband-recorded (heh) demos of my soon-to-come album Young Ironsides (10 out of the final 12 tracks)

    It comes in a hand-doodled sleeve, so you know it's special.

    I bought more CDs and created a second edition of 10. Have at it.

lyrics

Every morning when the warming started I departed for the orchards
Every afternoon I'd tear the grass out by the roots and build a fortress
Strong against the wind
No one could peek in
Begin

Ants are marching and I'm watching feeling something in me like an ember
Sometimes I think in the mountains there's another me I don't remember
Living all alone
Sitting on a throne
She's grown

And one day I discovered my own breast
The fire kept behind the iron vest

Lazy days would fade as I would dabble with my fingers through the corset
Prodding at the heating that I couldn't reach unless I really forced it
And I would feel the throb
Throw back my head and sob
I'm lost

Light glints off the windows of the house and now I think I see my brother
And I put back the padlock but I can't forget the warmth beneath the covers
Will he ever know
The places where I go

The birds tell me that somewhere there is sea
And I know that I never will be free
