    Homecoming (Minutes to Midnight Demo)

    Instrumental

    Points of Authority (Demo)

    Forfeit the game
    Before somebody else takes you out of the frame
    And puts your name to shame
    Cover up your face
    You can't run the race
    The pace is too fast
    You just won't last

    You love the way
    I look at you
    While taking pleasure in the awful things you put me through
    You take away
    If I give in
    My life, my pride is broken

    Forfeit the game
    Before somebody else takes you out of the frame
    And puts your name to shame
    Cover up your face
    You can't run the race
    The pace is too fast
    You just won't last

    Forfeit the game
    Before somebody else takes you out of the frame
    And puts your name to shame
    Cover up your face
    You can't run the race
    The pace is too fast
    You just won't last

    I won't believe
    A word you say
    I'm cut to pieces by the sound of every breath you take
    Swimming through a sea of hurt
    My life, my pride is stronger

    Forfeit the game
    Before somebody else takes you out of the frame
    And puts your name to shame
    Cover up your face
    You can't run the race
    The pace is too fast
    You just won't last

    It's time to sink or swim
    It's time to sink or swim
    It's time to sink or swim
    To see who gets scared when the lights go dim
    It's time to sink or swim
    (No)
    It's time to sink or swim
    (No)
    It's time to sink or swim
    (No)
    To see who gets scared when the lights go dim
    (No)

    Forfeit the game
    Before somebody else takes you out of the frame
    And puts your name to shame
    Cover up your face
    You can't run the race
    The pace is too fast
    You just won't last

    Forfeit the game
    Before somebody else takes you out of the frame
    And puts your name to shame
    Cover up your face
    You can't run the race
    The pace is too fast
    You just won't last

    Clarity (Minutes to Midnight Demo)

    Instrumental

    Asbestos (Minutes to Midnight Demo)

    Don’t start with the ugly part, don’t end with the things that will make them want to walk away
    Tune in at the din again, another price ain't cheap but somebody’s gonna have to pay
    Oh yes, you can only guess, what it is, what it was, don't remember what I had in mind
    Shotgunning on a joy ride, coming down the block, half-cocked nearly half the time

    Give it back, give it back, give it back, g-g-give it back, sing it

    One time for the words divine, and two times for the things that you hope you never have to say
    Three scenes in a dead man’s dream, and the girls tell the boys that they better fucking run away
    Live it up, or g-g-give it up, turn it up, tune it out, let it rhyme with the other line
    Shotgunning on a joy ride, coming down the block, half-cocked nearly all the time

    Give it back, give it back, give it back, g-g-give it back, sing it


    Bunker (Minutes to Midnight Demo)

    Instrumental

    So Far Away (Unreleased 1998)

    Save me now from this mess that I've created
    All The souls have gone and I'm stranded here with doubt and fear alone
    Tell me how I'm at fault for all this madness
    I don't know what's wrong, but I cannot help but try to push it

    So Far Away
    In so deep and inside of me
    So Hard to say
    I don't want to say it anyway

    Save me now I'm the mess I have created
    And my soul has gone and for some reason all I do is push it

    So Far Away
    In so deep and inside of me
    So Hard to say
    I don't want to say it anyway

    So far away

    It's so far away
    In so deep and inside of me
    So Hard to say
    I don't want to say it anyway

    So Far Away
    In so deep and inside of me
    So Hard to say
    I don't want to say it anyway

    Pepper (Meteora Demo)

    Instrumental

    Debris (Minutes to Midnight Demo)

    Listen, my blood feels like it’s sitting still in my veins
    My motivation is gone before it even came
    Today and yesterday it both seem the same
    And no matter how I try I just can’t change
    Give me one reason I should go outside
    Everything will be the same no matter how what I try
    Some people will live and some people will die
    Some people will build their whole life on a lie
    I used to blame you for the things that I thought you would say
    So now I can’t blame you for going away
    Cause these memories are the blood beating under my skin
    Repeating the same thoughts again and again

    Again and again
    Said we couldn’t last long enough for be strong enough
    Again and again
    Said our voices weren’t loud enough and we’ve had enough because

    We want our future back
    We want our own mistakes
    To take our own path
    We want to do it again

    Again and again
    Said we couldn’t last long enough or be strong enough
    Again and again
    Said our voices weren’t loud enough and we’ve had enough because

    We want our future back
    We want our own mistakes
    To take our own path
    We want to do it again

    Again and again
    Said we couldn’t last long enough or be strong enough
    Again and again
    Said our voices weren’t loud enough and we’ve had enough because

    We want our future back
    We want our own mistakes
    To take our own path
    We want to do it again

    Ominous (Meteora Demo)

    Instrumental

    Forgotten (Demo)

    From the top to the bottom
    Bottom to top I stop
    At the core I've forgotten
    In the middle of my thoughts
    Taken far from my safety
    Storm bright in the sky
    The sun will escape me
    So why did I try
    From the top to the bottom
    Bottom to top I stop
    At the core I've forgotten
    In the middle of my thoughts
    Taken far from my safety
    Storm bright in the sky
    The sun will escape me
    So why did I try

    From the thread to the needle, middle to end
    When skies cock back and shock that which couldn't defend
    The rain then sends dripping acidic questions
    Forcefully, the power of suggestion
    Then with the eyes tightly shut, looking thought the rust and rotten dust
    A spot of light floods the floor
    And pours itself upon a world of pretend
    The eyes ease open and its dark again

    From the top to the bottom
    Bottom to top I stop
    At the core I've forgotten
    In the middle of my thoughts
    Taken far from my safety
    Storm bright in the sky
    The sun will escape me
    So why did I try

    In a minute you'll find me
    Eyes burn me up
    You say you'll never forget me
    But the lies have piled up

    Moving all around
    Screaming of the ups and downs
    Pollution manifested in perpetual sound
    And as the wheels go round the sunset creeps past the street lamps, cars, chain links, and concrete
    A window then grows and captures the eye
    Prys out yellow light as it passes it by
    A small black figure sits in front of a box
    Inside a box a rock with the needles on top
    Nothing stops in this land of the pain
    The sane lose not knowing they were part of the game
    And the inside changes and the box stays the same
    In shame,you shovel up the pieces to the pain
    You could try to hide yourself in this world of pretend
    When the paper's crumbled up it can't be perfect again

    From the top to the bottom
    Bottom to top I stop
    At the core I've forgotten
    In the middle of my thoughts
    Taken far from my safety
    Storm bright in the sky
    The sun will escape me
    So why did I try

    In a minute you'll find me
    Eyes burn me up
    You say you'll never forget me
    But the lies have piled up

    Now I got you caught in the act
    You better step back
    I'm telling you that I see it right through you
    Now I got you caught in the act
    You better step back
    I'm telling you that I see it right through you
    Now I got you caught in the act
    You better step back
    I'm telling you that I see it right through you
    Now I got you caught in the act
    You better step back
    I'm telling you that I see it right through you
    (Are you afraid of the truth?)
    Now I got you caught in the act
    You better step back
    I'm telling you that I see it right through you
    (Are you afraid of the truth?)
    Now I got you caught in the act
    You better step back
    I'm telling you that I see it right through you
    (Are you afraid of the truth?)
    Now I got you caught in the act
    You better step back
    I'm telling you that I see it right through you
    (Are you afraid of the truth?)
    Now I got you caught in the act
    You better step back
    I'm telling you that I see it right through you

    In a minute you'll find me
    Eyes burn me up
    You say you'll never forget me
    But the lies have piled up
    (In a minute you'll find me
    Eyes burn me up
    You say you'll never forget me
    But the lies have piled up)

    In Debris, could it be "to take OUR OWN path"?

    I heard it too. Good catch!

    I fixed these lines in "So Far Away"

    All The souls have gone and I'm stranded here with doubt and fear alone
    I don't know what's wrong, but I cannot help but try to push it
    I don't want to say it anyway

    Haven't listened to LPU12 yet, but knowing the POA and Forgotten demos are very similar to ones we already have, I can make some corrections from memory...

    POA second verse:

    "So mean to love
    Or see of her"

    Should be "Swimming through a sea of hurt"

    Forgotten second verse:

    "Prys out yellow light as it passes it by"

    Should be "Cries out yellow light as it passes it by"

    Forgotten bridge:

    "Now I got you got in the act"

    Should be "Now I got you caught in the act"

    I've used your post as inspiration. Also, the first correction you had, I still here "but" and not "I." Anyone else to weigh in on this.

    Astat, I haven'y gotten to your corrections yet, but I will look into it later. It's supper time.

    In the POA demo, I think it's not ''To see who gets scared when the lights go dim'' but ''To see who gets scared when the lights go down''

    In Asbestos, he says ''Give it back'' 4 times, not 3. Also, I think ''Leave it up, (??) give it up, turn it up, put it out, let it ride with the other lie'' is ''Leave it up, fucking give it up, turn it up, put it out, let it ride with the other lie'' - Not too sure on that, though... :lol:

    In Debris, ''My motivation is gone before you even came'' I think he says ''My motivation is gone before it even came''

    I'll post more if I see it.

    ?

    in Debris, is it not "tune in to the din again"?
    I might be 2nd guessing the CA accent, but that's what I hear

    Correction on the bolded line.
    Live it up, [book it], give it up, turn it up, tune it out, let it ride with the other lie.

    If you right click the play/pause button in Windows Media Player and select slow playback then you can see where I've got the idea for the [book it] from along with the other corrections.

    Also, after my assumed [book it], he stutters with the g.

    In Asbestos, it could be ''fuck it'', but I definitely don't agree with ''book it''.

    There's no sign of a "f" sound in the missing word(s). There are definitely some sort of "hit" sound like a b. I could be wrong though.

    Corrected lyrics for Abestos. I'm absolutely positive on all of this except for the "tune in at the din again" line, but I can't think of anything else that it would be:

    Don’t start with the ugly part, don’t end with the things that will make them want to walk away
    Tune in at the din again, another price ain't cheap but somebody’s gonna have to pay
    Oh yes, you can only guess, what it is, what it was, or remember what I had in mind
    Shotgunning on a joy ride, coming down the block, half-cocked nearly half the time

    Give it back, give it back, give it back, g-g-give it back, sing it

    One time for the words divine, and two times for the things that you hope you never have to say
    Three scenes in a dead man’s dream, and the girls tell the boys that they better fucking run away
    Live it up, or g-g-give it up, turn it up, tune it out, let it rhyme with the other line
    Shotgunning on a joy ride, coming down the block, half-cocked nearly all the time

    Give it back, give it back, give it back, g-g-give it back, sing it

    Here's So Far Away, really only one lyrical correction in the first verse, I just transcribed the lines slightly differently:

    Save me now from this mess that I've created
    All the souls have gone
    And I'm stranded here with doubt and fear, alone

    Tell me how I'm at fault for all this madness
    I don't know what's wrong
    But I cannot help but try to push it

    So far away
    (In so deep and inside of me)
    So hard to say
    (I don't want to say it anyway)

    Save me now, I'm the mess that I've created
    And my soul has gone
    And for some reason all I do is push it

    So far away
    (In so deep and inside of me)
    So hard to say
    (I don't want to say it anyway)

    So far away

    It's so far away
    (In so deep and inside of me)
    So hard to say
    (I don't want to say it anyway)

    So far away
    (In so deep and inside of me)
    So hard to say
    (I don't want to say it anyway)

    Some corrections to Debris as well (didn't bother to do the chorus repeats on this one since it's just a verse and chorus):

    Listen, my blood feels like it’s sitting still in my veins
    My motivation was gone before it even came
    Today and yesterday, they both seem the same
    And no matter how I try I just can’t change
    Give me one reason I should go outside
    Everything will be the same no matter what I try
    Some people will live, and some people will die
    And some people will build their whole life on a lie
    I used to blame you for the things that I thought you'd say
    So now I can’t blame you for going away
    Cause these memories are the blood beating under my skin
    Repeating the same thoughts again and again

    Again and again
    You said we couldn’t last long enough or be strong enough
    Again and again
    You said our voices weren’t loud enough, but we’ve had enough because

    We want our future back
    We want our own mistakes
    To take our own path
    We want to do it again

    I agree with this submission.
    "tune in at the din again" sounds correct to me.

    To me "tune in and begin again" makes sense, but I'm not hearing the 'g' sound in begin. "Tune in at the din again" makes no sense to me, but it sure sounds that way. Who knows?

    I agree, it is definitely a "d" sound. "Din again" just doesn't make sense.
