I'm digging it. He seems to be throwing in a lot more solos in these demos then his previous work.

Quick stab at lyrics:

 

What will you find, where will you be?

When you gotta trade for company

Those plastic guns and infantry

For a silent army in the trees

Well, this ain't the woods behind the house

There ain't nobody screaming out

For you to come inside and eat

You're just holding your friends and watching them bleed

Wore camouflage on Halloween

A plastic bag, an M16

Door to door and house to house

There ain't nobody handing it out

Yeah, nothing's ever what it seems

When you're kicking in teeth and wishing in dreams

Just plastic guns and infantry for a silent army in the trees

 

Baby, don't you let me down

A world away and still somehow

I can't shake the feeling that you're out

With another man's arms wrapped tight around you

At night it's cold, we sit and freeze

Running red lights in our humvees

Never thought I'd live to see the day I'd be

Afraid of little kids playing in the street

Well, this ain't the woods behind the house

There ain't nobody screaming out

For you to come inside and eat

You're just holding your friends and watching them bleed

 

I'm on fire, but all ice on the outside

That old man in the sky, well, he's all ice on the outside

 

A million wail out in the streets

We watch the stage, but burn the seats

Too many lanes to get along, we ain't got much without one to stand on

Sometimes at night, I hear it roll

A hundred cars long pulling out slow

Like the engineers inside my head

Cold and dark like the side of the bed

Yeah, nothing's ever what it seems, and even if it is ends justify means

With plastic guns and infantry for a silent army in the trees

 

And I'm on fire, but all ice on the outside

That old man in the sky, well, he's all ice on the outside

Hurray for leaving tabs open, made a couple adjustments in the third verse upon listening again:

What will you find, where will you be?

When you gotta trade for company

Those plastic guns and infantry

For a silent army in the trees

Well, this ain't the woods behind the house

There ain't nobody screaming out

For you to come inside and eat

You're just holding your friends and watching them bleed

Wore camouflage on Halloween

A plastic bag, an M16

Door to door and house to house

There ain't nobody handing it out

Yeah, nothing's ever what it seems

When you're kicking in teeth and wishing in dreams

Just plastic guns and infantry for a silent army in the trees

 

Baby, don't you let me down

A world away and still somehow

I can't shake the feeling that you're out

With another man's arms wrapped tight around you

At night it's cold, we sit and freeze

Running red lights in our humvees

Never thought I'd live to see the day I'd be

Afraid of little kids playing in the street

Well, this ain't the woods behind the house

There ain't nobody screaming out

For you to come inside and eat

You're just holding your friends and watching them bleed

 

I'm on fire, but all ice on the outside

That old man in the sky, well, he's all ice on the outside

 

A muted wail out in the streets

We watch the stage, but burn the seats

Too many lanes to get along, we ain't got much without one to stand on

Sometimes at night, I hear it roll

A hundred cars long pulling out slow

Like the engineers inside my head

Cold and dark like your side of the bed

Yeah, nothing's ever what it seems, and even if it is ends justify means

With plastic guns and infantry for a silent army in the trees

 

And I'm on fire, but all ice on the outside

That old man in the sky, well, he's all ice on the outside

Thanks for the lyrics. If I'm not mistaken that last verse is new. At least I can't recall that I've heard it on any of the live versions of the song that I've heard.

I like it. Good tune and cool that he put a solo in there.

It is pretty good, and it is still on his site for those who care to look.

I don't see it.

 

But oh well. No matter. I'll hear it eventually.

*sigh*

 

Missed another one.

 

The new verse looks pretty cool and I'd have liked to hear what he did with the instrumentation.

Having not heard this demo, I'm still kind of hoping that maybe there's some kind of b-side acoustic version of Silent Army.

Sheesh I'm surprised that comment is still there.

 

Honestly I don't even think I want to listen to it. I feel like I don't want to ruin a potential surprise.

 

It'll be 20 times more awesome if I wait. I've learned this after feeling like Hospital Music was less cool after hearing the streamed songs on the site. I will show restraint, despite the fact that I effing love Silent Army in the Trees!

 

Kinda funny how everyone went in that link and cursed the guy out though...haha.

 

PS: Hospital Music was and is still awesome, just slightly less of awesome upon its release since I had already heard it.

You confuse me, as I sent it to your inbox some 3 hours ago.

I agree. The live version just had 'soul' that the 'studio' version lacks is is still great though and still just a demo. But oh well maybe it will grow on me...not I downloaded it or anything...(pulls collar)....
