about

"DEMONSTRATIONS" is a compilation in album form of the demo(n) recordings put down the first time Lillie and Matthew met to make music, June of 2010.

Since that time, ecstatics have added to the initial recordings, layering and forming with guitars, keyboards, percussion and most importantly voice, deciphering the words amongst the melodies and the mush, the songs broken out of that afternoon's worth of work.

These demos have become quite dear to us, and now we are offering them as a compilation album available for purchase, in an effort to fund our recording session for the studio realization of these eight tracks.

All eight of these songs will appear on ecstatics proper debut long-play album, which will be completed in April 2012.

Thank you...

Track Name: DIVINE RIGHT
Divine Right (aka Introduction Gothic #3)

Flying forth
And tapping all the rings you find
Here you land
You don’t have anything to hide
You poured it all out
And now you fill it up with light
Our Empires
Are the gold we hold inside

(doo doo, doo doo, doo doo, doo doo)

Shining out
Wrap your arms around their crowns
Molten gold
Filling up their holes inside
Solid now
Your power gives them light to see
Dying Live
Yes, it’s happening this time

Slipping into clear
We’re singing louder
Through the sweet fire
Hey
Live

Remembering it through your own way
Aaaahhhhhh
You slip it on and sheath your cold
A highway
Shines ahead of you in golden tile
Time flies, counting all the stars you see
Exploring, soft, observing as you go...
Track Name: HEARTS CHANGE
Hearts Change

I used to lay low
Bent around the love of dear times
Betting on the only thing
That was around

I know it was real late
Looking out for anymore good times
Listening to sounds all around me
Hearing for a change of heart

I need a real show
Popping out with always better thoughts
Silently making me feel high
Knowing that the pills that I take will affect what I think

I need to get by
And no one needs to lose any sleep while
I sing about a string that’s hanging on
Hanging on a change of heart

I need a real show
Popping out with always better thoughts
Silently making me feel high
Knowing that the pills that I take will affect what I think

I don’t need to grow up
But then again I don’t wanna grow down
Deeper into something desensitized
I’m holding on for broke with the hope that the human hearts change…

Hearts change

Cashed out my crystals
Moving on into the back woods
Sleep until I hit another state of mind
I be a shadow up in the night

Some people get lucky
Sitting in the in the woods on a Saturday
Providing that everyone feels fine
Everybody in the world…

I need a real show
Popping out with always better thoughts
Silently making me feel high
Knowing that the pills that I take will affect what I think

I don’t need to grow up
But then again I don’t wanna grow down
Deeper into something desensitized
I’m holding on for broke with the hope that the human hearts change…
Track Name: HERE TODAY, GONE TOMORROW
Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

You're here today but you're gone tomorrow
you're gone tomorrow
we haven't the time
to express any sorrow
it goes around and it comes around
it's an escapable thing
you're soft to touch, yeah
you're hard as bone

you got wild fingers
they touch my bones.
Track Name: HOLD ME, MY NEW FRIEND
"Hold Me, My New Friend"

You’re living on ground
You’re lving on light
You’re living living living on the whole…
P p p p planet…

Everywhere you stand you’re about to be laaate
Out of the rain out of the light out tiiime
Hold me my new friend, hooray you are mine
Sing in anyway you are miiiine
You are no longer alone

Everywhere you stand you’re about to be laaate
Out of the rain out of the light out tiiime
Hold me my new friend, you are blood to my bones

Here I am waiting to be moved in my mind
You called my weary soul

Everywhere you stand you’re about to be laaate
Out of the rain out of the light out tiiime
Hold me my new friend, hooray you are mine
Sing in anyway you are miiiine

Even though I spin and fall over
Even though I riiiiide
On the back on the patience of you
I’m still swollen in the heart when you call

Everywhere you stand you’re about to be laaate
Out of the rain out of the light out tiiime
Hold me my new friend, you are blood to my bones
Sing in anyway you are miiiine
Track Name: MARE
Mare

When I was a soldier
I painted my saddle bright
And though I was gored and beaten
My enemies I’d not strike

Goodnight, my daughter
I’ll rest ye well in my mind
And with veils of muslin white
I’ll bless you a saint’s requite

And now I’m a patron
A matron of heathen tithes
I’ll spare you my tales of war
Your lessons are in my eyes

I falter inside
with tender stones painted white
they roll and they tumble
Down rumbling to my soul

You’ll find that I’m nowhere
Shouting out to the world
With eyes that are so wide
Baring you the war inside

Goodnight, my soul wife
Hang on for your dear life
I’ll not go far
Imagine me on the sofa

To fall and go on
One last time I wish I might
But rising is for the young
I fall but for one last time
Track Name: NEVER SAY REVEN
Never Say Reven

I apologize for smiling too much
There isn’t a motion that doesn’t need touch

Going to bed with the midnight eyes
Tucked and flooded til the red sunrise

Desperate times call for desperate moves
Unless your light comes shining here

I can’t stand if my face makes fear
Calling up for the damage control…

Short stay for immediate calls
Slips I’m out through the window

Go to bed like your body should
Try to forget what you never said.

Serious is to me just fine
Tucked and flooded til the red sunrise

On the outside such a fool
Always high, celebrating you

Swelled up, thrilled up,
My heart’s falling into pieces

Complicate all the words you use
I’m willing to bet you’re too generous

I’m falling off the place I used to pretend to be in control from!!!

Never say reven.
Track Name: SAINT ME THE MARTYR
Drawing our thoughts
tied to you I am
quartering mine
I am remaining in line

You will arrive
You are near
Who are you when are
you near?

Too far into me
You're a God in my shape
Too far and I'm changed
Too far and now I pray
Track Name: WEIRDO TIP TOES
Again

Here they come again

Here they come again
We're watching them go when the lights are lowering

We're watching them come when the lights go high

We're watching them go when the lights feel lonely

We're watching them come when the lights go by

And here they come again

Here they come again

Here they come again

Here they come again
They watch and they come when the lights feel high

They watch and they go when the lights feel lonely

And here they come again

Here they come again

Here they come again

Here they come again now
The slippery slope is where you all departed

The slippery slope is where you'll all be fine

The time will come when there's no one speaking

The time will come when your loss is high

And here they come again

Here they come gently

Here they come again

Here they come quickly
Here they come again

Here they come again now

Here they come again now

Here they come again now
Sing wild chants

Take a wild chance

Outbound and reasonable

Speaking light things

Speaking light things

Coldly Bright

Speaking light things

To liberate

To serve the walking tides

To string a pearl of their lives

It's culling all their own ways
Now push this pall off, unlock

The arms, stand here are we one and all

Holding all our own
Speak no harm

Hold these arms

Wave them low

Roll them back

Raise, Elate

All the way

All the luck can rise in me
Wishing to roam when the load's upon me

Watching them come when their lights feel lonely

It's a striving heart thing

Got to haulweight off me

Look into the feel of my heart beat

Look into the feel of my heart beat

inside inside

It lives in my

It lives in my

It lives in my

It lives in my

It lives in my

Oh little little mine

Your little mine

Your little mines

Your little mines...
It's all bewtiching and the lights do shine

I'm over the edge this time this time

dododo mumumumnanana ahnnanan

Ohmpadedemdem

Halleloo halle halleloo

Halle-hallelujah

Only parting with the ugly side

What if we just kept it going endlessly
