The demo version of Isle Unto Thyself.
Notable differences between the demo and album version include the the chorus and verses being told in first person (bridges remain second person), Joe Hawley singing the chorus instead of Madi Diaz and a vivid Hawaiian/60's theme.
Blind a shining star We won't see so far Know what can't be shown Feel what can't be known I was an isle unto myself I had a heart I hadn't felt Why would it hurt me? Or was it real? It was the day I had to part I was afraid to miss my heart What did it matter? Why did it matter? Or would I feel? Blind a shining star We won't see so far Know what can't be shown Feel what can't be known I was a victim of magic Apollo Catching my breath as I bled on the ground Somebody called me to follow I followed Thinking aloud without hearing the sound (why) When all the planets fall to dust Lonely departing after us Gone not forgotten Long but forgotten In every element of life Love camoflages under strife Or other matters Not only better Let there be more Maybe we'll tango tomorrow The sorrow Sweeping us off as our mother replies Suddenly everything flowing Like water Clearer than all we can see with our eyes (why) Blind a shining star We won't see so far Know what can't be shown Feel what can't be known Why do travelling tumbleweeds arrive? Why do murderous animals survive? Why do I deserve to be revived? Why are any are all of us alive?
