about

It's been ten years since we released our debut album and it took us about that long to record the darn thing. I thought it would be fun to put together a compilation of demo versions and unreleased bonus tunes. Expect wildly varying performance and audio quality.

I've added some pointless El Dog trivia on most of the songs. Happy listening.

Track Name: If That Was The Last That We Met (Acoustic Demo)
Always think I wish that I knew more
The TV made me think about it today
It said "I hope they knew"
And I really hope you do

How I loved you
Through and through
There was nothing I wanted more
Than for you to love me

Please see
That you tore me in two
The man that I am today
The boy you see

If that was the last that we met
Would you be happy?
Can you forget about the past
And all that you said to me?

What about those words?
What about those plans?
Though I still feel it now
This is me saying goodbye

This is me saying goodbye
Track Name: A Princess, A Monkey, The Stars and The Sea (Silent Hill Remix)
Take this piece of my hair
Plant it in your garden by the sea
Watch it grow into an oak
Watch it grow into a dream

Love, like the moon loves the waves
Join me
Love, drifting away
Save me

I can't shake this memory
A puddle glistening in the sum
Watch the ripples spread into a wave
Watch them spread into a wave goodbye.

If I was a girl and you were a boy
What chance would fate
Choose to deploy

If all we have and our last chance is gone
Then give me something to which to hold on
When you touch me
When you touch me
I am just a shadow in the sun
In the sun
Track Name: Rhythm Tooth (Demo)
Do you remember what it felt like
When sparks flew
For you?

Do you remember what it felt like
When your heart sank
The first time?

I don't want to go on without it, now

I see you standing there
With your eyes closed over
Thinking something I don't...
Don't know
Don't know
Yeah
Track Name: Ha Ha! Nae Joy! (Demo)
I'm turning into you
I've changed my design
I've killed myself for you
A thousand times
A thousand times

I'm not scared
I'm not scared
But I'm not there
Anyone can see

Dogs are barking
Do you love me?
Does anybody really care?

I'm feeling rather sheepish now
Yeah
Track Name: Fire In Your Eyes (Acoustic Demo)
Never seen someone look so alive
As you in the bonfire light
What a trick to play to make me fall for you
You always were the Queen of Hearts

You can't die from a broken heart
A broken heart
But you can't live without her

In a park under any sky
I dared you to hold me
Been risking my life
Dancing in the headlights

You can't die from a broken heart
A broken heart
But you can't live without her
Without her love

The dawn comes and ruins everything

Didn't want to send you letters
Missed the sound of your voice
Want to hold and say I love you
Dance among the neon signs that shine
Like the fire in your eyes
It's love
Like the fire in your eyes
It's love
Like the fire in your eyes
It's love
Track Name: I'm In A Van (Vocal Demo)
The say you're no good for me
(Oh ho! Oh ho! Oh ho!)
Skipped school, went to a party
(Oh ho! Oh ho! Oh ho!)
We were laughing in the neighbour's pool
(Oh ho! Oh ho! Oh ho!)
Lost my shoe in the water
(Oh ho! Oh ho! Oh ho!)

You're no good for me
(GO! GO! GO!)
But that's okay
You're no good for me
(GO! GO! GO!)
I love you anyway
Yeah yeah!

We dream in silence
-Caustic-
Our love lasted
-Running with-
I watch you sleeping
-Your love-
And whisper love

You're no good for me
(GO! GO! GO!)
But that's okay
You're no good for me
(GO! GO! GO!)
I love you anyway
Yeah!
Track Name: Glass Of Water (Demo)
I refract light into
A thousand rainbow colours
I am tasteless
Like a dream
You forgot
Buzzing inside a lightbulb

I fell into falling to
My knees for you

His friends said
He was a shadow
Of his former self, and
He was a shadow on my wall
A glass of water

How can you recognise me
In a crowded room
How can you see
Something to relate to
In this featureless stone

You were always the one
Putting me in situations
Always the one
To laugh when I'd fall
Track Name: Monster's Final Hour (Demo)
I saved all my heartbeats for you
Traced a line through the steps that we took
The silver of coincidence
In the form and the shape of a book

Why did you leave me alone?
Why did you let me go?
Why did we turn into ghosts
And disappear?

Take Me away from here
To the place where you go to forget
Throwing stones into the river
Ripples cut through the light of regret

Why did you leave me alone?
Why did you let me go?
Why did we turn into ghosts
And disappear?

And I search for you in everything I do
But you're not there
Just a promise fallen at your door
A lock of your hair

You try and kiss me as I'm walking away
But it won't work
This love was our last chance
Faded
Track Name: Rebecca's Spine (Demo)
Rebecca's spine goes all the way up
Rebecca's spine goes all the way up
All the way up, right up to the top
Rebecca's spine goes all the way up

She knows that I love her
She knows how to dance
All the lines on the pavement
Lead a path to romance

She knows that I love her
She knows how to dance
Track Name: Sham Rock (Demo)
We're alone tonight
Suffering dearth
Glass shadows cover us

I'm choking on a diamond
Your eye's a glistening jewel
I don't see no beauty
Here at all

Silence is my last chance
Or I might end up hurting you
What we have
What we have, don't let it go

A light goes out
A city shrouded in darkness
Tell me...I'll understand

A light goes out
A city shrouded in darkness
Tell me
I love you
I'll understand
Just talk to me
Track Name: If That Was The Last That We Met (Live at Slanj)
Always think I wish that I knew more
The TV made me think about it today
It said "I hope they knew"
And I really hope you do

How I loved you
Through and through
There was nothing I wanted more
Than for you to love me

Please see
That you tore me in two
The man that I am today
The boy you see

If that was the last that we met
Would you be happy?
Can you forget about the past
And all that you said to me?

What about those words?
What about those plans?
Though I still feel it now
This is me saying goodbye

This is me saying goodbye
Track Name: Pedro (Demo)
As the light
Turns to green
I think of pain
I think of pain

Of all that
Have gone before
And go now
And go now

-Random screaming & silly time signatures-
Track Name: Glass Of Water (Early Demo Version)
I refract light into
A thousand rainbow colours
I am tasteless
Like a dream
You forgot
Buzzing inside a lightbulb

I fell into falling to
My knees for you

His friends said
He was a shadow
Of his former self, and
He was a shadow on my wall
A glass of water

How can you recognise me
In a crowded room
How can you see
Something to relate to
In this featureless stone

You were always the one
Putting me in situations
Always the one
To laugh when I'd fall
Track Name: Sham Rock (Remix)
We're alone tonight
Suffering dearth
Glass shadows cover us

I'm choking on a diamond
Your eye's a glistening jewel
I don't see no beauty
Here at all

Silence is my last chance
Or I might end up hurting you
What we have
What we have, don't let it go

A light goes out
A city shrouded in darkness
Tell me...I'll understand

A light goes out
A city shrouded in darkness
Tell me
I love you
I'll understand
Just talk to me
Track Name: Fire In Your Eyes (2001 Demo)
Never seen someone look so alive
As you in the bonfire light
What a trick to play to make me fall for you
You always were the Queen of Hearts

You can't die from a broken heart
A broken heart
But you can't live without her

In a park under any sky
I dared you to hold me
Been risking my life
Dancing in the headlights

You can't die from a broken heart
A broken heart
But you can't live without her
Without her love

The dawn comes and ruins everything

Didn't want to send you letters
Missed the sound of your voice
Want to hold and say I love you
Dance among the neon signs that shine
Like the fire in your eyes
It's love
Like the fire in your eyes
It's love
Like the fire in your eyes
It's love
