Album Description:

In 2010, I recorded a myriad of demos. Some of the tracks were recorded as blueprints or sketches for future projects, while others were recorded as one-offs or theme songs for podcasts. Originally, this project was called Demos 2010, but I re-released this collection as an album in 2018.

Fire Your God features everything from acoustic versions of previously released songs to video game-inspired rock to white-boy hip-hop. These tracks are far from perfect, but they are awesome.

Not By a Long Shot (Acoustic)

You lead me down that path
But I fall behind
I search for your footprints but
They’re nowhere in sight

It seems like every time I’m
Trying to catch up to you
Why do I keep on falling?
When I need to see this through

This is the story of my life
Accusations from my pride
I’m nowhere in the ballpark
Not even close – not by a long shot

Save me from my wicked mind
Save me from myself
Save me from this confusion
Show me the light

Summer (I’ll Be Waiting)

Where is the summer you have promised?
It seems so far away
The chilly wind sends shivers
Shivers down my spine

These days of youth of beauty and glory
Drink from the cup these waters of strength
Basking in the warmth of the sun
Bleached hair and bronzed skin
Point towards these horizons
And chase it with courage

Where has the summer gone?
Just outside my reach
Have these trees withered
And brought back to life?

Allure of beauty
The warmth of your embrace
Fear binds us all
Until we learn to live
Return to me afresh
Come back to me again
Come out from your hiding place
And run towards me
‘Cause I’ll be here
I’ll be waiting
‘Cause I’ll be here
I’ll be waiting
Yeah, I’ll be here
I’ll be waiting

There’s Only One Boss

PJD, I’m the king of the mountain
My style keeps cool, flowin’ like a fountain
What can I do? I’ll spin ya around
You’re bound to go ’round when D’s on the sound (What?)
Crash into a wall, but that won’t stop me
Got your CD-ROMs, store my files on a floppy
Digital words, cut, paste and copy
Your rhymes are dull, gettin’ kinda sloppy
Everybody’s jumpin’ and I’m feelin’ hip-hoppy

Scrolling across, spinnin’ a toss
Twirling in circles, there’s only one boss

You can miss the prince, but not the king
Your mind is stale and you’re feeling’ the sting
I’ll be old-school in the year 2000
PJD, you won’t see me school browsin’
I’m a mouse spud, join me on a web cruise
You snooze, you lose, so tie up your shoes
Hardcore, punk, funk, always slam dunk
Fold up my rhymes, put them in a treasure trunk

I’ll take the time to tell you who I am
I’m D and like bam, I rock the jam
Get up, pick it up, it’s time to get hooked
Don’t sit around, the show is booked
Got a dream to see, and a way to follow
No reason to be if your dreams are hollow
Life is in a hurry, no time to stall
I ain’t No. 1, just startin’ to crawl

Fear No Longer

Caught in a trap, these thoughts
These thoughts bring me down
And if I only knew
What I could do
To make it better
I would not hesitate
And I would show you
Everything that I could be

It’s weighing me down
It feels so heavy
It’s weighing me down
This burden on my shoulders

Fear no longer
Fear no longer

I thought I could find myself in you
Now I know that’s not true
Now I don’t know where I begin
Or where this heartache ends
But I thought that you should know
I wasn’t giving up
I was only trying to push through the pain

Something to Say

It’s always so cold around you
Your emptiness is killing me
Why are you so distant
Just out my, just out of my reach

I don’t know if I can help
But I wish that you would stay

Do you have something to say?
Why does your mouth stay closed?
Why are you afraid
When I’m here by your side?

Do you feel alone in the world
Within the darkness of your heart?
But you won’t let me in
Just out of my, just out of my reach

Not Forgotten

I can’t find you no matter where I look
I’m at the end of myself again

You are not forgotten
You are not alone
Don’t ever think that I’ve left your side

I don’t have the strength for this
I keep getting up to be pushed back down

You pick me up when I’m down
Your bring me back to life
You’re the only thing that I have left
