about

A history of recorded demos by the short-lived grunge/hardcore band "Skin Effect".

I got quite a few people asking about Skin Effect and complimenting the track that we had featured on the GF400 compilation, all unaware that Skin Effect has broken up, and that me and Jared have started a new band called "Anhedonia".

For that sake, and nostalgia. I decided to upload an album of 17 rough demos, 3 of them being covers and 'December's Tragic Drive' for anyone who is interested. :)

EDIT: Probably important to mention like 65% of those songs were made up on the spot.

RIP
2013 - 2015.

Track Name: Destruction of a Idea
[???]

I don't want your fuckin' education

[???]

I'd rather be a black gay lesbian

Hey! [x6]
Hey! [x6]

Yeah!
Track Name: Ashes
[[TODD: It doesn't matter if we get stuff like before we start playing.
KURT: Yeah, alright so.
TODD: It's just a rough recording.
ALL: Yeah.
TODD: Just try to get the vocals as good as we can get them. Okay, that's good.]]

The emptiness, that sleeps inside me
driving me insane.
I can't see a meaning to this
driving me insane.
Track Name: Breakwater
I walked away.
I walked today.

I get away.
Go away.
Away.

I want to get away!
I want to run away!
I can't take it.

Go away!
I want to run away!
Away...

I can never get away.

[???]
I can't take it, I hate it!
I can't run away.

The only way out,
of the insanity I feel
is living fucking hell.

[[ALL: Yeah!
TODD: That was pretty rock-y, but hey, I said, tone it down together.]]
Track Name: Heroin
[[TODD: See how the bars all the way up there?
KURT: Yeah. Wanna just put it over there?
TODD: Yeah.
--
TODD: Count us in. Nah, Slower.]]

Turn off the radio, get away from me.
Too much skin on my hollow bones.
I would rather drift off,
then look into my pain.
Nothing else can save me now.
From this cure inside my veins.

I tried to run away,
but I have nothing away from you, away.
I tried to run away
I feel like there's nothing good, I'll never run away.

The day I woke up, was when when I first saw the sky,
but all my skies had turned to grey,
I would not ever think of turning back,

I’m a worthless scum, a piece of shit,
I will never run away.

I stay away,
I have nothing for you, yet.

There’s nothing here, no reason for me to stay.
There’s nothing here, no reason for me to stay.

[[TODD: See, that's the weird thing, like that song. I totally diss a whole bands that I just sounded like. I mean, like, I like Rites of Spring, actually, that's the kind of stuff, I mean, I listen to Rites of Spring and Sunny Day Real Estate, and some later emo stuff but right there, I did totally hear something that sounded like Blessthefall, Three Days Grace, 3 Doors Down. I mean it sounded really mainstream, but it was good.

KURT: Yeah, see the riff. I was really inspired by Dag Nasty for that riff, but, a really good minor riff, but it actually turned out a lot different than I expected.]]
Track Name: December's Tragic Drive
Rehabilitation,
what a pointless ruse.
I have never felt this revolted,
I’m unable to move.
Come to terms with false relations
and end it with this noose.
So many years of feeling degraded.
I’m left to expose the truth.

Remembering December’s Drive
down a lonely road.
Such a sad and tragic tale
that he’ll die alone.

Up another bottle,
down another shot,
turn on the heat in freezing cold
until our bodies stop.
Did you even stop to think,
that it would come to this,
so many years of waiting for you
have drowned me in the abyss.

Remembering December’s Drive,
down a lonely road,
such a sad and tragic tale
that he’ll die alone.

Forget the name, forget the place,
forget that I've ever seen your face,
until the earth below begins to break,
our memories will never fade.

Forget the name, forget the place,
forget that I've ever seen your face,
until the earth below begins to break,
our legacy will never fade.
Track Name: Sincerity
[[KURT: Okay, we can go!
TODD: Count us in.
TODD: ONE, TWO, FUCK YOU!! --- Fuck! I forgot how it goes!
TODD *mockingly*: You can't just expect me to come up with a song on the spot and expect me to remember it!]]
Track Name: Cassandra
[[TODD: Cause maybe in like, twenty years, Oh, we're all big musicians, we can sell out and do a box set. Seven discs of unheard demos!]]

You were standing with your head up high,
watching as the years flew by,
not afraid to say goodbye.

Even with the threat, you'd hide.
You would rather just get high.
Drink and fuck and wait to die.

Even the sound of the radio,
still brings up the feelings I know
even when it's filled with snow

One for everything I've known
Two for everyone I've known.

Even with the threat you'd hide.
You would rather just get high.
Jealously, and rainy skies,
in your green, azure eyes.

[[JARED: Now, the instrumental thing?]]
Track Name: Shame
I don't want to be somebody elses' slave.
I wanna try to hide myself from shame.
I don't want anybody else's fame.
I just want to be someone who runs away.

From shame,
from shame,
from shame.

I don't want to be someone else's blame.
I just want to writhe and live in pain.
I don't want to be seen as lame.
I don't want to be someone else's blame
I just want to run away from shame,

From shame,
from shame,
from shame.
Track Name: Jesus Saves
Jesus died for our sins,
and Jesus is the son of god!
Jesus watches us all of the time.
So stop
jerkin' off!
Track Name: Territorial Pissings (Nirvana Cover)
When I was an alien,
cultures weren't opinions.

Gotta find a way,
a better way,
when I'm there!
Gotta find a way,
a better way,
a better way!

Never met a wise man,
if so, it's a woman.

Gotta find a way,
a better way,
when I'm there!
Gotta find a way,
a better way,
a better way!

Just because you're paranoid,
don't mean they're not after you.

Gotta find a way,
a better way,
when I'm there!
Gotta find a way,
a better way,
a better way!
Gotta find a way,
a better way,
when I'm there!
Gotta find a way,
a better way,
when I'm there!
Gotta find a way,
a better way,
a better way!
Gotta find a way!
Track Name: Nutshell (Alice In Chains Cover)
We chase misprinted lies.
We face the path of time.
And yet I fight, and yet I fight,
this battle all alone.
No one to cry to,
no place to call home.

My gift of self is raked,
my privacy is raped.
And yet I find, and yet I find,
repeating in my head.
If I can't be my own,
I'd be better dead.
Track Name: Heart Shaped Box (Live)
She eyes me like a Pisces when I am weak.
I've been locked inside your heart shaped box for weeks.
I've been drawn into your magnet tar-pit trap.
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black.

Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint!
Forever in debt to your priceless advice.
Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint!
Forever in debt to your priceless advice.

Your advice...

Meat-eating orchids forgive no one just yet.
Cut myself on angel hair and babies breath.
Broken hymen of your highness, I'm left black.
Throw down your umbilical noose so I can climb right back.

Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint!
Forever in debt to your priceless advice.
Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint!
Forever in debt to your priceless advice.

Your advice... your advice...

She eyes me like a Pisces when I am weak.
I've been been buried in a heart shaped coffin for weeks.
I've been drawn into your magnet tar-pit trap.
I wish I could kill your cancer when you turn black.

Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint!
Forever in debt to your priceless advice.
Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint!
Forever in debt to your priceless advice.
Hey! Wait!
I've got a new complaint!
Forever in debt to your priceless advice.

Your advice... your advice...
Your advice... your advice.

[[*Audience applauds*
TODD: Thank you.]]
