I wrote the songs for this demo in 2009, when I was 18 years old. This particular recording is composed of two different LIVE performances at "The Bull Run" where they mic'd our instruments and recorded the audio. These were our first two live shows ever. We were all nervous as hell, especially me, because there were a few hundred people there, and I had never sang in front of anybody besides my band. All of these songs have evolved into music that I am still working with on Hungry Lights

This demo album was also the beginning of The Mourn. It was a sci-fi story about a guy who was going around injecting people with a death serum, and he did not know why. He did not even know who he was. He just did what "The Master" told him to do. Eventually, he meets this girl, and they fall in love, and he starts getting his memory back. He remembers that he signed a contract, selling his soul to The Master. Once he remembers this, he realizes that the only way for him to be free again is to kill The Master, but the girl ends up caught in the crossfire and dies.
Fun fact: The name "Blind Can't Follow" came from Luke 6:39 "A blind man cannot guide a blind man, can he? Will they not both fall into a pit?"
Fun fact: I wrote "Everything That Exists" in my head, during a high school science class because I was bored and uninterested in whatever the teacher was teaching, as well as on the bus ride home.
All songs were written by Justin Bonitz.
