about

Daniel Eischeid Edmond, Oklahoma

Nirvana, Weezer, Ozma influenced, melodic, power pop-rock music. Strong melodies, hooks, and good harmony-driven rock. My personal acoustic demos I record on the spot, to give to my band (Starry Skies) to work up drum and bass and guitar tracks for. Some make it to our band's lineup, some don't. They sound very different when finished. Now, full band (solo) demos as well! Please enjoy. ... more

Track Name: Don't Throw It All Away
Oh, I just don't know where I should go
So baby show me so I'll know

Cause you'd just to lead the way
I'd follow you anyplace
Cause I would much rather lose my way with you
Than go without you, babe

So why lay down and die, or frown and cry,
When I could just be by your side? Whoa

If you just locked yourself away
I'd follow you anyway
Cause I would much rather suffocate
Than go without you one more day

Don't throw it all away, don't throw it all away
Don't throw it all away, away!

If you just locked yourself away
I'd follow you anyway
Cause I would much rather suffocate with you
Than go without you

(Babe)
If you just wanted to leave today
(Leave today)
I promise I wouldn't hesitate
(Celebrate)
We'll leave right then and just celebrate
(Our youth)
Our youth, so don't throw it all away
Track Name: Summer Breeze (The Love I Never Had (With drums)
As I lay in your arms every night
Wide awake till the warm morning light
I can tell by the smile on your face
That you're dreaming of warm summer days

When we would ride our bikes and play
Until the sun went down and our moms call our names

Sometimes when I feel the breeze
As I stand outside beneath the trees
I look up, enchanted by the leaves as they blow
And some nights when I feel the need
I'll go stand outside beneath the trees
And I'll watch the lightning bugs all eve as they glow

As we walk through the warm summer rain
Not a reason at all to complain
I believe that we're happier now
Than the gods, and that fate should allow

And it just gets better from here
We just hold hands and all our problems disappear

And when the stars shine down on me, and illuminate your face
I remember when we would sneak, out to look at the Milky Way
And we would formulate our dreams, nothing could stand in our way
And our problems seemed so small, as they'd all melt away

Track Name: Celebrity Dreams
Staring in the mirror, who's that looking back at me?
Is this my reflection, or do my eyes just deceive?
Looking out the window, people stop and stare at me
From behind this glass it feels like I am on TV

Our lives are perfect now we're celebrities
We follow all the trends of society
I'll grow my beard out baby, you'll stick with me
They'll dig up dirt on us for the world to see

Just forget tomorrow- all that matters is today
We'll live without regret, who needs a future anyway?
We'll see all the countries- We will party night and day
So step onto my jet and we will just be on our way

Travel the world together- all we can see
We'll go to Oscar parties- just you and me
If we get separated, check TMZ
They'll dig up dirt on us for the world to see

You're getting caught up in the tabloids and the paparazzi
Make one mistake that's caught on tape and then you're on Hard Copy
I thought this life would satisfy- that I'd be living a dream
This nightmare makes me want to scream, yeah!

Our fifteen minutes ended- what a relief
Maybe things can return to how they should be
I kind of miss the spotlight, but not the grief
Can't have the best of both worlds unfortunately
Track Name: What I've Been Through (Drum version)
Love is a zombie... when I think it's dead
It's back to haunt me- gets inside my head and feeds
It changes me

Lost in the moment and I'm so afraid
Before I know it now my soul's escaped from me
It's hers to keep

I'll sing woooo cause they don't know what I've been through with you cause they don't know what I've been through with you
cause they don't know what I've been through with you
What can I do?

They say that I should get away from this
But I'm addicted to the grave and it's too late
There's no escape

I'd rather take abuse with no defense
Than face rejection laced with loneliness and grief
So let me bleed

And sing woooo cause they don't know what I've been through with you cause they don't know what I've been through with you
cause they don't know what I've been through with you
What can I do?

To make you change your mind
To make you change your ways
I'll do it all myself, it doesn't matter what it takes
So maybe I'm in love
Or maybe I'm insane
I can't tell anymore- I'll just sit back, relax,

And sing woooo cause they don't know what I've been through with you cause they don't know what I've been through with you
cause they don't know what I've been through with you
What can I do?
Track Name: She Makes Me High (Drum version)
Once upon a time there was a girl who nearly made me lose my mind
She was one of a kind, she truly was sublime, oh yeah
Now beauty such as this should not exist, you know it ought to be a crime
She makes me high- she truly blows my mind, oh yeah

Cause she is like a drug, and I just can not get enough
And now I have withdrawn from everything and everyone
Cause she is all I need, oh god I hope she sticks around
Cause when she leaves my world comes crashing down

And once you've had a taste you can't escape, you'll never be the same again
You can't be friends, at best you can pretend, oh no
And there's no hope for me but hopefully this isn't how the story ends
For us to win, we have to score again. Oh, no

Cause she is like a drug, and I just can not get enough
And now I have withdrawn from everything and everyone
Cause she is all I need, oh god I hope she sticks around
Cause when she leaves my world comes crashing down

Hiding from the sun is so much fun
Have we become curmudgeons?
Reclusive misanthropes on the run.
What can be done?

Nothing lasts forever, like the weather, things were bound to finally change
She ran away, I text her every day. Oh yeah
I'm not feeling well, I fell like Hell would be a better place to stay
My body aches, and she's the only thing I crave, YEAHHH!

Cause she was like a drug, and I just could not get enough
And I seem to have lost all of the things I used to love
Cause she was all I needed, god I wish she'd stuck around
But now she's gone and my world's turned upside down

Whoa oh oh, it's upside down
Whoa oh oh, it's crashing down
Whoa oh oh, it's crashing down
Whoa oh oh, it's crashing down
Track Name: Serial Love (Drum version)
It all started with a mystery on the night you blew a kiss to me.
From across the room my misery would soon be replaced with disbelief

Then I was glowing, my heart was exploding
Felt like I was floating, I could blow away, hey hey hey hey

I never wanted you to turn around again
The world around me blurred and froze and then
I said that I forgot about my friends, they left without me
And so you offered me a ride

As you drove me home we talked about all the things we couldn't live without
When you stopped the car I could not get out as my mind was full of fear and doubt

Until you kissed me, worries stopped existing
I could not resist the, urge to bring you in in in in in

I never wanted you to leave my side again
Just take my hand and be my bride and then
Forget about your family and your friends- it's all about me
And so I locked you up that night

Please understand that this was how it had to be
I drove your car into the lake one night so now you're safe with me
And that's okay cause all the things you said you could not live without
Are locked inside my basement with you, there's no need to scream or shout
Cause I'll be here right by your side until the day you have to die
Oh baby hit me, so I know you're still with me - I love you

Baby, seems like you might hate me
Haven't said much lately, or even drawn a breath

I never wanted you to run away again
Forgot to mention food and water when
You told me all the things you needed can you please forgive me

I hope that we can still be friends until the end
If you get lonely I will get your friends
And family then we can both begin our lives together
No one will hear from us again
Track Name: Death By Candlelight (2016 Drum Mix)
Even when I asked you out, I could not believe you were next to me
Couldn't help but shout it out, I had finally found my destiny
And she held me tight, so I knew right then, it would be alright
Nothing matters when, set to candlelight
Thus began our romantic history

And then soon we'd figure out that we won't work out quite so perfectly
And we'd even scream and shout, it seems sad, but love is so perplexing
And our love is true, so I'll hold it in, and I'll stick with you
Nothing matters when you've been feeling blue
Thus began our romantic mystery

I can't escape the words you say to me
You contemplate whether you'll stay or leave
I cannot restrain my love for you, so...

Maybe next I'll choke you out, pour a gasoline puddle next to you
Leave the candles burning out, as I cuddle up right there next to you
And I'll hold you tight, cause I love you so, and I'll make things right
I can't let you go, death by candlelight is the only way
To escape this misery
Track Name: American Dream (2016 Drum Mix)
If I was all yours and you were all mine
Nothing could stop true love of this kind
If I become deaf as you become blind
I'll read your lips as you read my mind

Oh your love has got a hold on me
But I can't let it show
Cause you might try to set me free
And I won't let you go

With our white picket fence, and our fancy machines
We're living in the American dream
The sky is so blue, the grass is so green
Something's amiss- things just aren't as they seem

Oh the wool was pulled right off of me
But I can't let it show
Cause they might try to bury me
And I'm not letting go

As the world ends we'll go out to play
And we'll just pretend it's a beautiful day
With nothing to lose, no reason to pray
I'll kiss your lips as it all blows away

Oh your love has got a hold on me
And now I'll let it show
Cause I have never felt so free
And I won't let you go

The world is falling down on me
But I won't let it show
Cause I just need your love for me
And I won't let you go

I won't let you go
I won't let you go
Track Name: Ashley Black
With so many boys at your feet all around you
How could I hope to compete or astound you
And though I know hardly anything about you
I need you to know that I cannot live without you

Ashley Black please always love me
Like an angel up above me
Ashley Black please watch out for me
Don't deceive or misinform me

I know we both have a past that can haunt us
And this can cause shady people to want us
We build up a wall, hiding from that which daunts us
It only comes down for the ones who will flaunt us

Ashley Black please always love me
Like an angel up above me
Ashley Black please watch out for me
Never harm me, just adore me

Cuddle with me, keep me warm at night
You're all I need, make me feel so right
Don't ever let go

Ashley Black please always love me
Like an angel up above me
Ashley Black please watch out for me
Never harm me, just adore me

Ashley Black please shine down on me
So that I may see
Ashley Black please watch over me
Never set me free

And I'll promise you, if you stay with me
I'll always be true, we'll always be free
Track Name: Jessica (2016 Drum Mix)
Some people settle down, some people get around
Some people leap before they look and then they fall down
Maybe we'd float around, maybe we'd feel down
We'll never know until we try- we're both alone

Now Jessica where have you been?
Haven't talked for ages, now it's time to break the silence.
Just because we haven't met doesn't really matter
Cause we're living in the moment

It seems so easy to just fall in love with you
Nobody else quite understands just what we're going through
I know just what to do, don't have to think it through
Drop everything, hop on a plain and then I'm there with you

Jessica where have you been?
Haven't talked for ages, now it's time to break the silence.
Just because we haven't met doesn't really matter
Cause we're living in the moment

I want you to hit me as hard as you can
Gave up my possessions as part of the plan
You gave me a kiss-shaped scar on my hand
Now love me and leave me and start it again

Jessica how have you been?
Now that we're together I can take your hand and hold it
Just because we hadn't met, never even mattered
Cause we're loving every moment

Jessica my love (living in the moment)
Jessica my love (living in the moment)
Track Name: Xana (2016 drum version)
Oh Xana, you heard us on the internet
And I thought I'd say
You IM'd me and I am so glad we met
I hope you stay

Oh, won't you come and watch a little of our
Show, or I will walk away
I know, that if you're standing in the middle front
I'd have to stay

Oh Xana, you played us on the radio
Happiness I feel
And I know you'll play us once again
Oh yeah, I know you will

Oh, won't you come and watch a little of our
Show, or I will walk away
I know, that if you're standing in the middle front
I'd have to stay

Oh Xana, you spread the word in Germany
I want you to know
Here's my thanks for everything you've done for me
Don't ever go

Don't ever go
Don't ever go
Don't ever go
No, don't ever go
Track Name: I Don't Want To Be Here Anymore
I feel sorrow, I feel shame
I feel almost everything
But I just can't feel happy anymore

I feel torment, I feel pain
I feel endless suffering
And I don't want to be here anymore

Because I feel so alone, and I've lost all inspiration
But my problems always seem to stick around
Just know that I believe there is nothing left to believe in
But I believe I'm better off underground

I once felt your warm embrace
I once kissed your lovely face
But I don't get to do that anymore

So take my money, take my things
Take my pride, and wear my ring
But I don't want to be here anymore

Because I feel so alone, and I've lost all inspiration
But my problems always seem to stick around
Just know that I believe there is nothing left to believe in
But I believe I'm better off underground

You alone have saved me from ending my own life
When your message hit my screen and it
just brightened my whole night
And I felt a rush of dopamine and serotonin hit my brain
What the hell is wrong with me?
I must be insane

You're with him, but you can't leave
You're a goddess- he's a cheat
And I don't think you're happy anymore

Patiently I'll sit and wait
Serve my sentence, bound by fate
And I don't want to be here anymore

I don't want to be here anymore
I don't want to be here anymore
