Note 3 Black screen - Can I backup?

My note 3 barely got touched by a little water yesterday..Salt water that is, and its black screening and won't display anything. All the buttons light up and it powers on though. I tried a variety of things and can't seem to get it working again. Is there any way I can back up my texts or files or anything from my phone even though I can't see the screen? I can't seem to access it on my computer because I know I have a pattern lock on my phone and it won't show up on my computer unless I unlock it. I feel like I am totally screwed. I don't have an SD card so everything is on the internal memory. Any options..at all? =(
