Track Name: Echo Parade Pt. 1
Capsize in the summertime
you got the best of mine
and we’re off
it’s an echo parade
I gave you a wooden box
covered in polkadots
did it fit?
did it give it away?

What dreams may come
in camera lenses looking on
I’ve seen those
faces in the photos on your wall

But it gets so hard to tell
whether we’ve been here before
when the road is curved ahead
like a cartoon rubber floor
So let’s slip and slide
and sleep together again once more
Yeah it’s a circle affair
it’s a circle affair for sure
Track Name: Echo Parade Pt. 2
I see circles at war in your eyes
cold dilations
old vibrations
I feel patterns alive in the night
and submission

In the kitchen late at night
waiting for the stove to light
Grab a mug I got from you
fill it with my ginger blues

Capsize in the summertime
you got the best of mine
and we’re off
it’s an echo parade
Track Name: Little White Pill
Did you hear what they said
this little white pill will solve all your problems

'Cause the weight of the world is a lot
to carry on your shoulders
they said when you were older
you'd know what to do
still the world is colder than they promise you

As the light turns red
and I drive through these streets
with that thought in my head

This whole human condition is a lot
to carry on my shoulders
and be a little bolder to ask for a dance
still the world is colder than they promise you

Is this still the same place
where our fathers would lie?
coming to the same ideas as them
we just got different words
and different tunings
and it's getting stranger
to wait for the end

Still I've got time
but no way to control
what it does to my life

When the stars in the universe are bright
in the spaces where they smolder
tonight they're spinning slower
'cause you are around
still the night is colder than they promise you
