about

Justin DiFebbo Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

It simply celebrates that sweet and lush psychedelic sound in the tradition of early '70s Pink Floyd, Big Star, and late '90s Flaming Lips. The beauty and vitality of the songs more than justifies them having to be apologetic about their embrace of this now-classic sound. Everything about it seems to have a kind of timeworn patina that makes it soothing, comfortable, and familiar. ... more

Track Name: Adrift
We slipped into unconsciousness 

But consciously we stayed adrift 

Abstract notions strangely intertwined 

Reflecting love and hate and right and wrong 

But willfully we move along 

Ignoring all the warning signs 

Our minds they may be gone 

Too far along 

We did not know 

That help was right around the corner
Track Name: Air You Breathe
Break down your walls for me

I’ll pay for the air you breathe
Pardon me while I enjoy your atmosphere

And now I’m blinded by the warmth of happy tears
Break down your walls for me

I’ll pay for the air you breathe
You gotta tear them down

Mama

You gotta tear them down

Mama
Track Name: Back and Forth
We’ve broken into two what once was one

We shattered all the joys that once were fun

Yet every time I fall
You pick me up again

Brush me off and send me packing

Back and forth we drift into each other’s consciousness

The world is pushing us to be together… love

We are kind of like the land and sea

When waves they reach the shore eventually

A moment in the sun we exist as one

Dragged apart in the white water

Back and forth we drift into each other’s consciousness

The world is pushing us to be together… love

Perhaps it’s time to swim for shore

Forget about the things not worth fighting for

Nevermind the ups and downs and circling round

Together we are something better

Back and forth we drift into each other’s consciousness

The world is pushing us to be together… love
Track Name: Do What You Like
Do what you like
It’s all right

I don’t mind not knowing where I’m going
A perfect life

Is what you’d like

Sometimes a seed needs sowing before growing

I’ll follow silently

If I’ve got someone watching over me

And rather wistfully

As long as I can spend my time with someone who will see things through

You had my heart

Right from the start
When you settled for my simple conversation

I’ll follow silently

If I’ve got someone watching over me

And rather peacefully

We’ll spend our time in paradise, umbrella drinks and glassy eyes
Hoping for the sunny skies but patchy clouds are ok too
Track Name: Skin and Bones
When I left home

I was skin and bones

Did not know what would become of me

Would a woman do a number on me?

Walked alone

Over streets unknown

Searching for some company

For that woman who’d do a number on me

Somebody who will help me grow

It’s an evolution

Someone to help forget what I know

Call it absolution

It’s that woman… she’ll do a number on me
Track Name: To My Love
Here in some foreign town

My situations got me down

Beggars with children all around
I don’t even feel like myself

Feels like I’m someone else

Who am I to turn them down?

I’m so tired of hanging around and my

Situation has got me down

I miss my real life in my home town

I just can’t wait to get back home to my love

The streets are ripe with the smell of old fruit in India

A billion people don’t seem to mind

Sacred cattle roam free on the streets in India

Feeding on discarded on rinds

I’m so tired of hanging around and my

Situation has got me down

I miss my real life in my home town

I just can’t wait to get back home
Track Name: Blue Melody
So, they figured you out 

Did they get you to break your solemn vow? 

And sing alone in your room 

Did they get you to sing a lonesome tune? 



All your melodies colored blue 

Here in your room 

Are they part of your inspiration?

Even though you sing them in tune 

With an indigo hue 

You didn't meet their blue expectations of you 



You know you're not very well 

Did they get you to sell your deepest secrets 

Your soul... is that for sale too? 

Did they say you could buy it back later if you wanted to? 



All your melodies colored blue 

Here in your room 

Are they part of your inspiration? 

Even though you sing them in tune 

With an indigo hue 

You didn't meet their blue expectations



I get this feeling 
I can't believe it 

Makes me want to run and hide 

You get this feeling 

Turn it into melody 

Sing it to me and I'll see you on the other side



I get this feeling 
I can't believe it 

Breaks my heart and kills my pride 

You get this feeling 

Turn it into melody

Sing it to me and I'll see you on the other side 


Sing it to me and I'll see you on the other side


Did you meet their expectations?
Track Name: Too Much
Too much

I’m tired of doing too much

I want to lay down
And rest my head

Wake to my favorite season

Feel the swaying of the trees and

Let the breeze be the reason
I get up out of bed

Too much

I’m tired of doing too much

I want to wake up

And hear no sound

Except the movement of the ocean

The birds that sing with raw emotion

Freedoms such a simple notion

Tired of being burden bound

Too much

I’m tired of doing too much

Too much

It’s all in my head

Too much
I’m tired of doing too much

As such
I’ll go back to bed
Track Name: Be My Star
I was lost

I was lost

Took a wrong turn somewhere

Need to right myself despite the cost

I’m not right

I’m not right

To warn down and tired

Need to rest my weary head tonight

Oh would you like to be my star?

So you can shine on me

And hold me close in your warm arms

Oh would you take me from this place?

Shine like a light on me
And keep me warm in your embrace

I was wrong

I was wrong

Words won’t do it justice

Sorry I’ve been this long
Oh would you like to be my star?

So you can shine on me

And hold me close in your warm arms

Oh would you take me from this place?

Shine like a light on me

And keep me warm in your embrace
