Adrift 04:11
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
2.
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

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

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

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

To My Love 03:08
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

Blue Melody 05:21
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?

Too Much 03:28
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

Be My Star 03:22
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

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
