We Are Still 05:30
You can't get anywhere if you don't set a course. Wander aimlessly down empty halls and corridors And then you wonder how we ended up in this place. Two young hearts in love, lost in the chase....Broken-hearted Right here we are still so still I must be dreaming Right here we are still so still, but you're still running from my arms My vision is shadowless, my colors are mute The world moves slower now, like a cloudy afternoon The paint is chipping off, there's only static on the radio The garden flowers die, as the weeds start to grow Right here we are still so still I must be dreaming Right here we are still so still, but you're still running from my arms We always chase the still to break the silence and find some peace Fleeting moments come together so we can breathe. I won't forget the time, we stormed through Paris new years eve It was a long goodbye that began when you turned to me - and you whispered.... Right here we are still so still I must be dreaming Right here we are still so still, but you're still running from my arms

taking in the white and breathing out the black to relax it's been days on end and now your fighting back the attack The walls are coming down like a flash monsoon, crashing in the fleeing refugees rush forth to escape, from east Berlin don't follow me it just my mercury retrograde fall back as my sense of security fades away The clerk give you a glare, she doesn't understand, and she can't your swimming up the street, can't count the change in your hand, oh man. The room is getting small, the colors bleeding through the lines the panic setting, your heart is beating back in time.... don't follow me it just my mercury retrograde fall back as my sense of security fades away yeah I'm falling back- yeah I'm falling back sometimes your falling back to move ahead don't follow me it just my mercury retrograde fall back as my sense of security fades away

Startrails 04:52
I walked the trail backward just to see if I could get back everything was out of place and I found myself off track wandering in circles, down streets we used to stroll dizzy as the sun goes down and I start to lose control take these idle hands and strike me blind cut these wings from off my crooked spine take these idle hands and strike me blind spiraling in star trails I unwind unfamiliar faces stare as I'm letting down my guard sweating bullets in my bed, a burning falling star your the one I loved the most, you'll never really know sidle high and straddle low my heart beats fast my head explodes take these idle hands and strike me blind cut these wings from off my crooked spine take these idle hands and strike me blind spiraling in star trails I unwind I walked the trail backward just to see if I could get back everything was out of place my eyes sore red my soul so black take these idle hands and strike me blind cut these wings from off my crooked spine take these idle hands and strike me blind spiraling in star trails I unwind

Tuning in to listen to the sky. We're calling out to you. Turn the SETI dish to face the stars. We're calling out to you. Are you the gods that sparked this great experiment? Sentient, naked, blind and bold? We stole the fire and took the reign. I know you're out there. Tuning in to listen to the sky. We're calling out to you. Self destructing, do you hear our cries? We're calling out to you. We're dust of stars in a zoo hypothesis. Fermi shouts to the void above. Held in cage behind a one-way mirror. I know you're out there. Where is everybody? Where is everybody?

about

Random Parade California

Alternative rock project, Random Parade, playing smoldering post punk, indie gloom rock, singed with some shoegaze guitars for good measure. Dark driving rhythms, reminiscent of She Wants Revenge, amid swirling guitars calling to mind Catherine Wheel and nerve tingling vocals somewhere between Peter Murphy and David Bowie. ... more
