Delphi 03:18
Can’t remember what we came here for The summer still precedes us like folklore We knew the only way to fly was to let go and try But then we stumbled upon Tuesday and only wondered why And all the “what if” conversation was quickly running dry So now ours is a flag with no wind Can’t remember what we stayed here for Options are decreasing, that’s for sure We flew to California thinking that we’d set sail And all the prophecy foretold that we could not fail But then we came ashore in Delphi and chased our tail And we found no Aeloian wind All these things Recollect my dreams Every passing day Takes them farther away

Up 04:59
“Le mont” is calling You were here before you Knew how to find it So help us find it You’ve got nowhere left to run to It’s just another day at the park It’s just another talk with yourself As for truth, I think I’ll find it alone But then you show me that I’m lonely And I crawl my way back home To you You get up You get up You get… It’s just another scene I’ll abhor As for love, you know I’m looking for more In ascending, I must leave you behind One last look goodbye, you start to cry But say that you don’t mind Do you?

Monorail 03:30
Sit inside today Because I've forgotten how to play Paralyzed by choice Even I don't know my voice But when I say that nothing's wrong Nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong Nothing's wrong, nothing's wrong Nothing's wrong... Nothing's ever as it seems I live inside a temporal dream So wake me up at last I realize that this, too, shall pass But in the meantime show me proof I distract myself, I remain aloof Make up for all I lack The Apple Store is a golden calf We deify, consume If there's an elephant that's in the room It's probably pink, looks like a friend Invited guest of all the ends we seek Everything's in hand I guess we do this just because we can What else would we do? Go off in search of something "true"? But the practical / ideal When we evolve, will we still feel? Everything's at hand I guess we all just do the best we can As long as I get paid In the end I'm happy if I'm getting laid And as for truth I'd rather comfort than to suffer that pursuit I defer everything I might become Dreams are on the shelf So I seek outside myself In the absence of my joy I'm pacified with brand new toys But I'm not sure there's a point If I can do more but be less And if there's no way I can die Even life is second best Well I have little doubt As we kill ourselves we're finding out Just what this really means Realize that we're running out of scenes And then we're gone

I don’t want your love I don’t need your love

Watching others live your dream Take the ore found in the seam I hope that we don't move too fast Let's take it slow, let's make it last Couldn't prioritize Now I'm way inside the lines Retail clerk resign I want a million dollar prime All we have is hope Come wash your eyes with soap You know I found a second boat Deluded we elope Suddenly find that I Made no choice at all Now whether right or wrong I decide

Tuesday 04:05
Nomads today With a map and compass to lead the way There’s no desert here No freight trains and no clean air Targets out of range Scared suspicious, avoiding change Solitary door We beat our chests, but we’re insecure So just don’t forget To honor that Of which you were It’s all a blur… And where I’m from And all I’ve done Well, it’s all lost With the starting gun Such a lovely sight The North Star is a neon light All variables known Button-down, fist-pump, thriving throne Only clones and cans Basement daze and cover bands Four years and we say, “We loved the bar but we could not stay” I wish I hadn’t worried so much (It’s only Tuesday anyway)

Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh! just kidding

Foxhole in winter But still you are safe You come home to feed But you still can’t escape Snow falling slowly In the woods, you find peace Still for a moment Recall memories Don’t think about what could have been Just focus on the snow Foxhole in winter I know we have far But we’ll take the hill With our Tennessee Jar Just like a child In war is where you live If you’re still alive You’ve got something to give I know you’re scared that we might die Just embrace uncertainty When we unlearn the greatest lie We’ll be finally free Come here my brother And I’ll make you safe We’ll fight this together We’ll make our escape I know we’re entrenched But we’ll still find a way We’ll turn on the hunter He’ll now be our prey

Legos 03:49
I woke up You were here By my side It’s my favorite dream Last week we watched Home movies of Me down in the basement Legos on the floor Did this boy know At five years old What he might build then And when he would give it up? Built a fort Hid there for a While before he left and then Finally tore it down What will my kids think when they see Pictures of this semi-mountain? Daddy still had hair when he was Standing at the Trevi Fountain Maybe he had dreamt an ocean Far too great for them to pass it Once an empire now a relic All these words they never lasted When I worry Though we don’t fight Are we fated like the rest? Does this ever last? Maybe it will end Six years might pass I’ll find you again and then Pick the pieces up

Chauvet 05:30
Every night I dream of a light not seen by day Casting shadows on the wall in an endless phantom masquerade My primary means will keep me forlorn 'til I'm a starving grape Full of vim and essence, this moment is the only place we can escape Paint my reveries all over these walls for them to see

about

Juno Day Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Juno Day was born on a winding, naranja-filled street in Seville, Spain. The date was May 1, 2007. It was a Tuesday. Chris and Zac were walking back from the centro, en route to Ana's apartment on Calle Enladrillada. They reminisced about Antonio, The Cranberries, and their nascent dream of making music together. That's when the Universe spoke, and Chris wrote it down in a Five Star notebook. ... more
