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

Track Name: (born in the 80s?)
We domesticate, then replicate our core
No return to dust, autochthonous no more
In some future century, will we still be
Track Name: By Default, Onward March
In your midday pacing
You never move as quickly
As your ambitious visions while you lie in bed

When morning comes, rise slowly
You'll hesitate much faster
And organize the reasons not to start today

Don't look but someone's watching
You worry they might hear you
Go take a breath of fresh air, you need to clear your head

And when you're finally ready
When your voice is shallow
You'll wake up just in time to see a setting sun

You lie down falling fast asleep
And the day's only memory
Is an image from some waking dream

Some great idea comes to mind
But you let yourself drift away
Keep your eyes closed, a numbing dream will come
Track Name: Blue Milk
A feeling so surreal
I'm lost in thoughts
That seem to dance
Track Name: The Home Stretch
One last lap
Slow your stride
Your senses awake
Light fills your eyes

You may smile
Your memory sighs
So bittersweet
Are these last goodbyes

Then you'll find
Your eyes will see
Your whole life
Much differently

Colors reborn
In a different light
As you prepare
For your final night

Once you had
Now your sand's been swallowed
Swallowed by the sea

Climb this hill
Behold this sight
This endless day
Soon turns into night
