lyrics

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

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
