about

This new album functions as a medley where each songs flows into each other seamlessly. While most of the songs can be listened to on their own they work as a single musical piece with instrumentation and lyrics all functioning together.

All the material has been written and recorded from May to June of 2017. While it has some of my shortest songs (and also my first instrumental) a lot of these songs are more complex than my older work. Some songs have more chords in two minutes than most of my other albums put together. It also features much denser instrumentation than my previous albums with a lot of songs having around 10 guitars playing simultaneously. In many ways it's Parachute Words' most positive and bright record.

Everything has been played and recorded by Martino Gasparrini in his bedroom studio.

Track Name: Theme from "Hope"
I know I can't feel me without you
She tries in a heartbeat But I
Mascarade myself completely and
Recall a heartache portrait

Press on she tells me and don't
Backtrack on what we've agreed
Hold on to you heart as it

Has some shine
Please don't forget that

Hope hope is all she is and
Hope hope will help me as I
Feel lost a lot of the time but she
Helps me brighten up

I can't wave my hand so she
Holds it up for me for when
She tires I slip completely and we
Fight for space in my body

Get up she tells me and don't
Forget what we've agreed
Bring back you heart as it

Has some worth
Please don't forget that

Hope hope is all she is and
Hope hope will help me as I
Feel lost a lot of the time but she
Helps me brighten up

Hope treasures
As I gather myself
Hope lingers
With my broken fingers

And I don't know what's going to happen
Help me with this lonely feeling
I can't keep it I can't dream
Something's going to come to me now
Track Name: Twist My Arm
So he's slipped away
As I trip along
Oh break my face
With your foolish ways
Right now

So she's broken down
As I judge myself
Oh hold my heart
Can't you feel it sweat
Right now

Oh help me out
Don't break me down
I stare straight ahead
Help me with this ache

Now we've honest fire
As I share desire
Oh twist my arm
It works like a charm
Right now

Oh help me out
Don't break me down
I stare straight ahead
Help me with this ache
Track Name: Mask
I know that I lost you dear
when I put this mask on
It's too late my dear
Thoughts are tumbling out together
When it's down life unfolds
And I'm not scared to say that
I need you because
I hold you dear
As it unfolds over all of my body

I wish you could read
All the songs I wrote for you
They are angry and petty
For I give up sometimes
And become indifferent and
Forget to reach out
Track Name: I Don't Mind
I don't mind a stab in the heart
A whisper in the dark
A Ransome of my mind
A thoughtless goodbye
A sunburnt stolen kiss

But from you it all changes
I miss you so deeply
I love you so steeply so
Please don't say goodbye so
Please don't fade away oh
Please don't forget me oh
Please don't say goodbye

Only you can fix me
Spins my broken mind

Hope hope is all she is
Hope hope wont forget me
As I feel lost a lot of the time and
She helps me brighten up
Track Name: He/She
He pens a dirge
She holds on to desire
He blends into the mirror
She sounds the alarm

Fumble for questions
Ramble for answers

Now now as I feel the pressure
She takes a swing at the clouds
As he leaves
And she breaths

He cuts under the skin
She builds with dreams
He takes the backroads
She speaks in tongues

Fumble for questions
Ramble for answers

Now now as I feel the pressure
She takes a swing at the clouds
As he leaves
And she breaths
Track Name: Interlude/Light Return
Now you know he can't be saved and
I can see that as I'm falling
Who is there No don't go
I can't do this without you

Now you know he can't be saved and
I can see that as I'm falling
Who is there No don't go
I can't do this without you

Now you know he can't be saved and
I can see that as I'm falling
Who is there No don't go
I can't do this without you

Now you know he can't be saved and
I can see that as I'm falling
Who is there No don't go
I can't do this without you
Track Name: Body To Break
I need my body to break
At the seams
As I lift my pain for none to see

I need my body to wreck
(I can't go home)
So I can pawn
(When you're home)
All my thoughts for all to see
(When you're told when you're home)

I need to recall
The gentle ways I bruise myself

I need a Body of a leader
To make me brave
To make me honest and forgive

I can't look up
And see myself
Starring back
At me
Track Name: Holding On
I'm glad you can't hear
All the thoughts I have of you
I've pushed them away far from view
There are pretty angry and needlessly cruel
It's a caveat I break with myself

Why don't you feel this too
Why don't you feel angry too

For you got to throw me
And so you left me
And so I keep holding on

For you got to break me
And so you shake me
And so I keep holding on

For you got to toss me
And so you left me
And so I keep holding on
Track Name: Outro
She clings on so tightly
I hold on to selfishness
And that I'm alone

She holds on so tightly
Hope that she will get me
Out of this dark
Room
