Matthew Flores Great great album! How it took FOUR years for something this massive to be released, I'll never know! Wire meets The Cure and The Byrds! Every song is on it is killer! The lead singer, Douglas Burns had previously fronted Red Dons before he moved to Chicago and formed Endless Column. Though I dearly wished it not took this long for this great work to finally see a release, I'm grateful it's out there for all to enjoy on Bandcamp. Chicago's happy to call this band our own. Favorite track: Catching Up.

We’ve come together And by design I feel so out of touch And out of time I’m feeling useless And terrified I’m aging faster And I don’t know why We’re catching up To the other side Catching up To the perfect life I’m catching up With the times We lay together And watch our shows You say we’re out of sync How could you know

A moment of terror Realized The second your senses Come alive Can you remember Any time When all of your senses Were alive Behind your eyes and your ears All of the senses you fear Behind your eyes and your ears All of the senses you fear A moment of terror That’s realized The second your senses Come alive Behind your eyes and your ears All of the senses you fear Behind your eyes and your ears All of the senses you fear

What to do my dear With all these things from all these years Books by Harlequin, only fiction If you want ‘em A room of plastic dolls Bosson faces on the walls Spoons as souvenirs hang in the kitchen If you want ‘em Precious little fairy tales If you want ‘em They're here if you want ‘em They're here if you want ‘em Tomorrow I’ll be here Tomorrow I’ll be everywhere Take these souvenirs of my life child If you want ‘em Precious little fairy tales If you want ‘em Little precious fairy tales I you want ‘em

Endless summer running ‘til the end of time Endless for the flower generation It’s in our fingertips It’s in our DNA It’s on our children’s lips It’s in the airwaves Were we ever free? Every summer ends Endless summer in the air like acid rain Endlessly we bang the tambourine It’s in our fingertips It’s in our DNA It’s on our children’s lips It’s in the airwaves Were we ever free? Every summer ends

Close your eyes Come to rest Simple words Will help you to forget I have come As a friend In the end Darling let me in Parasite Give me life Parasite Soothing sounds Sustenance Hidden Warmth All in abundance I have come so far To depend On this dance Darling cut me in Parasite Give me life Parasite Close your eyes Come to rest Lets begin Darling let me in

My fashion companion Right before my eyes I need ‘em I need ‘em Such a good disguise Oh no Just when you thought you’d go out at night You find yourself looking in the mirror Just when you thought that things looked alright You find yourself looking in the mirror And the lights keep flashing on on and off On on and off looking in the mirror And you just can’t seem to get enough Oh no no no looking in the mirror, oh no My outfit my haircut See my perfect smile You believe it believe it Neither do I Oh no Just when you thought you’d go out at night You find yourself looking in the mirror Just when you thought that things looked alright You find yourself looking in the mirror And the lights keep flashing on on and off On on and off looking in the mirror And you just can’t seem to get enough Oh no no no looking in the mirror, oh no

Call me up girl If you want to learn What it’s like to have fun Call me up I’ll come And if you call on me I’ll be your man All the kids know Where you’re at is dumb Who’d ya think would care If you’d never been there So if you wanna leave I’ll be your man And if you call on me I’ll be your man

I see at last face down everything's a mess I see at last face down everything's a wreck All the presents you returned All the girls you ever charmed Knew that all your thoughtless words Would be counted in the end I see at last face down everything's a mess I see at last face down everything's a wreck Every chance to take a stand Never wanted to offend In your quest to get ahead Did you think they would forget, I bet Face down So long You’ll never be clean again

I’ve been waiting for the world to calm For a breath or chance to take I’ve been hoping that the dream would fade I know it’s a mistake Debts to pay Rules to follow You know I feel the same Debts to pay Rules to follow You know I feel the same about it Every minute that I wait for grace I fall behind and in the way I’ve been waiting for the dam to break Giant waves wash me away Debts to pay Rules to follow You know I feel the same about it Debts to pay Rules to follow You know I feel the same about it I’ve been waiting on the world

Wish you didn’t have to go I watched you walk away from me You didn’t have to play your hand I saw it was meant to be like you said You’ll see in time This is the life Well you had to see it through Not so much as a word from me I got ripped out of your address book It was the end of memory and we said You’ll see in time This is the life we’ve arrived
