we exist before our essence but you said i was wrong and something comes between us what do you say thirsting for the arrow to shoot ourselves again and time becomes important when there’s only so much left the fear of fear is power to nothings really there and nothing will come between us what do you say we are whirlwinds who wish were were rocks

She’s followed by A different shadow Lazy sparkles in her hair Can you give her A lantern To take away her cares She’s passing through A glitter snowstorm See the flakes fall everywhere All night long The shadow’s snowing When she wakes they disappear Got another demon to fight Got another demon tonight Got another demon to light Got another demon to fight Got another demon The fire will burn tall Sparks light A glitter rainbow She’s a thunderstorm delight Keep your eyes On her lantern Reflecting all her light Got another demon to fight Got another demon tonight Got another demon The fire will burn tall ©2017 Todd Parker / BMI

Time's Moving fast It won't last So get in line And start feeling fine And when You think through All the things That you do You really come alive And now Summer's gone An attack To the lies You wanna realize And when You see through All their eyes All your sighs You really come alive And now Summer’s gone Just a song In your mind For really nobody And time’s Moving fast It won’t last So get in line To start feeling fi

The door’s ajar And holds the way The photo’s light Shadows at play The widest lens Will have a say Some time to sink Reflecting clay Into the mirror Reflections gone Not what they seemed You slip into A cloud of steam Can’t see beyond Fluorescent beam You wonder why The sleepless dream Into the mirror A broken glass Will stand all time You don’t believe What’s in your mind Slipping down Too far to clim= Sparks delight What’s left behind Into the mirror

Careful what you wish ‘cause you might get it Careful what wish because you might see It comes along the way if you just let it Might be on the road to Tennessee Packed up all your memories and took them for a ride They were all you needed them to be But the future’s the past so you threw them away Then you realized that you were finally free On Halloween you went as a coyote I saw you on the side of the road I told you all my dreams and then you scurried Howling to the sky with all you know Letting go can bring so much sorrow But only if you think eternally You’re with me now, that’s all that matters The scarlet night becomes another sea

Sounds like she wants to fly But she’s wasting away Calm down her inner voice Her silhouette starts to fade She’s in a dream Ride the tiger through the fire Crack the sticks of the cage Dig deeper earthly desire She gets to star in the play She’s in a dream Motionless The fatal sting Feel the doubt Extended wing Emotional Ambitionless Slowly move the line To elude the rest Sounds like she wants to fly But she’s wasting away Calm down her inner voice Her silhouette starts to fade She’s in a dream She’s in a dream She’s in a dream She’s in a dream Motionless The fatal sting Feel the doubt Extended wing Emotional Ambitionless Slowly move the line To elude the rest She’s in a dream She’s in a dream She’s in a dream She’s in a dream

about

A curated compilation of the decade's tunes from Todd Parker, leader/vocalist/guitarist of 90's Neo-Psychedelic rockers, Tadpoles.

"...witchcraft is simply about using the power of the universe and the mind to attract wants and esiires. It's about being in tune with Earth's natural resrouces and using them to mystically quench a spiritual thirst."

REVIEWS:

GREG WALLACE - THE ELECTRIC FERRETS, LOS ANGELES, CA, APRIL 2020:

"Every song is fantastic. Jangles, sparkles, bangles, and beads.Very beautiful at times, moody at others, but always set in a universe ruled by Syd Amazing stuff, Todd. It also has a sound similar to the more far out, less 60s grounded, but still inspired by the 60s, neo psyche bands of the 80s. Loved every track. "
