Lyrics
i was laying back looking at time
wondering when those thoughts traced through my mind
what direction why and where they go
does it really matter these thoughts i sow?
i was picking flowers from the wall(3)

sometimes when i can't think what i signed. all those little things trace through my mind
the difference is that i don't care do you?
the difference is that i was there for you

I was picking flower from the wall
i was picking flowers feeling small


christ! you told me what to do, but i don't know what i should do
I I I can't help myself I I I I 'm not myself
I was picking flowers from the wall
i was picking flowers feeling small

see me feel small

NICE SENCE!
The place where the musical interval is doubtful however it
is, coming out, increases atmosphere

Let's Get Small
I like it. Really cool in a late 60's psychedelic kind of way. I
like the rawness to an extent but I think some noise
reduction on the line hiss is in order. A cool, catchy, trippy
song.

Like Steve Martin said, let's get small!

I Know
You guys are really the Residents on shrooms!
Those flowers in the picture look like aliens, I bet they eat
meat. They're scary.
I'm glad you redid this old song of yours - I enjoyed it
very much. The production is understated (so easy to get
too trippy on a song like this), the playing and singing
wonderfully match the lyrics and combine into a slightly
creepy psychedelic vibe.

Very cool, psychadelic vibes! The vocals are very good,
reminds of both The Doors and Ween... This would be
awesome live... D/L

moon dust in the mulch
it's too bad scratch 'n sniff audio doesn't exist (yet). this
would smell like strawberry covered daisies, freshly mowed
grass, & some teen spirit. i like the miniature echoes & how
the whole song seems to sway back & forth. great sound,
guys

Breakin' out my lava lamp
Nice. Listen through headphones it's really sweet. You
capture that '60s psychedelic vibe. I'll throw you a couple
more DNA traces. Arnold Layne-era Floyd and Donovan.
Way down, below the ocean, which I think is where your
guitars were. Nice dripping, whirling sound. Love the
guitars and vox on this one. Somehow that tape hiss
added to that vibe as well. Sort of like crackin' out the old
vinyl, dimming the lights and letting it spin. Nice job.

Very cool.
I see some people used psychedelic to describe this tune. That is very accurate. :) I could definitely sit back and chill with this on in the background. Doofy likes.

You sure have a cool tune here. I can hear all the
influences as others have mentioned, but you also have
your own unique twist to everything. Fun trippy lyrics,
too!!
