BandAlternativeAdult Contemporary

World Echo creates music that is unexpected and melodic. They fuse rock with jazz, funk with jam music, and are as prolific as they are unique. Impossible to pigeon hole musically, these musicians continually reinvent themselves. Self written, self produced, and completely original.

Lyrics

Tell Me Lies

Written By: Jason Spillman

Tell Me Lies

You see the darkness
You see the light of day
So many things that I should
Just know how to say
Are you there right now?
Can you hear me calling you?
Your line is busy
There's no reply from you at all
Are you unhappy now
Or are you feeling life again
Selective memories and open lies
But I never know why
Point the finger at me I won't dare deny
The only way I can be justified
Is if you tell me lies
Lines and energy
send a signal from me to you
Static iciness
Can't convey my thoughts to you
If you're there right now
Won't you please pick up the phone
Hard justice
Drives reality right now
Words and actions
That can never be undone
Don't you know it haunts me all the time
Now I always know why
Point the finger at me
Hang me out to dry
Come on it's easy
Please give it a try
Won't you tell me lies
Tell me lies big and small
Tell me lies tell it all
Tell me lies again and again
So I can tell you lies

Running

Written By: Jason Spillman

Running

The physical glow of your halo is making it hard to see
Your head is so tight - no wrong or right
What you need is some balance some help on the way
One night in the gutter one beautiful day
Put it all in your pocket just put it away
You live for tomorrow I'm living today
We're running

A twinkle of dust just floating away
A voice in the crowd with something to say
You're just a fish out of water a hole in the sky
A veer towards nothing a poke in the eye
Can you hear what I'm saying?
Do you see what I mean?
It all blends together but it's plain to be seen
We're running

It comes out of nowhere and pushes you down
It leaves you bewildered and looking around
You push your faith in the faces of everyone in sight
Your vision is blocked by this fanatical light
Everyone is your brother if you choose them to be
Classified by something besides humanity
Is stunning
