Parachute 2012 was a great introduction for The Rocket Summer the solo project of Bryce Avary. You can see from his "New Zealand Adventure" video on his YouTube channel that he loved the down under experience as well. One of the songs that I took away from Parachute for a lot of post festival thinking was called "Walls" by The Rocket Summer. Take a few minutes to read the lyrics, watch the video and leave a comment at the end of the post. Thanks!

The Rocket Summer

Lyrics to Walls :
The story of my life
I can’t quite comprehend
Don’t tell me if you know how it ends
When everywhere you go feels like a mirror maze
And you’re not sure how you’re stuck in this place

And you got nowhere else to go
And you’re lost within your own home
And you’re trying so hard to win
You keep trying its embarrassing
And how you don’t even know
But you know you’re off the tracks
And how did you get in here
Thinking how did I get in here

I’ll help you break the walls down
I’ll help you break the walls down
And bust you out and take you home
Believe in me you are not alone
I’ll help you break the walls down

Does anybody know a February wind
I was hoping that by now
We would be the end of this
When you open up a book
And read a thousand lines
But you don’t really read
You just move your eyes

And you got nowhere else to go
And you’re lost within your own home
And you’re trying so hard to win
You keep trying its embarrassing
And how you don’t even know
But you know you’re off the tracks
And how did you get in here
Thinking how did I get in here

I’ll help you break the walls down
I’ll help you break the walls down
And bust you out and take you home
Believe in me you are not alone
I’ll help you break the walls down

And I know this is random
But just this morning I saw
The sun reflecting off the window
Oh I don’t know why
But I thought you should know

When you got nowhere else to go
And you’re lost within your own home
And you’re trying so hard to win
You keep trying its embarrassing
And how you don’t even know
But you know you’re off the tracks
And how did you get in here
Thinking how did I get in here

I’ll help you break the walls down
I’ll help you break the walls down
And bust you out and take you home
Believe in me you are not alone
I’ll help you break the walls down

And all the weight will carry
Will disappear and I will willingly
Embrace your soul
Lay your head
So come on home
come on home
come on home
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
