daniele Ouroboros is a series of lo-fi vignettes portraying icy moods, calming voices, & wayward reverberations. It's the soundtrack to a warming season and solemn meals. The reflections it recalls are a modest tangent of dreams; like a lover’s telegram from the French Riviera, a silvery-blue swoony backdrop, or the quotidian places where you come to terms with your own apprehensions. The strongest companions to these drifts of anxiety is the pitter-patter of "Rose Water" & the innocuous theme "ego 18". Favorite track: ego 18.

Track Name: on babble
you know you see in symbols most of the time

Track Name: desert man
in this ember hot summer
of arizona's
they wondered why his feet
appeared to be melted
stuck to the hot ground below him

each and every passerby
found themselves at loss
for an explanation
unable to pull apart
his
motivations and intentions

each every passerby found themselves at loss

and he really doesnt know what hes doing x6
he doesnt know what he is doing x2
Track Name: blue glass
sit still x2
its harder than you thought

its quite funny
the way that i like to talk x4

but im not trusting my limbs to rise
or my swamp heart to beat enough blood around my body
there's so much an upset stomach can do
their permanence dwindles when not dissected

sit still x2
its harder than you thought
Track Name: ego 18
footprints in the spring snow
his conviction of having no purpose

the ego of an 18 year old x4

hes got beautiful white hands x2
beautiful white hands

the ego of an 18 year old
18 year old x2

he lives for the emotion x2
Track Name: oil lantern
the more i drink the easier the thoughts of the heart pour out into others laps excessively and unasked for

you meet your match when x3

the more i drink the easier the thoughts of the heart pour out into others laps excessively and unasked for

go outside
cause i just wanna go outside x3

your match when
you meet your match when
Track Name: hangnails
the bite of detachment clings onto your hangnail hands
mother was a latchkey kid she brought me up with plans
so i'll check your irises though pupils are stuck wide
a night has passed over me
and into your mind you hide
these rubbing alcohol tears fall at watching seas rise

a severe condition lost with no subscription
and between this fiction
dormant pains create friction

to the basis of solid reality i flee
lacking pure connections i'm with no one to ground me
though my love for you grew
reciprocation knew
that now romantically a rift between us tore
eating at my fingertips all the time you kept score
a cavern devoid of words
ate up all the love you felt
Track Name: eve
i know x2

ive spent many years

know very well x2

i overthink and dig myself into holes
but in the end i know
that it's better to be fond of the dawn
the sun that breaks the thawing cold

i know x2

i've spent many years

that's it better to be fond of the dawn
the sun that breaks the thawing cold x2
Track Name: curvature
curvature of that glass on the table
that curvature of that glass on the table x7
that

you sure wish you were a vicar in a small town in england
but
youve never been a holy man
youve never been a holy man

curvature of that glass on the table
that curvature of that glass on the table x3

you sure wish you were a vicar in a small town in england
but
youve never been a holy man x2
Track Name: always wont be true
cause you that always i wont be true x7

cause you know i'll never be true x4

you dont know what youre doing x2

you dont know where youre going
you dont know where you go
