about

Echo Revolution San Diego, California

Echo Revolution is an alternative pop band from San Diego with driving rhythms often reminiscent of War-era U2, but also sometimes producing melodies akin to those of Ian McCulloch or Nada Surf, or harmonies that tip their hat to Lennon-McCartney.

Echo has been heard on MTV shows (Real World, Jersey Shore, etc.) and on radio from the US to the Radio Penguin (Russia) or DJ Lord Litter (Germany).

Track Name: Open Your Eyes
put the bag back, put the bag back in the seat
take a walk down your shady city street
you will know when it happens to you
you've held onto, these untruths

took a long time, took a long time to decide
found the answers here inside
what a maze of decisions to make, to finally take...
the right steps

open your eyes, open your eyes, open your eyes
to the world all around you
did you look?
did you look?

had a grand plan, had a good plan for it all
helping your thieves to scale another wall
is it true what they say about you?
you always do what you're told?

open your eyes, open your eyes, open your eyes
to the world all around you
did you look?
did you look?
you nevermind, you nevermind, you nevermind
what trouble has taught you
we are good, we are good

(you got me)

open your eyes, open your eyes, open your eyes
to the world all around you
did you look?
did you look?
you nevermind, you nevermind, you nevermind
what trouble has taught you
we are good, we are good
Track Name: Counterfeit Sunshine
I'm down but I know
I know where you are headed
you will go, 'til your heart tells you
it is so warm in the house
and you come to figure out
that this place can't be found on any map

you'll be safe in the night
say it wrong, but it's alright
we can't be poets all the time
and our words are just counterfeit sunshine

alone and I go
I go to seek high places in the night
where the height allows my eyes to see
what's all around me
what is lost and now has found me
in a place that felt so random at the time

you'll be safe in the night
say it wrong, but it's alright
we can't be poets all the time
and our words are just counterfeit sunshine

you'll be safe in the night
say it wrong, but it's alright
we can't be poets all the time
and our words are just counterfeit sunshine
Track Name: High Road
I wrote a letter to you
you wrote a letter to me
it's hard to not think about you

some days are better for you
some days are better for me
it's hard to not be around you

and you take
one more day... of a life
when you know
there's a way... to make it right

I had a lonely friend
he had a worried mind too
we both chose to take the high road

oh, we shed our tears
ah, for lovers untrue
regret would besiege the low road

and you take
one more day... of a life
when you know
there's a way... to make it right

well you know
there's a way... to make it right
well you know
there's a way
there's a way
there's a way... to make it right
Track Name: Drag Me Away
no ordinary love, I feel it drag me away
why am I thinking of the words I know she can't say

I can see it in her eyes
maybe she has moved on
but I can't tell you why
my heart can hold on

to wishes that we made before we knew anything
and love we didn't know was never meant to remain

I can see it in her eyes
maybe she has moved on
but I can't tell you why
the heart can hold on

hold you tight
I know you
want me...

a crazy thing to let the heart want what it can't have
but maybe what I want is just a chance to go back

I can see it in her eyes
maybe she has moved on
but I can't tell you why
the heart can hold on

hold you tight
I know you
want me to
Track Name: Addiction
addiction
a weaker man than when you made me
is it true that you won't take me anymore

convictions
well, I had more when I was with you
now I'm not sure what to do with you anymore

and you told me
the heart is a funny thing
but if you trust it
your love could be anything

reactions
my first is usually the best one
sometimes I wish I could arrest them
and just watch it take place

and passion
you look to hard and you won't find it
the urgency will leave you blinded
to the sun in your face

and you told me
the heart is a funny thing
but if you trust it
your love could be anything

and you told me
the heart is a funny thing
but if you trust it
your love could be anything

addiction
a weaker man than when you made me
but I don't need you to save me anymore
Track Name: Good To Be Home
it's good to be home
it's good to be in between the lines again
I feel alone
when there aren't trees around my bed again

it's good to be home
it's good to be home
it's good to be home

I know you see
I know you see these things the same as me
so how would you feel
how would you feel if I told you I see

it's good to be home
it's good to be home
it's good to be home

(oohs)

it's good to be home
it's good to be home
it's good to be home

(oohs)
Track Name: Mt. Washington
you are found all around
high in trees
shifting sees
come with me restless soul
for only love can make you whole

we will find a way
find a way to climb this mountain
follow me follow me follow me to
higher ground
I will lead you to, lead you through the wooded wilderness
I'm not afraid
Mt. Washington

fifty men in twenty tents
and so my love
I don't make sense
come to me ailing friend
and let your bones find life again

we must find a way
find a way to climb this mountain
follow me follow me follow me
to higher ground
I will lead you to, lead you through the wooded wilderness
I'm not afraid
Mt. Washington
won't strand you on
Mt. Washington
don't be afraid (no, no, no)
Mt. Washington
for you I made
Mt. Washington
