    Black Camaro presents their award-evading pandemic-era full-length album on vinyl for the first time. Now you can own a piece of the past, while sacrificing a piece of your future. That's right, the time you'll spend listening to your very own copy of Daydream Delphi on vinyl is worth its weight in drachma. The money you spend purchasing your very own copy of Daydream Delphi on vinyl is worth its time in cubits. Buy it now and receive it eventually. Nothing special here, just a black piece of non-recyclable plastic with some questionably biodegradable paper labels, and a semi-decent color 2 panel insert with lyrics and thank you notes to people who will never read them. Made in Czech Republic.

lyrics

Athenian gold, no way will I pay.
drink the poison, and pop the champagne.

my accusers are faulty
παθολογικός ψεύτης
they told it so falsely
I forgot it’s about me
preparing their statements
a flair for beratements
ignoring the truth and the wisdom of ages
while filling their cages

since your inception you’ve heard this deception
you formed a consensus
the tale of man with his head in the Clouds
along with The Birds and The Wasps,
told with comedic intentions
they call me παιδεύω
but I make no pay, yo
you know where this comes from
Chaerephon made an assumption
asking the Pythian Oracle who’s the Athenian know-it-all
She said it was me, then he got on his steed
and told the whole city, the people are gullible

Fountains flow no more
forgive the rich and poor
Athenian gold, no way will I pay.
Drink the poison, and pop the champagne.

while sleeping it off in the prison of Athens
I was struck by a vision foretelling of sadness
the madness from the hands of democratic assassins.
on the third day I’ll suffer my sentence of death
from a chemical in umbelliferous plants.
better cancel my plans at the agora stands
the city that raised me is the city that blamed me.
like flayed meat, they wanna slay me
for contemplating the deities?
The Men of Athens should pay me!
but this is my final lesson
before I lay down to be infinitely rested.
and wherever in heaven we go when we’re 70,
heroes and poets of brevity welcome the lovers of wisdom
like Demeter yearned for Persephone
I have less than a minute left to breathe,
will you promise to pay a debt for me?

Fountains flow no more
forgive the rich and poor
Athenian gold, no way will I pay.
Drink the poison, and pop the champagne.
