about

The Parade Schedule Seattle, Washington

"Matt Kinder's sepia-folk style sets him apart from a lot of his contemporaries and his songwriting constantly captures loss, love, duty, and honor like few can. The Parade Schedule makes beautiful music that will stick with you like a familiar memory."
-Backseat Sandbar

"A brand of lo-fi folk that feels as gruff, dusty, heart-worn and honest as the best American literature".
-Wake the Deaf

Track Name: Winter
Winter has taken its course, leaving our skin a cracking blanket
Trees bare their fragile frames as the rain turns white
Covering the roofs and leaves without hesitation
Conquering the greens and browns
It makes our conversations

Vapors of love, frustration, and anger
Emotions exposed, floating from our lips

And words float on deaf air as nature follows its chosen path
Despite all our wishes the cold still bites
As the children play in the snow
Where the leaves once lived and lay
The children don't know

Vapors of love, frustration, and anger
Emotions exposed, floating from our lips
Track Name: Friends Come and Gone
Don't waste your breath on goodbyes
I'll be alright, dry your eyes
"But they're checking out as much as they're checking in
how many friends have come and gone?
How many friends have gone away?"

I know it's hard to see them go
But it's a part of life, just a chapter closed
In a story that has no end
"Yeah, but just look around, how many friends have come and gone?
How many friends have gone away?"

I know I'll see you again
Behind a golden curtain that will never close
Wrapped in light draped in the Savior's robes
The angels will join in song of the one who set us free
Just look around
There's not a single tear in these eyes
Track Name: I Never Owned You
Your words are broken glass
On bleeding feet I walk
A coat that's never warm
And the chill still fills my lungs

If you want to leave you don't have to ask
I never owned you

Your heart is made of gold
And everybody knows that I'm the one who's wrong here
And I won't let you go

If you want to leave you don't have to stay
I never owned you
Track Name: To Make You See
Who is the one you run to when your legs just give out?
Who is the one who tucks you in and tells you it'll all work out?
Who is the one who kisses your face while the actors do their thing on the silver screen?
It should be you and me but I'm left out in the cold
When will you learn you're beautiful just the way you were
And all these changes and rearranging your life, its not helping you
But I've got a plan to make you see
