Track Name: Im Confessing
The truth is gonna hurt. I just want to know the truth not some version they watered down to keep me feeling uncertain. You got an ailment, there’s a drug their prescribing and you can bet the politicians are lying. I’m Confessing, I’m done pretending. The truth is gonna hurt. I’m Confessing, I’ve lost my way. The truth is gonna hurt. I’m Confessing, these prayers I been sending ain’t getting no answering. The truth is gonna hurt.
Are you an alien, a god or a person? And in the afterlife, do we all stop hurting? How about the children who are starving and dying? While our population keeps on multiplying, tell me. I’m Confessing, I’m done pretending. The truth is gonna hurt. I’m Confessing, I’ve lost my way. The truth is gonna hurt. I’m Confessing, these prayers I been sending ain’t getting no answering. The truth is gonna hurt.
Can’t they find an antidote or some syrum? Do you love your government, do you fear them? Its plain to see, were wrecking our planet and once it’s done we can’t reverse all the damage, no,no,no
I’m Confessing, I’m done pretending. The truth is gonna hurt. I’m Confessing, I’ve lost my way. The truth is gonna hurt. I’m Confessing, these prayers I been sending ain’t getting no answering. The truth is gonna hurt.
Track Name: Los Angeles
My oh my, it’s so hot today. Living, living in LA.
And so another day begins with palm trees dancing in the wind.
I check my pockets but I find there ain’t nothing much inside. This is the city I call my home.
So through these city blocks I roam and on these streets I roam alone. I see some vatos rolling low avoiding the popo, this is the city I call my home.
The cars are jammed on the freeway. The smog is hanging thick today. All the people rush to be on time, they all running way behind, this is the city I call my home.
Picked up a dub to get me by. Things seem much easier when you high. On the 105 past LAX, the beach is just ahead, this is the city I call my home.
Nothing but ocean in my way. I’m far away from her today. And though I’ll be returning soon to the dust and dirt and gloom, she’s still the city I call my home.
Her colors shine purple and gold, a pirate patch with no skull bone. Is there someplace you’d rather be? Because there’s no where else for me, Los Angeles, you are my home.
Track Name: Good Morning
When the sun peaks through my window and a new day begins. Well I greet each and every sunray. Another day I can be thankful for each breath I take, oh life’s just one big bouquet. And there’s a sparrow up on the rooftop singing every day and he’s always got a story to tell.
C’mon now and twist and roll. Grab that lighter, we’ll burn one slow. We’ll chase our troubles away, ya. C’mon now and twist and roll. Free your mind, free your soul. We’ll chase our troubles away because every day is a good, good morning
And you’re good one, what a beauty. I’m so happy to be lying in this bed with you. Senorita, you’re my weakness but I just gotta say, I’m crazy about the things that you do. I’m gonna to take my little board out in the deep salt water and try and find a wave again.
C’mon now and twist and roll. Grab that lighter, we’ll burn one slow. We’ll chase our troubles away, ya. C’mon now and twist and roll. Free your mind, free your soul. We’ll chase our troubles away because every day is a good, good morning
C’mon, lets burn one nice and slow because we ain’t got nowhere to go so why don’t we waste it away? Because I’ve got nothing on my mind and I’m just hoping we can find us a cool spot in the shade. See I woke up feeling good today and I finally chased my blues away so what more can I say. C’mon now and twist and roll. Grab that lighter, we’ll burn one slow. We’ll chase our troubles away, ya. C’mon now and twist and roll. Free your mind, free your soul. We’ll chase our troubles away because every day is a good, good morning
Track Name: Hollywood Girl
Hollywood Girl, world renowned, flashbulbs flickering in the crowd, see how they all just love you now, the queen of the big screen is rocking her crown. Hollywood Girl, sinking stone, lying next to someone feeling alone. It seems the cameras are in her way but she loves the spotlight so it’s ok. Hollywood Girl, what’s the deal? Fresh out of rehab, how do you feel? Its gotta be tough when every friend sticks a knife in your back when your not looking.
So wherever you go. I want you to know that I think your special , ya. And them tears, your starting to cry, well you’ll be alright. Just know that your special.
Hollywood Girl, it’s near the end, sweet senorita dancing in the wind. Pulled by the lust, the greed and sin, the edges were slippery, you just fell in. Hollywood Girl, lost control. The sex and the drugs and the rock n’ roll. Just 18 when you left your home, the city of angels swallowed your soul. Hollywood Girl, don’t make a sound. The light of the sunsets got you now. Looking like a girl from a smaller town, looking like a girl I used to care about.
So wherever you go. I want you to know that I think your special , ya. And them tears, your starting to cry, well you’ll be alright. Just know that your special.
And you’ll conquer the whole world once you discover it.
Your faith will be renewed once you discover it.
Your spread your wings and fly once you’ve discovered it.
You’ll hold your head up high once you’ve discovered it.
They tried to make me go to rehab but I said no, no, no
So open up another bottle and let it flow, flow, flow
Track Name: Siete Cervezas
See this right here, this right here, this right here, well this was your love song. Ya, this right here, this right here, this right here, well this was your love song. Siete Cervezas, I’ve got you on my mind, oh yes I think about you all the time. Remembering the days when you were mine. Siete Cervezas, I miss you everyday, I just can’t make your memory go away. Just one more sip and then I’ll be ok. But I’m so different now, let me show you. I’m a brand new kind of man. I don’t blame you, I understand, I know why. But I can’t take the fact that it’s over so I keep these bottles in hand and drink them as fast as I can and that’s no lie.
Siete Cervezas, your walking through the door with some dude I have never seen before. I hang my head and then I drink some more. Siete Cervezas, why’d you have to come to this place here to try and have your fun? If not for bad luck I guess I’d have none. I know I wasn’t there when you needed me I was off with the band. I don’t blame you, I understand, I know why. But I can’t take the fact that it’s over so I keep these bottles in hand and drink them as fast as I can and that’s no lie.
This right here, this right here, this right here, this was your love song. I made you wait, my mistake, its too late, where did I go wrong?
Siete Cervezas, Ocho cervezas, Nueve cervezas, Diez cervezas, Once cervezas, Doce. cervezas, Trece cervezas.
Track Name: Eazy
They call me Eazy cause I’m alright. I don’t bother nobody and don’t start no fights. I got a little bit of green that we can smoke all night. They call me Eazy, I’m alright.
See this here is a drinking song. Loop the track, spin it all night long. We gonna puff like Cheech & Chong, Snoop-Doggy-Dogg, six in the morn. Why don’t we go spend the afternoon chilling out back by the pool. The suns hot, the rays are strong, so lean back and throw some lotion on. A couple shots with some lime and salt. Were pretty drunk, its nobodys fault. C’mon girl, I think that we oughta polish off the rest of that bottle. Then we’ll run up to your room. Your boyfriends gone but he’ll be back soon.It feels so right, it can’t be wrong. They call me Eazy and this is my song.
They call me Eazy cause I’m alright. I don’t bother nobody and don’t start no fights. I got a little bit of green that we can smoke all night. They call me Eazy, I’m alright.
We got a lazy song, a laid back groove. So chill out with the attitude. I’m just quiet, I’m not rude, don’t f*** with me , I’m not in the mood. You off work? You should roll through. Your man’s kind of wack but he can come too. Beers in the back, the fridge is full. Go ahead, lean back, get comfortable. We got a big screen, a big flat panel. Crashed out watching nature channel. I flip over to CNN and Al Queda’s back again. I flip back aborigines are chasing monkees through the trees. Well, im down to save the rainforest, peace to the world, here comes the chorus.
They call me Eazy because I’m alright. I don’t bother nobody and don’t start no fights. I got a little bit of green that we can smoke all night. They call me Eazy, I’m alright.
See I just sit around and watch the paint dry. You don’t have to deal with failure if you don’t try. No, I don’t cut the grass I let the weeds grow and I’ve always dug the turtle because he moves slow.
Track Name: Black Leaf
See the bottle or the needle or some pills. They all eventually find a way to kill. I’ll break it down and show you what I mean. I’m the Black Leaf falling off the family tree.
See the Black Leaf blew away from the family he loved and though he loved them back, he knew that he couldn’t stay. He hit the streets with a fistful of dollars and a 9 millimeter tucked in his waist. They say that crime doesn’t pay but you’d be surprised how much you can make. He had to make something else up out of himself because his first plan backfired. No, no long goodbyes, he thought it best if he just left suddenly. It was like a gust of wind picked him up and then dropped him somewhere sunny. A new attitude where Dodger blue was the color of money. He put some ink on a pad, realized what he had and sat and wondered. That if he worked real hard just maybe he’d get discovered. But soon enough those old evil things, they all came back and grabbed him. And the fire he lit in the pit of his stomach became abandoned.
See the bottle or the needle or some pills. They all eventually find a way to kill. And this is what its like when junkie’s dream. I’m the Black Leaf falling off my family’s tree.
Man, how’d this happen? Face down on the floor, curled up in a ball lying on a blanket. I never had it that bad, I’ve just always had this deep feeling of sadness. And though I’ve tried and tried, I could never find a way to repair it. I isolate myself so that no one else can see how unhappy that I truly am but it’s about to end and its going to end badly. So to my mother who’s all alone, I want to say I’m sorry. And to my father I disappointed, just know I loved you. Because the circles are too dark under my eyes these days to fake it. If I could find a bottle of cyanide, I’d take it. I don’t feel to well, I don’t think I’m going to make it. I’m ready death, come take me in my sleep. These are the final words of the Black Leaf.
See the bottle or the needle or some pills. They all eventually find a way to kill. And know you know exactly what I mean. The Black Leaf’s fallen off the family tree.
Oh Danny Boy. Oh Danny Boy. The pipes, the pipes are calling Danny Boy.
Track Name: The Blueprint
Life moves fast, moves fast. Life moves fast.
Can you hear me from up in the clouds. I’m still trying to figure it out. There’s no blueprint to what this life’s about. I haven’t bothered you in a while but I need your help now.
I grew up in an old 3 family, my grandparents lived right below me. When Grandma died the whole thing changed, Mom and Dad went separate ways. As we lowered Grandma into the ground, that god damn dirt, that terrible sound. I saw a light shimmer in the distance and saw you smiling all the way from heaven. Your kind eyes looking down, telling me not to cry or frown. That you were just off on your journey, its too bad you had to leave early.
Can you hear me from up in the clouds. I’m still trying to figure it out. There’s no blueprint to what this life’s about. I haven’t bothered you in a while but I need your help now.
Slide down and let me pour some sorrow, its kind of bitter and its hard to swallow. Best friends, we were good to go, we’d put some jacks in the spokes of our bicycles. We used to break them bottles and make the cops come. I miss talking to you one and one and I’ll never have another friend like you again.
Can you hear me from up in the clouds. I’m still trying to figure it out. There’s no blueprint to what this life’s about. I haven’t bothered you in a while but I need your help now. I’ve got this lonely void in my soul. I’ve had some trouble letting you go. And though I’ll treasure the times that we shared. Sometimes I still just miss you so bad.
Track Name: White Plains
I’m White Plains bound, the wheels are off the ground. Soon I’ll be touching down in my hometown. White Plains bound. White Plains bound. So if you happen to see me, pick me up. And if your gonna save me, well hurry up. Cause I keep pouring liquor into cups finding when I’m sober, it hurts too much. I been soaking in your memories, I got them all. Praying that I’ll get just one miracle. I’m feeling so confused in my present state. Your absolutely right, you can’t relate. Oh and time won’t change, no, I know I’ll always feel this way. I’m so lost here without you. Without you.
I’m White Plains bound, the wheels are off the ground. Soon I’ll be touching down in my hometown. White Plains bound. White Plains bound.
So just give me some kind of reason, something real? This emptiness surrounds me, it feels so real. Seems I’m all out of love that’s pure and true. Cause everything I had, I gave to you. I’ll carry on your name, I will bear the torch. My fingertips are burnt up from being scorched. I’m hollowed out inside like a wooden horse. And if you cut my skin I’d just bleed remorse. Oh and time won’t change, no, I know I’ll always feel this way. I’m so lost here without you. Without you.
White Plains now, is just another town. The leaves are turning brown, heavy lies the crown in White Plains now. White Plains now. White Plains bound, the wheels are off the ground. Soon I’ll be touching down in my hometown. White Plains bound. White Plains bound.
Oh and time won’t change, I always know I’ll always feel this way in White Plains now. I’m in White Plains now.
Track Name: Just Come Back
I guess I couldn’t give you the finer things.
Or were you stuck by the glitter and gold? Oh that gold
Did you feel you were wasting your life away or settling in the fading sun? Well tell me who’s gonna love you now? Who’s gonna love you now? I keep every word you said stuck right here in my head. I think the smartest thing to do is tell you I’m still in love with you. So just come back. Baby, just come back.
So did you buy someone else’s promises? Did somebody leave you out in the cold? Ain’t it cold? Or did your fork in the road turn out to be to tough to travel alone. So tell me who’s gonna love you now? Tell me who’s gonna love you now? I keep every word you said stuck right here in my head. Oh and the smartest thing to do is tell you I’m still in love with you. Just come back. Baby, just come back.
We can walk in the shade of the willow trees to find some shelter while were walking on our dusty road. And so you say no more mistakes, you just want me. Well c’mon give me one more try, you better never let me go.
Track Name: Gray
Are you trying to show me a sign? With these nightmares trapped in my mind. And as the last sands pass through the hourglass, will I burn in a lake of fire?And in the darkness of this room, they’ll be coming to take me soon to a place from where I cannot escape to face my impending doom.
Well you and I, were not the same. You’re colorful and I am gray. Ya, I lay back and feel the avalanche coming, tied to the tracks but the train keeps running. Lord help me, somebody save me, I’m losing my mind, I’m about to go crazy. Im not right from the things I’ve been seeing. Can you imagine being afraid of sleeping? And living your life in this disarray where everything you see is gray.
So I crawl beneath my skin as the walls keep closing in. Until my eyelids get so heavy that I cant keep them open. My black shades help to deny the truth in my bloodshot eyes. As I fall back on my bed of nails and gaze at the cool gray sky.
See you and I, were not the same. You’re beautiful and I am gray. Ya, I lay back and feel the avalanche coming, tied to the tracks but the train keeps running. Lord help me, somebody save me, I’m losing my mind, I’m about to go crazy. I’m not right from the things I’ve been seeing. Can you imagine being afraid of sleeping? And living your life in this disarray where everything you see is gray.
