about

Inaiah Lujan Pueblo, Colorado

"Whether laying down some succulent psychotropic hip-hop as DJ Flow Nase, feeding off of severely distorted barre chords with the riff-heavy punk band A Poor Substitute, or lending distinctive vocal abilities to the peculiar and hypnotic "funeral pop" band The Mexican, Pueblo's Inaiah Lujan is plainly a restless soul."

-Adam Leech, The Independent

Track Name: I'm Alive (Collectible Records Compilation Version)
Can feel you rising in my chest
Oh, why is it so?
And though this feeling it will pass
I can't hide from what's inside of me

And though it feels like dying
I'm alive... Alive

My hands are shaking soaking wet
I think I'll lie down in my bed
Or maybe smoke a cigarette
To remind me it's all inside my head

And don't it feel like dying?
I'll get by... Get by

Anxiety haunts me in my dreams
But keeps me company
A feeling I can keep
I...

Can feel you rising in my chest
Track Name: Lost Without Your Love (Unreleased)
I can't teach your eyes to see me
I can't teach your ears to hear me
I can't teach your arms to hold me
I never meant to make you leave me

So darlin' can you tell me
Can you tell me you'll believe me
When I tell you that I need you
When I tell you that I love you

Lord I'm lost without your love
I'm lost, I'm lost
Lord I'm lost without your love
Track Name: Stepping Out (Ragged Print Compilation Version)
I feel so far away
Watching those birds fly
I've got that birds eye point of view
And it looks so lonely down there
I think I'll stay up here
Nighttime is drawing near
So off to bed you go

And I forgive the world who just can't see
That when it goes to sleep I can be free, so...
Don't bother me, I'm in my tree
Oh, don't you worry
I'm in no hurry now, I'm just stepping out
Track Name: Steal Your Mind (2016)
Can I still be here and feeling
When I'm so numb, when I've been dumbed...
Down to the point of no return

Can I be free, here and feeling
When I'm so numb, when I've been dumbed...
Down to the point of no return

And all the days go passing by
And all the children start to cry
And all the eyes begin to blind
And all the lies go passing by to...
Steal your mind

Can I still be, here and learning
When I'm so numb, when I've been dumbed...
Down to the point of no return
Down to the point of no return

Can be free, here and breathing
When I'm so dumb, when I've been numbed...
Down to the point of no return

And all the days go passing by
And all the children start to cry
And all the eyes begin to blind
And all the lies go passing by to...
Steal your mind
Track Name: Fever Dream (Strange Dreams Version)
In a dream I thought I saw you
On a hill down by the sea
You were calling me
From a garden so full of green

I've grown quite fond of dreaming
I'm even learning to fly
Don't wake me up
I'm only sleeping

In a dream I saw the end
We were sitting by a popcorn stand
In Los Angeles
Holding hands
A wave washed over us

I've grown quite fond of dreaming
I'm even learning how to die
Oh, don't wake me up
I'm only sleeping
Please don't wake me up
I'm only dreaming

I've grown quite fond of dreaming
I'm even learning how to cry
Please don't wake me up
I'm only sleeping
Please don't wake me up
I'm only dreaming
Track Name: Day is Done (Strange Dreams Version)
I can't shake this feeling, since you've gone
I often wonder what went wrong
Can't be myself when you're not here
Can't be alone when no one's there

In the back of my mind, thought you were just fine
But I could not tell, oh, you hide it so well

The night has come
The day is done
But I have no inspiration
To write a song
To sing along
I am spent
But the time's come to let it out
I don't have to scream or shout
Anymore to feel good about myself
Though I'd like to

Where do we go from here this time
I'm drowning in my own fear
Tonight, I'll try to make it right
Track Name: Sky is Falling (Strange Dreams Version)
I went from no sleep
To caught between sheets
Sleeping the day away
When will it end
Lord only knows when
Answers don't always come so easily

It rings in my head
The things that you said
Is the sky falling down
Or am I just dreaming
Is it all over
Or am I just sleeping
Is it going down... Tonight?

Been raining for days
The sun won't come out
Just give me someplace, oooh
To lay my head down just for a while

It rings in my head
The things that you said
Is the sky falling down
Or am I just dreaming
Is it all over
Or am I just sleeping
Is it going down... Tonight?
Track Name: Song for Mal (Dog Days EP Version)
He was no one born nowhere
Black glasses and short blonde hair
He was six-foot-six had a mile long stare
Oh, Mal your a hell of a pal

Working down at the Cavern Club
He was nice but he had to get ruff
He was just trying to do the best that he could
Oh, Mal your a hell of a pal

On the hunt for figures and things
Plug it in, pick it up when it rings
Getting more and more of what he could not afford
Oh, Mal your a hell of a pal

Get some paper, get a pen
Jot it down, repeat it again
There were 7 virtues, 7 sins
Oh, Mal you'll get yours in the end
Oh, Mal you'll get yours in the end

He was shot in the front of his house
Gunned down by the police man's rounds
He was just trying to do the best that he could
Oh, Mal your a hell of a pal
Oh, Mal they can't hurt you now
Track Name: Ocean Child (Dog Days EP Version)
Over the hills through the woods to the ocean
Through the plains through the trees to the sea

If all is lost and meaningless
What have we begun to be
All ya need is love

Through the pines through our minds through our scars
From the depths of our hell to our hearts

Through the lost and meaningless
We shall be what we were born to be
Free in love

Love
Track Name: No Robert Johnson (Lack of Sleep Version)
Well I know that I told you It would be alright
But I forgot to write it down
And you know that I showed you what's inside
Now you're running for the door

Tonight... In your eyes
The sun does shine

Well I know that I showed you all my records
But I want them back from you
And you know you really stole them
I never gave them to you
Now I'm crying, I feel I've got the blues

Tonight... There will be
No Robert Johnson for me
Track Name: In The Middle of the Night (Lack of Sleep Version)
In the middle of my sleep
I go walking in my dreams
In the middle of the night
I see your face, darlin', darlin', darlin'

In the middle of my dreams
I go swimming in my sheets
In the middle of the night
I hear your voice, callin', darlin'

In the middle of my sleep
I go swimming in my dreams
In the middle of the night
I hear your voice, callin', darlin'
Track Name: Untitled (Strange Dreams Version)
Sitting in my square room and I'm thinking the unthinkable
Contemplating what I don't know, connecting all the dots though
I'm erasing all emotion, I believe it's all a motion
Or a vibration unheard of
Have I mentioned or invited you
To my vast imagination
Are you dealing with suffocation
Are you forgetting who you once were
Have you forgotten what you answered

Please allow me to explain
I'm just enamored with the rain
Didn't mean to cause you harm
But you seem to be alarmed
Have you confused our situation
Have you refused their medication
Is the world dreaming of you
Or are you dreaming of the world

I can't explain
What happens now
I'll get to you
Somehow

The second verse involves a hearse
An undertaker and a nurse
But don't concern yourself with details
They'll only drive you mad
And you'll begin to think in circles
Contemplating what you don't know and connecting all the dots though
Erasing all emotion
I believe it's all a motion
Or a vibration unheard of
Have I mentioned or invited you to my vast imagination

Please allow me to explain
I'm just enamored with the rain
Didn't mean to cause you harm
But you seem to be alarmed
Have you confused our situation
Have you refused their medication
Is the world dreaming of you
Or are you dreaming of the world

I can't explain
I don't know how
I'll get to you
What happens now
I can't explain
What happens now
I'll get to you
Somehow
Track Name: The Fool (Strange Dreams Version)
I look around but it's nothing new
Same old story a different tune
I'm living my life the best I'm able
Laying my cards on the table

I am just a fool
Searching for the world
Wont you come out tonight

It seems as though I've just begun
27 times around the sun
I've seen your empress and her kingdom
She won't stop until she's done

She is just a fool
Searching for the world
Wont you come out tonight

We were lovers in the rain
Rode a chariot to a new plane
The days grew long but we grew stronger
Until we die we're left to wander

And I am just a fool
Searching for the world
Wont you come out tonight

The stars are out the moon is shining
Tomorrow's sun is surely rising
The day of judgment has begun
Will we see that we're all one

I am just a fool
Searching for the world
Wont you come out tonight
Wont you come out tonight
Track Name: West Edge of Town (Unreleased)
Sitting, waiting, hoping for you
But I'm on my own now
On the west edge of town

Is it too late to come home
Is the love we had all gone
Is it too late to come home baby?

Put that needle to the groove
And we're on our way now
We've got nothing to lose no how

Is it too late to come home
Is the love we had all gone
Is it too late to come home baby?

Sitting, talking 'bout the way things were
And I'm crying my eyes out
I don't know when I'm going to let you down

Is it too late to come home
Is the love we had all gone
Is it too late to come home baby?
Track Name: Lack of Sleep / Wanting Peace (2016)
Lack of sleep in a cluttered room
And I wanted it to stop
Wandering through these wasted days

And I guess that I'll be back again
When all is through
And I will be here when it's done
Right next to you

Drunk again in a quiet room
And the spinning it won't stop
Get me off please get me off of this ride

And I guess that I'll be back again
When all is through
And I'll be here when it is all done
Right next to you

--

Oh wait - I can slide
I will shake down the tide
Wanting peace
Wanting peace and meaning
Track Name: Spinning The Wheel (Unreleased)
Everything's on cue
Has it's time and place
Nothing is left to chance or fate

Spinning the wheel
Of your own true will
Everyone's got a story to tell

Everyone's got a song to sing my dear
Whisper sweet changes in my ear
Below and above my one true love
Everyone's got a burden to bare

Am I a fool to believe this world is a dream
You say you don't believe in anything

Spinning the wheel
Of your own true will
Everyone's got a demon to kill

C'est bien, C'est bien
Ça me plaît, Ça me plaît,
C'est bien, C'est bien
Au revoir
Bonne nuit
