RUNNING TIME - 25:25

7/1/12

I guess you could say I've been feeling nostalgic lately. Reminiscent of the days when I used tape players as capture devices for my musical escapades. So today I borrowed my sister Chela's 4-track cassette recorder and set up in my favorite corner and hit my favorite button. I was immediately taken back to those moments when I would get lost for hours in my headphones, manipulating sounds and crafting my own aural magic. 16 years later I'm still at it and loving every moment of my craft and the creative process. I intend to deliver you this album a few pieces at a time, basically as they are finished.

7/7
THE DOG DAYS ARE OVER! I finished the album today. New songs up including a song about Mal Evans.

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: Nothing as it Seems
It's all of me or none of me
And everything between
Anxiety, anxiety
There's nothing as it seems

I hit the ground, never make a sound
It's hard to explain, you're push and pulling
By the light of the moon, it's you

I'm on again, off again
I struggle with it too
A song bird sings his song they say
In search of something new

Then hits the ground
Never makes a sound
It's hard to explain, you're push and pulling
By the light of the moon it's you, it's you

By the light of the moon
Track Name: It's Only Loneliness
I've got a lot of things to say
Better left unsaid
I'm doubled over seeing red
Can't control my brain
I get this feeling I've mislead
Didn't mean you any harm
I've taken everything you've said
Put them in my heart

I've played the part
I've made the start, I'll finish it
I'm thinking of you
Wonder where on earth you've been

I've got a lot of songs to sing
better left unsung
I've got a million things to do
Better left undone
I get this feeling I can't tell
Girl I wish you well

I've taken everything you've said
Put them in my heart

I've made the start
I've played the part, I'll finish it
I'm thinking of you
Wonder where on earth you've been

Don't wanna talk about it
Don't wanna scream or shout it
It's only loneliness I'm feeling

I've got a lot of things to say
Better left unsaid
I'm doubled over seeing red
Can't control my brain
I get this feeling I've mislead
Just my point of view
I've taken everything you've said
Put them in my heart
Track Name: Photograph
Come on get settled in
But before we can begin
You got to clear your mind of photographs
The mess we're living in

You say a fall is what you need
To understand the true meaning
Got an ashtray full of cigarettes
A Crucifix around your neck

Isn't it strange the things we welcome in?
You're caught in it's web
But you're the one who's spinning it

I need a visit from my friend
To remind me who I am
Got a tattoo of a phonograph
Reminds him of his kin

He says a fall is what he needs
To understand the true meaning
Got an ashtray full of cigarettes
An empty bottle on his chest

Isn't it strange the things we welcome in
You're tied to the track
But you're the freight train coming in

And my home is where I long to be
Heaven knows how much you mean to me

Come on get settled in
But before we can begin
You got to clear your mind of photographs
The mess we're living in
Track Name: All Is Dual
Careful what you wish
It's hard to live by another's word
All day wondering what could of been
Are you listening

You get what you need
But now what you want
Are you free? Are you me?
Is this the way it should be?

All through the afternoon
You aim to prove, none as right as you
Casting demons out
For he is lost and we are found

You get lots of things
There not who you are
All is dual
All is you
When you hurt I feel it to
Track Name: Song for Mal
He was no one born nowhere
Black glasses and short blonde hair
He was six foot six, had a mile long stare
Oh Mal you're a hell of a pal

Working down at the Cavern Club
He was nice but he had to get rough
He was just trying to do the best that he could
Oh Mal you're 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 you're a hell of a pal

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

He was shot in front of his house
Gunned down by the policeman's rounds
He was just trying to do the best that he could
Oh Mal you're a hell of a pal
Oh Mal they can't hurt you now
Track Name: Ocean Child
Over the hills, through the woods, to the ocean
Through the planes, through the trees, to the sea

If all is lost and meaningless
What have we begun to be?
All we need is love, love, om, om

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, and love, love, aum, aum

Love, love, love, love
Track Name: The Dog Days
The dog days have come dear
My heart has come undone
So I just sit here waiting
Baking in the morning sun

My mama died and left me
My daddy's on the run
I how I long to see them
When these dog days are done

The cities all are burning
The wells have all run dry
But I just lay here dreaming
Lazing under the morning sky

The dog days have come dear
My heart has come undone
So I just sit here waiting
Baking in the morning sun

My friends all died and left me
They left me with no one
Oh how I long to see them
When these dog days are done

But God has struck the hour
Come to judge everyone
But I stand there laughing
Taking in the morning sun

The dog days are over
But still I have no one
The dog days are over
I'm awake in the morning sun

The dog days are over
But still I have no one
The dog days are over
I'm awake in the morning sun

The dog days are over
But still I have no one
The dog days are over
Death it comes to everyone
I'm awake in the morning sun
