CELEBRATING 7 YEARS

This month marks the 7 year anniversary of my Lack of Sleep album. Available now on bandcamp for just $5. Consisting of 8 songs made up and recorded on the spot, and a bonus cover of my favorate Daniel Johnston song.

(original liner notes) The "lack of sleep sessions" were recorded between June seventeenth and thirteenth 2006, in the middle of the night, with little or no sleep. Most of the songs were written on the spot and later over-dubbed with more instruments including; the tambourine, hand-claps, keyboards and backing vocals. Thanks to any and everybody who made this recording possible, more specifically; the empty basement with the ghost of my dog, the front lawn and the morning birds, the watering of the invisible garden gnome, and all the rest of you who support what I do. I love you all.

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: Lack of Sleep
Lack of sleep in a colored 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
The spinning it wont 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
Track Name: Wanting Peace
I'll wait, I can't slide
I will shake down the tide
Wanting peace, wanting peace and meaning
I want it all to stop
Track Name: Still Your Mind
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 I still be here and breathing?
When I'm so dumb
When I've been numbed
Down to the point of no return
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: In The Middle of the Night
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
I hear your voice darlin', darlin'

In the middle of my sleep I go swimming in my dreams
In the middle of the night I here your voice
I hear your voice darlin' darlin'
Track Name: No Robert Johnson For Me
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 of 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 fear I've got the blues

Tonight there will be no Robert Johnson for me
Track Name: Self Depricated
On my own once again
Falling further again
Though I cannot complain
Wandering though memories of
little things we did love
When I was with you

Self destructive is what I've been
Self inflicting pain
And unemployment it's all the same
I'm just standing in the rain
I'm just standing in the rain

All alone once again
On my own once again
And no I can't explain
Wandering though memories of
all the things we did love
When I was with you

Self destructive is what I've been
Self deprecated and it's all a sin
I'm on my own, my own again
I'm just standing in the rain
I'm just standing in the rain

Self destructive is what I've been
Self inflicted pain
Unemployment it's all the same
I'm just standing in the rain
I'm just standing in the rain
Track Name: Wake Up (My Darling Love)
As I was wandering through a lonesome highway
As I was wandering through some lonesome highway
As I was wandering through some lonesome highway
with you, with you

We pulled over we began to scream
We pulled over and you began to scream
We pulled over and you began to scream at me

Oh wake up my darling love
Oh wake up my darling love
Please wake up my darling love
Please wake up

We pulled up to a lonesome hotel
We pulled up to a lonesome hotel
We pulled up to a lonesome hotel
With no vacancy
There was no vacancy

And I dragged you out I laid you down
Well I drug you out and I laid you down
And I dragged you out and I laid you down
Now you're lying on the floor
You're lying on the floor

Oh wake up my darling love
Oh wake up my darling one
Oh wake up my darling low
Please wake up
Track Name: Train Station Blues
I'm waiting at the station
All my bags are packed
I'm walking on that freight train
I'm never coming back

And the moon is shining on my face
Lord I've got to leave this place

On and on until I am sleeping
On and on until the sun arrives
On and on until you are dreaming
On and on and on

Hush my little darling
Don't say a word
Hush my little baby
You're my little bird

And if you should refuse to fly
I will sing you a lullaby
So hush my little darling don't you cry
Everything is going to be alright
