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: The Song That Made Paris Cry
Time it seems to fade away
Like the songs my father used to play
Like the words my mother used to say
"Son don't ever grow to be this way."

And I know the seasons change and help me grow
And I just don't feel so young anymore
And my sister is far off on some dusty road
She's the only one I think could understand

Father forgive me for what I've done
I'm your son, I know I haven't been much of one
And mama I never meant to make you cry
Sometimes we do things and don't know why

And I know the drinkin' doesn't help me
Sometimes it's just my way of getting by
Drunk again, outside I laugh, inside I cry
And just can't go on living this way

Time it seems to slip away
Like the games as children we used to play
Like the words our mothers used to say
"Learn to love, then just give it all away."

And we're told, the seasons change to help us grow
But I just don't feel so young anymore
And my sister is far off on some dusty road
She's the only one I think could understand

The sun will rise and set again
And I know I'll always have a friend
Just as long as I keep playing silly songs
Somehow I know that I will get along
Track Name: Pieces of Memories
I see you on the couch
Your looking strung out
Consumed in thoughts
Maybe you'll find peace
Through pieces of memories

Come, you're mine
Come outside

I see you on the chair
You tug at your hair
You're pulling it out
Maybe you'll find peace
Maybe you'll find me

Calm your mind
Come outside
Track Name: City Lights
I've been ridding 16 hours
On a train headed nowhere
Will someone please get me off of this car
I need some air
Or at least a cigarette, don't hold your breath

I left my heart in Colorado
I've tried so hard to get back there
It seems as though the further I go it don't compare

And I'm wasting time
Down under the city lights
And all the world is moving
Much too fast now to catch up
Will someone get me off of this thing called love

The radio's playing our song
It makes me wish that I was back home in your arms
Will someone please tell me that it's okay to dream

And I'm wasting time
Underneath the city lights
And all the world is moving
Far too fast now to catch up
Will someone get me off of this thing called love
Track Name: Room of Broken Dreams (Empty Spaces)
You say you have no friends
Just failed attempts at love
Oh what will you do now?

You're caught between the sheets
And won't get out of bed
She whispers through your head
Now you're broken again

Call everyone you know
And tell them you miss home
Can't stand to be alone in the quiet
And everything's so quiet

And you scream but no one seems to hear
Or no one even cares
You're wishing you were there
You're a million miles away from her smile
Just tell me everything is going to be okay

Let's just try to fill the empty spaces
In the room of broken dreams
You'll see, you'll see
When all is lost and broken
You'll surely be set free
