Track Name: Ramblin' Man
Ramblin’ Man

i was born a ramblin’ man
i can do the best i can
trouble is gunna find me

i was born in a bottle in 83’
i crept on out got swept to sea
trouble is gunna find me

when push comes to shove
you are no match for me
when trot comes to run
no way you gunna race with me

i was born a gamblin’ man
lost all my possessions
trouble i’ve been in

i was born in a bottle in 93’
crept on out got swept to sea
trouble i’ve been in

when push comes to shove
you are no match for me
when trot comes to run
no way you gunna race with me

i was born a gamblin’ man
lost all my possessions
trouble is gunna find me
Track Name: RCST Urban Paradise Walking Through the Trees
RCST

tune in tune in to RCST
turn on the radio and listen to me
the leaders at large
the ones who are in charge
have lost the majority

tune in tune in to RCST
turn on the radio and listen to me
CNN is at it again
spreading lies through your homes on tv

close your eyes close your eyes
close your ears
dont believe what you hear
remember now there’s always someone to fear

listen close and please see through
the hypocritical melting pot they stew
we make the masses and we’re in the classes
oh those racist bastards

close your eyes close your eyes
close your ears
dont believe what you hear
remember now there’s always something to fear

Urban Paradise

i went walking through
the urban paradise
grass between my toes
oh girl it felt so nice
i slept under
the smog and the twilight
oh girl you know
it was my favorite night

you’re in and you’re out
of touch with you
you’re in and you’re out
of touch with you
i’ve been playing these games
only to lose
you’re in and you’re out
of touch with you

she entered the scene
while i was in a dream
the sun was beating down
things were not what they seemed
intensity
from those big hazel eyes
i felt the fool
revealing my disguise

you’re in and you’re out
of touch with you
you’re in and you’re out
of touch with you
i’ve been playing these games
only to lose
i’m in and i’m out
of touch with you

sittin here singing
this old song
hopin one day you’ll come along
sittin here singing
this old song
hopin one day you’ll come along

Walking Through The Trees

we’ll go walking through the trees tonight
on the forest floor there is no light
if you’re a lost soul, join the force don’t fright

abre los ojos
you are the logos
climb, climb, climb
till the lights inside
abre los ojos
you are the logos
fall, fall, fall,
join the lost souls

the pines they are a great sight
the dawns dew, brings delight
when will the lost souls learn to take flight

abre los ojos
you are the logos
climb, climb, climb
till the lights inside
abre los ojos
you are the logos
fall, fall, fall,
join the lost souls

oh as night turns to day
brother find your own way
road, the road is lonely and so dark
don’t you know
the end is where you start
the end is where you start
brother find your own way
find your own way
brother
Track Name: Travelogue
the urban man travels
walking through trees of infinite energy
strapped tight to a soul of conscious and unconscious thought
he journeys through the hallowed abandominiums of space and time
the wanderer is completely unaware of his mystical nature
blinded by temporal concerns, he stares up at the ceiling awaiting
the sleepful rebirth he so desperately hopes to avoid
this gentleman is confused
repeatedly falling short of his own faith held beliefs
nothing seems to sooth his suffering
he becomes enticed by delusional illusions
injecting heartache falling prey to the snare of infatuation
sex drugs and rock and roll
all leave the wandered ravaged with unfulfilled impetus
he redoubles his efforts to close the void
he gets lifted
he gets small
he goes down
he eats out
he plays out
he works the crowd
he gets so out of his mind, he tricks himself to believing
the world is a fucked up place
the wanderers mistrust of society reflects his own insecurity
insecure like a cat in a cradle
disturbed by his self loathing
unable to change
the wanderer finally admits that he is lost
i am no more an individual then you are
we have been socially constructed
little do we know, how little we know
Track Name: Live Ammunition
Live Ammunition

live ammunition gunna explode
keep your finger on the trigger
ready to reload

oh honey its just a matter of time before you
be my dime
be my sugar and my wine
be my dime
be my sugar and my wine

i went outside later than i typically do
you were standing in the moonlight
and you look so blue

oh honey its just a matter of time before you
be my dime
be my sugar and my wine
be my dime
be my sugar and my wine

chaos, calamity
enjoy the breeze
chaos, calamity
enjoy the breeze

live ammunition gunna explode
keep your finger on the trigger
ready to reload

oh honey its just a matter of time before you
be my dime
Track Name: Hittin' The Breeze
Hittin’ The Breeze

i’ve been sittin sittin sittin sat
all day long
not thinking about tomorrow
no im not thinking about that

i’ve been sailing sailing sailing sailed
all day long
i’ve been hittin the breeze
oh i’ve been hittin the breeze

i’ve been smoking smoking smoking stoned
all day long
oh i’ve been looking for you sugar
oh i’ve been looking for you

i’ve been waiting waiting waiting anticipating
all day long
all those things you said
all those things you said they were not true

breezy mind i find when we said our ship
inconsequential actions
they just don't fit
well i’ve been hittin the breeze baby
oh i’ve been hittin the breeze
Track Name: Somos Unido
Somos Unido

sivuplay
mademoiselle

Track Name: Jet Plane/Morning Delusion
Jet Plane

goin 105 just because of the potion
the acceleration wont stop here

oh what a feelin now
have no fear
have no fear

it give you the creepy crawly feelin
hangin out back just wheelin and dealin

oh what a feelin now
have no fear
have no fear

you wake up next day and you look in the mirror
realize now that your head aint so clear
aint so clear

goin once again and the pressure’s on
you count each second it wont be too long

oh what a feelin now
have no fear
have no fear

you wake up next day and you look in the mirror
realize now that your head aint so clear
aint so clear

Morning Delusion

you wake up and think of problems you consider micro
you think about love
and it’s continuing cycle
don’t let a thing
get in the way of knowing
your action concludes your delicate devotion

i know its not meant to be
if you could do one thing for me
agree
i know its not meant to be
if you could do one thing for me

i thought about her
i wish i knew
she loved me the fact to be true

recalled hopes tucked away inside
lead me home again to the struggle within my mind
recalled hopes falsely advertised
a spiritual poet a ruler of time

you’re always enticed
the day you’re born till you die
problematic notice
potential suicide
Track Name: Eden
Eden

in the shade of the summer sun
all my plans have come undone
just say the word and we’ll be friends

tug of war in my mind
there is no reason
to the time
can the means justify the end?

stuck up in some brooklyn shack
it’s far too late
to pay you back
where do we go from here?

waiting on the 4 and 5
gunna transfer at the hive
way out to queens all the way out there

do you remember?
when we were 8 years old
riding our bikes and kickin stones
oh what fun
in the sun
laughing our days away
one by one

do you remember?
goin up north?
by the fire
singing songs
oh what fun
to hear the old men play
singing songs from our younger days

seashell eyes
ocean child
where did you go julia?
long winded breast
come and inspect
dont tell me what happens next
