Truckee Brothers San Diego, California

Born by accident in a studio in 2004. Died bloody in 2009. Rose from the dead live onstage on Jan 10, 2014. Sounds like a Dionysian myth to me.

Track Name: Oohlong Intro
Water rushes in...
Track Name: Gritty Pretty
Gritty Pretty
- - - -

Flowers can't keep a secret
I can't keep my mouth shut
Steal a wink and a cardboard election
God help the woman in the frozen food section

Gritty pretty eloquence

Kiss me little beastie
Can't you feel my bee sting?
"Make war, not love", they declare
Ain't no hippy, but there's got to be more than
Rockets red glare

(Fuck off!)*

Gritty pretty eloquence
Track Name: Kiss My Komodo
Kiss My Komodo
- - - -

Groupies and sycophants!

Hit the streets where the meats
are looking you in the eye
with a knife in their palm
or some kind of soul sucka
trying to quote you a line
or sing you a psalm

Back away now! Back away Mutha!
I've got a lover to get back to other
None of your business kinds of things
The keys to your hell are locked from the inside
But the drummer don't mind!

Well you can kiss my Komodo!
You can kiss my Komodo on the underside!
Track Name: Formula O
Formula O
- - - -

A kick in the head sings me a lullaby
Every choice that I make is just another "Louie-Lou-I"
Won't be able to love a heart that beats on my face
Smash in, cash out

My place is placeless
My trace is traceless
Never get me down, get back!

Buzzing with flies
Advice given rancor with anchors
I play a "Merry Widow Waltz" with my ship going down in the desert

My place is placeless
My trace is traceless
Never get me down, get back!
Track Name: Planning For The 21st Century
Planning For The 21st Century
- - - -

Who needs yesterday?
Don't know tomorrow
Headed somewhere else, fast

I sprayed weed killer on my hometown roots
Stained my skin, bleached my teeth
Take my prescription mood

You've got to be strong and broken
At the start of the 21st
...Century

It's better to have known than to have known better

You've got to be strong and broken
At the start of the 21st
...Century

Go back to now
Tell me if you can
Track Name: Double Happiness

Can you run?
It can't be undone

Double life
"You don't slow down", she says
One more won't matter to an Incan Geisha
Sucks it up, sucks it up, sucks up the night
Wreaking havoc with a fragile fist

Can you run?
It can't be undone

Midnight strikes
My F/stop's wrong
I'm biting off Mother Creedence
Karma, Karmic Salvation
Get on your tryke, get on your tryke
It's not gonna happen with a good-night kiss

Can you run?
It can't be undone
Track Name: Bon Voyuerage
Bon Vouyerage

I can see her
Holding back your eyes
I can see her
Guessing my surprise
I can see her
Waiving me goodbye

I can take you
Where I fear I'm led
Let me take you
Where angels fear to tread
I can take you
But I let it all go by

Night so cold
Track Name: Purple Waves Of Gain
Purple Waves Of Gain
- - - -

So heavy

How does it feel comeback queen?
Lovers say "Bombs Away!"
You've been figured out
How?!

So heavy

How does it feel comeback queen?
Too many men up your dress
Don't tell me you're not peeking
No?!

So heavy

You bite my tongue with your wooden teeth
And you won't go down on a poor man

So heavy
Track Name: Snap Tight
Snap Tight
- - - -

Power becomes vampire
Sets a chain reaction
Republic turns to empire
But we cannot afford the blood

Ooh Ooh Ooh
Snap tight

People kill martyrs
Martyrs don't kill people
Keep us scared, keep us small
Who's gonna rip the chord?

Ooh Ooh Ooh
Snap tight

Swing low
Swing low sweet

Ooh Ooh Ooh
Snap tight
Track Name: I Am Nature
I AM Nature
- - - -

I've been in trouble
In the hole of my mind
Too often lovers
Take too much of mine

I am Nature
I'm a Mutha
But I ain't Mother Nature

Home isn't always where you're from
Sweet Caroline
All I've been given cost too much
To make it mine

I am Nature
I'm a Mutha
But I ain't Mother Nature
Track Name: Spectre
Spectre
- - - -

"The night of the hunter"
A "rat-tat-tat-tat"
Don't piss on my fire
Don't rain down my back
Thought it was golden
Blew up in my face
Hitting the bottom is good sometimes

A phallus of callus
Compassionate fiends
A spectre withholding my drop in the sea
Oh come strangling high places
Oh come unreachable deep
Adding insult to injury

On a highway through the sea
To laying in the Summer grass
Can't keep the light on
There's nothing to shine on
I can still see the other side

How am I going to get it
With a vice that won't quit?
Nothing you would do, if you really think about it
Lecherous ladies, sack old whores
Love looms eternal like a bad check you can't cash

On a highway through the sea
To laying in the Summer grass
Can't keep the light on
There's nothing to shine on
I can still see the other side

Sunday's quiet fear is Monday will be here
Track Name: Mega Watt
Mega Watt

Where have all the Milkmen gone?
Wish I could be given another Minute Man
Kick out the Jams and the Spanish Bombs
Throw me an Econoline would ya?

I wanna get on the road
I gotta get on the road
If you're not playin' you're payin'

Dashboard lights me
My wheel sets me straight
Tires let me roll like a Mutha!

Get on the road
Back on the road, we're only eight years old
How many records we sold?
We can't afford to go home
Let just get back on the road
Track Name: Royale Finale
Royale Finale

Lose your head Turn away
Break the bed Then look back
Liberate Turn away
El Camino

Sofia gold You can
Secrets flow no longer see
Toward Durango

At first light You dream
You arrive You dream
In El Dorado
