about

I was at a village football tournament just outside Santa Cruz, Bolivia, I befriended some locals and ended up drinking Ayahuasca tea from a plastic 7up bottle, I wasn’t told exactly what I was drinking until later the next day. For the next several hours my new friends and I convinced ourselves that we were watching football in hell. As the afternoon wore on I struggled to get back to my hostel in a seemingly apocalyptic thunderstorm. I remember standing on a balcony looking out over the low-rise skyline of Santa Cruz with no idea what had just happened. I watched the blackest storm clouds I had ever seen, watched as they broke up and give way to shafts of perfect golden light.


Who knows what she was thinking when she came out of the blue into our lives
She was crawling up the walls sending shivers running all along my spine
And as the sun set heavy over roof tops spreading out for miles
There was just a final word to be heard before she passed out on the cold tiles
But there was something in the water that had us losing our minds
God knows what we were drinking while the world I knew was fading out of sight
And there was something in her eyes that had me losing my mind
God knows what we were thinking while I prayed I made it out the other side
We crawled down to the bar and to some cut price bottles over lime
As the time lapsed love turned to lust but everything was all right
As the rain fell steady over car doors slamming on my mind
There was just a final act to be played before we gave in to the night time

Who knows what she was thinking when she came out of the blue into our lives

Track Name: IT WAS REAL
I spent days chasing nights
Chasing girls, losing phones
And starting fights in a hotel lobby in some far off land
I could not believe my eyes when I woke by her side
Although I knew it wouldn’t last forever
But, it was real
I’ll take boats
And I’ll take trains
Until I find that place again, where I tried to live like Françoise Sagan
It didn’t last that long
She spends days chasing nights
Chasing boys, wasting time
And I guess I’ll never know if I could change you lover
I’ll never know
And I guess I’ll never know
I spent days chasing nights
Chasing girls, losing phones
And starting fights in a hotel lobby in some far off land
