It's So Easy 04:30
she rolls her own cigarettes she will show me her tattoo i will teach her how to fly she and i are bullet-proof. keiko matsui plays me a song some kind of soundtrack and i roll along so willing to suffer, so willing to suffer i'm on a train, sun goin' down. it's so easy, i am inspired as a bloody stone, as a bleeding flower i am not scared, i'm temporary crush my heart... mother, mother, mother, may i rest my head here, can i pray now? i feel hope for my children, for my children and for myself.

when i call you baby you whisper my name. when i sing the sweet notes you give me everything and i curse my skin for coming in between us. every glorious mistake has led me here. so turned on by the things i fear and i curse my skin for coming in between us. ashes to ashes, all fall down tell me you love me without a sound. i'll sing the sweet notes and you let me in raven-haired beauty, you are my friend. well, i am not lost i am exactly where i am i'm not waiting for nothin'... not money, love or jesus. all i want is here in the atmosphere... between us. ashes to ashes, all fall down tell me you love me without a sound i'll sing the sweet notes and you let me in raven-haired beauty, you are my friend. i am not gone, i am exactly where you are... all i want is here in the atmosphere... between us... ashes to ashes, all fall down tell me you love me without a sound i'll sing the sweet notes and you let me in raven-haired beauty, you are my friend. you are my friend.

i used to wonder how could things turn out the way they do i used to believe my fate was decided by you. there are some things i am sure of and some things i will never know and even if it don't seem fair that's just the way it goes. i suppose... time will go by... i will think about you time will go by... do you remember the first time under the redlight... i do last time i saw you i told you i love you... and i do. i suppose... time will go by... i will think about you time will go by... i remember everything every bloody fucking thing... time will go by... i will think about you time will go by...

...a gypsy sings...of birds with broken wings... ...and painted wheels that never roll... ...who hears his sighs... who stole his paradise... ...who took the fire from his soul... ...and where are the roads to freedom... ...where is the life his father knew... ...where is the love... where is the joy... ...and tell me... where are the roads to freedom... ...now truth or lie, who hears that soldier cry... ...he was a hero, a hero of the war... ...but no one comes near... he sheds a lonely tear... ...he wonders what it was all for... ...and where are the roads to freedom... ...where is the life his father knew... ...where is the love... where is the joy... ...and tell me... where are the roads to freedom... SOLO (verse) ...and where are the roads to freedom... ...where is the life his father knew... ...where is the love... where is the joy... ...and tell me... where are the roads to freedom... SOLO (verse, repeats... fades out)

Blue Ray 02:38
well, ya' sang like an angel, ya' sang like hell i know you're out on a big soul ride and i wish you well... said a prayer for you last night, down on my knees and if you're standin at the gates o' heaven say a few words for me... you're momma knew you were trouble loved you just the same thought you could take on the big bad world scream like a rumblin' train...

Water 03:31
down from the hills down from the holler quarter past midnight, i'm in the muddy water. muddy water, wash me clean up from the ground out of the mind moonlight on the water shine, shine, shine. muddy water, wash me clean my pockets full of rose quartz i am lying on a river bed. muddy water... row, row, row, gently down the stream merrily, merrily, merrily life is but a dream.

Paranoid 03:28
Finished with my woman 'cause she couldn't help me with my mind People think I am insane because I'm frowning all the time All day long I think of things but nothing seems to satisfy Think I'll lose my mind if I don't find something to pacify Can you help me, occupy my brain? Oh yeah I need someone to show me the things in life that I can't find I can't see the things that make true happiness, I must be blind Make a joke and I will sigh and you will laugh and I will cry Happiness I cannot feel and love to me is so unreal And so as you hear these words telling you now of my state I tell you to enjoy life I wish I could but it's too late

Lies 02:05
i'm not sittin' on my front steps tonight behind me there's no hand-lettered sign no flyers, no religion, no trespassers everything is fine. i'm not wasting breath and words yours is not the deepest voice i've heard i am not a cartoon valentine everything is fine. hey i could make a living after all if i get myself a mirror-ball and a friend of a friend to run the smoke and lights everything's allright. i will not spend my every waking minute cursin' my life, if you're not in it everything is fine.

I ride the waves, to carry the news Two hundred days on the wide open blue With salt in my nose and damp in my shoe I ride the waves with a memory for you I ride the waves, to the edge of the world With a silver bound locket of a beautiful girl My heart it still pounds, my teeth they still grind On the deck of the may belle As she leaves you behind I ride the waves, as a boy of ten years And when I am buried they bury me here In my best linen topcoat, a cannonball tear I’ll ride the waves Then I’ll disappear I ride the waves, now she’s married away To a well-to-do doctor, with a carriage and maid Her letter still haunts me, her picture still fades Like a star in a sextant Her memory remains While I ride the waves…

Rob Lamothe Ontario

The Toronto Star says I am ‘a mercurial artist who slides effortlessly from rustic roots music to soulful country pop to full-blown rock balladry’. Works for me!
