about

"the words to mantra are "scenes" from my early days in hamilton, ontario. nothin' clever, just the facts. this version is on i am here now and features the voodoo brothers... and me on acoustic and electric guitar."

lyrics

corner of hess and king
thinking about getting my face pierced again
i'm wearing a two dollar coat
i know it's been three thousand
four hundred twenty seven days
since a sang a sober note
i need another hole in my head
i need another beer
i need this supermodel to get me out of here
hey yeah hey yeah hey yeah
four thirty the mornin'
i'm drunk and i'm drivin' home
i got every green light from queen street to
wellington
i need a cup of coffee
i need another beer
i need this tattooed devil to get me out of here
hey yeah hey yeah hey yeah
bruise under the skin
something gives
again
murderous light of morning
my hands look like my father's
my hands look like my father's
hey yeah hey yeah hey yeah
i need my medication
i need another beer
i need this voodoo bullshit to get me out of here

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!
