"Mantra" written and performed by Rob Lamothe (Warner Chappell Music International/ASCAP)nrecorded live at Java Joe's, San Diego, California, USA 01/21/01

lyrics

corner of hess and king,
i'm thinking 'bout 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 i sang a sober note.
i need a cup of coffee, i need another beer,
i need this super-model to get me out of here.
hey yeah...

4:30 in the morning,
i'm drunk and i'm driving 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...

bruise under the skin,
something gives again...
by the murderous light of morning,
my hands look like my fathers'.
i need my medication,
i need another beer,
i need this voodoo bullshit
to get me out of here.
hey yeah,
hey yeah,
hey yeah...

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!
