Track Name: Dormilón
Knock the alarm off the night stand
Keep your eyes shut and
Convince yourself there’s nothing to do
As soon as I get up
I’ll go downstairs and fill my cup
In an hour or two
Track Name: Aztlán
It’s true I miss the ocean
But not the people on the coast
And I’d be lying to myself If I didn’t say
You were the one I love the most

But no one seems aware
You were ours before you were theirs
And no one seems to care
We’ve always been here

I want to feel the ground beneath my feet
La tierra quiere ser parte de mi
Track Name: King Pocho
You told me I could pass for you
If I’m not looking how I should
How am I supposed to look?

You’re holding on to something gone
But time will age and faces change

They think that I’m not talking right
If I sound unlike how I seem
How am I supposed to speak?
Track Name: Curandero
Maybe I knew from the start
My heart was never in it
Didn’t know what I couldn’t do
I just wanted to be great like you

Te juro que traté
Pero no lo pudé hacer
Te sigo amando
Ya puedes dejar de fingir

And it didn’t last long
Felt wrong pretending
San Francisco all over again
I’m not where anybody thinks I am
Track Name: The Most
I’m already dreading tomorrow
Can’t accept my fate
Fed up before I wake up
Got to do it again today

Dreamt of seeing stars
But I can’t handle the height
On the ground’s more my scene
Feeling more like dirt than light

But when you come home and hold me close
I don’t even know why it mattered at all
When you come home I like it the most
And I don’t even know why it mattered at all

Out on the streets, feel like a freak
And they’re wondering why you’re hanging around
Nothing worth saying out loud
Eyes glued to the ground
Track Name: Invincible Summer
Drifting through the changes
Tried to put to words but remains nameless
Never caring what comes
Never minding what does

I began to lose sight of myself in the fall
A time when I can’t recall everything going on with me
But I knew I could keep you cool in the winter
Even though last spring I couldn’t breathe
Fell down hard but I’m trying to get back up
I’m going to shake the dust off
I’ve been trying to find myself here
Trapped beneath these wild fears
Been a long time coming
But I think the season’s finally here
