about

Bombay Beach Portland, Oregon

This story follows characters through Joshua Tree, Slab City, Salton Sea as they run from the disintegrating American dream to find solace - or meaning - in the grittier elements of their world. We call it the New American Rage; a reaction to over-earnest commercial development, squeezing of the middle class, and silencing of creativity. ... more

Track Name: Slab City
That's where I'm at
Crawled through the crack
No turning back
Cool running flat
Slab city, I'm back
Slab city, I'm

Cut kingdom trap
Steam sucking smack
Man's got the knack
Turned up the slap
Slab city, I'm back
Slab city, I'm
Slab city, I'm back

Slab city keep me coming
East Jesus ain't got shit on me

Slab city, I'm back
Track Name: Murder USA
Pretty neon girl
Pretty neon boy
Pretty neon girl
Pretty neon boy
Gonna give em the gun
Gonna give em a gun

Pretty neon blood
Murder USA
Pretty neon blood
Murder usa
Shooby Doo Wop Shooby Doo Wop
Shooby Doo Wop Shooby Doo Wop Bop

Pretty neon blood
Pretty neon blood

Murder USA

I need to do my thing
to do my thing
before I lose control
Track Name: Lip Oil
Spike my ambition with ginseng and juice
Black be the night, there's a stitch on the loose
Crack in her voice as she whispers I think
You should come on downtown

What did she say?
What did she say?
Think I'm accused
Think she's to blame
Track Name: Wood Shampoo
How'd you know?
Taste the floor
Turned the secret out
Earned a little shut your mouth

To the breach
Cut your teeth
White knuckle plea post haste
Who the fuck will be disgraced?

Went toe to toe with God
But everybody loves an underdog
Track Name: Mickey Rata
Disdain for the fifteenth second-comer
I can't stand the sixteenth of the summer
Why plan for the taste of any other?
Amen, gonna shout it to you

Make me an offer
Sons and your daughters
Flesh on the altar

Make me an offer
Sons and your daughters
Sheep for the slaughter

Why plan for the taste of any other?
Amen, gonna shout it to ya
Hallelujah

Make me an offer
Sons and your daughters
Flesh on the altar

Make me an offer
Sons and your daughters
Sheep for the slaughter
Track Name: BreakneckBreakbottle
Kicked the cousin, and I'm 90 days clean
But you can't shake the hustle at all
Slump the streets, some electric romance
Cause my trade take the tussle and all

Got no time for a program
Cause my slip got a little too loose
20 sacks, 20 God damn
20 tricks and I got to move
Track Name: Thee Mote
She came out
West
Babylon
Back
Old New York
Talked like trash
Venetian Shores
Stopped to cop
For a quarter more
Hate to tell her
Fresh new hell here

Hasty, hasty she
Said severely

Heavy, heavy she
Called me clearly

She spat out
Pejorative
Name
Old Kizmet
Split my chest
"Who you with?"
Wash her lips
For forever more
Wash her lips
For forever more

Hasty, hasty she
Said severely

Nasty, nasty she
Named me nearly

Heavy, heavy she
Called me clearly

Hasty, hasty she
Said severely
Track Name: Desert Chase
Half measures have availed us none
Hooked up another hard time, son
High power whosoever low
Neither need nor aversion
No no no no

Things I cannot change
Things I can't contain
Things I can't retain
Things I want explained
Track Name: Future Fever
Hey
Got a peak premonition
Getting sick off the New Oblivion
Flash a heat hallucination
Starting down the back of an era

Ad hominum, a minimum
Got debts a clean man can't pay
Neon neo's a new one
Shaking down a barrel and losing

It's the future fever

Diaphoresis
Dripping dirty deeds
Hemophilia
Bleeding while I dream

It's the future fever
Track Name: I&I
Vicious,
Suspicious much
Inches don't lie
But it's okay
One more time
One more time
It's not the sickness
Inches don't lie
Itches don't listen

Rat tat tat
Rat racket run the junket
Inches don't lie
But it's alright
I'd cozy up
To the edge
Can you keep a secret?
Inches don't lie
Itches don't listen

God damn
Santa Monica
You always got the best
Feel the prick
Sew the stitch
It's not the sickness
Inches don't lie
Itches don't listen
Track Name: New American Rage
It's the future fever
One lifetime's like another
And tomorrow's no more kind

We keep it dark
Keep it dark
But I've got the sneaking suspicion you want to play with ambition

The good news that it ain't any news
The bad news that it just ain't getting better
But I've got an answer

It's the future fever
One lifetime's like another
And tomorrow's no more kind
Track Name: Sonny
The rue snap
The boot strap
The future
The comeback
The threshold
The attack
Come on, Dick Hell
Lick another lap

The key was
The contact
The cue words
That old stack
You promised
A New Jack

Everybody knows that today was the master plan.
Track Name: Deep City Chase
Let me baptize
She feed the flood
Slit the street top won't be caught
Still young and in my blood

Take no trust from any other
Kick she, up-jumped like a lover
Set the tone two times before
Oh my Lord
Think I'll have another

An eye for awful
Tooth for trouble
Must believe
I need you like you need me
I need you like you need me
