Lyrics

Damned Up

Written By: Jessie Mujica

How can I contain any longer
Should I try explaining in song
Of this ocean that is damned up in me
It’s through this pen that I have chosen to speak

Because I lose touch with my soul
When your touch is upon me
And every sense that I’ve known
Is at attention whenever you’re near
My every muscle it shivers with tension
From the comfort that lies within
Tell me is this love that I’m in
Tell me where are we my friend

My soul it gets lost in you
And on occasion
My soul it escapes me
And this body shall never arrive
And my emotions they dance in a frenzy
My emotions they dance in a frenzy

Because I lose touch with my soul
When your touch is upon me
And every sense that I’ve known
Is at attention whenever you’re near
My every muscle it shivers with tension
From the comfort that lies within
Tell me is this love that I’m in
Tell me where are we my friend?

Tell me tell me tell me tell me
Where are we my friend?

Naked Feet

Written By: Jessie Mujica

If I could
I would fly across the stars
And if I would
It wouldn’t take me very far
cuz here I stand
In this God mistaken land
I Shed a tear
As I see a dying land

If I would
Know all that there is to know
Well I’d be dead
As there’d be no more room to grow
I understand
That every day is a passing day
And I comprehend
That as time escapes
These cold hard hands they shake
And they shiver night and day
I have to say
That in time there’ll come a day

When my naked feet stretch through the carpet
And I run through the streets as I run to the market
And I run into things as they stop right ahead of me
I run to be free and I run to get rid of me
I run from the preacher, I run to the Alter
I run to my future, I run cuz I ought to
And I run with the sinners because I am able
And I run with the saints as I run to the table
I run to the table

I always knew
That one time there’d come a day
When my feet would be sore
And my skies would be gray
I never knew
That it could be so here and now
What to do
Guess I will find out in and hour
Or two or more…

I never thought I’d see a day like this
my skies could be so gray like this

what time it is

Written By: Jessie Mujica

I wrap my arms around my hair
As if there’s something going on up there
Sometimes I am swallowed by the chair
The chair that chews me up

And as I flip the coin of life again
I often wonder will we still be friends
Oh how saddening how this time it has to end
It is not my intention to offend

I want to know what time it is
And about how much longer there is left to give
And about how much longer can this earth forgive
Before it all dries up

It’s not that I’m not an activist
I just like to sit here sometimes with my feet at rest
And now restless I am where I stand today
And I will stretch out my hand at some promises made
And I will stretch out my hand at some promises I’ve made

Just like a bird, I will rise in flight
And I will flutter my wings and I will
Sing with might
It’s all in my dreams in the day or the night
And the odd thing to me is how it all seems so right

I want to know what time it is
And about how much longer there is left to give
And about how much longer can this earth forgive
Before it all dries up

It rattles my cage and it somehow frightens me
I know how it seems but I’m not really weak
I am just singing of things that are inside of me
this is all that I know so it’s all that I’ll bring
It’s all that I know so it’s all that I bring

small talk

Written By: Jessie Mujica

So tell me what do you think?
What do you think of this weather?
I say you should walk right with me
I say we walk hand in hand together
Or alone all alone
All alone or alone

Will you, will you walk right with me?
Will you walk with my hand in this weather?
Oh tell me what would you think if
Just what would you think if you could?

Cause I can’t handle all this gruesome
News that I hear on the radio
And if I turn the dial once again
And I hear there’s a war on in stereo
I could die
We’re all gonna die

But I’d rather just play my guitar
And then walk real far until no one can hear me
As my eyes see the bars on this world
Or are these bars actually right here within me?
Will you walk? Will you talk?
Can we commune in the midst of this weather?
It matters not…it matters not

For indifferent I stand and indifferent I rise
For I can walk I can talk
Even with no one beside me
I can stand on the mountaintop
Yet no one will hear my voice
I’ll say what I’ve got to say yet
No one can rejoice with me
How come no one can rejoice

peoples lives

Written By: Jessie Mujica

I’ve been reading about people’s lives
And about how they died
And what they had to write
Between that last and first breathe
I must confess, I must confess
This much

There’s so much more in store
But you must pay before
With attention
It’s been mentioned before
But before you take the floor
You need comprehension

Now I’m closer to this city
Many strangers’ eyes I pity
Many strangers pity me
Because I’m free
Free to be so witty
Or to feel a little giddy
So now who have you to pity?
Now let me be

And I chop up at words that I’ve heard
And then I reunite them to make life understood
And what if there were no words at all
I wouldn’t need this ink
That drips and it falls like the rain
Insane are some so they say
But now look at the judges who’s judging today
Hey

Well I guess that judge is me
Since I am feeling so free
Enough to mention them
Who ever “they” are
How come I couldn’t see?
How could I let hypocrisy take my advantage?
And take it this far…

sun spots

Written By: Jessie Mujica

I’ve got sunspots that blind me
Why don’t you come squat beside me?
And allow me to share
It seems, at times I shrug my shoulders
As if I didn’t care
But somewhere deep down inside
There’s a fire yearning to blare

If at all my words they captivate you
Just know that I’m not out to take you
Or any prisoners for me
In all honesty, I’d like to thank you
For giving to me
That little piece of your time
For me to share what I see
To share what I see

The clouds outside
How they cry
How they cry
How they testify
Of the coming tides
And I don’t understand why
Have we got to fight for our freedom?
Have we got to die?
Have we got to cry?

Somebody please take this blood
Turn this blood into wine
I’m sick of failing at love
I’m sick of wasting my time
And if you’re there up above
Tell me what’s my next line?
Please don’t let push come to shove
Don’t leave me waiting behind
Don’t leave me waiting behind

I’ve got sunspots …
