Biography

Our backgrounds vary wildly between American hippie folk and jazz, alternative pop, Wagnerian opera, middle-eastern traditional/world beat, and disco (not really). Most of us came to New Mexico from someplace else and met up here. Most of us are old enough to be President.

Lyrics

Lost Nation Rd

Written By: Jude and Justin Toast

must've been a bad turn
back on I980
my mind was wandering
and the roads to washington
and hollywood look the same to me
i've watched the country fly by
lost nation road right out the window i saw the spirit of a buffalo
and her herd laid low
something's given me a rotten bad feeling i almost hate to see the dawn haunted eyes in my headlights gleaming i got no brakes i got to roll on
on lost nation road you find no blinking sign of hope on
lost nation road
the company and the cavalry
and the billboard be all that you can be they scream we'll fill your head with dreams you can kill for
(all that you can) go to college learn that lecture on the bayonette and the times you may be called upon to use it in the private sector
there's paint on the sand of the blood in the gravel x sky in violet tones when you're addicted to the road you travel it's hard to keep up with your jones on lost nation road you find no blinking sign of hope on lost nation road
the loco motive of the modern man!
bringing in his rumbling sound
he lay his horsepower down he wound the earth with his rusty wheels me make his shady deals on sacred burial ground i want to know where were the united sanctions to tell christopher columbus to leave the americas alone
past the black hills and the badlands passed the smokestacks and concrete canyons fort knox kentucky and the bullion
something's given me a rotten bad feeling i almost hate to see the dawn haunted eyes in my headlights gleaming i got no brakes
i got to roll on on lost nation road
say can you see the blinking sign of hope say you can see the blinking sign of hope say you can see the blinking sign of hope

Ultimate Alice

Written By: Justin Toast

Ultimate Alice gets high she's no stranger to the stratosphere Ultimate Alice is the queen of the aerial scene she gets a bird's eye view as she glides through her lunar year she got the most primo aerodynamic that ever been I'd love you if you flew Ultimate Alice to me Ultimate Alice is hot
we got the news from the factory Ultimate Alice is the pride of the michigan mold you never guess what the fine print says on the warranty i won a trip to the westland company store i got to be there i had to see where Ultimate Alice was born she had a feel for the lay of the land she rode the gulfstream bus with the band smuggled in the luggage like a microphone stand and humming in her hand almost two hundred grams of the purest plastic known to man (Alice yeah) I showed her to my friends and she showed me right back again (Ultimate Alice)
she had a feel for the lay of the land she rode the gulfstream bus with the band smuggled in the luggage like a microphone stand and humming in her hand almost two hundred grams of the purest plastic known to man
Ultimate Alice gets high she's no stranger to the stratosphere Ultimate Alice is the queen of the aerial scene she turned me on to the mystic song of the traveller she turned me on to the evil hungry money machine womb to tomb sperm to worm when i got no one else to turn to you know for whom my heart will burn

The Road Here

Written By: Will Foley

we're driving all christmas eve blinded by the snow home to the families gonna miss new mexico we've seen the road here and the loads that come along and we won't come empty handed if we can just finish this song

the road here and brought the song along the way
