about

The New Slave California

The New Slave has always been moving towards some unknown entity, logging their experiences with stripped-down lyrics, banks of gritty keyboards, a howling electric guitar, and acoustic textures. Although well-travelled, their spaceship has always yearned for more adventure. The consequence is undoubtedly human; but being human isn't all it's cracked up to be. ... more

Track Name: Golden Summer Smile
I know it’s cold outside
But it’s warm in here
Why don't you follow your heart?
Give me your energy
That stuff you get for free
That stuff will tear you apart
Don't let them tear you down
When they come running ‘round
When they come that’s just the start

Golden summer smile
It’s in my head
It’s in my eyes
I want you to know my love is so big

Don't let them lead you ‘round
Like you’re from underground
Why don't you tell them to stop?
Don't give your energy
That stuff you get for free
That stuff will keep us apart
Track Name: There is a Way
There is a way to see again
All you do is get yourself to the light
There’s so much light

There is a way to feel again
All you do is turn yourself to the light
All you do is get yourself to the light
There’s so much light

When the world’s confusion drags you down
Don't you give up, turn around
There’s so much light
Track Name: Love is the Answer, Benjamin
You are a hero of mine
I stay up late and watch you

And when you save the day
I just want to be near you
And when you save the day
I just want to be with you

Love is the answer, Benjamin

You’ve got the world at your feet
And you’ll always need me
Don’t let an old man down
You’ve got the world at your feet
But you’ll always need me
Don’t let an old man down

Love is the answer, Benjamin
Track Name: Hump
Make me believe
I wanna believe in something
Make me see
I wanna see something
If you’re there, show me you’re there
If you’re nowhere, well that’s easier to believe
I’m not talking about superstition
I’m talking about my needs

I wanna feel something nice and smooth
Breathe in, breathe out
Nice and smooth
I feel you give yourself to me
As your holy light shines between your legs
And I’m gonna get all up in that shit
Nice and smooth

I’m starting to sleep inside of you
I’m starting to dream from inside of you
I’m starting to sleep inside of you
I’m starting to drink from inside of you
I’m starting to sleep from inside of you
I’m starting to dream inside of you

And the story goes on and on
One minute you’re here
Doing the things you do
And the next minute you’re gone

It don’t matter who you pray to
It don’t matter who you give your money to
Track Name: Building Spring
Orange high glow
Flowers in the snow
Happiness is in the air

Love and grace
Rainbows on our faces
Feels like a Circus or a Fair

You and me
Summertime free
It’s easy to be alive

Green pillow haze
Riding that wave
Hearts full of surprises
Track Name: Beating the Bully
I’m walking on over
I’m in the clouds
I feel you coming to me

I’m walking on over
I’m in the clouds
I feel you come on over to me

I’m ready to win
I’m ready to begin the journey
And no skeletons in closets can get me

I’m walking on over
I’m in the clouds
I feel you come on over to me
Track Name: 99 Steps (Reprise)
This is not my finest hour
My thoughts of ending it all right here
A wasted life can break a heart
I'm down by the sea
screaming at the waves

There's a ghost inside my head
Who can't pay the bills I've made
Who can't say the words I've said
Desperation covers me
As I walk out into the sea
Forgive me

I can pay the bills I've made
I can say the words I've said
Desperation covers me
As I walk out into the sea
Forgive me
Please forgive
