Aurora she shines the sol reflecting in her eyes have you ever met a stranger or fell in love as they pass you by later in the evening who would I see again I was under the belief I'd never catch you out at night but she said what's a belief but a thought I think a thought I think then thought I thought what a relief now make believe make believe and I really do believe it I must have believed it that's just how I see it how could I change what I see or just the way that I perceive it she said what's a belief but a thought I think a thought I think then thought I thought what a relief now make believe make believe and I really do believe it you don't ever get it right and you never get it done earlier in the golden hour she was there she was staring at the sun what's a belief but a thought I think a thought I think then thought I thought what a relief now make believe make believe and I really do believe it you don't ever get it right and you'll never get it done you don't ever get it wrong you never

Brooklyn 03:23
oh pinch me I must think that I am dreaming I see a new life stars are all aligned for all I know see there the room's alive and how the dragon flies we make the past a sunrise if you need a ride it's really great to see you alive man that smile's got a shine like the sun you're so divine I cherish our time now I can see right through a bug eyed betty but just so you know you're my choice bit of calico so let's have a baby it takes a village we'll name her Brooklyn she'll take care of us when we're old it's really great to see you alive man that smile's got a shine like the sun you're so divine I cherish our time you've got that diamond in the rough when the light don't shine on anymore no need for sleep tonight I dream upon your eyes within those eyes there's innocence i guess in that sense well it's just what we are looking for it's really great to see you alive man that smile's got a shine like the sun you're so divine I cherish our time

all you need is love believe don't be afraid to fall in love don't be afraid when was the last time you knew it'd be fine detached from the worry that you would not make it out alive the moment that you try attempting to lasso the moon but you're just shy maybe all you need is love believe don't be afraid to fall in love don't be afraid my darling you deserve it don't be afraid to fall in love don't be afraid the moment you are given and maybe i will find you there and share it don't be afraid to fall in love don't be afraid tell me the last time you had your heart on the line and just at the end it was broken you picked up the pieces kept what you needed left behind all of the bad times with the good times maybe all you need is love believe don't be afraid to fall in love don't be afraid my darling you deserve it don't be afraid to fall in love don't be afraid the moment you are given and maybe i will find you there and share it don't be afraid to fall in love don't be afraid

my love are you wondering if there were any way I would stay well darling if in your mind I'm already gone how could I if you want to live the life you say you want to live but you tell it just how it is tell me something better if you want to live the life you dreamed up as a kid a fairytale that skipped out on the plot tell that story better do you really think the struggle through the pattern that's got hold of you is strong enough to make the struggle stop I walk every step I'm taking marks the point of where I lifted off I thought I'd fake it till I made it but then I made it make to where I was what's the sense of holding on to words that you regret if you left them with a lover that you lost tell me something better if you want to live the life you say you want to live but you tell it just how it is tell that story better do you really think the struggle through the pattern that's got hold of you is strong enough to make the struggle stop you ought to know better tell you're story better do you really think the struggle through the pattern that's got hold of you is strong enough to make the struggle stop

Honestly 04:44
say your lemonade is that one homemade or does store bought just taste better fame is that your game who claimed to give you wings I think that syrup's got to your brain I see the horns of a bully I think that bully is bullshit sing a melody like the one campaign sang sugar free tastes better by the end of day it's not the name you made or the payout you piss away I see the horns of a bully I think that bully is bullshit honestly I could care less the means work's hard to find it seems i guess our difference is who we are by the day there's ever profit made you've already ben played that difference is who we really are

Ease Up 03:24
called I am into the fire fall upon a arrow with it's knock on a tree I burn away the pieces find that I wade in a tide name the waves to pass the time appreciate the passing by a little better a little better no matter the weather ease up ride the tide grace is flowing like a river the more it goes the more it stays ease up it's alright does it ever feel good to you like every fool like every sage I burn away the pieces and find that I wade in a tide name a wave pass the time appreciate the passing by a little better a little better no matter the weather you'll find me barefoot in the fire and does it ever feel good to feel like I do ease up now let the tide carry you like a river it's always gonna get just a little better a little better no matter the weather or whether not ease up ride the tide grace is flowing like a river the more it goes the more it stays ease up it's alright does it ever feel good to you like every fool like every sage

for those who say it can't be done pay no attention they shouldn't interrupt whoever's doing it when they scream impossible impossible just know that you can take it with a grain of salt it's only perception no matter what the paper says there's nothing on the TV that will show you how to make it happen are you ready for it this time ready for when it happens it's already happening i bet you're ready for it this time ready for when it happens it's already happened I have a friend who thinks that we're all doomed so she says just go find you're bliss within the ignorance no matter what the paper said still nothing on the TV is gonna show her a life any different until she stepped outside and saw it in a stranger's eye there it happened she felt compassion again are you ready for it this time ready for when it happens it's already happening i bet you're ready for it this time ready for when it happens it's already happened the moment that you gave up on your own damn life it's hard to deny that you give up on the future of your child and the flame that burns inside feel it feel it burning feel it feel it burning are you ready for it this time ready for when it happens it's already happening i bet you're ready for it this time ready for when it happens it's already happened

the year was 2081 everyone was equal in every which way George and Hazel had a son up until the HG took him away ballerina my empress take my hand we'll show them the meaning of a dance kiss the ceiling leap show high from our toes off the floor kiss the ceiling gravity's best off ignored George walked in with a can of beer say that she was crying but can't remember what for forget the sad things like deer on the moon take my hand we'll show them the meaning of a dance kiss the ceiling leap show high from our toes off the floor kiss the ceiling gravity's best off ignored syncing up my heartbeat to the beat we synchronize our heartbeats to the beat kiss the ceiling leap show high from our toes off the floor kiss the ceiling gravity's best off ignored that one sounded like a dozzy

about

Since forming in 2010, bandmates Kyle Gray, Alex Trujillo, & Gregg Ziemba have released two studio records as Rubedo: Massa Confusa (2012) and Love is the Answer (2013). The trio’s latest record, Vaca (2017), is their first release without Ikey Owens at the helm -- who recorded, produced and played on the first albums and toured with Rubedo -- as Owens passed away unexpectedly in late 2014. Stunned, upset and unsure how to proceed, the trio decided to push themselves into uncharted territory, recording with musician/producer Johnny Bell at JazzCats Studios in Owen’s hometown of Long Beach, CA.
The result is a Vaca, a glimmering pop-minded piece of sonic catharsis, a therapy session created in honor of Ikey Owens. Unlike Rubedo’s past psych-rock leanings, Bell’s production takes the band’s specialty as a live act and translates that spirit into recorded form. It was mixed by the godfather of grunge Jack Endino and mastered by Dave Cooley of Stones Throw Records.
Vaca is a record of Rubedo’s 20-plus years of friendship, a partnership with old school Denver roots, and an indelible Long Beach connection.
