Special Thanks

This journey has been filled with happiness, inspiration and hard work, all in a transcendence to turn a dream into reality of
producing a home-brewed album with different musical styles and sounds. We are in deep need of a societal and cultural revolution based on empathy, understanding and altruism. Never limit yourself to one idea, one ideology and most importantly one type of music!


I'd like to thank everyone who has supported me on this journey through music including friends and family:
To my Dad Jose-Luis Orozco, thank you for the wonderful album artwork and for the inspiration to go into music, my Mom
Julie Castro-Orozco for the inspiration and supporting me along the way, my siblings Gabriel Orozco, Maya Orozco and Luis Orozco for at an early age exposing me to all kinds of music, to my Aunts/Uncles/Cousins for keeping the family together, Andrew Sashi Peterson for contributing to the intro of this album and for the filming, Zachary Strom for the inspiration and support, Kaizer Hossain for years of friendship, motivation and inspiration, Jose Yonalbin Cabrera Valdez for the continuing inspiration and for guiding me on the right path , all my friends back in LA and back in my hometown of Berkeley, to all the educators in my life, High School teachers from New Roads High School and college professors from UC Santa Cruz, to all the folks that I have met in my life, and to those who I will meet in the future.
Lastly to those who have inspired me and continue to inspire me to this day and are no longer present with us in this world:

William B. Castro and Aaronette White.

Track Name: Shiva on the Ganges
Travelers don't walk in a straight line
The memories of the divine
Intertwined in the destinies unforseen
Not so keen are we all
Come to a faraway place
I have left my home behind
In search of something
That's not easy to attain
We have all been channeled into a system
Molded and confined
Lekin mera nam Pablo hai (translation: but my name is Pablo)
Pero mi nobre es Pablo
To express oneself
In real time
In real time
In real time
In real time
Waiting for something to happen
Here goes the chime
A person to be
Is that such a crime
Creating dialogue with one another
Creating it within yourself
It's a process
Man just give it
Just give it
Just give it some time
Standing in a moral ground
The mediating ego
Caught between your id and super ego
Picking fights with the ones you love
Sacred white cow
I see a sacred white cow
I see a scared white cow
On the river bank
Of the river ganges
Along the river
We met our Guru-ji
He taught us the sitar
He taught us the sitar
And then he told us
How long we'd live
Track Name: Desert Journey
Off to the roadside in Navajoland
An old abandoned house
Uranium soils the water supply
What does a vortex look like
A family used to live there
They were sent on a trail of tears
Longing for their homeland
What does a vortex look like

Walk in the desert
Connect with the land
Deep within sand
Dissolves the borderland

West coast setting sun
One day we'll play again
Cycle of the earth
Cradles our own birth

In Tilonia I lost my mind
A curse of painful delusion
in the end I changed my destiny
What does a vortex look like

Hugging a Joshua tree
A rattlesnake beckons me
On top of a mountain I found my voice
What does a vortex look like

Walk in the desert
Connect with the land
Deep within sand
Dissolves the borderland

West coast setting sun
One day we'll play again
Cycle of the earth
Cradles our own birth

A man named Angel sits in a van and tells me his life story
He came from Veracruz crossing the Chihuahuan and Sonoran deserts
And picks fruit in the fields of the Pajaro Valley for $9 an hour
Back home he used to make just $12 a day
He works and can't go to school
He works to take care of his younger siblings so that they can have an education
His only wish in life is for someone to take care of him just like he takes care of his siblings

The Sun goes down
El Nuevo Dia

The Sun goes down
El Nuevo Dia
Track Name: Taken Away By Waves of Melodies
Waves please take me away
Look beyond past the fray
Of every day stress
No need to dress to impress
Just caress the waves as they take me away
I sleep nestled in a palm tree
Please stress just let me be
Fluid like the tide of the ocean
As the sun comes up begin a new cycle
As I lay asleep in the ocean
The next day I wake up in motion
Die and resurrected in a cycle
Oh fresh young coconut quench my thirst
As I become immersed and I finish this verse
My prowess is not stifled
Embrace the passion inferno
life the eternal

Waves take me away
Ocean take me away
Waves please take me away
To a place so deep
Waves take me away
Ocean take me away
Waves please take me away
To a place so deep

El abuelo el cielo nos da dirección
El horizonte ha hecho nuestro potencial a seguir
Seguir con el poder
Damos gracias al norte, al sur, al este, y al oest
Sin fondo el mar nos lleva
Hay dos adultos peleando
Pero tratamos a conseguir para las genereaciónes que siguen
Hasta la victoria siempre

Waves take me away
Ocean take me away
Waves please take me away
To a place so deep
Waves take me away
Ocean take me away
Waves please take me away
To a place so deep
Track Name: Growth Process
I'm walking down on the street saying hi to my homies
People saying hi that don't even know me
San Fran Sunset district
LA Venice blvd
Queens Jackson blvd
Back to my hometown on Ashby
Living vicariously through the music
And i'm here for the next hook
Therapy there it be let me be
For now I see for now I see for now I see
Put my feet on the ground
Guiding me through the sound
Gonna go to town man I'm found
From every experience try to pick up something new
Colors in my mind filled with sounds of the seasons
Causin' havoc in the city
Watch what you say 'cuz i'm witty

Social change starts in the soil where the tree grows
Brothers and sisters let us not become foes
I'ma take blows for my family and friends
From anyone who tries to stomp on our path
Back in 8th grade I used to suck at math
Reach out to others and they'll reach out to you
Who woulda knew that was why you were blue
India in the back of my mind
Trying to unwind and find like kind
Growth is healing growth is wellness
It never ceases
A unique process to yourself
Watch my ego as it shreds to pieces
No matter which way you swing
Like a homerun
No matter the team
You play for your own
Develop your voice
Speak up and be heard
Nurture your inner child
And increase your capacity to grow
Track Name: We Beings
Look closely things may not be as they appear
The greek alphabet Alpha Beta Upsilon
Similarities to modern romaji
Gamma rho and pi
Gamma misinterpreted by the masses
Mysteries buried in the past
The reversed R
Traced back in time
Rho the letter P
Now look at pi
Pi pi?
Two meanings in one letter
The invention of the circle, the wheel?
A letter was added
History and symbols dictate humanity's ideas
Things are not as they appear
Things are not as they appear
Things are not as they appear
Fear
For vital resources as they disappear.

Nullified out of fear of our social expectations
Unknowing that this are infiltrations
People wanting to be, to see, to bring and sing brainwashed minds
Becoming conforming imposters
They cynically look at you and laugh their tonsils off
Social desirability has become the norm
To become god not I discourage you
Inspire what is meant to be desired
Like the way the Tigris and Euphrates inspired civilization
Instead love we the beings
Because we are beautiful
We are beautiful
We are beautiful
We are beautiful
We are beautiful
Track Name: De Colores (Live)
De colores, De colores se visten los campos en la primavera
De colores, De colores son los pajaritos que vienen de afuera
De colores, de colores es el arcoiris que vemos lucir
Y por eso los grandes amores
De muchos colores
Me gustan a mi
Y por eso los grandes amores
De muchos colores
Me gustan a mi
Canta el gallo
Canta el gallo con el quiri quiri quiri quiri quiri
La gallina
La gallina con el cara cara cara cara cara
Los polluelos
Los polluelos con el pio pio pio pio pio
Y por eso los grandes amores
De muchos colores
Me gustan a mi
Y por eso los grandes amores
De muchos colores
Me gustan a mi
