Mi Madre 03:33
Mi Madre When I was a kid my hair couldn't be tamed I had double A’s that wouldn't be trained One went east the other west I had to lift my arms just to see my chest I knew all the names of the supermodels By the time that I turned 13 I wanted to be skinny But curvy like the girls In my mother’s Glamour Magazines Ai yi yi yi yi erra justo como mi madre Ai yi yi yi erra justo como mi madre Eggs and chorizo fryin’ in a pan Poppin’ like the belt In my mi madre’s hand My house my rules is what she said I moved out but she stayed in my head Good enough – ain’t ever gonna be it Pretty enough – ain’t ever gonna see it Looking in the mirror who do I see Mi Madre cantando estoy aqui para ti (My mother singing I’m here for you) Ai yi yi yi yi erra justo como mi madre Ai yi yi yi erra justo como mi madre (Intro X 4) Justo como mi madre (Just like my mother) Escondo botellas de vino (I hide wine bottles) Justo como mi madre (Just like my mother) Yo bebo demasiado (I drink too much) Justo como mi madre (Just like my mother) Siempre a dieta (I’m always on a diet) Poco Loco En la cabeza (A little crazy in the head) Justo como mi madre (Just like my mother) Mi fuerza (my strength) Mi esperanza (my hope) Justo como mi madre (Just like my mother) En corazon y alma (my heart my soul) Justo como mi madre (Just like my mother) Bueno y lo malo (the good and bad) Justo como mi madre Mucho mucho mucho Ai yi yi yi yi erra justo como mi madre Ai yi yi yi erra justo como mi madre Ai yi yi yi yi erra justo como mi madre Ai yi yi yi erra justo como mi madre Amo a mi madre (I love my mom) Quero a mi madre (I want my mother) Como mi madre Suckin on my tic tacs Vino en aliento (wine on breath) Like dust on the knic-knacks Como mi madre Aqui para ti Enough about you Let’s talk about me Estare Erra justo como mi madre Estare Erra justo como mi madre

Choice 03:16
I’m younger than my mother’s bible Old enough to seek revival Mortality gets to haunting me The end zone is closing in What might have been has gone I’m tough enough in my own skin To just move on Freedom, is just a choice away Freedom, is a just a choice away I’m too young to retire Too old to get hired Found my crazy Lost my mind In the valley of the daily grind Father son holy ghost It’s clarity I miss the most My head plays tricks on me sometime Freedom, is just a choice away Freedom, is a just a choice away Now the younger me is running free And the older me is here Wondering if the best of me Got swallowed by the years If it did don’t tell me Leave me where I am It took a leap of faith For me to land Freedom, is just a choice away Freedom, is just a choice away

Dogging Me 03:39
Baby you keep on doggin me Ease on up and let me be Don't you cut me down in front of my friends Then crawl in bed and try to make amends You keep on dogging me, Keep on dogging me You keep on dogging me, Keep on dogging me You keep on doggin’ till the blues come around You got my soul, You got my heart So baby don't you pick me apart You gotta gag your nag, Have a little fun Little things make you come undone Come undone Come undone You beat my head like a bongo drum If you want a ride baby use your thumb It’s in my head that’s what you say Then you bust my chops and you walk away Walk away I want to tempt you with my lips Feel your body with my fingertips Make you moan flip your switch But all you wanna to do is …

Worthy 03:12
Mandie from Allsups With a hairdo gone wrong Loves chicken chimichangas And old country songs She used to teach high school Now she just drives around In her ol’ Chevy side step She picks me up when I’m down Make me worthy Of the love of my friends Cause when I’m with them I’m all right … Make me worthy Of the love of my friends ‘Cause when I’m with them I’m all right I’m all right … We float down the river When life goes upstream We roll dice and play cards Drink wine and share dreams It took a long time To grow old friends like mine They circle the wagons When I need peace of mind We make the colors Inside of the wheel The labyrinth we walk Reminds us what’s real We’re the enneagram The Yin and the Yang In good times and bad They’re the ones who remain When all of my days In this world are done I'm gonna jump on a rocket And meet you in the sun We'll roll ‘round the moon Poke holes in the dark So those that we love Might see us in the stars Make me worthy Of the love of my friends Cause when I’m with them It’s all right … Make me worthy Of the love of my friends ‘Cause when I’m with them I’m all right It’s all right I’m all right

WASP 03:45
She left her family on the farm Quit her job and sold her charms Traded in the life she knew To fly those planes in WW2 She flew to serve her country And she’d make history With the Women Airforce Service Pilots Known as WASP It was zoot suits parachutes Landing gear and tires Good ol’ boys made the noise Fly girls put out the fires Watch them fly High above the mountains Watch them fly From sea to shining sea Lift them up They’re the WASP They fly on silver wings Watch’ em fly They tested planes and ferried them For men in WW2 They flew 60 million miles And did every job a man could do The WASP Flew without compromise With ice on their wings And dust in their eyes They trained in Sweetwater Texas At Avenger field Cars lined highway 80 To see them lift their wheels Watch’ em fly High above the mountains Watch them fly From sea to shining sea Lift them up They’re the WASP They fly on silver wings Watch’ em fly Nancy Love And Jackie Cochran Pinned those wings And led the song Buckle down Fifinella Sing it loud And prove’ em wrong Put a flag on her casket Let the truth be known Put medals on her jacket It’s time to bring the flygirls home It was zoot suits parachutes Landing gear and tires Good ol’ boys made the noise Fly girls put out the fires Watch’ em fly High above the mountains Watch them fly From sea to shining sea Lift them up They’re the WASP They fly on silver wings Watch’ em fly

I hear your song I listen to the melody You bring hope to me Your voice takes me away The words you sing Always carry me home To the place we call our own I hear your song Sometimes this world Isn’t meant for you or me We see things we can’t unsee We feel more than we should I hear your song Though you hide the lesser known The ones that cut to the bone I hear your song I would pull the heavens down To help the angels reach the ground They’d return All you’ve lost back to you I’ll be your voice When you have no words to say When you can't drive away I’ll take the wheel I’ll come along When you need me to Your days alone are through I hear your song I would pull the heavens down To help the angels reach the ground They’d return All you’ve lost back to you I hear your song I listen to the melody You bring hope to me I hear your song The words you sing Always carry me home To the place we call our own I hear your song

about

Project 5.3 Album: “Talk to a Human”
Release Date: 8/9/2019
We are in the digital age. There has never been more easy and efficient ways to communicate. If this is the case, why is it so hard to reach somebody? To listen to one another? To celebrate our differences while simultaneously championing those that bring out the good in our society. "Talk to a Human" is my chance to dive in headfirst into all things that both inspire me and cause me to question the kindness in my own heart. Can I forgive the unforgivable? Can I rise from my own battles with my medical condition and the often times crippling side effects? Can I stay kind and empathetic in a political climate hell-bent on warping my sensibilities? Musically, we are unapologetically all over the map on this. Because the focus is not on the genre. It's on what's rooted in the heart.
