about

Atacama is the driest place on earth. A vast wasteland, to pass through it inevitably affects the traveler in profound ways. As the body crosses miles of barren landscape, the mind looks inward, examining itself, unsure of what is there and unprepared for what it will find. With time and distance, the harsh conditions conspire with the traveler's distracted subconscious to present a reality very different than it is. How this new reality is interpreted can be a dangerous and powerful journey. This is the soundtrack to that journey.

about

Borracho Washington, D.C.

Washington DC’s Borracho exploded onto the stoner rock scene in 2011 with the release of their debut Splitting Sky, which was lauded with superlatives like "instant classic" and "must-listen." The album was named to ten 2011 best-of-year lists and earned the band a reputation as serious riff-slingers.

Track Name: Gold From Sand
One more time
The sun does shine
Through earth
The open road ahead
Make my fortune
To bury me when I’m dead
With my hand
I made gold from the sand
Take it now
My will be damned
Sands of time
Head held high
Dignity sold for a ball and chain of gold
Choked on lies
Sand through fingers
Thy will be damned
Not this time
Not the place or the sign
Careful what you wish for
You might get what you deserve
Antagonized
Gods of pain
Swimming in the seas of your misery
Money reigns
Spin the wheel of fortune
For a soul depraved
My fate, my fortune, my crime
Track Name: Overload
Suicide
Holy pride
Starving children
Famine, drought
Bloody wars in the name of God
Mass graves
Millions dead
Your holy gospel is the greatest fraud
Leave it all behind
You can have your false prophets
Who lead the blind
Genocide
Bottom line
Making profits
Gouge the poor
Corporate greed for the pigs of war
Rape the earth
Pass the blame
Manipulation is your game
Leave it all behind
You can have your false prophets
Who lead the blind
I won’t take it anymore
I won’t be your whore
Party lines
Promised lies
Politicians
Hold the reins
Keeping citizens in chains
Soulless puppet
On a string
Corporate sponsors, cash is king
I won’t take it anymore
I won’t be your whore
I won’t take it anymore
I won’t fight your wars
I am a simple man
Just want to be left alone
Don’t want your gods
Telling me how to live
Don’t want no government
Taking what I can’t give
Track Name: Lost In Time
Everything I see
Laid out in front of me
A thousand miles or so
What we find we don’t know
We don’t know
Many years ahead
It will be said
In an ancient tongue
Understood by some
It describes a time
When planets align
Fire from the sky
No one left to wonder why
Wonder why
We’re lost in time, can’t find our way
Throw the switch, flip the phase
Get up to speed, we’re breaking through
What we saw
No one knew
We had a plan
We claimed what’s ours
Live off the land
Toil away the hours
Then the clouds turned black
And the wind blew cold
We turned our back
No time to grow old
To grow old
Way back in time
Before darkness came
Before the muck and the grime
Suffering our endless shame
Now that we’re lost
Nothing remains
Drifting through frost
Shackled in chains
Shackled in chains
Track Name: Drifted Away From the Sun
On the edge of time
Knee-deep in the dust
I look toward the sky
While my mind turns to rust
Everything I see
Kills the sun
I will be washed away
Back to the days
Before greed was king
We made our own way
We shared the same dream
But the dream didn’t last
This dust is all we have
Don’t look away, not much longer now
Don’t look away, we are gone
When did we know
Didn’t see the sign
We waited for years
But the stars didn’t align
Now we hold on for the end
While our minds dissolve
Don't look away, not much longer now
Don’ look away, we are gone
Day turns black, ship’s off track
Can’t turn back
As we drifted away
Nowhere to hide, the stars collide
We’re tossed aside
As we drifted away
Drifted away from the sun
No hope now, no why or how
Death is my vow
As we drifted away
Day turns black, ship’s off track
Can’t turn back
As we drifted away
Nowhere to hide, the stars collide
We’re tossed aside
As we drifted away from the sun
Track Name: Shot Down, Banged Up, Fade Away
What do you say
When the shit hits the fan
What can I say
You gotta stick to the plan
What did you say
About the future, now the past
What we can’t say
Is how long did it last
Shot down
Never got a chance to fight
Banged up
Sure did take a bite
Fade away
Fade away into the night
And never see the light of the sun again
What did she say
We should stick to the plan
No one will say
That this plan is in the can
Nothing left to say
No words to speak
We can’t say
And our words make us weak
And did we say, on that day
When the earth slipped away
We will be found
Track Name: Last Song
It’s time for me to leave
You know I had a real good time
My will was strong
But the journey was long
Now I have to say goodbye
Now I sit in the dry desert baby
Far away from society
Among the ghosts and emptiness
No more humanity
I feel warm winds blowing
A future bright as death
Scorched earth
My rebirth
A destiny suppressed
Now I sit in the dry desert baby
Far away from society
Among the ghosts and emptiness
Erasing humanity
It’s a losing fight
On the cosmic battlefield
Forked tongues
The black sun
Never able to cut the deal
Now I sit in the dry desert baby
Far away from reality
I moved in amongst the ghosts
To embrace my insanity
There is a hell to pay
To take the pain away
