about

And while I did feel a touch of Grey, (1)
The inkling maybe to Runaway, (2)
Amidst your troves of As and Os (3)
Exclaiming “Hellyeah!” my missus, my darling, my rose. (4)
Drowning in your River of tears, (5)
A Crybaby crying for so many years, (6)
A throne that Her Highness could never have sold (7)
To mend broken hearts by means of Control; (8)
But before ol’ girl knew it, she ran out of Time (9)
Now Everybody’s Talkin’ about my Indigo Child. (14)

about

Indigo Child Los Angeles, California

What started out as a Red Hot Chili Peppers cover band turned into our labor of love for the last 8 years. We've had personnel changes, we've cycled band names, we've had our highs and lows, but we're still just getting started.

Remember, every one of us an Indigo Child.

Track Name: Grey
Let me gather my words
'cause it's not easy to say
I have negative thoughts
And they won't go away

I surf through the night
On a lyrical stream
And I'm stuck in your eyes
In this mystical dream

Barely berated for my baritone scream
Fairly ferocious in the way that you lean
Discover your senses by tasting the mud
There's no shame in the matrix, go spilling some blood

For every night
Every minute escapes
You're out of line
There's a shift in the waves
We're not black and white
I seem to get in your way
You look happier now
That the world is awfully gray

Back on the saddle in the valley of hills
My horse stops for a drink and to catch a few thrills
She whispers an inkling of a buggy bouquet
And I live on a whim which I consider risque

No, the meds aren't helping
They don't take off the edge
If I get near the top
I should jump off the ledge
I surf through the night
On a lyrical stream
And I'm stuck in your eyes
In this mystical dream

For every night
Every minute escapes
You're out of line
There's a shift in the waves
We're not black and white
I seem to get in your way
You look happier now
That the world is awfully gray

WAIT! DON'T! Please bring everybody
HERE! HOME! Let them see the damage
LOVE! NO! We reject your wager
If you could turn the pages

For every night
Every minute escapes
You're out of line
There's a shift in the waves
We're not black and white
I seem to get in your way
You look happier now
That the world is awfully gray
Track Name: Runaway
All the cigarettes that I have smoked
I think I'm choking on your rope
All the pretty faces that I see
They don't mean anything to me
But you do
Like you do

All the other pretty girls I see
They never look at me
But you do
Like you do

Hey, why don't we run away?
Why don't we run away?
I don't think they'll understand
Like you do.

Oh, the apparition grows tenfold
Her reflection, it breaks my mold
My soul
My mold

All the other places I could be
But I sit here rather carelessly
For you
Just you

Hey, why don't we run away?
Why don't we run away?
I don't think they'll understand
But you do
Like you do
Track Name: Os
Locked away
Well, you came to the right place
My saving grace
Is the blood on my face

So why aren't you hiding?
Where will you be fighting?
Are you excited?
'cause I'm excited.

O - O - O - O

Drivin' away with that blood on my bass
I'm losin' this place and I'm losin' my shape
I'm so aromatic and so acrobatic
With you

I wanted to
Be a man of action
To readdress
Your perception
And wash it down
With the grim satisfaction
Well, are you excited?
'cause I can't hide it.

O - O - O - O

Drivin' away with that blood on my face
I'm losin' my face and I'm losin' my shake
I'm so aromatic and so acrobatic
With you
Track Name: Hellyeah
There's a feeling I get
Driving out to the east
Sun is glaring straight at me
Is my reflection a fact
Or a conditioning that
Has made me who I had to be?

Well, maybe I am just a dog
And maybe that's just what you want
I feel the cosmos wake me up
Every time I sip your cup

I said, "Hellyeah!"

See, music is not politics
But somebody's gotta say what's right and shit
You think messages convey in average songs?
Well, you're fucking wrong.

So maybe I am just a god
And maybe that's just what you want
I feel the cosmos wake me up
Every time I sip your cup

I said, "Hellyeah!"
Track Name: River
Blue panorama panoramic distillation
She's bending forward to relieve all my frustration
So educated, knows the names of constellations
No natural necessary necessitation

Oh, she comes and she goes
Like a river rose
She comes and goes

Holding on to hope
For home
The greatest tales aren't told
They unfold

Yeah, she comes and she goes
Like a river rose
She comes and goes

She don't respond to my new methods of persuasion
She makes me ponder meta-mental masturbation
By now I've exercised and exorcised my patience
But I don't complain when she don't meet my expectations

Oh, she comes and goes
Like a river rose
She comes and goes

Holding on to hope
For home
The greatest tales aren't told
They unfold

Yeah she comes and she goes
Like a river...

It makes me sick in my
Stomach tickin' love
You're kinda quick but oh
It's nothing
Terribly, I do disagree
With your guarantees because
I'm coming
Fading gray, fire escape this way
Don't touch the cabaret 'cause oh
It's nothin'
Leopard trees and a newborn Jesus
Guarantees are just...

Holding on to hope
For home
The greatest tales aren't told
They unfold

What am I supposed to do when she comes and goes?
Like a river rose, like a river rose
Holding on to hope
But I have to let go now

She comes and goes
Like a river rose
Like a river
Track Name: Crybaby
Lie, baby, lie down
Cry, baby, cry
Breathe, baby, breathe now
You're gonna die

If conscience is your motive
Like a local locomotive
All the maestros and the ancients
Say you want to be the same
So take a picture, take control
They'll take your picture, clothes off
The maestros and the ancients
Say you cry, baby, cry
Track Name: Her Highness
Sat up on the hill
Down by the riverside
I met a queen
She wants to be recognized
Lays down in her throne
Controls your soul
Bound to break apart my pride

Gone loco today
I've been disturbed by the
Words and images of
What I prey
We are just predators in sync
Down by the bay
Roped to the solid ground
I have repaid
My debts
Now I sleep so sound

I want to be free
I want to be me
All the time I
Try so hard and don't get far
It gets harder, it gets hard
I want to be free

My sweet jezebel
I come when you ring my bell
I'm bent in all directions
Searching for your satisfaction
Instead, a sad rejection
Eloping to find a cure
There is no hope for me
Her highness sits on her throne
Made of solid stone

I want to be free
I want to be me
All the time I
Try so hard and don't get far
It gets harder, it gets hard
I want to be free

It's just what I'm asking
Just what I'm asking for
Track Name: Control
I want to feel
Alive
I want to feel
Like I can die

Control
(We can stay like this forever
Or we'll change, but it's not better
It depends on independence
Which is something I have none of
Anymore)

I'll buy myself your insanity
For this manner of control
I dine my faith in your vanity
For this I am consoled

I want to feel
Alone
And I want to know
That I am known

Control
(We can stay like this forever
Or we'll change, but it's not better
It depends on independence
Which is something I have none of
Anymore)

I'll buy myself your insanity
For this manner of control
I dine my faith in your vanity
For this I am consoled

Control

I buy myself your insanity
For this matter of control
I dine my faith in your vanity
For this I am consoled
I cannot live so religiously
You don't know, you don't know
I'd stick my neck for poverty
Control

Alive
Alone
Alive
Control
Alive
Track Name: Time
Awake
For all the rhythm in the world
All the rhythm in the world
Is so wonderful
Awake
For all the people in the world
All the people in the world
Are so colorful

I heard you knockin' at my
I didn't know what it was
You learn to fly before you
Heck, I don't know you
So why do I owe you?

Where have I been
All this time?
The dreary lectures
The pure conjecture
Magnified and magnetized.
Where have I been
All this time?

Awake
For all the rhythm in the world
All the rhythm in the world
Is so wonderful
Awake
For all the people in the world
All the people in the world
Are so dutiful

I heard your knockin' at my door
I didn't know what it was for
Learn to fly before you soar
And don't fear the laughter
Conquer the rapture

Where have I been
All this time?
The dreary lectures
The pure conjecture
Magnified and magnetized.
Where have I been
What has happened
With all this time?
