Bobby Lewis We're so happy to have these tunes out!

Bad Juju is partly a lament of bad luck that seems to follow us around from time to time and partly a slight at those of us who, like me, blame external factors for the short straws we get stuck picking sometimes, so to speak.

Saving Face sort of continues that same line of thinking—if things aren’t going great, curling up in bed and feeling sorry for ourselves is not going to solve those problems for us, as much we’d all like to believe it will.

Track Name: Bad Juju
I
I’m fizzling out here
I’m losing my nerve
I’m aching
So I’m guessing this is what I deserve

I’m just a shell now
A shard of a shard
Black clouds follow me around
like bodyguards
And it’s not getting better, no, no, no


Passengers
Get off the train
An age-old sickness with a new-age strain
I got a bad juju about me
I can’t keep it contained

I
I’m petering out here
What is the use?
It can’t be karma anymore
Cause I’ve paid my dues

A perfect pariah
Without any faults
And I’ll blame a guardian devil for the results
So it’s not getting better, no, no, no

Passengers
Get off the train
Vengeful gods use their own names in vain
Passengers
Get off the train
A shot of morphine with a shooting pain
I got a bad juju about me

It’s a landslide
It’s the flood
It’s a landslide
It’s the flood
It’s a landslide
It’s the flood
It’s a landslide
Track Name: Saving Face
You’re under your covers
Who’s crunching your numbers?
Flames will only grow bigger
At the snap of your finger

I'll try to act like I've lost my way and beg for forgiveness
Channeling finer days and minding my business
If taking up space is my saving grace
How could I worry myself with saving face?

We’re safe in the masses
Embers buried by ashes
Age ain’t likely to fade
Just ‘cause there’s a reaction does not mean there’ll be a change
You’re lost in the numbers
You’re lost in the numbers

I'll try to act like I've lost my way and beg for forgiveness
Channeling finer days
Like praying for Christmas.
If taking up space is my saving grace
How could I worry myself with saving face?
