This song is inspired by the many friends and many lovers living under the California sun.


Well Mama said to me last night
Well son tomorrow we begin our flight
i see the amber in her eyes
MAMA was always full of lies

She said i’d meet so many men
and one day i would understand
Well Mama told me it’d be alright
that i’d find love and she stay by my side
But i told her i said

Wonderin where they find all the toys

well Mama i was born i was born to make Noise.
