about

"Simply soulful songs + inscrutable interludes = awesome album"
-Sonja Sunny Stojkovic, British Columbia, Canada

The rhythm tracks for "La Quinta" were recorded live, in our basement practice dungeon, below the streets of the Tenderloin District, San Francisco. The resulting mixes were then seasoned with analog tape goo at The Old School Studio in Caspar, CA, on the Mendocino coast. The album features some searing lead guitar work from Smokin' Joe Ransom. Nathan McCoy (Rivel) contributed keys to "Small Dreams". and the legendary Tom Cook (of The Debonaires and The Revivers) did some organ work on "Do It". Burnt's fifth album brings head-nodding sounds of hope, and is the result of a minimalist approach to songwriting and production.

Track Name: Generation
Who will pick it up now
the next generation
who will clean it up yea
the next generation

if living in love
means living for today
the past become the future
here we go again
if living in love
we learn from yesterday
the future's now the present
don't you throw it all away

who will pick it up now
the next generation
who will clean it up yea
the next generation

voices from the past
listen in the future

if the quest for power
means oil in the sea
generations forward
endure catastrophe
but if it's energy you seek
look closer you will see
the children of tomorrow
are living naturally
Track Name: Willie

Track Name: Do It
Do it if it makes you feel better
do it if it makes you fell good
do it if it makes you feel better
do it like you know you should

'cause it's so hard
hard to hold
so much inside
if you know what i mean
so why don't you just lay down
just lay down

do it if it gets you excited
do it if it makes you feel fine
do it if it gets you real high
then do it 'till you blow your mind

'cause it's so hard
hard to hold
so much inside
yea you know what i mean
so why don't you
just lay down
just lay down...

and do
Track Name: Heavy Heart
Eyes open wide
get closer
to understand
Arms open up
for sure
fear is your only hurt

Heavy Heart
let love back in
i'm a stranger
soaking in the rain
Whoa Heavy Heart
at your door i remain
knock knock
unlock and let love in
knock knock
unlock and let love in

Now close your eyes
and picture
the rising sun
Give up your grip
let go
trust is your only hope

Heavy Heart
let love back in
i'm the water
wash away your tears
Whoa Heavy Heart
by your side i remain
so smile
light up and let love in
smile
light up and let love in
Track Name: Wanderlust
I'm feelin restless guess i'm
bound to roam
destined to question
ready for home
a lifetime of longing
and wanting to go
no use in pretending
i've just got to know

whole for a moment
still in the evening
held to the ground
gone in the morning
looking for love
searching for sound

o restless feelin
won't leave me alone
visions of floating down
the big river some more
kickin up dust
wanderlust
i've lived a little
but it's never enough

whole for a moment
still in the evening
held to the ground
gone in the morning
looking for love
searching for sound
Track Name: Small Dreams
Dream small my friends
so this life is uncertain i know
it never ends
dream small my friends
so this world is uncertain i know
we'll just begin again

until then
i don't pretend
to have the answers
but these chances
hearts free to sing new anthems
keep dancin'
keep dancin'
and so
until time
these small dreams
they brought us one step closer
one step closer
one step closer together
Track Name: View
we drive all night
for you
sleep calls us all
it's true
because a glow inside
keeps me alight
i will shake
these blues

oh what a view

we sing each note
rings true
we breathe each tune
we do
because we feel alive
moon up high
i will dance
for you

oh what a view

at home tonight
the rush of life
washed by
i watched the wind
blow in the garden
through the doorway
through my eye
at you

oh what a view
