about

"uncle tito" is a concept album about a man who needs to discover himself so he runs away from the cops, away from drugs, and away from all his friends because they betrayed him. Where will he find solace?


this album is our first album it was recorded by our good friend lars rodiguez (aka twister's big brother). we just wanted to do something different than all the mainstream bullshit out their and we wanted to make a difference in the world with our music and just make music with my friends! don't let the man keep you down and tell you drugs are not the power house for you fucking brain!! thanks for all you're support!!

and so i packed my bags away
and i never came back its true

when the police came looking for me
i wasn't their to see
i never kno the things they told me to kno

2 more bags to put away
down the stairs i went
and so when the police came looking for me
i told them that i don't know where i've been today
Track Name: The Boardwalk Man
this goes out to all my skater friends
you know who you are ;)
lets go

i was skating with my friends
and they said we can't come back again
cause all of the sudden the boardwalk was filled
with a bunch of people trying to tell us what to do

so i said what are you doing here today?
you should leave this is where we belong
and so i told my dad
these people are trying to skate at our place
even though we were here first
he said you need to tell them that you were here
that way they don't get the wrong idea

then i took my skateboard and i did an ollie
and they watched me
and they couldn't look away
yea they couldn't look away

do you kno the secret of the skateboard man?
he lives underneath the boardwalk do you kno?
if he doesn't tell you will you walk away???
do you kno the secret of the boardwalk man...
do you kno the secret of where he hides??
the boardwalk man
Track Name: Such A Nice Day
cuz on a day like today
you could do anything that you want
why are we sitting inside on such a nice a day?
all the wind in the trees
we should go outside and play
not a cloud in the sky
so what are you doing inside?
get outside, and have some fun with your friends

we could go fishing or we could go for a walk
their is a lot of things we could do on a day
there's no time on the clock
we could go to the store get some baseball cards
together with my friends we are the one's in charge

why are you sitting inside on such a nice day?
all the wind in the trees we should go outside and play
there's not a cloud in the sky or rain
so what are you doing inside?
get outside and play

we could cut the grass or we could go for a swim
the fish are in the water so you kno its gotta be nice
we could talk about the universe
like what are the stars?
are they balls of gas or are they holes in a giant garbage bag?

what are you doing?????
get outside today
all the wind in the trees its such a nice day
all of my friends are outside cuz there's not a cloud in the sky
so get outside on this nice day

i kno that someday i'm gonna do this
and if i don't?
well its just another day :)
Track Name: Wolf Hat
let's go do you listen??

went to the store today to get myself some clothes
but i didn't have any money
so the shop keeper took the clothes
when i looked in his eyes
and i said that i was looking for something fashionable
he said son you are in the wrong place
you better step up

you better step up
if you kno what's good for you
you better step up
do you know the truth?

then i went and got myself some new fancy clothes
and i knew that it was time for me to get on my way
he said can you even tell me what time it is?
because in every place, theres a new time zone
i cannot believe what's happening to me
i kno that the truth will set me free

do you ever think at night when you're lying next to me
and our hands are together?

do you know everything isn't what it seems??
today is the last day that i will ever sleep
Track Name: No Heads Or Brains

Track Name: Where Were You?
where were you when the witches came?
where were you when i was on that plane?
you were not there for me so i have to ask where were you?
where were you??

where were you when i set the sail?
oceans coming from the hail's
if its fire if its rain i kno that we won't be the same
when i came to you and you came to me
both of us though we were in harmony
but we can't be the same and I ask you...............

where were you when i needed you?
said where were you when i needed you???

you are exactly the same as i remember
never once did you ever pretend to be somebody else
somebody i did not know

when jesus comes back to the place we call home
were will you turn when there's no one on the phone??

yea you are exactly as i remember
never once did you try to be somebody else
somebody i didn't know
Track Name: In There Hands
forgive me father
c theres a time out their and a place for you
when you kno that the school is through
and you look to the west and you shade your eyes
cuz the suns too bright for a cold man's fire!!

can you tell me what it sounds like
when you're fishing out on the pond?
i've seen them in my dreams
i've seen them in the atmosphere
the snow doesn't stop for the rain.........

so you have no choice but to turn around
and walk the other way
walk the other way
if you kno what's good for you

the sun is in there hands
cuz the mountains they tower higher than you kno
just pretend for a minute that you understand
and i'll tell you what you don't know....
is he trying to get to you??
in there hands
Track Name: Get You Back Home
in a time when i was alone
all i could do was think of you and the things you did to me
but if i could go back to that time,
i would tell you that i love you in a time alive :(

but you don't know me.........
you just sit and stair sit and stair
even though I was there for you
you were not there for me!!
there for me!!!

can you believe me just once???
i know you're in there somewhere
its just a matter of time until i get you back home
Track Name: Look To The West
i've heard those tails of the folk singing in the west
and i kno it sounds like a place i'd like to be

don't lose yourself in the actions of others
when you never kno where to turn
cuz your shadow is looking to the west
and then you pass away again

there was a time when you and i
would skate together by the boardwalk
but that time has long since past
that time has long since past!!

Don't lose yourself in the actions of others
When you never kno where to turn
cuz your shadow is looking to the west
and then you pass away again

i just can't get enough
all the people i trusted always stabbing me in the back
and when I turn away
i turn to look to the people i kno won't stab me again!!!!!!!

don't lose yourself in the actions of others
when your looking to the west.......
