about

The Great Okra San Diego, California

In the early Spring of 2012, The Great Okra was born.

The group formed a sound that was as gentle as it could be raw while encompassing many influences. Self-proclaimed as a type of Acid Folk, “The Great Okra” created a sonic landscape of gale force. At times it’s a gratuitous destruction of logic and sanity and on occasion; as simple as a whisper. ... more

Track Name: Worried Man
I'm just a worried man
can you really blame me?
I'm just a blind man
I will never see
I'm just a struggling man
trying to place himself on top
I'm just a fake man
Pretending he is what he is not

And isn't it pathetic
to have to live with such a need the way I do
Isn't it quite graphic
to have to let you see me bleed the way I do
the way I do

I'm just a stubborn man
I got room to disagree
I'm just a chained man
I will never be set free
I'm just a lonesome man
I got no one to call friend
I'm just an old man
but I was never new back then

And isn't it pathetic
to have to live with such a need the way I do
Isn't it quite graphic
to have to let you see me bleed the way I do
the way I do
Track Name: In my Mind
I fell in love with a moment
Now I'm chasing ghosts
my words have grown meaningless
all I have left are echos

But in my mind
it could have gone on forever
In my mind
things were better

and Oh oh oh,
In my mind
and Oh oh oh
In my mind

and I've grown wearisome
by being here again
and it's not fair for it to feel so real
and still be pretend

but in my mind
I will never lose the touch of your skin
in my mind
we could have been anything

and Oh oh oh,
In my mind.
and Oh oh oh,
In my mind.

And when I look into your eyes
I see perfection in what it is
Now stands the realization
I could feel the difference

And in our conversations
they feel like empty space
and dead words
and it hurts, but for you
I feel so much worse

And oh oh oh,
We could have been a different story
And oh oh oh,
I'm so sorry.
Track Name: Low and Easy
I'm feeling low and easy
just waitin' for the sun
to leave my bones dry

I'm feeling low and easy
I've got no place
for this soul to hide

I'm feeling low and easy
like the footsteps
of a dead man

I'm feeling low and easy
like the fingers
of a palmless hand

I'm feeling low and easy
like the footsteps
of a dead man

I'm feeling low and easy
I've got no fingers
On this palmless hand

I'm feeling low and easy
just waitin' for the sun
to leave my bones dry

I'm feeling low and easy
I've got no place
for this soul to hide
Track Name: Into the Sun
Into the Sun we go
to look for the place
we lost a long time ago

Join me, take my hand
float away
to foreign
and distant lands

you make me feel
like I'm more than just energy
taking the place of matter
for some time

I refuse to believe
that what I'm feeling right now
is just electic current
running down my spine

Bastard sons, we have become
there are no more tears
from what has come
and gone

Reach yourself
sink real low
its possible
you just gotta learn to let go

The broken pieces of your life
lay in endless fields before you
waiting to placed together
once again

Both fell through
now we're back at the beginning
somehow this is how
I knew it would end
