Music from the heart and head, the campfire and the cosmos.

Steve Skinner is a trendsetting trailblazer who does things the old fashioned way. He spends time in the desert canyon rivers playing concerts for great blue herons and canyon wrens.

Track Name: A Blaze of Orange
Waging a war on people and facts
Can't keep up still pushing us back
To the good old days when our country was great
When we all focused on stuff that we hate

Drilling big holes in the sensitive zones
Not a spot on the place that we're leaving alone
Need a deeper hole to bury the bones
Outside the range of the smart smart phones

Rules and regulations and common sense
Walk 'em on back toss 'em over the fence
Working together almost half of us
Leaving the meek ones back in the dust

Winning every time that we're playing the game
Winning so much that we're going insane
13 billion for a presidential plane
Gold on the inside but the outside's the same

Blaze
A blaze of orange

in a blaze of orange the rockets take flight
The new world leader is spoiling for a fight
Take us all with you as the bombs fall down
Barking like a bulldog
and looking like a clown

A constant war footing got us doing the dance
Pushing all the buttons and you're taking a chance
That no one has the vision and no one else can see
That it's our great nation starting world war three

Blaze
A blaze of orange
Blaze
A flash of light

A blaze
A blaze of orange
Day
A day at night

In a blaze of orange the rockets take flight
The new world leader is spoiling for a fight
Take us all with you as the bombs fall down
Barking like a bulldog
And acting like a clown

A constant war footing got us doing the dance
Pushing all the buttons and we're taking a chance
No one has the vision and no one can see
That it's our great nation starting world war three

The clock is ticking the countdown is on
Time to unleash the nuclear bombs
The shackles are off and anything goes
Hunker in a trailer while the hurricane blows

No place is safe 'cept under the steeple
Here is the church and here are the people
Staring at the distance reflected in the glass
A blaze of orange in a nuclear blast

Blaze
A blaze of orange
Blaze
A flash of light
Blaze
A blaze of orange
Blaze
It's day at night

Grabbing at the pussy
and I give her a kiss
Rolling on the microphone
you don't want to miss
a single lyric get out your zoom
Take a golden shower
in the hotel room

Everything is BS
Are you writing this down?
Dropping off my cheeks
like the tears of a clown
Turning on the TV
to catch the fake news
Tweeting out my feedback
how can you refuse?

Going straight at em
just like nelson did
Sending in the Navy
Gonna send in your kid
To fight in a battle
that can't be won
For my private amusement
yeah this is fun
