about

Where would you go if your whole life blew up? If everything you knew ended? If you lost your home, your family, your town? “Mexico” is a metaphor for that place of healing, warmth, bounty…where you can start a new life.

lyrics

Mexico Mexico
knew that I should go
when I saw my brothers die

Life can change without warning
everything comes to an end
can’t just stand around and cry

Mexico Mexico
only place left to go
when I saw the houses burn

Started walking down the road
carrying what I could
when the world took such a turn

Mexico Mexico
where warm winds blow
when I lost my family

On the shore of Mexico
Went there all alone
found a place where I can be

On the shore
found a home
built a life
end my roamin’
heal my wounds
on the sand
