Track Name: Vientre
(Instrumental)
Track Name: First Light
Suspended in a seemingly endless sea
Like an ancient bottle withholding secret love notes
Shifting up and over
Crashing, fight back against the waves

Distant sounds beat upon your void eardrum
As if a long awaited battle is about to ensue
Hanging, waiting in an endless abyss
Time becomes obsolete as memory blurs

Through an underground tunnel
Till the limit is reached
A scream finally pierces minds, hearts and minds
Life is heard, life is seen, life is felt

Eyelids twitch from the fluorescent lights glare
Breathes of the arid stagnant air emanate
So brittle, so fresh, so new to this world
So brittle, so fresh, so new to this world
Track Name: Ground Zero
On hands and knees stretching, pulling along ground zero
Shape molds resembling more and more the final form
Upright, a stance, bridgeworks emerge and might boosts
Each leg lifting and finding solid land is a champion’s feat

New finding, understanding realized through taste, touch, smell, hearing, sight
To discover, discern and comprehend
Atomically mirror repeat, mirror repeat
As if 30 years of life, holds no magnitude

On hands and knees stretching, pulling along ground zero
Shape molds resembling more and more the final form
Upright, a stance, bridgeworks emerge and might boosts
Each leg lifting and finding solid land is a champion’s feat

For procreators the answer is always NO NO NO
As you battle to manage everything and not be controlled
I can do it myself! I can do it by myself!
Miniature budding - minds sparks!
Track Name: The Grand Circle / Distante en sus Sueños
My mama told me to be kind
My papa said to me look them in the eye
My sister warned me to listen well
My brother promised to hold my hand

I walked in the room filled with wooden things
I saw the other children starring the same as me
A tall woman approached with sandy wavy hair
She wore the smell of roses in her cotton dress

I stood tight

My mama told me to be kind
My papa said to me look them in the eye
My sister warned me to listen well
My brother promised to hold my hand

I don’t know why but I began to cry
Did they want to dispose of me? Why?
I squeezed my brother’s hand and asked him not to go
He said don’t worry child be back before you know

I stood tight

My mama told me to be kind
My papa said to me look them in the eye
My sister warned me to listen well
My brother promised to hold my hand

With the other children we sat patiently
In grand circle we were welcomed, we were scared
The lengthy lady spoke of letters, numbers and toys
Her calming presence oppressed my fears

We were asked to reach cling onto the hands next to ours
Then I knew it we would be okay, just another world to share

I told my mama I was kind
Said to my papa I looked them in the eye
Confirmed with my sister I listened well
Promised my brother hands became many in that room
Track Name: Nights by Candlelight
Nights by candlelight are not spent with you
But with a pen engraving our names as one mixed
With hearts and flowers onto this dripping paper

Thoughts of love tingle in my mind and they creep hastily up my spine
But those tender words settle wedged between my heart and lips
Your picture hidden beneath my pillow at night is my most genuine secret

This clandestine love is the only stability I’ve known
Fights with friends and mom will come and go but I know
I’ll always have you waiting quietly

Thoughts of love tingle in my mind and they creep hastily up my spine
But those tender words settle wedged between my heart and lips
Your picture hidden beneath my pillow at night is my most genuine secret

As our sweaters brush each other, fibers touching, my lungs grasp for air
I try to stay cool but these hormonic sentiments jig
Like water dancing sporadically on a hot skillet
Not until your musky scent has been swept away by the wind
Do I fall from fantasy and broken reality

Thoughts of love tingle in my mind and they creep hastily up my spine
But those tender words settle wedged between my heart and lips
Your picture hidden beneath my pillow at night is my most genuine secret

I’m lying in bed, a razor in hand
Not that I want to die but just to destroy me
I carve as if it were Halloween in my skin

Thoughts of love tingle in my mind and they creep hastily up my spine
But those tender words settle wedged between my heart and lips
Your picture hidden beneath my pillow at night is my most genuine secret

Emotional distress tears me from bliss to despair
Your name on my arm remains tears me from bliss to despair
Your picture under my pillow, your name under my sleeve
Your picture under my pillow is my most genuine secret
Track Name: Rising Down
Deadlines, stress, job, clubs, friends

I’ll take this remedy to focus, to finish, to succeed
This miniscule form of compressed powder
I’ll take this tonic to be someone

Just this once I’ll slip the pallid circular capsule back in my throat
I’ll wash it down with an old cup of Joe
Just this once I’ll stay up all night
Get this weight off my shoulders minutes before time

Deadlines, stress, job, clubs, friends

I’ll take this remedy to focus, to finish, to succeed
This miniscule form of compressed powder
I’ll take this tonic to be someone

Once again I find my self without options
I take the tablet and crush it with the end of my dwindling stick of lead
The particles align in an arching line as if they were smiling at me
The striped straw from dining room hall aids me in my inhalation

Hours spent, hours with no recollection
Somehow goals are met and semesters fly by
The routine that began as a desperate act
Is now a nightly ritual, differing only by an increase in dosage

These daily happenings leave me expelling the nothingness that my stomach holds
They make me manic, active, and fruitful
They withdraw and only downers recon me sane
Sane enough to do it all again
Track Name: Tornado Daybreak
Spinning round and round
As your feet sweep off the ground
Floating in the sky, the sky

Does anybody know what their purpose is in this world?
Gotta climb the ladder up to the top without getting hurled
Must clean, must work, must eat, must pray
Ignore all desires for fun and play

Spinning round and round
As your feet sweep off the ground
Floating in the sky
Brushing birds as they pass by

Working all day, sleeping all night
Just to survive the earth’s crushing might
Drinking on free days to dissolve it all away
Continuing the pattern in the same way

Spinning round and round
As your feet sweep off the ground
Floating in the sky
Brushing birds as they pass by

Would we rather sleep than live?
Dreaming all day with nothing to give
We’ve gotta find a way to keep our feet planted
May our minds fly high, and maintain this life slanted
Track Name: Sueños de Vida Truncados
Los años transcurren mientras el reflejo va desapareciendo
La niebla en el cristal se va y la imagen se evidencia
Detrás de la bruma los últimos 50 años de vida se revelan
¿Qué he hecho? Y ¿Dónde han ido mis hijos?

Remordimiento y la tristeza envuelven ambiciones insatisfechas
Arrastran todo abajo

En un intento desesperado por recuperar el tiempo perdido
Conduciendo alrededor en un nuevo rojo
Meses en el mar, pérdido en el mundo de chicas jóvenes y bebidas
Finalmente viviendo el sueño

Remordimiento y la tristeza envuelven ambiciones insatisfechas
Arrastran todo abajo

En una desesperación profunda
¿Qué salió mal? ¿Qué voy a hacer ahora?
Track Name: Ocaso de los Ligamentos
Ese marco tuyo que veo en la cama del hospital
No es el que recuerdo de ti

Aquel de mi memoria era un cocinero, un dador de fuerza, un carpintero

Ese marco tuyo que veo en la cama del hospital
No es el que recuerdo de ti

Aquel de mi memoria era un cocinero, un dador de fuerza, un carpintero

Ahora lo único que veo es solo un pobre agujero
Ahora lo único que siento sigue flotando en el tiempo

Que como un grano de arena se desgastó hasta volverse parte del viento
Track Name: El Último Latido
La velocidad de sus movimientos
Decreció con su mente y sus esfuerzos

Veo las arrugas en su piel
Trazadas por todos esos caminos dispersos

Su mente un cofre de vivencias con un candado oxidado
¿Puedo hablar contigo antes de que eternamente seas callado?

En nuestros viajes juntos siempre llevaba caramelos
Y un calendario en miniatura pegado a su tablero

Ahora eres el que asienta la cabeza
En el que los músculos se tensan para formar una sonrisa
En mi capilla cuando fui una niña el padre de mi padre
Con la profunda alegría

Hoy me doy cuenta que los meses del calendario se han consumido
Y el dulce se ha comido su risa y sus colmillos

Ahora eres el que asienta la cabeza
En el que los músculos se tensan para formar una sonrisa

Ya son años desde que bailaba con su esposa
Y me dejaba ganar las carreras acuosas
Años de imaginación
Sueños de ilusión

En mi capilla cuando fui una niña el padre de mi padre
Con la profunda alegría

Completar
Su vida incluía un plan que se debía

Soy la que debe continuar
