1. En Las Encías

Seré como una faca en la garganta
de un amor interrumpido.
Mi voz es un pulmón tan renegrido
como el agua de fregar.
Me suena, en las encías, el destino,
como una seguiriya con bozal.
–Eduardo, llévame a Cantocochino,
que no quiero ver el mar.

Seré un trozo de luna
podrido y resiliente;
el dueño silencioso
de una lengua candente.
Seré el cuerpo presente
que se metió el futuro en el calzón.

Que el aire en la avenida,
por siempre emputecido,
me traiga, en las alforjas,
lo que pudo haber sido.
Que el barro desabrido
se coma, en Berriozar, el corazón
que quede de mí.

Me estampo contra el raudo calendario
a la espera de otra nube;
no salen ni las cuentas del rosario,
si me da por no morir.
La tromba llegará hasta la rodilla,
la tarde que me empieces a llorar;
cuidado con Peter Pan, mi Campanilla,
no lo tengas que velar.

Seré la fosa errante
de un verso maloliente
que no encontró el sentido
a no querer quererte;
que se bebió los ríos,
y fue a desembocar en tu rincón.

Quizá, el poema en celo
que se jugó los dientes,
te muerda como nunca,
ladrando como siempre,
y vuelva del hastío,
quemando su navío en el sillón.

Seré la desvergüenza de un tal Judas,
que treinta veces te niegue –y luego más–;
que se ha metido una vela tan cruda
que no la puede tragar.
Buscaba en las alturas pala y pico;
buscaba la ballena de Jonás.
Me fui a desenterrar a Federico
para nunca regresar.

2. Un Hierro Sin Domar

¡Ah del castillo! Vengo najando;
de los ondunares me estoy escapando.
¿Quién me abre la cancela?
Muy de vez en vez, y muy de cuando en cuando,
saco los ladrillos que he estado randando:
son de la rancia escuela.

Poseo un mirlo blanco que viene por detrás;
que cierra los estancos; que quiere enseñarme a llorar.
Tengo un freno mulero que lo quiero regalar:
conmigo no ha podido y tampoco podrá.

Abre el pestillo y la gatera,
y que le den por culo a tanta primavera;
que ya me está cansando.
Se quedó varada con su cantinela;
con el pelo negro de avivar la hoguera…
Y sé que no es para tanto.

Tenía un rayo verde, pero se me apagó,
y no encontré el pesebre que dio de comer al cantor.
Se me pasó la fiebre y el otoño se pasó;
solo quedó diciembre…, su agonía y yo.

¡Qué más quisiera que vinieras a mi funeral!,
pero me emperro en ser un hierro sin domar.
Que me pusieras un recuerdo en el ojal
y, luego, fuego que recuerde lo que he sido.

Del baratillo estoy colgando:
todo lo que pillo lo voy amasando,
y no me entra en la mollera.
Sigo con el alba de los albañiles;
con la barahúnda de ferrocarriles;
con la naranja entera.

8. El Temblor

Subirá el azogue en cada estancia
si nos ven entrar como elefantes perdidos,
en busca de otro derrotero;
quizá más inocente, menos resentido,
que no se desviva en lo vivido;
que muera buscando un horizonte nuevo.

No comimos nada: contamos veinte.
Con el mercadeo más urgente, danzaron
las uñas de los taberneros,
repletas de planetas, de tabaco y plata;
de la libertad que desbarata los sueños
de aquellos que nunca durmieron.

Tan harto de ternura y de tanta picadura, amor,
ungido, me abracé al rugido que me enamoró.
Después, me encomendé a la bruma
que puebla el último atolón;
que enviuda y amanece, muda, con nuestro temblor.
Volverá el temblor.

De la retirada, no fuimos hijos:
fuimos la palabra y entresijos dorados;
la levantera y el calambre.
Nos queda la certeza de sabernos vivos,
nunca vencedores ni vencidos; regados
por lo que queda del estambre.

¡Qué hartura de tormento –tormenta tierra adentro–, amor!
Me cansa la caricia mansa de su resplandor,
que abrasa aquel renglón torcido
que se vistió de perdedor…
Si yerra, me hablará la tierra, y llegará el temblor.
Volverá el temblor.

1. Historia Calamitatum Ver Ocultar

Even though we know, yeah
We know,
Our time has almost come
We’re all overdue
Can there be a place to call our own?
Can there be a road that takes us home?

We don’t belong (we don’t belong)
We go along (we go along)
We don’t belong
To you now

When it rains it pours
Like summer storms, the skies as grey as leaves
The rivers flood the banks and spill into the streets
But the people laughed and swore that they’d restore
The city piece by piece
And then the clouds gave way as if to agree
When it rains it pours

The mystery unknown now unfolds
The life that we once owned, first bought, then sold
Like passengers on board, we’ve no control
To oceans unexplored
This ship sails through

We don’t belong (don’t belong)
We go along (we go along)
We don’t belong
To you now

When it rains it pours
Like summer storms, the skies as grey as leaves
The rivers flood the banks and spill into the streets
But the people laughed and swore that they’d restore
The city piece by piece
And then the clouds gave way as if to agree
When it rains it pours
It pours
(It pours)

When it rains it pours
When they die we mourn
When it hit, we swore
Now we want not more
Like a saint re-born
Like a rose in a storm
Like a child un-born
A child un-born…

It’s the coin we’re tossing into the well
It’s misfortune that we could not foretell
It’s the dry spell

When it rains it pours
Like summer storms, the skies as grey as leaves
The rivers flood the banks and spill into the streets
But the people laughed and swore that they’d restore
The city piece by piece
And then the clouds gave way as if to agree
When it rains it pours
It pours
When it rains it pour

2. Death Blossoms Ver Ocultar

On dirt like stone
The life paste, the bones of men
That sought to overthrow
Or all that remains

Oh, what they stole
Was innocence, the slate once clean
Has gone as black as coal
Time and time again

Take a look around
The tide is turning upside down
The image of the world
Reflects inside the child’s eye
This world

No self-control
No sense of time
No bleeding hearts, no long good-byes
We grow colder every day

But is it all a show?
A game we play
Society vice queens, so fucking bored
And so cliche

Take a look around
The tide is turning upside down
The image of the world
Reflects inside the child’s eye
We eat our own to stay alive

Slow and steady now
Slow and steady now
Slow and steady now
Slow and steady now
Slow and steady now, it’s time

Take a look around
The tide is turning upside down
The image of the world
Reflects inside the child’s eye
We eat our own to stay alive

Around, take a look around
Watch this world reflect
Inside a child’s eye
We eat our own to stay alive

3. Elective Amnesia Ver Ocultar

We don’t sleep very much
These triggers ache for the touch
Where’s the strength we relied on?
Fear alone, like a crutch
Maybe that’s what keeps us up
All night with the light on

Glowing screens simulate
Lives that no longer take place
Can this be what we’ve become?
Paper thin, overweight
Pills to arouse or sedate
Still we don’t know what we want

We can’t let go
Can’t you see?
To lose control
Is to be…

Finally free!
First a spark
Then a flame
Now a fire
We explode
Into the darkest of nights
Disconnect
Cut the cord
Lines are dead
Now they’ll know
With everything comes a price

And each day we are torn
Between the right and the wrong
Between life and convenience
Why lose sleep? Why complain?
There’s always channels to change
It’s like elective amnesia
As we grow older in this place
Let’s just start over
Let’s erase
What they’ve made!

First a spark
Then a flame
Now a fire
We explode
Into the darkest of nights
Disconnect
Cut the cord
Lines are dead
Now they’ll know
With everything comes a price

It could be minutes away
It could be hours or days
Before the bottom falls out
Before the ground gives way
Into this debt we are born
A debt we try to repay
And yet we blacken the sky
Smoke rising out of the flames
Now they’ll know…

First a spark
Then a flame
Now a fire
We explode
Into the darkest of nights
Disconnect
Cut the cord
Lines are dead
Now they’ll know
With everything comes a price
(First a spark)
(Then a flame)
(Now a fire)
We explode
We explode
With everything comes a price
(Disconnect)
(Cut the cord)
(Lines are dead)
We explode
We explode

4. Grammatizator Ver Ocultar

We celebrate the downfall with ticker tape parades
Oblivious to the fucking mess left lying in the wake
«God grant me the strength to let my children starve»
He whispered to the dripping roof into the candled dark
Contemplate contracts of gold
Just wave your hand and relinquish control
Nine lives await to unfold
We bury ten thousand stories untold
First with insurrection batting eyes from afar
In skybox seats or hotel suites, six figure fucking cars
Contemplate contracts of gold
Just wave your hand and relinquish control
Nine lives await to unfold
Bury the stories

Control the heart
Control the mind
Control the hands

To build what they’ve designed
Lifetimes of silence and apathy
Ensure the prompt demise of our humanity
Contemplate contracts of gold
Just wave your hand and relinquish control
Nine lives await to unfold
We bury ten thousand stories
The stories untold

5. Blind Ver Ocultar

Writer: Trever Keith.
Band: Face to Face.

What if I’m right and you are wrong?
What if you knew it all along?
What if I figured out that I did not belong?
What if it always bothered me?
What if I never did believe?
Would it be wrong if I decided I should leave?

If I pretended I was blind
And struck it from my mind
Would it still be there?
What if I’d do anything to make it seem all right?
It’s all right

What if it’s all inside my head?
What if those words were never said?
Would it be easier if I could just forget?
What if I didn’t run away?
Could it be any other way?
Would it be wrong if I decided I should stay?
Hey, yeah!

If I pretended I was blind
And struck it from my mind
Would it still be there?
What if I’d do anything to make it seem all right?
It’s all right
It’s all right
It’s all right
It’s all right

And now, if I pretended I was blind
And struck it from my mind
Would it still be there?
What if I would do anything to make it seem all right?
It’s all right

Now, what if I’m right and you are wrong?
What if you knew it all along?
What if I figured out that I did not belong?
What if it always bothered me?
What if I never did believe?
Would it be wrong if I decided I should leave?

6. Everchanging (Acoustic) Ver Ocultar

In the face of change
Is when she turned to me and said
«I’m not sure anymore??

And there amidst the waves
And the cloudless skies
That blanket the year before
I watch my life wash ashore

Have you ever been a part of something
That you thought would never end?
And then of course it did

Have you ever felt the weight inside you
Pulling away inside your skin?
And then something had to give

Now the lines are drawn
Is this feeling gone?
The best parts of this have come and gone
And now that is all this is

With the reasons clear
We’ll spend another year
Without direction, full of fear
But now things will be different

There’s nothing simple when it comes to you and I
Always something in this everchanging life
And it probably always will
Now that time is getting harder to come by
The same arguments are always on our mind
We’ve killed this slowly fading light

Now something has kept me here too long and you can’t leave me if I’m already gone

Make the same mistakes we’re always hanging on
Break the promises we’re always leaning on
All this time spent waking up
Mow I keep this line open to get this call from you as you speak the words
That keep me coming back to you now this time it’s all different

Now something has kept me here too long and now I’m gone…

7. Generation Lost Ver Ocultar

Getting trampled under boots of progress
Ignore the pleading of the nameless faces
Now with our backs against the wall
How long till we fall?
Do away with all the underprivileged
their demographic doesn’t fit your image
Turn your blind eye when duty calls
How long till we fall?

(In With The New)
This is something that you can’t ignore
(In With The New)
A simple thing worth fighting for
(In With The New)
cause now they’re tearing down our doors
So she screams out the window,
«I’ve had it up to here»
So sick and tired of wondering
where I’ll be next year…

Caring less about the homeless millions
All the petty problems that go with them
Reap the profit that reaps their lives and
Tell me that it’s fine

Throw them out and call it relocation
Lower-income-housing quick solution
A Generation lost

(In With The New)
This is something that you can’t ignore
(In With The New)
A simple thing worth fighting for
(In With The New)
cause now they’re tearing down our doors
So she screams out the window,
«I’ve had it up to here»
So sick and tired of wondering
where I’ll be next year…

Now in the whirlwind of my life
Is where you presently reside
Can I pretend you don’t exist
Maybe just for ten more minutes?
My hearts been broken into two
and rusted from years of disuse
So will you place upon it your hands
Will you help it beat again?
[2x]

It seems the whole world’s turned on me
(Bound and gagged) in the land of the free
Let’s talk this over, this game is over
In with the new, out with the old
Hearts of the world have grown so cold
This game is over, let’s talk this over

8. Dirt And Roses Ver Ocultar

This city grieves like widows clasping folded flags against their hearts
Raindrops spill like dirt and roses on black coffins in the dark
Not yet corpses, still we rot, oblivious to our decay
Drinking poison, drop by drop, descend to dark

Unless we save our lives
From the coming tide
That seeks to drown us in its waves
But if we sell our soul
For the chance of gold
Then we’ll rue each passing day

And I swear this place once was alive
The streets all pulsed like living veins
Heart was beating cars with blood
The buildings breathe each time they sway

Time of death
Punctuated by the bells
The sky turned red
Then came the rain

Come on let’s save our lives
From the coming tide
That seeks to drown us in its waves
But if we sell our soul
For the chance of gold
Then we’ll rue each passing day.

They drown, they’ll crush you from the top
I’d rather die,
I would rather chase them down
These worlds are crashing forward,
They try to set alight
Build our true fates while they drown

Like fallen soldiers on these fields
We spared our lives
Bodies holed up on the wheels
I swear we tried
I gave up on this godforsaken sight,
And felt it all pass by.

Come on let’s save our lives
From the coming tide
That seeks to drown us in its waves
But if we sell our soul
for the chance of gold
then we’ll rue each passing day.

So save our
(Save our lives)
Our lives,
it’s coming clear,
Yeah it’s been coming clear
(Coming clear)
To me…

We’ll never sell our soul
For the chance of gold
And we’ll live each passing day

9. Ballad Of Hollis Brown Ver Ocultar

Writer: Bob Dylan.
Band: Bob Dylan.

Hollis Brown
He lived on the outside of town
Hollis Brown
He lived on the outside of town
With his wife and five children
And his cabin fallin’ down
You looked for work and money
And you walked a rugged mile
You looked for work and money
And you walked a rugged mile
Your children are so hungry
That they don’t know how to smile
Your baby’s eyes look crazy
They’re a-tuggin’ at your sleeve
Your baby’s eyes look crazy
They’re a-tuggin’ at your sleeve
You walk the floor and wonder why
With every breath you breathe
The rats have got your flour
Bad blood it got your mare
The rats have got your flour
Bad blood it got your mare
If there’s anyone that knows
Is there anyone that cares?
You prayed to the Lord above
Oh please send you a friend
You prayed to the Lord above
Oh please send you a friend
Your empty pockets tell yuh
That you ain’t a-got no friend
Your babies are crying louder
It’s pounding on your brain
Your babies are crying louder
It’s pounding on your brain
Your wife’s screams are stabbin’ you
Like the dirty drivin’ rain
Your grass it is turning black
There’s no water in your well
Your grass is turning black
There’s no water in your well
You spent your last lone dollar
On seven shotgun shells
Way out in the wilderness
A cold coyote calls
Way out in the wilderness
A cold coyote calls
Your eyes fix on the shotgun
That’s hangin’ on the wall
Your brain is a-bleedin’
And your legs can’t seem to stand
Your brain is a-bleedin’
And your legs can’t seem to stand
Your eyes fix on the shotgun
That you’re holdin’ in your hand
There’s seven breezes a-blowin’
All around the cabin door
There’s seven breezes a-blowin’
All around the cabin door
Seven shots ring out
Like the ocean’s pounding roar
There’s seven people dead
On a South Dakota farm
There’s seven people dead
On a South Dakota farm
Somewhere in the distance
There’s seven new people born

10. Sight Unseen Ver Ocultar

Sight unseen, the road stretched out before me.
Suffocate – the water rising slowly.
Step in time, agree to share this pain.
Live or die now, but still we suffer just the same!

I took my share and then told her, «I don’t want more»
We spend our lives, then ask you, what was this for,
We gave our time and still we came up short.

Cause this is all I’ve got, and I’ve nothing more.
We save the worst excuse, but the best in store.
Maybe now, we’ll finally even the score.
Are you counting? – do you even wanna know?

Cause unknown, the streets are never-ending.
Sinking down, with nothing to defend me.
Lie and wait, for some small show of mercy.
Questions change – but the answers always stay the same!

I took my share and then told her, «I don’t want more»
I fell so low, I touched the oceans floor.
But what the hell are we searching for?!

Cause this is all I’ve got, and I’ve nothing more.
We save the worst excuse, but the best in store.
Maybe now, we’ll finally even the score.
Are you counting? – do you even wanna know?

She lies awake now, and cried a thousand rivers.
The circumstance here, has led this child astray.
This candle’s fading, the dim light slowly withers.
You ask for guidance, but I just look away…

I have nothing more to say.

So let me down, because they never believed in you.
Seal this crown, and still we can see right through.

Cause this is all I’ve got, and I’ve nothing more.
We save the worst excuse, but the best in store.
Maybe now we’ll finally even the score.
Cause this is all I’ve got.
And now there’s nothing.

11. Lanterns Ver Ocultar

This night will fall like any other
Daylight subsides and shadows crawl
Out from under black corners
Hiding something
Stirs, all so restless
Cracked windows open wide
Dead-bolt turns doors creak open
With stars and moonlight there to guide

Come raise your lantern to the sky
Can we illuminate this night?
We’ll dance like heathens round a flame
While the world sleeps we are awake

The black brook calls
It sings a chorus
While the gathering swells
The flames grow tall
Right before us
As drums keep pounding
And the masses now are fusing
Bodies pressed and tangled
As we revel in confusion
Our inhibitions thrown into the fire

Come raise your lantern to the sky
Can we illuminate this night?
We’ll dance like heathens round a flame
While the world sleeps we are awake

Here in the dark we are safe from the judgement
Now arm in arm locked tight so no one gets in
The heaven-sent say, «Child, you are hell-bent.»
But hell is not where we’re going
Hell’s where we’ve been

Come raise your lantern to the sky
And let’s illuminate this night
We’ll dance like heathens round the flame
And while the world sleeps we are awake

Raise your lantern to the sky
And let’s illuminate this night
We’ll dance like heathens around the flames
And while the world sleeps we are awake
We are awake
(raise your lantern to the sky)
We are awake
We are awake
(now raise your lantern to the sky)
We are awake
Yeah we are awake

12. Making Christmas Ver Ocultar

Writer: Danny Elfman.
Band: Danny Elfman.

This time, this time
Making Christmas
Making Christmas
Making Christmas, making Christmas
Is so fine

It’s ours this time
And won’t the children be surprised
It’s ours this time
Making Christmas
Making Christmas
Making Christmas

Time to give them something fun
They’ll talk about for years to come
Let’s have a cheer from everyone
It’s time to party
Making Christmas, making Christmas

Snakes and mice get wrapped up so nice
With spider legs and pretty bows
It’s ours this time
All together, that and this
With all our tricks we’re
Making Christmastime

Here comes jack
I don’t believe what’s happening to me
My hopes, my dreams, my fantasies
Hee, hee, hee, hee
Won’t they be impressed, I am a genius
See how I transformed this old rat
Into a most delightful hat

Hmm, my compliments from me to you
On this your most intriguing hat
Consider though this substitute
A bat in place of this old rat
Huh! No, no, no, now that’s all wrong
This thing will never make a present
It’s been dead now for much too long
Try something fresher, something pleasant
Try again, don’t give up

All together, that and this
With all our tricks we’re making Christmastime…

This time, this time
Making Christmas, making Christmas
La, la, la
It’s almost here
And we can’t wait
So ring the bells and celebrate

Cause when the full moon starts to climb
We’ll all sing out
It’s Christmastime
Hee, hee, hee

13. Join The Ranks Ver Ocultar

With your eyes
Glazed and half-smiling
Explain to me the details
Of your god-given right

You point your finger
In my face but
You can’t remember what you
Did last night

It’s all fun and games ‘til
You try to justify
It’s all well and done ‘til
You question the choices in your life

Join!
All the millions
Of victims who prescribe
To this mediocre life

And all these years
Have been lost
Looking for something
That you’ll never find!

It’s all fun and games ‘til
You try to justify
It’s all well and done ‘til
You question the choices in your life

In your life…
In your life!

It’s all fun and games ‘til
You try to justify
It’s all well and done ‘til
You question the choices in your life

14. Built To Last Ver Ocultar

Writers: Louis Koller, Pete Koller, Arman Majidi, Craig Setari.
Band: Sick Of It All.

Invest time, invest life
Invest it all, reinvent yourself
Before you know it
Your essence is renewed with something fresh
Your will, your way
Will earn respect in your day
Let the glory sharpened knife
Carve the future of your life

Let’s not praise the past, just a fact
Built to last
Old school or the new
Doesn’t mean a thing if your heart’s not true
Greedy ones faded fast, we’re here
Built to last
For the fun, not a fad
The love and the truth so powerful

Work out the snags of the past
Work out the snags that won’t last
Mistakes have finished my brothers
Mistakes will guide all the others
Your will, your way
Might shape a better day
Eradicate the stagnancy
Eradicate it like disease

Let’s not praise the past, just a fact
Built to last
Old school or the new
Doesn’t mean shit if your heart ain’t true
Greedy ones faded fast, we’re here
Built to last
For the fun, not a fad
The love and the truth so powerful
The love and the truth so powerful

As we’ve seen around the world
We won’t go away
Cause we’ll always feel this way
We’re here to stay
And our impact will be felt
We won’t go away
If we feel it, if we feel it
We’re here to stay

15. Voice Of Dissent Ver Ocultar

Here alone we wander and we roam
We cut our teeth in city streets and gutters we call home

Await the day the clouds will part
Deliver words we know by heart

Raise your fucking voice
Or be a face in the crowd
Isn’t that what it’s all about?

So tempt me not with the life you have bought
Our keep is earned in the change that we sought

Explain away the tangled truth
Accuse away but without proof

Raise your fucking voice
Or be a face in the crowd
Isn’t that what it’s all about?

Boots on the ground, aim tried and true
Bells toll the sound; impending doom

In our respite our numbers grew
Now it’s time to

Raise your fucking voice
Or be a face in the crowd
Isn’t that what it’s all about?

16. Little Boxes Ver Ocultar

Writer: Malvina Reynolds.
Band: Pete Seeger.

Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes made of ticky-tacky,
Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes, all the same.
There’s a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one
They’re all made out of ticky-tacky,
And they all look just the same.

And the people in houses
who went to the university,
where they were put in boxes,
And they all came out the same.
There’s doctors and lawyers
And business executives,
They’re all made out of ticky-tacky
And they all look just the same.

And they all play on the golf-course,
And drink their Martini dry,
And they all have pretty children,
And the children go to school.
And the children go to summer camp
And then to the university,
They all get put in boxes
And they all come out the same.

And the boys go into business,
And marry, raise a family,
And they all get put in boxes,
Little boxes, all the same.
Yeah a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one
And they’re all made out of ticky-tacky
And they all look just the same.

17. Give It All (Rock Against Bush version) Ver Ocultar

Break through the undertow, your hands I can’t seem to find
Pollution burns my tongue, cough words I can’t speak so I

Stop my struggling, then I float to the surface
Fill my lungs with air, then let it out

I give it all, now there’s a reason why I sing
So give it all, and it’s these reasons that belong to me

Rock bottoms where we live, and still we dig these trenches
To bury ourselves in them, backs breaking under tension

For far too long these voices, muffled by distances
It’s time to come to our senses, up from the dirt

We give it all, now there’s a reason why I sing
So give it all, and it’s these reasons that belong to me

Breathe (breathe), the air we give (give), the life we live (live), our pulses racing distances
(breathe) so wet my tongue (give), break into song (live), through seas of competition

So please believe your eyes, a sacrifice
Is not what we had in our minds
I’m coming home tonight, home tonight

We give it all, now there’s a reason why I sing
So give it all, and it’s these reasons that belong to me

Today I offer all myself to this I’m living for my dying wish
I give it all, now there’s a reason, there’s a reason, to give it all

18. Minor Threat Ver Ocultar

Writers: Brian Baker, Ian MacKaye, Jeffrey Nelson, Lyle Preslar.
Band: Minor Threat.

We’re not the first, I hope we’re not the last
‘Cause I know we’re all ready for that adult crash
The time is so little, the time belongs to us
Why is everybody in such a fucking rush?

Make do with what you have
Take what you can get
Pay no mind to us
We’re just a minor threat

We’re just a minor threat

Early to finish, I was late to start
I might be an adult, but I’m a minor at heart
Go to college, be a man, what’s the fucking deal?
It’s now how old I am, it’s how old I feel

Take your time
Try no to forget
We never will
We’re just a minor threat

We’re just a minor threat

19. Obstructed View Ver Ocultar

To all you people standing proud
Thinking you know what I’m about
I think you can fuck yourself
From your safe distance in this crowd
That’s when your voice becomes so loud
Still trying to keep us down

Walk one mile in shoes I never asked to fill
But still I press on…

I slipped, I fell, then I lost everything
My hope, my faith, in what the future brings
In hopes of pushing past the tie that brings us down
We sing together now.

Give me one reason to look you in the eye
Tell me exactly why it is that you think you are worth my time

I slipped, I fell, then I lost everything
My hope, my faith, in what the future brings
In hopes of pushing past the tie that brings us down
We sing together now.

To all the ones that shake my hand
Then talk your shit behind my back
To those who claim they understand
But never heard a word I said
In spite of you I am still here
This vision has never been more clear
As we sing together now.

I slipped, I fell, then I lost everything
My hope, my faith, in what the future brings
In hopes of pushing past the tie that brings us down
We sing together now.

20. But Tonight We Dance Ver Ocultar

Breathe deep and easy, swallow this pride.
Stare at my shaking hands through bone-dry, blood shot eyes.
Clock strip the hours, I count the miles.
Will you be there waiting, awake until sunrise.

I have traveled in darkness, for what seems like days,
I, come from the sinkholes, collapsed under this weight.
I know not your sorrow, but I know mine,
So say you’ll stay and dance with me tonight.

In the glow of twilight, our world is finally calm.
I felt it complete me, when the stars give way to dawn.
A language universal, but I speak not its tongue.
Is this a night that spans forever, or a dawn that never comes.

I have traveled in darkness, for what seems like days,
I, come from the sinkholes, collapsed under this weight.
I know not your sorrow, but I know mine,
So say you’ll stay and dance with me tonight.

Tomorrow we might wake in servitude and silence
I will give you everything if only you would have me
Tomorrow we will sweat and toil,
Our hands will quiver caked with soil,
Tomorrow we’ll give it one last chance,
But tonight we dance,
But tonight we dance!

And for this, I travel in darkness, for what seems like days,
I, come from the sinkholes, collapsed under this weight.
I know not your sorrow, but I know mine,
Just say you’ll stay and dance with me tonight.

21. Nervous Breakdown Ver Ocultar

Writer: Greg Ginn.
Band: Black Flag.

I’m about to have a nervous breakdown
My head really hurts
And if I don’t find a way out of here
I’m gonna go berserk cause
I’m crazy and I’m hurt
Head on my shoulders
It’s going… berserk

I hear the same old talk talk talk
The same old lines
Don’t grill me that today
Yeah If you know what’s good for you you’ll get out of my way
Cause I’m crazy and I’m hurt
Head on my shoulders
Is going… berserk

I won’t apologize
For acting outta line
You see the way I am
You leave any time you can cause
I’m crazy and I’m hurt
Head on my shoulders
Is going… berserk

Crazy! Crazy! Crazy! Crazy!
I don’t care what you fuckin’ do
I don’t care what you fuckin’ say
I’m so sick of everything I just want to… die!

22. Gethsemane Ver Ocultar

(Gethsemane!)

It was the perfect night
Then you had to go and ruin it with a kiss now
I’m trapped inside here
The innocence we held once so carelessly
Has been suffocated in this breathless moment

[Chorus:]
Believe in me and I will believe in you
You’re asking of me everything
So I’ll give it all to you

With arms raised to the stars begging them to listen
With legs littered with scars cut from these olive branches
Now, point of return now crossed and our hands left shaking
Tonight we give in to temptation

[Chorus:]
Believe in me and I will believe in you
You’re asking of me everything
So I’ll give it all to you

Someone stop my mind from screaming
It’s so loud I can’t hear myself think
Life, Death, Religion, Survival
It makes no sense
Never try to tell me that I’m a coincidence

[Chorus:]
Believe in me and I will believe in you
You’re asking of me everything
So I’ll give it all to you

And I don’t
Believe in you
Never safe from you [?]
Believe in me
You’re asking of me everything
So I’ll give it all to you

And if I never have you, then I can never lose you
Now, everything here is a lie
Where is the truth?
Where is the fucking truth?

23. Boy’s No Good Ver Ocultar

Writers: Ari Katz, Dan Yemin, David Palaitis, Pete Martin, Scott Golley.
Band: Lifetime.

Tune the electric bass to the 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th string.
The boy’s no good.
Yeah, he’s a fuckin’ hood.
He won’t treat you like he should.
I heard he’s making time with this friend of mine.
I heard he’s talking trash.
I saw that kid last night.
He’s starting fights.
He’s got that nervous twitching.
He’s just not the kid for you.
He’s all dressed up.
He’s got nothing to do, but he’s got something.
He’s cool as anything, but he’s not good.
That boy’s a fucking creep.

The boy’s no good.
Yeah, he’s a hood.
He won’t treat you like he should.
I said the boy’s no good.
He’s a hood.
He won’t treat you like I would.
I said the boy’s no good.
Listen to what I say.
The boy’s no good.
He’ll fuck you anyway.
The boy’s no good.

The boy’s no fuckin’ good.

24. Any Way You Want It Ver Ocultar

Writers: Steve Perry, Neal Schon.
Band: Journey.

Anyway you want it
That’s the way you need it
Anyway you want it

She loves to dance
She loves to sing
She does everything
She loves to move
She loves to groove
She loves the lovin’ things

All night
All night
Oh every night
So hold tight
Hold tight
Oh baby hold tight

She said
Anyway you want it
That’s the way you need it
Anyway you want it
Anyway you want it
That’s the way you need it
Anyway you want it

I was alone
I never knew
What good love could do
Then we touched
And we sang
About the lovin’ things

All night
All night
Oh every night
So hold tight
Hold tight
Oh baby hold tight

She said
Anyway you want it
That’s the way you need it
Anyway you want it
Anyway you want it
That’s the way you need it
Anyway you want it

25. Sliver Ver Ocultar

Writer: Kurt Cobain.
Band: Nirvana.

Mom and dad went to a show
They dropped me off at grandpa Joe’s
I kicked and screamed
Said «Please, don’t go»

Grandpa take me home

Had to eat my dinner there
Mashed potatos and stuff like that
I couldn’t chew my meat too good

Grandpa take me home

Said «Why don’t you stop your crying
Go outside and ride your bike?»
That’s what I did
I killed my toe

Grandma take me home

After dinner, I had ice cream
I fell asleep and watched TV
I woke up in my mother’s arms

Grandpa take me home, never take me home
Grandpa take me home
I wanna be alone

26. The Ghost of Tom Joad Ver Ocultar

Writer: Bruce Springsteen.
Band: Bruce Springsteen.

Men walkin’ ‘long the railroad tracks
Goin’ some place there’s no goin’ back
Highway patrol choppers comin’ up over the ridge
Hot soup on a campfire under the bridge
Shelter line stretchin’ ‘round the corner
Welcome to the new world order
Families sleepin’ in their cars in the Southwest
No home, no job, no peace, no rest

Well the highway is alive tonight
Where it’s headed nobody knows
I’m sittin’ down here in the campfire light
Searchin’ for the ghost of Tom Joad

He pulls a prayer book out of his sleeping bag
Preacher lights up a butt and takes a drag
Waitin’ for when the last shall be first and the first shall be last
In a cardboard box ‘neath the underpass
Got a one-way ticket to the promised land
You got a hole in your belly and gun in your hand
Sleeping on a pillow of solid rock
Bathin’ in the city aqueduct

Well the highway is alive tonight
Where it’s headed everybody knows
I’m sittin’ down here in the campfire light
Waitin’ on the ghost of Tom Joad

Tom said «Mom, wherever there’s a cop beatin’ a guy
Wherever a hungry newborn baby cries
Where there’s a fight ‘gainst the blood and hatred in the air
Look for me Mom I’ll be there
Wherever there’s somebody fightin’ for a place to stand
Or decent job or a helpin’ hand
Wherever somebody’s strugglin’ to be free
Look in your eyes Mom you’ll see me»

Well the highway is alive tonight
Where it’s headed everybody knows
I’m sittin’ down here in the campfire light
With the ghost of old Tom Joad

Well the highway is alive tonight
Where it’s headed everybody knows
I’m sittin’ down here in the campfire light
With the ghost of old Tom Joad
With the ghost of old Tom Joad
With the ghost of old Tom Joad

1. The Great Die-Off Ver Ocultar

There’s a fire on the borders and it’s burning down the walls you built high
And there’s a steady stream of anger and it’s spilling from the coasts
A tidal wave

And the words say we reap what we sow
So where I bury you I’ll build my home
In line to reclaim but we’re sick of the wait

We want it all and we want it now
Tonight I watched your fires burn out
The cold dead hands we pried these guns from are yours
We want it all and we want it now
A tide is coming to drown you out
We make ourselves at home while your body’s still warm

Tradition tethers us to rituals and
Are we all just clocks on wrong times?
And something triggers each and every time I hear you say
«God bless this place»

But your numbers are dwindling now
Though endangered we’ll still hunt you down
With heads on a stake long may you reign

We want it all and we want it now
Tonight I watched your fires burn out
The cold dead hands we pried these guns from are yours
We want it all and we want it now
A tide is coming to drown you out
We make ourselves at home while your body’s still warm

And there’s a fire on the borders and it’s burning down the walls you built high
And there’s a steady stream of anger and it’s spilling from the coasts
A tidal wave

We want the motherfucking world and we want it now
Tonight I watched your fires burn out
The cold dead hands we pried these guns from are yours

No I don’t want to wait
I know a better way
So step aside, come on or better yet just go away
Our chance has finally come
There might not be another one now
No we’re not gonna wait
We want it now
Yeah we’re dousing the flames
We want it now

2. I Don’t Want To Be Here Anymore Ver Ocultar

On pins and needles we are waiting for the fall
We count the days scratching lines on the wall
Wait in the wings at someone’s beck and call

No longer recognize the place that I call home
No longer recognize this face as my own
Somewhere, this fate, I lost control

We backed down
We took no for answers far too long
We felt those walls close around

I don’t want to be here anymore
I don’t want to be here anymore

I don’t want to be here anymore (be here anymore)
I know there’s nothing left worth staying for
Your paradise is something I’ve endured
See I don’t think I can fight this anymore (fight this anymore)
I’m listening with one foot out the door
And something has to die to be reborn
I don’t want to be here anymore

On hand and foot we answered every single call
And weathered every day like passing storms
But when they break, we will all be gone

Won’t back down
Won’t take no for answers anymore
These walls close, we pace back and forth

I don’t want to be here anymore (be here anymore)
I know there’s nothing left worth staying for
Your paradise is something I’ve endured
See I don’t think I can fight this anymore (fight this anymore)
I’m listening with one foot out the door
But something has to die to be reborn
I don’t want to be here anymore

The point where we break gets closer everyday
But where do we go?
But where do we go?

I don’t want to be here anymore
I don’t want to be here anymore

I don’t want to be here anymore (be here anymore)
I know there’s nothing left worth staying for
Your paradise is something I’ve endured
See I don’t think I can fight this anymore (fight this anymore)
I’m listening with one foot out the door
But something has to die to be reborn
I don’t want to be here anymore

(We need a better way)
(We need to let go)

Anymore

(We need a better way)
(We need to let go)
(We need a better way)

3. Tragedy + Time Ver Ocultar

On the edges of the sharpest knives
In the middle of the darkest nights
Always knew that I would find you here
In a puddle of the bravest tears

I’ve seen enough to know it’s lonely where you are
Above the crowd
Feet dangling from a rooftop (a rooftop)
She waits from ledges for a voice to talk her down

And nothing matters but the pain when you’re alone
The never-ending nights when you’re awake
When you’re praying that tomorrow it’s okay

There will be a time to crack another smile
Maybe not today or for awhile
But we’re holding on to laugh again some day
To laugh again some day

All that matters is the time we had
Doesn’t matter how it all went bad
Never wonder what it might be like
Shut the door, say goodbye

When faced with tragedy
We come alive or come undone

So don’t hold back, let it shape you like an ocean
Even the deepest scars in time will fade

Nothing matters but the pain when you’re alone
Never-ending nights when you’re awake
When you’re praying that tomorrow it’s okay
There will be a time to crack another smile
Maybe not today or for awhile
But we’re holding on to laugh again some day
Yeah, we’re holding on to laugh again some day

And sometimes you have to go back
To know just where you have been
But we’re old enough to know that
What has been, will be again and again

And the bravest of faces
Are the ones where we fake it
In the roles that we play

Nothing matters when the pain is all but gone
When you are finally awake
Despite the overwhelming odds, tomorrow came

And when they see you crack a smile
And you decide to stay a while
You’ll be ready then, to laugh again

Nothing matters but the pain
(We are tragedy, yeah, we are sympathy)
Nothing matters but the pain
You see what you want to see

Nothing matters but the pain
(We are misery, and distant memories)
Nothing matters but the pain
We all learned to laugh again
Yeah, we all learned to laugh again
We all learned to laugh again

4. The Black Market Ver Ocultar

A currency of heartache and sorrow
The air we breathe is stale with mold
To shadows we are slaves digging deeper every day
But emptiness is growing so old

Headlamps light the tunnels we wander
They shimmer and they dance on the walls
We’re lost inside these caves as the chances of escape
Grow slimmer ‘til there’s no chance at all

This ink, it travels from the page
Up my hand and to my veins

Choking on those stories I’ve told
If there are words here left to say
I just want to let you know

I’m falling on my knees right now
I’m covered in the mess I made
These colors used to wash right out
But now they are a part of me
And I’ve been searching for a remedy
When all along it’s been in front of me
I need you here, I need you now
Right now

We traffic in the blackest of markets
Trade misery like diamonds and gold
The angst that we exchange for applause or petty praise
Is finally now taking its toll

But there’s a world above the ground
A life that we can lead
We’re washing off the dirt from our clothes
I don’t want to live without
I just wanna let you know

I’m falling on my knees right now
I’m covered in the mess I made
These colors used to wash right out
But now they are a part of me
And I’ve been searching for a remedy
When all along it’s been in front of me

I need you here, I need you now
Right now
Right now

(Black stains) they mark me like a letter
(Won’t fade) cracking under the pressure
(Black stains) nothing stays gold

There’s a world above the ground
A life that we can lead
But we’re lost deep down in these holes
And I’ve seen the way out
Now I just want to let you know

I’m falling on my knees right now (black stains)
I’m covered in the mess I made (won’t fade)
These colors used to wash right out (black stains)
But now they are a part of me
And I’ve been searching for a remedy
When all along it’s been in front of me
Your voice it washes the stains away
(Wash the stains away)
Woo oh oh oh
(Wash the stains away)

5. The Eco-Terrorist In Me Ver Ocultar

Spray paint the cameras, jam the frequency,

What you kill, just comes alive in me,
Hoods and bandanas make not an enemy,
You can’t define us, any way you please!

You make the rules, we make the calls
My conscience clean, my sins absolved

Because I found God (hey!)
In the sound of your factories burning down,
Now I sleep so sound…

When it all comes down, will you say you did everything you could?
When it all comes down, can you say that you never gave up?
Were you standing by to watch it fall away?
Will you hold on or let it go?

Instead of doing what’s right, they built higher walls
Where we can’t shed a light on true criminals
When business and suffering is one and the same
When laws fail the people they turn to the flame

I found love (love!)
I found life (life!)
As a thorn stuck in your side,
And you wonder why…

When it all comes down, will you say you did everything you could?
When it all comes down, can you say that you never gave up?
Were you standing by to watch it fall away?

Will you hold on? (Will you hold on?)
Did you hold on or just let it fall?
Did you let it fall?

When it all comes down, will you say you did everything you could?
When it all comes down, can you say that you never gave up?
When it all comes down, will you say you did everything you could?

When it all comes down,
When it all comes down…

When the lights all blow out, and roadblocks blow up,
When you sleep to the sound of alarms going off
When it all comes down, will you say you did everything you could?

6. Sudden Life Ver Ocultar

Floating in the clouds, I’m giving up the fight
A voice is calling out, I’m walking into the light

We used to race a thousand miles a day so fast
Feet they barely even touched the ground
We used to fly to places out beyond our own little world
The fury and the sound

I saw it flicker like a television set
Bright flashes of a warning sign
Flipping channels in a world gone static
Eroding away line by the fading line

Under water for years we found, till we started to swim than drown
The current takes us, now we’re walking into the light

Are you dying all your life? (Walking into the light)
(Walking into the light)
Broken, beat and tired out (Walking into the light)
You want to live but don’t know how (Walking into the light)
Diagnosis: sudden life (Walking into the light)
(Walking into the light)
Can no one revive me now?
Feels like I’m walking into the light

Woke up floating on a wave of golden sound
Tunnel vision and a great beyond
Heart beating like a rhythm slowing down
And it’s gone, an echo of a song

Flat line and a closing bell
Whisper a warm farewell
The flames are beckoning
As we’re walking into the light

Are you dying all your life? (Walking into the light)
(Walking into the light)
Broken, beat and tired out (Walking into the light)
You want to love but don’t know how (Walking into the light)
Diagnosis: sudden life (Walking into the light)
(Walking into the light)
Can no one revive me now?
Feels like I’m walking into the light

Don’t suppose that you know the way?
Don’t suppose that you care?
I see lights up ahead and hear choirs of angels ring in my ears
But you know that, had you a choice, you would go back and do it again
We all have unfinished business to tend

So no I won’t go gentle
Into the good night
You can keep your candle
I’m walking away from the light
Yeah I’m walking away from the light
I’m walking away from the light
I’m walking away from the light
I’m walking away from the light

Diagnosis: sudden life (Walking away from the light)
(Walking away from the light)
I woke up my heart racing, I’m (Walking away from the light)
At a loss explaining why (Walking away from the light)
Are you dying all your life? (Walking away from the light)
(Walking away from the lightt)
Then put your darkest days behind
Let life flash right before your eyes (Walking away from the light)
And for very the first time,
It feels like I’m walking away from the light

7. A Beautiful Indifference Ver Ocultar

There’s a struggle coming, but to conquer, first they must divide.
The machines keep humming night and day.
How are we so unaware,
Why are you not afraid?

Protests are drumming while you turn your nose and roll your eyes,
Knee-jerk reactions so ingrained.
Judging from an arm chair.

Cause there is hate and there is love and there is loss,
But there is light and there is dark, then there is us.
And whether this world burns, is none of your concern,
Caught up in a ticker-tape parade.

I have learned to stand up and just to walk away,
Sometimes the cold hearts aren’t worth the love or the hate.
Learn to let go, learn to walk away.
Up from the shadows I’m seduced by the light of the flame,
But this time I’m here to stay.

Gunpowder residue, bright lights and turpentine,
True colors shining through, as we are stripped of our exteriors.

Now, cause there is hate and there is love and there is loss,
But there is right and there is wrong, then there is us.
We’re falling until

We learn to stand up and just to walk away,
Sometimes the cold hearts aren’t worth the love or the hate.
Learn to let go, learn to walk away.
Up from the shadows I’m seduced by the light of the flame,
But this time I’m here to stay.

Feet first into the quicksand, every day we are surrendering,
Never straying from the game plan.
I keep hoping you will take my hand and stand up.

The water’s overflowing, the walls are breaking,
But I know where I’m going, that we can make it.
And there’s a light still glowing and I will chase it.
And I’ve been lost before and I have been led astray,

But this time I’m here to stay.

8. Methadone Ver Ocultar

Love like a needle full of methadone
Potent but not real, left you wanting more

Lipstick track marks bleeding wet
Like Montagues and Capulets
For us child the stars refuse to shine
Oh why for us, child, do the stars refuse to shine?

Somewhere strung out on the lam
We wound up back here again
Like unstable chemicals
Combining only to explode

What will it take for you to notice?
I am a heart on fire, and all the world’s a fuse
So don’t get close
Trouble and the worth
Am I better off on my own?

Contaminated, quarantined then left alone
A shipment refused, address unknown
A damaged goods they soon forget
The choking dust that we got left
For us all, the stars refuse to shine

Tap the vein and light the match
We burn like stars before the crash
But for you there’s still a chance
Just let go

What will it take for you to notice?
I am a heart on fire, and all the world’s a fuse
So don’t get close
Trouble and the worth
I’m better off on my own
On my own

Now there’s nowhere to run
And yeah there’s nowhere to hide
There’s nothing under the sun
We haven’t already tried

What will it take for you to notice?
I am a hand grenade, pin already pulled so don’t let go
As we chase the sun my shadow slows us down
And without me along, you’re better off and I know
You’re better off and I know
And I know

9. Zero Visibility Ver Ocultar

Settling in here for the long haul
Can’t hide forever is what they say
In with the wind, out with a bang
Meanwhile nothing has changed

With each word slowly uttered
A storm brews in her eyes
A missed shot at the buzzard
Time, whether wasted
Or well-spent, is still time

We are not brave, we are not wise
We stand at the end of the longest lines
But we stand here all together
We have been damned, we have survived
We came back to homes we don’t recognize
But we return here all together

Moments of clarity here are short-lived
Bled through the bandages again
When is a lie no longer white
But black as a day without sun

Passed out in a gutter
Woke up in your arms
Nursed back and recovered
The same touch that heals me
Left a scar

We are not brave, we are not wise
We stand at the end of the longest lines
But we stand here all together
We have been damned, we have survived
We came back to homes we don’t recognize
But we return here all together

And the world works in ways that I never have claimed to know
We got out in front of the weather but it followed
The view from here isn’t better but it’s all we know
It’s all we know

We are not brave, we are not wise
We stand at the edge of the border lines
But we stand here all together
We have been damned, we have survived
Who we’ve become you won’t recognize
But we became them all together
All together

10. Awake Too Long Ver Ocultar

I watched the rise and the fall of the common man
I lived to see your steps walk back
I watched the walls all crash down, crumbling
Just to be rebuilt while we slept

We threw swords in the oceans wide and deep
We promise peace but the peace won’t last
‘Cause now we forge new blades so nervously
Waiting for this harmony to pass

I stand guard and roam
Like a sentinel
I see it all

I’ve been awake too long
Wish there was something that could close my eyes
To all that I see
Awake too long
It would be easier to fall asleep

We fell in love but the love kept running out
We follow roads but the roads all end
We lived and learned, and learned to live without
Falling from the ladders we ascend

I’ve seen the eyes of the widows left behind
I’ve seen the child of a fallen man
And never once did our leaders apologize
For battles they began

I can’t look away or pretend not to see
And so I say

I’ve been awake too long
Wish there was something that could close my eyes
To all that I see
Awake too long
It would be easier to fall asleep

Asleep

Maybe I would dream if I could sleep
Maybe I’d see what this could be
Instead of what it is
And is there bliss in ignorance?
Is this our demise we can’t prevent?
Should we fall asleep?

I’ve been awake too long
I’ve been awake too long
I’ve been awake too long
I’ve been awake too long

(I’ve been awake too long) And like constant vigils we all
(I’ve been awake too long) Carry eternal flames
(I’ve been awake too long) I’m saturate pains to an open heart
(I’ve been awake too long) But through it all
Every single cut I’ve been awake

11. People Live Here Ver Ocultar

My God is better than yours
And the walls of my house are so thick
I hear nothing at all

I followed you out in the storm
But it carried you off
And I burned every picture of yours
Was that not enough?

My gun is bigger than yours
So let’s arm the masses
And see what the bastards do then
Walking tall once set us apart
Now we’re down on all fours
Do you cry my name in the dark
Like I do yours?

These storms are getting stronger now
Trusses all bend and sway
Lightning hits, the power goes out in the fray
As the waves crash high
And the shoreline disappears
I will scream to the sky
«Hey, people live here.»

My dreams are not unlike yours
They long for the safety
And break like a glass chandelier
But there’s laughter and oh there is love
Just past the edge of our fears
And there’s chaos when push comes to shove
But it’s music to my ears

May you be in Heaven before the Devil knows you’re dead
May these winds be always at your back

‘Cause when we’re all just ghosts
And the madness overtakes us
We will look at the ashes
And say, «People lived here.»

From the penthouse to the holy martyr
Sea to shining sea
From the coffins full of kindergarteners
Is this what you call free?
From the hate that drips from all your crosses
Are your hands so clean?

There’s a wildfire and it’s spreading far
From sea to shining sea

When we’re all just ghosts
And the madness overtakes us
I will scream to the sky, yeah I’ll scream to the sky
Yeah I’ll scream to the sky
«Hey, people live here.»

12. Bridges Ver Ocultar

In a world of uncertainty
The night sky told us all to be patient
But when the ground started shaking
I wondered for how long?

But there’s a place that I’d rather be
And there a voice deep inside of me
Saying the progress we are making
Is not progress at all

Into a world of promises, whoa
Is where we let ourselves be led

We built the bridges
We now sleep under
We framed the doorways
But may not pass through
The very same roads
That we now wander
The ones you pass us by on
We paved with our bare hands
Paved with our bare hands

A black cloud hovers over me
But without all this guilt I feel naked
Something about the way it
Wraps it’s arms around

White snow covers everything
An angel watches over me praying
She asks me for a favor
«Catch me if I fall»
A rush of blood straight to the head
I wonder what this could have been

We built the bridges
We now sleep under
We framed the doorways
But may not pass through
The very same roads
That we now wander
The roads you pass us by on
We paved with our bare hands
Paved with our bare hands
Hey!

No I never meant to hurt you
No I never meant to do you wrong
I stood waiting but
A man said move along

We laid the tracks down
But now they’ve rotted
And like a runaway train
We brace for the crash
We were in love once
Have you forgotten?
And like a runaway train
Bearing down upon a gap

We built the bridges (brace for the crash)
(Built from their hypocrisy)
We built the bridges (brace for the crash)
(Built from their hypocrisy)
We built the bridges (brace for the crash)
(Built from their hypocrisy)
We built the bridges (brace for the crash)
And underneath their
Shadows we now live

1. Wolves Ver Ocultar

Light all the torches and wake up the King
The smoke you’ve ignored is a flame you can’t contain
We circle the walls and claw at the dirt
We growl from our guts and howl until it hurts

I told her «come with me
And I can take you from this place now
Somewhere these roads don’t go
A place that we can start again»

I grabbed her hand and pulled her close
She looked at me and said

«Hey I don’t even know your name
But I am ready to explode
Like a tiger in a circus
Cracking whips are all I know
I’m searching for a sense of purpose»

We are the wolves at the gate
Our numbers growing every day, yeah
You can’t fight us all, no
No, you can’t fight

We are the wolves at the wall
We break in like a waterfall, yeah
You can’t fight us all, no
You can’t fight

The water is breaching the walls of the dam
Trampling dreams in a rush to higher land

Are you ready to explode
Like a tiger in a circus?
This cage is all I’ve ever known
But now you’ve given me a purpose

We are the wolves at the gate
Our numbers growing every day, yeah
You can’t fight us all, no
You can’t fight
We are the wolves at the wall
We break in like a waterfall, yeah
You can’t fight us all, no
And we are not going away

Roaming in numbers and chasing the scent
Circling in for the kill
And you are the winter, the long discontent
We won’t stop till we’ve had our fill

(We are the wolves)
Roaming in numbers and chasing the scent
(We are the wolves)
Circling in for the kill
(We are the wolves)
And you are the winter, the long discontent
(We are the wolves)

We won’t stop till we’ve had our fill
We are the wolves…

2. House On Fire Ver Ocultar

I can see the storms in her eyes now
I’m falling overboard in the waves
In over my head and she’s a high tide
That keeps pushing me away
I thought that we would build this together
But everything I touch just seems to break
Am I your sail or your anchor?
Am I the calm or the hurricane?

I feel the ground start to shake
I hear a voice shouting move
But there is no fucking way
I’d leave you

So I’ll just hold you like a hand grenade
You touch me like a razor blade
I wish there was some other way right now, ohohohoh
Like a house on fire we’re up in flames
I’d burn here if that’s what it takes
To let you know I won’t let go of you, ohohohoh

Is the soundtrack to our lives
The bang of a slamming door
What happens when we all start to feel like
Nothing matters anymore
Every day like a chambered round, a trigger pulled
A hammer click, a breath we hold
A world outside I can’t control
No matter what I do

So I’ll just hold you like a hand grenade
You touch me like a razor blade
I wish there was some other way right now, ohohohoh
Like a house on fire we’re up in flames
I’d burn here if that’s what it takes
To let you know I won’t let go of you, ohohohoh

How is it a thing
That we just wanna hurt each other
I’m waiting out the rain
Feels like it’s gonna rain forever
Someday you will learn
That all I ever did was for you
And I would do it all again
I would do it all again

‘Til then I’ll hold you like a hand grenade
You touch me like a razor blade
I wish there was some other way right now, ohohohoh
Like a house on fire we’re up in flames
I’d burn here if that’s what it takes
To let you know I can’t let go of you, ohohohoh

Of you, ohohohoh…
Of you

3. The Violence Ver Ocultar

Dancing on the crumbling precipice
The rocks are coming loose just at the edge
Are we laughing? Are we crying?
Are we drowning? Are we dead?
Or is it all a dream?

The bombs are getting closer everyday
«That could never happen here» we used to say
Have these wars come to our doorstep?
Has this moment finally come?
Or is it all a dream?

Are we not good enough?
Are we not brave enough?
Is the violence in our nature
Just the image of our maker?
Are we not good enough?
Are we not brave enough?
To become something greater
Than the violence in our nature?
Are we not good, good enough?

Or is it all a dream?

To a predetermined fate are we condemned?
Or maybe we’re a book without an end?
We’re not stories, we’re not actors
We’re awake and in control
And this is not a dream

So can we break this mold
And set in motion something new?
Forgetting what we know
An evolution overdue
Fight the current
Pull the ripcord

Get away!

Are we not good enough?
Are we not brave enough?
Is the violence in our nature
Just the image of our maker?
Are we not good enough?
Are we not brave enough?
To become something greater
Than the violence in our nature?
Are we not good, good enough?

Well-trodden paths are all we take
We need a storm, let’s pray for rain now
To wash these roads away
Let’s get off track and wander far
Same roads lead to same destinations
Follow nothing but your heart
We’re talking in our sleep
And sleeping through our lives
And we dream of the places where we never die
We step from the shadows and into the light

Are we not good enough?
Are we not brave enough?
Is the violence in our nature
Just the image of our maker?
Are we not good enough?
Are we not brave enough?
To become something greater
Than the violence in our nature?
Are we not good enough?
Are we not brave enough?
Are we not good, good enough?
Or was it all a dream?

4. Welcome To The Breakdown Ver Ocultar

All hail the jester has landed
In flyover country he sings
We’re charmed like a snake in a basket
We should be coiled up and ready to spring
Raising a cross just to burn it
The clergy are selling their souls
Clearing a path, ignoring the facts
Intoxicated by the throne

But we’ll be standing here holding our ground come what may
Like a ghost haunts from beyond the grave

Welcome to the breakdown
Welcome to the end of the road
Welcome to the breakdown
And we’ve got nowhere else to go

When we all go deaf in the chamber of echoes
Cheering the missile parade
Agreeing to let all the banks rob the people
Together we circle the drain

We’ll be standing here holding our ground come what may
Like a ghost haunts from beyond the grave

Welcome to the breakdown
Welcome to the end of the road
Welcome to the breakdown
And we’ve got nowhere else to go
Welcome to the breakdown
Welcome to the end of the road
This is a breakdown
And we’ve got nowhere else to go

It’s a game, you’ve been played
It’s a flock, you’re the sheep
It’s a pied piper song that has lulled you to sleep
It’s a lie and you fell for it, hook line and sinker
A hand that you shook that then gave you the finger
A fraud and a fake, a cowardly king
A lie to your face, but you still kiss the ring
This is the breakdown, this is the breakdown
This is the breakdown!

We are standing here holding our ground come what may
Like a ghost haunts from beyond the grave

Welcome to the breakdown
Welcome to the end of the road
This is a breakdown
And we’ve got nowhere else to go
Welcome to the breakdown
Welcome to the end of the road
This is a breakdown
And we’ve got nowhere else to go

It’s not much but this is home
And there’s nowhere else to go!

5. Far From Perfect Ver Ocultar

Keeping up appearances don’t break now
Or buckle from the weight
Pretend to laugh but don’t laugh too loud

Do you feel the pressure building
The anger spilling out now
Meanwhile the cracks have formed on
The masks we’ve worn up ‘til now

We are far from perfect
But perfect as we are
We are bruised, we are broken
But we are goddamn works of art
Works of art

The pieces of our hearts all gravitated
Together but before we could be part of this mosaic
We had to break apart

Like glass we’re falling faster than stars
Meanwhile the cracks have formed on
The masks we’ve worn up ‘til now
Take a look

We are far from perfect
But perfect as we are
We are bruised, we are broken
But we are goddamn works of art

In every color we shine
A tapestry of scars
With every thread
We’re growing stronger and moving on
We’re finding right ways despite the wrong ones
We’re clearing paths blocked by storms
We’re finding the beauty in what you’ve ignored

We are far from perfect
But perfect as we are

We are far from perfect
But perfect as we are
We are bruised, we are broken
We are goddamn works of art

Yeah we are
Perfect as we are
Perfect as we are

6. Bullshit Ver Ocultar

Thank you for your silence, your continuing compliance
It’s your buried head so deep in sand that ushered in the virus
Oh no please don’t lift a finger, don’t get up, just sit right there
Don’t worry about the thoughts inside your pretty little head

So we stick to the script and recite your lines
Don’t break from the character just keep it inside

But this is bullshit (bullshit)
It’s finally coming into focus (focus)
You’re lying and I think you know it but you’re too afraid
To face the storm you helped create
Yeah this is bullshit (bullshit)
And did you think I wouldn’t notice? (notice)
Cracks in your theory are showing like a broken vase
Your grip around me dissipates

And we are separated only by division and the walls that we create
But we are more alike than different when we stop and take a minute face to face

They say we’re divided and we are conquered
Yeah, but our enemies have never been each other, no

Because this is bullshit (bullshit)
It’s finally coming into focus (focus)
You’re lying and I think you know it but you’re too afraid
To face the storm you helped create
Yeah this is bullshit (bullshit)
And did you think I wouldn’t notice? (notice)
Cracks in your theory are showing like a broken vase
Your grip around me dissipates

So we scale the walls and fire escapes
A wheat paste brush and cans of paint
To cover up your walls with something new
Because we all know, oh

Your signs say we’re not good enough, not cute enough
Not smart enough, not worth your love
Out with the old and in with something new

Bullshit, I’m not sorry to say
That this is bullshit
You been lying to me
Bullshit and it always was
And you know and you know and you know and you know
That this is bullshit coming right at you
Bullshit coming home to roost
Bullshit and you’re too afraid
To face the storm you helped create

This is bullshit, this is bullshit
Bullshit and you’re too afraid
To face the storm you helped create

7. Politics of Love Ver Ocultar

I hear your voice in the wind
It follows me, it cuts right through the noise
As we spin on dance floors made of ice
So rest your hand in mine
Steady now, ignore the sound
The breaking lines
The crack beneath our feet as time runs out
Each night like a white noise frequency
Broadcast the waves, I tune them out
Clear signs outlined
But I couldn’t see what I see now

I should’ve said something to you
When I saw you walk away, instead I did nothing
And now you’re gone and it’s too late
We board up the windows we used to look through
I should’ve said something, I should’ve said something to you

Like buried seeds in the ground
Invisible but growing
Underneath pushing out
Now tangled in the vine, I hear the sound
Heartbeats from a world so far away
The distant drums, I tune them out
Each night right before I fall asleep
I hear them now

I should’ve said something to you
When I saw you walk away, instead I did nothing
And now you’re gone and it’s too late
So we board up the windows we used to look through
I should’ve said something, yeah, I should’ve said something to you
I should’ve said something, yeah, I should’ve said something
So we board up the windows we used to look through
I should’ve said something, I should’ve said something, I should’ve said something
Yeah, I should’ve said something to you

8. Parts Per Million Ver Ocultar

There’s something wrong with the words that we’re not saying
And the silence we’re creating like a ghost note symphony
There’s something wrong and the temperature is rising
Ignoring every siren as we’re marching towards a cliff
But these are choices that we don’t have to make
Block out the voices ‘cause they have led you astray
What I’ve been trying to say to you is that

There’s something in the water, there must be something in the air
Just ‘cause I can’t put my finger on it, it doesn’t mean that it’s not there

We are all turned on but then we all tune out
As we are hypnotized by the sparkling lies
We fall under their spell
But don’t forget that these are choices
That we don’t have to make, so many voices
That have led us astray, we can’t keep anything down
The room is spinning around

There must be something in the water, yeah there’s something in the air
Just ‘cause I can’t put my finger on it, it doesn’t mean that it’s not there

You are the grains of sand that slip through my hands again
And we are the hourglass, love like a flame that can’t be held
Somewhere beyond the lives we burn, lies the point of no return
Like the sand in the hourglass
But there is something in your eyes that shakes me back to life
And though I can’t put my finger on it
Now I know we’re gonna be alright
It’s gonna be alright, it’s gonna be alright

‘Cause there is something in the water, yeah there is something in the water
In this life we sink or swim or just float
We all die yeah, but did we live at all?

9. Mourning In Amerika Ver Ocultar

Stand by to switch on, we fire on all pistons
We’re singing along but no one is listening
From dusk until dawn we stay up to carry the flame
And when it’s all said and done in these alternate endings
When nothing is left but the stragglers and empties
We’re sleeping it off just to wake up and start it again

So burn the statues to the ground
It’s time to lay your weapons down
Bound for glory on this train
But there’s a bridge out up ahead
Noise cancel, drown the signal out
Change channels, manufacture doubt
When the only thing we’ll fight for every day
Is a better seat on a crashing…

Plain to see but hard to breathe
The streets are full of tumbleweeds

And now it’s morning in the streets of amerika
But we don’t go outside anymore
The radio blasts hysteria
With a television sideways on the floor

Under moonlit skies and surveillance
As we cheer from the stands in the stadiums
On a jumbotron we all sing along to escape

Once we were the lighthouse
To the world’s most desperate ships
But what we became was a towering flame
Leading the moth right into it
Now we are waking up to the phone lines cut

Because it’s morning in the streets of amerika
And we don’t go outside anymore
The radio blasts hysteria
While the television’s sideways on the floor

With the teleprompter in our faces
We don’t even know what we’re saying
A car that’s slowly crashing and we can’t look away
Parading to the edge of a cliff now
We’re trying to figure out how to get down
While the night is fast approaching

Will we even recognize our former lives in this artificial light?

Morning in the streets of amerika
And we don’t go outside anymore
There’s something wrong with the stereo
And the television’s sideways

We’re mourning in the streets of amerika
Mourning in the streets of amerika
We’re mourning in the streets of amerika
Mourning in the streets of amerika

10. How Many Walls Ver Ocultar

How many walls can you put up?
How many guns ‘til you feel safe?
How many times can we watch this story
Over and over and over again?
And how many years have we wasted
Counting the lies that we’ve been fed?
For something to change we have waited
Over and over and over again

I’m entertained by the monkey on your back
But can we still call it a joke if no one laughs?
It’s either going up in smoke around me or according to plan
A bittersweet disaster mounting over and over again

How many walls can you put up?
How many guns ‘til you feel safe?
How many times can we watch this story
Over and over and over again?
How many years have we wasted
Counting the lies that we’ve been fed?
For something to change we have waited
Over and over and over again

Chasing our own tail, the more we learn the less we know
As the monsters lost in history are now making their return
As we bow down, roll out the carpet red as rose
We should have known

How many walls can you put up?
How many guns ‘til you feel safe?
How many times can we watch this story

11. Miracle Ver Ocultar

We scan the empty sky always without success
We’re lighting signal fires and spelling S.O.S.
We stare at broken clocks, the truth comes twice a day
While every second just slips away

Are you going to wait here for a sign to let you know now?
Are you going to sit there paralyzed by what you’ve seen?
Or are you going to finally grip the wheel? I think you know how
Is this more than you expected it to be?

Don’t wait for a miracle to tumble from the sky
To part the seas around you or turn water into wine
Don’t wait for a miracle, the world is passing by
The walls that all surround you are only in your mind

The stage is set and the curtains pulled
Ready or not, it’s time, on with the show
Now the crowds have grown impatient
And the train has left the station
And the candles you are lighting in the dark will fade away

So what are you waiting for? A sign to let you know now?
Are you gonna sit there paralyzed by what you’ve seen?
Are you going to finally grip the wheel? I think you know how
Are you gonna throw it all away?

Don’t wait for a miracle to tumble from the sky
To part the seas around you or turn water into wine
Don’t wait for a miracle, the world is passing by
The walls that all surround you are only in your mind

When the weight we carry breaks us
We’re tempted to stay down
But every road to recovery
Starts at the breakdown

But we don’t need miracles to tumble from the sky
To part the seas around us or turn water into wine
Because we are the miracles, we happen all the time
We’re not scared of what surrounds us, we’re not waiting for a sign

We are the miracles
We are the miracles

We are the miracles

Hey!
