Track Name: Skyscrapers
Locusts enclosed in a farm
wasting all the food they have
We did not think about the future
but future is coming now

Clean the land, just kill it all
Scratch the ground until it's bald
Fill some wallets with their lives
and let’s pretend that we're not
slaves

There are machines
there are machines
everywhere
Cutting the trees
there are machines
we don't care
Everyone is drowning
in their own anesthesia

Watching tv,
new bigger screen,
internet
Go buy a new ship
and empty the sea
take the dare
Destroying, destroying
destroying, destroying
destroying

Stop begging loud
because no god
is going to save us now
not this time

Guess who's got the greatest car
Now he's like the superstars
It only wastes two tons of gas
but all in all is what we are

There are machines
there are machines
everywhere
Cutting the trees
there are machines
we don't care
Everyone is drowning
in their own anesthesia

Here comes the end
here comes the end
don't you see
Here comes the end
mix of scare
with ecstasy.
Hypocrites, corrupts
are praying for redemption

There are machines,
there are machines
everywhere
Killing the seas,
deadly disease
we’re aware
Everyone forgot this,
we've got massive amnesia

Here comes the end,
there are machines
don't you see
There are machines,
here comes the end,
everywhere
Destroying, destroying
destroying, destroying
destroying

Stop begging loud
because no god
is going to save us now
not this time


Stop begging loud
because no god
is going to save us now
not this time
Track Name: Set Me Free
This fear, this fear starts again
and feelings begin to roam
A star that shines so bright
would never get so dark

Please hear
Don’t let yourself think
what you must feel

What is like
to live restrained
You can’t escape from
heaven or from hell

Your tears, your tears again
are easing all the pain
Broken mirrors lay all around
Now that all is gone,
nowhere left to go


Please hear
Don’t let yourself think
what you must feel

What is like
to live restrained
You can’t escape from
heaven

What is like
to feel ashamed
You can’t proclaim
to be what you where
Track Name: Aconcagua
I'm lost
Nobody stops or waits for me
This world is mean so now I'm lost

I'm lost
I have to sail this meaningless sea
to find you and to find myself
but right now

I'm just lost
and I'm choking with my own words
trying to play with my last cards
there's no answer
I'm lost

I wish I had a higher place to go
a place to look around
and find my way again
I wish there were all the things I need,
to forget about you
Can you forget me?

You're lost
you're trying to remind
the flavor of your smile
but now your lips are closed
so you're lost
Nobody stops or wait for you
This world is mean so now you're lost

I wish I had a higher place to go
a place to look around
and find my way again
I wish there were all the things I need,
to forget about you
Can you forget me?

Now I think

It's all lost
It's all lost
We are lost

It's all lost
It's all lost
We are lost

It's all lost
It's all lost
We are lost

It's not lost
It's not lost
It's not lost
We’re not lost
Track Name: Last Day
Here... My smile
It shines so smoothly in your eyes
Tonight we'll be free
Together like when we sleep
Tonight

Oh... Anticipation
Runs in my head
It's ok.
It does not ache
I just need to accept our fate
But why?

How did it come this way?
Thought this was just a game
At least I kissed you

The dawn has come
And nothing's gone
Ohh... It's cold outside
Let's stay in bed
Some more



I have faith…
Well it's fading now,
That the fields would stay green
And grow for ever
Why?

How did it come this way?
Thought this was just a game
At least I kissed you

How did it come this way?
Thought this was just a game
And I promised not to cling
At least I kissed you
Track Name: Absence
My hands are shaking
My head is burning
All this chaos
is overwhelming
Need some peace of mind
Need some distraction
Some fresh air
to break this obsession

All I need is you
by my side
Please help me
to survive

Far away we went,
years had passed,
fears had gone
Far away we went,
years had passed ,
fears had gone




Sorrow was caused by you
I surrender to the fear
I just don’t want to hear
cause if I do this will start over again

I can’t pretend
to be the one who lets pain go away
so easily
So when is getting dark
I’m endlessly drifting away

Sorrow was caused by you
I surrender to the fear
I just don’t want to hear
cause if I do this will start over again

Sorrow was caused by you
I surrender to the fear
I just don’t want to hear
cause if I do this will start over again
Track Name: Multiverse
You better stop pretending
Cause I'm not the only one... with fears
I can't handle myself
Yourself

There are voices filling heads
They're enough for me to pay
Whispers are whispers
Even if they go astray

Corruption has taken our soul
We've almost become one more
And now this brain your pain
It's about to fall in chains

Daydreaming
A black hole collapse and smiles
It's freezing
Many suns, about to shine

Now I'm alive
You can't handle yourself
Ourselves

There are voices filling heads
They're enough for me to pay
Whispers are whispers
Even if they go astray

There are voices filling heads
They're enough for me to pay
Whispers are whispers
I don't
Track Name: Efímera
Dejaré, a mis amigos y a esta sociedad
Dejaré, a mi familia para toda la vida
Marcharé, sin descanso
Marcharé, no me detendré, hasta llegar

Seguiré
Por siempre
Hasta que al fin nos encontremos
Y cuando nos juntemos
Marcharemos
A un lugar
Donde nadie encuentre
Nuestra compartida soledad

Buscaré, el fulgor de tu mirada en mí
Hallaré, en tu compañía tanta calidez
Hallaré, junto a ti, toda mi niñez

Quemaré, antiguos prejuicios
Quemaré, a la muerte con mi ritual
Confiaré, hemos llegado a nuestra verdad
Y sabré, al verte a ti, no hay un final




Seguiré
Por siempre
Hasta que al fin nos encontremos
Y cuando nos juntemos
Marcharemos
A un lugar
Donde nadie encuentre
Nuestra compartida soledad

Y en el cielo veremos las estrellas morir
Seremos uno solo desde la antigüedad
Pero nosotros
Nunca dejará de existir
Nadie más
Dos espíritus en la eternidad
