Track Name: Niña Vacía (Empty Girl)
En un pais muy lejos
en un mundo bien peligroso
vive una nina curiosa
con los ojos neblinosos
para hablarle un dia
le llame en la calle
me pego un golpe
mi vista volvio miope
le pregunte su nombre
y me dijo no hombre
no uso esas cosas
son bainas peligrosas

Esa nina esta vacia vive por el dia
vive vive por el dia
esa nina esta vacia
baila en su blasfemia
baila en su blasfemia
esa nina vive por el chiste
vive por el chiste que es uno que existe
que existe

Pues me quede soprendida
al tamano de tu herida
bien chiquita era con sus ojos de cera
le ofrecia una comida
pa'aplacar a su sonrisa
pero eres tu quien tiene hambre dijo
eres tu eres eres eres tu
un espejo peligroso
un demonio hambriento
una reflecion clara de
los miedos de la gente

Esta nina esta vacia
vive por el dia
vive vive por el dia
esta nina esta vacia
baila en su blasfemia
baila es su blasfemia
esa nina vive por el chiste
vive por el chiste que es uno
que existe...que existe
Track Name: Subway Love
Cara de papel
Eyes red as fire flies
Will you be the dream to lead my day?
Twitching and clutching yet never touching
Let this blushing air take me away

Simple subway ride I see your red eyes
And somehow I can’t help but be
Be taken away by
Your tattoo suit might not be the taste of some
But wear I come from it leave me nearly hypnotized

A veces sietnto vacia
Pero mi sueno es que un dia
Me dirias que soy tu amor de otra vida

Maybe it seems kind of strange
But I’m a fan of this silent exchange
Escondo tu Mirada y nunca digo nada

I wish I knew you boy
I could ooze right through you boy
Ride my thoughts like a buzz
What does what does time mean anyway

A curious grin as my guide
I let my mind move creating a new side
Full fleet of arrows heading west
I follow those dreams like I’m on a sleigh ride

Subway wheels crank with a halt
Sliding ding your out the door
I concentrate to see if you turn around
But were not in the movie so what more could I ask for

Lately its bit hitting me
Oh
This ruthless desperation
For some kind of vindication
You cant hide you cant run
You can’t help no one, you cant hurt no
Track Name: Alas (Wings)
Un encuentro de volada
una mirada una llamada
la duda que no se calla
un encuentro de volada
un deseo fuerte y intenso
complicado pero hecho
complicado pero cosecho
un camino sin regreso

pero sigo con mis alas
sigo sigo con mis alas
pero sigo con mis alas
sigo sigo con mis alas
con mis alas
con mis alas
con mis alas
con mis alas

siento la suavidad de la noche
la harmonia constante
de las voces
que me cantan
tus canciones
canciones del tiempo
tiempo perdido
el frio tuyo me hace derritir
por las rajas
las rajas del suelo
y fluyo como el mar
y fluyo como el mar

pero sigo con mis alas
sigo sigo con mis alas
pero sigo con mis alas
sigo sigo con mis alas
con mis alas
con mi alas
con mis alas
con mis alas
Track Name: I'm Weak (Soy Débil)
I know I'm supposed to be the strong one
but on this early morning I am broken
I wish I were immune
to this tragedy
but no matter how cliche
the tears the tears fall anyway
were done gone and cut but but but
theres a but in the back of my mind
i prefer not to hear a word then to
hope hope hope for something
i'll never find
and maybe and maybe im living a lie
telling you im fine when I wish
you were all mine
and maybe I wish I had more control
and I could be whole when really I don't want
to be alone
Sad slumber porous hands my lightening ego
cant understand oh empty god
can you here me weep
let me be clear my dear
Im weak
I am I am I am
im weak
I am I am I am
Im weak
I am I am I am
Im weak
I am I am I am
I weak
I ask myself sometime why
this misery is on repeat
fool me once, fool me twice
but to always fall in this tragedy
hundred times a charm don't be
alarmed it can be fixed
just cut off you head and bleed on the floor
maybe then maybe you won't cry no more
well I fancy this fantasy and all that it breeds
this aint about love
its about need
oh empty god can you hear me weep
let me be clear my dear
I'm weak
I am I am I am
I'm weak
I am I am I am
Im weak
I am I am I am
Im weak
I am I am I am
Track Name: El Amor es un Castigo (Love is Punishment)
oh oh what do you know the ringlets in my hair
have gotten all twisted
in some dark shit the sweat of our legs soaked
through the sheets and I cant seem to fix this
daze i've fallen into Im swimming in sin
my body grows thin
my jittering skin jumps with the hours on the clock
and no matter how hard I try I can't stop
oh oh what do you know
im light as a feather and my cheeks are like chiles
oh oh what do you know my eyes have grown
wide like you've done and gone fishin for puppy
love i'm not drunk enough to open up
why do I have to define yours and mine?
drawing lines oh oh oh oh what do you know
you've done and gone ape shit, I can't take it

Oh oh oh oh oh keep chewing at my bones
go deep inside these clothes
the little girl in me would simply weep
if I could find the words to speak

So I ask you how long
how long will we wait this time
and you say only time will tell
and I ask, can you feel this hell?
can you feel this hell can you feel this hell
can you feel this hell? can you feel this hell? cna you feel this hell? can you feel this hell? oh oh oh

oh oh oh oh keep chewing at my bones
go deep inside these clothes
the little girl in me would simply weep if I could find the words to speak

Dime porque duele dime porque suele ser
este vacio en el centro de mi universo cuando recorro el camino es tan frio
no me siento solo pero me siento sin ti
este vacio aun respira aun no hace cicatriz
el amor es un castigo
el amor es un castigo...
Track Name: Nadie (No One)
Mirando un espejo a tu cara tan palida y
tus ojos indecisas y pienso en como abusas de
las rosas
mirada posesiva rabia contenido te veo nina al
punto de explotar como una bomba nuclear
banando en tu pena juzgando tus palabras
tenes un don por sobrepensar te veo
bailando en esta jodido carnaval

y aveces me toca esta soledad cosmica
y eso me motiva a pagar mi deuda karmica
porque al final yo no soy nadie

pienso en tu cara en todo la dulzura
pero me acuerdo que esta todo ahogando en dudas
y esa tension me embruja
luchando por control un pequeno caracol
juega entre mis manos y no se si volvere encontrarlos momentos de claridad
mi propio dignidad pero no se si estoy lista
a dejar estos juegos egoistas

y aveces me toca esa soledad cosmica
y eso me motiva a pagar me deuda karmica
porque al final no soy no no no no no soy nadie

tragando el alma quiero olvidarme de la historia nuestra, olvidarme de lo que cuesta a dar su ser entero a otro humano pero no soy mas que un pinche gusano bailando inhalando la tierra me pisas y me cerebro queda exprimido cortado toma los pedazos y soy un dibujo animado. no soy nadie me he creado sola, tu crees que mis actos son originales, mis fallos hasta ellos son planificados
y me siento aqui con el corazon roto jugando en la obra, esperando que todos me adoren pero no estan todos en su propio show acabo esta pelicula de abandono. solo soy otra payasa en este carnaval y que bueno que un dia me muero y a nadie le va a importar, al final estoy creando el cuento al final sigo vivo y tengo que hacer algo. Levantarme todos los dias y moverme las piernas. Ponerme mascara de humana y fingir ser sana. Recordando los momentos magicos en que el universo me recuerda. No soy grande. No soy importante. No soy nadie. No soy Nadie.

Y a veces me toca esa soledad cosmica. y eso me motiva a pagar mi deuda karmica. Porque al final yo no soy. No soy nadie. No no no no. No soy nadie.
Track Name: Home is Here
This isnt the first time that weve lost the value in
the midst of this looney bin
you know where the uptight win
but ill tell you boy im losing the battle now
my system just wont allow another struggle in learning how
to navigate water oh so turbulent
i want celebration to be permanent
take note it will all be gone in an instant
lets remember the way that life used to be
because the free get the benifit of revelry
in the art that lies right in front of our noses oh

lets go home today
we can put our hats on
throw on our long johns
chase our troubles away
lets go home today
we can be like children
just breath the air in
fall from a slow spin
lets go home today
we can do it once more
pretend like its what we live for
today

so lets go deep to the place where dreams dont exist
a place where only love persists
and life aint something to be fixed
because its takes everything just to maintain my pride
somehow I try and try but I never seem to arrive
I dont want to navigate waters oh so turbulent
i want celebration to be permanent
take note it will all be gone in an instant
lets remember the way that life used to be
because the free get the benifit of revelry
in the art that lies right in front of our noses oh

lets go home today
we can put our hats on
throw on our long johns
chase our troubles away
lets go home today
we can be like children
just breath the air in
fall from the spins yea
lets go home today
we can do it once more
pretend like its what we live for
today



Well there's no reason to cry about
our troubles lets just get out of here
we'll start a farm in Oregon
form a band dye our hair blonde
we'll do anything we want we wont have to
