Track Name: Almodovar
Chained to be enamored
To pain that cuts inside
Accustomed to the eyelids
Shutting down for the ride
A black stain that remains engraved
Remains engraved in my memory
Look at my bursting soul
How frightening it is to come out
Of this ocean of doubt
Too fragile to depend on
Death in tenement house
Death seems a distant thing ignoring
The impending long long nocturnal
As we walk the walk of life’s uncharted way
Uncharted way
Treating unknown paths leading
To unknown unknown places
Track Name: Amapola
Eons ago
Under the light
She vanished within thin air
No sign of light
Flickering tongues
Seduce at night
Let’s run away tonight my love
Let’s run away tonight tonight
Radiant eyes and rays of hate
Illuminate the color of death
Scattered scars left from tumults of war
Darkness at shallower depths
Blind epic machine builds cadavers
The echoing sounds of cemeteries
Demonic days approach and slowly
Takes us closer to the end
Luminous nights stretch longer as explosives
Catapult over a citadel
Constellations watch us as clouds scatter
Constellations watch us as the sky falls down
The jealous hope has come and gone
Without a lucid sign we must return in tears
And blind.
Track Name: Into a Kingdom
Whispers of the shadow of the trees
Echo under the moonlight
White sky from the darkened ambiance
Striking grounds with murky rays
The power of ancestral sins
Ignites this novelistic dream
Kings and queens rise from
The depths of black and deliver victory
Kings and queens will rise from the abyss
Triumphantly into a kingdom
Tyrannical the masters lurk within the shadows
Battle for emancipation and survival
Simultaneous fighting of spiritual forces
The masters of tyranny join their visions into darkness
Track Name: Provocador
Uninvited sailor maps his way
Through the eyes of dawn seeks its prey
A pleasant sharp taste of bait awaits
Penetrating white stimulant
A wall of sound decays to the unknown
What a sight this is
We wrap the night around all evil
Provocative provocative
Cold and fragile nostrils appear
Facing chapters of painted fears
A pleasant sharp taste of bait awaits
Penetrating white stimulant
An empire bursting in flames
Track Name: The Fury in their Eyes
Celestial clock has clicked
Spoken words undone words undone
A final minute
Spoken words undone undone
The shadow of the moon is compared to
The radiant and tireless stare of the children in despair
The fury in their eyes has faded from false promises
There’s anarchy in their movements
But at the same time someone controls them
Their eyes reflect anguish
Their eyes reflect pain
And what is said of this blind justice
And what is said of this plague of death
Track Name: The Ghostly Woman
Lament filled with pain
Is heard throughout the night
Enraged dressed in black
Revenge is on her mind
Her face sometimes that of
A horse often horribly blank
Her long fingernails
Gleam like polished tin in the moonlight
Her pride and jealousy drove her to acts
Of pure vengeance
Intruders from across the sea
Paid the price in her presence
And now every night
There’s a haunting voice that screams out
Cannot rest until they’re found
Until they’re found
Cannot rest until they’re found
Until they’re found
Cannot rest until they’re found
Until they're found
The ghostly woman wanders
Along canals and rivers
Crying for her children looking for her children
The ghostly woman wanders
Along canals and rivers
Crying for her children looking for her children
Cannot rest until they’re found
Until they’re found
Cannot rest until they’re found
Until they’re found
Cannot rest until they’re found
Until they’re found
