about

I embrace the anarchy of my soul
& leave behind the sad blossom of the world
From broken shadows and vanquished dreams
I step into the undertow of things...

Track Name: Northbound Protest
★Northbound Protest★ 

Get up, Get down
There’s revolution in this town

Sentía que el espacio se la comía
Todas las sombras abrazaban su agonía
Respiraba fuerte, la sangre latía
¿Por qué ser mujer es la condición más fría?

Ya no canta el pájaro que entre barras vive
Ya no canta, despacio, todos los ruidos le siguen
Cuando tu voz la apagan por ser libre
Cuenta cuántas líneas, cuántos días escribiste sin mentirte

Get up, Get down
There’s revolution in this town

Fueron tiempos trazados bajo velos negros
Los más crudos versos se escribieron desde el suelo
Con tinta de sangre, el nombre se encapucha
Sólo flores reconocen la verdad de la que lucha
Y ahora pa’ dónde vamos, es la pregunta clave
Pa’ romper la esclavitud de lo que arde
Madre de corazón, artista con vocación
Trabajadora a mucha honra, mujer con pasión

Get up, Get down
There’s Revolution in this town

There’s a road out of here
It’s a northbound protest
I’m not sick, just feeling it
Pull your head out of the sand

Palabras dignas en montes eternos
Justicia para los labios pintados de negro
No pedimos sutileza, no pedimos el perdón
Compasión falta en toda generación
Basta ya de aceptar los papeles que nos dan
Jugándolos nos urgamos en la llaga del mal
Un paso más, hay muchos motivos
Levantémonos, crucemos el río

Get up, Get down
There’s revolution in this town

There’s a road out of here
It’s a northbound protest
I’m not sick, just feeling it
Pull your head out of the sand
Track Name: Annabel's Hurts
★Annabel's Hurts★

Everybody's talking about Annabel’s hurts
The coffee stain of her morning
Those dregs of work
From the porn of an age to the sweet irony of rain
A generation gives birth to Annabel’s hurts

If the truth will set you free, I’m hanging around the liberty tree

Evictions in the paper, trouble down town
But the lipstick on her lips will make you forget everything
Do you remember?
Those agents of sunshine - Rebel vision!
Bring the milk of words
Everybody’s talking about Annabel’s hurts

If the truth will set you free, I’m hanging around the liberty tree

Te dice lo que quieres
Te dice lo que falta
Con la cabeza llena
Con la cabeza alta
Agárrate a ella
Es tus raíces
Sino no sabrás
Dónde te diriges
Te dice lo que quieres
Te dice lo que falta
No escuches a tu almohada
La vanidad alaba
Duerme tu mente
Llénala con su nombre
Annabel es el sonido
Al que tus labios responden
Te dice lo que quieres
Te dice lo que falta
Track Name: One Foot Out of this Town
★One Foot Out of this Town★

I embrace the anarchy of my soul
& leave behind the sad blossom of the world
From broken shadows & vanquished dreams
I step into the undertow of things

I won’t regret nothing, oh, no, no, no
This decision is not sudden, oh no
This time I’m ready, ready to roll
Got my bags, gonna hit the road

I’ve got one foot out of this town

I’ve been up against the ropes
But now I’m breathing with hope
I’ve touched ten down on my knee’s
From that point I’m rising to follow my dreams

I’ve got one foot out of this town

Gotta keep moving along
Follow the wisdom of this song

Got rivers to find, oceans to breach
Mountains to scale, songs to sing
Gotta keep moving along

I embrace the anarchy of my soul

& leave behind the sad blossom of the world
From broken shadows & vanquished dreams
I step into the undertow of things

I’ve got one foot out of this town
I’m reaching, I ‘m reaching
I’ve got one foot out of this town
I’m reaching, I ‘m reaching
Track Name: Sleep Sister
★Sleep Sister★

Es la incondicionalidad que siento por ti
¡Nunca me voy a rendir!
Sleep sister
De seguir deseando alejarte de sufrir
Hay ruido sí, ya lo vi venir
Sleep sister

Nos arrollaron olas, perdimos el papel
Crecimos y el tiempo dejó ver

Sleep sister
Que trazabas arcos mientras me alejaba de tu ser
Llamando a mis entrañas para poderte entender

Have you seen the splinter in the sands?
The path of nomads?
They’re waiting

Say your name, if you're still awake, run to the sea
You hold the key, let’s gravitate, run to the sea

Hay un universo en tu pecho para ser descubierto
¡No hay fronteras para entenderlo!
Sleep sister
Yo te doy la mano, tú eres el secreto
Déjame acercarme para ver tu vuelo
Sleep sister

Rompamos la ignorancia y paremos esta noria
Que mi luz oigas cuando estés sola
Sleep sister
Y yo distinga tu luz serena en la multitud
Que tu virtud aúlle libre,
¡Libre eres tú!

Have you seen the splinter in the sands?
The path of nomads?
They’re waiting

Say your name, If you're still awake, run to the sea
You hold the key, let’s gravitate, run to the sea

There’s a new moon rising, surrender to the silence, sleep sister, sleep sister we’re here
In wheels of illusion, everything flows, sleep sister, sleep sister we’re here

Have you seen the splinter in the sands? the path of nomads?
They’re waiting

Say your name, If you're still awake, run to the sea
You hold the key, let’s gravitate, run to the sea
Sleep sister
Track Name: Beat Manifesto
★Beat Manifesto★



Go on and write it down
This is a Beat Manifesto

Put your ear to the ground

This is a Beat Manifesto

Hear that rhythm pound

This is a Beat Manifesto
To an hour glass of sound

This is a Beat Manifesto

This is a Beat Manifesto


This is a Beat Manifesto


We forever dance our feet

This is a Beat Manifesto

Can’t watch the world fall asleep

This is a Beat Manifesto

Have you heard the frequency?

This is a Beat Manifesto

Don’t you know we’re running on empty?

This is a Beat Manifesto

This is a Beat Manifesto

This is a Beat Manifesto



The cry of nevermore

This is a Beat Manifesto
From the eye of the storm
This is a Beat Manifesto

Something worth fighting for
This is a Beat Manifesto


This is a Beat Manifesto

This is a Beat Manifesto

This is a Beat Manifesto
Track Name: One Eye Open
★One Eye Open★

Gravity and colour
Fragments of the night
To a battleground of faces
She blinks before the world
Another heartbeat heard to a kaleidoscope of places

Con palabras que la vieron nacer
Se caían las sílabas del ayer
Dijo padre, sólo quiero cantar
El llanto que oyes no se puede apagar

Vagabunda de los planetas 
El cielo era su meta
Se dejaría la piel
En sus letras

She was born with one eye open
To strong to be broken

Se juntaba en la calle sin profeta
Voceando sus garras y sus penas
Se arropaba junto a otros en la cena
Es lo que compartía, ya no era niña

Ahora su estrella se encendía
No apagarán su mecha
Porque ni la lluvia
Puede con su fuerza

Se fumaba un cigarro, 
Se le caían las manos del engaño, sí
Lo que dijeron y lo que hicieron
Otra vez no coincidieron, no

Y como al echarse de menos
En latas de conservas escondían sus miedos
Esta es la historia
De este ángel sin memoria

She was born with one eye open
To strong to be broken

She was born
 She was born

Ángel de la guarda no te escondas
Hoy compartieron sus derrotas 
De deseos lanzados al vacío
Para así recuperar lo perdido

Vagabunda de los planetas
Su tierra dejó el mar
Surcó horizontes
Llegó su final

She was born with one eye open
To strong to be broken

Like a puppet on a string
Watching the waves come crashing in
Waiting to drift away
Hear the cosmos sing for this little wing
Radiant how she cries
Track Name: Trasnochar
★Trasnochar★

I’ve been dazed for so long
Sugar, Sugar
What’s going on?
I’ve been looking for peace of mind
I’ve been dazed for so long

Wild horses ride, Out across the plains
Can I shake it? Can I break it? Can I take it? Can I fake it?
Vamos

I’ve been dazed for so long
Honey, Honey
Hear my song!
I’ve been looking for peace of mind
I’ve been dazed for so long

Wild horses ride, Out across the plains
Can I shake it? Can I break it? Can I take it? Can I fake it?
Vamos

Rasqué la noche para navegar
Los sueños se escapan al mirar atrás
Somos hijos de la luna volamos al trasnochar
Escucha la melodía para despertar

Rasqué la noche para encontrar
Qué hay detrás de tu pensar
Somos hijos de la luna volamos al trasnochar
Trae las alas, vamos a viajar

Say yes man, come on! Say yes man, what more d'you want?
Somos hijos de la luna volamos al trasnochar
Trasnochar
Track Name: Spirit of Rebellion
★Spirit of Rebellion★

You’ve got that spirit of rebellion in you
A soul bursting storm of light, wild child breaking through
An everyday planetary apostle
You’ve got that spirit of rebellion in you

When we were young we made the rules
As you get older they are made for you
They are made for you

You’ve got that spirit of rebellion in you
The howl of a transient heart breaking through
An everyday planetary apostle
You’ve got that spirit of rebellion in you

When we were young we made the rules
As you get older they are made for you
They are made for you

Another world is possible!
¡La conversación empieza aquí, escúchame!

Another world is possible!
¡La conversación empieza aquí, escúchame!

Somos semillas la tierra nos enseñó a crear
Si más te entierran más creces, recuerda la lluvia
Recojamos los deseos es el momento y el lugar
¡Rebeldía rebeldía lanzando pétalos de igualdad!

Fíjate en lo bueno que hay en ti
Sabes que hay mucho por venir
Somos los que estábamos esperando, eh!
Sé el cambio que quieres ver

You’ve got that spirit of rebellion in you
An everyday planetary apostle


Another world is possible
Another world is possible
Track Name: Shape of the Nation
★Shape of the Nation★

Ladies & Gentlemen

You better cover your ears or your brains may pop out



Television a shape of creation
From the pastures of occupation
With an orwellian eye I twist and shout
Tuning in, dropping out

To imagination the only good nation
Dancing on a zodiacs wings
We are, we are cosmic beings
Hear on earth the earth the only place in space
With borders shake the bass
Planetary thought knows no bounds
We are made of stars burning sound
In love the universal voice
Stepping out into the void
The dance of the cosmos give a choice
Live corformity or find your voice

Feel the shape, the shape of nation
Be the new, the new vibration

Next to a hum drum star

In the corners of the universe
This vastness you can only bear
Together at one a peaceful vision shared 
By choice a world empowered to the wolves of the night will not cower
Take a stride towards freedom in the heart of the morning
& feel the courage of suns calling, calling
Waking up, on the rising tide
A supernova expanding inside
Collect the elements of alchemy within
The strength of love through non conforming

Feel the shape, the shape of nation
Be the new, the new vibration

Television a shape of creation
From the pastures of occupation
With an Orwellian eye I twist and shout
Tuning in, dropping out

To imagination the only good nation
Dancing on a zodiacs wings - we are, we are cosmic beings



Ladies & Gentlemen, over & out!
Track Name: Friendship Wears Tattoos
★Friendship Wears Tattoos★



We saw each other through the good times
We saw each other through the bad
We kicked and screamed then we shook it all away

Well, Well, Well, where are you now?

When our ship was sinking fast
We would bail out those blues
Now that water is rising up

Well, Well, Well, where are you now?

‘Cause when I turned to look at you
I saw friendship wears tattoos
Whatever ever life may take, whatever ever life may break
Friendship wears tattoos

We used to drink wine by the riverside
Talk about our hopes & dreams
We said we’d meet in another life
Well, Well, Well, where are you now?



‘Cause when I turned to look at you
I saw friendship wears tattoos
Whatever ever life may take, whatever ever life may break
Friendship wears tattoos

Tú tienes el poder de llegar a conocer
Cada canal y secreto del amanecer
Volviendo hacia atrás, recordando las palabras
Nos abrazamos al pasar

Mirando las estrellas nos comimos el mundo
Tumbadas en la cima respirando el humo
Ciudad sin encanto, chilla bajo nuestro llanto
Incomprendidas nohotras

Disimulando nuestros miedos a costa de llorar menos
Alejándonos de lo que más queremos
Beber la luna en ayunas, esperanza y amargura
Locuras sin ataduras

Vimos el sol romperse a pedazos
Hoy son las partes de años tatuados
Tú tienes el poder de llegar a conocer
Cada canal y secreto del amanecer

‘Cause when I turned to look at you
I saw friendship wears tattoos
Whatever ever life may take, whatever ever life may break
Friendship wears tattoos
Track Name: We're All Strangers Here
★We're All Strangers Here★

We’re all strangers here
Swept away across stormy seas
Looking for the questions that define the answers
We’re all strangers here

Piénsate como el planeta
La vida entra y sale de ti
Cada vez que respiras, respira, continúa
La vida quiere vivir
Ser lenta como la tierra
Encontrando la fecunda paciencia
Que el cielo se vacíe de sus promesas
Empapando cada luna llena

We’re all strangers here
Swept away across stormy seas
Looking for the questions that define the answers
We’re all strangers here

Esperando la llegada del x-algo
El tren pasa de largo
La vida sonríe desde su letargo
Caen lágrimas de esfuerzo envenenado
Hielo lunar reflejado en mi vaso
Bebo agua de actos silenciados
Cadena perpetua
De respuestas con preguntas mal puestas

Swept away
Corriente que lleva a esta playa no desierta
Swept away
Nuestra piel se agrieta como la tierra
Swept away
Cosimos la vida a nuestra vida incierta

Swept away
Y sigo respirando, pero hay algo que me frena

We’re all strangers here
Swept away across stormy seas
Looking for the questions that define the answers
We’re all strangers here

Como extraños buscando en la oscuridad
Devorados por la idea de la eternidad
We’re all strangers
Se nos olvidaron las hojas y los pétalos
Una nueva ola vencerá este tiempo
We’re all strangers here
