Track Name: Mariposa Antisocial
Mariposa antisocial
no se atreve a volar
Ya el capullo empieza a apretar
Pero no puede soltar
el miedo

Allá arriba ve temblar
El abrigo de las hojas
Lejos, algo ve brillar
Como nunca nada antes
Qué lindo sería tocarlo
y sentir su calor
Track Name: The Afterglow
Iridescent particles in the light
A dress of dead leaves
and puzzles made out of clouds
The song that birds sing
In the hour of deep twilight
In the mountains,
snowfields reflect the sky

In the afterglow,
look who’s at your door

Wind whisperer, notice the trees
A message from the first strokes of Spring

Mercury in retrograde
The void of the sleepy eight
A universe in my head
So hard to concentrate
Call upon Jupiter

Beautiful perceptions
Violet sea
Roses in the morning
Name them after me

Dress of dead leaves,
I put it on for him

Particles, like thoughts
Suspended in the light…
Track Name: Gusanos
No te lo dije, nunca preguntaste
Fue hace 8 o 7 años atrás
En el mismo banco, en la misma plaza
Tuve un corazón entre los dientes
y no pude no apretar

Julio, Junio, tres, dos, uno
Como que todo va hacia atrás
Martes, lunes y domingo
y los gusanos vuelven a enterrarse

Sin flores, cómo encontrás la tumba
de lo que ya no podés tocar
Si me rompés , yo te rompo
O antes para no arriesgar
Con su corazón entre los dientes,
Como iba a no apretar

Y brillan estrellas que olvidaron que eran estrellas,
Que eran estrellas
Y brillan estrellas que olvidaron que eran estrellas,
y él entre ellas
otra vez
Track Name: Cosmic Swirl
I bought a book that came with a storm
And the sight of you framed
by the bedroom door
From where time can´t erase you

Against all predictions, the next season followed
Now I look at you as if you were a stranger
Whose lips I wore on mine

Does it matter, in this cosmic swirl
I used to wear your lips on mine?
Does it matter to this cosmic swirl?
Does it matter?

Had a mean little boy rip me into pieces
Yes, you lit firecrackers under my bed
Then left where I can’t reach you
Where you’re not mine to taste

Does it matter when it hurts
Like paper cuts inside your brains?

Does it matter in this cosmic swirl?
Does it matter?

The one who forever eluded you
Freezing in the pouring rain
Your first words starting to forget..

Does it matter, in this cosmic swirl
That it’s too late to memorize you?

Swirl, cosmic hue
If you were liquid,
I’d be drenched in you

Swirl, cosmic hue
If you made him liquid
I’d be drenched in blue
Track Name: Recuerdos de Marte
Témpano, irás al cajón que guarda el verano
En Enero logré embotellar el sol en el lago
Donde duerme mi nube, quizás
es dentro de un piano

Cierran círculos y rosas
Trato de no resbalarme y borronear
Recuerdos de Marte
Recuerdos de amarte

Témpano, irás sobre la almohada que llenan mis sueños
La luna se prende, se prende y desprende
el miedo del trueno

y en un charco tiembla el cielo
Trato de no resbalarme y borronear
Recuerdos de Marte
Recuerdos de amarte

Recuerdos de Marte
Recuerdos de amarte

Témpano, la gota que cae lenta
de aguja en aguja
es el tiempo

y el tiempo no vuelve atrás.
Track Name: Anchored in Blue
I pity the ones who never kissed you
The ones that didn’t dare
The ones that never noticed
the sunlight in your hair
But every time I see you
gets harder than the last
‘cause I know very soon
We’ll have to say goodbye

Shut the world, come through my window
The sun has set,
But not on us just yet

I pity the ones who never touched you
Who never held your hand
The ones who never promised
To love you till the end
But every time I say it,
I know that it’s not fair
Do you believe in fairytales?

I’m anchored in blue
I got you loving me
You got me loving you
But us is just a notion,
a wave in the ocean
that instead of just waving,
it dreams
Dreams

I envy the ones who’ll never get to
dive in your crying eyes
The ones who’ll never say goodbye

(I said I’d never write a love song. Oh no, that’s too corny for me.
I said I’d never write a love song, ‘cause love songs are nothing like me.
Now guess who went and wrote a love song;
I guess I’m too corny for me
And yes, it’s just a silly love song,
I lost my armor, could it be?)
Track Name: Hablo con el Viento
Entre flores pisoteadas,
las hojas corriendo van
Por veredas de ciudad,
sin saber que hay algo más

Cuando el otoño se caiga,
volveré a recordar
El crujido de las piedras
que son puente hacia mi hogar

Hablo con el viento, con el viento
Hablo con el viento y me dice
dónde va

Solo las olas demuestran
que el tiempo corriendo está
Cuando todo está tan quieto
y hay soles de metal

¿Cómo bajar la montaña
si no me quiere soltar?
¿De qué servirá este bote
sin un río que cruzar?

Hablo con el viento y me dice donde va
Hablo con el viento, con el viento

(sûl.. sûl..sûl..)
Track Name: Soundborn
The moon has a place inside,
a hiding place inside my room
Soundborn, sound-born
In the horizon

Winters aglow,
Waters stolen by the sky
Sunrise surrenders
Dripping through,
Where the river used to run

Soundborn, sound-born
In the horizon

Doorway open, One day, Someday
Into the moon

Winters aglow…

See you, I see you, the sea in you
(soundborn soundborn in the horizon)

Say you got me a hiding place..
Track Name: Sueño Viejo
Me parece un sueño viejo
Pero el sol es el mismo
Y yo también
Como sigue siendo
El sol sigue siendo
Y yo sigo siendo
Pero vos no estás

Cómo sigue siendo
Todo sigue siendo
No entiendo
No entiendo

Me parece algo imposible
Que ya no te enteres
de lo que en el mundo
de lo que en el mundo pasará

No entiendo
Yo sigo tejiendo
Tejiendo un sueño viejo
Y a vos (ya mí)
Dentro de él

Cómo sigue siendo
El sol sigue siendo
y yo sigo siendo
pero vos no estás

Cómo sigue siendo
Todo sigue siendo
No entiendo
No entiendo
Cómo sigue siendo
Como sigue siendo
Siendo siendo siendo
Track Name: Fade To Gloom
Flickering and wavering
glowing little things moving through meadows
Flickering and wavering
all through the grassy hills just after sundown

Homes within the caves in lakes
Or underneath the lily pads they wander
Shimmering reflecting all the colors
leaves them floating on the water

Behind a mask of leaves talking to mugpies
Suffer a deep longing in their absence

Been cloud-popping in a dream
With an armor so thin it couldn’t hide the wings
So many things fit in a tear
Now with you in my rear view
Everything fades to gloom

Bounces like a rubber ball
Then frozen in place ‘til dawn and undercover
He left a kiss under a rock
along with things he keeps hidden from sunlight
Among shoelaces he has taken
From the girls that gather daisies in the summer
Where the breeze wakes up the leaves
of long past falls and turns them into dancers

Forces that created universes
Say there’s more wisdom in their dance than in those pages

Breathe life in, now breathe it in
the stillness of the wind
Track Name: Trees
If you love me take me to the woods
If you love me take me to the trees
If you love me take me where the sky is blue
If you love me, set me free

Lay on the grass
the wind yearns to touch
and wave time goodbye

How will I survive with no flowers in sight?
It burns to see you blind

If you love me take me to the woods
If you love me take me to the trees
If you love me take me where the sky is blue
If you love me, set me free

Birds, what’d I do
in this cage without you
Your song lets me know trees are not just a dream

Friends, you have grown roots in my mind
I carry your swaying with me,
Here inside.

If you love me take me to the woods
If you love me take me to the trees
