Track Name: Friend Zone
figure of your damp face on my mind
your glance thread like wine into my spine
i did use the friend zone back in time
now, it haunts me, i said why oh why?

please do hear me,
here i am, i dare to explain.
here's my reason,i dont want you to go away

hear my heartbeat, and stomp of the drum
lingering echo of the unknown
i wish i could take back everything ive done
and how can i live if you are gone

oh lady, im sorry,
im just afraid id hurt you
of this mind of mine, and my shenanigans

oh baby im sorry,
im just afraid id hurt you
of this mind of mine, and my shenanigans


it is not the movies were we rewind and go back
it is life where we all move on
Track Name: Markdown For Silent Time
silent time's define
when our thought's intertwine
whisper no more than
what a silly boy like me
laughing about a water lily

random laughter we had,
on the most cheesy stuff
no issues between us
we're just friends so they know
no more than no less or so

the way you talk it transfix me
you scolded me , like my mother
the twist of your tongue, enunciate
the words of advice you say,
but always you are

a mystery of life itself
a wonderful gift to me
Track Name: Stillness
spoken words by Eshar
As I close my eyes I remember, everything that went before.
The sound of laughter and of tears.
Sometimes I thought the tears would never end
But often at that very moment, the good times would come around again.

And now there will be no more good times.
There will be no more you or me; no more of anything.
And the only thing that makes it bearable, is that I spend these last moments here with you
One final smile, One final kiss.
Farewell my love, my life.


===


a specimen of shadow times
gyrates on my desires
the message of your timeless smile
peculiar as the black sky

you stormed me thru the night
left by morning with my heart
closeness of your hands
grabbed and threw me as you dive


you are devotional
the one i call divine
in my equation, you are the undefined
no solution, could spell your glowing sight
no conclusion, to the essay you made me write


a specter on my door
"a catch me if you can"
supplanted the peace of mind
the calm before the storm
enigmatic pilot-tone
esta es su historia


you stormed me thru the night
left by morning with my heart
closeness of your hands
grabbed and threw me as you dive
Track Name: Promise Me The Wonder Years
the best way to see the sun
is to look into your eyes
and brown complexion
and it took me down to some 50's movie setting sight

i thought ive seen the best of you
but i was wrong
it was not on the outside but i said "rather in your heart"


the way you color your words on the paper
the girl you have drawn on the month of november
its funny to think ive thought i knew you


i used to be sunny, till the the day i met you
you became my sunlight and the wisp on my shoulder
ive thought i knew you back before i met you
but it all came down

coda:
and all i want to know and see is that you're safe and warm at

all
i dont mean to disturb the sense of urgency on things you do
a little word of affirmation wouldn't hurt you
you don't need to ignore me, all you need is to tell me,
"please walk away from me, im not amused"
Track Name: Soon She'll Know And See
we say we are predominantly
invincible immeasurably
and yet in emotion
we die and we bleed
our spirit and ego
it's only skin deep


i see you and your symmetry
adjacent to the make believe
the world is a bliss as you lie and you kiss
dont forget the backstory you lying prick

they are the diggers of diamonds and gold
self proclaimed savior, devil and whore
i understand why you are turning away
but it hurts me more than the world can say

forgive me if it's blasphemy
to your purchased fidelity
i say this with love and candor my dear
hope it's not too late
Track Name: We Toast Our Glasses to Better Days
bright colored paint stain and grease
wrap of gum paste on your kicks
we kids we never listen to what mother say


we play and sing about anything
oh And pray To God before we sleep
we go to sunday school before the preacher preach


those memories, melodies, submarines of litany
as i close my eyes

the colorful, wonderful birthday wish
forgotten names, of old times


im twenty five and not eigteen anymore oh how sweet
life has been
im glad to see my friends are here, and i love you all!


i may not be what i had been.
a man with life of a libertine
please say you wont forget me
when time passed us all

those lovely days and idle times
smithereens of memories, kept in my mind
the funny cloud, 02 smoke to laugh
black cauldron, epitome of great summer times

chor
we toast our glass to better days
and somewhere peace and quiet
lets grab our cane of destiny when old age comes to town

those memories, melodies, submarines of litany
as i close my eyes

the colorful, wonderful birthday wish
forgotten names, of old times
++
submarine, litany, black cauldron
colored paint stain and grease, common paste

kids never listened to what mother say
we play and sing about anything, and pray to God
those memories and melodies, submarines of litan
Track Name: Brevity
maze and wisdom, life on the floor
no way we can decipher them all
either we go through its doors
or we could be, lost amongst all?


i guess i am tired to see all what's in store?
i dont have all day so spare me the bore


we work all day, to earn and to eat
ironic is it to forget how to live?
i miss coffee, the guitar and the dreams
of our immense procrastination


i guess we're too old to look at it all?
those things we do under the moon and the tree

i guess i am tired to see all what's in store?
i dont have all day so spare me the bore


someday we'll all love again
we'll all fall in love with the our life to the world and her blushing cheeks, i could be wrong but i dare to believe


somewhere we'll find life again, it could be there in the
cornerstone in the music scene, i parlay my heart cuz i dare to believe
Track Name: Summer Rooftop Syndrome
how i wish im there before
back when things seem nice and tall
summer time of love and friends
seem we miss it more and more

she was there when life was free
no job no insecurities
meandering in spell of uncertainty
when im almost gone you saw me

im gone

but you are sunlight
the shining story
that created all my good melodies
recreate me back from one

you remind me of sunshine
the god of lifetime
that yearned back all my good memories


all the clouds are close right now
and all the light that leads to you
but im happy you still saved me,the better man i used to be
Track Name: The Pincher And The Sleeper
he pincher and the spinster (daylight)
words and music: miguel montero

breeze time and letters
reminds you of your mindless little friend
(you are)

you and your freedom are captain
inside your wasteful sleigh
(she was right there inside)

i grabbed your hand in your sinking ship
you're there behind, but your eyes are stitched
you pinched me gently and uttered "it's alright, darling."

your eyelids of roses
are fangs of my mundane days
(slowly etching their marks,
but i rather have it than not have you..)

i pray for salvation, oh help us
someone from above
(only bees can hear us now
and the old spinster down the stall)

i grabbed your hand in your sinking ship
you're there behind, but your eyes are stitched
you pinched me gently and uttered "it's alright, darling."

chor:
Hold me darling, we'll sail away
away from this big mess

a lighter and a firefly
will guide us until this journey ends

you wrapped your arms like a snow
around my skin. "it's cold, i know."
you kissed me softly and uttered "im alright, darling"

the waves came crashing
smashed against our tiny paper ship
(hold me tight, dont go")
i pray for salvation, oh help us
someone from above
(only the wind can hear us now
and the old dark sea awaits us all)

grabbed your hand in your sinking ship
you're there behind, but your eyes are stitched
you pinched me gently and uttered "it's alright, darling."

chor:
Hold me darling, we'll sail away
away from this big mess

a lighter and a firefly
will guide us until this journey ends

ref to end:

i turned around to look for you
all was lost, none but fog
i believe the sea swallowed the girl I loved....
Track Name: Spiels And Colored Meteor Shower
spiels and a colored meteor shower
words and music by miguel montero

you're a gift sent from above
I'd like to say you're the one I'm in love
I can stay awake in a million days
just by staring at your pretty face

i hope we are together now
so we can talk,walk endlessly
we wont mind if there's a meteor shower
or a panda on the street

cause he/she's my most beautiful smile
my eternal sunshine
that brightened my dark days

although he/she's lightyears away
i hope she's here when i wake up from my dream

ill cross the Nile river with you
walk on foot from Brazil to Peru
ill be the one to untie your shoe
and you can rest your head on my shoulder too
Track Name: Same Old
she burns my sight
faster than the speed of light
i heard her cry
then earth begins to die

she blew my mind and senses
with her catwalk pretenses
as she dance i burn among
the leaves of my fallen self

yet she's my life
she owns my night
i dont know why


bitter bit my spine
little love she's mine
same old, same signs
ourselves are not divine

she killed my life
she drowned my night
now i know why
Track Name: Memory Of A Madman
memory of a madman

see the pristine, pretty sully
oil spill on your honey


frown like cinders, a man on a mission
soon will rise cuz youre funny

ref:

smiles are brighter, when i choose to be the dreamer


your stars your stains, the pride and the flame
diffuse the world thats made of clay

the price we pay, to know the truth
is fire and wine, as we fade away


lose the mountain on your easy listening
thread like trending money

a life on a lighter ,we burn like paper
you seem like my hearbreak


ref:
they are standing, people smiling
hey there, quit laughing,
hey wait, you're funny!
(one two three four, seven people on the door)



your stars your stains, the pride and the flame
diffuse the world thats made of clay

the price we pay, to know the truth
is fire and wine, as we fade away


ooohh hooo,...

abort your mission, astronaut's down
cuz his ship fades like honey

crowd of people, empty brains and mouthful
put the mind where the mouth is

pre chorus
we fade away down to the storm
and like astray news today

and somewhere there, between heaven and hell
the trace dark, of your dark long hair

the price we pay, to know the truth
is fire and wine, as we fade away
