GOOD BYE MY LOVE
I HAVE BEEN TOLD
THE WINTERS COLD

IT RAINS NOW AND THEN
THE STREETS ARE IN PAIRS
AND MOST PEOPLE DONT CARE

MR FAITHFUL
IF ITS FUN ITS OKAY
THATS WHY ITS THIS WAY

I WISH FOR A WISHING WELL
THIS SMOKE IS THE AIR
I BREATHE IN TIMES OF DESPAIR

ILL THINK ABOUT YOU WHEN
MY DANGEROUS HEART IS READY TO FALL APART

MY COMPOSITON IS WEAK
AND THIS DEDICATION IS ALL OUT OF TUNE
IF THIS PROPISTION REPEATS
ANY SYMPTOMS OF WANTING IT TO SOON
ILL JUST WALK THROUGH DOWN ALIDA STREET.
AND SKIPPED DOWN THE CEMETARY WHERE WE MARKED OUR PATHS

Im excersing the shadow of a new life of danger- 
hesitating not embracing this new soul.

My eyes were cut seven time with silver placed right beside my mind
so all of my dreams could be dressed in gold.

I anticipate death
crawling down skinny neck ready to strike 
the only way its ever known

leading and decieving all those fairy tales and lies
to give a proper healing for all those chakras left behind
walking towards the treasures of mold and the dampness of love

and who said i can have it all
baby come on


my eyes were cut seven times with silver placed right beside
my eyes were cut seven times with sliver placed right beside
my eyes were cut seven times with silver placed right beside
my mind.
so all of my dreams could be dressed in Gold

and who said i can have it all.
baby come on

all trees are going down (repeats)
and left with no air

Its getting cold 
way deep down in the corners of your heart
its getting old
hearing the same ol' story
and all of your pride is saving your mind
while i was sleeping in my bed
tossing and turning trying to heal just right
and you were building walls instead.

little balls of angel hair
rolled by window we both shared
you sentenced me to be broken
dance on my bones
dance

I will burn the inscence withering through night
card after card I kneel to pray
I will burn the inscence withering through night
card after card i kneel to pray

you preach about wisdom 
you talk about my spirit guides
I dream those dreams smuged in sage
Im a fragile dandelion
Im a fragile dandelion

all trees are going down
all trees are going down
left with no air

Fighting for my weary soul
who will take my corpse
who will take it home
even if its been exposed
floating through this ravaged world
intoxicated by some
and who will stand by me
as time whistles between my teeth

stone cold stray
i couldnt face the pain
deliquent and a child
i couldnt aford a smile
and magic paid my debt
cause i stole from the stars
i stole from the stars
 
these critters that dwell under my tongue
waiting to escape
i gave them all a name
hoping that they would go away
and the river flows like my sex flood
like a furious flood
i swim towards the coldest sea

where i descoverd my intimate sound
stashed in a bottle so I can talk
forgivenes laid low so low way deep in the ground
making it unable for me to walk

Ive been given these 3 eyes to be set free

stone cold stray 
i couldnt face the pain
deliquent and a child
i couldnt aford a smile
stone cold stray
i couldnt the face pain
deliquent and a child
i couldnt aford a smile

silencio porfavor
mis maneras me han hecho sufrir
cantame esta cancion
y aye dejame el sol
el si quierre vivir

aye dios
datadata
aye dios
datadata

en mi ventana
aye deje las mananas oscuras pero puras
y aye bengo con las manos frillas pero sencillas
buscando y orando con sudor
buscando

aye dios
datadata
aye dios

vamos a la playa de valor
porque mi madre ella llora
lagrimas de temor
y la santisima luna
ella me habla
me habla
ponte lista
te quiero lista y viva
baila mija baila

aye dios
datadata

Winters Skin
music & lyrics : Y La Bamba

////////////////////////////////////////////////

lets build a couple of fragile of bridges together
lets run across it and reach the sky
lets run across and meet the next hazel sunrise
its a sign of failure written all over these lonley skies
and our fortune has created time
time of exsiting in a begining
so today the sun refused to shine

sing me to sleep
oh my darlin your eyes
refused to catch my tear
sing me to sleep

lets build a kingdom in the desert
and jump up and down when it rains
and jump up and down the next time it shall rain
there's only five winds owned by the holy gods
our gods that obey
the soil soaked from the sweat dripping down the weeping ol' willow

winter is here
winter is here

and she is glowing 
with her light
embracing her strength with her final bite
winter is here

music & lyrics : Y La Bamba

////////////////////////////////////////////////

son las cositas de la vida
soy traviesa no mas para descubrir
porque me estan suplicando
no mas para joder
la lluvia me enfada

la maldita puerta de la enfermedad
y mi chiquita ella suena con la verdad

y ya todo esta empecando
tratando de conocer
las aguas venenosas

separame de esas tontedillas
y los con viven con embedia
y no quieren ririr
levantate aye bienen los vencinos
y trian sus destigos para molestar

y porque me estan suplicando
no mas para joder
y ya todo esta empecando tratando de conocer
las aguas venenosas

I'm not amused by what your mind has come to know
tragically you define what never was beautiful
worshiping intelligence
leading to spiritual ignorance
doesnt hurt?

don't play with fire
cause they will catch you arousing that whore
and babylon is tired
let her rest for she will be no more

were all out numbered
we all are

reading reading about a captain on his boat
i jump right in with a little box
in it was my final song

and the water is rising and the people are trying to figure it out
we are the lost souls of the sun
we are the children of the dark 
and the light through the magik within

were all out numbered 
we all are

forty days
and those forty nights
its where we praised the water buffalo
on my knees i've been bleeding dry
straight through the dust
this is ours.

I heard you were a courageos man
I heard you abondoned your flesh
while planting seeds of truth and stolen grace
and your spice has aroused my mind
and has left me alone wanting more
i think we are gone
i think we are gone

i see the beating of your heart
i see its brighter than the stars
i see the beating of your heart
i see the beating your stars
i see

let me tell you that were all about to crumble down down
and were all just getting older
in the union of your praying hands
have already parted
i think we are gone 
i think we are gone

i heard you were courageous man
