NEW LATITUDES – LYRICS

The shade of fear
under the sun
There’s no peace here
but war of silence

Leaves scars

Wasted strength I missed
The wrath built up inside
Run against the wind
that tries to push me aside
Surrounded dreams by the threat
of the thorn
Scorched earth that someday
will revive

Leaves scars

Wasted strength I missed
The wrath built up inside
Run against the wind
that tries to push me aside
Surrounded dreams by the threat
of the thorn
Scorched earth that someday
will revive

And, turned the world upside down,
it changes what we all know
The tiny finger hid the moon
but points us where to go now
And, before ashes turn to ashes,
life will turn to life
The human equation
The truest lie

The human equation

Nobody knows
Nobody knows nobody
Nobody knows
Nobody knows nobody

Secrets don’t die
Just sleep in a lie
The hidden me
The real side

Nobody knows
Nobody knows nobody
Nobody knows
Nobody knows nobody

Where the doors are closed
And the flame of guilt is still alive
The defining fears
It’s the mask behind the mask

Secrets don’t die
Just sleep in a lie
The hidden me
The real side

Nobody knows
Nobody knows nobody
Nobody knows
Nobody knows nobody

Where the doors are closed
And the flame of guilt is still alive
The defining fears
It’s the mask behind the mask

Everybody… has a secret…

Nobody knows
Nobody knows nobody
Nobody knows
Nobody knows nobody

Overwhelmed
by the infinity of time and space
and all that’s left behind
Oh, tell me
Have you ever felt the universe
can fit in your hand?

So far, so close
The balanced paradox

Overcome
by the calculated chaos
and its reasons and its games
No, don’t tell me
that we’ll never be divided
‘cause we’re all passing stars

We’re all passing stars

Perspective
is everything

En noches como ésta, la eternidad
se mece lentamente
y, en el espejo, a un tiempo, mi otro yo
me mira, frente a frente

Overall,
we’re the winning tickets
in a lottery of fate
And I don’t want to remind you
we’re the necessary losers
in a sempiternal race

So far, so close
The balanced paradox

How many thoughts can be hidden
in a blink?
How much sense can you find
in a sigh?

November
Remember
the howling
of nightmares
that turn
into a sough

Words get broken
and wheel around
The world keeps turning
Complete black out

In the mouth of madness
we’ll meet again to light
the darkened path to sanity
In the shade of sadness
we’re waiting for a signal
to write the timeless memories

Eject your soul
Descending skies
Out of context
on a cloudy line
Caught in the middle
The last endeavor
for the final stand

One step further
to fall and then re-climb
the wall of fears and dreams
before we die

In the mouth of madness
we’ll meet again to light
the darkened path to sanity
In the shade of sadness
we’re waiting for a signal
to write the timeless memories

[Instrumental]

Lost in a spiral that leads you to nowhere
Who has turned out the lights?
Confusing direction
to aim for an inflection point
The start of an era
The first of an untouched hope

And, as you choose to hide,
the path is out of sight
What I regret the most
were the things I didn’t try

There’s no glamour in death
Believe my words, my friend
And life awaits the brave
To those with intention
Pay with your pain
But claim for your gain

Time is calling
Hear its warning
Light fades out
as years pass you by
Wasted days, wasted nights
Don’t waste your time
Just play your role
in this theatre of life

Wake up the beast inside
Finding a cause of pride
I got strong with wrongs
that taught me what is right.

There’s no glamour in death
Believe my words, my friend
And life awaits the brave
To those with intention
Pay with your pain
But claim for your gain

You can’t hear the warning
Sirens’ chant is getting loud
Burn the prayers, burn the morals
Burning bridges, blinding sun

Wonder
No longer
The answer is
the question

And all I’ve got
is what you see here
Some piece of pride
and a license for dreaming
Left my hate behind
Burden laid aside
And someday
Time will tell

Time will tell
And complete the open script
It’s the logic
of forgiveness
against the sickness of conceit

Wonder
No longer
The answer is
the question

And all I’ve got
is what you see here
Some piece of pride
and a license for dreaming
Left my hate behind
Burden laid aside
And someday
Time will tell

The lie of god is the lie of men
that run away from the consequences of their acts,
that renounce their creative genius,
that transform their freedom into their prison

When the world turns to farce
and the blind claim to see
The rest keep silent
and fear is the key

The soul collector’s on the loose
Exchanging reason for oblivion
Enslaved to sin, tighten the noose
Low-cost absolution, ethics execution

Religion takes the floor
Science is muzzled
They try the lie one thousand times told
dressed up as truth

Rationale finds shelter in the catacombs
of this society
installed in self complacency
Narcollective

Beyond smoke and mirrors
we will find our true selves

And I don’t want your sad life
’cause i’ve learned that faith is not hope
No need for hell or heaven
I believe in you and me
And that’s enough
to feed my soul

[Instrumental]
