Track Name: Dani Llamas - Hourglass
Hourglass

Which way to go, go with the flow
And face the consequences.
Out in the woods, bury the truth
In the grave you are digging.
I stand far from your chest,
Far from the smell of the flowers
I stand by the hourglass.
Foresee yourself lying on the clay
With a hole in your head,
Kidnap your faith, you fell in disgrace
With a crown of laurel.
I stand far from your chest,
Far from the smell of the flowers
I stand by the hourglass.
Track Name: Half a man
Half a Man.

Close your eyes, think open wide.
This city isn't you.

Dark and blind, dressed up at night
the way you never should.

Once you were a reference,
you don't know what it was
what made you change
and face the strange and slip into this hole.

You're half a riddle, half a man.
One day you'll seize the hours that you spent.

Sundays in the sun were not
a common stage of life,
do you see yourself one day pushing your children's car?

You're half a riddle, half a man.
One day you'll seize the hours that you spent.

Shame you are twisted on the floor,
tell me what you are waiting for

It's time.
Track Name: Ecstasy
Ecstasy

Forces of boredom come and get me
Angels wrapped in tunics and curly hair,
Somebody show me how can I leave
The stage is burning; the audience is jumping in like thieves.
I will figure it out sooner or later,
I will follow my only lead,
Dear to cross the line if you are so brave
And kill someone for a little ecstasy.
Champagne is running
Luxury is the easiest exit for those who condemn the grim of being.
I miss the part where we all succeed
I stood on the wasteland of everyday’s defeats, lonely.
I will figure it out sooner or later,
I will follow my only lead,
Dear to cross the line if you are so brave
And kill someone for a little ecstasy.
Forces of boredom pull me away,
Leave me undecided I’d rather faint.
Forces of boredom pull me away,
Give me the strength to fall into the gray.
Track Name: Dani Llamas - Horses in the mist
Horses in the Mist
What did she expect: accelerate our decline?
I remember when we used to hold our lives
to those conversations late at night
with a candle and no compromise.

She disappeared like horses in the mist,
Now I regret the beauty of simple things.

What’s my impulse? I didn’t know who to call
I did not cry, I was afraid, undecided.
I guess I was born and I will die this way.
I shook to think I’d never see her again.

She disappeared like horses in the mist,
Now I regret the beauty of simple things.

And my life is passing like a film is burning
Inside my eyes.
Track Name: Dani Llamas - Said and Done
Said and Done

I can live of my mistakes,
someone told me you have gone
you made your own way.

In the sky I see your name,
my throat is choked,
twilight has tinted me red.

Everything is said and done.
Will you follow? Are you alone?

It's a challenge everyday,
I feel the razor kissing the air above my hair.

Everything is said and done.

I'm not gone,
I stood still
Rescue me,
Break it in.
Track Name: Dani Llamas - Little bourgeois' blues
Little Bourgeois' blues.

I was merely a witness,
you gave me that camera,
I pictured you both
with your out-of-mouth tongues.

Two ephemeral lovers
in an ephemeral summer
that marks you forever
as it's yet to come.

Your little companion
that you overrated
is thinking you're boring
you don't want to fuck.

Decent city-sleepers
are missing the beaches
were your parents send you
you little bourgeois.

How young, beautiful, mindless you are.

Don't lie about friendship,
it's a serious business,
you swore by the fire
under blurry stars.

I know that you're wasted,
I'm cynical and older
and I always hated
the sand in my shoes.

How young, beautiful, mindless you are.
Track Name: Dani Llamas - Fate and Guns
Fate and Guns

Hello my friend, how are you?
I’m glad to see you again,
I know what I’ve been told but
I want you face to face.
Some say you have wet
The powder of your gun,
Some others call it fate
What tore our worlds apart.
I hate when you say you live your own way
I’m sorry to see you still live like I hid.
And now no holy water
would clean your dirty hands
It was a bad decision to get on, get on, get on.
Some say you have wet
The powder of your gun,
Some others call it fate
What tore our worlds apart.
I hate when you say you live your own way
I’m sorry to see you still live like I hid.
Track Name: hands to wave
Hands to wave

Now your ship is returning
‘cause the war came to an end,
I will wait at the harbor
but I don’t have hands to wave.
Maybe we waited too long,
maybe we didn’t care.
If we’re heroes or martyrs or
something in between.

I can’t remember your face,
you got my back and so you left.

Now you tell me about glory,
now that I lost my faith,
you will sink to the bottom
of my weak memory.

I can’t remember your face,
you got my back and so you left.
Track Name: Dani Llamas - Burning Again
Burning Again

Golden sun, release my rush
I'm a chain to my own pulse,
once I was a different man
I wish someday I'll bring it back.

I'm burning again
you know it's easier when you are blind.
Do you doubt it?

I'm a desert to my skull
and the viper's fang to you.
Once I was a different man
I'm too old and I am hurt.

I'm burning again
you known it's easier when you are blind.
Do you doubt it?
Track Name: Dani Llamas - A job for Patti
A job for Patti.

Patti needs a brand new job,
she’s feed up she thinks she’s lost.
Back in the days, like 10 years ago
she dreamt of riding this horse.

Through the gardens of green corn
she rides easy, she rides slow,
birds fly over, shaping her crown
she’s not coming back to town,
she won’t make it back to town.

So she fell down, fell down, so the unicorn fades out.
Fell down, deep down, she’s not coming back with us.
Fell down, fell down, deep down and out.

Birds flying over shaping her crown,
she’s not coming back to town,
she’s not coming back to town,
won’t step her feet on the ground.
Track Name: Dani Llamas - Disorders
Disorders

It's the black and the ochre,
it's the blue and the pink,
it's the purple under your eyes
and the white across your cheeks.

Disorders,
you are going nowhere,
your hands are shaking,
your words are sober,
it's not what it seems.

Say whatever's on your mind
to dignify, to leave behind whatever’s on your mind.

It's your body in the river
and the fish in a tank,
it's the never ending madness
of the shortest of the tales.

Your sources
of inspiration,
your hesitation
is flawless.
Is that what it means?

Say whatever's on your mind
to dignify, to leave behind whatever’s on your mind.

Lying on the grass you wonder,
when did everything begin?

Say whatever's on your mind
to clarify, to leave behind whatever’s on your mind.
Track Name: Dani Llamas - Make it last
Make it last

If one day I get to tell you
that I never felt inspired
listening to all the stories
that you invented for us
I applause for the effort,
I just want to shake your hand,
someone needed to be honest
you just want to make it last
you just like to see the valley
from the tallest mountain top
I came to this celebration
I should have just say goodbye.
Boundaries I’ve never cross are now my mother land
Sympathy for the unknown has now become my flag
I always was an easy child, my life was never sad,
I want to make it last.
If one day I get to tell you
that I never felt inspired
listening to all the stories
that you invented for us
I applause for the effort,
I just want to shake your hand
Boundaries I’ve never cross are now my mother land
Sympathy for the unknown has now become my flag
I always was an easy child, my life was never sad,
I want to make it last.
Track Name: Dani Llamas - No more fun
No more fun

I play with fire but I don’t get burnt.
I don’t know why I’m still in the game,
I don’t believe, so why a prayer.
Hollow inside, with no filler to
replenish the empty,
I withdraw my troops.
I will come back with a better semblance.
I know that I’m back to the start.
I know this means no more fun.
I’m sending letters to myself,
I’ll read them soon, but not today.
My willpower is a minor epic.
