Track Name: Fish Eats Bird
I was walking by the ocean
I saw the waves, the waves in motion
I saw a fish eat a bird
I didn’t know why
I didn’t know why

But I’m trying to understand
What this world wants from a man
Decipher the universe
How it works?
I don’t know

I was riding, riding my spaceship
I brought with me a telescope
I was watching, watching your window
you weren’t there, you weren’t there

But I’m trying to understand
What this world wants from a man
Decipher the universe
How it works?
I don’t know
Track Name: Inside/Out
I was born with these eyes
To realize
what’s in the sky

I know I know I know
I’m not supposed to know
But I feel I feel
Something real
Out there

Look to the inside
Look to the inside
What do you see?
What do you see?

Look to the outside
Look to the outside
Are you pleased?
Are you pleased?
Oh no

I’ve got these ears
To hear
Something feared
in the air

Tiny hairs in my head
Tell me tell me tell me
My brain needs to be fed

Look to the inside
Look to the inside
What do you see?
What do you see?
Look to the outside
Look to the outside
Are you pleased?
Are you pleased?
Oh no

I’ve got these fingertips
So I can feel, f-f-f-f-f-f feel
If I am real
If I exist
Oh I fiend, I fiend for lack of gravity
Oh I’ll float, I’ll float, I’ll float away
Hey!

Look to the inside
Look to the inside
What do you see?
What do you see?
Look to the outside
Look to the outside
Are you pleased?
Are you pleased?

Oh no
Track Name: Strangers
Have you figured it out yet?
The weight, the way of the world.
Have you been able to explore the shore?
Have you been able to lift your head into the sky?

That’s where they’re hiding
While we’re here fighting nonsensical war
fills the world
blood and gore, gore
on the earth floor and

the world keeps spinning
the world keeps spinning
the world keeps spinning around the sun

the world keeps spinning
the world keeps spinning
the world keeps spinning around the sun

the world keeps spinning
the world is spinning

the alien (hello earthlings)
has traveled far
to adjust
adjust who you are

the alien (hello)
lives in my brain
but he won’t
tell me his name and

the world keeps spinning
the world keeps spinning
the world keeps spinning around the sun

the world keeps spinning
the world keeps spinning
the world keeps spinning around the sun

the world keeps spinning
the world is spinning

the scientist
is working hard
to find a cure
to cure us all

in his lab all day
trying to find a way

oh Mr. Scientist
keep working hard for us
one day you’ll find the answer
to cure us all, to cure us all, to cure us all and

the world keeps spinning
the world keeps spinning
the world keeps spinning around the sun

the world keeps spinning
the world keeps spinning
the world keeps spinning around the sun

the world keeps spinning
the world is spinning

around we go
Track Name: Llevame
Llévame donde el pan esta caliente
Llévame donde mi mamá nació
Llévame donde las quenepas crecen
Llévame donde el coquí me amanece

Tráigame una Medalla fría
con un chichaito de maní
Tráigame una sábana bien linda
que nunca quiero salir de aquí

Llévame donde está mi gente
Llévame para tocar un merengue
Llévame que quiero bailar
y el ritmo está bien, bien fuerte

Llévame

Llévame que no quiero dormir
dame pon para Bayamón
dame pon para El Escambrón
que quiero sentir ese calentón

Las nenas son bien finas en Carolina
Las mujeres con sus trajes en Aguadilla
Pero mi amor
está guardado
con Cristóbal en el Viejo San Juan

Llévame

Llévame para que me busquen en el Yunque
Tráeme un limber o un dulce
empanadilla o alcapurria
y un bistec con arroz
Llévame a la playa o a la rumba
a la bomba bajo la luna
Digale que sigan esa plena
que estoy aquí hoy sin pena
Llévame


Llévame donde viví yo
en Bairoa la 25
Moncho hace la mejor tripleta
con quesito, ¡Ay qué rico!
Los Gorditos y su mofongo
carne frita me hace baboso
sueño con estar por allá
no es ilusión sino la verdá
sueño con estar por allá
no es ilusión sino la verdá, pues

Llévame
Track Name: Come With Me
I want to be by the ocean Pacific
But the waves make me sick
I want to fly around
the silver clouds
But I don’t
Want to go alone

So come with me

I saw the earth from outer space
she reminded me of your face
breathless were my lungs
and the cat had my tongue

Such a little me but so big in your eyes

Let’s just float on by
let’s just float on by
Let’s just float on by and enjoy the ride

So come with me

I want to show you what I believe
I want to show you what lies beneath
I’ll listen to your eyes as we whisper through the time
we had to wait

I want to show you what I believe
I want to show you what lies beneath
I’ll listen to your eyes as we whisper through the time
we have to wait
we have to wait
Track Name: Dark (i)
I, I was born on the other side of the moon
I learned about the darkness all alone
I looked towards home, I realized she was gone
I, I saw a shining star from afar
She, she told me
Boy, you are not alone
Track Name: La Luna De Vigo
Luna
Si pudiera en la noche serena
Si pudiera llegar a tu estrella
y alli reposar

Luna
Yo quisiera contarte mis penas
Y sentado junto a ti
yo quisiera buscar en tus brazos
la felicidad

Te daria las mas bellas perlas
como un homenaje a tu majestad
te daria las mas bellas perlas
como un homenaje a tu majestad
Track Name: Miedo
Los días no son prometidos
Pero vente y pásalos conmigo
te enseñaré, te llevaré
para ver
dentro de mi ser

Olvídate
de lo de ayer
saltaré fuera de mi piel

yo quiero saber
déjame saber
yo quiero saber
porqué

yo no tengo miedo

Abre, abre tus ojos
deja el tiempo pasar
imagínate en un lugar
imagínate un lugar de paz

sin pelear
sin la guerra
todo juntos en esta tierra
la muerte sólo un pensamiento
porque algún día llegaremos

yo no tengo miedo

Alza, alza tu manos
hacia los cielos
hacia tu hermano

Déjale saber lo que sientes por él
a tu hermana díselo también

juntos hacia los cielos
déjales saber
el amor que tienes

porque el día llegará
que no puedas llamar
pues hazlo hoy
y hazlo sin miedo

yo no tengo miedo
Track Name: Lune
Forgive me friend
For I did not intend
to be the end
to be the end

Forgive me friend
for I wish it different
But I lost control
I lost control

She offered me the world
But I said no
She offered me the world
but I want the moon

Now I’m trapped behind her white line
trapped behind my white lies
the green pastures help me past the time
but I need to go, I need to go

She offered me the world
But I said no
She offered me the world
but I want the moon

Now the blue skies fall to the night
to the moon and to the lune
and I know soon
that you will make room
in your home, in your home

She offered me the world
But i said no
She offered me the world
but I want the moon
Track Name: Bailar
Vámonos a volar
a buscar
esé lugar

Donde los cielos
abrarán
escucharán

La música emocional
Levántate para cantar
La música emocional
Levántate para bailar

Debajo de la luna
Bailando

Me llevaré
Lo que amé
Dejaré
lo de ayer
Déjame ser quien soy
no cambiaré ni ayer ni hoy

La música emocional
Levántate para cantar
La música emocional
Levántate para bailar

Debajo de la luna
Bailando

Ahora aquí estoy
pero ya pronto ya me voy
a buscar ese lugar
para cantar para bailar


La música emocional
Levántate para cantar
La música emocional
Levántate para bailar

Debajo de la luna
Bailando
Track Name: Sparrow
I have seen the worst
of this world
Do you feel the pain?

I have read the words
of the sparrow
She flew away

Well the sparrow she showed me
hope not sorrow
she flew me into the day
of tomorrow

I have fought with, with the devil
She haunts my dreams
I have searched for light
in the Bible
I’ve yet to see the s(u/o)n

While the devil she haunts me
I open my window
to let in the light
and save me
from the pit
Track Name: Jellyfishing feat. Ceschi
Spit on the ground today
It's all a contribution to the planet
Spread that DNA
And realize we'll never understand this
Paint bigger pictures
Plant Seeds in wet soil
Bleed blood red and blue
Dream a dream
Of
Spilled oil


Everything combined is a frightening beautiful sight
And I'm hoping to learn to appreciate simplicities of life
the fact that I get to run my fingers through your hair at night and
Then put em in the sky
As High as my body allows
Yes I think I'm breathing

think ThaT We've got every single thing we need
Plus countless things we never needed
that's an incredible thing

Yet we will spend lifetimes convinced we're needing
dreaming of immortality
When our cycle's phenomenal as it is

No holograms will fix it
No Cryogenically frozen billionaire bodies
Will answer our questions

So live it up
We are dirt
Microscopic specs within the universe

That was A bit of a toast
to human self awareness
Now I'm ghost
