Letras “Requiem for Atlas City”

Transitions

What you do? Oh! What you’ll get!?
This town now needs a revolution,
Your damn system is getting sick, and our family slowly dies…

¿Who really cares about the rules, if the town’s heart falls apart?
I know that pain is fuel…
Let it burn, let it burn!

“Our time is coming; now they try to cheat your eyes.
No time to see, no time to take a wrong direction!
Our time is coming, now they try to freeze your mind,
No time to seek, no time for transitions”

“What you do? Oh! What you’ll get!? ”
This is a mad, bad show,
Those crows are flying after me…
I’m going to crush them to the ground!
Who really cares about the rules? This town now fights with no direction.
But crows still flying after me…

Let it burn, let it burn!

Mr Marshall

Hey Mr. Marshall you better gather up your messes,
Times are so blurry… you took too long!

The town’s heart is burning; the air is really stuffy,
And these streets bleed Karma, just because…

Hear it coming; tidal waves can crush your mind,
While we are debating, people rising up,
And listen to me, as you know, you ought to run,
There’s a voice that whispers: Go! Go! Go! Go! Go!

Hear it coming; tidal waves can crush your mind,
While we are debating, people rising up, and
Listen to me, as you know, you ought to run,
There’s a voice that whispers…

Saturday’s lonely girl

Yeah! It’s Saturday night!
I know damn well, these boys and girls they just wanna to get out.
She’d like to take some purple pills; he will soon receive a call.
No, no, no, no! he told her: “Don’t call me, just knock on my door…”
So take the car and say: yeaaah!

Yeah, it’s getting near dawn,
Does anybody care?
Its Saturday night…

Out of key, your lazy heartbeat lies,
You’d like to lick the sky, but time is over!
You know it’s coming, run for refuge in the Marshall Tower!

Yeah! She’s gonna go mad, (lights dazzle her eyes)…
All of her “friends” run to the tower! And leave her alone!
Please don’t say you really loved him, tears fall off your blurry mad mind.
One day you decided to go on, and now… you wanna get out…
So get a grip and say: yeaaaaaah!

Yeah, it’s getting near dark,
Look at that lonely girl
Its Saturday night…

You take off and fly with no direction!
You’ve waited a long, long, long time. ..
You take off and fly with no direction!
You take off and fall, long way down!

Whispery song

I wonder why she chose me, past the outskirts, freed from pain.
The boys and ghetto girls thought that she’d never be the same.
But now we’re growing older in hotel rooms you can’t pay!
We almost feel the weather, skin and rain!

We could fly above the goddess eyes,
But you’re living looking for signs.
The city’s burning, and my heart goes mad…
But it’s you, who is really out of time!!!!

Creepy, old, disgusting; shots of bourbon, lime and coke.
Did you find the pleasure in expressing yourself bold?
The Boys still remember, but our hearts claim for their sake,
We’re beating bout the bushes… skin and rain!

Frozen silver stars seek the jewels that you hide … they’re my best friends,
The poison is running through your arms,
You better make a call, little baby…

Walking down the streets, looking for a place to eat, and forsake them…
The poison is running through your arms,
You better make a call, little baby…

These days


You say: “We’re done”; you start to shout, but you won’t cry
These days are gone, and all I see is gloomy night.

I’m waiting for the revolution: Atlas city’s going mad.
I’ve read that people call it “evolution”, but I call it a waste of time…

These days, I’m chasing all her lies; I wake up on the floor,
She loves the silence when I fall, right before her eyes.
This pain one day will crystalize, I’m gonna lose control;
She loves the silence when I fall…. just before I die…
Sometimes I hear them talking… people just misunderstand!
I can’t blame them, but I hate their idle minds!

I’m waiting for the revolution; Atlas city’s going mad.
I’ve read that people call it “evolution”, but I call it waste of time…

Ladies

Lady… the night has gone, I feel the pressure,
Over my heart, I hear it weeping…
Oh Lady you’re so vicious…

I saw a mirage and it made me mad,
And caused my weakness to direct my mind,
“I will not love you”, that’s what I said …
But lady…I’ve got you under my skin….

I had a wish… but no body’s waiting by your side,
And all the people say: “here they come”,
Oh Lady you’re so vicious…

I saw a mirage and it made me mad,
And caused my weakness to direct my mind,
My old emotions now they crush my pretty face,
I can’t reassure them, now I feel strange!

The truth… not really, the man is weeping,
He feels funny; he knows he’s falling down,
See my Suzie, breaking down my heart.

When you’re there, my life is fucking full of fun!
I’m feeling I am running out of time…
You scare me when you look into my eyes,
I’ve got my feelings riding by my side!

Discotheme

Hold me tight, but never ask me to slow it down,
Cause my Suzuki will fly there tonight!
The world is breaking, oh girl I won’t take it!
We gotta get there ¿How? We’ll fly there tonight!

La la la… La la la…

When you feel that the sky is falling down,
Just remember: this night is for us!
The world is breaking Oh girl I won’t take it!
We gotta get there ¿How? We’ll fly there tonight!

La la la… La la la…

I could tell you: “I’ll still be here, its fine”,
“There’s no reason to worry when sun dust dies”,
I would tell you: “this routine will make us go mad”,
But I will tell you jus one thing: no one can tear us apart!

Run, run to the mood of the music;
pick up, pick up all your powerful friends.
I’ve got a feeling, we could even reach a little bit higher!

Beyond the Seasons

I see beyond the seasons,
I hear the raging see,
The tides take over old town,
My heart is sick, but free…

Wild open spaces in front of me,
Red winged crows fly by my side,
They pray: “You’ll get your life back”
My heart is sick, but free…
I hope you all are free…

Time is cruel, and corrodes the memory room.
The history is always told by the wining fools,
My hope is blue,
The darkest blue… you could ever dream.
This color can’t be true!

Days of pain my friends all died in vain,
The books will never show the deadly bullet rain,
You’re running from the shadows that are haunting you,
But now we’re blue, this color can’t be true!

Is this the end of the war?
They’re silently falling apart!

(Chorus…)

Walls

My mother told me the difference between good and bad
But it’s my fate, and it’s filled with both things, yeah!
I’m gonna fade the path which has been left behind
Don’t worry muma, call me and I’ll tell you how.

I ought to play my fate…it seems too much!
“Too old my buddy”, that told me my friend Bobby Brown,
Who’s that guy? He asked me, who’s that guy?
Tell me, if you can, if the Reaper and the angels fly.

Are you sure you’re right?
Landscapes are full of light?
Cause all the night birds do not seem so tired…

Are you really right? I see nothing bright…
Are you really alive? I have my doubts!!

Are you ready for “Bobby Brown’s new vibrations”?
He gives all those guys who suffer; a brighter and a more hopeful day.
Are you ready? Gotta a ticket for this long, long journey?
“It’s mine! My mind is ready!”

Have you seen it? They’re singing all those past confessions:
“Boys are getting sick of courage, they’re gonna go mad like he said.
Ladies grew up, and their hearts still play old songs”.
“It’s mine! My mind is ready!” “It’s mine! My mind is ready!”

Walls!!!

You try to keep me, baby, in a rusty and dirty jail, yeah!
Like everybody’s wasting time…
But they don’t realize!

Jimmy Blaze

Verse:

Down in the streets is where I met Jimmy Blaze,
You know, white Fender, old fashioned hair…
He uses Marshall, don’t you smile,
Cause he’s convinced he’s a “Voodoo Child”!

Everybody who says that they met him feels some kind of pain,
I’m going to see the devil to make it happen,
He’ll need somebody to pray!

Jimmy Blaze!!, Jimmy Blaze!!, can’t get enough!

His blues stole me and made me cry, I really thought he was the man!
He used to play in town, but he was so sad!
One day he told me: “I’m leaving now!
You really must help to be a star!”
“Illusions never change me!”

La, la, la, la!!!

I chose that life, and lost my mind; he burned the money and broke some
hearts… “Illusions never change me!”

Let me tell you a story about someone I used to know,
That boy is called Jimmy Blaze Withe-rows,
He was my best friend, but he went insane,
He pulled the trigger, now he’s dead, lets pray:

Your inspirations, your music, your lyrics…. I hear thousand voices that
say: “Jesus Christ, don’t be surprised, you’ve become a superstar!!!”

But now you really have time! You really got me,
You really must help me!!! And now, we really got you!
You’re feeling like god! You’re feeling like: yeah yeah!!!!

I chose that life, and lost my mind; he burned the money and broke some
hearts…!

“Illusions never change me!
La, la, la, la, la!!!”
I’ll live my life, my only life, ¿where is my place? I feel so tired…
Illusions change me!
La, la, la, la, la!!!”
