Track Name: The Endless Sound Of Greatness
The Endless Sound Of Greatness
By Eric Taylor Escudero

All the lights they shine so bright
All that you´ve created
Everyone is out there tonight
Oh, our love has faded

So won´t you dance with me tonight
To the endless sound of greatness
The snow´s covered our town in white
Someday we will be famous

And I know
It´s our best piece of art
Yeah, you know
A mistake from the start
That we´re selling for you


Another way to get high
A true peace of mind
Another bench you can sit
And watch the world pass you by

It´s your best woken dreams
A romantic scene
It´s the world as it seems
From the eyes of a stranger
Track Name: We Were Young And It Was Morning - Part 1
We were young and it was morning - Part 1
By Eric Taylor Escudero

It was a craft shop in a little town lost in the mountains
I said "only you can take me back in time
Only you can take me back"

In a craft shop in the road that might just take me home
Today the rain´s become my sweet companion
Today the rain´s become my closest friend

And the common question is "where d´you come from?"
The common mistake is to soon be gone.

She said "I never seen your face, you must be cold, you must be lost
Only the ones who live here walk these streets
You must be wrong, you must be lost"

Time passes slow far awar from all the crowd
There´s loneliness in being part of millions
The loneliness in never being alone

The common question is "Can we just go?"
When we were about to call this place our home

She said "I never seen your face, you must be cold, you must be lost
Only the ones who live here walk these streets
You must be wrong, you must be lost"

So how does it feel to walk alone?
To be one thousand miles from home?
I lost myself inside your eyes
I wish you´d take me back in time

So how does it feel to walk alone?
Now you´re one thousand miles from home?
I wrote this song to freeze the time
And have you always by my side.
Track Name: Fountains of Blood
Fountains of Blood
By Eric Taylor Escudero

The only thing that´ve ever expressed your thoughts better than your words were your eyes
You said there was no distance that could keep you, no distance between yourself and winter skies
Ideological isolation was the only gorge no one could ever cross

You said the rain was good for writing
So there you stood writing in the rain
You said the rain was good for writing
In the streets downtown
Where the tourists stand

You said I worry about you baby though I don´t believe that you lack any will
But when you don´t know where to go to, it´s much more likely you´ll stand still

You said the rain was good for leaving
So there you stood disappearing in the rain
You said the rain was good for leaving
In the streets downtown, no one knows your name

So we´ll make fountains of blood
And take a photograph
It´s just inside of us
We all live in the past
Track Name: At The Very End Of Everything
At the very end of everything
By Eric Taylor Escudero


I came to this place
At the very end of everything
And I saw your face
With sad eyes and a half smile

I came to this place
And everyone was celebrating
The end of the world in their own way

Dear bright star I´ve always loved you
Dear bright star I always knew you´d leave
But you shone last for me

I came to this place
At the very end of everything
So we drink to this day
And to all the ones that´ll never

I came to this place
It was crowded when I first came
Still I chose a nice spot
To watch all fall

Dear bright star I´ll always love you
Dear bright star I always knew you´d leave
But you shone last for me

Oh, the light that makes your eyes bright
Is the same light that makes you blind
I am lost forever in time
I´ll keep one eye open tonight

Cause I am watching
As you are leaving
And I´ll be singing
About this forever
I painted a picture
Of you leaving
It was just like this
Except for the gray skyline
Track Name: Before The Dew
Before the Dew
by Eric Taylor Escudero

Before the dew became the drought
Before the dream became the thought
Before the dawn became the day
And we had lost to words to say

Before the boys became the men
And embrace a life they could not stand
Before the colours of the dusk
Became the gray that covered us

Emily won´t you write me letters
Light the gardens of our youth
And warm with southern shiny eyes
The frosty mornings around you

Before the dew became the drought
Before the dream became the thought
Before the dawn became the day
Now we have lost the words to words to say

Before young boys join the strive
And join the ones that they should fight
Before the colours of the sky
Became irrelevant and meaningless

Emily won´t you write me letters
Light the gardens of our youth
And warm with southern shiny eyes
The frosty mornings around you
Emily won´t you write me letters
Light the gardens of our youth
One frosty morning in your presence
Is worth a life of summer moons
Track Name: Black River
Black River

So the future is the sea approaching the land
In a cloudy afternoon
Surrounded by friends
Some strangers and you

So the future is your face turning into mine
In this decaying faceless world
Surrounded by friends
That don´t hear your words

Where everybody has no name
And everybody dies alone

So the future is the wind blowing cold
It blows down your town made of cards
It´s such a lovely day
Such a sky full of stars

Still everybody has no name
Everybody dies alone
Track Name: Waiting For The Sun To Come
Waiting For The Sun To Come
by Eric Taylor Escudero

So it´s alright you don´t know me
You know tonight they´ll star looking for me
But they won´t find us
No they won´t find us

One minute is too short when we´re dying
But it takes one life in this silence
Lost in your eyes
Lost in your life

So don´t start telling jokes or old love stories
Of a remote past, our forgotten glory
That´s gone for so long
It feels like so long since yesterday

When you had to make this so much harder
You love feeling you have no ground to fall on
You had to make this so much harder

A day becomes a day when the sun shines brighter
Than all the darkness that surrounds her
We´re waiting for it
We´re waiting for the sun to come
We´re waiting for it

Because when the sun comes back you´ll feel much better
And when it leaves I hope it won´t take the letters
That you wrote for me
That you wrote with your heart
That you wrote for me

You said life flies by in different shades of light
And you´ll live it like a bag in the wind
Waiting to be blown high

It´s romantic, it´s a movie
It´s romantic, it´s a tidal wave
It´s romantic, it´s a movie
And sometimes it´s more than I can take

Still it makes life beautiful
You look so beautiful
It makes life beautiful
You look so beautiful tonight.
Track Name: The Uncountable Colours Of The Sky
The Uncountable Colours Of The Sky
by Eric Taylor Escudero

“There´s no reason to be leaving”
It was already gone
There was no reason to believe it, i was already running
“Oh darling, what are you running from?”

In the beach we spend our summers looking at the sky
In a spectacle of life the day was fighting the night

And we saw uncountable colours

There´s a difference between what we see and what things are
Specially when what we see is our reflections in the mirror
And your eyes see the reflection of your mind
Your eyes bring out what is inside

Inside was a tropical tree that was so much older than me
Though the flowers were all pink
Some of them would bloom white
Or any other colours we chose
So many other colours we chose

And we saw uncountable colours
And we saw uncountable colours
We saw for once and forever
And we saw uncountable colours
Track Name: Big City Lights
Big City Lights
by Eric Taylor Escudero

So long,
So lonesome
Gone with so much to do
And brother
As you´re leaving
I realize how much i´m stuck

Cause you´re free forever
Cause your fears have never trapped you
Cause you´re older than me
In the things that you choose

So when you come back
Will you tell me what life is like
Outside the big city lights
Where we were born

The problem
With constant laughter
Is the problem with constant tears
The only use for them
Is showing our most intolerable despair

And to make all this money
I´ve lived the most empty life
I spent all my money
Trying to forget it

What are the words that I should say
Before kissing your mouth
Before asking your name
Before saying i´m sorry for both of us

So when you come back
Will you tell me what love is like
Outside the big city lights
Where we were born

You say sometimes you´re sorry
For all the things you know
For never belonging
Cause you know that all is wrong

You said you had to leave
To remember what life is like
Outside of the gates
Of the tyranny of mankind


That have trapped us helpless
That have locked us blind
You shouldn´t believe everything you see
But you should believe me

So when you come back
Will you tell me what freedom is like
Outside the big city lights
Where we were born
Track Name: The Spinning of The World
The Spinning Of The World[
by Eric Taylor Escudero

So I said baby you´re the best
She said “go with all the rest
There´s nothing here for you, though you really don´t need much
You can go, but will you just keep in touch”

I said “I need sometime alone
I guess i have found a new home
I´ll spend some days there, them i´ll come back and take you
We can live our lives just like we wanted to”

“I´ve spent some thought, I think I´m right
We seem to be two of a kind
And though we´re not, sometimes we seem so far away
From all the faceless crowd that has nothing to say

And she said “Oh, you´re such a fool”

“But I´m so much like you”


I write songs but i can´t sing
And I guess I was just being mean
When I said the things that i just said to you
I wasn´t serious and most of them weren´t true

You know once i was someone
This introspective writer kind
But now i just write all this names on the walls
Hoping for the day this land will finally fall

And I write “Oh, you´re all so wrong”

“And I just though you should know”


I´ve never really gone too far
I´ve never really tried too hard
All the days they just passed flying through my eyes
And in my apathy you see the marks of time

I´ll try to hold the winter back
I know some people who´ve done that
And for all days I will be following their steps
If you decided to be, you should be the best

But snow falls down eventually
And turns white all the things you see
And If the spinning of the world has left you sick
It´s spinning faster everyday, be sure of it

We all die so young.
Track Name: We Were Young And It Was Morning - Part 2
We Were Young and It Was Morning part 2
by Eric Taylor Escudero

Darling, what´s it inside your eyes?
There must be something wrong
As if they lost their light

We´ll return
To the summers gone
Well it is summer now
In the streets we owned

Where the sun shone much brighter than today
And we were young and it was morning
The sun shone much brighter than today
And we were young and it was morning

It was dawn (the) dawn
It was the spring of time
Because the world began
When we first opened our eyes

We were one
With the shade of trees
With the city nights
With southern cloudless skies

And the sun shone much brighter than today
For we were young and it was morning
And the sun shone much brighter than today
When we were young and it was morning

Well it is gone
It is now
Did you see someone pass outside our house at (last) night
So now
We give it all away
We throw it all away

It was dawn dawn
All the world was new
There was nothing wrong
We never sang the blues

And the sun shone much brighter than today
For we were young and it was morning
And the sun shone much brighter than today
For we were young and it was morning
The sun shone no brighter than today
But we were young and it was morning.
