Nexo Eterno

Despertar en las mañanas con un loop de "Everybody wants to rule the world" era cosa de casi todos los fines de semana.
Como una suerte de tradición, él escuchaba una y otra vez aquella canción de Tears For Fears. La colocaba desde su reproductor de música y con el volumen a todo dar, con tal de que las murallas retumbaran con los bajos y todo el departamento se sumergiera del mismo sentimiento que él sentía cada vez que le daba play.
Era agradable, siempre tuvo un buen gusto por la música. Sin embargo, hace 4 años que las murallas dejaron de retumbar.
En los primeros meses de bloqueo olvidé por completo mis mañanas musicales, hasta que un poco de tiempo después pude recordar la tradición. Un día de fin de semana, jugando Bioshock Infinite con un buen amigo, me topé con la versión oldie de la emblemática canción.



Un videojuego que me gusta mucho, el estilo oldie de música y su canción favorita del conjunto, todo confluyó en un momento perfecto.
Esa noche, la escuché una y otra vez.

Welcome to your life, there's no turning back,
Even while we sleep,
We will find you acting on your best behavior
Turn your back on mother nature
Everybody wants to rule the world

It's my own desire, it's my own remorse.
Help me to decide.
Help me make the most of freedom and of pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

There's a room where the light won't find you
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do, I'll be right behind you
So glad we've almost made it
So sad they had to fade it
Everybody wants to rule the world

I can't stand this indecision, married with a lack of vision
Everybody wants to rule the world

Say that you'll never, never, never, never need it
One headline, why believe it?
Everybody wants to rule the world

All for freedom and for pleasure
Nothing ever lasts forever
Everybody wants to rule the world

Una noche de lluvia

Fue una noche de lluvia suave.
Caminaba por las pequeñas calles de mi ostentoso barrio, mientras lentamente dejaba volar mi día y me negaba a abrir el paraguas que se balanceaba de una de las correas de mi ligera mochila universitaria. Dejé que las gotas calleran sobre mi sin preocupación alguna, pues era ese momento en donde debía sumergirme en la profundidad de mi ser.
Había sido un día extraño y difícil, el cansancio se apoderó lentamente de mi en la medida que daba pasos torpes por los charcos de agua. Pero al cabo de unos minutos, se dio aquella convergencia de eventos perfecta, aquella que da un vuelco de 180º a todo lo que podrías estar sintiendo.
El reproductor de música que me había regalado mi padre, decidió tocar una canción de forma aleatoria de una lista 17.851 temas.
Las calles se tornaron silenciosas, pues aquellos vehículos que siempre pasaban, por algún motivo, ya habían llegado a sus destinos.
Me detuve un momento para dejar que las gotas cayeran directamente sobre mi rostro, limpiando y confundiéndose en mis ojos.
Finalmente, respiré.

Ethereal Realm


http://www.rmichelson.com
  
Walk alongside the river
Crystalline waters flowing with you
Travel away from the wastelands
Left everything behind
Don't even look back
A journey to the sea
Where everybody is free

Follow the wind
Hear it as it calls your name
Over the mountains, over the shore

The young tree slowly dies
Its twisted roots won't hold him up
Call upon the angels
Call upon the saviours
Their falling feathers will cover the skies
Fill the soil with life
And regrowth the roots under the ground

Follow the wind
Hear it as it calls your name
Over the mountains, over the shore
 
Everyone will follow
It's just a matter of time
You'll get there, and your brothers too
Just follow the river
Don't even look back
A journey to the sea
Where everybody is free

La lluvia esperada.

... y mientras miraba arrodillado la lápida adornada con flores marchitas, dijo:

"Papá, ya soy kinesiólogo..."

Y comenzó a llover.

Halls of reflections


Waves reverberating through the glass halls
A labyrinth reflecting infinite shapes of your own
Scream to the images, make them tremble
Shatter the walls of your extinction
Release yourself from yourself

Echoes travelling far away
Enveloping every corner of the architect’s creation
A fragile structure extending to the horizon
The product of your self-judgment and denial
Don’t hesitate, meditate, resolve anguish

Deafening whispers consuming the air by the same source
Drilling deep inside the mind at high frequencies
Disrupting the flow of the sub-conscious
Take a deep breath, rewind the time
Unleash the energy and break your reflections

Shine bright like the burning sun
Don’t let it freeze, kindle the flame that sets you in motion
Walk through the halls as they shatter
Leave the broken pieces behind, follow the trail to the horizon
Find yourself, free yourself, release the hate

Once the halls remain as fragments of the past
Take these broken wings and follow the sun
Start living this life
Start feeling alive
Take the way back home… break down

Addicted



Kiss every wound inflicted by you
Let the poison mix with my blood
Addicted to the pain these wounds will remain open
Immolate every part of me
As I'm dragged to the oceans depths

Oh, you make me so hollow
Why can't you show me your true colors?
Drug me
Make me
Fool me
Kill me once again
Shattered I'm addicted to your pain

I'm the one bound to the other
Slowly extinguishing my soul
I cripple myself and refuse to move away
Trying to lay rest and fill the void in my heart
Watching the fake image of my eyes

Oh, you make me so hollow
Why can't you show me your true colors?
Your voice
Your heart
Your soul
I need them once again

Going deeper and deeper, I'm choking
You got the right to choose
And as we grow old
We'll never know how it could've been
It's a tale that will remain in the depths

Oh, you make me so hollow
Why can't you show me your true colors?
Drug me with your voice
Make me with your heart
Fool me with your soul
Kill me as I need you once again

It is said it's a matter of time
"Stop thinking with your mind"
"Soon you'll be released from this ache"
"And everything will start over again"
Yet I won't let it go

Tear the utopia






Crying over a dead tree
We pray to a fake god
The consequence of our own selfishness
Watch me as I tear the utopia apart

As we smile we choke among the crowd
Overwhelmed by everything
Overwhelmed by everyone
Repeat after me: “You are happy and free”

Don’t fail, don’t cry, you’re not allowed to die
Until you put a brick on the colossus
Concrete giants to protect us
And to reach the glory of the skies

Just for a moment
Until the first souls falls to the ground
Gather around him
As another one tries to take the spot

The cycle renews
There’s nothing to do
We are leaving a scar
And soon we’ll be falling too

You know the truth, now you’ll erase me
Keep walking and smile
The blindfold in your eyes
Will save you from watching our extinction
