Cathartic Conundrum

HEALING

Verse 1

I fall into a routine and never let it go,
That's just me, that's just the way that I flow
Tormented timed agendas bring me closer to the finish line
A needle in a haystack they told me I should find,
Guess healing's not easy to come by,
Till then I wallow through the seams that I've
Stitched up together many times

Pre-Chorus

Oh, none of life is temporary
Though some of it's preliminary
For all the things you're gonna fix and want to change again,
Improve upon the hate you've barricaded yourself in,
Quit thinking that you'll never win
You won't by numbing up with gin

Chorus

Healin', healin', healin' hurts,
Healin', healin', healin' hurts,
Feelin', feelin', feelin' makes me burst

Verse 2

My room was full of empty, I didn't know what to do,
But now I write songs and cook myself food,
I feel lonely in a mob, I just want to be alone,
Cuz now I can breathe in my own home

(Pre-Chorus)

(Chorus)

Bridge

There's a muscle that I exercised more often than one should,
That's why I'm not desensitized so I guess that is good,
That salt of my tears has healed all my woulds,
My witness is fear, but it's leavin' soon

(Chorus)

Listen

Verse 1

I anticipate the changes in this country will attempt to get me out of here,
And I meditate to mediate the hatred that I navigate in daily.
Then I levitate out of this planet I have tried so hard to heal,
I just dance and shake like the earthquakes that evict me from where I reside.

Pre-Chorus 1

And even though I am a love child,
The music that I make won't be mild,
And I scream loud at protests and no, it's not a contest,
But I'm hoping that together we get listened to.

Chorus

Listen to me,
To the words that I say,
I've got a reason to stay,
What you're doin' is not okay.

Verse 2

The sky precipitates the truth that we seem to be immune to.
The Earth's rotations cause my palpitations to accelerate,
Time, please accelerate.
And even though I want to skim through the next four years,
I refuse to live my lovely life in absolute fear.

Pre-Chorus 2

And how many numbers have we dialed,
Yes, the efforts that we've made are worthwhile,
I still scream loud at protests and no, it's not a contest,
But I'm hoping that together we get listened to.

(Chorus x2)

Bridge

And I advocate for people without homes,
Convocate the people that I know,
To help me help humanity grow,
I cry for visas that have been rejected,
Citizenship's been neglected to
People who've been here much longer than you.

(Chorus x2)

Soledad

 

Verse 1

Entré a mi casa con luz apagada
Habían luciérnagas enredadas
Oí un suspiro muy agotado
Toque una lagrima a mi costado

Pre-chorus

No se como hacer consuelo y suelo evitar
Tus lagrimas entre sábanas que desembocan en el mar

Chorus

Sentir soledad
Siempre pasa al cambiar de edad
Algo dejas atrás
Y sabes que no volverá más
Solamente quiero llorar
Y desbordar el contenido de mi mar
Solamente quiero llorar
Y desbordar el contenido de mi mar

Verse 2

La soledad puede ser contagiosa
Pero eso dice que vamos acompañadas
Tenemos nuestros propios mundos
Anudamos nuestros propios nudos
Pero andamos en la misma soga

(Pre-chorus)

(Chorus)

Bridge

I see you cry
I don’t know why
I have no words for you
I don’t know when to shut up
I never say enough
I wish that I knew better
But I guess that comes with age
I guess that’s a good thing that comes with age
That comes with pain
That comes with change
But in the meantime

Chorus in English

Feelin’ loneliness
Always happens at a change of age
You leave something behind
And you know that it will not return
All I ever want to do is cry
And spill out the ocean of my eyes
All I ever want to do is cry
And spill out the ocean of my eyes


Verse 1 Translation:

I entered my room with all the lights out
There were tangled fireflies all about
I heard a very exhausted breath
I felt a tear by my side

Pre-chorus Translation:

I know not how to console you and I tend to avoid
Your tears tangled in bed sheets that open out into the sea

Verse 2 Translation:

Solitude can be quite contagious
But that means that we accompany each other
We have our own worlds
We tie our own knots
But we walk on the same tightrope

 

*Spanish chorus translates to the chorus sung in English

RELICS & DREAMS

 

 

Relics and dreams
Unopened seams
Seems like there's something hiding
There's a shadow within
Will darkness win?
There's a light that shines through my closed eyelids.

 

I know sometimes I forget that shadows are a reaction to the past.
That my memories transform when I recount anecdotes that I thought were meant to last.

 

I know now
That life changes
That if you're living inside your little box you're not alive
You'll never grow

 

Out of relics and dreams
Unopened seems
I want that thing that's hiding
Secrets revealed
Wounds never heal
When you see your obscured
Reflection.

 

I know sometimes I'm a flower that drops down before the season comes to an end.
That my seeds and petals face the new life I had when my spine was not all this bent

 

And I know now
That life changes
That if you're living inside
Your little box
You're not alive
You'll never grow.

 

Relics and Dreams
Unopened seams
Why is there something hiding?


Traducción al Español:

Reliquias y sueños
Costuras sin abrir
Parece que hay algo escondido
Hay una sombra adentro
¿Ganará la oscuridad?
Hay una luz que brilla a través de mis párpados cerrados

 

Se que aveces me olvido que las sombras son una reacción del pasado
Qué mis memorias se transforman cuando recuento anécdotas que pensaba que debían durar

 

Ahora se
Qué la vida cambia
Que si vive dentro de su pequeña caja
No está vivx
No crecerá

 

Reliquias y sueños
Costuras sin abrir
Quiero lo que está escondido

 

Secretos revelados
Heridas nunca se curan
Cuando ve su reflejo obstruido

 

Se que aveces soy una flor que se marchita antes que la temporada llegue a su fin.
Que mis semillas y pétalos miran hacia la vida nueva que tuve cuando mi espina no estaba tan doblada

 

Y ahora se
Qué la vida cambia
Que si vive dentro de su pequeña caja
No está vivx
No crecerá

 

Reliquias y sueños
Costuras sin abrir
¿Por qué hay algo escondido?
