LYRICS - THE INFINITE LOOP

 

1. AGONY 

(Music by Eduardo Gil & Richard Garcia - Lyrics by Eduardo Gil)

 

Fighting for nothing,

Aiming for anything but

Hopeless and faithless

I find myself again

 

This place is so cold

Just like my father’s warm hugs

 

It’s overdue…I am aware

To try to make amends

But confidence is dead

 

Candle light faded away a long, long time ago 

Yet no God has led me to a clear and quiet road

Still I hear the screams and suffering of my past lives

Keep telling me to stay the hell out of my mind 

 

Searching for answers

They swear they have a clue

I just stopped asking

I had to find my own truth

 

Taking all these pills

The only way to subsist

 

I cannot keep the way I live

My lungs are failing I can’t breathe

I’m on my knees

 

Candle light faded away a long, long time ago 

Yet no God has led me to a clear and quiet road

Lying on the floor losing my sight it’s now my time

A scarlet light arose and covered me with fire 

 

"No podéis comprar la salvación; no podéis ganar la rectitud"

"No seréis salvados porque viváis una vida recta,

sino que viviréis una vida recta porque ya habéis sido salvados"

"No dudes del poder amante de mi Padre,

sino tan solo de la sinceridad y alcance de tu fe. Para el que cree de veras, todo es posible."

 

(Solo Eduardo Gil & Richard Garcia)

 

What’s this epiphany?

I’ve always felt empty with these beliefs

Facts changed at their will 

Thus we could be controlled

You punish me if I don’t follow the rules

Can you fit all this in perfection?

 

(Solo Eduardo Gil)

(Solo Richard Garcia)

 

Death has come to me and made me see the darkest night

Suffocation’s nothing compared to its evil wrath

Suddenly epiphanies destroyed the wicked knight

I started to believe and chose to live my life

2. A CRITICAL AFFAIR

(Music by Eduardo Gil & Richard Garcia - Lyrics by Eduardo Gil)

 

Empires built out of innocent blood

Raiding and draining until the last drop

Now surrender all you possess

 

Let the weak be strong

Let the silenced be true

Let yourself be the hero

Embrace the final race

And join the next revolution

 

Going unnoticed like a deadly virus

Playing the savior 

Stink fades into smell

Our evolution has reached its end

 

Let the weak be strong

Let the silenced be true

Let yourself be the hero

Embrace the final race

And join the next revolution

 

Let yourself decide

A new dawn is about to arise

Raise your fists

Sound the drums out loud because now

We’re the ones to survive

(Solo Richard Garcia)

(Solo Eduardo Gil)

(Solo Eduardo Gil, Richard Garcia & Ugo Barbone)

 

Let the weak be strong

Let the silenced be true

Let yourself be the reason

Embrace the final race

 

Let the sheep be shepherd

Let the censured be known

Let yourself be the hero

Shape the final days

And join the next revolution

3. ENOUGH

(Music & Lyrics by Eduardo Gil)

 

It’s not enough that you’re here

If I still feel alone

 

It’s not enough to hold me now

If you’re gonna let me fall

 

It’s not enough to pay my bills

It’s not enough if you’re not there

Not enough if you’re not there

 

And I’m here…I feel

My skin has been torn off

The pain is so real

The consequences spell your greatest downfall

You made yourself a hole…

A hole in the ground 

 

It’s not enough you’re sorry

when the guilt keeps you up at night

 

It’s not enough if you hear me

If what I sense you don’t mind

 

It’s not enough you’re wealthy

It’s not enough if you’re empty

Filling yourself with shit you don’t need 

 

And I’m here…I feel

My skin has been torn off

The pain is so real

The consequences spell your greatest downfall

You made yourself a hole…

A hole in the ground 

 

(Solo Eduardo Gil & Richard Garcia)

 

And I’m here…I feel

My skin has been torn off

The pain is so real

The consequences spell your greatest downfall

You dug yourself a hole…

Now you can’t be found

 

I feel

My thoughts have been denied

The pain is so real

My mind was left behind

My body won’t heal

4. STOP CALLING ME LIBERTY

(Music by Eduardo Gil & Richard Garcia - Lyrics by Eduardo Gil)

 

Welcome to a place where wrong

Is our regent

 

Equity is just a clown

diversions amuse us

 

We’ve gone through hell, saw it all

Though we’re still lost

 

Looking for someone to blame?

Take a look inside

 

I’ve been so lonely out here

Bloodshed, raw deals made in my name

 

My green is rusting to black

The chains of dread have been locked

For quite so long

For far too long

 

My crown is falling apart

My fire is lifeless and dark

Light it up now

Let’s light it up now

 

Or stop calling me liberty

 

(Solo Richard Garcia)

 

Our brave soldiers leave their homes

“To fight for our freedom”

But they’ve just been deceived again

While some others get a check

 

With Superstores and all your malls

Thirst gets insatiable

The worst prison is the one

They call “freedom”

 

I’ve been so lonely tonight

Killings, slaughters under my eyes

 

My green is rusting to black

The chains of dread have been locked

For quite so long

For far too long

 

My crown is falling apart

My fire is lifeless and dark

Light it up now

Let’s light it up now

 

My green is rusting to black

The chains of dread have been locked

For quite so long

For far too long

 

My crown is falling apart

My fire is lifeless and dark

Light it up now

Let’s light it up now

 

Or stop calling me liberty

 

(Solo Richard Garcia)

(Solo Eduardo Gil & Richard Garcia)

(Solo Richard Garcia)

(Solo Eduardo Gil & Richard Garcia)

 

Politicians kiss your flag 

While they’re spitting on your country and constitution

Retribution, rightness

All our books have been adapted, modified 

Whole chapters vanished

Just to make us go to war for their oil, gold and soil

 

(Solo Richard Garcia)

 

Should I even write this song?

My pen is bleeding

Thousands come here everyday

Playing the patriot game

 

Well, has your boy heard the guns?

Cause you chose the whipping

It’s time for you to hold the torch

And set the road on fire

 

My green is rusting to black

The chains of dread have been locked

For quite so long

For far too long

 

My crown is falling apart

My fire is lifeless and dark

Light it up now

Let’s light it up now

 

Let’s bring our glory days back

Remember what we were

Hear not fear words 

Hear not weak minds

 

Question all we believe

Crushing the prison we’re in

Light it up now

Let’s light it up now

 

Or stop calling me liberty

6. WHAT IF (DICHOTOMY)

(Music & Lyrics by Eduardo Gil) 

 

What if I

Listen to my wayward and melodramatic mood

Just For a change

 

What if I’d sat here to 

Contemplate my future and my past

Over no coin toss 

 

And what if I

Stop trying 

And start off making 

A little bit of sense again 

 

Here I am

Going all out to be someone

Well this is me 

Pretending I know why I breathe

 

Set the stages and props

This is my prime role 

I’m the only one

But I’m still lost inside me

 

Empty that brimming glass 

Off of my head, don’t fill it up again

But I keep hearing the screams

 

What if I

Self induce amnesia and a little bit of madness

Bury my mental patterns

 

What if I

Quit fancying my life from the mighty leafy treetops

I might get real…just might get real 

 

Here I am

But I’m not allowed to be someone

Well this is me

Another casualty of this dichotomy

 

Set the stages and props

This is my prime role 

I’m the only one

But I’m still lost inside me

 

Empty that brimming glass 

Off of my head, don’t fill it up again

But I keep hearing the screams

 

Like a dream as I touch the sky with my bleeding hands

I set my foot on this life

 

(Solo Eduardo Gil & Richard Garcia)

 

Set the stages and props

This is my prime role 

I’m the only one

But I’m still lost inside me

 

Empty that brimming glass 

Off of my head, don’t fill it up again

But I keep hearing the screams

 

The ego needs to be loud

Empathy speaks out for itself

But I keep hearing the screams

7. To Who I Am

(Music & Lyrics by Eduardo Gil)

 

I feel blurry

I’ve been afraid

I was just wondering

How long you’ve been like this

 

Don’t even want to think about it

Just the thought of you faking it all along

 

I tried to fix it

I tried to make amends

But nothing seemed to change

 

I got up off the ground

I’m tired of being something I don’t want

 

I’ll try to find my way back

But this time with no regrets

Try to find my way back

To who I am

 

I’ll try to find my way back

But this time with no regrets

Try to find my way back

To who I am now

 

I tried to fly until I fell down

Until my wings got tired of flying low

Looking back into who I was

Can’t even compare it to what I have become

 

I got up off the ground

I got up off with pride

By coming as I am

 

I wanna feel the breeze

Hear the mountains crying out loud

 

I’ll try to find my way back

But this time with no regrets

Try to find my way back

To who I am

 

I’ll try to find my way back

But this time with no regrets

Try to find my way back

To who I am

 

(Solo Eduardo Gil & Richard Garcia)

 

I’ll try to find my way back

But this time with no regrets

Try to find my way back to who I am

 

I’m trying to find my own healing

Try to find my way back

To Who I Am

Now…

8. Ghost Of Lie

(Music by Eduardo Gil, Richard Garcia & Winston Jarquin - Lyrics by Eduardo Gil)

 

Evil spirit come to me

In the darkest night

I'm not afraid

I'm not your slave

I let you pass

 

Ghosts have been threatening me silently

Since I was just a kid and they’re still here

Never seen, never heard one, not sure if I had

Though I’m still aghast

 

Oh! Fear’s just a big liar 

That conquers our lives

Just turn off the lights

And tell me what you see

 

What do you see?

 

Maybe they’ve showed up in my sleep a couple of times

Choked me against the pillow…was that even real?

who knows…might have been just a bad dream

Mix of Hollywood movies and…and my fear of dying

 

Oh! Fear’s just a big liar 

That conquers our lives

Just turn off the lights

and tell me what you see

 

What do you see?

 

(Solo Derek Sherinian)

(Solo Eduardo Gil & Richard Garcia)

 

Maybe they do exist

Just ‘cause you can drown

You shouldn’t be scared of water

We’ve been in denial

Can you walk around the house with the lights out?

 

I do fly some nights

As smooth as a cloud

I might be raving out, 

But it’s vivid and bright

Can’t feel no fear, no pain,

No despair, no denial, no doubts

 

(Solo Richard Garcia)

(Solo Derek Sherinian)

(Solo Richard Garcia)

(Solo Derek Sherinian)

 

Oh! Fear’s just a big liar 

That conquers our lives

Suppresses our minds

In all directions you see

 

Choose now to be alive

Reclaim back your mind

Just turn off the lights

And tell me what you see

 

What do you see?

What did you see?

Can you see me?

Do you see me?

9. Emotionless Shells

(Music by Sifting - Lyrics by Winston Jarquin & Eduardo Gil)

 

Let’s go!

 

Seen many tragedies

Return to the ground

Correct me if I’m wrong 

 

There is nothing left for me

Cause’ it lives within 

Within us all

 

The fear, the pain

We search and we crash 

We serve as our own slaves

 

Inside of our heads 

Our thoughts chain us down

Release release 

 

Instincts took over without us even realizing

Emotions and intuition have just been paralyzed

 

Empty vessels we are? No! 

Filled with nothing? no goals?

Well fuck no!

 

The end is here…we know

We’ve seen it before

And from the first row

 

History doesn’t repeat itself 

But it rhymes with the past

Humanity has been left

Hanging by a thread

A fine strand

 

(Solo Richard Garcia)

(Solo Eduardo Gil)

(Solo Richard Garcia)

(Solo Eduardo Gil)

 

Encryption is done

Our brains have…have been programmed 

To live with no purpose no aim

Emotionless shells

 

For centuries everyone has been talking about this

Ruled by elitist groups as we take their bait

Rolling for so long we think is our own choice

Still we keep playing the blind eye, the deaf ear

 

Obligations to your nation

To your neighbors

Your ego, to your kids

Segregation

Separation

Domination

Defamation reigns your land

Working for somebody else’s goals

Just because you’re too afraid to fail

 

Shove it! Shove it off!

Shove it! Shove it off!

10. THE INFINITE LOOP

(Music & Lyrics by Eduardo Gil)

 

- Act 1: The Search

 

Who Am I?

Just a heap of atoms trying to survive

Or just a thought

Of a frowning God with a rigid mien 

Just playing “the mortals”

 

Lying in bed

I go through my life and realize I’m in pain

Haven’t done much right

Any poignant, thoughtful, heartful quotes for letters

sold in stores

 

And I realize

The horizon was fringed by a golden layer of hope

Couldn’t really understand

Guess that’s what they call the ultimate

Leap of faith

 

“It’s time to wake up

The first light has come

the blossoms have flourish 

and the savanna agleam

the trail has never been evident

but your feelings have been

You can make them possible,

You can make them real, 

if you choose to follow them”

 

The first light has come, my eyes see clearer

But the glow has blinded my path

Today’s gone, tomorrow is the same

Though I can’t seem to get it right

 

Everything I used to be collides

With everything I want to be tonight

Against what the world says I should be  

A sentry marked to crash the eternal mind

 

It hurts to admit I might be afraid

I cannot bear a change in my life

Going flat over uphill paths

Stops my own nature

And now I’m back again

 

(Solo Richard Garcia)

 

- Act 2: Detachment

 

Running past the river and tall grass

There’s an eerie house where I used to hide

And I put away the sense of being

One with my self as I was told

Refusing to embrace my gift

 

Yeah, the ship that never 

Made it to the sea

Talents and powers hidden inside of me

 

Even started bleeding for somebody else’s dreams 

Cast mine aside, I couldn’t allow to let go

 

It’s spinning

The everlasting circle we are in

And it’s infinite

Like the mantra that sings for enlightenment

 

No shame in crying

No shame in winning

No shame in wanting more

Break the paradigm

It’s in your nature, your veins, in your blood

 

(Solo Richard Garcia)

 

Now he’s found his way back

Look what he's become

That’s all he wanted

The more you have

The more you can give

 

- Act 3: - The inner voice

Beyond the confines of this place

Lies a sacred sage

A divine oracle

You’ve likely never heard…no

 

War, division, hunger

It's what's to follow next

That’s when evil finds its way

And makes you forget

 

Like the sun invades the earth 

Destruction takes its place

No way out, there’s no escape

’Til ya start listening

 

Well, this voice can’t be ignored

Sure it’ll be heard

Crying from the inside out

Might crack your shell

 

Some will call it non-sense

Some will say insane

Tune-in words, mind and soul

Soon will bring me out

 

(Solo Eduardo Gil & Richard Garcia)

 

You think you couldn’t go lower?

The worst is happening

The universe is talking

It’s the storm before the peace

Hang on tight, take up the change

And soon you’ll realize

A new task has been knocking at your door tonight

 

- Act 4: Who I am

 

Divine duality 

You had me going through all this

And now I think I understand 

I really can

In darkness, I discern the light

Being wrong, I’ll know when I’m right 

What I want to be, and what I don’t

Who I am, and not

 

(Solo Richard Garcia)
