Track Name: The Death Waltz
Spirits dance in the hollow glow
As the clouds assemble to mask the moon
As your feet graze the pavement
Shadowy figures float about
Darting in and our of your eyes' periphery
An army of forgotten souls
Echoes of the past
When will you join the dance of the dead?

Unbroken pieces hanging thin
And coming undone
Burn out your head, be free from sin
Invisible someone

Bones gather dust, feet turn to rust
Are we losing time?
Carefree as me, nothing to see
Living is a crime
Track Name: Brain Fog
Erase your mind
Erase your mind
Be free
Track Name: Lost Soul
Tired eyes, crowded streets
And a heart that beats
At the pace of busy feet
Your gaze fixes on the faces of nameless souls
Who sit across from you
While your mind drifts into faraway landscapes
Celestial terrains
Don't forget to keep your soles planted
Or else you're likely to lose hold of the pavement
And float away

You can't help but wonder
If the eyes that stare back can see through your facade
Can they sense your fear?
Behind your skin is a spirit waiting to unfold
Into the atmosphere
Feet that will ascend from the earth
Into the ghostly mascarade

When will you join the dance of the dead?
Track Name: Boneyard Baile
Bailar con los espiritus
Bailar con los fantasmas
Serrar tus ojos
Apagar tu mente
Caminar con los espiritus
