"A New Level of Rock ... ALPHA LEVEL"

Biography

In 2005, Leo Alpha, after having been part of some bands as guitarist, decides to take his old ideas and compositions up again, left in his early adolescence, with the aim of drawing a personal project, later called ALPHA LEVEL. Months later, counting a more detailed project, Leo Alpha starts searching for the other band members. The audition of musicians would last for a long time, but finally in October 2006, a Leo Alpha's friend, introduces him to Oliver Martin, a guy who had the idea of searching for a band, for singing was a passion to him, which, abandoned some time ago, was coming out again. That is how in November 2006, after Oliver Martin's audition, such boy seemed to fix in the search’s expectations. Though Leo Alpha did not find in him the kind of voice he had always imagined for his songs, he noted a very particular voice, and found no significant problem in songs’ performance, a great skill to be exploited. So, in December 2006, Oliver starts working on Leo Alpha’s compositions. In july 2007, in spite of the lack of musicians to complete the band, Leo and Oliver decide not to lose more time and start recording a demo (“In the maze of the mind”), which was finished in October 2007. In may 2008 Matt Bears joined the band as bassit. Currently, the band is auditioning drummers. contact: alpha.level.band@gmail.com www.alphalevel.com.ar

Lyrics

Just Think

Written By: Leo Alpha (Leonardo A. Otero)

Do you believe in the one you wanna be?
Do you wanna be the one you believe in?

All that you are it’s just
A projection of your mind…

Who’s the one that thinks every word you say?
Who’s the one that thinks every thing you do?
Who’s the one to think of who you really are?
I just think
What you think is what you become

Don’t you think you’ve got to believe in what you think?
Don’t you think you’ve got to think of what you believe in?

What do you think you are?
What do you think?
Where do you think you are?
Where do you think?
How do you think you are?
How do you think?
Who do you think you are?

Do you believe in the one you wanna be?
Do you wanna be the one you believe in?

Destiny is just…
Just the consequences of your thoughts

(What are you thinking right now?)

Here

Written By: Leo Alpha (Leonardo A. Otero)

* This is an analogy between Argentina (the country where I live) and the human mind.
In explanation, the lyrics refer to what it’s like “Here” in Argentina, and at the same time, it refers to the mind.
(I thought it was original to compose and include a Tango melody in a rock song, since this is the musical genre which characterizes Argentina.)

Leo Otero

Here
(Music & lyrics by Leo Otero)

Here, there are too many ways to take
And in some ways, too many ways to take those ways

Here no way of freedom is free
For you are only free inside your own cell

But here in our minds there’s a light

Here, not all is just all that it seems to be
Here, all is just all we all are

Here, I think there is nowhere to run
No, you can’t get away from your mind

And here in my heart there’s a star
That will never stop to shine
Here in our minds there’s a light

Are we gonna change?
You know you could start the change some day
We’ll really start to change, if the change starts here
Can we really start to change?

(Here, in some areas it seems we are afraid of staying inside
But I’m afraid... here
We are not afraid of staying outside the laws)

Change
You know you could start the change some day
The start of the change
Starts changing the start

Are we gonna change?
You know you could start the change some day
We’ll really start to change if change starts here
Can we really start to change?
You tell me!

How Many Songs

Written By: Leo Alpha (Leonardo A. Otero)

Many songs that talk about love
Many songs that talk about life
How many more songs it takes
Till we can feel the spark of change?

Tell me what’s the meaning of a war
How can someone send a child to die?
What for?
Killing for religion or black gold
Turning the world into a time bomb
Please tell me
For how long?

How much more time it takes?
How many songs it takes?
How many more?
Tell me please tell me cause I don’t really know
How many more songs it takes?

Many people live in poverty
Cause many others die for being wealthy
Tell me how much more time it takes till then
When the world at last can feel the spark of change

How many more songs we’ll hear till then?
How many more songs we’ll have to write?
How many more humans will be wrong
About our humans rights?
Tell me how much more time…

How much more time it takes?
How many songs it takes?
How many more?
Tell me please tell me cause I don’t really know

Music is like a universal god
It can be felt, but never seen you know
Or maybe god can only be heard through ourselves
And music’s his voice in the universe
Just let’s believe in music
Cause music can
Yeah I’m sure it can…

Save the world
Save the world
Save the world
Please save the world

Cause
Music message can
Change our lives, change our will
Change our minds and that’s all we need to change
So tell me how much more time
Tell me how much more time
How many more songs it takes?

In The Maze Of Mind

Written By: Leo Alpha (Leonardo A. Otero)

Your dreams became a reality
Now that reality becomes a nightmare
An unknown surrounding wraps your mind
Forcing you to erect walls in your head

So, you lock yourself inside your own cell
You don’t want to stay, but you’re afraid to escape
You don’t want to feel so lonely, but you guess
Your only true company is loneliness

You get hurt outside to kill what you have inside
You don’t want to live, you don’t want to die
You bleed your wounds inside
And you bleed wounds of other out there…
Somebody...

Help me, heal me
There’s a hell in my head, in my heart
How can I live
Without my life?

You take a breath and carry on
You think it makes sense, you make up an excuse
But every way you take leads nowhere
And you don’t even know where you are now

You feel you’re not yourself when you speak
But you just speak to stop feeling
You feel like you’re frozen in hell
Now you know that to live dying
Is just the only way you know to live

Somehow...

Help me, heal me
There’s a hell in my head, in my heart
How can I live
Without my life?

Help me, hold me
Where to halt? is there place to hide?
It’s just another blind alley
In this maze of the mind

I can’t get away from me...
I can’t get away from me...
I can’t get away from me...
I can’t get away from me...
Get Away from me….
Get Away from me…
Get Away from me…
Get Away from me…

You Could

Written By: Leo Alpha (Leonardo A. Otero)

I can’t live if you’re not in my life, you see
Can you believe that I’m still drowning in all those tears?

Tell me why I still cannot think of anything but you?
I cannot go on all on my own
Only I’m safe in that shelter of your heart…

Would you save me again?
Would you take me again?
Would you save me?
Only you could save me now

Would you save me again?
take me again
Would you save me?
Only you could wake me up
Would you save me again?

I cannot remember any more for how long I’ve been trying to forget you
No I don't want to remember you have already forgotten me
I only want to hear someone tell me that there is really an exit door in hell
I can only live my life dying for you
Please tell me what I do now….save me....

Would you save me again?
Would you take me again?
Would you save me?
Only you could save me now

Would you save me again?
take me again
Would you kill me?
Would you kill me again?

You gave me life one day
Then you left me alone with it
You took my right away
To believe in myself
And I’m still wondering why
But maybe it was my fault, I know
What I don’t know is when I lost you

Would you save me again?
Would you take me again?
Would you save me?
Only you could save me now
Would you save me again?
take me again
Would you kill me?
Would you kill me again?

Save me
Just save me again
