Lyrics

camino al limbo

Written By: jose felix testa/damian wohn

reviviendo la conciencia
caigo en la mentira
ojos sangrandome

llenando al demonio
imaginando sonrisa
escapar temporal

cerebro ardiendo
corazon zofocado
medicina inmoral

sacando esta sombra
paranoia presente
todo un camino siguiendome..

camino al limbo

Written By: jose testa/damian wohn

Me remuerde en la conciencia

Caigo en la mentira, ojos sangrándome

De lado un demonio, imaginando sonrisas, escapar temporal

Cerebro ardiendo corazón sofocado, medicina inmoral

Vagando entre sombras, paranoia presente,

Despegado del suelo,

Quiero ser como Dios

Olvidando el dolor….

Mente afuera queriendo olvidar

Ando perdido, bolsillos vacíos, no encuentro la luz

La gente me mira no soy un engendro, vergüenza total

Recuerdos me atacan sigo llorando temblando ansiedad

Deseo tambien aniquilar tu cuerpo y el resto al infierno…..

Despegado del suelo,

Quiero ser como Dios

Olvidando el dolor….

Mente afuera queriendo olvidar

Mente……afuera, olvidando….olvidando el dolor!

(guitar Solo)

Mente afuera!

Mente afuera queriendo olvidar!

ENGLISH TRANSLATION:

Consciously remorse,

By the lies that I felt in, blood tears from my eyes

Demons beside me, imagining smiles, temporary escape,

My brain is burning, choking my heart, immoral medicine

Walking between shades, in presence of paranoid

All roads after me.

Chorus:

Taken of the ground

Wanted to be like God

excluding the pain

Off my mind, just want to forget

Lost not to be found, empty pockets, I can’t see the light

People watching me, I’m not a spawn, totally ashamed

Memories attack me; I kept on crying, shaking anxiety

I also wish annihilate your body, and throw your remains to hell

Chorus:

Taken of the ground

Wanted to be like God

excluding the pain

Off my mind, just want to forget

Mind….off the ground, forgetting……forgetting pain!

(guitar Solo)

Off my mind!

Off my mind, just want to forget!
