Sonata Culiebra I really enjoyed this album, and I bet the band tears it up live. The first tracks impressed me as being harmonically interesting, especially with the vocals, but still had a lot of distorted guitar riffs and a solid beat. I liked how clearly I could hear the vocals throughout, actually. As I listened to the rest of the tracks, I got the feeling that this album was like a love letter to a long-term partner, full of all the appreciation, rage and peace that comes with serious relationships. Favorite track: Brave.

Track Name: Solid Ground
I can't fight the way I feel inside
The way I feel there ain't no need to try
From the moment you appeared you changed my life
In the way that you live and the love that you give
That's right

I wouldn't be who I am without you
Your love set me free
Bringing out the best in me

You Showed me the way
Lost then I was found
Brought me back to solid ground
When all hope fades
You believe in me
Here we stand on solid ground

When life is dark you are the spark
To ignite the flame within my heart
When I feel weak you steady me
Become my eyes when I can't see

You Showed me the way
Lost then I was found
Brought me back to solid ground
When all hope fades
You believe in me
Here we stand on solid ground

I wouldn't be who I am without you
Your love set me free
Bringing out the best in me
You Showed me the way
Lost then I was found
Brought me back to solid ground
When all hope fades
You believe in me
Here we stand on solid ground
Track Name: All We Are
She said speak to me not the words of others.
Speak the truth of your own heart
What the world needs now
Is the brilliance and the bravery in you. So rise up and do your part!

Or will you hide away afraid?
Or take up the power upon your hands is laid?

I'm talking to you who see
The beauty in the broken things
Any answer that you'll ever need
Is inside of you
Listen closely. Knowing there's more to the story.
So dive as deep as you can go and you will have your proof.

Or will you hide away afraid?
Or take up the power upon your hands is laid?

We'll stand up for all we've done
Who we are. All we've become.
All we are....and all we'll become

No matter what life brings
There's magic in the mystery
All you've got to do is believe in yourself and you will know victory
There's no better time than now
To get up and forget about
All the people that held you down
Because they don't know you anyhow

Or will you hide away afraid?
Or take up the power upon which you were made?

We'll stand up for all we've done
Who we are. All we've become.
All we are....and all we'll become

Dare to dream again
(Dare to dream again)
Dare to be
(Dare to be who you are)
Exactly who you are
The dreamer and the dream

We'll stand up for all we've done
Who we are. All we've become.
All we are....and all we'll become
Track Name: Brave
Sleeping. Sleeping. Awaken the dream.
Enter. Enter. Your dreams reality
Whisper. Whisper, truth to set you free
Quiver, quiver. Your cells remember.

Do I have what it takes
To meet my enemy
At the gates
Open up. Let him in
Grant passage as a friend
Is he so different than me?
Open My eyes to see

You'll see how brave you are
When you take that leap of faith
Stare down, stare down the monster of yourself
Find a god within the wake

Brave you are
You'll see how brave you are
When you take that leap of faith
Stare down, stare down the monster of yourself
Find a god within the wake
Track Name: Layers
Suffocated forced to sleep
In the darkness buried deep
Beneath layers of deceit
I will conquer and devour these things
I relinquish myself if the sickness

Let the walls fall away
It is your life to claim
Claim it

They try to control all that we know
Spreading lies that they have bought and sold
But the truth stands up on its own so on your lies now you will choke

Let the walls fall away
(Let the walls, Let the walls fall away)
It is your life to claim
Claim it

Layers thick laid of bigotry bricks
Your insides are sick.
What can we do with this
Layers thick laid of bigotry bricks
Your insides are sick and I am through with this.
I'm through with this....strip them away!

Let the walls fall away
(Let the walls, Let the walls fall away)
It is your life to claim
Track Name: Shame
You build me up. But you let me down.
I took you in. You turned me out.
You build me up. But you let me down.
No matter what you think, I'll stand my ground.

You make like you're tried and true
Then cut me like a knife
You couldn't even tell me to my face.
I see you for what you are
Much heavier by far
Is the weighted burden of your lies

Twist the truth
Shame on you
Blind to see
Shame on me
Twist the truth
Shame on you
Shame on you
You had no right

And after all these years
And all that we've been thru
I'm wasting no more tears
I've given all I can to you

Given more than most
You cackle and you boast
Twisted up in judgement and with pride.
Did you ever really care.
You left it cold and bare.
Necessity to live
We let it die.

Twist the truth
Shame on you
Shame on you
You had no right

And after all these years
And all that we've been thru
I'm wasting no more tears
I've given all I can to you

You build me up. But you let me down. I took you in. You turned me out. You build me up. But you let me down. No matter what you think, I'll stand my ground.

And after all these years
And all that we've been thru
I'm wasting no more tears
I've given all I can to you.
Track Name: World Without End
On the fringe and into the fray
Courageously we tread
We've come unhinged in freedoms' name
To resurrect the dead
So zombie like have you become
I am shaking you to wake
Don't you give up now
There's far too much at stake

I will be right here for you
Take my hand and run with me
Together we will live on
Forever and ever
When the world comes crashing down
You feel you don't have a prayer
Remember we will live on
Forever and ever

As above so below
Deep down I have always known
Passed on through the hands of time
Into these hands of mine
Universal ancestry
Eternal Fire burning bright
Burning all through the years
I can see it in your eyes

I will be right here for you
Take my hand and run with me
Together we will live on
Forever and ever
When the world comes crashing down
You feel you don't have a prayer
Remember we will live on
Forever and ever

We have lived before
We have been reborn
Destiny won't let us rest
Our courage put to the test
Even in our darkest hour
We behold the power
Trespasses all be healed
Our souls revealed

I'll be right here
Come take my hand we'll live on
Forever

When the world comes crashing down
And you feel you don't have a prayer
Remember we will live on Forever
We will live on Forever
We will.
