about

Una sociedad de marionetas, de autómatas programados para creer lo que es transmitido por tradición y hacer lo supuestamente debido y correcto. Una masa de borregos que piensa en común. De esto trata, entre otras cosas, 'Broken toys', de revolución contra lo establecido, de pensar por uno mismo como individuo y comenzar desde cero con valores propios que ayuden a romper las paredes de lo inculcado. De no ser clones de clones.

Track Name: When I Am Gone
Raise that cup, take a bow
Don’t put it down till you touch the ground
Take a seat, watch this show
You’re gonna see what they told you to

Where did we go?


When I am gone
When I am gone
Don’t look behind ‘cause we’re already broken
Recount all the things unspoken
When I am gone


Misery all around
Or can’t you see how enchained we are?
Freedom is our joint
‘cause the point is there ain’t no point

Where did we go?


When I am gone
When I am gone
Don’t look behind ‘cause we’re already broken
Recount all the things unspoken
When I am gone

When will we know
how to break these walls?


When I am gone
When I am gone
Don’t look behind ‘cause we’re already broken
Recount all the things unspoken
Don’t look behind ‘cause we’re already broken
Recount all the things unspoken

When I am gone
Track Name: A Monster
How do you know how a monster looks like?
I’ve been searching for a candle in the dark
In the night of the hunter you’re disguised as an ally
The cruellest way to stab in the back

Don’t close my eyes
In spite of my destroyed paradise

Torn apart by lies and fears
And all I want is to disappear
‘Cause I’m all nightmares and tears
but I can’t let him die

Smashed into millions of pieces, I’m a broken toy
And I won’t ever be able to go back
You have a dark side, the hidden face of the moon
It’s just a matter of time they realize

Don’t close my eyes
In spite of my destroyed paradise

Torn apart by lies and fears
And all I want is to disappear
‘Cause I’m all nightmares and tears
but I can’t let him die
Track Name: We Are All Clones
Ladies and gentlemen it’s all the same
Canons, money and melting brains
Role models plastic made
Wake up

You’re born, you’re fed and sent to play
Studies, work, established lanes
Generations stick to the game
Come on

All, we are all clones
All, we are all automatons

Doesn’t it look like a circus to you?
All the bullshit we put ourselves through
We run in circles without complaint
Stand up

The retarded animals of the class
Our heads turned into papers that
Someone else is willing to
Write on

All, we are all clones
All, we are all clones
There’s no way we can fake it
‘cause all, we are all automatons

All, we are all clones
All, we are all clowns
There’s no way you can fake it
‘cause all, we are all automatons
Track Name: The Story
I'm on a fight with no quarter
staring at my demons and regrets
trying to kill off my nightmares
but killing off my dreams instead

I’m looking for you
I’ve been consumed and
I just want to be saved
want you to save me from me


Because... Everything I see is flames
that are burning down my skin and my fate
It’s melting down my brain
All I can do is just run and scream

I'm joining all my pieces again
waiting for you to tell me "all set"
and then I’ll tell you why
you’re still on my mind

I’m looking for you
I’ve been consumed and
I just want to be saved
I need you to save me from me



Because I need some sort of sign
If you can tell me who you are...
I need some sort of sign...
Maybe you save me from me

I’m on a fight with no quarter staring at my demons and regrets


Because I need some sort of sign
If you can tell me who you are...
I need some sort of sign...
Kiss me if you can save me from me
Track Name: Hideout
You asked me what stars were made of
and I swore to you that night that they were made out of us
Are they going anywhere
Or are they wasting light?

Why? I wonder why…?


Is there a place to hide
Between your arms and the deepest place in ice?
Will you be my lullaby
so we can bind


It's a complicated story
We climb through the branches while they take their chances to follow us
It's way more beautiful
if we're poles apart

Why? I wonder why…?


Is there a place to hide
Between your arms and the deepest place in ice?
Will you be my lullaby
so we can finally walk the line?
Track Name: Revolution
Be the change you want to see in the world
Get up and scream to them what you stand up for

You don’t have to pretend you don’t care ‘cause you do
I’d rather fly and fall than never see the sky


Revolution
Our hands are tied and our eyes shut on command
Revolution
We’re too much and our words won’t be burned again
They won’t be burned again

It’s your chance of being who you are
Knowledge gives the freedom to choose right

You know honestly we’ve been trampled enough
Even in our bones there’s strength for the fight


Revolution
Our hands are tied and our eyes shut on command
Revolution
We’re too much and our words won’t be burned again
They won’t be burned again


Revolution, revolution, revolution, revolution, revolution, revolution, revolution, RE-VO-LU-TION
Track Name: Time Machine
I am questioned to respond
the saddest melody I’ve ever heard
I’m wandering as
that lonely star that shines in the dark

I’m about swim among
Tears that do not heal anymore
And on the very edge
Of a situation that’s way over my head


I wanna breathe,
I wanna live once again
A time machine
forget who I’ve been

Is there nothing else to do
but to drive down the memory lane?
It all spins around you
when I try to avoid the broken frames

These are my shadows and regrets
The chronicles of a misguided ghost
Tell me what happens next
‘cause forever my heart will be closed

I wanna breathe,
I wanna live once again
A time machine
forget who I’ve been

Goodbye, Goodbye
‘Cause I wanna breathe,
I wanna live once again
And we can’t go back in time
I wonder who you are…
Track Name: Mechanical Wars
Hands traded for machine guns
Eyes forgetting the colour of the sun
Names turned into numbers
Tonight a deafening silence rules

I want this to end
But I cannot escape


It’s them, they wanna break us
Apart they wanna take us
In our heads forever scarred
Replaced my veins for wires
So I can’t feel the fire
Now it’s time to raise our hearts


Ghosts guiding our empty steps
Lost for words as we walk through this mess
Are we becoming monsters?
Soaking ourselves with the tears of others

We’re running out of air
Do we still have a plan?


It’s them, they wanna break us
Apart they wanna take us
In our heads forever scarred
Replaced my veins for wires
So I can’t feel the fire
Now it’s time to raise our hearts


Leave me here
Leave me here
Leave me here
Leave me here and save yourself
Track Name: The Reflection
I wanted to write you this, even if you’ll never know it
Did it happen to me? All that I ever wanted…

So close and so far, I will see you behind a broken glass
Your reflection in the water, all I’ll ever be able to have
You take my breath
It’s killing me

And I wonder how it would have been to hold you tight
Maybe in another time, another life or planet…

So close and so far, I will see you behind a broken glass
Your reflection in the water, all I’ll ever be able to have
You take my breath
It’s killing me
