Thanks:

First the musicians who used their considerable talent to make these songs better than I could have ever hoped for! Second YOU, for listening to this album, buying it and reading the liner notes.
No animals were harmed during the recording of this album. However, a lot of gear  has had a hard time coping with all my and our doings. Just to give you an idea: several microphones, a couple of guitar amps, 2 basses, 6 and 7 string guitars, 1 drum kit, a master keyboard, an awful lot of computer time and software like BFD, ProTools, Blue Cat, DVI, Ozone, AIR, just too much to remember.
I also thank Fabrizio Borgosano (
www.coralriff.biz ) for the front cover artwork and logo design. And of course Joan M. Munoz (http://raiwaz.blogspot.com.es ) for an unique drawing which can be found inside theCD  booklet. Awesome work guys!
And I must not forget my family who had to put up with me disappearing all the time to work on this release and make them “ enjoy” it over and over and over again.

Oh. central theme for the album is TIME (just in case).

2 IMAGINARY QUEENS

there on the lakeside

where the water will be forever

and where the grass is green

the wind is blowing in the trees

I thought I heard singing

this must be a mistake

I thought I heard singing

on the Westside of the lake

while I was just

courting imaginary queens

while I was only

fulfilling my dreams

there on the lakeside

where the water is forever

water is forever life

save and flowing for miles

I thought I saw something

this must be a mistake

I really thought I saw her

at the Westside of the lake

while I was just

courting imaginary queens

while I was only

fulfilling my dreams

she disturbed the balance

of self made-up love scenes

but we can only win

as love is king

that lady was for real

and she got all it takes

she made it real to reel

this can’t be a mistake

and what is there to fake

being naked at the lake.. 

4 PHOENIX FOR THE SUNRISE

no matter how many pollutions

may stain my virgin face

I’m sure to find a fruitful path

leading to invincible grace

a phoenix for the sunrise

in the morning always new

a phoenix for the sunrise

let it shine on you

no matter how many danger

will hold my steady breath

I will find an appetite way

escaping the sheet of death

a phoenix for the sunrise

in the morning always new

a phoenix for the sunrise

let it shine on you

will I cry when I fly away

will I cry?

will I cry?

will I …?

a phoenix for the sunrise

in the morning always new

a phoenix for the sunrise

let it shine on you

6 SET ME FREE

I’m not superstitious

trying to find out

where our love has gone

is it not too late

to turn fate around

to be with you again

the rise and fall

I have seen it all

the words and silly lies

the head and heart

I’ve seen it all

being torn apart

set me free

just unlock my heart

and throw away the key

baby set me free

the love I once knew

is no longer in me

I just can’t believe

though the final state

is yet to come

you consider it done

too late to stay

too late to wait

repeat chorus

is it really to late

I just can’t believe

you know I would wait

given a chance on relief

8 LOOKING FOR SOMEONE

suffocated by the news

strangled by the knowledge

another war another law

another victim

looking for someone that won’t show

got lost along the way

why he don’t see it I don’t know

been hit by a truck ?

sometimes you is blind

and we won’t know it

I can see the parallel lines

mystification in the system

I can feel the vertical vines

the annihilation of society

looking for someone where did she go

lost the track somewhere

was she acting blind I don’t know

a little carried away

sometimes you don’t see

and we won’t know it

I can see the parallel lines

mystification in the system

I can feel the vertical vines

the annihilation of society

another crash accident

another war

another innocent victim of some law

or it’s trespasser

can’t you read the signs

suffocated by the news

strangled by the knowledge

don’t you follow me

won’t you get it through your head

one day we’ll all be …..

10 TIME

I need it

I never have enough

I use it

and I still need more

there’s so much for me to do

so much to get through

if I just had time

time ain’t on my side

got no time for you

got no time to write

I need it……..time

I never have enough

money can’t buy..time

but I always need more

my list keeps growing longer

the desires get stronger

if I just had time

time ain’t on my side

got no time for you

got no time to write

still there’s always you

when I’m at breakdown point

you always pull me through

and save me for a while

all this doing it for you

sometimes knocks me off my feet

still there’s always you

when I’m in breakdown seat

12 PLACES NEVER SEEN

father,

where have you been

and father

what have you seen

please tell me

where did you stay so long

what have you done

I talked to the wind

chasing the shadows of my dreams

I walked through the wasteland

to places never seen

father,

why did you go

father, (oh father)

we missed you so

please show me

where you have been so long

what did go wrong

I talked to the wind

chasing the shadows of my dreams

I walked through the wasteland

searching for places never seen

I could tell you

of all wonders that I saw

and I could tell you

about the love I’ve never known

I’d like to show you

all the ways that made me see

all the landscapes

in the hearts of mystery

but I’ll say nothing

you just leave that up to me

seek your own  destiny
