La Mitad
El Veneno Viejo
La Única Sin coser, el corazón Solo así se encuentra una causa De lado sabes que son nada más que historias del paraíso ¿Es la única? Manda afuera un llamado al suelo Ojos cerrados Piedra se desliza en donde tu espíritu estaba Cánsame si se puede ¿Es la única? ¿Es la única? ¡Es la única! ¡Es la única! Tan cansado que enganchado Atrapado en una red fina de virtud Pero no la tienes tú mismo Cuando también te atrapan ¡Qué tenue! Y a dónde vamos ahora ¿A encontrarte? Llama una y otra y otra y otra vez ¿Es la única? ¿Es la única? ¡Es la única! ¡Es la única!

Paper Beat Scissors Montreal, Québec

Musical monstrosity deposited in Montreal, Quebec after the first years in Burnley, England.
