about

SIMPLIFIRES Mexico City, Mexico

SIMPLIFIRES are an anomaly existing, writing and recording
in the vacuum that is Mexico City's contemporary RocknRoll culture.
The scene is vibrant and alive, but it is not suffocating or focused on any trend.
All sorts of music and life exists and passes through the megapolis that is
Mexico City and that's exactly what made it just the right place for
SIMPLIFIRES to incubate.

Track Name: Separation is the Oldest Story
1. SEPARATION IS THE OLDEST STORY
You’re so cool, you’re so clean, oh you’re so deep,
The light in the tunnel shining down on me, lying on the flloor
Nursing a broken Heart
You’re so cool, you’re so deep, do you see me from above
You left a sworn enemy to a simple day in love who won’t listen anymore
Or think
I miss you, I don’t wanna lie
Separation is the oldest story
You sent me away for the words i didn’t buy
Let in no-one who turned off the light
You’ve got the simple intuition of a lover who’s been wronged
(hey x4)Caught in the middle of being right and being sold out,
Break out the hoe, be a seed or be deceived
I want to watch things grow
Woooo...
Do you want to dream
Do you want to feel,
But they won’t listen anymore (‘cos) you don’t think
If it’s all true, if it’s so real, do you really feel these things I feel
There’s weakness to blame,
If they won’t listen I’ll sink
(this is just a ride)x4
If you’re going to run things here you’ve underestimated me
To leave the only thing that matter swinging in the breeze
Every single lover every single night knows what is wrong & what’s right
I will live to see a better run
You were wishing truth would have been a better runt
There’s something irritated under your skin
You mother is picking at the sins
I miss you, I don’t wana lie
Separation is the oldest story
You sent me away for the words i didn’t buy
Let in no-one who turned out the light
You’ve got the simple intuition of a lover who’s been wronged
(hey x4)Caught in the middle of being right and being sold out,
My distance from the table is my distance from the world
Today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday
Girl, sometimes it can all be taken from the proudest soul….
Sink into the feeling about your life
Think about the goodtimes, how your friends weren’t so bad
Do you really want to make me owe you for you skin when today is your tomorrow
about to being
All for recognition but this soul can’t take the bad
I’ve been trouble always but my troubles ain’t so bad
So let this be a celebration and not what a fool says that
every generation leaves a problem or a little less
I will leave you memories, keep a bottle out for me,
I will leave you stories, stories for you to read
I don’t want to dissappear or dissipate a disappointed man
If everything is nothing you should have had a better plan
Over-information we all know isn’t right
The shadow on the heart of things remembres the light
Of a silly little lesson that ruled this world
Give me sun give me soul give me the power of the cold earth
Track Name: Emergency Song
2. EMERGENCY SONG
Nothing’s happening over here again
Gold and silver lightning falling all around against the backdrop of the moon
And the shivers of the wind fill the gaps between the rain
Lacing the corset lining the walls in this room
They tell me it’s easy, but you’d think I deserve something better
When it’s no secret I think you’re pretty…
I’ve been bending over backwards to mend my breathing,
to help with me comings and goings
To keep you happy…
Looking out over the peaceful music, rolling and rising I think i’m in heaven…
Screaming and teasing with my index finger
But you can’t have one without the other
You can’t have son without a mother or love without each other
But you’re wasted on me, wasted on me, wasted on me, (wasted on me x3)
Why are you so down???
Track Name: The Flavour of Being
3. THE FLAVOUR OF BEING BURNS
Oooooo…mmmm..
When you find out what it is the pulls you from the inside down
It moves like sand you fool there’s meaning to it all
Give me something to believe in that will fill my soul
But if everything is nothing you’ll forget what you’ve gone
Support the fear of fading by the brightest one
Everything repeats we’ve been there before
Come back, come back and knock on my…
What a thief, what a lie
The favour of being burns…
It will heal in it’s own good time but if i see them sell the river I will see them put down
One by one
Ooooo…ahhhhh
If everything is nothing you won’t be dead before you’re rotting
If everything is nothing you won’t be dead before you’re rotting
If everything is nothing you won’t be dead before you’re rotting
These are the pleas of an out-stretched arm
mmmmmm….
When you find out what it is rotting from the inside out
A cooler hands soothes the skin before it crawls
Give me something to believe in that will save us all
But if everything is nothing should I forget what you’ve done
Support the fear of waiting by the brighter son
Everything repeats, we’ve been here before
They come back, come back asking for more
What belief, what a lie
The flavour of being BURNS
It will heal in it’s own good time
Pull yourself together I will see them put down one by one
Ooooo…ahhhhh
If everything is nothing you won’t be dead before you’re rotting
If everything is nothing you won’t be dead before you’re rotting
If everything is nothing you won’t be dead before you’re rotting
If everything is nothing you won’t be dead before you’re rotting
If everything is nothing you won’t be dead before you’re rotting
If everything is nothing you won’t be dead before you’re rotting
If everything is nothing you won’t be dead before you’re rotting
These are the pleas of an out-stretched arm
Woooo…wooo
PUT YOUR ARMS OUT
Track Name: When the Mud Slides
4. WHEN THE MUD SLIDES
Home again, down again, home again down again
Not everyone can be a winner baby not everyone is the same as you
Home again, down again I have a secret, a secret i won’t tell
Not everyone can be a winner no matter what they say to you
Hu ha hu ha
I’m home again but trying to change a brother from a rogue
Old ill-winds blow easy
Oh what a sin
Not everyone can be a winner baby not everyone is the same as you
(Hu ha hu ha) home again, down again a free soul who’s wasting away
not everyone can take a minute to make sense of the day love
we’re home again, down again, we can talk it away ‘til we’re blue in the face
but here comes the rain, even if they say it won’t…
you know why i waited for you, you balanced a pillar before it turned to SALT
the whole day long but it turned up raw
it’s so cruel to give half when double’s expected
so cruel to be someone who’s heart hasn’t melted
too cruel to take love as a gift
so cruel to make pleasures as something bound to give
it’s soo cruel to give hope when love is infected
forced to make fertile the ground that isn’t cleared yet
soo cruel to take love as a gift
when the mud slides don’t be by the cliff
ha ha ha, ha ha ha…
I’m home again, down again
Home again, down again
Not everyone can live forever baby, not everyone was made like him
Home again, (ha ha ha) down again, a free soul who wasted away
Not everyone can be forgiven, no matter what they say love
I’m home again, down again, it was a sweet rose but you’ll soon get over it
‘though everyone has been a sinner not everyone’s to blame love
you know why i waited for you, you balanced a feather before it turned to straw
to right her wrongs but it turned out wrong
you know why i waited for you, balanced a pillar before it turned to SALT
the whole day long but they turned up raw
it’s so cruel to give half when double’s expected
so cruel to be someone who’s heart hasn’t melted
too cruel to take love as a gift
so cruel to make pleasures as something bound to give
it’s soo cruel to give hope when the blood is infected
being forced to make fertile the ground that isn’t cleared yet
too cruel to take love as a gift
when the mud slides don’t be by the cliff
ooo ooo ooo
Track Name: Today Being so dark ´n all
5. TODAY BEING SO DARK N’ALL
I know it’s over but you make it so hard
To imagine his love draped in another mans arms
And who ever knew it’s you who would be so cruel
You promise me lies throwing arrows right through my eyes…
This just feels like i’m nothing
This just feels like i’m not living
This just feels like i’m dying
I know know it’s over but you make it so hard
To imagine his love draped in another man’s arms
And who knew yeah it’s you who would be so cruel
And who knew it’s you…( who would be so cruel)
This just feels like i’m nothing
This just feels like i’m not living
This just feels like i’m dying
This just feels like I’m lying….
