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: Why People make Countries
why people make countries:

Maybe I’m shattered maybe I’m done
Maybe we’ve found the ground I can love
Maybe we’ll build here and write down our names,
see what becomes of our family

Battered and bruised no doubt,
Take the witches and tear them down, I know all about your mothers heart - she used to be a friend of mine!
I need a witness not to belive but build a wall around me and all about your mothers heart, she used to be a friend of ours

I need a witness not to belive me but remember all I’ve done
Too many creatures forget all about their mothers love!

Maybe I’m shattered but what could I loose explaining our weakness only to you,
I need a witness not to be believe, but build a wall around us!
Track Name: The Whole History Over
The whole history over

Don’t want to scare you I just wanted to remind you, how did it feel, how does it feel to be trapped??? You stupid little girl, I’m not the fool you are -
Don’t they owe us some of that luck?
How did she know my game and fit the preferences?
All around the bend and all about a sweetened end?
Over and over and over again you swing a line from my love.
Track Name: Unsupervised
unSupervised

the first cut was the deepest but it didn’t bruise
with a back full of bags you’ve nothing to loose
fully misplaced but you don’t take favours
maybe you shouldn’t live life unsupervised

oh shit, is this what you did when it’s all gone arry…
and do you still feel like honey?
You’ve never seen home in your life…

I saw you fall over you massive heart
I saw you die when the world revolved around us

shatter the faces staring out from the glass
We spent all our sundays que’ing up while we fasted
Starving for mondays, starving for you
I didn’t realise they were talking about you

Oh shit, is this what you did when it’s all gone arry…
And do you still feel like honey?
You’ve never seen home in your life…

I saw you fall over your massive heart
I saw you die when the world revolved around us
Oh murder what did you loose
why did you choose to be over and over again
my affordable high

Out making plans when the world revolved around us
Drinking the body of a glorified crush
Maybe I shouldn’t have moved
Then maybe I’d still have you
Track Name: A Simple Fire
aSimpleFire

be as slow…as you want
where is the fire when you get none from a little rubber soul –
a man who wears his heart too low!!
Banished home in my mistakes,
In the shadows you purge your make-up and act like Grace.

It burst from the lighter love
Then you mock me with your love songs
It burst from the lack of blood
between our beating together hearts…
A whole day lost drawing tears from a desert love
It burst from the lack of blood

When you add up my defaults, I’m a waster of life’s rewards
I’m the man in the moon who’s trying to tear out your eyes…
but if you feel like I do you might never walk again because the air here is poison!!

Can you feel the air tonight? Could you be loved by the man in the moon who’s trying to tear out our eyes?

Douse me water when the feeling you give me is FIRE
Douse me in water or let go……
Track Name: The Day
The day

No wonder I prefer these things there’s more love in them than us
No wonder I adore these things there’s more love in them than us

Daddy-O todays the day you’ll fit the whole family in your picture frames
Track Name: Yourself Only
yourself Only

ran to you with nothing to say when the parting love changes
too bad – wrong time/wrong place in a foreign skin
he’s a nobody in a ceasar’s role - you got out
a nobody in a sinner’s soul - you’ve been sold out .
so I call in the daggers on a december day and I’ll ride the air you breathe
fall in the glass with a jittering head you didn’t know your bones would break

so I climb the stairs though you’re totally burned with the shine in my face you light my path…
hello! it’s no childrens prayer, it just seems that way amid the photographs of stone, from stone…
there’s no time or place that’s home inside without a little regret at being sold to the depths, dodging your birth, confined to your bed…and what do you get when it’s all gone wrong….
Yourself only!
Track Name: Bombs
BOMBS

baby let go, I don’t have time for you anymore
when your city explodes you know who’s been
knocking on the door in waiting

it comes and goes with the dove and a band of gold
it comes and goes, you’re no different ….

what do you know, it wasn’t your God who caused the flood
nobody knows yet but there rev’ing up the radio to start the slaughter

take what you need and leave, we’ve shown you the door
you’re bound to find out that you’re not welcome here anymore






what do you know?
we’re saving our secrets for the crimes
with words that move faster we’re find a way to get rid of what you’ve been saving for

it comes and goes with a Bullet and the hand of God,
it comes and goes, you’re no different ….

take what you need and leave, we’ve shown you the door
you’re bound to find out that you’re not welcome anymore
leave me
please understand that you’re no different to any other man.
leave me shots for songs!
you’ve got the right stuff but you’re not welcome here anymore.
Track Name: New Old Song
New OLD Song

Bad news sweetheart:
-you’ve been sold out again by the talk that’s cheaper than you’d ever spend you’re life on
they’re bad when you touch them, they’re bad in your soul
while these blood sucking bastards surround your bones

Bad news sweetnes:
you’ve been drowned out again by the voice inside
you could pretend that they would drop you in there
bad when you touch them, they’re bad in your soul
while these blood sucking bastards surround your bones

they want you to feed them
they want you to be a shattered man
but I’ve using my faith trying to love the things we all hate
here’s my loving, here are my bones
push them together and watch them explode

come back sweetness satisfy my love
come back sweetness justify my love
Track Name: Her Brightest Face
Her brightest face

old man I’ve wasted my time falling closer to the center of her sunshine
here she comes in another man’s hand looking all coy like it doesn’t matter.
Oh God I’ve wasted my style to fit into the shimmers of a life-line.
These were the things pushing me down but if she looked me up I’d be right around.

I don’t feel like I’m awake, afraid of the day make light of the night
to win her brighest face!!

Old man I’ve wasted my time falling deeper to the center of her dark sunshine.
These are the things pushing me down but if she looked me up I’d be right around…
I don’t feel like I’m awake, afraid of the day make light of the night
to win her brightest face!!





And so the highlights:
she looks so sad,
A little smile and I wouldn’t feel so bad
A few good words to try and bring her up, but she sit’s in silence waiting for something to relate how love will only linger when you’’ve taken it away…
Track Name: Last night´s Party
Last night’s party

She picked up a copy of the local rag and read all about the events last night
She wasn’t part of the fun but the dresses looked real nice
So she makes up a plan to loose some weight maybe eat more fruit maybe a little less cake
Full developed by this modern world to be rolled up in a box and be a really really good girl

Ha ha ha ha ha ha

My belief died in the mind of a liar when someone held up my hands through the arms of desire
Feed me the drugs when my body’s rotting, when my face lights up my mind’s forgetting you
You’re a misery, well I love to be alive, but I’d prefer to be free.

I’m not sure but maybe they’re all right…
Put up your feet watch tv, soft seats and buy more things to make you feel better
When it comes ,the time for a change, in step the soothers peddling their faiths,
fully developed by this modern world to give them all of our lives and all of our goals..

ha ha ha ha ha ha

My belief died in the mind of a liar when someone held up my hands through the arms of desire
Feed me the drugs when my body’s rotting, when my face lights up my mind’s forgetting you….i LOVE TO BE A LIAR…so what am I to do??

What the fuck?!?!?!? they want to tear us up!!!
Track Name: No Retrases

Track Name: Don´t Come To The City
don’t come to the city

all these pictures that make up for me
my gold and silver bothered brothers hate the blind man with the curse to lead but you can’t have one without the other
oh my love, a life to figure out - taking a breather in another sense
don’t mind me while I figure out who we’d be for one another…

oh my love what have we done?

so take your places to fill up the scene and pray to God you don’t trip over
scrawl my name across your chest and laugh for who we’d be before we’re older

like a blindman feeling his way through the streets – lalala madness in the city, if you could break out you might really feel to wander freely unrestricted…

oh my love what have we done?…you’d sell it all for comfort, so don’t come to the city

so take your places to fill up the scene and pray to God you don’t trip over
maybe the islands could be owned by me… who won the freedom of the other?
So scrawl my name across you chest and laugh for all of the good times now they’re over.
I may be the curse who guides you but you’ll dream of me when it all goes under……………
