SO IT HAPPENED
So it happened, there was this vulture who was picking at the pieces of my flesh
I took the long view and cast my light round
not to burden him with kindness of the friends he'd never met,
and I was happy but I was childish, trading on a vision that was lost
I read the signs wrong and then his eyes shone
He had me licking at my wounds and counting up the cost

So it happened, there was this big man, he had the words and the beard and the smile.
He broke the bread wrong, he turned my light down
He expected all the glory for keeping me alive
I got his long neck and I turned it into something I could love
But how his eyes shone and how his lies stung
so I got down on my knees and prayed to God above
..."send this one back and we'll send someone else for you"
Liar!
I fought the monster and I sent him back to hell

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.
