AGNI’S DYNASTY (Fire I)

Tool or oblation
Incinerate and dominate
Devotion, knowledge and glory
A taste of power to unleash the fury
The scepter to subjugate
Or the royal mace to cultivate
The art of divine libation
Ignition of human ineptness
The ego’s death into the pyre
Denuded immaculate mind
Inherited candescence
Hidden and revealed existence

Settled in all mortal beings
Endorse wisdom and evolution
Agni’s dynasty
Settled in all mortal beings.
Agni’s dynasty.
The scepter to subjugate
Or the royal mace to cultivate
The art of divine libation
Perpetual ignition of human ineptness
A taste of power to unleash the fury.

STONE

Who conquers all its virtues

And has a hard skin surface

And lives in stagnation…

Yet born from mineral

Conversion, transition

(*)… Inspires alchemy
And forms the base of legends

The heart of the temple*

(it) Lies down
In forests
(the) Sculptor’s raw material

War’s weapon artillery

Temple or prison

Idols and gods

Yet born from mineral

Conversion, transition

From raw stone to talisman

Gem to icon
To satisfy worship’s faith

(it) Lies down
In forests
(the) Sculptor’s raw material

Yet born from mineral

Conversion, transition

War’s weapon artillery

Temple or prison
Idols, gods and enemies

Sculptor’s material Idols and gods.

HERESY (Steel)

Dried-out field Civilization Money flow,

Lives not all Matter,

Stagnation,

Cowards march.

Chorus:
Modern heresy, toothless
Schizophasic desire,
On the surface, around the corner,
War with the world with no chance of advance.

Petitions of modern courtesy rituals,

Information flood holds the ship of fools, Adrift,
Narcosis of local superiority,

Artificial circles,
Watchers refuse to take part

In the dance of the dead, they aren’t mad.

(Verse and chorus)

Conspiring fear, traumatized ignorance
Numbing desire to limit the world to the peasant’s eyesight,

Tending the crops on his own,
Never raising the head, expect to protect
The shallow field,
Of vision.

(chorus)

SATI (Fire II)

Igneous stones of transmutation
Birth of the Kailash Mountain,
Crystal meditation, place of transformation

Where world’s desire disappear

Thou hast a wish,
Supreme devotion
Born as a promise
The worship’s sacrifice, sacrifice!

Self-immolation through tongues of fire

As response of humiliation and ire

The funeral pyre purifies thou dignity

Widow’s ritual.

Cosmic cycles of creation and destruction

Trigger the Tandava’s dance
Despite his violent cadence and seduction

Matter is demolished by His trident’s lance

Thou hast just a wish,

Supreme devotion

Born as a promise
The worship’s sacrifice

Self-immolation through tongues of fire

As response of humiliation and ire.

Thou hast just a wish,

Supreme devotion.

Self-immolation through tongues of fire

As response of humiliation.

COATLICUE, SERPENT SKIRT (Earth I)

Gea!
We were born on this hungry ground

Dreaming awakening from sleep

And we live in illusionary peace.

She was sacrificed since the first hour of creation

Two snake figures come out of her decapitated head

Snake Woman
A horrible effigy, a monster stonework

Gea!

Snake Woman

She gives birth to all forms of life.

Teteo Innan,

Coatlicue

Beauty in its entity, mother of gods

Creator and destroyer

Serpents descend over her skirt
Around her bosom, a necklace of human remains
She keeps the seed, feeds on corpses and consumes them all

Two reptile figures come out of her severed head
Her severed head
She gives birth to all forms of life
*With the force born deep within her grows the magma’s core *

Impregnated by feather’s birds or a simple knife.

Dualism without a face.

NOK TERRACOTTAS (MUD)

Triangular eyes
Isolated in time
Look at us from the mud

Telling a story of clay

Sculptured figures talk

Terracotta figures
About (a) millenary heritage

Terracotta bodies emerge
From the hidden beauty of earth

Triangular eyes
Isolated in time
Look at us from the mud Telling a story of clay.

ROBLE PARA EL CORAZÓN (Wood)

Equilibrio y tesón
Valentía de roble para el corazón

Bajo tu sombra dormiré
Y sobre hojas secas soñaré

Palabras que ensucien la boca y la dignidad

Denunciar los vicios de la soledad

Equilibrium and determination

Oak courage for the heart
I’ll sleep under your shadow

I’ll dream on dried leaves

Bajo tu sombra dormiré

Y sobre hojas secas soñaré

I’ll sleep under your shadow

On dried leaves

Efímero es el triunfo

Frágil el segundo

A utopia of wise men
I’ll sleep under your shadow

I’ll dream on dried leaves

A utopia of wise men
I’ll sleep under your shadow.

SMOKE FOR THE CLOUDS (Ahuirán’s Water)

-Enter the tundra-

The flood has come
To deluge mankind’s throne

Spirits from the storm
Will destroy every stone

Praise the haze
To maintain peace
Avoid daze

Chorus:
Water, Ah! Water Ah!

Nail that grabs the trunk

Doesn’t grow
Tobacco
To smoke the clouds (it)

Drops the water

Rainfall on the plateau (it)

Drops the water
To smoke the clouds

Tobacco
Doesn’t grow
Nail that grabs the trunk

To smoke the clouds.

-Exit the tundra-

Every teardrop, every fountain

All Beasts (on earth)
Emerge from rain

Praise the haze

To maintain peace

Avoid daze

The flood has come
To deluge mankind’s throne

Spirits from the storm
Will destroy every stone
Of mankind’s throne.

(chorus)

Praise the haze

Avoid daze

The flood has come

Spirits from the storm

Praise the haze

Avoid daze

(chorus)

The flood has come

Spirits from the storm
(it) Will destroy every stone

The flood has come
To deluge mankind’s throne

Spirits from the storm
(it) Will destroy every stone.

BARREN (Gravel)

Morning light,
Stuck in the fight
Attempting to handle the heavy eyelids,

That dream, left the hollow
Remained like a bullet.

Don’t you remember when

You were a child of the rain,

Dancing in place

Where this city’s grown,

So many threads

Led here, entangled

Into the barren.

Chorus:
Wake up once again,
From one dream to another,
A nightmare remorse within myself

A nightmare desert within yourself.

But you are still there,
On the edge, borderline,
Fuzzy notes blur out the remains

Of meaningful words,
Shallow harmonies
Martyr’s soul

Relentless attempts to get away,

Embracing another love,

Begging for help,
Finding oneself in an empty bed

One hour before the end.

(Chorus).
