Las letras de Phantom Anthem!!

Album: “Phantom Anthem” (2017)

1. King Of Sorrow

I’m the angel of the dead
Take a good look at me (Take a good look at me)
Grief is my guilty pleasure
I’m taking comfort in your pain

My happiness is your defeat
Your heartache makes me feel so complete
The compliments roll in and remind me I’m a good friend
I’m here for you until the end

Open the door, let me in
I need you, you need me too
Open the door, let me in
Let me in

I am the king, king of sorrow
I am the king, king of sorrow
Bow to me now, give me your tears
I am the king, king of sorrow

Rest assured that everything will be okay
It’s all going according to plan
Let me speak for you in these times of dread
I’ll be your guide, now please just rest your head

I am the dead ringer
If it bleeds then it leads
Misery loves company and you’ve just met your match

Open the door, I’ll leave you be
Thank you for your sympathy
Open the door, I’ll leave you be
I am the saint of empathy

Farewell (Farewell)
Farewell (Farewell)
Farewell (Farewell)
Farewell (Farewell), I’ve consumed all that I need
Farewell (Farewell), I am the saint of empathy

2. Hero Of The Half Truth

Carry us from the brink
Keep us from becoming extinct

We let you into our worst nightmares
Spouting fiction that left us cowered and scared
Follow the guidelines and you’ll save our lives
It’s sad to see you’re quickly choking, choking on your lies

You vulture
Choking on your lies (Choking on your lies)
You vulture
We see through your disguise

Wishing we could take it all back
The beasts in your pack are the worst ones to attack
Change course and use a different track
The beasts in your pack are the worst ones to attack

They will show no mercy
They will show no mercy

Abandonment harbors the most resentment
If truth is the backbone you keep on bending it
One day it will snap into pieces
So shattered you’re never able to mend them
They are broken, you are broken

Heads bowed before us, the fearless crumble and crawl
Asking forgiveness, forgiveness from all
Use the anger, direct it within
This could have been, been prevented

What was completely divided will come together united
Under the wings of a movement, the wings of a movement

Wishing we could take it all back
Wishing we could take it all back
Change course and use a different track

We’ll rip and shred every word you say, every word you say

We will show no mercy
We will show no mercy
We will show no mercy
We will show no mercy

3. The Frost

The cold comes with a sting, a sting across my hands
Cracking and breaking like the weight upon my chest
It took me years to figure out
It’s what I needed, needed to survive

What I need to survive
My resolve will be revived

I discovered the cure for my misery
By spending time with the unforgiving
Something more, so much more
Graceful than anything, anything living

Alone with the wind is where I hide
As I find my place among the stars
This moment makes me feel alive
It’s what I need to survive

Time stands still as my thoughts stop swimming
(Time stands still)
Time stands still as my thoughts stop swimming
(Time stands still)

My muscles may ache, my tendons may break
But tearing myself down to nothing
Has allowed me to become something more than this
Something greater…
This is where I may seem lost
But I promise you I’m more awake than ever
Awake than ever
I’m facing up towards the never ending expanse
And finding my place among the stars

Alone with the wind is where I hide
As I find my place among the stars
This moment makes me feel alive
It’s what I need to survive

Open soul, open mind
I’m finally focused on what’s inside
I’ve gained a new perspective
I’ve gained a new perspective

Open soul, open mind
I’m finally focused on what’s inside
I’ve gained a new perspective

4. Lifeline

Sometimes it’s best to keep it all in
Words carry no weight
If the sincerity is questioned

The kindest compliment can do the most damage
When all it does is for an illusion
Trapped inside an inflated sense of self-worth
It will explode leaving nothing but the burns
It will only get worse as it leads to hurt
As it leads to hurt, it leads to hurt

If there’s no meaning, there will be no inspiration
Another missed chance at molding aspirations
Don’t look away from their eyes
Everyone needs a restart from time to time to time
Don’t look away from their eyes
Push and teach and criticize (Push and teach and criticize)

Let them fall, let them fail
Feel the stings of failure (Feel the stings of failure)
Don’t look away from their eyes, from their eyes

A mistake is a chance to grow
Into something stronger and bolder
Than they may know
They’ll learn to stand on their own

They’ll speak up when no one mutes their mouth
Don’t throw the lifeline if no one calls for help
They’ll speak up when no one mutes their mouth
It means they’re navigating for themselves

Becoming self-sufficient is one of life’s biggest missions
Conflicts and stumbles are just obstacles towards making their own decisions
Their own decisions

Have more faith, they can battle the elements
Have more faith, don’t be the detriment
Have more faith, they can battle the elements
Have more faith, don’t be the detriment

Have more faith

5. Invisible Enemy

Wounded and tired and worried.
It’s like fighting an invisible enemy.
Wounded and tired and worried.
What lies ahead you thought you’d never see.
No one wants to end up in the clouds.
You can’t lose a battle you could never win.
You can’t finish a fight without the strength within.
Beliefs set aside, the uncertainty is what’s truly terrifying.
Be scared or be brave.
Where we end is all the same.
Be scared or be brave.
Memories are everything.
Be scared or be brave.
Reminiscing is for the living.
Pain is setting in.
It’s surrounding us.
Pain is surrounding us.
Your quiet heart makes us sink further.
We will accept our biggest fear.
We’re sinking further.
Escape into thin air.
You’ll find relief in being lost.

6. Quake

Keep moving, keep breathing
There’s no time to rest your head
Keep moving, keep breathing
Sometimes help seems so hopeless

Pack up your things. Run for your lives
In hopes of finding a place to hide

The ground quakes, the trees shake
They uproot all you know
The ground quakes, the trees shake
You can’t make it on your own

Imagine watching your heroes cower
Your father’s face sink lower
As he tries to save you for one more hour

Cover your tracks in the earth
Let’s hope they take the wrong turn

One torched home to another
Could you understand the terror?
One torched home to another
Could you understand the terror?

Watch them turn to ashes (The terror)
Disappear into the breeze
Terror, the terror

Can you empathize with their bloodshot eyes?
They’re fire red from the teardrops shed
Can you empathize with all those who tried
To pull their loved ones out of harm’s reach?

No, we have our own burdens to bear
No, we have our own burdens to bear

No, we have our own burdens to bear
We have our burdens to bear

Keep moving, keep breathing
There’s no time to rest your head
Keep moving, keep breathing
Sometimes help seems so hopeless

With your gaze turned towards the west
We all turn the other way
Relief is unattainable with words no one will say, no one will say

The ground quakes, the trees shake
They uproot all you know
The ground quakes, the trees shake
You can’t make it on your own

Can’t make it on your own
It’s time to reclaim your home

7. Coordinates

Let go of all that you perceive
Everything’s not as it seems
Let go of all that you perceive
Everything’s not as it seems

See today for what it is
Not what it can give
Make your way
You’re lost within
That’s no way to live

Good we’ve given
Bad we’ve committed
We believe we’re all forgiven

The mark of a man is not where he stands
Where he stands, where he stands when all is right in the world
It’s what he does when the chilling wind
The chilling wind, chilling wind threatens to break down his door

Inhale the bravery
Exhale, exhale the worry

His life’s on the edge but his soul survives
His sanity is stolen but he’s civil inside
They hold his feet to the fire
Hoping he’ll be inspired

The rocks at the bottom will know your name

Don’t let shame replace who you’ll be with who you are
Contempt is a weak metal for building anything of wonder
Ask a man on his deathbed what he truly believes
He will say it’s not the trophies or the places he’s seen

The unanswered questions leave the greatest impression

Let go of all that you perceive
Everything’s not what it seems

8. Generations

I hate the way the weight of your decisions
They weigh upon me, I won’t carry them on my shoulders
My knees may buckle, but my resolve is strong
I am the future and I’m here to prove you wrong

You are concerned with dragging me down
Everything in me won’t let me drown, won’t let me drown

What you decide has impact on you forever
It will cave in on you forever
You can’t ignore what surrounds you forever
You can’t ignore what surrounds you forever

What goes up must come down
It’s simple physics you see, the laws of gravity

I’ll stay above the water just to prove my persistence
I’m holding on to my desire to improve our existence

The remedy starts with me
It’s the logic we all need

Take hold and accept it if you want things to be different
Take hold and accept it if you want things to be different
Take hold, take hold, take hold and accept it
Take hold and accept it if you want things to be different

I’m waiting impatiently while your skin turns thin
You can’t ignore what surrounds you forever. Soon enough it will all cave in

Ideas built upon a weak base
Will slip away without a trace
Like a house that’s made of sand being torn
To the ground by the waves

I promise to always see things from a better perspective
One that won’t block those who chose another direction
And this promise to myself, I won’t let it go
(Won’t let it go, won’t let it go)
I’ll stand up, and take it all in
With open arms, I’ll accept what we’ve been given
And this promise to myself, I won’t let it go
(Won’t let it go, won’t let it go)

Won’t let it go, won’t let it go
Won’t let it go, won’t let it go

I won’t let it go
Won’t let it go, won’t let it go
I won’t let it go

This promise to myself, I won’t let it go
I won’t let it go, I-

Won’t let it go, won’t let it go
Won’t let it go, won’t let it go
I won’t let it go

9. Float

(This is where we start)
It’s time to wake up the fire inside
(This is where we start)
Ignite your mind, open your eyes

We all move like spirits in the wind, in the wind
We’ve been stripped of what used to be, be within, be within
If everyone had more soul, maybe we would have more control
We’re the ones to blame if everything stays the same, stays the same

Where’s the fire, the desire, an inherent right to stand up and fight?

Stand up
Stand up and fight
Stand up
I said stand up and fight

It’s time to set our blood to boil
Feel the heat rise inside

(This is where we start)
It’s time to wake up the fire inside
(This is where we start)
Ignite your mind, open your eyes

(Where did we, where did we go wrong?)
You can’t charge forward when your limbs will not listen
(Where did we, where did we go wrong?)
You can’t mount a comeback when you don’t know what you’re missing

It’s apathy turned into atrophy
A lesson learned in human anatomy

(This is where we start)
It’s time to wake up the fire inside
(This is where we start)
Ignite your mind, open your eyes
(This is where we start
Change has never started with silence
(This is where we start)
So stop telling us to be quiet

Wake up, wake up
Wake up the fire inside
Wake up, wake up
It’s time to open your eyes

10. Dangerous

The end will come
The end will come

Some will say the end will come
But I know it’s never ending
Words give meaning to my thoughts
What gives meaning to this feeling?

I know what I did, I know what I said
I know what I did, I know what I said

It’s dangerous, so dangerous
I’ve made friends with a stranger, it’s endangering us
It’s dangerous, so dangerous
I’ve made friends with a stranger, it’s endangering us

When what you love is taken away
You realize what you’re made of
You’ll have to find your way
You’ll have to scream and claw at the air
You strapped your pack to your back
And all the weight is yours to bear
The help we find is the hope we need
It’s the hand that guides us back
We can will ourselves to remember our word
But we all too quickly forget

Along the way I got lost
Now the way back home is overgrown
This isn’t an addictive thought
It’s a ravenous feeling, ravenous feeling
Conviction must be greater than life’s afflictions
I follow in my own footsteps
Rather than following classical conditioning

I wish I had the will to keep my word

I’m looking back to face what’s ahead (It’s dangerous)
I faced danger and it finally fled (It’s dangerous)
I’m looking back to face what’s ahead (It’s dangerous)
I faced danger and it finally fled (It’s dangerous)

11. Carbon Copy

This is our burden
The pain we endure

We must carry it together
It will soon become a memory
It’s staring us in the face
but we just turn the other way

Take the easy route while millions of people’s homes fall to the ground
Merciless and unforgiving as it sets us back
The truth could bury us all in the end

You and I walk carefully
As we lighten our step and hope that our tracks just disappear
We don’t want to leave an imprint
This can’t be what we’re known for

I’ll leave the world as it was given to me
Flowing full of life, filled with diversity
I’ll leave the world as it was given to me
Flowing full of life, filled with diversity
I can look with pride in my child’s eyes
And he will know
I helped preserve what may have died
And he will know
What I’ve done
(He will know, he will know)

We will look ahead
The trail I’ve left won’t lead the history books
Right back to me, right back to me
This generation won’t let it all
Just slip away, slip away
Don’t let it slip away

I’ll walk forward and sense the ground beneath me
The choice is mine, I need to make the right one
The earth may remember what we have done
The choice is mine, I need to make the right one

Terminadas las maquetas de Nueva Visión! +Mp3

Ayer en la tarde/noche pudimos concluir las maquetas de Nueva Visión, hemos trabajado durante todo un mes casi diariamente, porque hubo días en que la lluvia no nos permitió reunirnos o la corriente o algún problema personal X de alguno de nosotros. Además que Reynaldo, nuestro vocal melódico vive en la ciudad de Holguín, por lo que no pudo estar en el 100% de las sesiones. Comenzamos aproximadamente el 25 de Julio hasta ayer.

Estamos contentos con lo que humildemente hemos podido lograr, es obvio que aún nos falta mucho por mejorar en cuestión de técnicas y ejecución/producción, pero eso pienso que con el camino se vaya logrando, algunos proyectos nacen casi perfectos desde el inicio pero no son todos.

No quisimos incluir el cover a For All Eternity – Awake to the Sound pues es un cover al fin y decidimos dejarlo para las presentaciones en vivo (si es que llegamos a eso jaja).

Ahora nuestro esfuerzo va a estar encaminado a ensayar y dominar con los ojos cerrados las piezas e intentar ganar un espacio con Cultura local para ensayar con un audio responsable. Más adelante si Dios permite, intentaremos ingresar a la AHS.

Las maquetas están en la sección fija de acá Maquetas Demo Nueva Visión.
