que hay un par malísimos, pero un par que están buenos y les van a servir a los que renegaban con el photoshop.

Eterno, o barro tal vez.

Si no canto lo que siento
me voy a morir por dentro
he de gritarle a los vientos hasta reventar
aunque sólo quede tiempo en mi lugar
si quiero me toco el alma
pues mi carne ya no es nada
he de fusionar mi resto con el despertar
aunque se pudra mi boca por callar
ya lo estoy queriendo
ya me estoy volviendo
canción barro tal vez....
y es que esta es mi corteza
donde el hacha golpeará
donde el río secará para callar
ya me apuran los momentos
ya mi sien es un lamento
mi cerebro escupe ya el final del historial
del comienzo que tal vez reemprenderá
si quiero me toco el alma
pues mi carne ya no es nada
he de fusionar mi resto con el despertar
aunque se pudra mi boca por callar
ya lo estoy queriendo
ya me estoy volviendo canción
barro tal vez...
y es que esta es mi corteza
donde el hacha golpeará
donde el río secará para callar
