I come in peace

Where is the line between use and abuse? Call it necessity. Listen. Be quiet. There are a few weeds in every garden. Aren't you vain? Don't sleep with the candles lit. There are people in America who have never heard of Coney Island. How do you top that? Smile. You're on camera. Be careful for what you ask for. The game never changes. Bound by the rules, keep on playing. Close calls made me thankful. There are some things that aren't clear for a while. Can it be done over and over again? Smile

The bossman tells me that I’m not doing my job The bossman tells me that I ain’t working that hard. I tell him it’s fine cuz he’s the only one getting paid. My lady left me saying she wanna be free My lady left me saying she ain’t for free. I tell her it’s fine cuz she’s still yelling at me. I’m walkin’ a straight line that I can’t find. I’m so lost, the neon lights left me blind. My life’s just fine I’m sweating for my rent to stay. I’m happy now but I know that One day Gonna be hungry Still swingin’ away

Wide awake today is mine. Breathe fresh, start anew Even if the sun hides Wide awake it’s still mine Even if I’m beaten hard. Even if my dreams grow cold and hard. Even if life swings this hard. Even if everything falls apart I once knew what to do when I was beaten down Took a breath, raised my head with scars and scabs All but dead.

There was a time when everything was a bed of roses. That was childhood. We were told to dream big. Everything was in our grasp. We knew nothing of the world around us. Then everything came crashing. Maybe we’ll wake up and smell the coffee What is it really? The world has changed. People stay the same. My imagination against your reality. Believe in what you want. I believe I will Make your bed of roses. Have no doubts. Keep on dreaming.

Somewhere no one knows A smile that never ends forever glows As the rain drops on the windows You’d feel her heart really close She’d stop by and make you smile Walk you down to the bus stop to school She’d ask how you’ve been And pray to God to guide you still Beyond the clouds, Paradiso Swimming in oceans of chocolato Don’t you worry about Carlomagno Just keep playing your heavenly lotto Somewhere no one know A laugh full of colorful rainbows Her sweetness I can compare to angels helping you out of despair She’d never ever forget to call you at home to check up on you A golden heart so pure Mamang Rosing, we love you. She’s been there from the very start And now she rests with countless stars We will never be torn apart She’ll forever be in my heart (Life lasts for a second) Un Segundo

Would you be part of the wrong story This was the case with people I knew So I said Goodbye and no one knew I never looked back to those same old stories I knew Breathe in Breathe out This is the story of the sound. And then she left. Would she come back? It’s not what you would expect. But what would you do? I hear the wind blowing. I’ll listen for you. A sound that’s so true. Baby, my muse is you. Move on don’t look back. No more revisions. Behind every story is the second truth. Expect nothing less.

The seasons made its plans Leaving me stripped to the flesh. Spring never came In Western summers, the winters fall. Hey April Did you not have me in your mind?

Patawarin ninyo aming kibong maliwag Dahil buhat namin ang pag-asa ninyo Pag hindi nagagawa ang gusto mo Baon sa loob ang balak ay masyadong malabo Tunay ang buhay namin. Ito ang binigay sa atin Tunay ang ilaw natin Ito ang binigay sa atin Malalaman ninyo lahat ng lihim Sa likha ng tao. Sa awit natin Hawak ninyo ang ilaw ng katutubo Maliwanag ang landas Sobra ang silaw Nabulag ka uli At sa iyo ang ilaw ay hawak mo.

Shadows point that you’d be there. Everywhere. In my dreams In my sleep Over there. When I chase you, and you run It feels like staring into the sun I believed in every love song Losing my way in those fantasies With bright lights, sunshine, daisies Once I lied to myself Maybe we’ll find each other. Just not in this lifetime.

Let me tell you another story. This one’s not another movie. Mama and Papa built a house In the land of dreams They woke up Empty and shattered. Money took over No one could sleep There wasn’t enough For the children. For school Glass ceiling on top Race to the bottom Friends began to judge “You’re too cheap” But they wouldn’t know. When you need, your anger shows. Truth is bitter when all life’s been sweet.

And when the pain don’t stop. You just keep on going. Firing with guns blazing. And no one gonna take you down.

about

"Alien Blue" is a multimedia release by Sunset Afire.
Feeling like a stranger in the place one calls home, this record presents encounters with a new global culture coming into awareness.
The fourteen-track album contains new music. Blending influences from the Philippine Islands, Africa, and Brooklyn, new sounds are being explored for voice and guitar.
The booklet contains lyrics, stories, poems, and photographs from travels all over the world.
The film documents encounters with three different lands that speak to the unity of the people of the world.
