Self Portrait

(by Daniel Triana)

April 27, 2013

From the EP "Self-Portrait" by Daniel Triana. Five songs (four vocal, one instrumental) dark, goth, electronic, low-fi and atmospheric.

 

Like feathers in the wind

People come and go

Like water pouring in

People come right in

Flashes of bright white

Flashes in the middle of the night

A slight rain in the wind

Some people almost come and go

Like dust, being swept away

People want a new day

One step closer to something

One step further from nothing

Taking my time

Might seem strange to some

But one thing's for sure

I'm taking my time because...it's mine

My time is mine

 

A Murder of Crows

April 27, 2013

From the EP "Self-Portrait" by Daniel Triana. Five songs ((four vocal, one instrumental) dark, goth, electronic, low-fi and atmospheric.

 

Dark faint lights flicker

Blurring in and out of sight

Out of focus, out of sight

Deep dark sounds reverberate

Building on feeling, building on fate

Low slow sounds flicker

what's all of this?

A Murder of Crows

 

Flesh and Bone

April 27, 2013

From the EP "Self-Portrait" by Daniel Triana. Five songs ((four vocal, one instrumental) dark, goth, electronic, low-fi and atmospheric.

 

Tiny lights glisten

Sparkle shine glow alive

Metallic colors seem warm

Precious stones formed

by flesh and bone - raw

Aged by the years

Shaped by the fears

Softened by the tears

Carving and forming

cutting and brushing

Sharp edges retain their strength

 

Sometimes

Making something from nothing

Sometimes producing

Sometimes consuming

Seeing something where there is nothing

Sometimes observing

Sometimes recording

Feeling something, I swear its something

Sometimes believing

Sometimes deceiving

Do you feel the days - just flow?

Do you feel the days - just go?

Sometimes creating

Sometimes destroying

Sometimes building

Sometimes annoying

Sometimes enjoying

Sometimes worrying

 

 

"The Study of Objects" by Daniel Triana (2/1/13) Lyrics:

Taking time to breath

My time to see

Right before you leave

staring at the sea

 

Soaring over you

Flying over you

No time to talk

No time to talk

 

Running over you

Running straight for you

No time to fight

No time to fight

 

Crystal eyes, sharp stares

Loud crashes, too much to bare

Music/Lyrics: "For A Million Years" by Daniel Triana 11/2012
You feel like home
So warm, so warm - like home
Feels like a new year
Feels like Spring, is here

Your eyes see right through me
Through the smoke filled room
The crystal liquid sky
Melts before me

Your dark silhouette
Stands before me
I can lose myself in your eyes
For A Million Years...

------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Music/Lyrics: "From Within" by Daniel Triana 10/2012

From within I can feel - a sense of being
From within I can feel - life building
From within I can see - your eyes
From within I can feel - your heart
From within I can feel - a new start

Outside - I see bright lights clashing
Outside - I see bright lives smashing
Outside - I can feel you slipping away
Outside - I can see you flying away

"Hand In Hand"
From "Rough Sketches and Early Works"
Music and Lyrics by Daniel Triana Circa 1987

It's all a matter of what we can
Resembling the extended hand.
The deep terrain of a foreign land
The wrinkles follow a definite plan

She told me my future in all this
She me told my fate and what it is
and of certain things that I missed
The deep terrain and wrinkles and this

Follow the lines closely she said
I nodded and bowed my head
All those millions stories she said
Its tells the past or future she said

Hand in Hand, hand in hand

All the world lies in the palm
A group of shadows singing a psalm


----------------------------------------------------------------------
"Picture The Landscapes"
From "Rough Sketches and Early Works"
Music and Lyrics by Daniel Triana Circa 1987

You plus me makes two
but the drum beats for you
There is the light and a dark
You're the light, guess who's the dark?
Thoughts are inverted, we're oposites but distorted.

Picture the landscapes
the shadows lay behind
while the bright light smiles right through

Positive and negative attract,
I know its a fact
its just a natural balance
but the others tilt our balance
a struggle with no right or wrong
a struggle we wish will never end

Picture the landscapes
The drum beats for you
Its waves flow for you
You plus me makes two
but the drum beats for you


----------------------------------------------------------------------
"Abstract Mind"
From "Rough Sketches and Early Works"
Music and Lyrics by Daniel Triana Circa 1987

Deep inside
Is a small image of your mind
Is it too abstract?
For your mind to find?
Find it and stare at it.

Can you understand what I feel?
Can you sense what I'm sending to you?
Can you see?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

"Deep" (SINGLE)

Music and Lyrics by Daniel Triana. 2012/1989

Deep in your heart
Lies something...I can not see
Deep in your heart
Lies something...I wish was part of me

Look through the fields
Look through the grass
Look through the dust
Look through the glass

Deep in the sea
Lies something...I think its you and me
Deep in the sea
Lies something...A part of you and me

Dive through the fields
Dive through the grass
Dive through the dust
Dive through the glass

"A Different Christmas"

From the NEW full-length album release "A New Beginning"

Music and Lyrics by Daniel Triana. Circa 1994

 

Are you ready for an alternative Christmas?

Are you ready for a different Christmas?

A different Christmas. A different Christmas.

Even Santa needs to dance.

"The Thin Man and Weak"

From the previously unreleased 4-song EP - "Dreams In Transition".

Music and Lyrics by Daniel Triana. Circa 1987

 

The third man, so brave

entered the dark room.

The third man still brave

sat down in a corner.

He spoke to a man named Weak,

who told him stories so blue.

Relating the words with thoughts,

he told him stories so blue.

Weak was born alone,

but long ago he was strong

Weak worked so long

Now he seems so old.

The third man, now shaking

leaves the dark room

The third man, no longer brave

seems to have changed.

The Third man and Weak.

The Third man and Weak.

"Thoughts Without End"

From the previously unreleased 4-song EP - "Dreams In Transition".

Daniel Triana circa 1986/88

 

This image, you conjure in my mind.

Your image, it conquers my mind.

Without end, without end

What you speak, flows in the wind.

Reaching ears, having effects without end, without end.

Thoughts without end, thoughts without end.

Thoughts without end, without end.

The world lies empty, it seems without end.

As pale, as a theory.

These thoughts without end.

These thoughts without end.

Watch it turn so cold.

The frozen souls were sold.

These thoughts without end.

Thoughts without end, without end.

 ---------------------------------------------------------------

 

"Next to the Bay"

From the previously unrelease 4-song EP: "Dreams In Transition".

Daniel Triana circa 1986/9

 

Falling raindrops on my head.

A view, of the past instead.

Bring life to those once dead.

In the name of man he said.

Next to the bay, next to the bay

He knows what is right.

He knows the light and walks home alone at night.

Nothing is out of my way.

He told me this one day.

I didn't know what to say.

I lay next to the bay,

I lay next to the bay.

Next to the bay...

My Obession (2010 Single) Originally 1995

Music and Lyrics by Daniel Triana

 

You don't want to dance with me, but I still want to be with you

My obsession, who do you think you are?

My obsession, when all I want is to be with you

 

You don't want to be seen with me, but I still want to be with you

You don't want to speak to me, but I still want to be with you

  ---------------------------------------------------------

 

Rebirth (2010 Single) Originally 1995

Lyrics and Music by Daniel Triana

 

I can't believe my eyes, your still alive

I thought you were a dream, just a passing dream

yah...

I can't believe tonight, I feel so alive

Now I know you're for real, we can learn how to feel

yah...

Take my hand,

and close your eyes

Let's feel inside,

the rebirth, the rebirth

 -----------------------------------------------------------------

 

Truly Deceived (2010 Single) Originally 1995

Music and Lyrics by Daniel Triana

 

Pouring in like rain, you filled up my brain

and I refuse to believe, that I was truly deceived

And I refuse to believe, that this was all because of me

 

As I look deep inside, I find the problems I can not hide

My heart aches without change, there is no life without change.

 -----------------------------------------------------------------

 

Lyrics for:
"IN THE MIDDLE" by Daniel Triana 1999/2007
From The CD "Untitled 2.0"

In the middle of the sea, waves crash around me.
I'm lost, I'm lost. Come and find me.

I'm looking for you. Come and find me.
I'm waiting for you. Come and find me.

The sun goes down, the wind pulls my sails - gentle sounds.
It's like a cold hand has been placed on me.
And it's pointing to where I should be.

But I'm still trying to decide - make up my own mind!
But the cold is called "Reality".

The cold and the wet don't matter because, everything is fine.
The scenes in this place belong in another - place and time

------------------------------------------------------------- 


"Inside This Zoo" by Daniel Triana 1996 from the CD
TriAna: The Color of Sound

Deeper and deeper, into the blue
I lose myself, inside this zoo
of colors, shapes, smells and sensations
colors, shapes, smells and sensations

Swimming through the air
I take in all the sunshine
when I think of you
all that I dream is true

As I dive into the sunshine
It makes me feel so blind
to the worries inside of me
the problem and inadequacies

Breathing in this air
makes me feel so aware
why angels start to dance
all the meaning in a glance
------------------------------------------------------------

"Spirit Dance" by Daniel Triana 1996 from the CD
TriAna: The Color of Sound

Electricity in the sky
energy enters my mind
soaring feelings rise and peak
revitalizing the weak

Flowing through me like a vibe
my spirit starts to dance
cutting through me like your eyes
my spirit enters a trance

spirit dance, in trance
spirit dance, in trance
------------------------------------------------------------

"One More Kiss" by Daniel Triana 1996 from the CD
TriAna: The Color of Sound

Your scent fills the air
I can't help but notice
You move through the air
I can't help but notice

You must be deep
you must be sweet
but that don't mean
you are what I need
You're not what I need

Quick, before the sun come up
one more kiss
it's a quiet, calm night
one more kiss

Quick, before the sunrise
stare into my eyes
it's a quiet, calm night
one more kiss
------------------------------------------------------------

"Blue Angels" by Daniel Triana 1996 from the CD
TriAna: The Color of Sound

Blue Angels fill up the sky
blue angels start to dive

Back down, into the real world
back down, and into the sea

Blue angels fill up the sea
blue angels swimming to eternity

Break down, into my real world
break down, into my deep blue sea
-----------------------------------------------------------

"Inside of Me" by Daniel Triana 1996 from the CD
TriAna: The Color of Sound

Sometimes, inside of me
I feel happy
Sometimes, inside of me
I see pictures
Sometimes, inside of me
I hear sounds
Sometimes, inside of me
I feel ecstacy

Like feathers falling, from the sky
your voice, your breath
tickles my ear

Like gentle notes, through the sky
your name, your sound
fills me with fear

-------------------------------------------

 

"Born With Wings" by Daniel Triana
(2010 Single) Originally 1995/1999 from the Unreleased CD: TriCD06 Daniel Triana: "Moody"

Don't fly away,
I want you to stay

As I look up at the sky
I see angles...
Flying around

As I look up at the sky
I wonder why...
They don't come down

It seems like you were born with wings

As I look out toward the sea
I feel the devil...
dragging me down
Down, down, down

I hurt inside, I hurt inside,
Inside, inside

It seems like you were born with wings

Born with wings answer me this,
What are the chances in my life...
To learn to fly
------------------------------------------------------------

"You Deny Me" by Daniel Triana 1996 from the CD
TriAna: The Color of Sound

you deny me
of the life I've always deserved
you deny me
of the times I needed to hurt
but I need you
like a fish needs water
but I need you
like a bird needs to fly
but I need you
like I need my mind
but I need you
like I need a waste of time
you deny me
all the life i need to live
you deny me
the feelings I need inside
------------------------------------------------------------

"Flows and Glides" by Daniel Triana 1996 from the CD
TriAna: The Color of Sound

sharp bright lights bleed into red
shadows cast and form on your bed
your wings flutter
and the wind blows in my hair
as the sky opens wide
my love flows and glides
------------------------------------------------------------

"Angel" by Daniel Triana 1996 from the CD
TriAna: The Color of Sound

Angel, no wonder
You're out of my life
You're an angel

It's no wonder
I was blind
I ran out of time
...but when I close my eyes

I can still feel your sighs
I can still feel your breath
I can still feel your lips
------------------------------------------------------------

"Burning Bright" by Daniel Triana 1996 from the CD
TriAna: The Color of Sound

Burning Bright
is my enemy
indecision keeps catching me

My heart needs to grow
my mind needs to breath
my eyes must clearly show
all the world's race against death

Burning Bright
is my enemy
life unexpectedly keeps grabbing me

My urges need to implode
my head can't bow down
my brain needs to explode
so ideas can finally be laid down
