about

The Destroyed Room Barcelona, Spain

The Destroyed Room es una banda de rock de toda la vida, de las que tienen sentido en la carretera. Por eso no han dejado de tocar y sacar EP's cumpulsivamente desde 2009. Ahora nos llega "The Magic Indian Scene" (Boston Pizza Records, 2012), su primer largo, que deja clara la evolución de un grupo que está constantemente en movimiento. ... more

Track Name: Minnesota
I made room for you in my closet / Your shirts are mixed with mine / And my pants are mixed with panties and bras / I made room for you in my bookshelf / Your russian novels are mixed with Carver / And what was simple now it's poetic / I make a mixtape for you in mi hi-fi / I'm looking for some songs that you might like / But Minnesota is much confusing now
Track Name: City Of Ruins
I've been drifting through old notebooks and I
can't help but feeling that there's something that we left behind
In this constant obsession of never looking back
And I keep telling myself that it's been a bad day
And a bike ride could fix it up
And playing some records will help me spend the night
Without thinking too much
City of ruins, your rules are cruel
You can burn dictionaries but you can't burn out the words
All our memories are songs that we sing in the nights
And I keep telling myself that they're going to save us
But it's not easy to see the stars
It's never been easy to follow your dreams down
I forgot my name on the way
Track Name: Years Like Sheeps
No birds in the street in this grey new year's eve
I'm counting years like sheeps in my sleep
I have a diet planned, just drinkin' after lunch
And maybe next summer I could get some air
Days are so long lately locked in an office
And I don't take coffee so pauses are short
Now I'm sorrounded by good friends
Drinkin' like there's no tomorrow
But they don't know that I'll be gone when I'll overcome all this sorrow
Days are so long lately locked in an office
And I don't take coffee so pauses are short
Track Name: Hide The Fear
How much time can we stand taking bullets in the heart? / Rising hands, like our fathers did one time / I keep sayin’ that we got something that no one can take back but my dear you can’t hide the fear in a smile / You said "just keep the wheels on turnin’, this has happened before" / That my little waning pride and this songs in my mind are my main reason to get up / But what if I just die tryin’ to touch the sky? / Would you be proud of the man that slept with you everynight? / We got to find a place to begin again / Where we could hide the fear / And my love is neverending / It’s my school and it’s my grave / I can keep on pretending that I just forgot my name / Take my trembling hands / Feel my pounding veins / It’s time to tear apart this chains that kept us prisoners for so long / We gotta find a place to begin again / Where we could hide the fear
Track Name: Bad Memory
It's not that I didn't like it / I'm sure I loved your birthday present / But my bad memory keeps fucking me up / I know that time in the zoo / It was not my ex, I was with you / But don't ask me where we went to eat / Oh yeah, I remember that restaurant / Where I asked to move at my flat / But my bad memory keeps fucking me up / I admit I forgot our song / Was Avalon or Head On? / I'm pretty sure we danced both / But don't hesitate I won't forget to love you
