The Empty Spot, the first EP by 230.

Absolutely everything that makes a sound here was done by me pretending to be a band, including recording, producing, mixing, mastering and flat-out screaming at the wall.

LonerJuan Uruguay

Every now and then, a new song will pop up here, hopefully in ever improving quality. It might take time but it'll keep on happening. I won't let this become one of the many derelict, abandoned holes of the internets.

Also, thousands have asked and it is true: I used to upload as "230", and those tracks will remain for historical purposes.

Enough rambling for now.

Track Name: Lead
There’s nothing to save now
Turn the page
Make no sense
You’re walking away now
Run away…
Just away…
As if you had something in mind

I can make the
Madness go away
I can make some space
Up in your head

It roams in the distance
Makes you afraid
Are you scared?
You check for a pulse now
And you wait…
Sit and wait…
As you look at them… you just smile…

I can make the
Madness go away
I can make some space
Up in your head

(Just one more push and I’m gone) x 8

I can make the
Madness go away
I can make some space
Up in your head

I can make the
Madness go away
(I can clean the mess
Up your head)
I can make
I can make
I can make the madness go away!
Track Name: Shout
Of all the reasons
That you gave me
Carry on…
Let it go… (let it go…)

Just pointing fingers
At those strangers
Blame it all…
Die alone

And don't you know
That all the people
Told you so
You look at all the pretty faces
They sing along
But no, you don't
Shout!

I just had enough of you
They all had enough of you
Just enough, enough with you
No one’s listening anymore to you…
You’re falling through…
Nothing to lose…
This whole mess was for naught!

And don't you know
That all the people
Told you so
You look at all the pretty faces
They sing along
But no, you don't
Shout!

With all this
Crawling into spaces
Just a thought…
What’s the point? (What’s a point?)

As if somebody
Paid attention
It’s not wrong…
Just digging down the hole too tight…
(You’re digging down the hole too far…)


And don't you know
That all the people
Told you so
You look at all the pretty faces
They sing along
But no, you don't
Shout!
Track Name: Road Back Home
Bury me with thought
As it once began
Let us be alone
What is not to hate?

Break the fate and make some sense
It’s falling back right into place
The tides are now where they were
Meant to be when pieces
Went all out of fucking shape
The nightmares seem to fade away

Take me down
On the road back home
One more glimpse of yesterday
Can’t go back
When it’s all long gone
All the things we’ll never say

And every night’s like the other
And all the time just another one
It’s rage or death or the gutter
I never thought it would end this way

As it once began
Let us be alone
What is not to hate?
Bury me with thought
As it once began

Take me down
On the road back home
One more glimpse of yesterday
Can’t go back
When it’s all long gone
All the things we’ll never say

Take me down
On the road back home
One more glimpse of yesterday
Can’t go back
When it’s all long gone
All the things we´ll never…

Say!!!
Track Name: Burning Alive
Break a fist on the ground
Light a spark and wait
Till all the memories turn to dust
Rage and silence

We won’t make it alive
As the flames erase
The names and dates I left behind

But it feels like breaking down
I’m getting out
‘Cause I’m sick of blaming you
I’m wasting life
I’m burning alive!!!

Nightmares crawling left and right
Pushing in disguise
Grinding teeth and swelling scars
Wait for nothing

All those days of standing by
Never felt it right
I didn’t ask for all that much

But it feels like breaking down
I’m getting out
‘Cause I’m sick of blaming you
I’m wasting life
I’m burning alive!!!

I’m getting out
Burning alive
And I’m sick of blaming you

But it feels like breaking down
I’m getting out
‘Cause I’m sick of blaming you
I’m wasting life
I’m burning alive!!!

I’m getting out
‘Cause I’m sick of blaming you
I’m wasting life
I’m burning alive!!!
Track Name: The Edge
… Ever am I
Is it out there?
Daring, a light
Hanging on to you

Oh, and it’s dancing around
You leave us on the edge
Heaven’s not the same thing as the sky
And nothing’s stopping you
(You brought this on to you)

Drown…
Make it alive
Breaking inside
(Burning my pride)

Staring at the edge
I’ve seen it all begin
There’s nothing I can change
But do it all again
I swear that I will stay
I’m here
Many years away

Not a lightning in sight
No grieving on the end
Not a lousy good night
The darkness you’d expect

On a last wave by
Any blind eye cries
Let it have my pride
What is life but just

Escape
Ashes to flames
Drive me insane
(Drowning in rage)

Staring at the edge
I’ve seen it all begin
There’s nothing I can change
But do it all again
I swear that I will stay
I’m here
Many years away

Breaking inside
Make it alive
(Tear me apart)
Track Name: The Empty Spot
Brace the seams they left behind
Might as well be dead and back
Maybe now sometime

Try and wish and let me down
Cry the name for wasted blood
Maybe now sometime

But it’s just away
Pride is birth is self-decay

I pray to the empty spot
Break amends
Shine away

I seem to regret sometimes
Lie awake
Sit and burn

And I’m just glad to be the scapegoat
And I will let you rip my sick throat
And as you toss and you turn
I’m just waving you away

It’s just a knot on the rope
So you can dry any hope
I’m just glad to be awake
Set me free!!!

But it’s just a waste
Rise and wave and float away

I scream to the empty spot
Break amends
Shine away

I seem to regret sometimes
Lie awake
Sit and burn

Free me!!!
