"Unreal" as written by Cristian Machado, Marc Rizzo and Dave Chavarri....
Separate your mind
Overcome in time
I'm taking what is mine
Tenemos que pelear

Nothing is all, I thought I was there
I'm finding myself going nowhere
Is this a mistake?
I cannot relate to what is fake

Is this what I get for learning to speak?
For opening eyes and digging in deep?
Is this what I get for being reborn from the norm?

I don't want to shine; light will make us blind
I don't want to feel unreal
What have I become, born under the sun?
Planets will converge for you.

I'll try to break you!
I'll try to break you!
I'll try to break you!

What would it take to not look away?
To open my eyes and stare in the face
To learn from what's real
I'm trying to deal, but it's worthless:

Is this what I get for learning to speak?
For opening eyes and digging in deep?
Is this what I get for being reborn from the norm?

I don't want to shine; light will make us blind
I don't want to feel unreal
What have I become, born under the sun?
Planets will converge for you

Pushing and grinding is twisting my mind frame
El tempo que pesa nos tumba la mesa
why ahora que es nuestro, mi vida te apuesto,
bet my life!

I don't want to shine; light will make us blind
I don't want to feel unreal
What have I become, born under the sun?
Planets will converge for you

I don't want to feel!
I don't want to feel!
I don't want to feel!
Unreal

    General Commenti love the lyrics for this song esp the part -
    Nothing is all, I thought I was there
    I'm finding myself going nowhere
    Is this a mistake?
    I cannot relate to what is fake

    Is this what I get for learning to speak?
    For opening eyes and digging in deep?
    Is this what I get for being reborn from the norm?

    General Commentyea this song is going to be the third single from Revolution Revolucion, my guess is it will be released around July. It's a kick ass song, better What Comes Around, but nothing can beat God Save Us!

    General Commenti have now, they edited most of the screaming and the actual song sounds a bit different from the one on the album.

    General CommentI think it could be about someone trying to change themself but not wanting to feel fake or to "shine". I wonder what shine could be, sticking out? or being liked? Anyway i think this person dosen't want to be in the spotlight.
    OR
    This person is different from everyone else and they are trying to find the truth out about something or someone and that person or thing is too complicated. Thats just what i get from it but yours might be different.

    General Commenti heard a version of this song where he doesn't scream at all. there's also a piano during the second part of the chorus. i think it sounds a lot better and even more powerful than the cd version. it was on a sample cd for ozzfest one year i believe. anyway, my favorite ill nino song by far.
