The four "spoken" tracks are in Spanish, with English translations as follows:

  • Spoken #1: I always wonder, who am I? Why do I do it? I don't know. It's because there's no other way. Sometimes I ask God and he answers. The simple answer for simple questions. That's how I see God. As a question.
  • Spoken #2: My sacred heart. I speak of my heart as if it were an entity seperate from me. I think the same thing about pain. It's like an evil spirit outside of me that's always with me. The pain that I feel is like a weight that guides me. There's no way to destroy it. It's my eternal opera.
  • Spoken #3: I want to triumph over you. I want respect. I want it all. God will help me to help myself. I don't know. Dreams and wishes become reality. Peace and love for humanity.
  • Spoken #4: The surreal and suspect dream -- I want to clearly remember it, but I can't. The dream lives in me. My desires control me. My thoughts follow. What is it that stops me from killing, from thinking, from recognizing my destiny? Nothing, absolutely nothing.
