Bello Ruido

Sal de una vez de el trono de tu troka

No me importa nada la lana que ganas

Ni como brillan tus ruedas cromadas

Solo me importa el respeto que tienes

For your brothers and your sisters and your Pachamama

No me importa porque voy volando

Voy bailando, tocando, cantando, pescando

Y si, amando

Si, si, amo

Si amo, amo

Mira como amo de la silla de mi bici

Mi silla es de cuero y mi trasero de acero

Bailando entre el trafico aventandose besitos

Mira como amo como ninja guitarando

Mira como amo como ninja gingerando

Enrollandome en la majia de la calle

Y el bello ruido de un pueblo entero

Vacillo de coches por sol y por noche

Con el ritmo de los reyes y las reinas de cadenas

Latiendo corazones y profundidas respiraciones

Y la pa pa pa pa cha cha cha cha ma ma ma ma mama ma ma ma ma ma ma

Pachamama

 

(English translation)

Get your ass out of the throne of your big truck for once

I don’t care how much money you make

Or how your chrome wheels shine

All that matters to me is your respect for

Your brothers and your sisters and Mother Earth

I don’t care because I go flying

Dancing, playing, singing, fishing

And loving

Yes yes I love

Yes I love I love

Look how I love from the seat of my bike

With my leather seat and my ass of steel

Dancing through the traffic blowing you kisses

Look how I love like a guitarring ninja

Look how I love like a gingering ninja

Wrapping myself in the magic of the street

And the beautiful noise of an entire town

Empty of cars by sun and by night

With the rhythm of the kings and queens of chains

Beating hearts and breathing deep

and the Pachamama


 

Bird Fly, Bird Fall (Dreams)

Fighting for the surface, under an indifferent sky

Sometimes I feel, even God has forgotten me

and it’s hard

Bird fly, bird fall, tumbling tumbling tumbling without grace

and it’s hard, and it’s na-na-na-na

If the goal of living is to be happy free and strong

And it’s true what they say, struggle makes you stronger

Why not just be happier when it’s hard

As long as you’re falling

Why not just fall, right down into a groove?

As long as you’re mumbling

Why not just say “I know it’s hard but I’m gonna groove anyway?”

Why not, just be happier, happier, happier, happier when it’s hard

Sometimes I feel dreams are just dreams

Sometimes I feel dreams create reality

So I dream, I dream, I d-d-d-d-d-d-d-d-d

Sometimes I feel, sometimes I feel, sometimes I feel

Sometimes I fee–e-e-e-e–e–e-e–el

If I knew the ending, would I understand?

I sure would like to think so, but I can’t say for sure

Cuz it’s hard and I dream, and I dream cuz it’s hard

Sometimes I feel, dreams are just dreams

 

 

Celestial Bodies

I feel the seasons changing

Big big Sun says “Fly ay ay ay ayayay”

Big big moon is pullling me

Big big moon is pulling me

Big big moon is pulling me

And she’s…

Here comes Venus

So alluring

A little bit hard to get

And she’s

Pulling me pulling me pulling me pulling me

Pulling me off the ground

One thing I love about the Sun

Quintessential daytime being

One thing I love about the Moon

Always changing, always coming back

One thing I love about Venus

Quintessential universal planetary lover

And she’s

Turning me turning me turning me

Turning me on

Heart is racing mind is melting thoughts escaping wind is helping

Skies are clearing leaves are falling hands are buzzing simple breathing

One thing I love about the Earth

Canyon carving waterfalling butterflying honey dripping

Celestial Bodies are turning me on

 

Dick Cheney

Dick Cheney, Dick Cheney, Dick Cheney, Dick Cheney, Dick Cheney, oh Dick Cheney

He needs our love, he needs our love

He needs our love, he needs some love

L-O-V-E that’s what he needs

So we can wake up and be free

Start with your heart

Start off slowly with your heart not your head

Five minutes before breakfast

Five minutes before bed

And when you can love him the whole day through

Why not try the night time too?

So fun to say but so hard to do

Dick Cheney, Dick Cheney, Dick Cheney, Dick Cheney

Don’t chain me

Oh don’t chain me

Don’t chain me man

I’m tryin to love you

Men like Dick they need more love

Men like Dick they need more love

Men like Dick they need more love

Men like Dick they need more love

Dick Cheney, Dick Cheney, Dick Cheney, Dick Cheney

I wanna love him

Like only a mama could love him

I wanna say, “coochie coochie coochie coo, my little Dicky-Poo”

Dick Cheney, Dick Cheney, Dick Cheney, Dick Cheney

 

Froggy Babies

Uno dos tres quatro cinco seis siete ocho nueve diez

¡Ay yai yai!

May I suggest you take some medication

It will make your world seem brighter

One pill two pill three pill four

May I suggest you take a couple more

More more more more

And if the first one makes you nauseous

May I suggest you take another one

And if the second one makes you cautious

May I suggest you take another one

And if the third one takes you hostage

May I suggest you take another one

And if the fourth one makes your legs fall off

May I suggest you count your blessings

Cuz you coulda been an amphibian

How do you think the froggy mommy felt

When all the little froggy babies had too many legs?

Para de hacer drogas que te van a hacer mal

Hills of my home

In the hills of my home, some rainy day

One little flower, shining through the gray

Shining and shining as if to say

Come lie down beside me put an ear to the ground

Put the other to the sky and listen to the sound

Listen babe, I said listen baby

This is the beautifulness I been trying to show

The bottom of Hermit Creek where I been sharing a prayer with you

Daring you to dare me to dare you to daydream

And I try to let go

And I try to hold on

Hoy, es la ultima vez que te digo adios

Adios adios adios

Ever since then I been standing on my toes

Trying to see just where it goes

But nobody nobody nobody knows

 

Little Doors (Kiss the World)

By Eco and Kipchoge

 

Boom, Boom, Boom Boom

Sometimes I wish I could close your eyes

Kiss your ears and fill them up with lies

About how I saved the world

By killing all the bad guys

And we all have little doors that only open from the inside

And we all have little doors that only open when we’re good and ready

Boom, Boom, Boom Boom

I’m standing naked in the thunder

And I hope I’m struck by lightening

Blast me back to consciousness

And grapple with the tightening

And we all have little doors that only open from the inside

And we all have little doors that only open when we’re good and ready

Falling fallling fallling

And there is no end

I met a pixie in the forest

And she knew just what I’d done

She forgave me instantly

And made me want to run

And kiss the world

Over and over and over again

And kiss the world

Over and over and over and over and over again

Y voy

Solita caminando

Buscando los brazos de mi amor

And we all have little doors that only open from the inside

And we all have little doors that only open when we’re good and ready

 

No Intentions

I got no intentions baby

I got no intentions of ever leavin this place

So won’t you give it to me one time

Give it to me two, give it to me 3 times

Give it to me true, I got no intentions

Somewhere in the world right now

There is a bomb, ready to blow

I got no intentions do anything about it

No intentions doing anything to stop it

No intentions doing anything to change the situation

On the contrary

I’m gonna implement the vibrations

Catalyze the creation

Oversee the detonation

So won’t you give it to me 10 times, give it to me 9

Give it to me 8 times, give it to me 7,6,5,4,3,2,1 it’s gonna blow!

Gonna turn critical mass into loving energy

At the speed of light times the speed of light

Neutron peace bomb

It was a chain reaction it was a beautiful sound

Every living thing is gonna feel it

Every living thing is gonna spread it around

This is ground zero, that’s why I’m staying

Hoping you’re with me, that’s why we’re playing

We are in the thick of it

We are we are we are we are

I got no intentions of letting you go

I got no intentions of letting you leave

I got no intentions of ever letting you outta here

I’m gonna put thorns in your tire, sugar in your tank

Love in your letters, pacificists in your ranks

I got no intentions baby

I got no intentions of ever going away

I got no intentions of ever moving to space

I got no intentions of ever going to war

I got no intentions of not saying what for?

So won’t you give it to me one time, give it two me two

Give it to me 3 times, give it to me before we’re outta time

 

Reckon I Do

That year winter came early

Nat was on Horse Creek stoking the stove

Spices up a Hungry Man, throws the dog a bone

Listens to the gathering wind, wonders where it’s blown

Tells his best friend I think I’ll always be alone

Find me a woman and I’ll make ‘er my wife

Find me a woman and I’ll spend my life with her

Find me someone to call my man

Find me someone and I’ll hatch a plan with him

Reckon I might and I reckon I may

reckon I could maybe someday don’t know

Reckon I might and I reckon I may

reckon I could maybe someday who knows?

Reckon I might and I reckon I may

reckon I could maybe someday can’t say

I heard you like Doc Watson

Why don’t you come over and play us a tune?

In a golden moment his songs filled the room

Nat was thinking as he played and looked at Lu

This must be what it feels like breathing on the moon

April is the perfect month for romance

Nat cooked blintzes and asparagus spears

Cut himself shaving for the first time in years

Told her his mind as he choked back his fears

She knew it was true love as she wiped away the tears

Find me a woman and I’ll make her my wife

Find me a woman and I’ll spend my life with her

Find me someone to call my man

Find me someone and I’ll hatch a plan with him

Reckon I might and I reckon I may

Reckon I will and I reckon I will Reckon I will and

I reckon I will alright

Reckon I will and I reckon I will Reckon I will and

I reckon I will just right

Reckon I will and I reckon I will Reckon I will and

I reckon I will tonight

Wasn’t long before summer came a dancing

Man and woman were pierced by Cupid’s dart

Nat said to Lu you got ahold of my heart

Lu said to Nat man this thing is off the chart

Whispered to eachother no, we’ll never be apart

Sun was shining on the man and woman

It was shining on their faces shining on their toes

Shining on their best friends shining on their clothes

Shine through the rainy season shine right through the snows

Find me a woman and I’ll make ‘er my wife

Find me a woman and I’ll spend my life with her

Find me someone to call my man

Find me someone and I’ll hatch a plan with him

Reckon I one and I reckon I two, reckon I Nat and I reckon I Lu today

Reckon I one and I reckon I two, reckon I three reckon me and you, oh yeah

Reckon I one and I reckon I two, reckon I three and I reckon I do oo oooooo

 

(New ending, 2009)

Reckon I Nat and I reckon I Lu,

takes the right kinda love to say I do and I do

Reckon I Nat and I reckon I Lu,

Took the right kind of man to say I do and I did

Reckon I’m going and I reckon I’m gone

Reckon I hear the end of this song, for now

 

Secret Ingredient

These modern ways

We modern kids

Our modern cars

These modern days

They’re all, it’s all, we’re all, I’m all

Filled with angst

Heard a little secret the other day

What it is I been dying to say

Went to the Yellow Pages looked inside

For a crystal ball woman to take me for a ride

Called her up she said you’re right on time

Roll on over and I’ll roll you a ryhme

Secret ingredient in this town

Secret ingredient rolling all around

Secret ingredient gonna mess up your hair

Rolling down the boulevard with nary a care

And it’s gonna change your head

And it’s gonna change my head

And it’s gonna change, it’s gonna change, it’s gonna change culture

 

(alternate chorus, actually the chorus is always alternate!

Secret ingredient don’t you hear the call

Secret ingredient take it off the wall

Secret ingredient come on let’s go

Make a little contribution to the Pleasant Revolution)

Point of reflection you better act fast

Point of resurrection a future with no past

Someone in your path he’s a boy with golden dreams

He’ll be an explosion and you’ll be the seams

Talking up a storm getting half of it right

He was writing on the walls with indelible light

In indelible light, in indelible light

The indelible lightness of being

Hot sassy girl went out for a cruise

To check out her pedals with her sexy new shoes

She was trading glances with a dude in a convertible

Hoping for Lance but a driver might be workable

It almost early ended when he nearly fender bended

In the trance of her booty

He said hot bike riding mama would you wanna get some foody?

She said racer man fast but he talks hella groovy

Pull on over I got room for two

He said it’s way across town I think we should drive

She said nah, it’s alright, I think I’ll just ride

He said damn, damn, damn, that ass is fine, fine, fine,

And I really wanna make it mine

She was sitting at the table twirling her hair

He was trying to park she was already there

He finally came in she said don’t worry I’m still here

I was just about to order my second beer

Cuz I ride loaded I like to ride loaded

I ride loaded, I like to ride loaded

Put your burden on the back you’ll never know if you don’t try it

Then you ride to live to love to ride it now

Take away the traffic lights leave no place to park

Learn to breathe underwater and think after dark

I see it in your future it’s a two wheeled machine

It runs on love and burns perfectly clean

Runs on love like something out of our collective dream

Secret ingredient stirring up the mix

Secret ingredient and it might just fix this

Secret ingredient could take us pretty far

Rollin’ like a hurricane let out of a jar

These magic ways

We magic kids

Our magic bikes

These magic days

They’re all we’re all it’s all I’m all

Filled with dreams

Call it a renaissance call it anything you like

A new culture’s coming and it’s coming on a bike

Hay que cambiar, hay que cambiar

El mundo, el mundo, el mundo esta en tus manos

Mis manos, las manos

 

Stuck On Earth

By kipchoge and eco

 

Estoy atrapada en el mundo terrible

Estoy atrapada pero es increible

I’m not sure I know how to love

But I’m sure I understand the subconscious intricacies of fakin’ it

I’m not sure I know how to love

But I’m sure I understand the ins and outs of makin’ it

Hey Lady

Little things wrap the days around the nights

Until the sun comes again and says good morning get up now

Love thy neighbor as thyself but I’m not sure how I feel about me

Much less somebody else

Hey Lady

If love is the entire universe, then I’m right here

I’m stuck on earth, stuck on earth, stuck on earth

I’m stuck on earth, stuck on earth, stuck on earth

I’m stuck on earth, stuck on earth, stuck on earth

With the mosquitoes and the strip malls and the pretty rivers

And the way you break down my walls

How can I love and hate

How can I love and hate

How can I love and hate the same person on the same day?

Take your pants off put your boots on

Oooh that’s how, how I like it

Turn your mind off slow the bus down

Go outside and shake the rug out

Burn the breakfast burn the walls

Open every single window

I want the neighbors to hear you moan

I’m stuck on earth, stuck on earth, stuck on earth

I’m stuck on earth, stuck on earth, stuck on earth

How can I love and hate the same person on the same day?

Swimming in your lips tasting infinity

A moment is alright but I’d prefer eternity

I’m not sure unconditional love could handle you and me

Had an apparition

of an addition to help carry the load

made an act of contrition

where the rubber meets the road

and I wish I had a crew who

could stand a band apart

an accompanying company

through the minor major flats and sharps

oh would you be my partner

keep close by my side

keep track of my stories

and tell them when I died

side by side

hand in hand

eye to eye

neck and neck

moment to moment

arm in arm

ear to ear

step by step by ste-e-e-ep

 

Total Believer

You can kiss me if you like

Kiss me now now

You can kiss me if you like and no I won’t give a damn

Because I’ll be riding slow

You know I won’t give a damn

Because I’ll be riding slow

When the sun fall down

When the sun falls down and the rain comes up and the lips that

You been kissing been missing your love

Hold on a second make sure you got it right

Before you break the world record for holding on tight

Cuz the freedom of another will never free you, free you

Walk away, walk away,

You can kiss me if you like

Walk away, walk away now

Total believer, total believer, total believer

You can kiss me if you like

Total believer,

Todo, todo, todo, todo

Your mind keeps playing the same game, same game,

Same game on you

Te encuentras encerrado entre cuatro paredes

Atrapado en un mundo que escaparse nadie puede

Un dia es como un año un año es como un siglo

Para ese mentira esta atrapado en el presidio

Y mataste a tu pro? por culpa de no ?

Tu foto en el periodico

Tu futo en el periodico en la primera plana plana plana

Your mind, you’re mine, your mind, you’re mine

Tu foto en el periodico en la primera plana

La mente, la mente, lamenté

 

Wind Goddess

Lyin’ cheatin lonely leavin love me

Rub me in the stuff that makes me shine

Brawlin crawlin barely breathing break me

Hang my saddle blanket on the line

If the world was on fire you’d be the wind goddess blowin it higher

If the world was overflowing you’d be the river keeping it going

Flying crying floatin free and fight me

Dance with me until we’re standing still

Hurtin certain hang your heart and hold me

Love me like you’ll never let me go

Lying cheatin lonely leavin love me

Rub me in the stuff that makes me shine

Brawlin’ crawlin’ barely breathing break me

Come on baby let’s do it one more time

If the world was on fire

You’d be the wind goddess blowing it higher

If the world was overflowing you’d be the river keeping it going

Raining and raining and raing and flowing

Amazon Mississippi Yangtze and the Yuba (or Nile, or what’s local) too

Reckless crazy righteous rock n roll me

Ready or not here I come again

If the world was in season, you’d be the monsoon giving it a reason

 

Why were the walls built?

How will the walls know who built them

And why they were built?

Why were they, why were they built?

How will the words know who spoke them

And why they were spoken?

Why were they, why were they spoken?

How will the notes know who sang

And why they were they sung?

Why were they why were they sung?

How will the walls know who built them

And why they were built?

Why were they, why were they built
