Estrella Lyrics

Chica
Sitting in the shade of a piña colada tree Describing the disease with her purple pen While the boys are skinny-dipping,she’s occupied By black-coats blasting roads through sacred lands Silenced by the anguish that dried up all her ink Her mind is disturbed by the familiar voice Chica Chica, muy bonita ¿Donde esta tu alegria? Chica Chiquita muy bonita No te hages sangre friea Writing the next chapter of her life Don’t think she’ll say a word, you’ll read her eyes While the rude are riding by on their bikes Cat-call casting greasy lures but she slips away Una chica muy bonita on the verge of letting go Chiquita’s got a lot on her mind She sees the struggle and the fights Chiquita not ready to bleed But los mosquitos need to feed Walking down the street with a mission to meet She’ll find the moment underneath her bare feet Delphi dagger of amnesty lift the sultry conspiracy Una chica muy bonita, vamos al Diablo a quitarle el chile Chica Chica, muy bonita ¿Donde esta tu alegria? Chica Chiquita muy bonita No te hages sangre friea Chiquita’s learning peace of mind She sees there’s no war to fight Chiquita’s de sangre caliente Trail of stars in the desert sky Chica Chica, muy bonita…
Star
There was a girl who fell Down the side of a hill There she lay wondering Where he’d go in his space ship All night long He’s got contagious confusion She’s got jealous delusions She doubt what she knows And she just found out She’s the star Of his scary movie Well as far as she can tell She’s making him ill Alone in his loveseat She sat in his abandoned anguish Starting to fall asleep He thinks she’s incomplete She wants him to fast and she made the cast Of his scary movie And she never gets kissed Here in her private hell She thinks she’s had her fill Of all the damn red lights And the Sampaku lifestyle He says she can’t hear She wishes he would see The reason she needs a stunt double She’s the Star She’s the star Of his scary movie
World
World coming apart at the seams A monster feeding on itself And I’m still thinking how could it be Our love did not last Our love for this earth To ourselves and our families Where did our tradition slip to With the glamour and the greed Loose your mind come back to your senses We are what we want to be All polished by what we’ve seen And I’m still thinking how can we make Moves skeptics won’t suspect Our lives will evolve to acknowledge kindly Ancient allies will remind us We have all we need Loose your mind come back to your senses Years fly by we hardly took notice of those Changing leaves disappearing with our trees Years fly by we hardly took notice of our Changing needs out of sync with our deeds Loose your mind come back to your senses
Heroes
Here we are alive in such an interesting time Major events occurring in our lives Our voices must be lifted Up and out of our narrow isolation Planets aligned are pulling Up and out what we’ve been hiding You and I must believe in our ability to change Time to grow and look beyond the mirror Use our talents for noble deeds The chaos predicted is Up and out from within us Our hearts will help us move Up and out what we’ve been hiding You and I must believe in our ability to change We’ll change the messages that Keep us down and barely breathing We’ll change the ideas that Govern us and keep us fooled We’ll be heroes walking side by side The chaos predicted is Up and out from within us Our hearts will help us move Up and out what we’ve been hiding You and I must believe in our ability to change
El Salvador
Desperte de un sueno al timbre de la puerta Pase adelante anjel vestido De hombre humilde ofreciendo cancion Dando requerdos del pais de mi mami, El Salvador Sentido unido espero cantando van a levantar Communida unida, da le sabor Commmunida irida, tenga valor Deja ver la hente vacillos y dar cuenta Pase adelante dale los que valle La vida ofreciendo cancion Caminado por las calles del pueblo Cojute, El Salvador Sentido unido espero cantando van a levantar Communida unida, da le sabor Commmunida irida, tenga valor La verda del pasado a veces es feo La fuerca que traje nos hace bello Ahora tomamos el paso Hacernous hermanos Desperte de un sueno
Fever
I’m running a high fever I just woke up and found I slipped off the grid I’m seeing things in the ether I haven’t been the same since I met you I’ve been looking at my life Thinking “How Divine!” All the hardships got me ripe Goddess in the sky says its no lie And I believe her I just woke up and saw los angelitos Say psycho-spiritual explorer You have to make the move towards something new I’m plucking old strife like thistle seeds Off the lapel of my heart Got to realize it’s al1 right Goddess in the sky says its no lie And I believe her I haven’t been the same since I met you
Los Muertos
Night terrors strike again So many times I wish I knew the words To break the spell, what the hell A night of terror might do me good Still think I’ll start to participate Tell how I feel, voice my mind But at my side something strange And I just wish the scene would change Los Muertos Malditios All rotten with false needs Los Muertos Malditos Running loose in my dreams Had a dialoge with death and I Realized with him at my side I got lustier for life and that’s all right, it’s not evil being bad Still got the mutilated mental fantasies that Leave me cold at night and when I wake up I find the horror In my Daily News Los Muertos Malditio All rotten with false needs Los Muertos Malditos Running loose in my dreams Karma came around to bite And Mr. Grim announced that The change won’t kill me But to look out for the tricks With mirrors, it might disease me Destiny tried to keep my tied And fate tried to trill me But I won’t let those Malditos Tease me Los Muertos Malditios All rotten with false needs Los Muertos Malditos Running loose in my dream
Electric Car
Today I tossed my TV The negative media corroded the tubes The televised turmoil had lost its luster There was nothing left to do Me and my electric car Driving down the boulevard Me and my homegrown solar car Driving down the boulevard Looking for people, looking for people Looking for people who make TV Into art or a useful tool Traffic was tight SUVs walled the view Our careless consumption Was out of control The corporate corruption Had the whole world on hold Me and my electric car Driving down the boulevard Me and my homegrown solar car Driving down the boulevard Saw another electric car Parked at the electric station The guy was fine and he took TVs There was help from those who see Our careless consumption Was out of control The corporate corruption Had the whole world on hold Today I tossed my TV
