Track Name: Chica
Sitting in the shade of a
pina 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

...

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

...
Track Name: 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

She’s the star
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
Track Name: 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

Lose 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

Lose 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

Lose your mind
come back to your senses
Track Name: 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
Track Name: 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

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
Track Name: 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
Track Name: 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 fe el, voice my mind
But at my side something strange
And I just wish the scene
would change

Los Muertos Malditios
All rotten with fals e 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
tha t’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

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
Track Name: 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

...

Saw another electric car
Parked at the electric station
The guy was fine
and he took TVs
There was help
from those who see
