Eh, Dame la mano

Voy pa’la’orilla
Al orilla del mar
Voy a bañarme yo
En el agua de Yemaya
No queda casa
Ni donde dormir
No queda nada,
pero con ganas hay que vivir

En el temblor
En el temblor se cae todo
En el temblor
Ampárame me estoy cayendo
En el temblor
En el temblor se’sta cayendo todo Ampárame me estoy cayendo

Eh, Dame la mano

Track Name: Pan Y Circo
Pan y Circo (lyrics: M. Perna)

All eyes on the tv
Mesmerized by the games we see
Caught up in fanaticism
A New kind of tribalism

Cause there’s so much money to be
Million dollar salaries to be paid
So much hype and merchandise
Just a piece of humble advice

This is how the ancient Romans controlled the population
Too obsessed with sports
to think about liberation

It’s the same old trick,
In a different time
History repeats itself
And we remain blind to the

Pan y, circo
Bread and circuses, Bread and circuses
Pan y, circo
Bread and circuses, Bread and circuses

The Stadium we had was no good
Built the new one on top of my neighborhood
We teach our kids that violence is the norm
As long as they wear a uniform

Athletes above the law,
I guess these gladiators don’t need know right from wrong
Olympic games smothered in logos
Just another tradition left with no soul

And this is how the ancient Romans
controlled the population
Too obsessed with sports
to think about liberation

The same old tricks,
In a different time,
History repeats itself,
And we remain blind to the...

Pan y, circo
Bread and circuses, Bread and circuses
Pan y, circo
Bread and circuses, Bread and circuses
Track Name: Agua Santa
Agua Santa, limpiame
Agua pura, limpiame

Quitame el mugre
quitame'el problema
Quitame la sed

Quitame el lodo
Quita mala vibra
Quitame la sed

Agua Santa, limpiame
Agua pura, limpiame
Track Name: Contigo Jamas
Contigo Jamás (lyrics: M. Perna)

Ya recibí tu mensajes
Ya leí tu correo
Ya comí los chocolates
Y rompí todas las fotos
Ya boté las flores que me enviaste
Pero no, no me someto a tus dulces hechiceras

Ya no me’atrevo meterme contigo jamás
Ya no me’atrevo, ya no me atrevo más

Ya no me’atrevo meterme contigo jamás
Ya no me’atrevo, ya no me atrevo más

Ya tengo pareja
Una mujer que me quiere,
Yo soy un hombre casado
que respetas el matrimonio
Pero nunca olvidaré
Nuestras travesuras
Tu encanto
y tu dulzura
Pero lo que paso paso,
las cosas ha cambiado

Ya no me’atrevo meterme contigo jamás
Ya no me’atrevo meterme contigo jamás
Ya no me’atrevo meterme contigo jamás
Ya no me’atrevo meterme contigo jamás

Contigo jamás
Contigo jamás
Contigo jamás
Track Name: Nessuno
Nessuno Si Ribella (lyrics: M. Perna)

Nessuno si ribella.
Nessuno si ribella.
Nessuno si ribella.
Nessuno si ribella.

Solo gli’migranti lo fanno.
Solo gli’migranti lo fanno.
E facendolo difendono
la cittadinanza per tutti gli popoli

Difendono il diritto
di lavorare e di vivere
difendono il diritto
il diritto della terra
difendono il diritto
il diritto della terra

Solo gli migranti lo fanno.
Solo gli migranti lo fanno.
E facendolo difendono
la dignitá per tutti gli popoli.

È hora di imparare
dai nostri fratelli,
organizzare
unisca la lotta

mai dimentichiamo il loro coraggio
mai dimentichiamo il loro coraggio
mai dimentichiamo il loro coraggio
mai dimentichiamo il loro coraggio
Track Name: Guantanamo
Lyrics: Marcos García

Guantánamo

We own the key
Take you to your room
We lock the door
And watch over you

Guantánamo

We bring you in
Show you all around
Stay awhile
So you can’t be found

Guantánamo

Be our guest
For secret holiday
Package includes
Endless nights and days

Guantánamo

Every day is full
As you will see
Come be our guest
Indefinitely

Guantánamo

The safety of a locked gate
Sequestered Cuban estate
The life that I want to take
Is mine, mine, mine
Mine, mine, mine


The skin on my bones -→ enemigo
Massaged for the truth → combatiente


The palms in the sun → enemigo
Confessing to you → combatiente


The dirt on my skin → enemigo
Is hidden away → combatiente

The ocean whispers → enemigo
The price that we pay → combatiente

The price that we pay → enemigo
The price that we pay → combatiente

The safety of a locked gate
Sequestered Cuban estate
The life that I want to take
Is mine, mine, mine
Mine, mine, mine


The charge / that was never brought
The bill / that can never be paid
The food/ they force me to eat eat eat
The beast/ that I’m made to be

The cage/ gets hot in the sun
The hands/ that pull out my hair
The dogs/ they’re flashing dey teeth, teeth, teeth
The men/ that make me disappear

Everyday is complete
The price that we pay
Everyday is complete
Mine, mine, mine
