The NEW SHOT for JAN 2011: SHU-SHO "Alive"

To begin 2011 we're gonna go all the way live! En vivo and in your face, SHU-SHO "Alive" is a collection of live cuts from several different shows. Raw, dirty, uncut, in your pocket and coast to coast (Boston to Santa Monica) we rock the classics from the Spigga days and a few of the later jams thrown in for gits and shiggles. Past and present SHU-SHO members on these ditties include: John Cornelius (Bass and Vocals), Benji Molina (Drums), Darren Lolk (Guitar and Vocals), Troy Coston (Drums), Carla Pereira (Vocals), Leo Machado (Bass and Vocals), Tara Price (Vocals), Jaswho? (Keys, Guitars and Vocals) and Giovanny Blanco (Vocals). Download these tracks and pretend like you were there. No cover, no drink minimum - just download and dance.

Track Name: Don't Silence Me (Live)
DON’T SILENCE ME

1ST VERSE-
Subas el Volumen que lo que hay entre tu y yo
no se oye (No sound no life)
Es dificil no estar de acuerdo si no entiendo
lo que dices (what you say)
Tu tenacidad se ha evaporado hasta tu sombra
se esfume (fades away)
Es raro me hace falta tu insinceridad
Antes tenias motivos de comunicarte conmigo
Tus mentiras han fallecido

BRIDGE-
Empty is my life of sights and sounds
that satisfy me (me satisfen)
Your voice, rejoice (tu voz)
Sigh and cry, and your laugh
The way you sing and your scream
(la-da-da, la-da-da, hey)

CHORUS-
If I’m out (if I’m out)
just cut me gently (no me calles la boca, mama)
Don’t silence me
If I’m out (if I’m out)
just cut me gently (no me gusta el silencio, mama) Don’t silence me, oh no

2ND VERSE-
Tu supuesta inocencia no me interesa porque se
que no existe (does not exist)
Yo ni santo, ni Don Juan, solo un poquito haragan
Pero eso y que (who gives a shit)
No quiero fe, ni quiero tu piedad solo quiero que me hables una ultima vez (just one last time)
Dime de una vez lo que sucedio
Para yo saber si pedirte perdon o salida
Y guardame la despedida

REPEAT BRIDGE AND CHORUS-

BREAK-
Distance between us is defined by sound
but funny how the sound of nothing
somehow sounds really loud
(I know) I wasn’t easy to comprehend
but I only wanted to be
your one and only true friend (yeah)

REPEAT BRIDGE AND CHORUS-
I loved you once, I loved you twice,
I loved you every goddamn night
The sweat, the wine filled up our time
and now you shut my mouth tight.
Track Name: Bionic (Live)
BIONIC –

1ST VERSE-
Why are we doing this again,
you know it’s not the end, it’s barely beginning
‘Cause every little thing we do
comes back to me and you so let’s stop pretending
Say goodbye to the cherry tree
get the dust off your tongue
and I won’t run away with me
‘cause 6 is 9 and 2 is 1 you know that

-CHORUS-
Our love, our love (love)
they say it’s super strong
it’s bionic (bionic, bionic)
all the games that we play end the same
because this love is bionic
(bionic, bionic)

2ND VERSE-
On the day that we first met,
we made our separate bets
on who would do the leaving
15 surprises and a scare
and 7 double dares and here we are still breathing After the 19th nervous break
in liquid sky surround
We fall into familiar faces we,
we fall into the ground until we come around ‘cause

REPEAT CHORUS

Our love is bigger than the both of us
bigger than the sun and the rain
so, let’s turn to stone
so we could be alone together
and never separate

our love, our love, our love
you can make, fake or take it
but you will never break it

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: Citizen (Live)
CITIZEN

1ST VERSE-
Queridos hermanos, yo les quier decir
Soy extranjero en mi propio pais
Dile al gobierno y al senado
que estoy cansado de este mal trato
y al policia que guarde su energia
que si me paro hoy lo llevo al diablo

CHORUS-
Soy cuidadano americano
soy cuidadano americano

2ND VERSE-
Nacido aqui, criado aqui
me he cagado aqui y me muero aqui
esto es lo mio, tuyo tambien
are you my friend? pues to’ ta bien, que no?
y a los encargados, hay que respetarnos
porque esta familia sera la mayoria

REPEAT CHORUS-

BRIDGE-
You can’t see my green card ‘cause I don’t need one
you can’t see my green card ‘cause I don’t have one

BREAK-
Hey mister, listen
it’s none of your business
where I was born
so you’ve been warned
where’s my gente en Miami
Arizona y Nuevo Mexico
Oakland y San Pancho
Cali Sur con San Diego
Dallas and San Antone
El Paso y Houston
New Jersey, Connecticut y Boston
hasta en Portland hay raza por monton
Chicago no cago
por todos los lados
y Nueva York?
Brooklyn, Manhattan, Washington Heights y el Bronx
y que Los Angeles
South Central hasta Pomona se ve
y el resto de America
ya es hora de levantar

REPEAT CHORUS-
Track Name: LastNite (Live)
LASTNITE (CINDERELLA)

1ST VERSE-
Open your eyes that’s what Penelope said
in that movie ‘bout the guy
with nightmares in his head,
so I do then I see you, yes I do
You’re a sleeping Parker Posey
but with really short hair
with the exception of a t-shirt
you are pretty much bare,
then there’s that tattoo
now I remember, I mean I think I do
thoughts stagger through my head
as I stumble on the floor
I grab my shoes and my jacket
and head out for the door
and I look back at you
and you’re looking right at me too

CHORUS-
And if you dream of being Cinderella,
well, thank you for your time
but I think I’m gonna be on my way
But if you believe that nothing lasts forever,
I’ve got 5 bucks in my pocket
that say you and I will be OK

We gonna be just fine, all the time

2ND VERSE-
You opened your mouth
and a word escaped
it was coffee and I said, “yes”
and I knew that I would stay for a while -
especially when you politely smiled
you said, “make yourself at home
and give me just a sec”
so I looked through your CD’s
while I prayed for cognizance and a sign
(that is) of the times, disk 2 track 2
So, you poured a cup o joe
and we talked for a bit
you thought I didn’t care
I just couldn’t remember shit
I said, “what’s this all about?”
you said,
“don’t let the door hit you on the way out”,
damn

CHORUS-
And if you dream of being Cinderella,
well, thank you for the coffee
but I think I’m gonna be on my way
But if you believe that nothing lasts forever,
I’ve got 5 bucks in my pocket
that say you and I will be OK

When I say I can’t believe
that I’m with somebody like you,
I mean as cool as you, I mean as pretty as you

3RD VERSE-
I stand outside your door
when it all comes back to me
I was defending your honor at the bar
in exchange of your company
and a drink with me
if I recall you agreed
well, I ain’t gonna lie
and say it was my first one night stand
but I feel that it was different
and I know if you let expand on this and come inside
(or can I call you some time?)
Well, you open the door
and run your hands down my face
you say, “I don’t want to give you my number,
I don’t want to play these games
but if you ever feel lucky
I might see you at the same place,
with the same crime”
I say, “forget about exchanging numbers
and getting lucky and all that
‘cause if I leave here right now, mama,
you know I won’t come back” –
so, what do she say to that? –
she didn’t say a damn thing
she turned around, turned around and smiled
REPEAT CHORUS-
Track Name: Papa Knows (Live)
PAPA KNOWS

1ST VERSE-
Nobody menciona mi nobre
por temor que vaya aparecer
Nobody sabe si soy hombre
o un superheroe
Calculado pero misterioso,
delicado pero sin duda peligroso
Even my shadow’s afraid of me...because

CHORUS-
Yo soy el mejor (I'm on top)
Y aqui me quedare (and this is where I'll stay)
I'm the numero one bandido
y tu corazon me robare
Yo soy el mejor (I'm on top)
No te olvides (don't you forget it)
There really is no one else like me,
no one's supposed to be

2ND VERSE-
Everybody sabe que puedo ser tu mejor amigo
Everybody sabe si quieres algo te lo consigo
I'm cool and invencible,
con un beso and a wink para despedirme
I'm always at only exactly
where I really want to be...because

REPEAT CHORUS-

BREAK-
Dicen that I've got a secret
Te lo digo if you promise to keep it
I'm sure there might be much better
but nobody looks as good as me

REPEAT CHORUS-
Track Name: Happenstance (Live)
HAPPENSTANCE

Verse1:
So you’re sayin’ there’s no use in stayin’
Que no estas satisfecha y te piensas ir
So you’re thinkin’ it’s all about you
Y despues de todo you’ve been through
No vale la pena y debes salir
Y que mas, quisas, something gained, something lost
Y con tiempo sufficiente te olvidaras de mi
So you’ve learned a few tricks
Like keepin’ all them stones and sticks
Palabras no perjudican si no se van a oir

Nuestro destino manifestao se ha parao pero el tiempo sigue
Y con la suerte se baila pegao, so

Chorus:
Get up, get out and get to
If it comes back whatchu gonna do?
You gonna die or you gonna dance?
(Happenstance, happenstance)
get on, get down and get with it
if it comes by are you gonna jump in it?
Or are you gonna leave it all to chance?
(Happenstance, happenstance)
step up, step out and step to it
whatchu gonna do if the first time you blew it?
You gonna let it bite you in your ass?
(Happenstance, happenstance)

verse 2:
so you’re tryin’ to cover up the lyin’
si tu eres actriz yo se dirigir (Scorsese, baby)
so you’ve been playin with others
and ahorita you’ve discovered
que nadie te trata como yo he te he tratado a ti
now I’ve moved on and on been up and in it for so long
y todavia tu no quieres verme feliz

Nuestro destino manifestao se ha parao pero el tiempo sigue
Y con la suerte se baila pegao, so

Chorus:
Get up, get out and get to
If it comes back whatchu gonna do?
You gonna die or you gonna dance?
(Happenstance, happenstance)
get on, get down and get with it
if it comes by are you gonna jump in it?
Or are you gonna leave it all to chance?
(Happenstance, happenstance)
step up, step out and step to it
whatchu gonna do if the first time you blew it?
You gonna let it bite you in your ass?
(Happenstance, happenstance)
y ahora mismo estoy colando café y esta vez sera la ultima vez
are you gonna get up off your ass
(Happenstance, happenstance)
(Happenstance, happenstance)
Track Name: Trancos En La Senda (Live)
TRANCOS EN LA SENDA

1ST VERSE-
Como esclavo de los dias
me extraña poder escapar lo banal
soy huraño de sangre
dos puños y un esqueleto en la mentirilla colosal
siento la lluvia lavarme del mal
donde otros solo suelen mojarse
el sol es mi hermano y la luna mi amante
tu fe es mi enemigo y asi me tiro

CHORUS-
(Trancos en la senda en la escala hacia el mas alla)
Un paso p’aqui, un paso p’alla
y cuando esto se acaba no es el fin pero el final
(Trancos en la senda en la escala hacia el mas alla)
el proceso del presente
y la traza de lo que vendra, vendra

2ND VERSE-
Señalo con un dedo a la bodega espacial
a la izquierda del cielo
mi cigarillo es la brujula y la cenizas son las pruebas
de una doctrina consumida
con la mente en el bolsillo
invento un aparato anti-oscuridad
el alma infalible se traga la cancion
del corazon resusitado

REPEAT CHORUS-

Como un cojo en un mundo ambulante,
aparte de los demas a mi propio compas
trancos en la senda y tragos para el mar
sueltame de tu nube
de tu incertidumbre nube
que la gravedad se ocupara de mi
para siempre
que caiga, que caiga, que caiga
Track Name: Señora (Live)
SEÑORA

Soy el cazador and you’ve been runnin’ circles ‘round the pack
Soy comandante and you’ve been waiting for the right command
Te necesito more than you can ever understand
Te hare una oferta and I will meet each and every demand
Lo que yo quiero is to legalize your contraband
Y te lo digo cause I’m the baddest spigga in the last
BREAKDOWN TO LOVE
Dile a you mama y a you papa que te voy a llevar
Dile a you mama y a you papa que te voy a llevar
Dile a you mama y a you papa que te voy a llevar a la casa

Would you be my, would you be my…
Would you be my, would you be my…
Senora

Este es el trato but there’s no contract for you to sign
El compromiso is something that you can’t ever deny
Lo que tenemos you can’t kill it if you tried
No sera facil but there’s no better way to die

BREAKDOWN TO LOVE
Dile a you mama y a you papa que te voy a llevar
Dile a you mama y a you papa que te voy a llevar
Dile a you mama y a you papa que te voy a llevar a la casa

Would you be my, would you be my…
Would you be my, would you be my…
Senora

Is there something bigger than love
Track Name: P.O.T.S. (Live)
PEOPLE OF THE SUN

If the people of the sun wanna get down, get down with the people of the sun…

Vamos abrir la occasion con abierto Corazon y sin temor
Que ya es hora de clarificar
El principe lo canto, lo pasado, noy hay rancor
Yo no me quiero vengar

Con la dureza y la mente de maleta de las sierras Africanas a lo Azteca
Como ha cambiao to’ y no ha cambiao na’ (desde el 1492)
(Taino, Taino) no me digas (no me digas que ‘ta to’ bien)
si los parasitos y los buitres son los que exigen, cuidadito comejen
Fuimos lo violao, damnificao y olvidao pero todavia estamos aqui parao
(dejalo atra que el futuro aqui ya ‘ta) imperfecto pero el nuestro pa’ mi gente

Esto es pa’ la gente del sol – we’re coming back around again (ah-ha) Pa’ mi gente!
Esto es pa’ la gente del sol – we’re coming back around again (ah-ha-ah-ha)

If the people of the sun wanna get down, get down with the people of the sun…

Borron y cuenta nueva solo abrenos la puerta, queremos entrar
No hay quien nos pare y ten cuidao que el que se mete se mata
Si los errors cometidos son los mismos repetidos alguien va pagar
No hay que pelear, pero el que hable que lo piense y que diga la verdad

Estoy cansao de comer cuentos, sigue tirando aire que te va llevar el viento
Y ahi e’ donde yo entro (el mayimbe superman y a la gente represento)
Todas las razas y todo colores, to’ la risa y lo Dolores
Para el amor de mis amores, mi famila (hey!)

Repeat Chorus

Ending chants:
Si le das lo que quieren cuando quieren, siempre van a querer mas, mas…

Nunca vas a ver lo que tienes, nunca va saber vo que das
Nunca vas a ver lo que quieres, si siempre estas mirando atras
Deje lo que pase que pase que eso nunca regresara
Y si alguna vez se repite esta vez tienes que aprovechar…

Cuando salga el sol todos veran y cuando salga el sol, veran verdad.
Track Name: Human What? (Live)
HUMAN WHAT? -1ST VERSE-
I can’t believe what is going on en mi casa y en la calle
(what’s going on, little brother, what’s going on)
I can’t believe what is going on - todo en mi mente esta hecho un desastre
(you gotta pick up the pieces, little brother and everything will be alright)
feelin’ like my days are nuimbered - someone’s gonna come for me
and everybody’s dying ‘cause I saw it on my TV
I can’t believe what is going on - Diosito santo ten piedad
(what’s up with your head - you gotta get up outta bed) –
BRIDGE “A”-
nothing will ever be the same (get up, get up - c’mon motherfucker get up, get up) everything’s definitely changed
CHORUS
everybody feel down tonight - everybody feel down tonight
2ND VERSE
and if I try to make sense of it, explain it, contain it, se me escapa
(where has the love gone, where is the love)
and if I try to get used to it - I start freakin’ y la sanidad se derrota
(where has the fun gone, where is the fun)
porque esta realidad tirania se ha tragado mi corazon
it’s really hard to feel resourceful (when you’re insecure and all alone) that’s right REPEAT BRIDGE “A”-
REPEAT CHORUS-
BRIDGE “B”
Oh my, is this our destiny we see
or is it just death and taxes in the land of the free
is it our nature to stand up after the fall
where is the jury who’ll bring justice to us all
3RD VERSE
I’m not what you call a fighter
and I don’t believe in war (left, left, left right left)
and if the breeze comes around to get me, so you know, I won’t go
(if they won’t go when I go then I won’t go when they go) that’s right
REPEAT BRIDGE “A”
REPEAT CHORUS
REPEAT BRIDGE “B”
who will be the witness, who will be the toll
can somebody tell me who will rock and who will roll
who is the blame and who is the one
who will clean this up when this whole damn thing’s said and done
who will tell the children what was right and what was wrong
will it even matter when we’re gone, gone, gone, gone, gone
We shall overcome - unidos, unidos jamas seremos vencidos...
everybody feeling down tonight...
