Track Name: Don't Silence Me
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: Papa Knows
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: Citizen
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: Bionic
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: Dejame
DEJAME

1ST VERSE-
Escrito en tu cuerpo esta el codigo secreto
anelado y sagarado un afirmacion de tu ser
porque sera que tu amor se mide
con dolor y no con fe, dime
con tu boca pistola disparame
y dime la verdad, sin maldad

CHORUS-

Dejame respirar
me estoy mareando con tu sinceridad
besame por una ultima vez para olvidar
dejame caminar
que me toca la hora de aprovechar
desatame de tu red y sueltame, dejame

2ND VERSE-
Si te digo que tu sonriza me confunde
te moririas de la riza? dime, dime
si me tienes guardado con candado,
te tragarias la llave? ay, porque?
ese tatuaje en tu espalda de una estrella gris
me alumbra en esta oscuridad
en la misma oscuridad que me abrasa
porque sin ti no estaria perdido
si ya se adonde estoy, mama
estoy aqui, estoy aqui

REPEAT CHORUS-

BREAK-
si vivir es morir, vivo mas cada dia,
cada hora, cada segundo que estoy contigo
con permiso, que me despido

REPEAT CHORUS-
Track Name: Moto
MOTO

1ST VERSE-
Ya no puede subir mas esta temperatura
Y ahorita mismo sin control el amimal se me escapa
En este momento no hay tiempo para pinches romances
Ven acercate mamita que es el ultimo chance
Yo no quiero ser vulgar, Pero te veo con ansiedad
Tengo algo para ti y te lo voy a poner ahi
a ver si te va a gustar mas

CHORUS-
Subete a mi moto (na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na)
Que me estoy volviendo loco (na-na-na-na-na-na-na)
Dejate de cosas (na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na)
Que estas muy sabrosa (na-na-na-na-na-na-na)

2ND VERSE-
Olvidate de lo moral y vente sin restriccion
Porque si tu fueras mi novia romperias mi corazon
Si yo fuera tu novio te partiria el alma
No tendremos esos problemas si nos vamos a la cama
Yo no quiero ser vulgar, Pero el tiempo se nos va
Una noche de placer no tienes nada que perder
solo la duda de lo que pudo ser

REPEAT CHORUS-

3RD VERSE-
No me digas que te vas asi solita a tu casa
Yo te voy acompanar para que no te pase nada
Y me portare muy bien sere un caballero
Si cambias mente de repente en seguida me encuero

REPEAT CHORUS-
Track Name: Nuevo Y Barato
NUEVO Y BARATO

1ST VERSE-
(aqui en Hollywood)
donde camino sobre las estrellas de marmol
debajo de un cielo de sueños sin cumplir
(mirame a mi)
un cigarillo en la mano y en la otra un papel
pero en mi mente es una lata de pintura
(just like Travolta)
el papel es una fortuna china que dice
(todo saldra bien)
todo saldra bien mal
(bien mal)
si la depresion es un jacket, la soledad es un calzon
y la noche como un ladron me desnuda

CHORUS-
Nuevo y barato, nuevo y barato (nuevo y barato)
y que me dure un rato
nuevo y barato (nuevo y barato)
nuevo y barato, nuevo y barato (nuevo y barato)
que si no, me mato (nuevo y barato)
nuevo y barato

2ND VERSE-
(entrando en un bar)
me ubico entre dos damas (2 ladies)
y me volteo a la derecha
y le digo a una dama (1 lady)
no quiero nombre, no quiero “como estas”
solo quiero una aventura
(y con eso me da) una bofeta
y la otra me pega tambien
(porque ella no es original)

REPEAT CHORUS-

3RD VERSE-
(entrando al taxi)
cierro la puerta y se abre otra vez
y veo la cara de un angel
ella me pide un ride
en cambio por un cafe (con leche)
y un pedazo de biscocho
y el dentista me dijo quidado con los dulces
(diversion con proteccion) that’s right

REPEAT CHORUS-

mama said they’d be years like this, oh yeah...
Track Name: El Asesinato de Don Juan
EL ASESINATO DE DON JUAN

1ST VERSE-
Aqui estoy media noche disco boy
atrapado en una excusa de escape
buscando nada no vine a comprar solo a ver
a ver si voy a poder
Dos mas y el juicio se me va
a la cama con la dama remate
si no queria comer que hago yo en la cocina
con mi horno guante

CHORUS-
Dulce caramelo superstar
generalisima infidelidad
last call maleficio psychosexual
ah-ha, ah-ha, ah-ha
esta noche voy a morir

2ND VERSE-
Bomba, doy un salto para atras
con mi angel de la muerte presente
encadenada a su mal, pareja reja despega,
vine a conquistar
mama elimino distancia
con un paso techno/michuacano
cibaeno solo yo no me importa el dueño
quien sea le bajo la mano

REPEAT CHORUS-
Track Name: Trancos en la Senda
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: Lastnite (Cinderella)
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: Yo Te Conozco
YO TE CONOZCO

1ST VERSE-
Sin un valor en el bolsillo ni un peso en el recuerdo
he tenido amigos peores de los cuales me he olvidado
Las cosas no, no, no cambian y la gente mucho menos
tu eres un perro en el medio de la calle y yo un camion – salte de ahi –

CHORUS-
Yo te conozco, no te hagas el loco
te parto el coco, yo te, yo te...

2ND VERSE-
Has tenido el benifio de dos caras,
mi sacrificio es tu ganancia –
si he perdido fue porque di mi espalda sin punal
lo que paso, ya paso y ahi quedo (y se enterro)
tu eres espiritu odiado y yo el santero - salte de ahi -

REPEAT CHORUS –

BRIDGE-
Castigos justos no dan gusto
y la venganza nunca me complacera
nunca he sido un hombre violento
pero si me cruzas te voy a matar
lo huro te voy a matar
Track Name: Adios L.A.
ADIOS L.A.

1ST VERSE-
Espanta sueños canta el gallo
soundtrack de mi vista perpendicular
voy flotando en un pozo de saliva
cuando el olor me da (y me pega otra vez)
me enderezco con la amenaza del dragon
y comienzo a recordar
de la potencia y del volumen de la noche anterior
en la cual trate de olvidar (a lo que vine)
te has parado en este cuarto basurero
el calendario colgado (sofocandome)
con sus meses rayados hay poco tiempo aqui,
pero alguien dime que dia es (alguien dime)

CHORUS-
Adios Los Angeles, Adios
Adios Los Angeles
Yo solo quieria escribir
yo ni se como llegue aqui
no tengo historia, nada que decir
yo solo queria vivir

2ND VERSE-
Martes mi amigo, aqui estamos de vuelta
y esta vez sera el fin (el fin, el fin)
soy un caracter sin arco, sin resuelvo y sin tercer acto
(no hay derechos reservados
y la segunda parte no estrenara aqui)
Personajes sentados en habitaciones,
en todas partes del mundo
mirando a la pared sin tener a donde ir,
ni nada que sentir (y nada que decir)

REPEAT CHORUS-
si solo pudiera algo sentir
no estuviera tan cerca de morir
yo no se si puedo ya...
yo solo queria escribir

REPEAT CHORUS-
Track Name: Human What?
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...
