Track Name: To the Earth's Core
TRASH OUT!
LIXA FORA!
TOUCH DOWN!

Welcome now to the Earth's core
far from Los Angeles I speculate
searching high and low
for the treasure, for my mind
I think I see my kind

It's my wallet I've found it I found my dear wallet
It's my wallet I've found it I found my dear wallet

TRASH OUT!
LIXA FORA!
TOUCH DOWN!

All of our trash dumped in the core, disappears
Crap profiteers going in too, to the core
Let the purification and healing begin, we feel light
and we dance Mak Yong, legalize it!

It's my wallet I've found it I found my dear wallet
(you cannot make a dance illegal, no no no)
It's my wallet I've found it I found my dear wallet

Melt away

TRASH OUT!
LIXA FORA!
TA FODA!
TO THE EARTH'S CORE
Track Name: Elastic Stares
[INTRO]
we got here on time but you're not opening up
at your door, how hard to we have to knock?
and we're singin' on the stairs and we're waitin' for you to come out
and the neighbors are wondering if we'll manage not to start singing LOUD
'cause they're chilling in their flats while we're wreaking havoc most elastically

if we're not elastic then life becomes shit
if we're not elastic then life is just shit
if we're not elastic then life becomes shit
if we're not elastic...

so we better be elastic x 4

[REINTRO]
Are ya havin' a snugfest in there? Is that why you're not comin' out?
Are ya havin' a snugfest in there? Is that why you're not comin' out?
Come out.
Open up, open up, open up. Open up, open up, open up.
Ultra-elastic (rubbers). It's your onomastic (rubbers). Go recycle your plastic (rubbers). You're so far from monastic.
so you better be elastic (we'll be singin' on the stairs for eternity) x 4
we'll just be here on the stairs as long as it will take, just take your little time
Track Name: East Village
Have you ever been to the East Village?
Have you ever been to the East Village?
I have only been to Brooklyn
I have only been to Brooklyn

How long is the subway ride from Brooklyn to the lower East Side?
Should I must I go?
How long is the subway ride from Brooklyn to the lower East Side?
I need to know

Have you ever been to the East Village?
Have you ever been to the East Village?
I have only been to Brooklyn
I have only been to Brooklyn

mini-solo

How long is the subway ride from Brooklyn to the lower East Side?
Should I must I go?
How long is the subway ride from Brooklyn to the lower East Side?
I need to know

When I go, when I go to
I would like, I would like to
eat a toasted bagel with cream cheese and lox
I think I've never ever ever tried lox

When I go, when I go to
I would like, I would like to
eat a toasted bagel with cream cheese and lox
I think I've never ever ever tried lox

I went to the market to buy a big glazed donut
as a rabbi walked in
my curiosity rose
and I asked him to his face...

Hey Mishopotkey, have you ever been to the East Village?

Hey Mishopotkey stuck up there on a tree
cross over to the bagel place, gay kakendorf en yam
don't hock me a chainick
you know you're matzo ball soup is gettin' really really cold

kreplach on your mind, you're making me faklempt
oy vey iz mir, oy vavoy

To the village I go, To the village I go, To the village I go
To the village I go, To the village I go, To the village I go

Hey Mishopotkey, gay kakendorf en yam!
Track Name: Where d'ya live yo?
muz, where d'ya live?
you wanna know, yo, yeah,

I'm in one hundred cells near the tower of slaves
the tram it goes to Termini to terminate your soul
yeah, mothafucka, terminate your soul
the tower of slaves in REVOLT, REVOLT!

It takes so many minutes to arrive
I think I live too far from the inner city life
Pigneto, San Lorenzo, that's the hood I should be in
but all my homies say that I should stay and
fight like a brave, don't be a slave, no-one can tell you, you've got to be a brave

WHERE D'YA LIVE YO?
'ROUND THE FLOWERS
WHERE D'YA LIVE YO?
MOVE AND SHAKE

discovering a new zone
breaking down the prejudices-dices-dices
this is the east side, like east LA,
and I'm not to be afraid of the place my dad was raised (FREDDY OF THE PINE)
but it's a long ride and the time it is a-fleetin'
I look out the back window as the tram it goes a-skeetin'
with a tug on my rug like a rugged tug tug
like Campbell's Veggie Soup

WHERE D'YA LIVE YO?
'ROUND THE FLOWERS
WHERE D'YA LIVE YO?
MOVE AND SHAKE

when there ain't no stimulus outside,
no aesthetic beauty to be easily seen,
you gotta look more into your mind to find
two palm trees with no leaves green

what's the magic posho? free up with lotion!
COLORS ARE THERE, THE MAGIC IS HERE!
my hair is gettin' brighter as my birdies steal your lighter
and you know you can't fight her
she's p-birdie, a prima ballerina
and she drums by the sea of sicily
three birdie feet, swingin so sweet
whoa the third, it's walkietalkiebird

his riddim's not rigid, he'll loosen you up
as he looks in your eye, arrows go by
makin' you fly, makin' you fly
my oh my

WHERE D'YA LIVE YO?
'ROUND THE FLOWERS
WHERE D'YA LIVE YO?
MOVE AND SHAKE
Track Name: Swimming Underwater
oh oh oh swimming underwater
nothing's gonna haunt me, oh my
just a shark that might catch my eye

oh oh oh swimming underwater
lookin' for a coral that shines
a new wallet might spice up life

birds and bees, bird zombie, birds and p-, birds and me
birds dumpy, bird chunky, bird funky, bird like me

surf conditions lookin' good
with a swell comin' from the north
a sensation just like flyin'
take a duck dive

+reintro+

oh oh oh swimming underwater
passing all the whitewash above
turtle dive then the wave picks up

oh oh oh sunlight underwater
glowing down to turn my fins up
like a mystic I swim down the PCH

Venice Beach, Huntington Beach
Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach
Zuma Beach, Newport Beach,
Laguna Beach, Seal Beach and La Jolla

and we ride all of the breaks
'til something bling bling down there catches my eye
let's all pop up, up for air
then go back down

go deep down, so deep down, keep paddling, keep paddling!
Track Name: Canopy Dream
a night, a night, a night at
sea
seaweed surrounds us
savannah beckons

------

brave fish fly by us, brave fish they wonder
how three could see
light-free

you birds are lying down looking up at us, at our underbellies
while we're in looking down
Ouagadougou to Dédougou
after all this is your dream and you can do what you like

------

awaken by light of the canopy

------

awaken by light
Track Name: Eine Kalte Geschichte
Warum essen wir die Ziege nicht?
Es ist so kalt verstehst du nicht?
Sie ist so warm wie ein Sommertag
Kuschel dich mit ihr in den Schlaf

Kalt, Kalt, ist es!

Warum essen wir die Fledermaus nicht?
Es ist so kalt verstehst du nicht?
Sie ist so warm wie ein Sommertag
Kuschel dich mit ihr in den Schlaf

Kalt, Kalt, ist es!

Schlafend des nachts in des Schlössleins Turm
Sterne ans Fenster malt der Eisige Sturm
Mein Kissen aus Daunen nun hart wie Stein
in drei Schlafanzüge, in sechs Schlafanzüge,
in acht Schlafanzüge, in zehn Schlafanzüge kriech ich rein

Eine Kalte Geschichte
Track Name: Perejil
Which side of the genocide you on?
You cannot deny our sacred loop.

It's not clear cut, the blade is dull, our necks are strong and dense
We do not live in white and black, the colors they all mend

Cambodian buddists march out to the countryside
Go work the fields now, evacuate third eye

CHORUS

Ottomans falling, sultan loosing steam
Ordered Armenians to keep quiet and die
Sunday ethnic cleansing, how do you say parsley?

CHORUS

The hidden hellish realities, Darfur hundreds still in need
and I cry inside for both sides

CHORUS
All mend, Amen
You cannot deny our sacred loop.
Track Name: Cajaffari
Cajaffari cajaffari cajaffari
tutti i carusi ca mi piacciunu aya vvasari
Cajaffari cajaffari cajaffari


quannu mi virunu mi vasanu
poi sinni vanu ppe’ loru stradi

quannu mi virunu mi vasanu
poi sinni vannu e nun la taliari (nun la taliari)


allora iu mi ricu Cajaffari u munnu ‘ppi’ quali vessu la ya pigghiari


mi susu na matina e minni vayu a travagghiari
poi pigghiu ‘na scocciatoia e calo rittu o mari


ma u suli ca iu viru a nenti mi fa' pinsari
'ppi futtuna mi scuddai chiddu cav'a' 'ffari
Track Name: You Should Reproduce
I could just melt
by the beauty
and the tenderness of that fleeting evening
memories weave thru the trees

now i need to sit down
take a moment alone
yes I need to sit down
soak up and feel what that was
an uprising towards avant-garde skies

you look up for an answer while the economy's shot to hell
and I can't afford sex nor love

twisted neck like a swan
I'll just keep my head tucked 'tween my blades
places you can not reach and should not

in this park there's a magic silence, park your mind
in this park there's a magic silence, so inviting

ride the moon
to the truth
the universe in your uterus
the universe and your mom say:

YOU SHOULD REPRODUCE!
I SAY "UH UH UH"
YOU SHOULD REPRODUCE!
I SAY "NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO"

I'll reset my alarm
to when I'm 81
so you can all stop insisting

28,000 eggs that will not fecundate, such a gravely evil act (at 35 years old)
so arrest me for Corpus Lutem, papal bastards!
roman catholic crusades of forced procreation, if you don't you're satan
world a mess with over-fertilization.
Pope, abort your mission!

I'm exorcising my weaknesses while exercising my femininity
Martin Rodbell like Prometheus, ovarian reserve on fire

My birth control pills have expired but I'll keep taking them hoping to give birth to a song to be remembered by. Be the father of my song.
If you reject me again then I'll go back to sleep and fuck you in my dream.
