Each day that I wake I give thanks

De Nos invités, 22. novembre 2018

 



Patience.
Patience.
Tout est là.
Les bonnes choses arrivent aussi vite et nombreuses que la vitesse à laquelle nous les embrassons.
Paisibles.

"We’re on assignment
Bodies on consignment
Return them to the circus
And what is the purpose ?
What is the purpose and would you believe it ?
Would you believe it

[...]
If you knew what you were for
And how you became so informed ?
Bodies of info performing such miracles
I am a miracle made up of particles
And in this existence
I’ll stay persistent
And I’ll make a difference
And I will have lived it."



Les paroles au complet de cette chanson de Nahko Bear and Medecine for the people :

"[Verse 1]
Lend your ears, lend your hands
Lend your movement, anything you can
Come to teach, come to be taught
Come in the likeness in the image of God
’Cause you can be like that
With all that humbleness, and all that respect
All of the power invested in me
Be it hard to love my enemies
All of the black bags over the heads of the dead and dying
The more I understand about the human race
The less I comprehend about our purpose and place
And maybe if there was a clearer line
The curiosity would satisfy
Time-based prophecies that kept me from living
In the moment I am struggling
To trust the divinity of all the guides
And what the hell they have planned for us
I cry for the creatures who get left behind
But everything will change in a blink of an eye
And if you wish to survive
You will find the guide inside

[Verse 2]
I go back and forth every single day
The clarity it comes to me in the choppy waves
As the feelings and the places
And the seasons change
The galaxies remain
Energy fields pullin’ up out of this space
The angels that are composting the spiritual waste
The hate that gets me displaced from my spiritual place
Ten fold the manna when the planets are in place, in polar alignment
We’re on assignment
Bodies on consignment
Return them to the circus
And what is the purpose ?
What is the purpose and would you believe it ?
Would you believe it

[Pre-Chorus 1]
If you knew what you were for
And how you became so informed ?
Bodies of info performing such miracles
I am a miracle made up of particles
And in this existence
I’ll stay persistent
And I’ll make a difference
And I will have lived it

[Chorus]
Aloha, Aloha Ke Akua, Ke Akua
Aloha, Aloha, Kuleana, Kuleana
Aloha, Aloha Ke Akua, Ke Akua
Aloha, Aloha, Kuleana, Kuleana

[Verse 3]
I’m not a leader, just a creature
Seeking the features of a teacher
Whether you follow or whether you lead
All mysterious ways of nature and I’m into it (I’m into it)
Changing management (oh)
And there are various ways to conquer this monotonous metropolis
My stubbornness is bottomless
My fearlessness is talking shit
And I’m wide awake (I’m wide awake)
And I’m taking names (And I’m taking names)
Do you speak to me like you speak to God ?
All of the love and understanding between the father and the son ?
Do you believe in the perfectness of where you are ?
These are my people, these are my children
This is the land that I would fight for
My solidarity is telling me to patiently
Be moving the musical medicine around the planet in a hurry
’Cause there’s no time to wait (there’s no time to wait)
I gotta to wake up my babies, time to stand up and say

[Pre-Chorus 2]
We know what we are for
And how we became so informed
Bodies of info, performing such miracles
I am a miracle, made up of particles
And in this existence
I’ll stay persistent
And I’ll make a difference
And I will have lived it

[Chorus]
Aloha, Aloha Ke Akua, Ke Akua
Aloha, Aloha, Kuleana, Kuleana
Aloha, Aloha Ke Akua, Ke Akua
Aloha, Aloha, Kuleana, Kuleana

[Post-Chorus]
Each day that I wake
I will praise, I will praise
Each day that I wake
I give thanks, I give thanks
Each day that I wake
I will praise, I will praise
Each day that I wake
I give thanks, I give thanks

[Outro]
And the day that I don’t wake up
And transcend the holy make-up
I am capable, I am powerful
The day that I don’t wake up
And transcend the holy make-up
I am on my way to a different place

The day that I don’t wake up
And transcend the holy make-up
I am capable, I am powerful
The day that I don’t wake up
And transcend the holy make-up
I am on my way to a different place

The day that I don’t wake up
And transcend the holy make-up
I am capable"
