quicksand

i think we lost direction




https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mf1uAMPETH8



i left my home in Tamaulipas
in Sonoyta i came across
there was but 6 of us when we started
walking behind the coyote boss

(man's name was Javier, he didn't look right to me.
said 'keep on walking get your coke jug')

an old man said please let me go along with you
yes i'm old but i'm mighty tough
i know the road and maybe i can help you
i got good shoes i won't hold you up

1st night we stopped and rested
next morning our guide was gone
the Sinaloa boy was for retreating
the old man said, the mountain's on the right we can't go wrong

but somewhere up on Tenahas Altas, he stumbled and then he fell
he begged and he pleaded but we had to leave him
lyin on Camino Diablo trail

quicksand i think we lost direction
quicksand now we're losin ground
quicksand nobody round to help us
i think we're sinking down

thought we was getting close to Yuma
i heard it's an unfriendly town
we just need a cool drink of water
even Yuma can't turn a poor boy down
then a Dodge Ram truck drove right down on us
sayin I'm your vigilante man and i'm here to say your ass just got deported
i'm taking you out just as fast as i can
he said you might be an old typhoid carrier
might be a new drug cartel
suppose you been sent by al kayeda
sure would like to get our hands on Al

well mister it's 120 degrees back out there
it's just me and the boy, the rest are gone
i think you'd take more pity on rescue pit bull dogs
calll us Charles and Bronson from now on

Has this song already been posted?

I always liked its groove when I was a kid, but only now I see the lyrics are downright insurrectionist! :shock:

(Lyrics often go right past me; I'm mostly listening to the instruments "and anyway who can understand the words??--with Frank Sinatra you could understand the words!--and they call that music??")

While I sit here trying to think of things to say

Image

Someone lies bleeding in a field somewhere

Image

So it would seem we've still got a long long way to go

Image

I've seen all I wanna see today

Image

While I sit here trying to move you anyway I can

Image

Someone's son lies dead in a gutter somewhere

Image

And it would seem that we've got a long long way to go

Image

But I can't take it anymore

Image

Turn it off if you want to

Image

Switch it off it will go away

Image


Turn it off if you want to
Switch it off or look away

Image

While I sit and we talk and talk and we talk some more

Image

Someone's loved one's heart stops beating in a street somewhere

Image

So it would seem we've still got a long long way to go, I know
I've heard all I wanna hear today

Image

Turn it off if you want to (turn it off if you want to)

Image

Switch it off it will go away (switch it off it will go away)

Image
Turn it off if you want to (turn it off if you want to)
Switch it off or look away (switch it off or look away)

Image
Switch it off

Image
Turn it off

Image

even then they didn't take babies away from their mothers

And if it happens here they'll never come for you
Because they'll know you really didn't care



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EIc-Lsyn8hY

Early every year the seeds are growing
Unseen, unheard they lie beneath the ground
Would you know before their leaves are showing
That with weeds all your garden will abound?
If you close your eyes, stop your ears
Shut your mouth then how can you know ?
For seeds you cannot hear may not be there
Seeds you cannot see may never grow
In January you've still got the choice
You can cut the weeds before they start to bud
If you leave them to grow high they'll silence your voice
And in December you may pay with your blood
So close your eyes, stop your ears,
Shut your mouth and take it slow
Let others take the lead and you bring up the rear
And later you can say you didn't know
Every day another vulture takes flight
There's another danger born every morning
In the darkness of your blindness the beast will learn to bite
How can you fight if you can't recognise a warning?
Today you may earn a living wage
Tomorrow you may be on the dole
Though there's millions going hungry you needn't disengage
For it's them, not you, that's fallen in the hole
It's alright for you if you run with the pack
It's alright if you agree with all they do
If fascism is slowly climbing back
It's not here yet so what's it got to do with you?
The weeds are all around us and they're growing
It'll soon be too late for the knife
If you leave them on the wind that around the world is blowing
You may pay for your silence with your life
So close your eyes, stop your ears,
Shut your mouth and never dare
And if it happens here they'll never come for you
Because they'll know you really didn't care

With a teenage diplomat
In the dumps with the mumps
As the adolescent pumps
His way into his hat
