:) je viens d’arriver de ma tournée de production avec une montagne de la musique qui tue les frontières entre les cultures et genres de musique.. Maintenant commence le travail de polir et plannifier sa naissance ce qui représente le sang de personnes à travers le monde … J’espere que la musique peut sensibiliser et augmenter la compréhension entre les êtres humains.. et servir à rompre avec cette politique de xénophobie. Merci à tous ceux qui ont invertie leur temps et leur énergie créatrice!

LYRICS
Change / Cambio / le Changement
by Renée Asteria Peñaloza & Rahman Jamaal McCreadie 2016

(translation)

Intro (English)
Change a coming
The only constant in life is the Change a coming
Don’t don’t be afraid of the Change a coming

Verse 1 (Spanish)
Dicen que el individuo no cambia
(They say that the individual cannot change)
Que somos presos de nuestras fallas de caracter
(That we are prisoners of our character flaws)
Que si intentamos es futil inutil
(And that it is useless, futile if we try)
Dejandonos sin armas, sin armas
(Leaving us defenseless, defenseless)
Enfrentando la necesidad de evaluar
(Faced with the need to evaluate)
Enfrentando la necesidad de evolucionar
(Faced with the need to evolve)
La manera de pensar de vivir y de amar
(The way of thinking, living and loving)
Qué hacemos les preguntó
(What can we do?)
Esa opresión que amara manos y pies
(This oppressive notion binds our hands and feet)
Que te hace ciego mudo y sordo
(It makes you blind, deaf and mute)
Que ni te das cuenta de tu poder
(That you are not aware of your power)
Eres capaz, puedes actuar, no dejes que te intimide
(You are capable, you can act, don’t be intimidated)
Eres capaz, puedes cambiar, se el control de tu vida
(You are capable, you can change, take control of your life)

Chorus A
Change is a coming
Don’t don’t be afraid of the Change a coming
The only constant in life is the Change a coming
Don’t don’t be afraid of the Change a coming

Verse 2 (English)
Life is the range, between joy and pain
It’s gonna take a toll, prepare yourself for “change”
Why would you train your brain to remain the same
When it has so much to gain, running the game Like Fila,instead you getting played by the dealer
Just know the older you get the more it gets realer
It’s right intention, the heightened sense of a healer
Or chrome to your dome that hits harder than a Steeler
You can choose either, without even knowing it
Thinking like a slave, or not thinking just going with
The trends, putting the ends above your friends
Til you gotta bunch of fake ones riding in your Benz
Time to change, money over everythang is lame
Don’t believe me just watch I won’t have to explain
Why fame ain’t all that when you change to entertain
But can’t exchange knowledge to arrange mental planes

Chorus A
Change is a coming
Don’t don’t be afraid of the Change a coming
The only constant in life is the Change a coming
Don’t don’t be afraid of the Change a coming

Chorus B
Life is the range between Joy and Pain
Se puede resolver de otra manera
(We can find solutions in another way)
Its gonna take a toll prepare yourself for change
Se puede vivir de otra manera
(We can live in another way)
Why would you train your brain to remain the same
Se puede pensar de otra manera
(We can think in another way)
Its gonna take a toll prepare yourself for change
Si se puede cambiar
(Yes change is possible)

Verse 3 (French)
La societe nous dit qu’on est prisonnier de notre character
(Society tells us that we are prisoners of our character)
Qu’on peut pas changer, et d’essayer serai une perte de temps
(That we can’t change and to try would be a waste of time)
Toute en vain, nous laissent sans armes
(All in vain, leaving us defenseless)
Face au besoin de commencer la revolucion et d’evoluer
(Confronting the need to start a revolution and to evolve)
Notre facon de penser de vivre et d’aimer
(Our way of thinking, of living and of loving)

Chorus B
Life is the range between Joy and Pain
Se puede resolver de otra manera
(We can find solutions in another way)
Its gonna take a toll prepare yourself for change
Se puede vivir de otra manera
(We can live in another way)
Why would you train your brain to remain the same
Se puede pensar de otra manera
(We can think in another way)
Its gonna take a toll prepare yourself for change
Si si si
(Yes, yes yes)

Chorus A
Change is a coming
Don’t don’t be afraid of the Change a coming
The only constant in life is the Change a coming
Don’t don’t be afraid of the Change a coming
