lyrics

moneditas de metal
moneditas de cobre
pedacitos de oxido
ni dejara una mancha en

el polvo a que volveran
y por ella van matando
acumulando, juntando, robando
gastando la vida que es unica (gastando la preciosa vida)

cuanto mas van ganando y ganando
y ganando y ganando
y poniendose primero, primera

cuanto mas van perdiendo y perdiendo
y perdiendo y perdiendo
y poniendose ultimo

es un tesoro temporal
para bichos comida
falsa, externa, olvidada
la ambicion que se entierra

buscando vida real
buscando vida eterna
pero cuando empiezara
digo yo que hoydia

English:

Little metal coins
Little copper coins
little pieces of rust
that wont even leave a stain on

the dust to which they will return
and for this they go on killing
acculating, saving, stealing
wasting their one life (wasting their precious life)

the more they go on winning and winning
and making themselves first
the more they go losing and losing
and making themselves last

its a temporal treasure
for the little bugs its food
false, external, forgotten
the ambision that gets burried in the ground

searching for real life
searching for eternal life
but when would that begin?
i say that its today!

about

Ears to the Ground Family Harrisonburg, Virginia

Ears to the Ground Family is a minimal, totally acoustic group with guitar, hand percussion, and banjo. They have a serious focus on lyrical content and sometimes achieve a body-shivering vocal harmony. They make music of resistance to oppression and empire, of communities of hope, and of a faith that sustains us. Our tunes draw from R&B, spiritual, soul, folk/americana, chant, hip-hop, and jazz. ... more
