Occidentali’s Karma

Attempt at translation (btw I have spaced this correctly in my edit, and it looks great there, unfortunately the spacing doesn’t even show on the page, so I am sorry about WordPresses spacing flaws…)

 

To be or to have to be
The doubt of Hamlet
As contemporary as Neolithic man
Get comfortable in your 2×3 cell
Intellectuals in coffee bars,
Internetologists
Honorary associates in the anonymous meetings of selfie-addicted
Intelligence is out-of-date
Easy answers
Worthless dilemmas.
A.A.A Seeking, seek, yes
Grand end-time stories
Hoping, hope, yes
Whatever happens, everything flows
And singing in the rain.
Nirvanic lessons
There is Buddha in single file
Recreation time for everyone, glorious.
The crowd shouts out a mantra
Evolution stumbles.
The naked ape is dancing
Karma of  the Western civilization
Karma of  the Western civilization
The naked ape is dancing
Karma of  the Western civilization
Drops of Chanel is raining down
on sterile bodies
Save yourself from the smell of your own kind
Each person is a know-it-all thanks to the web
The peoples cocaine
Opium for the poor
A.A.A Seeking, seek, yes
Virtual humanity
sex appeal, sex appeal,
Whatever happens, everything flows
And singing in the rain.
Nirvanic lessons
There is Buddha in single file
Recreation time for everyone, glorious.
The crowd shouts out a mantra
Evolution stumbles.
The naked ape is dancing
Karma of  the Western civilization
Karma of  the Western civilization
The naked ape is dancing
Karma of  the Western civilization
When life consists of distractions
Humanity falls
Karma of  the Western civilization
Karma of  the Western civilization
The ape gets back up
Namaste, yeah!
Nirvanic lessons
There is Buddha in single file
Recreation time for everyone, glorious.
The crowd shouts out a mantra
Evolution stumbles.
The naked ape is dancing
Karma of  the Western civilization
Karma of  the Western civilization
The naked ape is dancing
Karma of  the Western civilization
(Original Italian)
Essere o dover essere –
il dubbio amletico
Contemporaneo come l’uomo del Neolitico.
Nella tua gabbia 2×3 mettiti comodo
Intellettuali nei caffè
Internettologi
Soci onorari al gruppo dei selfisti anonimi
L’intelligenza è démodé
Risposte facili
Dilemmi inutili
A.A.A. Cercasi (cerca, sì)
Storie dal gran finale,
Sperasi, (spera, sì)
Comunque vada, panta rei
And Singing in the Rain
Lezioni di Nirvana,
C’è il Buddha in fila indiana,
Per tutti un’ora d’aria, di gloria.
La folla grida un mantra,
L’evoluzione inciampa,
La scimmia nuda balla;
Occidentali’s karma,
Occidentali’s karma,
La scimmia nuda balla,

Occidentali’s karma

 

Piovono gocce di Chanel
Su corpi asettici,
Mettiti in salvo dall’odore dei tuoi simili.
Tutti tuttologi col web,
Coca dei popoli,

Oppio dei poveri.

 

A.A.A. Cercasi, (cerca, sì)
Umanità virtuale,
Sex appeal, (sex appeal)
Comunque vada, panta rei

And Singing in the Rain.

 

Lezioni di Nirvana,
C’è il Buddha in fila indiana,
Per tutti un’ora d’aria, di gloria.
La folla grida un mantra,
L’evoluzione inciampa,
La scimmia nuda balla,
Occidentali’s karma,
Occidentali’s karma,
La scimmia nuda balla,
Occidentali’s karma.
Quando la vita si distrae,
Cadono gli uomini.
Occidentali’s karma,
Occidentali’s karma,
La scimmia si rialza.
Namasté , alé!
C’è il Buddha in fila indiana,
Per tutti un’ora d’aria, di gloria.
La folla grida un mantra,
L’evoluzione inciampa,
La scimmia nuda balla,
Occidentali’s karma,
Occidentali’s karma,
La scimmia nuda balla,
Occidentali’s karma.
