Ojos Inocentes

from Una y Otra Vez by Sergent Garcia

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Sergent Garcia, a heavyweight in the European mestizo music scene, returns with his first full- length album in five years with the groundbreaking Una y Otra Vez (Time and Time Again). A pioneer in blending the fiery Caribbean sounds of salsa, reggae, ska and dancehall with a punk attitude and continental style, Sergent Garcia's latest musical adventure finds him traveling to Colombia to dive into what is currently the epicenter of some of the world's hottest sounds. Una y Otra Vez marks this former rocker's return to his independent roots with a renewed creative energy.

    The physical CD is packaged in a 6-panel digipak with a 32 page booklet including lyrics, translations in 3 languages, and Sergent Garcia's stories about the songs. Purchase also includes immediate download of 14-track album in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire.

    Full digital liner notes included with download.

lyrics

Préstame tus ojos inocentes
Para ver más allá del horizonte
Donde el hombre nace libre y vive libre
Y no se asusta de la muerte

Mas allá de la montaña existe una tierra (x4)

Préstame tu lengua de luz y humildad
Para que tu sabiduría llene mi soledad
Para que tu manto culto se extienda
Por la paz del mundo traéme paz a la tierra

Préstame este mundo que el pánico no cunda
Préstame este mundo y le hago propaganda
Te prometo, lo prodigo toda la promoganda
Del underground de la raza que nunca abandona

Tengo a mi lado esa raza de guerreros
Que se alza orgullosa y no se da por vencida
Ya no pueden callar mas, ellos reclaman mas
Esa voz solo dice, que ya no aguanta mas

Préstame palabras inocentes
Pa’ cantar mas allá del horizonte
Donde el hombre nace libre y vive libre
Y no se asusta de la muerte

Mas allá de la montaña existe una tierra (x4)

Translation:
Lend me your innocent eyes
I want to see the world with a different perspective
My eyes have seen so many misfortunes
They only want to rest for a moment in peace

Let me dream that I am someone else
Let me escape from this world without a face
Let me see how the rain falls in streams
Let us clean up all this mud

Lend me your innocent eyes
To see beyond the horizon
Where man is born free and lives free
And is not afraid of death

Beyond the mountain there is a land

Lend me your language of light and humility
So your wisdom might fill my loneliness
So that your blanket of beliefs can spread
So that the peace of the world brings me peace on Earth

Lend me a world that does not foster stress
Lend me this world and I’ll make propaganda
I promise, I lavish all promoganda on it
From the underground of the people that will never leave it

I have by my side this race of warriors
Which stands proudly and is never defeated
They can no longer be silent
but they demand more
That voice that just says, I can’t take it anymore

Lend me your innocent words
To sing beyond the horizon
Where man is born free and lives free
And is not afraid of death

Beyond the mountain there is a land
