 Across the Universe
Words are flying out like
endless rain into a paper cup
They slither while they pass
They slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow waves of joy
are drifting thorough my open mind
Possessing and caressing me

Jai guru deva om
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world

Images of broken light which
dance before me like a million eyes
That call me on and on across the universe
Thoughts meander like a
restless wind inside a letter box
they tumble blindly as
they make their way across the universe

Jai guru deva om
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world

Sounds of laughter shades of life
are ringing through my open ears
exciting and inviting me
Limitless undying love which
shines around me like a million suns
It calls me on and on across the universe

Jai guru deva om
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Jai guru deva

>"Baba O’Riley" The Who v/s Pearl Jam v/s Alter Bridge v/s Nirvana

>

Baba O’Riley, fue escrita por Pete Townshend (si, el de la foto), primera guitarra de The Who, apareció en 1971 en el disco álbum Who’s Nex, a esta cancion se le conoce erroneamente como “Teenage Wasteland”, por la repeticion de esta frace en el coro, el nombre deriba de las infuencias filosóficas de Meher Baba y las influencias musicales de Terry Riley. Una gran canción por la potente energía que se propaga cuando es tocada, Pearl Jam a través del cover que realizan logra emitir esa clase de energía.

Baba O’Riley
Out here in the fields
I fight for my meals
I get my back into my living.

I don’t need to fight
To prove I’m right
I don’t need to be forgiven.
yeah,yeah,yeah,yeah,yeah

Don’t cry
Don’t raise your eye
It’s only teenage wasteland

Sally, take my hand
We’ll travel south cross land
Put out the fire
And don’t look past my shoulder.

The exodus is here
The happy ones are near
Let’s get together
Before we get much older.

Teenage wasteland
It’s only teenage wasteland.
Teenage wasteland
Oh, yeah
Its only teenage wasteland
They’re all wasted!

Smooth Criminal
As he came into the window
It was the sound of a crescendo
He came into her apartment
He left the bloodstains on the carpet
She ran underneath the table
He could see she was unable
So she into the bedroom
She was struck down
It was her doom

Annie are you ok?
Are you ok?
Are you ok annie?
Annie are you ok?
Are you ok?
Are you ok annie?
Annie are you ok?
Are you ok?
Are you ok annie?

Annie are you ok?
Won’t you tell us, that you’re ok
Knew by the sound of the window
That he struck you
A crescendo annie
He came into your apartment
He left the bloodstains on the carpet
Then you ran into the bedroom
You were struck down
It was your doom

Annie are you ok?

What a black day
Mouth to mouth resuscitation
There would be
No intimidations

 Hurt
I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that’s real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liar’s chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here

What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way
