ahi atras

Written By: Makrú

Ahí Atrás

Hoy te he visto mirar atrás otra vez la carretera volverse empedrao bajo tus pies
hoy te he visto retroceder cultivar tus vegetales para poder comer
a ti no te cuesta volver atrás tu te encuentras mas agusto y no te falta de ná
no necesitas lidiar con hospital solo te vas a dar un paseo al bosque con el shaman y te da de fumar
pa tu cuerpo y tus cosas no necesitas electricidad todo se carga solito con energía solar
un solar es lo que quieres pero sin edificar y si acaso un arbolito donde poder descansar

I wanna be the next one
who got more having less
there is no need to waste
if you can, you can share, you can share

Hoy te sigo pa aprender como vivir es un poco diferente a como yo aprendí
AGUA TIERRA AIRE FUEGO todo lo que necesito en este juego sino ya volveré luego y me cuentas
las radiaciones químicas como te sientan de que te alimentas si acaso lo intentas
no te cuenten cuentos tu sabes lo que es cierto tu eres parte del cambio 99%

I wanna be the next one
who got more having less X2
there is no need to waste
if you can, you can share, you can share

Carga la pila ahí atrás
Todos vivimos ahí atrás
Todos venimos de ahí atrás
Era mas simple si ahí atrás
No es tan difícil ahí atrás
Todos venimos de ahí atrás
Era mas simple si ahí atrás
Hoy te he visto ahí atrás
Hoy te he visto ahí atrás
Hoy te he visto ahí atrás
