Occidentali's Karma

Essere o dover essere
Il dubbio amletico
Contemporaneo come l'uomo del neolitico
L'intelligenza è démodé
Risposte facili…
Dilemmi inutili…

AAA 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 (Alé!)
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

AAA 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 (Alé!)
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!

Lezioni di Nirvana
C'è il Buddha in fila indiana
Per tutti un'ora d'aria, di gloria (Alé!)
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

Ommmm...

Westerners' Karma

To be or ought to be
The Hamlet-like doubt
As contemporary as Neolithic man
Intelligence is démodé
Easy answers…
Useless dilemmas…

Wanted: tales with a grand finale
We hope (hope, yes!)
Whatever happens, panta rhei
And singing in the rain

Nirvana lessons
There's Buddha in single line
Yard time for everyone, their time of fame (Allez!)
The crowd chants a mantra
Evolution is stumbling
The naked ape is dancing
Westerners' karma
Westerners' karma
The naked ape is dancing
Westerners' karma

Wanted:
Virtual humanity
Sex appeal (sex appeal)
Whatever happens, panta rhei
And singing in the rain

Nirvana lessons
There's Buddha in single line
Yard time for everyone, their time of fame (Allez!)
The crowd chants a mantra
Evolution is stumbling
The naked ape is dancing
Westerners' karma
Westerners' karma
The naked ape is dancing
Westerners' karma

When life loses focus
Men fall
Westerners' karma
Westerners' karma
The ape rises

Namaste, Allez!

Nirvana lessons
There's Buddha in single line,
Yard time for everyone, their time of fame (Allez!)
The crowd chants a mantra
Evolution is stumbling
The naked ape is dancing
Westerners' karma
Westerners' karma
The naked ape is dancing
Westerners' karma

Ommmm...
