Diga Que Valeu, o Nosso Amor Valeu Demais




Diga Que Valeu
Chiclete Com Banana

Composição: Fredson

Um beijo em você eu quero dar
Saudade presa no meu coração
Eu ando louco alucinado
Muito doido e apaixonado por você
É pena que esse amor
Não possa mais ficar
É pena que esse amor
Não vá poder se eternizar
Então diga que valeu
O nosso amor valeu demais
Foi lindo, ficou pra trás
Então diga que valeu
O nosso amor valeu demais
Que pena, ficou pra trás
Faz tanto tempo que eu te conheco
Mas você mudou comigo
Faz tanto tempo que eu te conheco
Mas você mudou comigo
Minha flor bonita, minha linda flor

*Saul Williams* "Ohm"

ohm" is chanted in long drawn out syllables throughout the song)

[Saul Williams]
through meditation I program my heart
to beat breakbeats and hum basslines on exhalation
*Saul beatboxes* "ohm"
I burn seven day candles that melt
into twelve inch circles on my mantle
and spin funk like myrrh
*Saul beatboxes* "ohm"
and I can fade worlds in and out with my mixing patterns
letting the Earth spin as I blend in Saturn
niggaz be like spinning windmills, braiding hair
locking, popping, as the sonic force
of the soul keeps the planets rocking
the beat don't stop when, soulless matter blows
into the cosmos, trying to be stars
the beat don't stop when, Earth sends out satellites
to spy on Saturnites and control Mars
cause niggaz got a peace treaty with Martians
and we be keepin em up to date with sacred gibberish
like "sho' nuff" and "it's on"
the beat goes on, the beat goes on, the beat goes "ohm"

and I roam through the streets of downtown Venus
trying to auction off monuments of Osiris' severed penis
but they don't want no penis in Venus
for androgynous cosmology sets their spirits free
and they neither men nor women be
but they be down with a billion niggaz who have yet to see
that interplanetary truth is androgynous
and they be sending us shoutouts through shooting stars
and niggaz be like, "Whattup?" and talking Mars
cause we are so-lar and regardless of how far we roam from home
the universe remains our center, like "ohm"

I am no Earthling, I drink moonshine on Mars
and mistake meteors for stars cause I can't hold my liquor
but I can hold my breath and ascend like wind to the black hole
and play galaxaphones on the fire escapes of your soul
blowing tunes through lunar wombs, impregnating stars
giving birth to suns, that darken the skins that skin our drums
and we be beating infinity over sacred hums
spinning funk like myrrh until Jesus comes
and Jesus comes everytime we drum
and the moon drips blood and eclipses the sun
and out of darkness comes a *Saul beatboxes*
and out of darkness comes a *Saul beatboxes*
and out of darkness comes the

A Modern Day Quest

In between the internet and eternity there lies our inhibitions as humans right now...How does that manifest itself?! Heres a small voyage:

Northern Chile
Andes
Revelations
Cuzco
Quechua
Inca Empire
Pachamama
Yatiri
Shaman
Aymara
Chile
Mapuche
Kalku
Wekufe...


...and I quote Wikipedia...

"The Wecufes would be beings who would have originated themselves of the forces or energies that have tendency to disturb and/or to destroy the balance of universe; and unlike the living being and other spirits, the Wekufes would be the only beings whom soul does not have.

The wekufes would give magical powers him to the Kalkus (sorcerer mapuche), to be used to become get sick or to kill. For it, the Kalku would cause that the Wekufe is introduced to the body of the person. The Kalku would be crew member of wekufes, and the Kalku most powerful would inherit the Wekufe spirit of ancestor that also was Kalku. The Kalkus also uses to his wekufe to catch and to enslave to the souls of the deads that are not protected.

In order to cure itself of wekufe, the sck person receives the aid of the Machi (mapuche Shaman)."

Machi

Which ultimately brings me back to:

Religion (and once again I quote Wikipedia):

"A religion is a set of beliefs and practices generally held by a community, involving adherence to codified beliefs and rituals and study of ancestral or cultural traditions, writings, history, and mythology, as well as personal faith and mystic experience. The term "religion" refers to both the personal practices related to communal faith and to group rituals and communication stemming from shared conviction.

All patriarchal religions present a common quality, the "hallmark of patriarchal religious thought": the division of the world in two comprehensive domains, one sacred, the other profane. [1] Religion is often described as a communal system for the coherence of belief focusing on a system of thought, unseen being, person, or object, that is considered to be supernatural, sacred, divine, or of the highest truth. Moral codes, practices, values, institutions, tradition, rituals, and scriptures are often traditionally associated with the core belief, and these may have some overlap with concepts in secular philosophy. Religion is also often described as a "way of life".

The development of religion has taken many forms in various cultures. "Organized religion" generally refers to an organization of people supporting the exercise of some religion with a prescribed set of beliefs, often taking the form of a legal entity (see religion-supporting organization). Other religions believe in personal revelation and responsibility. "Religion" is sometimes used interchangeably with "faith" or "belief system,"[2] but is more socially defined than that of personal convictions."

"All truth passes through three stages:
first, it is ridiculed;
next it is violently attacked;
finally, it is held to be self-evident."
