about

Blueskank publica la banda sonora original del documental Do It Better. Este es un trabajo diferente dentro de la ya ecléctica trayectoria de la banda, referencia en la escena nacional de música negra. El álbum incluye producciones propias y ajenas de canciones inéditas grabadas en estudios y lugares diferentes, desde Wisconsin hasta Praga, pasando por Madrid o Vigo.

En el álbum participan Ting, banda liderada por Turner y Miller Harrison, estadounidenses afincados en Praga; Golpe Tierra, formación multicultural dirigida por el venezolano Juan Tomás Martínez desde Madison (EEUU), y Elephants Yard, el proyecto coral que dirige Javier Vicente (Zamaramandi) en Galicia. Así se conforma un álbum heterogéneo que no hace más que confirmar a Blueskank como un proyecto único en el ámbito del reggae nacional. Este punto y seguido abre una nueva etapa en la banda, que seguirá expandiendo los límites de la música de raíz.

Track Name: Do it Better
You can do it better...
Everytime, my friend, I try
Time after time, I get
the things that I grew yesterday
I donñt really care where you come from
It just matters the way you are
So it´s time to be gratefull
for the things that I have got in life

You can do it better...

Why should we go?
If we have to come back with nothing
Money´s not a reason to life
´cause the lessons I learn are priceless
Music, many things many teach
Refuse it? Never, be it blues or afrobeat and
Try, Nico´s telling wise on the mic and
Smile, no gravedigger´s gonna stop any dream

You can do it better

Everyday, it just an awful game
Oh, what you´re telling me is a world in pain
but you know...
Yes we know that we can make it right
Let the people decide them way...
Let them decide...
So make it easy

Easy, nobody said it was easy
must be difficult
I want to tell you again...

Wechoose the long way, always...
Remember...remember...
Track Name: A Thin Line Song
Building walls blind us all
Ignorance is growing tall
We all need the right to decide
Set the limit, draw our lines.

How is drawn a boundary? boundary
Why do people die for them country? country
Is there a limit for for
Uh, human mind? mind
A lot of things we should leave behind
Thin line
What´s beyond a thin line?
Thin line
Remains all around / Echoes like a sound

We are all riding souls
In this life we come and go.
We all leave a soul print behind
In the story of the human kind

Every route will find a crossroads crossroads
That´s the reason why we work for work for
So here and now we merge, we stand as one
We all draw a graceful tail that shines
Thin line
What´s beyond a thin line?
Thin line
Remains all around / Echoes like a sound
Track Name: Free the Light
HOW COME SOMEBODY GOT NO HOME
HOW COME SOMEBODY GOT NO FOOD
HOW CAN SOMEBODY RULE DOING NO GOOD
HOW CAN SOMEBODY HURT… FOR SO LONG

PLEASE FREE THE LIGHT AND
LEAD I THE WAY (BACK HOME)

HOME
BACK HOME
HOME
LEAD I THE WAY… BACK… HOME

NO ONE NOW
COULD BE PROUD OF OUR RACE, NO
GREED BEFORE, WAS ASHAMING NOW THEY GET COCKY
THIEVES AND TOFFS, SOMETHIN´ BROKE AND
CAME TOO FAR SO OH OH

PLEASE FREE THE LIGHT AND
LEAD I THE WAY BACK (HOME)

HOME
COME BACK HOME
HOME, LEAD I THE WAY BACK HOME
Track Name: Wak Straight
IT´S NOT POSSIBLE TO BE A GOOD MAN
FOR EVERYONE, IN EVERY SITUATION
OTHERWISE, I BELIEVE A GOOD MAN
IS THE ONE WHO MAY FAIL
BUT TRIES AND TRIES AGAIN
TRY AGAIN, GAIN


GRACE, FOR YOU WHO DARE
BEYOND THE WALLS FROM WHERE TO STAND AND STARE
FAKE! THEM WHO PLAY
RISKY GAMES BUT NEVER RISK THEMSELVES

BETTER OR WORSE
WAR IS PEACE
PISSES ME OFF
FOOLISH! RULERS!
THESE BOOTS ARE NOT FOR WALKING FAR ENOUGH

IF YOU KEEP TRYING, KEEP TRYING
THERE´S NO REGRET, KEEP TRYING
THEN YOU WILL GET FOR SURE IF YOU TRY
KEEP ON TRYING
KEEP TRYING… RISE UP YOUR HEAD AND…

(X2) WALK, WALK, WALK, WALK... (STRAIGHT)

IT´S QUITE POSSIBLE TO BE A MEAN MAN
FOR EVERYONE, IN MANY SITUATIONS
IF YOU DON´T TAKE A LOOK AROUND BECOME

AND BECOME AWARE
YOU´RE NOT THE ONLY ONE,
NOT THE ONLY ONE, ONLY ONE

GRACE, FOR YOU WHO DARE…
FAKE! THEM WHO PLAY…


BETTER OR WORSE
WAR IS PEACE
PISSES ME OFF
THESE BOOTS ARE NOT FOR WALKING FAR ENOUGH

IF YOU KEEP TRYING, KEEP TRYING
THERE´S NO REGRET, KEEP TRYING
THEN YOU WILL GET FOR SURE IF YOU TRY
KEEP ON TRYING
KEEP TRYING… RISE UP YOUR HEAD AND…

WALK, WALK, WALK, WALK...

NO SHAME, NOT THE ONLY ONE
THERE IS NO SHAME AT ALL ONLY ONE
WALK AND LEARN NOT THE ONLY ONE
ONLY ONE
