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...

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

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.
